      • Make Ribbon tabs space efficient - Collapse 'Tell me what you want to do' for narrow windows

        The 'Tell me what you want to do" label (along with the Share and Comments buttons) takes up so much horizontal space that it hides most Ribbon tabs when the window is a narrow size. Understanding that not all spreadsheets are displayed full-screen all the time, it would be great if this label collapsed down to something much smaller when the window size is narrow. (Other ribbon controls could also be made more useable for narrow windows by following the lead of how Windows Excel displays its ribbon controls on narrow windows).

          • What is going on with this program?

            This morning, as I was reading through the news on my Mac, Excel began to start itself randomly. I thought it might be time for an update, so I downloaded and install 2, but it still starts itself repeatedly. Quitting the program does not help, it just starts back up. The only way I can stop this is to minimize the window and park it in the Dock.

              Please supply us with a contact phone number for 365 for MAC EASILY found! I had to literally dig for a while and still don't know if they know anything about 365 with a MAC. Your help features on line are only for Excel 2016. That does NOT help me with a MAC 365.

              • REMOVE the permanent "Color" in all rows and columns or at least make it user friendly to remove!!!!!!!

                REMOVE the permanent "Default Color" in all rows and columns when downloading an excel spreadsheet from a financial institution or at least make it user friendly, so i can figure out how to remove them! I cannot locate the "TABLE" TAB that you so diligently describe in your HELP section!!!!!

                            ust moved from Office Mac 2011 to 2016 kicking and screaming, with the loss of the ability use keyboard rather than right click for inserting columns or rows. You can click "=3+3" with manually adding the + sign ...REALLY ?? Finally the whole suite is sludgy and SLOW... The tool bars are graphically hard to read compared to the old GUI. Not to mention you have to flip back and forth trying to find things that used to at your finger tips like the view screen or other frequently used things on laptops. HORRIBLE HORRIBLE! Does Microsoft test these things…

                            • Put back the function

                              Please put the function for addition back on Excel - the one where you hit "=", then highlight the column of numbers, then hit "=" again and it adds up for you. It is way more efficient than what you have now.

                                  I work in an international environment and I got the following issue concerning date formatting:

                                  On MacOS, the code set used for number/date... formatting (and also for separators in formulas and default delimiters when opening CSV files) is based on the "region" parameter set up in the region & language preferences of MacOS.
                                  In my case, I often share Excel files with people whose preference are set to "France" or "United Kingdom" or "USA" according to the person.

                                  In English environment, code for "year" is yy or yyyy. But in French environment, it becomes…

                                  • Ability to name and place icons on macros added to the Quick Access Toolbar

                                    When a macro is added to the QAT, it displays as a circle in the toolbar. Add another, you get another circle. Unless you memorize what you added and the order you added them, you don't know what you're selecting. The list for customizing the QAT shows them as <<No label>>. You can name them with the Rename option on gear at the bottom of the dialog, but they revert back to no label after you exit the dialog.
