  2. Disable F1 key

    When using a new MacBook pro (with the virtual F-Keys) it would be terrific if there was an option to eliminate or disable the F1 key. F1 results in a Help popup, which interrupts the user’s work on Excel. In many financial roles, analysts, et al, would physically remove the F1 key from their keyboard as F2 is a very common key for auditing formulas in cells.

  5. Add PowerPivot for Macs.

    I've seen this has been a complaint going back for years and it never seems to be addressed. I am quite confident that Microsoft has the resources to provide the same functions across Mac and Windows.

  7. Customize Touch Bar

    Please add the option to "Customize Touch Bar" for MacBook Pro's. It's usually found under "View" in just about any other application, but unfortunately not within Microsoft Office products.
    While Excel does have a set of standardized Touch Bar buttons, you can't change them to what you might use most often, rendering it fairly useless.
    Apple has had a Touch Bar feature since 2016 so it's not exactly a new feature. I understand that Apple is a competitor, but please put the "Customize Touch Bar" feature into your products!

  8. Have UNIQUE() optionally ignore blanks

    The new UNIQUE(), SORT() and SORTBY() functions are incredibly useful and they save a lot of time. It would be helpful though to allow UNIQUE() to optionally ignore blanks. I use UNIQUE() to build named arrays dynamically which I can use as a validation list for data validation. At the moment I have to create the list (e.g. SORT(UNIQUE(<some column in a table>)) and then created a Name using OFFSET() to ignore the blank at the start of the sorted list.

  9. Scrolling in EXCEL vba editor

    EXCEL 2019 Mac:
    when working on a small screen, the scrollbar in the EXCEL vba editor is so short that using it to scroll through a large macro module is very difficult. At the same time, the response to the mouse scroll wheel is so minuscule that it is close to useless - It would be nice if at least the <page up> and <page down> keys on the keyboard were working!

  11. Please provide Power Query and Power Pivot as a regular feature for Mac

    Importing data from other workbooks, using power query and then analyzing data using power pivot are the critical features needed by professionals for any data analysis. I got very disappointed after shifting to Macbook and paying of office 365 and not getting access to. these functionalities in excel. This is taking macbook users for a ride, though we are paying full for the MS office and not using it for free. I RECOMMEND EVERY MAC USER TO VOICE DISSENT FOR NOT GETTING ACCESS TO ALL FEATURES OF MS OFFICE DESPITE PAYING FULL PRICE.

  12. insert hyperlink to words or phrases within a cell NOT the entire cell

    I'm surprised that it is impossible to add a hyperlink to a word or phrase within a cell. It would be so convenient if the hyperlink weren't related to the entire cell. Thanks.

  13. Create an option to group together sheets in an excel by category

    For example, a single excel for all teachers in a school could include sheets with schedules for each day of the week, responsibilities/guidelines/priorities, student directories by grade, etc. If I could group the sheets for schedules together, or student directories of all grades, that would help organize the space.

  17. Text to Columns - Check box for only one time, so I don't have to manually reset

    If I use Text to Columns, with say space as delimiter. Then unless I go and manually put the delimiters back to only tabs, every paste I do, splits my data on spaces. If that is a feature that people want, (someone who needs it to always split on something other than tabs), then could you just have a checkbox or something for those of us that only want the option one time?

  20. Quick time entry formats

    I use Excel for Mac and use a Magic Keyboard 2. The number pad doesn't have a colon (:) and so I often find myself needing to type in a time and then break away to type a colon with shift-;. Very inefficient."

    When the cell's format is set to time, it would be nice if you could both/either use the period key (.) which is included on the number pad in place of the colon (i.e. typing "10.23" would result in 10:23:00 AM), or be able to type a string of numbers in HHMMSS format (i.e. typing "102300" would…
