  1. Allow users to disable virus warnings for internal files on at least workbook level, especially for pdf files.

    Hyperlinked .pdf files from my own One Drive folder always comes up with virus warning when opening from Excel for Mac. At least windows can go to trust and fix, but can't in Mac. Would prefer to be a setting for each work book at the minimum.

  2. 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.

  4. Add the bounds feature for graphs in the same area as found on a PC.

    I'm trying to edit the x-axis of a graph but the bounds feature is not found in the same area as on a PC.

  5. 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?

  6. How about fixing Excel 2016 for Mac so that it doesn't crash on "Save As"?

    For several months Excel 2016 for Mac has been crashing every time I attempt "Save As". I'm running version 16.16.26 (200914) and MacOS 10.15.6 Catalina.

    This is such a basic piece of functionality that I'm flabbergasted that Microsoft has not fixed it. I'm using Excel without any add-ons or such. It's just plain broken.

  9. 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…

  11. Option to add a Title to a Chart Legend

    To improve comprehension of chart data, it is sometimes very helpful to explain what each data series represents. E.g. if the series names say "orange", "apples", and "bananas" the legend could say Fruit [lbs].
    While this information could be added in the chart title, it can make that title too long.

  14. In the excel filter menu show a light colored bar to show how many of that value there are in the column.

    An underlay behind the fliter menu to show the count of each value in the filter menu for that column.
    This will give users a good indication of the impact of that value. In a second phase, hovering over the value could give a tool tip with the count or make the count show up on the right hand side of the filter menu.

  17. Make Money in Excel work for multiple Editor accounts

    HI, my wife and I are still using the legacy version of Microsoft Money. We were excited to see the new template for Money in Excel. But it quickly became a non-starter when only one Microsoft Account can be an editor. Support for Editing / managing, the file for multiple Microsoft accounts is key to make this usable.
