  1. Enable Excel for Mac to connect to list data in SharePoint Online

    It is currently not possible to connect Excel for Mac to data in a SharePoint list. That makes both Excel and SharePoint less functional in a wide variety of organizations, and makes SPO lists essentially useless in environments where they're updated from time to time.

    Microsoft has developed a robust sync tool that works between Mac and SharePoint Online. Perhaps that could be adapted in a unidirectional way?

    In any event, please consider for development.

  2. Please add real time co-authoring

    It would be amazing to have the opportunity to edit and view a worksheet among multiple users at the same time. Just like you are able to work in the same document in Word.

  3. Multiple O365 accounts and Excel 15 for MacOS

    I have two Office365 accounts (one for work and one for family) but I am punished for being a good Microsoft customer with a non-functioning sign in mechanism. Every time I open a document stored in an O365 Sharepoint I am forced to sign in at least twice before the document opens. Even worse, at no point in the Sign-in process is any indication given which account you should be signing into, it is assumed that you remember which account the document was stored in; this does not sound like a product that is making life easier. I am raising…

  7. Enable @mentions for Office365 guests in Word, Excel, and other applications

    The existing @mention only works for internal users within a tenant. For organizations collaboratively partnering with other organizations on an ongoing basis (e.g. marketing agencies, law firms, etc.), this is a critical component of alerting collaborators and highlighting relevant document changes. Even if just an email address could be tagged, that would be enough to get users in my tenant to quick telling me they want to go back to Google Suite.

  8. You should make it easier to switch between accounts.

    I wish I could be signed in to multiple accounts and just switch between them instead of constantly signing in and out. Google makes this very easy.

  9. update MAC with Windows version

    Why does the MAC version still use threaded comments? Why is this version not compatible with Windows? When ever a feature is Removed from one version, it should be removed from all versions. Otherwise, what is the purpose of having cloud storage to work on the same file from multiple devices? Makes no sense.

  10. Could you add a "Reveal in Finder" option to the File Menu?

    Since you've overloaded the title in the menubar, I can no longer drag the Excel icon into another application like Mail or Slack to share the document with someone. It would be great to either make that work again, or add a "Reveal in Finder" option to the File menu so I can quickly locate the file on disk.

  12. Allow option to "Print Active Sheet" from "Sharing" on Excel on MacBook

    When using the online version of Excel (on an iPad), going to Sharing / Send Attachment / Email / via PDF, it gives the option to "Print Active Sheet" or "Print Entire Workbook".

    Unfortunately, when using the downloaded version of Excel on an iMac or MacBook, the Sharing Options / Send Attachment / via PDF, gives no option to print the "active sheet" and automatically sends the entire workbook.

    Is there any way to send only the "active sheet" directly from Excel on a downloaded version of Excel used on iMac or MacBook?

  17. Make it possible to have dynamic links between excel objects and powerpoint

    Ik kan momenteel niet een dynamische link opzetten onder MacOs tussen powerpoint en excel, daardoor moet ik wachten tot mijn data verzameld zijn alvorens grafieken naar powerpoint te kopiëren. Omdat ik dit regelmatig moet doen is het een heel gedoe om een presentatie in elkaar te zetten

  20. Arrows and annotations

    Excel only allpows us to add straight arrows - it would be so useful if we could easily add bendy arrows so as to be able to annotate worksheets by bending arows or other pointers around numbers instead of going over them. I see that Preview on my Mac allows me to do this on pdf documents and its brilliant. I suepect it will be a tiny change for Microsoft but would be a major help. The workarounds are just too fiddly and difficult to work with. I attach an example of what I mean
