  2. Checkbox Passwords and Tracking

    Allow a "Checkbox" to require a password to checkmark the box. Allow for multiple passwords to be created, so it can be tracked which employee's password was used to checkmark the box.

  3. Options to disable all and parts of auto formatting

    When importing data either from other applications or copy and pasting from other sources excel's auto-formatting corrupts data sets. It would be useful to have an option to turn off auto-formatting in part and in whole. This has been one of the biggest drawbacks of the programme for years now.

  4. Add Buttons to Quick Access Toolbar (Excel 2016, Mac)

    For Excel 2016 (Mac), it is not possible to add "Open File" to the Quick Access Toolbar.

    New File is there.
    Close File is there.
    Why is Open file not there? It's there in Word.

  8. Calculation bug in Excel for Mac 16.38 (20061401)

    Floating point computation bug in subtraction. Two numbers that have two significant digits after the decimal each round perfectly. The difference does not round to two digits. (Screen shot attached in case the calculations work on other devices.)

  10. Try not to suck so much *** when you make programs.

    My idea (I know this is radical) but have you guys ever tried maybe not sucking so much at what you do? Everything Microsoft for Mac sucks *. I can put my laptop on the floor, ** all over it, and that would be 100 times better than anything you all come up with. Maybe try that

  16. More template varieties

    I love being able to use templates when using Microsoft applications, however, I have found that with Excel, most of them don't apply to what I am doing. I struggle having to start from scratch and have rarely found a template that worked for me. I hope to find more templates that I can use after submitting this.

  17. Option or Command + arrow key doesn't work as elsewhere in macOS

    I might be wrong (please tell me if so!) but here's what happens:


    1. I double-click a cell to start editing.

    2. I type text but notice a typo in one of the words I've typed.

    3. I hit Option+left arrow key to jump the cursor back. Elsewhere in macOS this always moves the cursor back one word.

    4. In Excel (Office 365 subscription), it causes Excel to switch worksheet. Ditto Option+right arrow key.

    Weirdly, this behaviour is not consistent. Sometimes Option+left/right cursor key works as it should. Othertimes it switches worksheets.

  19. Include custom filter for pivot table

    When filtering the pivot tables or excel tables, we the Mac users aren't allowed to use custom filter and that can be frustrating when we need to filter out names from A to N, but as the row is categorised as "Texts", we do not get to use filters like "Greater than or equals to" which is only for "Numbers" category. Need this to be included soon.
