How can we improve Excel for Mac?

Add a dot plot as native graph option. This is a simple graph that shows position of datapoint on a single axis for data visualization.

Dot plots are simple graphs that show distribution of values along a single axis. This can be faked using a scatterplot, but the y-axis is unused (and people always ask what that axis is...) Programs like Minitab allow for this graph to help visualize the data without any statistical assumptions.

        You can always remove the y-axis and its labels from a scatterplot,
