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.
