How can we improve Excel for Mac?

ALT key ribbon access

The ability to utilize the ALT keys to access any button or command on the ribbon greatly improves productivity on the PC versions of excel. Implementing this feature on the Mac version of excel would be greatly appreciated.

    I switch back and forth between Mac and PC, and the PC version of Excel implements this a lot better. We also need the ability to add any command to the ribbon bar.

    This would be a tremendous help for me on my macbook pro. I would like to use my mac just as much as my HP work computer for excel tasks.

    Would enhance the transformation from Windows to Mac a bit more easier.

    Fantastic Idea. This would greatly improve efficiency (as we've seen on the PC versions)

    This would be so extremely valuable. As a recent Windows --> Mac user, I'm very disappointed all my Alt menu muscle memory is now useless in Excel for Mac

    Agreed ... it was the only good thing about the ribbons...

    If this is implemented, please make it optional. The Option/Alt key serves other functions in OS X that would be compromised by this feature.
