  1. Money in Excel - Download all Transactions

    Money in Excel is a great add-in and look forward to updates and additional sheets. Firstly lets allow us to go back and get transactions further. Have options for dates such as ALL transactions or from beginning of certain year.

  4. Customize Touch Bar

    Please add the option to "Customize Touch Bar" for MacBook Pro's. It's usually found under "View" in just about any other application, but unfortunately not within Microsoft Office products.
    While Excel does have a set of standardized Touch Bar buttons, you can't change them to what you might use most often, rendering it fairly useless.
    Apple has had a Touch Bar feature since 2016 so it's not exactly a new feature. I understand that Apple is a competitor, but please put the "Customize Touch Bar" feature into your products!

  6. Have UNIQUE() optionally ignore blanks

    The new UNIQUE(), SORT() and SORTBY() functions are incredibly useful and they save a lot of time. It would be helpful though to allow UNIQUE() to optionally ignore blanks. I use UNIQUE() to build named arrays dynamically which I can use as a validation list for data validation. At the moment I have to create the list (e.g. SORT(UNIQUE(<some column in a table>)) and then created a Name using OFFSET() to ignore the blank at the start of the sorted list.

  7. Add in tabbed browsing for workbooks like the plugin "Office Tab Plugin"

    Add in tabbed browsing for workbooks. The tabs at the bottom for worksheets are great. But I would like something similar for the tons of workbooks I always have open.

    The plugin Office Tab is similar to what I need. https://www.extendoffice.com/product/office-tab.html

  10. Autosave to work with iCloud. (Not everyone has OneDrive!)

    Please can you enable Autosave to work with the Mac's Cloud solution, iCloud. Although I personally use OneDrive, I don't want my excel files saved there. I have them all saved on iCloud or locally on my HD. Users should be able to select which cloud service they wish to use for Autosaving. (including other wider providers).

  11. Recurring Expenses

    Money in Excel Recurring Expenses

    From time to time, I have new recurring expenses that are either completed or new to account for. It would be great to be able to add and remove recurring expenses in that template sheet.

  12. Money for Excel-Allow the same transaction to be split into various catgeories.

    Certain items, especially income, need splitting; in order to accurately separate expenses like withholding for taxes or healthcare premiums.

  15. Insert gif

    I was used to insert some small .gif in Excel for illustrating a concept. Double-clicking on it, it was playing. Impossible with Office 365: it doesn't play any more (see attachment). Any way to restore it ?

  16. Make Microsoft Excel for Mac EXACTLY THE SAME as Microsoft Excel for PC.

    If Mac subscribers of Office 365 are getting less features and PC subscribers, prorate the Mac annual subscription accordingly. If not, MAKE BOTH VERSIONS OF EXCEL HAVE THE SAME MENU FEATURES!

  20. "linked picture"

    One of the most exciting features in Office 365 is Linked pictures and the opportunity to dropdowns with images via named ranges to create interactive content. It is a game changer in terms of being able to hold people's attention.

    This works perfectly on Windows 10, but on the Mac, the Linked pictures (png or PDF) are scaled ~ 4x beyond the cell border and fuzzy. I reported this bug in July through feedback within Excel. I reported this bug 3x in 2019 to no avail. It is still not fixed. Ironically, linked pictures of text content are scaled correctly.…
