  1. New updates

    I see an April 4th update states "The product icons have been redesigned to reflect simple, powerful, and intelligent Office experiences". Sorry, no pass. My idea is that you start to implement all the many ideas and fix the multitude of glitches. Then perhaps we can have a better Office experience.

  3. Bug: comment rollover causes high cpu usage, lag when selecting cells.

    Workaround: disable comment rollover. Either comments off, or fully on helps.

  4. the excel auto save is slow to up date as changes are made. Should improve this process to respond quickly

    excel should be able to import word or power point docs to intergrate together.
    This would allow to produce solid intergrated documents & presentations.
    This option should be available to insert excel sheets/tables into word documents as well.

  5. The min function needs to work in tables that update. Currently they drop one row (result) and repeat the largest result in the new result.

    I need a way to sort the data from the data entry column in a table on a nother column in ascending order. Min does not work. The new row repeats the highest results and the column drops a row. For example, imin($A$1:$A$22, $A$1:A1) in a table on a Mac does not work after adding a few numbers in A, the data entry column

  7. Add Find All to Excel for Mac

    There is currently no 'Find All" function in excel for Mac. This pretty severely limits how easy it is to navigate large workbooks. I used this function quite a bit when I was on a PC and would love to see it added in.

  8. SRS.EXCEL

    SRS. EXCEL.:
    yo no trabajo con formulas en las celdas.
    lo que pasa es que dentro de las celdas uso codigos propios de mi rutina cotidiana en lo que se refiere a control de mis colmenas de abejas.

  11. Provide data get and tranform including JSON to Excel transformation

    This feature is provided with Windows Excel 2016 but not with Mac. Isn't it time to make the Mac software a first-class citizen with Microsoft. It seems like forever that Microsoft started supporting Mac Office, yet it still does not have all the features. Why not? I am paying you every month. Yet you still don't provide many advanced features. I will consider Pages then.

  14. Add customized footer for each page

    I would like to enter a customized footer for each excel sheet that I print. For example page 1 footer is different that page 2 but I still able to keep the feature of all of them having a consistent page number.

  15. Enable Axis Format For New Chart Types in the Excel 2016 for Mac 16.9 Release

    In Excel 2016 for Mac, new chart types were introduced, including Histogram, Tree Map, Sunburst and Box and Whisker. When attempting to format the X & Y Axes, either the Format box appeared with no parameters, or no Format box shows at all. This is critical, core functionality and is needed ASAP, for example a 16.10 update. With my specific case, /i was trying to adjust Bin parameters on a Histogram, and the Format Axis box never appeared.

    Hi All – We are working to add the formatting capabilities for the new chart types. We’re hoping to release the update for this in June 2018.

    We recognize there are currently some limitations with how you can use the chart types that have only recently been available in Excel for Mac, especially Histogram, and we are working hard to complete these.

  16. Excel crashes and cells cannot be edited with High Sierra

    Dear Excel team, this has been posted already and has 74 comments on it, but you closed it. The reason you are not seeing crash reports is because we have to kill the app and this doesn't seem to generate a crash report.

    Issue is as described by 4 pages of comments, please reopen. If not then I have created this as a new issue.

    If you attempt to double click in the cell or click in the function bar, then Excel freezes, by keeping the cursor in the cell and removing keyboard entry. Menu's stop working as well, the…

  17. Add local Mac support for Auto-save

    In earlier versions of Office for Mac (e.g. 2011) the auto-save function saved a copy to wherever on the Mac hard drive you desired - either a native folder, or iCloud or DropBox. Then 2016 and Office 365 came along and slyly required you to license OneDrive in order for this function to work. FOUL PLAY! Make it work on the native hard drive and other (more popular) cloud file-sharing services again.

  19. The new comment threads, recently introduced in windows excel, are not compatible with the latest 2019/office 365 excel program.

    Excel needs to be compatible between platforms. Unfortunately we are now experiencing data loss because of the approach Microsoft used to implement the threaded comments capability.

  20. Import XML into excel

    I need to import a structured xml file into excel. The xml file contains elements which contain other elements. I'd be happy to define a mapping which would excel allow to know, which elements/attributes to put into which column. The File I'd like to import is attached. However, this is jus one example.
