  3. Add Apple Card to Money in Excel

    I cannot seem to add the Apple Card to Money in Excel (probably Apple's fault), but they have recently made it possible to access my account without being forced to use my phone, so maybe its possible now.

  5. Disable F1 key

    When using a new MacBook pro (with the virtual F-Keys) it would be terrific if there was an option to eliminate or disable the F1 key. F1 results in a Help popup, which interrupts the user’s work on Excel. In many financial roles, analysts, et al, would physically remove the F1 key from their keyboard as F2 is a very common key for auditing formulas in cells.

  7. make accounting number format, region friendly

    currently I'm using the app in Guatemala, the currency and accounting number format is Guatemalan GTQ; but the mostly used is just Q. I wanted to modify the ribbon content but was told it cannot be changed. It would be a great thing to be able to use the "Q. ", for now, I will be using cell style.

  8. reopen excel files on restart

    Bring back the ability to reopen excel files on restart with Mac. The community has asked for this since v. 2011 and you ignore it. It has to be one of the top requests since it was removed. Very frustrating to see a great feature removed...

  9. Support for moving open files

    If you open (for example) a TextEdit document, start working, save it, then move the file into a different folder whilst still open: TextEdit recognises that the currently open file has moved.

    However, Excel/Word etc. do not. Please add support for moving open files!

  11. Open shared link in Excel for mac

    If a colleague provides a link to me, I'm unable to open it in the desktop version of the app. Even if the functionality existed via the existing open dialog, it will make my work (which currently involves searching for file in shared files which for some reason does not appear to show the file being shared even if the sharer has no permission)

  13. 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!

  14. Add PowerPivot for Macs.

    I've seen this has been a complaint going back for years and it never seems to be addressed. I am quite confident that Microsoft has the resources to provide the same functions across Mac and Windows.

  15. For Macbook Pros with the context sensitive Touch Bar, add buttons showing last items copied to clipboard to paste with tap for formula edit

    For Macbook Pros with the context sensitive Touch Bars, add buttons on the Touch Bar when editing cell values showing the first line of the most recently added clipboard items.

  17. Multiple set-column printing

    I don't know if this is already possible..RE: printing..
    I would like to be able to print multiple "sets" of columns on each page... 1) this would decrease paper usage 2) the viewer of the report could see 2x (or more) of the data without flipping the page.
    EX: I have a list of 250 rows that are four small columns. I would like to have the first, say, 50 rows appear with the 4 columns of 1-25 rows on left side and some space and then the 26-50 four-column rows next to the first set of rows...or if the…

  18. Add Buttons to Quick Access Toolbar (Excel 2016, Mac)

    For Excel 2016 (Mac), it is not possible to add "Open File" to the Quick Access Toolbar.

    New File is there.
    Close File is there.
    Why is Open file not there? It's there in Word.

  20. Excel on windows you RC chart and it shows which type. I am a teacher and wish to do same thing on Mac I have 16.16.26 version

    Make it easy for teachers to check type of graph a student has used. It is very easy on Windows. Mac should be just as easy.
