  1. Restore data form functionality (different from VBA UserForms)

    I miss the data form feature available in previous versions of Excel and would like to see it restored in Excel for Mac. Note that the Data Form feature is not the same as VBA UserForms. There's a separate suggestion if you want to vote for VBA UserForms.

    You can continue to comment on this suggestion, but we are marking it Not at this Time, to let you know the status of the request.

    We recommend using Tables to make data entry easy. To create a table, just press CMD+T. With a table, you can press TAB to move across the fields and then it will automatically go to the beginning of the next line if you’re at the last field. If you’re on the last record in the table, it will add a new record to the end of the list.

    Please comment to let us know what other reasons you’re using the Data Form that make it easier/better than using a Table.

  4. Fix Comments in Excel

    The comment box in Excel is broken, it often results in Excel crashing.

    1) It's laggy
    2) It opens with the words "Microsoft Office". THIS IS SO BIZZARE WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT! Why not just leave the comment empty? There's no point in advertizing Microsoft Office IN the comment, when the comment feature is not as beautiful yet as the rest of the suit, and causes an otherwise wonderful program to CRASH rather often.

    A new comment should be empty, or PERHAPS have a greyed out phrase "enter comment here...", which dissapears the moment you click on the new…
