    • Add the option to copy cells as an image.

      Before the update today (April 11, 2017), when I copied a group of cells, it would automatically paste them into messenger on my iPad as an image. Today's update now paste that same group of cells as an unformatted conglomeration of ****. It is really terrible. By doing away with the copy as image function, I've now added an hour and a half to my workday. Everyday...

      • iPad Pro 9.7 Smart Keyboard problem

        Has anyone else had a problem with the iPad Pro 9.7, Excel and the Smart Keyboard? Every time you type into a cell, the software keyboard pops up momentarily before promptly disappearing - like Excel makes the cell editable, displays the iPad keyboard, then realises the Smart Keyboard is attached, and then removes the iPad keyboard.
        To reproduce:
        - Type something into any cell
        - Press return that then moves the focus onto the cell below
        - Start typing something, and the software keyboard will pop up, before disappearing again

        This bug can be reproduced on the iPads at the…

        • V2.0 autocomplete really breaks barcode scanning-- need option to turn off.

          V2.0 autocomplete is 'faster' -- so it causes a HUGE issue for barcode scanning. This shouldn't have been a surprise to development since it started to an issue posted here in 2016... but now V2.0 makes it faster and more of an issue.... PLEASE give us the option to turn it off in iOS or option to install old version until fixed. This totally broke our workflow and there is no way to fix it ourselves. We have the option to disable autocomplete on the desktop version, but those properties don't stay with the file, so opening on OneDrive via…

          • Excel iOS: auto-saves files despite having switched off auto-save

            Please see https://answers.microsoft.com/thread/7768863c-337c-49a3-b207-1a9635510bad for a serious bug first reported by the OP over 4 months ago.

            If auto-save is switched off (which I think it should be by default, but that's another matter) and I discard changes when exiting a file, the file timestamp still changes. This then spreads to other devices seeing the file on OneDrive. So if I just want to check something in a file from several years ago it suddenly looks like I've recently edited the file! This bug of course is not present in Windows.

              • Excel should not create "Email attachments" onedrive folder

                Why have Office for iOS apps just started creating the "Email attachments" folder in onedrive? I do not use this folder and because on Windows I have my onedrive mapped as "My Documents" and have it appearing on the Windows bar I now cannot see all the folders I want to access on the Windows bar.

                If I delete the folder in Windows or in the onedrive app on iOS, it reappears as soon as I open an office app on iOS. I am using a 4th gen iPad with up to date iOS and apps.

                • Make the share workbook function work on Iphone

                  With Excel,
                  I'm on turning on, the track workbook function, on my Pc (window 10, with office 365 business)
                  Everything is fine on every computer.
                  But, once we try to open it on our cellphone with the excel app, it doesn't work and don't let us opening it.
                  It saying: The content can't be take in charge
                  This document include content that can't be take in charge.
                  To modify a copy with out this content, press save a copy

                  Anyone can explain to me why this function isn't available on the excel app?

                  • Add feature to auto log out for users.

                    In our manufacturing plant, we use MS products to display much of our training materials. Currently we are having each user log into their own 365 account so they can access individualized training sent to them via their onedrive accounts. The problem is that when you log out, the user must go into settings and reapply the option to reset user credentials every single time. The setting does not stay set. Every time it performs the function it inverts back to being off. The next user then can not log in. Also I would really like if the software would…
