  1. No option to ‘strikethrough’ text or cells

    Like the heading suggests, the option to ‘strikethrough’ text or cells is missing on excel for iPhone and iPad.

  3. Must include desktop functions for utilizing powerful android mobiles

    The owner android version of excel is useful only for basic excel needs. Whereas to utilize the highly powerful android phones of today it must include functions - pivot table/charts, goal seek, lookups from separate workbooks, macros, text to columns, remove duplicates, conditional formatting, various file saving formats, all paste options etc.

  4. Add Page Layout

    Please add Page Layout w/the accompanying sub-menus: insert headers/footers, fit to one page, etc. I no longer use a PC/laptop, I only use my iPad Pro w/my Office apps. It’s annoying not having the features I’m accustomed to using on Excel. If I could have chosen Printing & Formatting I would have.

  5. Enable Excel for Mobile Devices password protected sheet to unlock

    Enable Excel for Mobile Devices password protected sheet to unlock. Then you can also open, edit and save the Excel file on iOS devices (and Android).

  6. Sheet protection

    Please add the ability to protect and unprotect work sheets in excel iOS.

    I regularly use excel on Mac and lock my cells for security and to avoid accidental input. But then I can’t unprotect the sheet from my iOS devices to edit it on the go. Frustrating and disappointing as I have seen this suggestion frequently pop up.

  8. PivotTables for IPad

    Please make the PivotTables a part of the excel offering for the IPad. Tablets are fast replacing laptops in the world, and what is the point of excel without pivot tables. Please, try as quick as possible to make it available on the IPads, a lot of people will be relieved and delighted. Thanks.

  12. Add Custom Templates

    Please add the ability to save a workbook or an existing template that you’ve customized as a new custom template. This would be very helpful as it is very time consuming to need to edit the saved template every time you want a new workbook. Eg. if you’re making an invoice-to have your name etc. be already there(on your custom template) instead of entering it every single time you make an invoice.
    Thx.

  14. Unlock full version of Excel on iPadOS

    After the arrival of the new iPadOS, the iPad pro is becoming my new "computer", but I really need the office apps, like excel or word, with the full features like on Mac or PC, like macros. Please, consider updating office 365 on iPadOS to the full desktop version. Thanks

  16. Allow subscription free use for tablets greater than 10.1 screen size

    If your screen size on a mobile device is greater than 10.1 inches you need a subscription to edit spreadsheets on onedrive excel.
    I have just upgraded my iPad from 4th gen to iPad Air, and apples new basic iPad screen is 10.2 inches.
    Therefore, may people will suddenly find they can’t edit their basic spreadsheets that they have been using no problems for years.
    Please remove the screen size limit, having it doesn’t make me want to get a subscription (a nonsense for just one spreadsheet), it makes me want to find another provider.
    Please fix this!

  17. Lock cells to protect formula

    Being able to lock cells in Excel for iPhone / iPad would be greatly appreciated. To protect formulas from being accidentally edited or deleted.

  18. Page set up

    Maybe you can add page layout lines for excel
    So the mobile users can determine the exact tables they can make for letter size or legal size or A4 size without going on print set up just to view the size they made

  19. Add built in vba parser and interpreter so macros run properly. (Just a bit more time consuming than an ASM interpreter.)

    I think excel mobile could (and should) run macros. I could build a VBA interpreter for you...I've done a full ASM interpreter in several languages on codingame.com, it should be pretty easy to make one for VBA just way more time consuming. I have certificates for about 30 programming languages and have experience in about 20 of those.
