  1. Bug fix??

    I have an IPAD Model MC769C/A and an external keyboard (Logitech Ultra thin Keyboard Cover).

    When I use the ENTER key now (Changed sometime between April and September) it will randomly skip extra cells before stopping for the next entry. (Now the cursor is over the wrong cell for the next data entry). A 2nd Keyboard had the same issues. The on board keyboard does function properly.

    I have noticed an unusual delay after the ENTER keystroke before it move the cursor. (sometimes only one cell but often more than one).

    In addition to the above issue if you have…

    • Pro

      Request that a pro version of excel be released for the iPad Pro lineup

      Especially the new v2 pros as they are as strong as some MacBook pros.
      Main features would be data connection / power pivot and pivot tables

      The fact that iPad version doesn't have pivot tables is a huge disappointment

        • Preview scaling

          I use MS Excel on my iPhone (in addition to my normal desktop/laptop usage). It is very annoying that there is apparently no way to scale the preview, which in my particular case is teeny weeny!

          • Ability to create array formulas

            Since Excel For iPad can evaluate properly array formulas, the abilility to create new ones must be added:
            - with a dedicated (crt sht enter) button
            - while pressing crt sht enter on physical keyboards

            • All Features for iPad

              Office for the ipad should be able to easily do everything that the office for Windows can, and Microsoft should negotiate with Apple so that the VBA features are also possible. iPads have enough Power for all this.

              • Full version for iPad (Pro at LEAST)

                I got an iPad pro to use for school and it's very frustrating to have limited graphing capabilities. I bought Office 365 and would want full access everywhere.

                    • Touch ID support for opening files

                      Request support for Touch ID in Excel iOS.

                      Touch ID works in OneDrive however when I want to open a file in Excel I need to login in with my password.

                      Touch ID support would be a very nice feature.

                      • Quick scrolling on Excel and Word

                        I use very large files on Excel because I am importing data from government sources.
                        On Windows/Mac, there are scroll bars for navigation.
                        The data can have hundreds of thousands of rows. is there some method to quickly navigate these files on IOS, like a way to turn on scroll bars/ hidden gestures,etc? using swiping is of course, ludicrous on large files like these! Excel for IOS importa the dataeffortlessly, but I cant move around quickly (I cannot swipethrough a 50,000 record file!)

                          • Enabling copying sheets from one one workbook to another with proper functionality

                            At the moment when you copy paste a sheet from workbook to another all the formuale are lost.

                            This is a big weekness compared to working within a windows environment. It effectively means that workbooks cannot be combined.

                            For example, if I have a standardised financial analysis worksheet that I want to add to a work book containing a financial model I would have to re-create the formulae each time.

                            • Format keyboard appropriately

                              On mobile devices the keyboard presented should be that pertaining to the format of the field being completed. That is if you are entering data in a field formatted as numeric you should be presented with a numeric keyboard and not the last keyboard used as happens at present. This is done by other apps like google sheets so I cannot see why it can't be done in excel

                                    • Increase functionality in iPad app

                                      Many of us don't use a laptop, but only use iPad for our excel and other office 365 products. I want to be able to customize my ribbons, change my theme colors, develop macros. I want to do all the things that I used to be able to do when my macbook was working! I am paying just the same as everyone else and it's very frustrating to want to do something that I used to be able to do, and my hands are tied!!! Furthermore, I don't even know what I am not able to do on iPad excel…
