  7. Remembering Zoom Level

    It would be helpful if the Zoom Level was remembered between editing sessions. As it now stands in Version 16.0.9001.2077 I need to adjust the Zoom Level every time I open some of my workbooks.

  8. What-if-analysis

    Think there is a need for an update so that what-if-analysis gets available. Especially goal-seek is a much needed thing for many students who uses a lot of Excel, to fully convert into Ipad excel versions.

  9. Allow Excel for iPhone To Edit iCloud Files

    Excel for iPhone can no longer edit iCloud files without an Office 365 subscription (see my forums post here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeexcel-msoimobile-mso_mobapps/excel-for-iphone-now-needs-o365-subscription-for/4985fd5d-1661-4563-a408-801ede8abc33)

    According to this page (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/When-do-I-need-an-Office-365-subscription-b6518311-893a-4a89-bfcd-bdc56bf52085), it should be able to do everything except insert and edit SmartArt for iPhones assuming you are not using Business cloud storage. This is not the case, it prevents editing when I am using the iCloud family storage level when both Word and PowerPoint can edit files from iCloud family storage.

  11. iPad: Support for Swiftpoint GT mouse

    Would like to see support for this mouse. I use the GT for RDP but it would be amazing to be able to use this directly with excel.

  12. Sheets Data Refresh

    Bardzo proszę, dodajcie możliwość odświeżania danych z plików zewnętrznych. Brakuje tej opcji najbardziej, zwłaszcza gdy pracuje się w zespole.

  13. Add-in abilitly to embbed an immediately executing sound file that is value dependent.

    I use Excel Android on my Samsung E tablet as a scoreboard., with player stats.

    In order to make the scorekeeping more appealing and interesting, I would like to have the ability to embed a short mp3 file that can play immediately, upon reaching a value.

    It should be able to play automatically, without having to search for and open the sound file player. Thank you very much.

  16. Custom Cell Formatting

    There needs to be a way to create a custom format for cells on Android. The fact that there's no way to do this on the web app (and thus, Chromebook) either means there are significant limitations placed upon mobile users.

  17. Csv

    Simply build in support for opening CVS files. A number of websites that I use to pull down reports and data only export delimited files. I can only open them in Apple Numbers to mixed results. This should absolutely be functionality that the IOS app should take ownership of.

  19. Return Sheet Name =CELL("filename")

    It is essential that I can use
    =CELL("filename")
    in Android excel.
    I use =MID(CELL("filename",A1),FIND("]",CELL("filename",A1))+1,255)
    to return the current sheet name in desktop excel. But in android it just gives #VALUE! which makes my workbook unusable as all the links break.

  20. Excel cursor after entering data with the “return” key

    In Excel on an iPad, after entering data (either a label or numeric) in a cell and touching the “return” key, the cursor goes down one cell. An answer to my post on the Microsoft Community site yielded an answer that a setting is not currently available to turn off this feature of dropping down one cell. In the computer version of Excel, such action is an option, so one can also have the program leave the cursor in the same cell after entering data with the “return” key. So my suggestion is that the settings should include the 2…
