    • Collaborative working

      Here is an idea make Excel work like it is supposed to. Collaborative working in excel completely doesn't work, it won't let 2 users save in the same document without loosing one user's work.

        • Office Apps for Android don't work.

          Office Apps for Android (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote) don't work and keeps on stopping when I just start them. I have factory resetted the phone but to no avail. What's wrong?

          Phone : Redmi 2
          Android version : 7.1.2

            • Scroll Bars

              The following suggestions are based on my use of Version 16.0.9001.2077:

              1. Provide a user-configurable option to show a handle when scrolling, or perhaps an option to specify scroll bars width.(It often takes 3 or more attempts to grab the extremely small scroll bars on my Samsung Note 8, I’m using a FHD+ (2220x1080) screen resolution.)

              2. Scroll range should be limited to the worksheet data range.(For example, being able to scroll to row 3,000 on a worksheet that only has a 100 rows of data has little to no value and makes small scroll bar movements overly sensitive.)

                Dear Microsoft, Please, no more with the default autosave in Office 365 Excel and Word! Please have default set to OFF and an option to select it to autosave on. Please please! This is a daily hassle which we can do without. Please
                It seems to me to be a fix of something which worked perfectly well before and didn't need fixing. I can see that it may be useful in some circumstances, but to be on by default is an unnecessary interference with the way many people are working.
                If there was a setting in the options menu, that…

                • Android App

                  I cannot unprotect a file on my android phone to edit it's contents is extremely frustrating given I do not always have my laptop with to do so. Allowing an android user to unprotect sheets on the go to edit would be one of the greatest things you could update.

                  Thank You

                    • 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.

                          • Add search option in ‘Open’ file section.

                            The search function in ‘Recents’ is great but searching for older files can be very difficult as often one cannot remember the exact file name. The file names in ‘Open’ are also often truncated and scrolling through hundreds of files starting with similar names a time consuming and occasionally impossible nightmare. Being able to search with one, or a few key words, would be huge improvement.

                              Excel is causing serious issues on my new Samsung Note 8. Every time I try to do anything, whether it's giving feedback, adding color fill or entering data, the app crashes and either turns off my Bluetooth or restarts my phone. I don't have this issue with any other app or feature on my phone. OneDrive won't let me save my important spreadsheet to Google Drive, and keeps saying I need to sign in, even though I'm already signed in. OneDrive won't let me link my Google account. Since Excel keeps crashing, OneDrive only lets me save a .txt file…

                                  • Handling of decimal comma

                                    When using a national version of Excel in places where the decimal delimiter is a comma, Excel is aware of it. On the PC version however, Excel is smart enough to recognize a "." in the middle of digits and take it as a decimal comma. On the Android version, it turns the data into text and keeps the ".", which is a pretty lame. This is important because the comma is only offered on the "special characters" keyboard requiring additional keyboard strokes to enter it, whereas the "." is always there.

                                      • 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.
