  2. Link OneDrive and Excel for file access

    When I go to an Excel file in OneDrive I can view but if I click the Excel icon and I’m not connected to an internet connection the file will not open even though the files are saved to my iPad and Excel is installed on my iPad the file cannot be opened offline? This makes no sense to me?

  5. Opening Excel file from other app should not be read only

    When I open an Excel file into the Excel app from an email, I want to be able to edit it before deciding whether to save it or not. Excel always open files from other apps as read only, so I have to make a local or cloud copy to do anything. This is annoying as it will take up space with Excel files that I may never use again.

    Another example, is that I may want to open an Excel file from an email, make a few edits and email it back without saving it locally.

  6. saving excel files in other formats?????

    Please, i have an iPad "Pro" and i cannot save a file as a .csv. I cannot understand how this is not possible. This is basic functionality for any science/engineering application. Basically it means that without this, mobile Excel is not a solution i can adopt.

  7. Add ability to use custom "User-Made" template in Excel

    Add support for CUSTOM TEMPLATES in mobile version of excel. Another question asking the same thing was posted, but apparently Microsoft can't read as they just added the ability to use templates, but not CUSTOM USER-MADE TEMPLATES! Quit handicapping your mobile apps. It's bad enough form controls and VBA aren't supported still. At least make a useable option that is mobile friendly.

  11. Setting to turn off the auto open last file on excel iPhone app

    It should be a Setting to turn off the auto open last file on excel iPhone app. When I open the app, it often gets stuck on trying to open a file and then trying to cancel opening a file for almost 30 seconds. If I am trying to open another file this means there is a minute delay before I can even start to try to open that file. It should be a setting to turn off the auto open last workbook feature so I can open the app, choose the file I want to open and then use…

  12. Save favorite

    Hello,

    A Features which should be included is favorites. There should be a way to mark a excel file as favorite. When doing that you view a favorite quickly and easily from a section call favorite.

  13. Let me sort the files by date for example when searching for a file

    Often I want to see the last few files that have been updated, let me sort by date. Even better and in addition let me expand the column with file names so I can see the whole file name.

  14. I’d like the ability to create folders on an iPad, not just on OneDrive.

    I’d like the ability to create folders on an iPad, not just on OneDrive. As it stands now, files created or saved on the iPad are put in one giant list. It would be great if I could create a folder called Work and another folder called School to keep files separated for quicker location. Excel works great on my iPad! Having the ability to separate my files in their own folder would make the App even better!

  15. Not to save by default when opening files

    Not to save by default when opening files As it is usual to open and perform no edit but to update the file modification date without sense as no change was made

  16. Integrate with Procore as a “place” to open and save documents

    Procore is a leading construction project management tool. It would greatly increase our teams’ ability to work with Office 365 documents if they could open AND save files back to Procore from their iOS devices.

  18. 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.

  19. 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!

  20. Make file name fields longer

    Use all of the available space to display file names in "Open" view. See attached screenshot. There is twice as much room available as is currently being used for the file name.
