  1. 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.

  4. 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

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  10. Open and save files on personal NAS

    Would be great if we could add our own personal NAS to 'Places' so we are not tied to using third party cloud storage providers.

  12. 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.

  13. 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!

  14. 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.

  15. Still cannot open spreadsheets with multiple hidden columns (Excel for IOS 2.1)

    This is the third link I receive in response to where I should post the problem.
    Follows the problem as well as the link with the posts
    Microsoft has made several updates available to try to fix the problem, but spreadsheets with multiple hidden columns remain unopened due to a bug. Currently the version of Excel for IOS is 2.1, but the problem continues to occur. Please Microsoft help us and correct this problem. We are waiting.

    Version 1.31 works without problems, all subsequent updates present the problem after updating the app.
    I tested files with several hidden columns. If…

  16. Shared login with Outlook

    With the iOS office suite I am required to login to each app separately, which can be quite frustrating when my password changes and I re-login to each app separately.

    Apps made by other vendors (such as Google) allow shared account login accross all of it's apps where I only need to login once and all the apps just work.

  17. 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.

  18. Include among the storage services iCloud

    Due to the fact that we are using Excel per iPad we should be able to access files stored on iCloud which is the default service for Apple’s users

  19. Include among the file positions also “iCloud” because we are using the IOS version of Excel

    Due to the fact that we subscribe to the IOS version of Excel it should be normal to open file saved on iCloud while the Apple service is not included and cannot be added.

  20. Storage usage limits for mobile app file cache/downloads

    An optional limit to the amount of storage used by the mobile apps to download recently used files. Otherwise a limit to the number of files cached in this manner based on how recently they were used or a limit on how long it keeps them on the mobile device.

    This would allow users to save space on the mobile device. Keeping only documents they expect to use easily accessible.
    Along with a keep on device setting for important files to provide users control over this functionality.
