  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Show better information in File listing on open

    I have stored wbks in iCloud as .xlsm and then found that Macros don’t work. So I stored them again as.xlsx. However, when I come to clear out unusable stuff it is impossible to identify which is which. File suffix, creation date should all be shown.
    Also when I want to save iCoud files on my iPad (so that I can always go back to my original when the local version gets messed up) it is not evident where to find my local storage - of course it is in there but under PUBLIC! That is not obvious and the…

  8. Fix bug: Any file opened from DropBox or iCloud Drive (and perhaps elsewhere) vanishes from Recent files shortly after you close it.

    Fix the bug described in the title. It appears to happen whenever the app is terminated in the background. So if you don't leave Excel or you return to it relatively quickly, the files appear in Recent. Wait to long and they vanish and you have to go find them again. Very inconvenient.

  9. Workbooks are being un-pinned from the top of the “Recent” list

    I have several Excel workbooks that I use regularly and so I have them pinned to the top of the “Recent” list.

    Recently, probably since the update to version 2.19, these workbooks are being un-pinned from the list although I have not un-pinned them.

    There seem to be two actions that cause this to happen.

    1. Open one of the pinned workbooks then close it again, with or without saving changes.
    2. Pin a different workbook to the top of the list.

    This happens on both my iPad and my iPhone.

    The same problem occurs with documents in Word -…

  10. It should be possible to pin spreadsheets to the home screen

    T should be possible to in frequently accessed spreadsheets to the home screen so they can be opened with one tap. This would be similar to. How you can add frequently used web pages from safari.

  12. XLT Files Don't Appear in Cloud Browsers

    XLT and files with related extensions (like XLTX) don't appear in the cloud service browsers like Egnyte and Box, which is very frustrating. Is there an official way of getting to and opening these files?

  13. The new Box integration is prone to lose data in an online/offline scenario.

    Previously, I used the Box sync tool and chose which folders I wanted to have sync'ed locally. That worked great! As it is now, the MS Office app gets confused and is prone to lose locally made changes that were made offline.
