  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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. Ensure Excel and Word can open embedded word documents

    Many businesses are moving to iPads instead of laptops. Most meeting agendas that are sent out tend to have embedded documents linking to the agenda points. Currently it is impossible to open embedded documents on word for iPad, which renders iPads useless in these meetings. Please ensure that this is available in the next version of Word for iPad

  6. PLease allow us to open and save to a removable USB drive (flash or otherwise). I thought with the lastest update that would happen.

    Allow users with iPads to open and save from a removable USB drives. I always don’t have a good internet connection when traveling. I would really like the ability to open and save from a removable USB drive.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  16. Please add ownCloud support. It seems just about every cloud service is supported except the one we and our clients rely on.

    ownCloud support is desperately needed. Should have been there from day one. We avoid using Office apps because doing so blows up our workflows.

  17. To be able to clear Al workbooks previously open or edited

    It would be amazing if we could clear all recents from excel. There so much data there that is utterly useless after I have seen/edited the file.

    Beeing able to select all, or one by one would be a plus!

  19. Zoom Level on Open Workbook on iOS

    With a Workbook on OneDrive and edited on both macOS and iOS (iPad & iPhone), opening the Workbook on iPad sets a ludicrous zoom level - far too big.

    If you open a Workbook occasionally and work on it a lot then adjusting the zoom each time it's opened is not a big deal. But if you open a workbook every day or more often and just add a few values each time then every time adjusting the zoom level becomes a real nuisance (to the point where I've given up on Excel and moved to Apple apps - which…

  20. 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
