  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. Password Protection for Excel on iPad

    Would be nice to encrypt sensitive documents/excel sheets in the mobile app. Would save time then waiting to get to a desktop.

  11. Enable Security to open a file like in the full version of excel

    I want to secure my document in excel or word too but as it stands I can’t do that using a less efficients app via office 365. I need to turn on my laptop and do it in the full version of excel on that

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  18. 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…

  20. xltx to xlsx conversion on an ipad pro

    A template.xltx excel file stored on Onedrive, when edited and "save a copy" is selected, the file saves as an .xlsx file, but cannot be opened by either the ipad or alternative PC once the file is closed. The file appears to be corrupted.
    Can this be fixed?
