  2. Need a tab for “Clear recent files list”

    Removing items from the recent files one by one is time consuming and inefficient. A select multiple or clear all option would be convenient.

  5. Enable saving a file with password protection in android from mobile device

    Currently when I save a new excel sheet, there is no way to save it with password protection. also we need ability to open a regular file without password and add password protection to it from mobile android platform.

    Android is a bigger market than iOS, so please prioritize this more than iOS features.

  6. Access to templates on iOS devices

    Enable the Office templates to be accessible from iOS devices, as like they are from a PC. I use Office on my laptop, and have Word, Excel, and Note installed on my iPad. It would be nice to be able to work backwards and forwards between platforms from start to finish. At the moment, I am unable to access the templates I can get on my laptop, on my iPad.

  9. Pinned files sortable, and separated from recent files

    Pinned files on the home page should be sortable, and stay in order. They are better separated from the other ‘recent’ files, as in the previous version

  11. List files on iPad in date vs title order

    When looking for a file in MS Excel or Office 365 on my iPad, all are listed but title and nit by last used or most recent. No ability to show all by creation or last used date.

  12. Why are you opening one drive from excel with no security?

    Why are you opening one drive from excel with no security at all?
    If I want an excel on one drive I need to pass security and yet the excel app just accessed without - quite shocking!

  13. Convert to json

    I’d like to be able to export a spreadsheet to json and perhaps import json to spreadsheet. This would be great for both data portability, and a developer I often need data to be in json format. There are 3rd party converters but a single click option would be so much more convenient. Thanks!

  15. STOP Switching

    Quit switching back and forth between the sort order in the “Recent” file open. You go back and forth between newest first to alphabetical order. I just get use to one, and you switch to the other. Then back and forth. Better still, allow me to choose how I want my files listed.

  16. For iPad, need an option to save file locally (i.e. to an external drive) not just to OneDrive or iPad itself

    It would be ideal to have a “File” option for the iPad just like I have on a PC or Mac computer.

    I have the latest iPad Pro and I am seriously disappointed with how poorly Excel works in it.

  18. Poder poner una contraseñas a algunos ficheros

    Para ficheros con datos sensibles, sería aconsejable tener una contraseña para poderlos abrir, sobre todo si éstos se guardan en la nube.
