  2. 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…

  3. Možnost stálého zobrazení horní lišty

    Bylo by dobre, kdyby se dalo trvale zobrazit horni listu s moznosti “uložit” a “zavřít”. Casto totiz nejde stáhnout a aplikace se musi natvrdo zavřít. iPhone 7, iOs13

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Profile tab, switch from one account to another as ez as outlook!

    I’ll tell you in 1 word. Most people with multiple email accounts, need the same amount of ez access to save to the particular account. So it’s not just a suggestion, it’s a need & a must!

    Currently if I have a attachment in outlook, or even in the app it self, I have to sign out to be able to save to a different account, otherwise all my attachments are saved to 1 Microsoft account, when it’s really associated with the other email & Microsoft account.

    Multiple email accounts are usually created for different tasks at hand, and the…

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. Disable Autosave option for an application.

    Please provide an option to permanently disable Autosave for an application. Please give the user option to enable if required. This should apply to the full 365 suite.

    The option is provided on individual files but users forget and unintentionally overwrite good files with garbage!

  20. Ability to sort files within folders when trying to open a file

    Not a new idea at all as it exists in most MS products. The ability to sort the columns in the open dialogue so I can either find the file by name or more common the date. At the moment it is very unclear what it is sorted on and so very hard to find the file you want especially if you edited it on another device it doesn’t appear in the recent file list. Also allowing you to size the column width would be good in that same open dialogue. This is all on an iPad. Not sure if…
