  5. Allow Excel for iPhone To Edit iCloud Files

    Excel for iPhone can no longer edit iCloud files without an Office 365 subscription (see my forums post here: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/msofficeexcel-msoimobile-mso_mobapps/excel-for-iphone-now-needs-o365-subscription-for/4985fd5d-1661-4563-a408-801ede8abc33)

    According to this page (https://support.office.com/en-us/article/When-do-I-need-an-Office-365-subscription-b6518311-893a-4a89-bfcd-bdc56bf52085), it should be able to do everything except insert and edit SmartArt for iPhones assuming you are not using Business cloud storage. This is not the case, it prevents editing when I am using the iCloud family storage level when both Word and PowerPoint can edit files from iCloud family storage.

  6. Allow elements to be placed between grid lines

    Sometimes it is useful to be able to place an element (character, bullet point, etc) “between” the grid lines. As a proof of concept, I've attached a mockup with the letter ‘ы’ inserted between two horizontally adjacent cells.

    I expect this addition to the Excel worksheet model to be fundamental enough that it will doubtlessly be useful for many novel applications, even though at the moment I can't think of any.

    Thanks!

  8. Enabling copying sheets from one one workbook to another with proper functionality

    At the moment when you copy paste a sheet from workbook to another all the formuale are lost.

    This is a big weekness compared to working within a windows environment. It effectively means that workbooks cannot be combined.

    For example, if I have a standardised financial analysis worksheet that I want to add to a work book containing a financial model I would have to re-create the formulae each time.

  9. Copy paste. Function on ipad

    When I copy cells from one spreadsheet on iPad and paste those cells to another spreadsheet on the same iPad the pasted information is not copies correctly. The first screenshot attached I have copied cells H8 through H18. The second screenshot shows that information pasted to column DJ 6.. as you see the paste function has collapsed the cells with information and eliminated the cells that contained no information from the copied spreadsheet. HELP PLEASE. THANKS

  11. Keyboard Shortcut to Edit Active Cell (like F2)

    Excel for iPad needs a hardware keyboard shortcut to "Edit the active cell and put the insertion point at the end of its contents." This is the F2 function in Excel for PC. This shortcut is very important for people who rely on the arrow keys to navigate spreadsheets.

  12. increase width of dropdown lists

    As is use data validation to create drowdown lists i am in need of a higher width of those lists using excel iOs App.

    The entries are very long so that i can only see the beginning. The decision which entry should be taken must be made at the end.

    I would like to increase the width of a dropdown list manually. Please improve this asap.

    Many thanks in Advance.

  13. Permit use of Draw for marking up and adding numbers, text,etc when using "Freeze Pane" for Headers. Was functional before latest update.

    Allow use of "Draw" functions at the same time using "Freeze Pane" functions. This was possible before the 4/13/2017 update.

  14. Touch Keyboard bug on IPad Pro 10.5 with excel

    The new iPad Pro uses a slightly larger keyboard and I’ve noticed that there is a bug when you swap from ABC to 123 on the keyboard (the abc...123 google button on the bottom right)

    If you tap on it, it will change your keyboard to a more numeric centric one.

    However, the ABC...123 button from that point is now hidden by the keyboard itself; this is because the program appears to code to have that frame follow the keyboard if the user moves the touch keyboard.

    Since the IPad Pro has a larger keyboard than most IOS devices, the…

  15. Slider or Scroll Bar via Data Validation

    I would like to see a slider or scroll bar become an in-cell data validation option (just as I'd like to see a date picker for dates and a new checkbox option).

    This feature could be integrated into the "Whole number" validation criteria with a simple checkbox like "Show scroll bar".

    When you double-click or double-tap the cell to edit the value, the scrollbar could appear immediately below or above the cell, as shown in the attached image. (For this image, I used a form field scroll bar, but I think it gets the point across).

    I'd like to see…

  16. issues pasting into excel for iOS

    When pasting into excel, it adds a blank row as a header and a footer

    How it happens:
    I select a row of cells in Numbers (2 or more cells)
    I copy those cells
    I go to paste the cells into Excel
    The cells get pasted into a row below the one I have selected, and have a header and foot added to them of blank cells

    I am able to get around the issue by pasting from Numbers into an Excel file using a different app "OfficeSuite", so I don't believe the issue is to do with Numbers

    Even…

  18. Enable form controls

    Enabling form controls would allow iOS users to use buttons to enter information with a touch rather than having to type entries.

    I'm imagining the power of being able to use the increment buttons, or radio toggles to collect data to quickly.

    Even better would be coming up with cell formats that would accept that sort of input directly, without having to setup up the form controls. Imagine a checkbox format, or a counter format with Increment buttons.

  19. Data Validation

    When an item is picked from a data validation list, the active cell should change based on the move after enter preference.

  20. Merge Across option.

    Please provide the "Merge Across" option under edits on our iPads because it doesn't even exist. It exists in Windows PC, but some how this option is not available in our iPads. Basically the Merge Across option lets you merge two or more tabs across.
