  3. Add cell notes to phone versions so that comments can be displayed by hover in older versions of Excel on PC's.

    Same as other suggestions. I just added a reason, that the hover function in Exce 2013 displays the message: "Your version of Excel allows you to read this." instead of the actual text of the comment. To view and edit a coment on the PC, you have to use the right click menu, which is slow and inconvenient.

  5. Excel IPad - Keyboard shortcut to switch sheets (tabs)

    Create a keyboard shortcut to be able to switch between active sheets (tabs).

    It's very useful and simple to implement, just to add a shortcut that is already available for Windows Users (ctrl + page up/down). Since IOS keyboards doesn't have page up/down keys, you just need to change this combination to another equivalent key combo like “ctrl + arrow key” (for example).

  6. Sticky Note under Info screen of 'File'

    …to replace the comments section which is too small and not all that functional.

    Disclaimer: I often digress in utter excitement, bear with me.

    This section could include notes to oneself when drafting, editing, or sharing documents in school or at work. It transcends the type of program being used. I am a Food Scientist analyzing cook time and initial moisture over various time periods and weather patterns by use of Pivot Tables. I’ve made some great progress on my spreadsheet, but now that I’m winding down at home for the night, I’d like to jot down a few final…

  11. Quick scrolling on Excel and Word

    I use very large files on Excel because I am importing data from government sources.
    On Windows/Mac, there are scroll bars for navigation.
    The data can have hundreds of thousands of rows. is there some method to quickly navigate these files on IOS, like a way to turn on scroll bars/ hidden gestures,etc? using swiping is of course, ludicrous on large files like these! Excel for IOS importa the dataeffortlessly, but I cant move around quickly (I cannot swipethrough a 50,000 record file!)

  12. Make Excel UI more like Numbers UI: more touch friendly

    Excel feels too much like a Windows port with a few touch-friendly additions. Compare this to Numbers, which feels like a first-class citizen on iOS.

    Two examples:
    1. Showing which cells are in a formula
    - in Numbers, if you tap a cell with a formula, it always shows immediately in colors which cells are in the formula. The keyboard does not pop up yet until you exit the cell
    - in Excel, to see which cells are in a formula, you need to double tap to edit it. The virtual keyboard pops up obscuring half the screen and often…

  14. Improved Support For XLSM files

    When I open an XLSM file in Excel for iOS and save it, it disables my macros and removes my Quick Access Toolbar icons in the file in Windows. It would be great if it saves the state of the macros and the icons in the QA Toolbar, so when I open it again in Windows, i don't have to re-enable macros and re-add all the QA Toolbar icons I added for this particular file.

  16. Excel... Duplicar a linha onde as planilhas são exibidas; na linha inferior onde elas são exibidas

    Gostaria de fazer uma sugestão ou caso o recurso exista gostaria que alguém me explica-se como utilizar ele? Eu utilizo o Excel Online. Faço muitas planilhas em cada documento é acho desconfortável e ineficiente que as mesmas fiquem ocultas, tenho que clicar em (ativar a próxima planilha oculta) toda vez que quero navegar entre as que estão mais afastadas na linha, sé fosse possível duplicar a linha para exibir todas as planilhas seria muito mais rápido trabalhar entre elas. obrigado. Excel ...

    Duplicate the line where the spreadsheets are displayed; ON the bottom line where they are displayed
    Would you…

  18. Android: Hide the formula bar when viewing chart sheets

    The formula bar remains visible but not active taking up valuable screen real estate. A particular issue in portrait view, see sample attached

  19. Excel is inaccessible for VoiceOver users after the April 11th update

    I am a VoiceOver user and usually use Excel for the desktop. Occasionally, I have to take my worksheets on the road and need to edit them. I went on a trip to New Orleans from February 12 to February 22. During my trip, I could navigate around my worksheets and edit the cells. After the April 11 update, I tried to take an excel spreadsheet on the road but couldn't navigate the spreadsheet or edit the cells. Proper regression testing would have caught this problem. Please fix it hopefully in the next update.
    Thanks so much.

  20. Hardware keyboard scroll buttons

    If you have a hardware keyboard connected, Excel needs keyboard shortcuts to quickly move up or down a number of rows or left or right a number of columns.
