  3. Set a mobile view for spreadsheets

    I often access 12 column spreadsheet on a iPhone which is a paint to deal with. It would be very useful to setup a “mobile view” on the 4 or 5 columns most important to me. Clicking a row could show me the information included in other columns

  5. Default Zoom for Excel

    Depending on a user’s device and screen available, an ability to have a default global zoom for the app would be great! It would save a lot of time playing with + or - zoom buttons or pinching & expanding every time a file is open. THX!

  6. display comment background images in mobile version of Excel

    I use the comments feature to display thumbnail images that equate to full sized images linked to in a cell. Have automated the loading of thumbnails into comment backgrounds via VB code then distribute the non-macro-enabled spreadsheet for others to walk through thumbnails to then select images for download. (this is an old family photo catalog with full size images on a web server.) The mobile version of this catalog would be spiffier than the computer-based version if this one feature worked. thank you.

  7. Allow more than one file to open in the Excel app

    The app only allows 1 file to be opened. Many users will be viewing multiple files, therefore limits productivity when using chromebook

  10. Night mode

    Please add dark/night mode to the Office suite where I can make the cells either black with white text or something darker similar to what you can do within the desktop version.

    Excel is particularly ******* the eyes! Thanks!

  11. Needing to view the photos in the comment box that has been attached

    I have come to a serious problem. I have to work remotely out in the mountains where there is no service. I have updated my excel spread sheet with all the names and photos of the plants database that I am using for my excursion. However, when I open the spreadsheet through my phone, I can view all the comments; however I can not see the photos of the plants that I a suppose to be collecting. Therefore, this has definitely been a tool that no longer works for me. I will have to find a different tool to use…

  14. Make “split” feature available on iPad & iPhone apps

    Currently the “split” feature available on the desktop version under the View tab is not available on the iOS apps. Even after splitting the spreadsheet on the desktop version, I’m unable to view the split on iOS — the spreadsheet reverts back to how it was before.

  18. print preview lines

    Want to be able to see the dotted guide lines so that I know everything can be fitted in to one page prior to printing on the iPad like it would for on a computer or laptop.
