  1. Sheet protection

    Please add the ability to protect and unprotect work sheets in excel iOS.

    I regularly use excel on Mac and lock my cells for security and to avoid accidental input. But then I can’t unprotect the sheet from my iOS devices to edit it on the go. Frustrating and disappointing as I have seen this suggestion frequently pop up.

  3. Analysis ToolPak/Solver for Chromebook

    Please add Analysis ToolPak/Solver for Chromebook. I just bought this Chromebook for school with the intent of using Excel. After hours of setting it up and downloading all the necessary items, I find out I can’t even use this Chromebook. I now have to return this computer. Such a hassle. Would have been nice to know in advance.

  4. picture comment added using desktop excel should be viewable in android mobile excel.

    I have added photos inside comments boxes within an Excel workbook - see here for how I did this - https://www.thewindowsclub.com/insert-a-picture-into-a-comment-in-excel. I did this on desktop Excel.

    Now, when I view the file on Android mobile, I cannot see a way to display these photos which are inside the comment boxes. Has anybody managed to do this, or is it even possible?

  11. DESKTOP CLASS for iPadOS (cursor support, fully featured, MACROS!)

    Hey, I love the Office suite, Microsoft does some of the best software in the world. But some of use feel as second class citizens with your offers on iPad and other tablets.
    First of all, aside from Word and PowerPoint, please bring multi-window support on iPad. And make a full DESKTOP CLASS version, now with mouse support would be great! I need some features which are essential in my workflow, such as: conditional formatting, consolidate, remove duplicates, group, subtotal, password for individual sheets and full books, MACROS, etc. The iPad is capable of having a full Excel experience, and…

  12. Is it possible to add a manual button to raise and lower keyboard when using excel on a tablet?

    Is it possible to add a manual button to raise and lower keyboard when using excel on a tablet? Keyboard is difficult to open when cell is double tapped and pops up in situations where it is not needed like when reviewing formulas that use multiple cells and cannot be closed.

  13. It would be really useful if we could make lists in Excel on iPad, please?

    A really useful feature available on the desktop version is the ability to make drop-down lists. It would be great if we could have the same in the iPad version, please.

    Thanks
    Stephen

  14. Allow subscription free use for tablets greater than 10.1 screen size

    If your screen size on a mobile device is greater than 10.1 inches you need a subscription to edit spreadsheets on onedrive excel.
    I have just upgraded my iPad from 4th gen to iPad Air, and apples new basic iPad screen is 10.2 inches.
    Therefore, may people will suddenly find they can’t edit their basic spreadsheets that they have been using no problems for years.
    Please remove the screen size limit, having it doesn’t make me want to get a subscription (a nonsense for just one spreadsheet), it makes me want to find another provider.
    Please fix this!
