  2. Allow full Excel version on ARM chips

    As it appears possible that Apple will turn to ARM for all their devices can we see a full excel version that runs on iPad Pro and all future Apple ARM devices?

  3. SRX1481122312ID: Release a version of Excel for Android compatible with older versions of Android (i.e., 5.0.2 "Lollipop")

    I was using Excel and Word for Android as part of my O365 subscription, until, a couple of days ago, I was notified there was a new version available on the Play Store. When I tried to update, I found a notice telling me that the app was no longer compatible with my device and directed me to contact the developers for more information. I did so, using the email address at the bottom of the app's screen, but got an automated "Undeliverable" reply :(. I am in no position to spend money on a brand new device just to…

  4. Difference of 2 Values

    In Status bar “Difference” could be seen as we can see min max sum etc. To see difference we have to do manual calculations every time.

  5. Could you add a maths calculator

    So something that makes it easier to calculate insurance costs instead of having to go in and out of the app itself

  9. Add support for Apple’s shortcuts app (iOS)

    If I could read and write to cells (and maybe add those items to variables) using the shortcuts app, I could do some pretty cool automation tasks on my iPad that I use for work. It would be like having macros for iPads.

  11. Add the ability to add NOTES to Cells as well as threaded comments

    Threaded comments are the only way to add comments to cells, in the mobile version on ipad. now that they are incompatible with older versions and iPhone version, we must have the ability to add NOTES to cells to maintain compatibility.

  15. Dont fit it!

    NOT a new idea. A huge complaint! Excel does not fully function on tablets. For example many basic features such as print preview, data sort and many others do not work. Microsoft does not disclose this to retailers and thus customers purchase tablets not knowing they will not get full functionality of Excel. I have checked with many Uk retailers and they are assured EXCEl is fully functional on tablets. Thus Microsoft are lying!

  17. Make Excel for IPad as good and as usable as it is for any laptop

    Excel for IPad is so limited compared to excel for a PC, make them the same. I pay for office 365 and should have the same usability as any other customer irrelevant of the device used.

  18. Increase the characters shown on in-cell dropdown on Excel for iPad from 15

    If I use a PC to create a spreadsheet that has data validation with in-cell dropdowns, I can use the dropdowns when I load the spreadsheet onto an iPad. However, I can only see the first 15 characters of each item in the dropdown, as shown in the attachment. That is not enough for many of the lists we want our staff to use when working away from the office. Microsoft Community (MicrosoftAnswers@microsoft.com) has confirmed that this is a functionality issue, not an issue with the specific spreadsheet. Ironically, it works fine on an iPhone because the dropdown…

  19. Insert Feature In Excel does not have a way to insert/link a Word/PDF to a cell in the spreadsheet. Office 365 needs to be more robust. Tx

    Insert Feature In Excel does not have a way to insert/link a Word/PDF to a cell in Excel. Office 365 needs to be more robust if it is to be a replacement version of the MS Office for IMac. Tx

  20. Protect worksheets on excel for iPad pro

    I am using Excel on my ipad pro and I realize that it does not support sheet protection, more precisely, it does not allow me to lock and unlock sheets that were previously protected while working with the spreadsheet on a desktop. This is a significant limitation for the use I make of excel. Does anyone know if there is any plan for this BASIC and ESSENTIAL function to be added to the next version ?
    Thank you!
