  3. 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.

  6. I see many comments and nothing worked on

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. 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…

  12. Add the possibility to display custom backgrounds for mobile devices.

    Custom backgrounds disappear on mobile Devices, both ios and Android. These can look god on custom styled Dashboard sheets on desktop, but will disappear on Device.

  13. 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

  14. 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!

  15. Select multiple sheets in workbook on Android phone

    I need to select multiple sheets of a workbook using Excel on my Android phone. These sheets must be saved into one file as a PDF document. Hoe do I accomplish this?

  16. validation popup width is to small

    The current width of the popup is way too small when having a validation list in cell. It should at least twice of the width what it is now.

    The way it is now there is no use for it. Yes, maybe for a validation check if the value is "Yes";"No" or "Maybe".
    Specially when you want to use a product selection, this is way to small.

  17. Need to be able lock/unlock a sheet or workbook on my iPad. This is a serious limitation. Please fix.

    Not be able to protect/unprotected a sheet on my iPad is a serious limitation for me. It defeats the purpose of having multiple devices.

  18. Copy formulas from one worksheet to another

    Seriously - Excel on my iPad does not allow copying of formulas from one worksheet to another? Paste special only allows a picture to be pasted.

    Someone is laughing at MS. To call this product Excel when it cannot provide basic functionality is a sick joke.

    Restore some pride in your work and fix this gap.

  19. Hyperlink to other files (e.g. *.pdf) located on the local device (i.e. the internet)

    I am a musician and I have hundreds of songs as individual PDFs. Managing them all combined in a single PDF is not scalable. I want to use an Excel spreadsheet on my Android tablet as a master database that can be searched/sorted that has links to the PDF for each song. This is straightforward using Excel on Windows. Unfortunately, even with relative referencing, I cannot get this to work on Android. From the Excel app for Android it would be nice to:
    1. Use links to reference non-excel files and open them in the relevant app.
    2. From the…

  20. Drag & Drop - Cursor

    When copying data by dragging down, the cursor ends up on the ORIGINAL entry but in the vast majority of cases, the DUPLICATE entry needs to be changed or altered. The cursor should end up on the start of the DUPLICATE entry
