      • 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?

        • Need to work on files when I'm offline

          There are times when I need to work on files and do not have Internet connections to sign-in and be able to edit and save the file. This seems so necessary for people who are on the road, traveling, and on vacation without their Internet hookup. When I can't open and work on and save files, Office 365 is useless and I'll find an alternative. Let me work on it and then upload when I get home to replace the old one. Gove me the option to select certain files to work when I'm offline,

            • vertical text - (edit cell -,for,at cell - rotate text)

              The ability to rotate text in a cell to varying degrees (at least 90) which is available in pc excel via edit cells - format -,rotate text....should be included ASAP. This feature used primarily in the header cells of a column where the filtered cells would be of limited width (I.e. 1 digit...or an “X”) allowing greatly increased utilization of limited viewing real estate.

              Ironically, Google Sheets has even included this feature at this point (formulas were once required)...despite the app being barren in terms of features compared to xls in general.

              Please add this staple functionality.

              • Vertical Tex

                Vertical Tex option in Excel IOS is obbligatory. Needs immediate upgrade. Embarrasing for Microsoft that Excel for iPad is still elementary

                    • PivotTables for IPad

                      Please make the PivotTables a part of the excel offering for the IPad. Tablets are fast replacing laptops in the world, and what is the point of excel without pivot tables. Please, try as quick as possible to make it available on the IPads, a lot of people will be relieved and delighted. Thanks.

                      • Why do I have to continually pick a color to fill a cell with?

                        On the desktop version, once you pick a color for cell filling, it retains that color until you change it. Why do we have to continually pick the color on the iPad version instead of it retaining and a drop-down being available to change it (similar to Windows)?

                                  • 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.

                                      Expose a quick & ready method to begin inputting text into current active cell from an OCR scan from the camera. There would ideally be a way to optionally have the scan jump to the next column, next row, or no jump, after confirming good read.

                                      An example scenario: you have been tasked with taking inventory of all the computers in your office, including serial numbers. You create a new spreadsheet on your mobile device. Click in the first row and make a "header" row with labels "office number", "serial number", "item type" and "model number". Next, you walk up…
