  1. XLTX files are corrupted if not opened from within Excel

    XLTX files open from within the Excel iOS app work as expected (open file, it creates a Book1 file that you can Save As a new XLSX file). If you open the XLTX file from outside the Excel app (iOS Files app or 3rd party storage apps (One Drive, Egnyte, Dropbox, etc.)) it does not create the Book1 file, it remains whatever the template was named and only gives you the option to Save A Copy. If you Save A Copy, it will save it as an XLSX file, but the file will be corrupted and unopenable. Renaming the file…

      • Keeps asking to sign in to Office 365

        For some reason across all devices, all IOS Office 365 apps keep asking us to sign in to enable features, even though it was signed in a few minutes ago. Please fix so they remember the account.

                  • iPad Pro 9.7 Smart Keyboard problem

                    Has anyone else had a problem with the iPad Pro 9.7, Excel and the Smart Keyboard? Every time you type into a cell, the software keyboard pops up momentarily before promptly disappearing - like Excel makes the cell editable, displays the iPad keyboard, then realises the Smart Keyboard is attached, and then removes the iPad keyboard.
                    To reproduce:
                    - Type something into any cell
                    - Press return that then moves the focus onto the cell below
                    - Start typing something, and the software keyboard will pop up, before disappearing again

                    This bug can be reproduced on the iPads at the…

                    • Improve/Update microphone dictation mode for iPad with iOS12.

                      I’ve been using the microphone for dictation (data entry) on the app for several months. The app closes on iPad with iOS 12 (I just updated my device) while trying to still use it. Reinstalling the app nor resetting the iPad doesn’t work.

                          • Adding Excel File Icon not available on Onedrive for IOS when signed into business account but available on Personal Account sign in

                            I was referred to the Excel for Mobile team after trying to resolve the issue through my Office 365 Admin Support portal. When using OneDrive for IOS and signed into a business account, there are options for adding a powerpoint and word file but no option for adding an excel file. When signed into a personal account the option becomes available. I also have contacted OneDrive for IOS and they said this problem was outside of their expertise.

                              • Please fix file duplication

                                When I duplicate a file and tell it to “Save Copy Only”, the changes are also saved in the original file. I then have to open the original file, close it, tell it to “Discard Changes”, and open it again to get back my original file.

                                When working with a file on my iPad, this is an annoyance. When working with a shared file on OneDrive, this leads to severe data integrity issues.

                                Please fix!

                                        • Excel for iPad version 2.5 vs. 2.6

                                          Hi all,
                                          I apologize is this is not "the place" to make requests like this but the other MSFT forum is oddly quiet on this issue:
