  3. Format keyboard appropriately

    On mobile devices the keyboard presented should be that pertaining to the format of the field being completed. That is if you are entering data in a field formatted as numeric you should be presented with a numeric keyboard and not the last keyboard used as happens at present. This is done by other apps like google sheets so I cannot see why it can't be done in excel

  4. Repair or update Excel for Android Nougat 7.1, it isn't working

    The Excel App was working in the 7.0 nougat platform, since I updated to 7.1 Nougat is not working anymore, it can't open , also, if you solve this, improve the performance too, since working in 7.0 , Excel, word and PPT were a bit laggy . My smartphone is a Moto z with 4gb ram, I had to switch to Polaris , waiting for you guys to make an update and figure the problem .

  7. Scatter plot selects wrong data for display, need to manually specify range for x,y data

    Need ability to manually edit or specify data ranges for scatter plots. Currently is automatically determined from initial range selection during chart creation, and this is frequently incorrect.

    PROBLEM.. ref.. 1389918527
    having problems accessing files on my onedrive thru the excel app,, on ipad, keeps telling me "cant open file" {file may be locked,in use,or you don't have sufficient permission} this is resolved only for a short time to log out of excel on ipad then log back in, then re-add my onedrive account. the same error will randomly happen the next day. I have been thru the uninstall, reinstall, reset, and to purchase of a new ipad that has same issues,, this is a APP problem.

  10. graphing - see / modify data series

    That I know of, there's no way to create a graph and then edit the data series afterwards. Clearly there are multiple data series created in some charts but I don't see a way to view / edit them without a lot of tedious dragging control handles around in the spreadsheet. It would be so much better to be able to have a dialog box pop up and hand edit the data series.

    Please add the feature to Excel for Android. This is the ability to create custom number (cell) format as it is in Windows. I need numbers to add units of quantity. Pre-defined is only currency unit on Android. I am adding "m²", "kg" and the like. Thank you.

  13. Wireless Mouse support within IOS Office (as Citrix did with the X1 Mouse)

    Apples lacking native support for mice limits us with IOS Office.

    Please consider mouse support directly within IOS Office. Maybe a partnership with Citrix to add support for the X1 Mouse?

    (Link to show Citrix X1 Mouse) http://store.citrix.com/store/citrix/en_US/pd/ThemeID.28169600/productID.317779200)

  14. V2.0 autocomplete really breaks barcode scanning-- need option to turn off.

    V2.0 autocomplete is 'faster' -- so it causes a HUGE issue for barcode scanning. This shouldn't have been a surprise to development since it started to an issue posted here in 2016... but now V2.0 makes it faster and more of an issue.... PLEASE give us the option to turn it off in iOS or option to install old version until fixed. This totally broke our workflow and there is no way to fix it ourselves. We have the option to disable autocomplete on the desktop version, but those properties don't stay with the file, so opening on OneDrive via…

  15. Really hope that you're not closing this (and Word/Powerpoint) for desktop users

    I really hope that you are not closing this down as it is really useful for small form-factor tablets where you don't need and don't want a full desktop experience (and don't want to "waste" a licence on it).

  17. Bug issue. On Excel, when i have an external data connection via the web, for instance, on iPhone it is not in that yet. So the issue is why

    When i have an external data connection via the web, for instance, on iPhone it is not in that yet. So the issue is why does it disconnect the one on my PC, just because the iPhone version doesn't work yet? It should say (as it does) that the link is not going to work, but then not disconnect the link permanently, because then I have to re-insert it every time I use the PC version.

  18. Make it stop re-inserting rows

    You can improve Excel for Android by making it stop re-inserting rows after they've been deleted. This happens all the time and it creates an awful nuisance when trying to navigate a small spreadsheet.

  19. Virtual trackpad does not work well

    When you in a text box in Excel with the on-screen keyboard and iOS 9+, you should be able to use the virtual trackpad to move the cursor around the text box (pressing and holding the keyboard with two fingers). This works well in all iOS first-party apps and MS Word.

    However in Excel there are three problems:
    - once you double tap a text box to edit the text box and press the keyboard with two fingers, the cursor jumps to another place. This should not happen.
    - you cannot move the cursor vertically, the cursor stays on the…
