  1. 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!

        • Support Google Drive on Android

          Office apps (Excel) do not support Google Drive as a place. One must download from Drive, edit in Excel, and upload in Drive. Doesn't make sense, not seamless, already supported in Windows apps when an add-on is installed. Please support.

          • Need ability to save pdfs with a different file name not the file name of the spreadsheet

            Once you initiate a save as pdf the file name appears locked. So it creates a name the same as your spreadsheet.
            I want to be able to select a different name at this point.
            At present I have to find the created pdf and rename it every time.

                    • Data Refresh of external data links (stock quotes) in iPhone Excel app.

                      Data Refresh of external data links (stock quotes) in iPhone Excel app.

                      When on the windows laptop, under the data tab, the "Refresh All" button works great. It would be very handy if we had the same functionality on our mobile devices.

                      • Paste Special across different sheets

                        On Excel on iPad, if you try to copy formulas, for example, from one sheet, and open another sheet in a different file on the Excel app, it won't give the full paste special options e.g. formulas, formats, values. It only displays "picture". Paste special works fine within the same sheet, just not across sheets.

                        • Excel Analysis Took Pak

                          I need to have the analysis tool pak for chromebook for my college courses. I paid for a year of office 365 and expect it should have the same features as it does for a PC or MAC. I paid the same price as those users would and I expect the same features to be available to me.

                            I would be very happy if a macro is added In Excel for Mobile Devices(Apple store). If is not available because of Apple Store App guideline, then please add a macro that do not have references in other files but only in its own file.

                            • Add cell notes to phone versions so that comments can be displayed by hover in older versions of Excel on PC's.

                              Same as other suggestions. I just added a reason, that the hover function in Exce 2013 displays the message: "Your version of Excel allows you to read this." instead of the actual text of the comment. To view and edit a coment on the PC, you have to use the right click menu, which is slow and inconvenient.

                                    • 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.
