  1. Storage usage limits for mobile app file cache/downloads

    An optional limit to the amount of storage used by the mobile apps to download recently used files. Otherwise a limit to the number of files cached in this manner based on how recently they were used or a limit on how long it keeps them on the mobile device.

    This would allow users to save space on the mobile device. Keeping only documents they expect to use easily accessible.
    Along with a keep on device setting for important files to provide users control over this functionality.

  2. Show better information in File listing on open

    I have stored wbks in iCloud as .xlsm and then found that Macros don’t work. So I stored them again as.xlsx. However, when I come to clear out unusable stuff it is impossible to identify which is which. File suffix, creation date should all be shown.
    Also when I want to save iCoud files on my iPad (so that I can always go back to my original when the local version gets messed up) it is not evident where to find my local storage - of course it is in there but under PUBLIC! That is not obvious and the…

  4. Link OneDrive and Excel for file access

    When I go to an Excel file in OneDrive I can view but if I click the Excel icon and I’m not connected to an internet connection the file will not open even though the files are saved to my iPad and Excel is installed on my iPad the file cannot be opened offline? This makes no sense to me?

  7. I’d like the ability to create folders on an iPad, not just on OneDrive.

    I’d like the ability to create folders on an iPad, not just on OneDrive. As it stands now, files created or saved on the iPad are put in one giant list. It would be great if I could create a folder called Work and another folder called School to keep files separated for quicker location. Excel works great on my iPad! Having the ability to separate my files in their own folder would make the App even better!

  8. Add Custom Templates

    Please add the ability to save a workbook or an existing template that you’ve customized as a new custom template. This would be very helpful as it is very time consuming to need to edit the saved template every time you want a new workbook. Eg. if you’re making an invoice-to have your name etc. be already there(on your custom template) instead of entering it every single time you make an invoice.
    Thx.

  9. Not to save by default when opening files

    Not to save by default when opening files As it is usual to open and perform no edit but to update the file modification date without sense as no change was made

  10. Integrate with Procore as a “place” to open and save documents

    Procore is a leading construction project management tool. It would greatly increase our teams’ ability to work with Office 365 documents if they could open AND save files back to Procore from their iOS devices.

  13. saving excel files in other formats?????

    Please, i have an iPad "Pro" and i cannot save a file as a .csv. I cannot understand how this is not possible. This is basic functionality for any science/engineering application. Basically it means that without this, mobile Excel is not a solution i can adopt.

  16. 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.

  17. Open and save files on personal NAS

    Would be great if we could add our own personal NAS to 'Places' so we are not tied to using third party cloud storage providers.

  19. Fix bug: Any file opened from DropBox or iCloud Drive (and perhaps elsewhere) vanishes from Recent files shortly after you close it.

    Fix the bug described in the title. It appears to happen whenever the app is terminated in the background. So if you don't leave Excel or you return to it relatively quickly, the files appear in Recent. Wait to long and they vanish and you have to go find them again. Very inconvenient.

  20. Workbooks are being un-pinned from the top of the “Recent” list

    I have several Excel workbooks that I use regularly and so I have them pinned to the top of the “Recent” list.

    Recently, probably since the update to version 2.19, these workbooks are being un-pinned from the list although I have not un-pinned them.

    There seem to be two actions that cause this to happen.

    1. Open one of the pinned workbooks then close it again, with or without saving changes.
    2. Pin a different workbook to the top of the list.

    This happens on both my iPad and my iPhone.

    The same problem occurs with documents in Word -…
