  4. Ability to turn off Autocomplete for iOS

    Autocomplete causes problems when using iOS with a barcode scanner. We need the ability to turn off Autocomplete like the desktop version.

  8. abilty to import directory data.

    ability to import my file structure in spreadsheet form to manage backup and redundancy management. full path name and an MD5 hash value for each file (for redundancy checking) would be very helpful. Especially if it could reach across several hard drives.

  10. The new Box integration is prone to lose data in an online/offline scenario.

    Previously, I used the Box sync tool and chose which folders I wanted to have sync'ed locally. That worked great! As it is now, the MS Office app gets confused and is prone to lose locally made changes that were made offline.

  11. Needs to have the table lookup function

    I use the table lookup data function on desktop Excel. Would like the same ability on the ipad. I use this to price my work.

  13. Ability to open any file, even if not editable

    I have some files that have macros in them that I would like to be able to view without running the macros.
    It would be even better if I could add data to them and not break the macro portion so when I open later in a desktop version I can run the macros on the new data.

  14. Add a widget option that can open a specific tab in a specific document

    I have a robust Excel document for keeping track of finances. The document utilizes macros and is generally unfriendly for mobile use. It would be nice to have a widget that could instantly open a stripped down version of the document (perhaps a single tab, or even specific cells), where I could view relevant information or make very simple edits on a touch friendly interface.

  18. Ability to open any file, even if not editable

    Just as the iOS version, all files can be opened, not all can be edited or all functions are available. However, all can be opened.

    HI Scott,

    We’re working on loading more files. Can you add some more detail about what specific issue you’re running into here, so we can prioritize it appropriately?

    Thanks,
    Dan [MS]

  19. Add "open in" functionality

    Add "Open In" functionality to Excel for iOS (and Word and PowerPoint). This would allow the user to open an Excel file in other applications.

  20. Add support for trendline generation on mobile (iOS/Android) apps

    I teach highschool science in a schoolboard that has invested heavily in a BYOD setting and the O365 platform. We do many correlational studies in our science program and having students able to easily generate trend lines on their data sets would make the mobile apps much more powerful to use.
