  1. Office Add-in support

    At Build 2015 it was announced Office Add-ins were to be available inside Office apps on Android by the end of the year. What happened? Particularly interested in progress on Add-in development for Excel on Android.

  2. Allow Excel for iPad to use the Signature Line feature available in Excel for Windows.

    International Seafoods of Alaska uses Excel files on iPads to fill out and submit quality control worksheets for at its seafood processing facility and needs to have the QC Inspectors and QC Supervisors sign the Excel worksheet forms we've created in Excel for Windows. We've tested inserting a pair of Signature Lines for these signatures, but in Excel for iPad, the signature line added in Excel for Windows is visible, but does not respond. Please make Excel for iPad enable the use of the Signature Lines, so we can use our Apple Pencils to sign Excel worksheets before submitting them.

  6. Selecting Non-Adjacent Cells

    I'm not able to select non-adjacent cells in Excel on the iPad Pro. That means that I can;t selectively apply formulas or build charts with data from non-adjacent columns. It's an absurd thing not to be able to do. Under any other circumstances this would be a matter fo just hitting the Ctrl button. You all need to fix this immediately, I feel like I've been sold something non-functional.

  7. Add option to change picture

    The desktop version of excel has the option to change a picture to a different picture when you right click on it. This could be added along side the copy, cut, and delete options when you click a picture in the mobile application.

  9. vertical text - (edit cell -,for,at cell - rotate text)

    The ability to rotate text in a cell to varying degrees (at least 90) which is available in pc excel via edit cells - format -,rotate text....should be included ASAP. This feature used primarily in the header cells of a column where the filtered cells would be of limited width (I.e. 1 digit...or an “X”) allowing greatly increased utilization of limited viewing real estate.

    Ironically, Google Sheets has even included this feature at this point (formulas were once required)...despite the app being barren in terms of features compared to xls in general.

    Please add this staple functionality.

  11. RELATIVE or ABSOLUTE MACROS

    In my experience when a Macro is about to be composed in EXCEL, there is no definitive way to know if it is set to RELATIVE or ABSOLUTE by LOOKING at the selection after clicking on MACROS ICON. By holding the cursor on the ‘Use Relative Reference displays the explanation but does not designate WHICH of the two functions is actually activated. My meaning is this: It is not until the MACRO is activated do you really find out that ABSOLUTE was set when RELATIVE was required. If when starting the composition, and requiring RELATIVE, by clicking on the Use…

  12. Don’t automatically open last document

    Whenever I open Excel it automatically tries to download and open my last document. This actually takes significant time and slows the opening of Excel, especially when I don’t want to use that last document. Perhaps a simple switch in settings to control this behavior? I would prefer that Excel just opens to the file list.

  13. 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!

  14. Fix the numeric keyboard for iPhone X

    There is a small bug in the numeric keyboard in iOS. In iPhone X the keyboard is too close to the bottom of the screen. Almost 9 out of 10 times when I use it Excel is sent to the background by the bar in the middle. See the picture.

  15. reinstate the scroll buttons - these had been added earlier on, and then they are removed recentely.

    Reinstate the scroll buttons - these had been added earlier on, and, strange enough, they are removed recently.

  20. Need ability to edit data in charts

    You can create charts in Excel, and use sliders to include more series, but it only works if all data points are inside a table.

    If data series are in different parts of a sheet, Excel for iOS cannot edit the source data to pick the right data.

    Please add this feature.
