    We acknowledge and agree that it would be useful to enable PivotTable creation on iPad and Android. We do hope to eventually implement this, but it’s not likely to happen this year because our PivotTable engineers are currently focused on implementing PivotTable functionality in Excel on the web.

  6. A button that switches to excel desktop

    Should be a button that switches to excel desktop when you need a feature that's in desktop version.

    Too much of a pain to close the mobile app, open desktop excel, find the file .....

  9. Merge Across option.

    Please provide the "Merge Across" option under edits on our iPads because it doesn't even exist. It exists in Windows PC, but some how this option is not available in our iPads. Basically the Merge Across option lets you merge two or more tabs across.

  11. Add the ability to grab data from sensors on the phone e.g. GPS location

    There are a lot of use cases for a mobile phone or tablet in using data that basically involve collecting data in the field then analysing it on a spreadsheet once back in an office. Why not just add the ability to grab the data on the mobile versions of Excel?

  12. Shared login with Outlook

    With the iOS office suite I am required to login to each app separately, which can be quite frustrating when my password changes and I re-login to each app separately.

    Apps made by other vendors (such as Google) allow shared account login accross all of it's apps where I only need to login once and all the apps just work.

  13. XLS Files opened on iPad should be exportable to CSV format

    Believe it or not, some companies are attempting to standardize on Apple iPads as the business tool for their external employees. I'm working with a company that has $45Billion+ in sales; 155,000 Employees.

    I work for a technology company with $800Million in sales and 3,000 employees.

    One application would be optimally serviced by the ability to open an Excel file, with drop down lists, on an Apple iPad and once the file data is customized by the remote employee, I would need to have them save the edited file to a .CSV file to import into a webpage that has…

  14. Hardware keyboard scroll buttons

    If you have a hardware keyboard connected, Excel needs keyboard shortcuts to quickly move up or down a number of rows or left or right a number of columns.

  15. Hyperlinks Within a Workbook Should Go Directly to the Cell

    Currently, all hyperlinks require the user to click the cell and then click again to navigate the hyperlink. This makes sense when the hyperlink is to a webpage as you don't want the user being taken somewhere they don't want to go.

    However, if the hyperlink is simply to a cell or worksheet within the same workbook, then the user should be taken there directly without having to confirm the jump. This would make navigating with the Excel iPad app a lot easier.

  16. More Options for Loading Add-ins

    Add-ins can work on iPad, however adding them to the device is limited to side-loading via iTunes or those listed on the Office Store. There needs to be a more direct way to add add-ins to iPad Excel as these two options have limitations.

    Sideloading is difficult as it requires iTunes and it seems that everytime that the add-in is loaded, it pulls the web-app from the server so offline use is not possible.

    The Office store is not good for developers who are not making add-ins for the public nor their personal company, but clients. It is not possible…

  17. Opening Excel file from other app should not be read only

    When I open an Excel file into the Excel app from an email, I want to be able to edit it before deciding whether to save it or not. Excel always open files from other apps as read only, so I have to make a local or cloud copy to do anything. This is annoying as it will take up space with Excel files that I may never use again.

    Another example, is that I may want to open an Excel file from an email, make a few edits and email it back without saving it locally.
