  6. Using Slicers

    We need to have slicers finally working while using the iOS mobile version of Excel so remote users can access and use all the reports.

  7. Add support for custom templates in Office Mobile apps, specifically Excel and Word.

    It would be most useful to be able to create new documents from custom templates in Excel and Word on mobile devices.

    Hi all,

    We’ve begun work on the ability to open (and create new files from) Templates on Excel for Android.

    Cheers,

  8. Allow naming of ranges and tables

    Currently, cannot edit names of ranges or tables. Naming is an extremely helpful feature when dealing with other limitations of the mobile versions.

  10. Enable form controls

    Enabling form controls would allow iOS users to use buttons to enter information with a touch rather than having to type entries.

    I'm imagining the power of being able to use the increment buttons, or radio toggles to collect data to quickly.

    Even better would be coming up with cell formats that would accept that sort of input directly, without having to setup up the form controls. Imagine a checkbox format, or a counter format with Increment buttons.

  12. Allow custom sort with multiple columns or criteria just like desktop versions

    iOS only allows a single sort column and needs the same sort and filter characteristics as the desktop versions

  14. Take picture and insert/link into sheet on the fly

    I was once asked to make/find the following app: allow a person to input data and have calculated results appear instantly AND be able to easily take pictures and link them to the data on the fly. I never made/found such an app. Fortunately, Excel for the iPhone satisfies the first condition.

    The person using the app is checking equipment, so they enter data and take a picture and move on to the next equipment. It is impractical to import all of the pictures afterwards, since they all have similar default names, so you have to check each picture for…

    Interesting idea. Thanks for the feedback. We’ll definitely consider this in our next round of planning. In the mean time, please continue to vote on this feature idea.

    Thanks,

  15. Have offline access to selected files from cloud services

    An option to have selected files from cloud services within the app (OneDrive and Dropbox hopefully). When a file is marked to be available offline, it should be downloaded, auto-synced as changes occur for it, and be available when I do not have an Internet connection. Also it should not download every time I open it. When I work on it without Internet connection, it should save changes waiting for a next connection to sync changes to the cloud.

    This user experience is very vital and essential.

  17. Need to be able lock/unlock a sheet or workbook on my iPad. This is a serious limitation. Please fix.

    Not be able to protect/unprotected a sheet on my iPad is a serious limitation for me. It defeats the purpose of having multiple devices.

  18. 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.

  20. Data Validation in Excel Android

    Good afternoon! We would like the Data Validation Tool to be available. I miss this tool in Excel, so I have to use other means and other applications to do my tasks. It would be great to make data validation available.
