    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.

  2. Full desktop class for Excel on iPad please

    iPad Pro has become a very powerful piece of hardware. The recent iPadOS has also bring it closer to become a real laptop replacement. I'm one of Office 365 users and I'm using both my Windows desktop/laptop and my iPad Pro during travelling as it's easy to bring along with long battery lasting. I'm an Accountant, so most of my tasks involves with Excel, and Excel on iPad sucks, it lacks so many features and we cannot even open multi instances of Excel even on the newly released iPadOS. iPadOS now has desktop class Safari browser, it would be really…

  7. Protect/UnProtect Cells/Work Book with Android and iOS apps

    Not being able to Protect/Unprotect stuff with the android app is a big hindrance. If I am not in the office and I need to make a quick update to an excel sheet I am unable to since I cant unprotect the sheet. That means I have to wait until I get back to the office to do anything and sometimes it is a time sensitive issue that needs to be resolved asap. Implementing this into the android app would be a great addition and help streamline the experience.

  10. Enable Password protection of spreadsheet on Excel Mobile

    I just posted this question to Microsoft forums and found out that this feature is still not functional in Excel for iOS:
    I'm using Excel on an iPad Pro and would just tried to find a way to password protect a spreadsheet I'm saving to OneDrive. Searching the general web and these forums didn't readily surface an answer. I've seen old responses indicating that it wasn't possible to password protect a single sheet in 2014; however, I'd be surprised if it's not even possible to password protect an entire spreadsheet in the latest version of Excel for iOS.

  11. Data Refresh of stock prices (Data Types) in Excel Android & iOS app.

    Data Refresh of external data links (stock quotes) in iPhone Excel app.

    When on the windows laptop, under the data tab, the "Refresh All" button works great. It would be very handy if we had the same functionality on our mobile devices.

  12. Data Validation in Excel Mobile

    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.

  13. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. Refresh Data Connections and Pivot Tables

    Allow refresh of Data Connections and Pivot tables. If I'm away from work or on site, sometimes I need access to our reports/data but I cannot currently refresh any data connections from a mobile device. I created an excel sheet on my laptop to do so but it is not always easy to access a normal computer and sometimes it would be better to use a phone or tablet. It makes little sense to me currently why these devices do not have basic excel capabilities

  20. 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
