  1. 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.

  4. Mouse support for iPad OS 13.4

    Now that iOS 13.4 supports the mouse, Excel for iPad should also. Mouse works perfectly in the other apps. Very frustrating in Excel.

  5. Expand Drop-down Lists to Show Full Text on iPad App.

    Drop-down lists on iPad version of Excel are shown in a fixed size area. If text for each selection is larger than that area, string is cut off with three dots in the end. It would be better to have a drop-down with flexible size so that all text can be seen for each element in list.

  6. Keyboard Shortcut to Edit Active Cell (like F2)

    Excel for iPad needs a hardware keyboard shortcut to "Edit the active cell and put the insertion point at the end of its contents." This is the F2 function in Excel for PC. This shortcut is very important for people who rely on the arrow keys to navigate spreadsheets.

  7. Ability to bold or italicize half of a cell

    In regular Excel on my computer, I'm able to bold or italicize only a portion of the text within a cell, while keeping the other portion regular font. This is unable to be done on the iPad version of Excel. Please add this simple functionality to the iPad version of Excel.

  8. Filtering Excel Sheet on iPad

    Our company has a live Excel document on an internal Sharepoint site on the cloud. Several people have access to it and all of us can edit and update it as needed. Some of us are using desktop computers and some of us are using iPads.

    I already know how to do this on the desktop but, my question is:

    On the iPad, would like to make a way to….


    1. Filter the excel sheet for personal viewing (“Just see mine”) without affecting everyone else?


    2. Still edit and update the excel document while it is filtered for personal viewing?

  9. Enabling copying sheets from one one workbook to another with proper functionality

    At the moment when you copy paste a sheet from workbook to another all the formuale are lost.

    This is a big weekness compared to working within a windows environment. It effectively means that workbooks cannot be combined.

    For example, if I have a standardised financial analysis worksheet that I want to add to a work book containing a financial model I would have to re-create the formulae each time.

  10. Slider or Scroll Bar via Data Validation

    I would like to see a slider or scroll bar become an in-cell data validation option (just as I'd like to see a date picker for dates and a new checkbox option).

    This feature could be integrated into the "Whole number" validation criteria with a simple checkbox like "Show scroll bar".

    When you double-click or double-tap the cell to edit the value, the scrollbar could appear immediately below or above the cell, as shown in the attached image. (For this image, I used a form field scroll bar, but I think it gets the point across).

    I'd like to see…

  11. increase width of dropdown lists

    As is use data validation to create drowdown lists i am in need of a higher width of those lists using excel iOs App.

    The entries are very long so that i can only see the beginning. The decision which entry should be taken must be made at the end.

    I would like to increase the width of a dropdown list manually. Please improve this asap.

    Many thanks in Advance.

  14. Allow elements to be placed between grid lines

    Sometimes it is useful to be able to place an element (character, bullet point, etc) “between” the grid lines. As a proof of concept, I've attached a mockup with the letter ‘ы’ inserted between two horizontally adjacent cells.

    I expect this addition to the Excel worksheet model to be fundamental enough that it will doubtlessly be useful for many novel applications, even though at the moment I can't think of any.

    Thanks!

  16. WE NEED THE ADVANCED FEATURES!

    NO PIVOT TABLES, NO CONDITIONAL FORMATS, NO DROPDOWN LISTS... ANYTHING EVEN A LITTLE BIT ADVANCED FROM THE ORIGINAL EXCEL THIS APP LACKS IT.

    DO YOU REALIZE HOW ADVANCED AND POWERFUL ARE MOBILE DEVICES NOWADAYS????

    I GIVE IT THE FIRST YEAR, IF YOU GUYS DON’T IMPLEMENT THESE FEATURES TO THE MOBILE APP I’LL DROP IT AT ONCE.

  19. Permit use of Draw for marking up and adding numbers, text,etc when using "Freeze Pane" for Headers. Was functional before latest update.

    Allow use of "Draw" functions at the same time using "Freeze Pane" functions. This was possible before the 4/13/2017 update.
