    Hi Kia,

    Great suggestion, this is definitely something we’ve been thinking about. We’ll consider it along with all the other ideas here and prioritize it according to the votes – so please keep voting if you want to see the priority raised!

    Best,
    John [MS XL]

  2. 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.

  4. In-cell dropdown

    It will be extremely useful to be able to create in-cell dropdown menu on the MS excel app on ipad. I have to go back to my laptop computer everytime I do this and it is not nice

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

    Add standard excel feature ( edit cell - format - rotate text ) to any degree, or at a minimum 90 degrees or multiples of 45 degrees. This feature is becoming ubiquitous, even finding inclusion in functionally inferior products (I.e. google sheets)..due to its extreme usefulness in formatting (column headers to enable thin columns where filtered cells contain 1/few characters). This allows for maximization of coveted screen real-estate...which is of even greater premium in a mobile application where users have but one, smaller, screen with which to analyze data.

  6. Increase and Decrease INDENT

    This feature is essential for many Excel Power users as it is used for entering data under subheadings which is the only way to indicate separation in Excel. This allows them to present their spreadsheets in an appealing way.

  8. Conditional formatting

    I have a spreadsheet which I set up in Office using some Conditional Formatting relating to the date today. I had used a custom setting which when viewed on Office 365 on iPad displayed perfectly. After the latest excel update on iPad the custom setting no longer works. When I changed the setting to one of the defaults it worked perfectly again. So there seems to be a problem after the latest update.

  9. Add Header and Footer functionality

    Currently Headers and footers cannot be applied to excel work books. This is a feature my client would like to have available on the mobile application.

  12. Form Controls on iOS

    When are Form Controls going to be available on iOS devices? The number 1 tablet on the market and Form Controls don't work on it. This is 2018, what is your excuse for this not working?

  15. Vertical Tex

    Vertical Tex option in Excel IOS is obbligatory. Needs immediate upgrade. Embarrasing for Microsoft that Excel for iPad is still elementary

  18. No option to ‘strikethrough’ text or cells

    Like the heading suggests, the option to ‘strikethrough’ text or cells is missing on excel for iPhone and iPad.

  20. Lock cells to protect formula

    Being able to lock cells in Excel for iPhone / iPad would be greatly appreciated. To protect formulas from being accidentally edited or deleted.
