    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.

  3. 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

  4. 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. 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.

  9. 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?

  11. 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.

  13. Text formatting

    Text formatting for portions of a cell’s text is an important part of my workflow. iOS version currently clears any of this formatting as soon as you enter a cell.

  14. Dual-color cell fill

    The iPad version of Excel only allows for a single color cell fill, unlike the PC version which allows dual-colors with various affects. A dual-color cell fill (or at least display from a dual-color cell PC file) would be helpful.

  17. I would LOVE to customize the data sorting

    I wish I could customize the data sorting on my iPad as I can on my MacMini. I feel very limited when working on my iPad.

  18. Why do I have to continually pick a color to fill a cell with?

    On the desktop version, once you pick a color for cell filling, it retains that color until you change it. Why do we have to continually pick the color on the iPad version instead of it retaining and a drop-down being available to change it (similar to Windows)?

  19. Need FORMAT-to-PRINT Features (e.g.: Print to PDF to share as standalone or embed into larger visual or old-fashioned Printing)

    FORMAT-to-PRINT Features to enhance both DIGITAL spreadsheet viewing (working in a document ourselves, embedding it into a larger file/other programs, presentations, etc) and also to allow HARD-COPY (Yes, the tree-killing type of printing, only when necessary). These help create better documents and easier sharing spreadsheet work in Excel or as a PDF, etc... Formatting items like these below make interpretation easy and enhances file sharing so that the senders and receivers can see the framework of the document, allowing them to spend less time figuring out what they are looking at, how long it is, what page they are on,…
