  1. 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.

  2. add CELL function

    some functions are not working on the iPhone app since the most recent update. The CELL function and the FILENAME function no longer work with the most recent update. Please reinstate the functions that were dropped with the most recent update.

  3. Check mark box functionality

    We need to be able to check and uncheck the check mark boxes in Excel. I switched back to using numbers because they have this functionality and Excel doesn't.

    - with a dedicated (crt sht enter) button
    - while pressing crt sht enter on physical keyboards

  5. Excel for Chromebooks

    I'm currently in a stats class that requires the use of Excel and the Analysis ToolPak add-on. After trying to use the Google Sheets alternative to no avail, I found that I still had a Microsoft Office 365 account through a previous school. However, there are still many insufficiencies with Excel on the Chromebook, even preventing me from adding the ToolPak or making any specific alterations to graphs/charts. I do not have regular access to PCs or MACs (it did not work for an iPad as well) so I am unsure of how well work will be performed for present…

  6. Excel Analysis Took Pak

    I need to have the analysis tool pak for chromebook for my college courses. I paid for a year of office 365 and expect it should have the same features as it does for a PC or MAC. I paid the same price as those users would and I expect the same features to be available to me.

  9. Iteration

    In my case I want to be able to enter a number in one cell, then use this number in a formula and let the result only have two numbers behind the comma. In order to use the „round formula“ in the same box as the „sum formula“, the Iteration option is needed.

  12. Must include desktop functions for utilizing powerful android mobiles

    The owner android version of excel is useful only for basic excel needs. Whereas to utilize the highly powerful android phones of today it must include functions - pivot table/charts, goal seek, lookups from separate workbooks, macros, text to columns, remove duplicates, conditional formatting, various file saving formats, all paste options etc.

  15. gps navigation

    please create two new functions or addins that inserts the ipads gps latitude and longitude into the excel spreadsheet. It would be great for doing navigation calculations. It would be great if the functions continuously updated as the ipad moves rather than having to manually recalculate.

  17. 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 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…
