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

  2. Link to External Data

    Please add feature to allow a link from one workbook to data in another workbook. The feature needs to enable update of the linked data. This feature already exists in Excel 2016 and 2013.

  3. 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

  4. Csv

    Simply build in support for opening CVS files. A number of websites that I use to pull down reports and data only export delimited files. I can only open them in Apple Numbers to mixed results. This should absolutely be functionality that the IOS app should take ownership of.

    Apple pencil is great; so is the drawing feature but it usability is limited since it there isn't a way to convert to text/numbers within cells.

  17. Paste Special across different sheets

    On Excel on iPad, if you try to copy formulas, for example, from one sheet, and open another sheet in a different file on the Excel app, it won't give the full paste special options e.g. formulas, formats, values. It only displays "picture". Paste special works fine within the same sheet, just not across sheets.

  18. I need access to Regression via Chromebook Excel

    I just purchased this Chromebook in August for school because I am supposed to have access to office 365 because I'm a student. Well, I can't retrieve the Regression Analysis on my laptop. I need Microsoft to get on the ball with this problem. Although Chromebook has an android operating system, I am sure that a company your size can come up with a way for us to have full access on our tablets.

  19. Input/output data

    Allow data to be input or output. Even just allowing a designated aheet to import/export independantly as a CSV file can allow a spreadsheet to reference different data sets.

  20. Add the ability to grab data from sensors on the phone e.g. GPS location

    There are a lot of use cases for a mobile phone or tablet in using data that basically involve collecting data in the field then analysing it on a spreadsheet once back in an office. Why not just add the ability to grab the data on the mobile versions of Excel?
