  1. Take picture and insert/link into sheet on the fly

    I was once asked to make/find the following app: allow a person to input data and have calculated results appear instantly AND be able to easily take pictures and link them to the data on the fly. I never made/found such an app. Fortunately, Excel for the iPhone satisfies the first condition.

    The person using the app is checking equipment, so they enter data and take a picture and move on to the next equipment. It is impractical to import all of the pictures afterwards, since they all have similar default names, so you have to check each picture for…

  4. Please allow me to switch off dark mode

    I would like to turn on or off dark mode in excel separately from system settings so that I can have dark mode turned on for iOS but not for excel. Or vice versa.

  5. Add more editing features to graphics

    In order to make Excel for mobile a decent alternative to the desktop version, some "basic" but necessary features should be added very soon, such as:
    + the ability to edit data series linked to an existing graphic,
    + the ability to add/remove data series to an existing graphic,
    + much more editable properties for graphic elements (color, line thickness, size....)

    Well, the mobile edition should be much more than a "super viewer".

  6. Modern Excel charts also available for IOS

    It would be good to have modern charts also available in Excel for Ipad: Waterfall, Sunburst, treemap... Currently they are available for Windows, MacOS, Android but not on IOS. Thanks.

  7. EXCEL - Pls reinstate access to 'Shapes' on the Ribbon

    Prior to recent update I had access to SHAPES on the Ribbon. As of today, 2/9/2020 this feature is grayed out/inactive. I've searched on HELP for assist, it goes through the simple steps on how to access - those steps which I am VERY familiar with having used Excel for over 20 yrs. Plainly it is 'INACTIVE'. Please reinstate features of the previous Ribbon as it was prior to the last update (on/about February 1, 2020) to bring my project. to a close.

    Thank you.

  9. Be able to select non-consecutive cells and columns

    When you’re using a computer and you need to graph or use functions, you can select cells and columns in different parts of the screen but in the iPad you can only select consecutive information. It’s annoying and make you waste time.

  12. Rainbow Color Theme

    We all learned 'ROY-G-BIV' in grade school to remember the colors of the rainbow. How about the same as a color theme for Excel (and other office apps for that matter)? Perhaps with an option for a 'darker' yellow?
