  1. Mouse support for iPad OS 13.4

    Now that iOS 13.4 supports the mouse, Excel for iPad should also. Mouse works perfectly in the other apps. Very frustrating in Excel.

  3. Integrate with google drive

    I belong to an organisation the uses a Google account. All our documents are stored on google drive. MS Office doesn't support Google Drive as a "place" so I can't access and edit documents on google drive from Excel for iOS. I can open a spreadsheet from the Google drive app but it opens in Excel as read only and I can't save changes back to google drive.

    Please add google drive as a "place" in MS Office apps for iOS.

  6. 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.

  7. XLS Files opened on iPad should be exportable to CSV format

    Believe it or not, some companies are attempting to standardize on Apple iPads as the business tool for their external employees. I'm working with a company that has $45Billion+ in sales; 155,000 Employees.

    I work for a technology company with $800Million in sales and 3,000 employees.

    One application would be optimally serviced by the ability to open an Excel file, with drop down lists, on an Apple iPad and once the file data is customized by the remote employee, I would need to have them save the edited file to a .CSV file to import into a webpage that has…

  9. Add Page Layout

    Please add Page Layout w/the accompanying sub-menus: insert headers/footers, fit to one page, etc. I no longer use a PC/laptop, I only use my iPad Pro w/my Office apps. It’s annoying not having the features I’m accustomed to using on Excel. If I could have chosen Printing & Formatting I would have.

  11. Ability to Print and export PDF while offline

    Microsoft online services seem to be a requirement since 2.0 and the on/off selection in settings does nothing.

    Exporting PDFs and sharing them while offline is crucial, and previous versions had no problems with this at all.

  14. Selecting Non-Adjacent Cells

    I'm not able to select non-adjacent cells in Excel on the iPad Pro. That means that I can;t selectively apply formulas or build charts with data from non-adjacent columns. It's an absurd thing not to be able to do. Under any other circumstances this would be a matter fo just hitting the Ctrl button. You all need to fix this immediately, I feel like I've been sold something non-functional.

  15. Have offline access to selected files from cloud services

    An option to have selected files from cloud services within the app (OneDrive and Dropbox hopefully). When a file is marked to be available offline, it should be downloaded, auto-synced as changes occur for it, and be available when I do not have an Internet connection. Also it should not download every time I open it. When I work on it without Internet connection, it should save changes waiting for a next connection to sync changes to the cloud.

    This user experience is very vital and essential.

  16. 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.

  17. Edit source data for charts

    It would be nice if there is an easier way to add column and row headers to a chart. Currently there is no choice, unless you organize your data such that the intended headers are immediately adjacent to the data

    Thanks for the great feedback. We’ll definitely consider this in the next round of features for the iPad/iPhone. Please continue to vote on this feature idea which will increase its likelihood of getting in the product.

    This feature request is still on our backlog but there is nothing we can commit to at this time.

    Thanks,
    Scott [MSFT]

  18. equation of linear trendline on ipad

    On a PC, I can make an XY scatterplot, and get a trendline, and get the equation and R squared value. But on an ipad, I cannot get the equation of the line. I have a lab exercise with my college students that requires them to make a scatterplot, and then use the equation of the line to predict Y values given an X value, or vice versa. Our college just purchased new ipads for all students, so I was very disappointed they cannot use their new ipads for this exercise.
