  1. Data Validation in Excel Android

    Good afternoon! We would like the Data Validation Tool to be available. I miss this tool in Excel, so I have to use other means and other applications to do my tasks. It would be great to make data validation available.

  3. 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…

    Interesting idea. Thanks for the feedback. We’ll definitely consider this in our next round of planning. In the mean time, please continue to vote on this feature idea.

    Thanks,

  4. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  15. 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. 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

  18. Please include data validation

    The data tab is empty - this app would be amazing if it also had data validation.

  19. Support Google Drive on Android

    Office apps (Excel) do not support Google Drive as a place. One must download from Drive, edit in Excel, and upload in Drive. Doesn't make sense, not seamless, already supported in Windows apps when an add-on is installed. Please support.

  20. It would be nice if there would be a split screen for the new ipad OS. So i can work with 2 worksheets at the same time.

    A split screen feature for the new ipadOS would be great. This will give users the chance to work on 2 separate files/worksheets at the same time, to edit, copy, paste, or refer to one file to another.
