  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Expand Drop-down Lists to Show Full Text on iPad App.

    Drop-down lists on iPad version of Excel are shown in a fixed size area. If text for each selection is larger than that area, string is cut off with three dots in the end. It would be better to have a drop-down with flexible size so that all text can be seen for each element in list.

  6. Add Header and Footer functionality

    Currently Headers and footers cannot be applied to excel work books. This is a feature my client would like to have available on the mobile application.

  8. 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.

  12. Ability to open any file, even if not editable

    I have some files that have macros in them that I would like to be able to view without running the macros.
    It would be even better if I could add data to them and not break the macro portion so when I open later in a desktop version I can run the macros on the new data.

  15. Increase functionality in iPad app

    Many of us don't use a laptop, but only use iPad for our excel and other office 365 products. I want to be able to customize my ribbons, change my theme colors, develop macros. I want to do all the things that I used to be able to do when my macbook was working! I am paying just the same as everyone else and it's very frustrating to want to do something that I used to be able to do, and my hands are tied!!! Furthermore, I don't even know what I am not able to do on iPad excel…

  17. Touch ID support for opening files

    Request support for Touch ID in Excel iOS.

    Touch ID works in OneDrive however when I want to open a file in Excel I need to login in with my password.

    Touch ID support would be a very nice feature.

  18. Enabling copying sheets from one one workbook to another with proper functionality

    At the moment when you copy paste a sheet from workbook to another all the formuale are lost.

    This is a big weekness compared to working within a windows environment. It effectively means that workbooks cannot be combined.

    For example, if I have a standardised financial analysis worksheet that I want to add to a work book containing a financial model I would have to re-create the formulae each time.
