  1. Excel iOS: auto-saves files despite having switched off auto-save

    Please see https://answers.microsoft.com/thread/7768863c-337c-49a3-b207-1a9635510bad for a serious bug first reported by the OP over 4 months ago.

    If auto-save is switched off (which I think it should be by default, but that's another matter) and I discard changes when exiting a file, the file timestamp still changes. This then spreads to other devices seeing the file on OneDrive. So if I just want to check something in a file from several years ago it suddenly looks like I've recently edited the file! This bug of course is not present in Windows.

  2. iPad Pro 9.7 Smart Keyboard problem

    Has anyone else had a problem with the iPad Pro 9.7, Excel and the Smart Keyboard? Every time you type into a cell, the software keyboard pops up momentarily before promptly disappearing - like Excel makes the cell editable, displays the iPad keyboard, then realises the Smart Keyboard is attached, and then removes the iPad keyboard.
    To reproduce:
    - Type something into any cell
    - Press return that then moves the focus onto the cell below
    - Start typing something, and the software keyboard will pop up, before disappearing again

    This bug can be reproduced on the iPads at the…

  3. Improve/Update microphone dictation mode for iPad with iOS12.

    I’ve been using the microphone for dictation (data entry) on the app for several months. The app closes on iPad with iOS 12 (I just updated my device) while trying to still use it. Reinstalling the app nor resetting the iPad doesn’t work.

  4. Please fix file duplication

    When I duplicate a file and tell it to “Save Copy Only”, the changes are also saved in the original file. I then have to open the original file, close it, tell it to “Discard Changes”, and open it again to get back my original file.

    When working with a file on my iPad, this is an annoyance. When working with a shared file on OneDrive, this leads to severe data integrity issues.

    Please fix!

  7. Format keyboard appropriately

    On mobile devices the keyboard presented should be that pertaining to the format of the field being completed. That is if you are entering data in a field formatted as numeric you should be presented with a numeric keyboard and not the last keyboard used as happens at present. This is done by other apps like google sheets so I cannot see why it can't be done in excel

  9. V2.0 autocomplete really breaks barcode scanning-- need option to turn off.

    V2.0 autocomplete is 'faster' -- so it causes a HUGE issue for barcode scanning. This shouldn't have been a surprise to development since it started to an issue posted here in 2016... but now V2.0 makes it faster and more of an issue.... PLEASE give us the option to turn it off in iOS or option to install old version until fixed. This totally broke our workflow and there is no way to fix it ourselves. We have the option to disable autocomplete on the desktop version, but those properties don't stay with the file, so opening on OneDrive via…
