  1. Please add ownCloud support. It seems just about every cloud service is supported except the one we and our clients rely on.

    ownCloud support is desperately needed. Should have been there from day one. We avoid using Office apps because doing so blows up our workflows.

  2. To be able to clear Al workbooks previously open or edited

    It would be amazing if we could clear all recents from excel. There so much data there that is utterly useless after I have seen/edited the file.

    Beeing able to select all, or one by one would be a plus!

  3. Save favorite

    Hello,

    A Features which should be included is favorites. There should be a way to mark a excel file as favorite. When doing that you view a favorite quickly and easily from a section call favorite.

  4. Include among the file positions also “iCloud” because we are using the IOS version of Excel

    Due to the fact that we subscribe to the IOS version of Excel it should be normal to open file saved on iCloud while the Apple service is not included and cannot be added.

  5. I’d like the ability to create folders on an iPad, not just on OneDrive.

    I’d like the ability to create folders on an iPad, not just on OneDrive. As it stands now, files created or saved on the iPad are put in one giant list. It would be great if I could create a folder called Work and another folder called School to keep files separated for quicker location. Excel works great on my iPad! Having the ability to separate my files in their own folder would make the App even better!

  7. Zoom Level on Open Workbook on iOS

    With a Workbook on OneDrive and edited on both macOS and iOS (iPad & iPhone), opening the Workbook on iPad sets a ludicrous zoom level - far too big.

    If you open a Workbook occasionally and work on it a lot then adjusting the zoom each time it's opened is not a big deal. But if you open a workbook every day or more often and just add a few values each time then every time adjusting the zoom level becomes a real nuisance (to the point where I've given up on Excel and moved to Apple apps - which…

  9. saving excel files in other formats?????

    Please, i have an iPad "Pro" and i cannot save a file as a .csv. I cannot understand how this is not possible. This is basic functionality for any science/engineering application. Basically it means that without this, mobile Excel is not a solution i can adopt.

  10. Not to save by default when opening files

    Not to save by default when opening files As it is usual to open and perform no edit but to update the file modification date without sense as no change was made

  11. Integrate with Procore as a “place” to open and save documents

    Procore is a leading construction project management tool. It would greatly increase our teams’ ability to work with Office 365 documents if they could open AND save files back to Procore from their iOS devices.

  12. Include among the storage services iCloud

    Due to the fact that we are using Excel per iPad we should be able to access files stored on iCloud which is the default service for Apple’s users

  13. Storage usage limits for mobile app file cache/downloads

    An optional limit to the amount of storage used by the mobile apps to download recently used files. Otherwise a limit to the number of files cached in this manner based on how recently they were used or a limit on how long it keeps them on the mobile device.

    This would allow users to save space on the mobile device. Keeping only documents they expect to use easily accessible.
    Along with a keep on device setting for important files to provide users control over this functionality.

  14. Show better information in File listing on open

    I have stored wbks in iCloud as .xlsm and then found that Macros don’t work. So I stored them again as.xlsx. However, when I come to clear out unusable stuff it is impossible to identify which is which. File suffix, creation date should all be shown.
    Also when I want to save iCoud files on my iPad (so that I can always go back to my original when the local version gets messed up) it is not evident where to find my local storage - of course it is in there but under PUBLIC! That is not obvious and the…

  18. Need to work on files when I'm offline

    There are times when I need to work on files and do not have Internet connections to sign-in and be able to edit and save the file. This seems so necessary for people who are on the road, traveling, and on vacation without their Internet hookup. When I can't open and work on and save files, Office 365 is useless and I'll find an alternative. Let me work on it and then upload when I get home to replace the old one. Gove me the option to select certain files to work when I'm offline,
