  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.

  2. Filtering Excel Sheet on iPad

    Our company has a live Excel document on an internal Sharepoint site on the cloud. Several people have access to it and all of us can edit and update it as needed. Some of us are using desktop computers and some of us are using iPads.

    I already know how to do this on the desktop but, my question is:

    On the iPad, would like to make a way to….


    1. Filter the excel sheet for personal viewing (“Just see mine”) without affecting everyone else?


    2. Still edit and update the excel document while it is filtered for personal viewing?

  3. Full desktop suite for iPad

    Full desktop version for iPadOS.

    I currently use IPad to work without the need for a pc, but there are many Excel functions that i need in my day-to-day life such as formatting, or configuring Pages for printing, which are excluded for iPadOS, and paying an office 365 subscription should include all functions.

  8. Leiste um Bearbeitung zu aktivieren

    Wenn ich eine Excel Datei per email zugesendet beiomme und ich diese bearbeiten möchte, muss ich zuerst die Bearbeitung aktivieren, wenn diese datei geschützt ist. Um die Bearbeitung zu aktivieren wäre es schön wenn es einen offensichtlichen knopf gibt, der ganz oben platziert wird.

  11. Vertical writing

    I think that vertical writing is very important. I am a middle school student and i mostly use excel to graph, organize my schedules or solve math problems. For most of the time, i need to write on the y- axis and i need vertical writing. So instead i usually do all my graphing and then i save it into keynote to add the vertical writing. Please improve this. But overall, excel has helped me so much

  12. Frozen Excel more often

    Since I bought the IPhone 12 Pro Max, whenever I open the Excel to edit for my business, it has been frozen frequently so that I have to turn off the IPhone to reset it. The Excel ran very smoothly on IPhone 6 Plus and 8.

  13. Please make adjusting row height & column width more accessible

    It would be nice if there were buttons available to click on or when you click on the cell itself to adjust the width & height

  15. Do away with READ ONLY FILES

    When I move from my primary computer to my Surface I can only open my files as "read only" and have to change file names or locations to save changes. As a result I have 20 to 30 Read Only files all over my computer all of the same file. How DO I REMOVE THE READ ONLY from files I use every day????

  16. Select Multiple Non-contiguous Cells on iOS

    Currently it does not appear possible to select multiple non-contiguous cells. Feature parity is requested for those using an accessory keyboard with their mobile device.

  18. Have local NAS/network drive support!

    Online storage support like OneDrive is great but how about local NAS/Network drive support through Excel (iOS) so that a third party apps aren’t needed?

  19. Repair broken Date Input in Card View

    If I enter a date in the card view, the date isn't saved correctly. It's not possible to work with the entered dates on the desktop office, even though ot seems correct for mobile.

    Many people (all?) seem to have this problem since the first introduction of the cards view.
