  2. No option to ‘strikethrough’ text or cells

    Like the heading suggests, the option to ‘strikethrough’ text or cells is missing on excel for iPhone and iPad.

  3. Increase and Decrease INDENT

    This feature is essential for many Excel Power users as it is used for entering data under subheadings which is the only way to indicate separation in Excel. This allows them to present their spreadsheets in an appealing way.

  4. Please include Wrap text for cells

    Wrap for cells would be really useful. It used to be present but seems to have disappeared.

  5. Lock cells to protect formula

    Being able to lock cells in Excel for iPhone / iPad would be greatly appreciated. To protect formulas from being accidentally edited or deleted.

  6. Add “Engineering” display format. (e.g. 1.234E5 —> 123.4E3)

    Many scientific calculators can display value in above format.
    If Excel implements this format, I don’t have to use a calculator

  10. Excel loosing word wrap and outline formatting when mobile excel is used

    We have multiple people editing an excel spreadsheet from mobile and full excel. We have discovered on several occasions that excel looses its word wrap and cell outline formatting when the mobile app is opened. Even if a user doesn’t make any edits, we have seen cells loose these formats.

    Please help as we are trying to move away from google sheets and getting pushed hard to move back with these issues.

    There should be an option to not display a value in a cell if it is zero to reduce clutter

  13. We use office 365 on iPad Pro and cannot copy and paste a formatted table from excel into outlook. It only copies the text?!

    In office 365 on and iPad we cannot copy and paste a formatted table ie colours lines etc into outlook!
    It will only copy the words and un-formatted, we should be able to copy and paste the formatted table straight into outlook. Ive spoken to Apple and Microsoft support and they provided me a work around to screenshot or attach the whole work sheet ?! Surely we should be able to directly copy and paste the table.

  14. Text formatting

    Text formatting for portions of a cell’s text is an important part of my workflow. iOS version currently clears any of this formatting as soon as you enter a cell.

  15. Ability to select or unselect certain features

    For example, when typing a list in a cell i often find myself trying to start each line with a dash like this
    -one thing
    -another thing
    -ect.
    However, when i do this it tries to do the function of combining it with another cell, which is very annoying. To have to choice to choose what i want it to do (in the settings) would be nice.
    I would also like the option of choosing what Enter does. I would prefer it to make a new line in the cell i am currently in, rather than moving on to the…

  16. WYSWYG fonts

    When you have an app capable to install new fonts on iPad, will be great that the fonts you see are the same as the fonts you print (WYSWYG - what you see is what you get). In previous versions, this was possible. Would it be possible to fix and let Excel print all the installed fonts available?

  18. Add custom date format

    The only existing date format including the Day of Week show a the full day name e.g. Wednesday. This takes excessive space in your spreadsheet column. I would like to see the ability to have a custom format so we can use the short for e.g. Wed. So basically a format such as "Ddd dd-Mmm-yyyy". This option already exists in the Windows version.
