    default fill color.

    Pressing the fill color should fill the cell according to the last color used just like on Windows. On IOS it is necessary each time to choose the desired color and the standard colors are at the bottom, not practical

  6. We need a way to change toolbars in Office 365 On an iPad!!!

    Can you please add functionality to Office 365 that enables the user to change items on the ribbon?!

    The lack of this capability is hugely disappointing and counterproductive.

    Thank you!

  7. Formatting as currency

    When formatting a number as currency, we have to select desired symbol each and every time by scrolling through the huge list of currency symbols. Please add recently used symbols to the top of the list. Thank you.

  8. Vertical Tex

    Vertical Tex option in Excel IOS is obbligatory. Needs immediate upgrade. Embarrasing for Microsoft that Excel for iPad is still elementary

  10. Allow user to "Format Picture" so that images can be filtered and "move and size with cells" just like the desktop version

    I was doing an inventory list with images inserted in the cells on my Android tablet (Samsung Galaxy Tab S4) using Microsoft 365 Android Excel. When I filtered a category on my list, the images just overlapped each other making it a mess unlike the desktop version where I can format the images so that they "move and size with cells". It will be great if the Android Excel has access to similar functions/format as the desktop's version. This will really add value and make using Android Excel a seamless experience. Thanks.

  12. Form Controls on iOS

    When are Form Controls going to be available on iOS devices? The number 1 tablet on the market and Form Controls don't work on it. This is 2018, what is your excuse for this not working?

  14. vertical text - (edit cell -,for,at cell - rotate text)

    The ability to rotate text in a cell to varying degrees (at least 90) which is available in pc excel via edit cells - format -,rotate text....should be included ASAP. This feature used primarily in the header cells of a column where the filtered cells would be of limited width (I.e. 1 digit...or an “X”) allowing greatly increased utilization of limited viewing real estate.

    Ironically, Google Sheets has even included this feature at this point (formulas were once required)...despite the app being barren in terms of features compared to xls in general.

    Please add this staple functionality.

  16. Why do I have to continually pick a color to fill a cell with?

    On the desktop version, once you pick a color for cell filling, it retains that color until you change it. Why do we have to continually pick the color on the iPad version instead of it retaining and a drop-down being available to change it (similar to Windows)?

  17. Need FORMAT-to-PRINT Features (e.g.: Print to PDF to share as standalone or embed into larger visual or old-fashioned Printing)

    FORMAT-to-PRINT Features to enhance both DIGITAL spreadsheet viewing (working in a document ourselves, embedding it into a larger file/other programs, presentations, etc) and also to allow HARD-COPY (Yes, the tree-killing type of printing, only when necessary). These help create better documents and easier sharing spreadsheet work in Excel or as a PDF, etc... Formatting items like these below make interpretation easy and enhances file sharing so that the senders and receivers can see the framework of the document, allowing them to spend less time figuring out what they are looking at, how long it is, what page they are on,…

  18. vertical text - (edit cell -,for,at cell - rotate text)

    Add standard excel feature ( edit cell - format - rotate text ) to any degree, or at a minimum 90 degrees or multiples of 45 degrees. This feature is becoming ubiquitous, even finding inclusion in functionally inferior products (I.e. google sheets)..due to its extreme usefulness in formatting (column headers to enable thin columns where filtered cells contain 1/few characters). This allows for maximization of coveted screen real-estate...which is of even greater premium in a mobile application where users have but one, smaller, screen with which to analyze data.

  19. Add user-defined text formatting

    Presently, I can find pre-defined text formats only.
    Please add the capability to create and edit user-defined text formats.

  20. In-cell dropdown

    It will be extremely useful to be able to create in-cell dropdown menu on the MS excel app on ipad. I have to go back to my laptop computer everytime I do this and it is not nice
