  1. Excel iPad Pro modify data sources for charts

    Since the iPad Pro is intended to be used professionally, i am missing the ability to modify data sources for charts. I need full desktop functionality otherwise excel for iOS is absolutely useless for me

  2. Dynamic chart/ grapgh/ visualisation titles in Excel

    Allow ability to concatenate cell values to dynamic chart titles (I.e. allow the facility to show chart title getting values from multiple cells) Presently Excel allows dynamic chart titles to take from a single cell, not multiples.If dynamic chart titles can be done by concatenating multiple cell values, it's more efficient and less error prone specially with complex visualisation/ presentations.

  3. Autofit chart area in chart sheet

    When viewing a chart in a chart sheet on my iPhone, I have to rotate my iPhone in landscape mode, then in portrait mode for the chart to show in its entirety. And even when doing so, the chart area doesn’t use the available space in portrait and landscape modes. My ask is then to always autofit charts in chart sheets to use the maximize available space. Thanks!

  6. X and Y manual values for scaling on graphs and charts

    I have hit an inpasse whilst working on a document of which requires a graph. A brief description of my data is as follows. I am creating a comparison chart gauging residential broadband speeds in comparison to the speed the clients are paying for, the minimum access speed for their line and Ofcom's minimum speed regulations. Residential broadband speeds for fibre are currently offered generally in 38Mbps and 76Mbps packages. My data doesnt go up that high, however for a visual effect, I require to change the scale to the maximum value of the Y axis is 76 and the…

  7. Selecting Non-Adjacent Cells

    I'm not able to select non-adjacent cells in Excel on the iPad Pro. That means that I can;t selectively apply formulas or build charts with data from non-adjacent columns. It's an absurd thing not to be able to do. Under any other circumstances this would be a matter fo just hitting the Ctrl button. You all need to fix this immediately, I feel like I've been sold something non-functional.

  9. Add equation for trend line and r-squared

    Hi, I need to utilise this information from my data in excel, without this functionality I cannot do the work that I need and it makes using excel on iOS useless. Excel on my iPad is great, and I would be able to use it fully however this is very limiting. I need to use the desktop version for this functionality.

  10. equation of linear trendline on ipad

    On a PC, I can make an XY scatterplot, and get a trendline, and get the equation and R squared value. But on an ipad, I cannot get the equation of the line. I have a lab exercise with my college students that requires them to make a scatterplot, and then use the equation of the line to predict Y values given an X value, or vice versa. Our college just purchased new ipads for all students, so I was very disappointed they cannot use their new ipads for this exercise.

  12. Add ability to show/hide and move equation and r-squared value as elements for linear trendline

    Currently the only way to see the equation and r-squared value for a linear trendline is to use a quick layout. If you do that, you can not hide either the equation or the R-squared, and more importantly, you can not move it around on the chart so that it doesn't overlap other elements. Also, I'd prefer to see enabling the equation and R-squared as part of the Elements option as opposed to that being kind of hidden under layouts.

  13. Add ability to add polynomial (or at least quadratic) trendline via elements for a scatter plot

    Scatter plots for Scientific data measured by students often fit a parabola shaped trendline, i.e. a polynomial trendline with an order of 2. If supporting a polynomial trendline like desktop Excel is too computationally intensive, how about at least supporting a quadratic trendline (i.e. polynomial or order 2) inlcuidng the ability to show the equation and r-squared value. This would allow students to use iPad Excel to make predictions from data analysis done with the iPad.

  14. Specific colours for charts

    Charts currently only allow selection of colour groups which rarely match the message I need to convey. I need to be able to select the display colour of individual data series in charts (bars, sectors or lines) and sometimes even individual parts of data series.

  15. Edit source data for charts

    It would be nice if there is an easier way to add column and row headers to a chart. Currently there is no choice, unless you organize your data such that the intended headers are immediately adjacent to the data

    Thanks for the great feedback. We’ll definitely consider this in the next round of features for the iPad/iPhone. Please continue to vote on this feature idea which will increase its likelihood of getting in the product.

    1/26/17
    This feature request is still on our backlog but there is nothing we can commit to at this time.

    Thanks,
    Scott [MSFT]

  17. Adding multiple series to a single scatter plot

    I have to use scatter plots for many labs for college and that means that there are multiple test per experiment resulting in multiple tables per experiment. These multiple tables need to be added into a single scatter plot as different series.

  18. Need ability to edit data in charts

    You can create charts in Excel, and use sliders to include more series, but it only works if all data points are inside a table.

    If data series are in different parts of a sheet, Excel for iOS cannot edit the source data to pick the right data.

    Please add this feature.

  20. Scatter plot selects wrong data for display, need to manually specify range for x,y data

    Need ability to manually edit or specify data ranges for scatter plots. Currently is automatically determined from initial range selection during chart creation, and this is frequently incorrect.
