  1. OCR cell input

    Expose a quick & ready method to begin inputting text into current active cell from an OCR scan from the camera. There would ideally be a way to optionally have the scan jump to the next column, next row, or no jump, after confirming good read.

    An example scenario: you have been tasked with taking inventory of all the computers in your office, including serial numbers. You create a new spreadsheet on your mobile device. Click in the first row and make a "header" row with labels "office number", "serial number", "item type" and "model number". Next, you walk up…

  4. Data Refresh of external data links (stock quotes) in iPhone Excel app.

    Data Refresh of external data links (stock quotes) in iPhone Excel app.

    When on the windows laptop, under the data tab, the "Refresh All" button works great. It would be very handy if we had the same functionality on our mobile devices.

  8. Paste Special across different sheets

    On Excel on iPad, if you try to copy formulas, for example, from one sheet, and open another sheet in a different file on the Excel app, it won't give the full paste special options e.g. formulas, formats, values. It only displays "picture". Paste special works fine within the same sheet, just not across sheets.

  11. Csv

    Simply build in support for opening CVS files. A number of websites that I use to pull down reports and data only export delimited files. I can only open them in Apple Numbers to mixed results. This should absolutely be functionality that the IOS app should take ownership of.

  14. Input/output data

    Allow data to be input or output. Even just allowing a designated aheet to import/export independantly as a CSV file can allow a spreadsheet to reference different data sets.

  16. Link to External Data

    Please add feature to allow a link from one workbook to data in another workbook. The feature needs to enable update of the linked data. This feature already exists in Excel 2016 and 2013.

  20. Sheets Data Refresh

    Bardzo proszę, dodajcie możliwość odświeżania danych z plików zewnętrznych. Brakuje tej opcji najbardziej, zwłaszcza gdy pracuje się w zespole.
