  1. App Freeze IOS

    The newest version release July 10, 2017 has major user issues.
    First I was experiencing saving errors at random times. The ipads have internet on them and I figure it was because it lost communication to server it gave a error message of conflicted copy of workbook and need to save copy to continue. That still is a issue.

    Second: Cant hide tabs in workbook after July 10, 2017 update. When I attempt to hide tabs within a workbook the app freezes for about a minute then closes down. Once I reopen the app then it opens but any data…

  2. 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.

  5. Add Dark Themes to Excel for Android

    I use excel to record my temperature when I wake up every morning and having a blindingly bright screen flash in my face in a dark room is very painful. We already have dark themes for the computer versions, why not add them to the android versions too?

  6. Dual-color cell fill

    The iPad version of Excel only allows for a single color cell fill, unlike the PC version which allows dual-colors with various affects. A dual-color cell fill (or at least display from a dual-color cell PC file) would be helpful.

  7. graphing - see / modify data series

    That I know of, there's no way to create a graph and then edit the data series afterwards. Clearly there are multiple data series created in some charts but I don't see a way to view / edit them without a lot of tedious dragging control handles around in the spreadsheet. It would be so much better to be able to have a dialog box pop up and hand edit the data series.

  9. Customizable toolbars...or at least a customizable ribbon

    The ability to create custom toolbars of any size or orientation, and position them on the screen in a way that best fits the workflow was a brilliant feature that was killed by the ribbon. If Microsoft won't bring back custom toolbars, then at the very least the ribbon should be customizable.

    Please add the feature to Excel for Android. This is the ability to create custom number (cell) format as it is in Windows. I need numbers to add units of quantity. Pre-defined is only currency unit on Android. I am adding "m²", "kg" and the like. Thank you.

  12. Blattschutz aufheben

    Ich habe das Problem, dass an verschiedenen Geräten der Blattschutz einer Exceldatei nicht aufgehoben werden kann.
    Bei der Excelversion handelt es sich um die Version 1.0.1 (16.0.8229.2048). Auf den Smartphones ist Android Version 6.0.1 installiert und es handelt sich um mehrere Smartphones von Samsung.
    Der Chache etc, wurden bei den Geräten schon gelöscht, Excel wurde zurück gesetzt. Es sind Geräte, bei denen sich die Datei früher öffnen ließ, und auch komplett neue Geräte.

    Der Button für das Aufheben der Fensterfixierung ist nicht aktiv.

    Wer hat eine Lösung für mich?

  13. Make file name fields longer

    Use all of the available space to display file names in "Open" view. See attached screenshot. There is twice as much room available as is currently being used for the file name.

  14. Allow more flexibility with charts, such as modifying the axis scales (min, max,units, etc.)

    The graph may be totally useless, as the axis start at x=0 and y=0 in a XY graph (for example, when data becomes a tight group).

    Hello,
    The excel application does not open the books on the ipad, it writes "old graphic SmartArt". Previously, these books were opened and edited on the same iPad. How to open them ?!
    Thank you.

  17. Slider or Scroll Bar via Data Validation

    I would like to see a slider or scroll bar become an in-cell data validation option (just as I'd like to see a date picker for dates and a new checkbox option).

    This feature could be integrated into the "Whole number" validation criteria with a simple checkbox like "Show scroll bar".

    When you double-click or double-tap the cell to edit the value, the scrollbar could appear immediately below or above the cell, as shown in the attached image. (For this image, I used a form field scroll bar, but I think it gets the point across).

    I'd like to see…

  18. Wireless Mouse support within IOS Office (as Citrix did with the X1 Mouse)

    Apples lacking native support for mice limits us with IOS Office.

    Please consider mouse support directly within IOS Office. Maybe a partnership with Citrix to add support for the X1 Mouse?

    (Link to show Citrix X1 Mouse) http://store.citrix.com/store/citrix/en_US/pd/ThemeID.28169600/productID.317779200)

  19. V2.0 autocomplete really breaks barcode scanning-- need option to turn off.

    V2.0 autocomplete is 'faster' -- so it causes a HUGE issue for barcode scanning. This shouldn't have been a surprise to development since it started to an issue posted here in 2016... but now V2.0 makes it faster and more of an issue.... PLEASE give us the option to turn it off in iOS or option to install old version until fixed. This totally broke our workflow and there is no way to fix it ourselves. We have the option to disable autocomplete on the desktop version, but those properties don't stay with the file, so opening on OneDrive via…

  20. 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.
