  2. Teach sales and tech staff which office 365 versions needed for all functions to work on iPad Pro 10.5 upwards

    Just spent over 2 hours online with both tech agents and sales agents neither of which could suggest which exact version of office 365 subscription would install full app version capabilities of iPad Pro 10.5.
    Insert data from picture feature being promoted since May 2019 would be good if it could be installed. Or your staff understood your software or hardware links. Instead of up selling a feature to an interested company they now believe it is more Microsoft vapourware rather than a real improvement for their situations

  4. Zoom Level on Open Workbook on iOS

    With a Workbook on OneDrive and edited on both macOS and iOS (iPad & iPhone), opening the Workbook on iPad sets a ludicrous zoom level - far too big.

    If you open a Workbook occasionally and work on it a lot then adjusting the zoom each time it's opened is not a big deal. But if you open a workbook every day or more often and just add a few values each time then every time adjusting the zoom level becomes a real nuisance (to the point where I've given up on Excel and moved to Apple apps - which…

  5. Syncronicity

    I create an interactive report from pivot table on my laptop. I saved it in One Drive and open the file by Excel App on my iPad. However, I cannot see my report correctly.

  8. Fix Threaded comments, so they are compatible with older versions Excel

    Since mobile version update to v2.21, if I insert a cell comment in the iPad version of Excel, it now generates a threaded comment, which is incompatible with older versions Excel, even gives the error on the iPhone Suggestion to use cell notes (as apposed to comment) does not work as you cannot do that in these mobile versions. see attached screen shot for error on iphone

  9. Add Copy and Cut shortcuts to keyboard on iPad

    Having Undo and Redo shortcuts on both the title bar and keyboard is redundant. Replace these on the keyboard to maximize screen real estate and improve editing efficiency.

  13. Could you add a maths calculator

    So something that makes it easier to calculate insurance costs instead of having to go in and out of the app itself

  16. Freeze Formulas

    This idea really belongs to the PC version, but it is made necessary by capacity limitations in the mobile app.
    I leave lots of complex formulas around, rather than replacing them with values, because I am thus able to retroactively implement improvements!
    My idea would be to block old data from recalculation, thus avoiding processor load but allowing them to be reactivated should changes be desirable.

  17. 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!

  18. 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.

  19. Graphic Representation

    Office on iPhone is an excellent application and of great use. Often however, when working on small mobiles, it is not readily clear what files are on my mobile vs. cloud and how to better organize them. I see a numbers of old dates for the same file names. A descriptive (graphic) presentation also showing duplication may help. Same image can be managed from iPhone or laptop.
