  1. Add the ability to add NOTES to Cells as well as threaded comments

    Threaded comments are the only way to add comments to cells, in the mobile version on ipad. now that they are incompatible with older versions and iPhone version, we must have the ability to add NOTES to cells to maintain compatibility.

            Insert Feature In Excel does not have a way to insert/link a Word/PDF to a cell in Excel. Office 365 needs to be more robust if it is to be a replacement version of the MS Office for IMac. Tx

              • Dont fit it!

                NOT a new idea. A huge complaint! Excel does not fully function on tablets. For example many basic features such as print preview, data sort and many others do not work. Microsoft does not disclose this to retailers and thus customers purchase tablets not knowing they will not get full functionality of Excel. I have checked with many Uk retailers and they are assured EXCEl is fully functional on tablets. Thus Microsoft are lying!

                  • Macros should run on EXCEL for iPad

                    MACROs should iPad, at least if you pay for Office 365.

                      • Ausdruck nach Autofilter

                        Ich habe eine Tabelle mit Autofilter. Beim Ausdruck soll ein Autofilter gewählt werden können - z. B. die Spalte B. Jetzt soll der Ausdruck für jeden Filtereintrag in der Spalte B erfolgen. Das spart viel Zeit. Jeden Tage drucke ich z. B. Filtereinträge aus.

                        • Open and save files on personal NAS

                          Would be great if we could add our own personal NAS to 'Places' so we are not tied to using third party cloud storage providers.

                            • Support Google Drive on Android

                              Office apps (Excel) do not support Google Drive as a place. One must download from Drive, edit in Excel, and upload in Drive. Doesn't make sense, not seamless, already supported in Windows apps when an add-on is installed. Please support.

                              • Format cell as a checkbox (TRUE, FALSE)

                                Offer a format that displays the boolean value of a cell as a checked box if TRUE, unchecked box if FALSE, grayed box if text or other nonbool.

                                Bonus: Toggle value OnClick would be intuitive.

                                Lots of uses for this. Current options are awkward for users. Yes/No dropdown is not as good as a checkbox for touch/mobile.

                                • Need ability to save pdfs with a different file name not the file name of the spreadsheet

                                  Once you initiate a save as pdf the file name appears locked. So it creates a name the same as your spreadsheet.
                                  I want to be able to select a different name at this point.
                                  At present I have to find the created pdf and rename it every time.
