  3. Add Page Layout

    Please add Page Layout w/the accompanying sub-menus: insert headers/footers, fit to one page, etc. I no longer use a PC/laptop, I only use my iPad Pro w/my Office apps. It’s annoying not having the features I’m accustomed to using on Excel. If I could have chosen Printing & Formatting I would have.

  5. Please include Wrap text for cells

    Wrap for cells would be really useful. It used to be present but seems to have disappeared.

  7. Sheet protection

    Please add the ability to protect and unprotect work sheets in excel iOS.

    I regularly use excel on Mac and lock my cells for security and to avoid accidental input. But then I can’t unprotect the sheet from my iOS devices to edit it on the go. Frustrating and disappointing as I have seen this suggestion frequently pop up.

  8. Profile tab, switch from one account to another as ez as outlook!

    I’ll tell you in 1 word. Most people with multiple email accounts, need the same amount of ez access to save to the particular account. So it’s not just a suggestion, it’s a need & a must!

    Currently if I have a attachment in outlook, or even in the app it self, I have to sign out to be able to save to a different account, otherwise all my attachments are saved to 1 Microsoft account, when it’s really associated with the other email & Microsoft account.

    Multiple email accounts are usually created for different tasks at hand, and the…

  12. Lock cells to protect formula

    Being able to lock cells in Excel for iPhone / iPad would be greatly appreciated. To protect formulas from being accidentally edited or deleted.

  16. WE NEED THE ADVANCED FEATURES!

    NO PIVOT TABLES, NO CONDITIONAL FORMATS, NO DROPDOWN LISTS... ANYTHING EVEN A LITTLE BIT ADVANCED FROM THE ORIGINAL EXCEL THIS APP LACKS IT.

    DO YOU REALIZE HOW ADVANCED AND POWERFUL ARE MOBILE DEVICES NOWADAYS????

    I GIVE IT THE FIRST YEAR, IF YOU GUYS DON’T IMPLEMENT THESE FEATURES TO THE MOBILE APP I’LL DROP IT AT ONCE.

  17. An "All Update" button in the Android Excel App. ( Developer: officean@microsoft.com ) is strictly required.

    An "All Update" button in the Android Excel App. ( Developer: officean@microsoft.com ) is strictly required.
    This would update the entire Excel spreadsheet. This will update stock prices. Otherwise the 365 feature "Shares" "Geography" in the register DATA is not usable for Smartphones.

    So the mobile users can determine the exact tables they can make for letter size or legal size or A4 size without going on print set up just to view the size they made

  19. Ensure Excel and Word can open embedded word documents

    Many businesses are moving to iPads instead of laptops. Most meeting agendas that are sent out tend to have embedded documents linking to the agenda points. Currently it is impossible to open embedded documents on word for iPad, which renders iPads useless in these meetings. Please ensure that this is available in the next version of Word for iPad
