  2. Make it stop re-inserting rows

    You can improve Excel for Android by making it stop re-inserting rows after they've been deleted. This happens all the time and it creates an awful nuisance when trying to navigate a small spreadsheet.

  4. Virtual trackpad does not work well

    When you in a text box in Excel with the on-screen keyboard and iOS 9+, you should be able to use the virtual trackpad to move the cursor around the text box (pressing and holding the keyboard with two fingers). This works well in all iOS first-party apps and MS Word.

    However in Excel there are three problems:
    - once you double tap a text box to edit the text box and press the keyboard with two fingers, the cursor jumps to another place. This should not happen.
    - you cannot move the cursor vertically, the cursor stays on the…

  10. Excel should not create "Email attachments" onedrive folder

    Why have Office for iOS apps just started creating the "Email attachments" folder in onedrive? I do not use this folder and because on Windows I have my onedrive mapped as "My Documents" and have it appearing on the Windows bar I now cannot see all the folders I want to access on the Windows bar.

    If I delete the folder in Windows or in the onedrive app on iOS, it reappears as soon as I open an office app on iOS. I am using a 4th gen iPad with up to date iOS and apps.

  11. App corrupts Excel files, preventing opening on other normally compatible software

    Opening, or in the case of password-protected files merely trying to open, an XLSX file in Excel for Android modifies the file. Permission is not requested and autosave is disabled, but file size is increased by roughly 30 % and the file then appears as corrupted to desktop Excel and other software such as Google Sheets.

    Sample files, both original and corrupted (-and), enclosed. Password is "password".

  13. XLT Files Don't Appear in Cloud Browsers

    XLT and files with related extensions (like XLTX) don't appear in the cloud service browsers like Egnyte and Box, which is very frustrating. Is there an official way of getting to and opening these files?

  17. Add the ability to grab data from sensors on the phone e.g. GPS location

    There are a lot of use cases for a mobile phone or tablet in using data that basically involve collecting data in the field then analysing it on a spreadsheet once back in an office. Why not just add the ability to grab the data on the mobile versions of Excel?

  18. Merge Across option.

    Please provide the "Merge Across" option under edits on our iPads because it doesn't even exist. It exists in Windows PC, but some how this option is not available in our iPads. Basically the Merge Across option lets you merge two or more tabs across.

  19. A button that switches to excel desktop

    Should be a button that switches to excel desktop when you need a feature that's in desktop version.

    Too much of a pain to close the mobile app, open desktop excel, find the file .....
