  1. Excel mobile needs the cell autocomplete (predictive text option)!

    in the desktop version, if i start typing in a cell a popup list of predictions appears allowing me to select something that already exists in the column. for example the word apple in a list of fruit would be predicted for me as soon as i type 'a' . This would save me hours of work while data entering using the mobile version in the field! please please add this feature so that i dont have to write out everything over and over!

    (2016-04-05 Dan [XL]: added "autocomplete" to title

    • Goodreader file links don't work

      Goodreader is a popular file manager for iOS. For most applications you can copy and paste a Goodreader link in and when you need access to the file in Goodreader, you just need to click the external link. Neither Excel or Word seem to be able to cope with this simple Goodreader link even though the basic notes app can manage it. Please fix this as Goodreader is the only decent alternative to the lack of a centralised iOS file system.

          • Filter colums

            Please add ability to filter on "Begins with..." or "Contains..." in columns of the Excel mobile app. Extremely helpful for lookup actions in long spreadsheets.

              • Please Reverse the color orders in the color filling button

                Using an Ipadpro, when I want to fill a cell in yellow or green (standard colors) I have to go down on the choice of colors. The same if I want to erase the filling color. The no filling color should be on top, standard colors next, and finally the Themes colors, since they are more personal

                  • Don't let editing a file on iOS change the window size when file opened in OS X

                    It is frustrating to edit a file on OS X (office 2016) then edit it later on an iPhone, and then when you get back to your desk and edit on OS X, the window has been resized to a tiny iPhone screen, forcing you to resize it on the desktop.

                    I know the iPhone and iPad can see a smaller area, but don't save the "window size" with the file when it is saved on iOS. The window size from the desktop should be persistent.

                    • Save space with a Microsoft Office app?

                      I've noticed that each of the apps for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint are quite large. They are also independent.

                      I'm not sure if this would lead to any improvement, but perhaps we could have a Microsoft Office app. Then get the individual components of Microsoft Office through in-app downloads. This way, any features that are common between the components can now be shared in this single app, which should save space.

                            • Have offline access to selected files from cloud services

                              An option to have selected files from cloud services within the app (OneDrive and Dropbox hopefully). When a file is marked to be available offline, it should be downloaded, auto-synced as changes occur for it, and be available when I do not have an Internet connection. Also it should not download every time I open it. When I work on it without Internet connection, it should save changes waiting for a next connection to sync changes to the cloud.

                              This user experience is very vital and essential.

                                It will be efficient for end users to switch from Excel App to Excel Online when they want to edit the document > and not to have the error message advising to subscribe E3 !

                                • Add support for opening of files from local network

                                  Excel for android can not open files from local network natively. You need to use a third party app to find and open your files.

                                  Many organisations have a policy not to allow storage of files on cloud services. Excel for android is a pain to use in these environments where all files must be stored on network drives.

                                  Please fix this for an improved user experience. Thanks, Joachim

                                      • Cell Tab

                                        Enable the tab and enter keys to go to next unlocked cell, currently it will go to next cell even if locked for editing and show a warning.

                                        • Show file name in worksheet, without path name - =FILENAME(). Cell("filename") gives path etc. want only filename

                                          Have alternative to the Cell("filename") so that only the file name shows in the cell, ie without lengthy path name etc.
