  1. Vertical writing

    I think that vertical writing is very important. I am a middle school student and i mostly use excel to graph, organize my schedules or solve math problems. For most of the time, i need to write on the y- axis and i need vertical writing. So instead i usually do all my graphing and then i save it into keynote to add the vertical writing. Please improve this. But overall, excel has helped me so much

  3. I want an easier way (in iPhone Excel) to convert an entire column of numbers-as-text to numbers.

    Desktop Excel allows me to copy columns of numeric data, formatted as text, and paste them as actual numbers. iPhone version does not appear to have such an easy way to perform this.

  4. Please make adjusting row height & column width more accessible

    It would be nice if there were buttons available to click on or when you click on the cell itself to adjust the width & height

  7. Excel for IOS needs Pivot Tables

    Missing the ability to create, update and export pivot table analyses within Excel and into MS Word and MS PowerPoint for presentations and document is a problem to correct.

    Large data files need this capability. Using a desktop or laptop is becoming less attractive when participating in meetings with clients and team members. Making a database program available would be a nice capability.

  8. Rename Tables, Ranges, Cells (Name Manager)

    I think, this is a small feature to add. Renaming Tables works with Excel Online already, but not on iPadOS. It has a big impact on the work flow, and should be easy to implement.

    If applicable, please (in a second step) add some kind of Name Manager so that not only full tables, but also custom ranges and cells can be named.

  9. List files on iPad in date vs title order

    When looking for a file in MS Excel or Office 365 on my iPad, all are listed but title and nit by last used or most recent. No ability to show all by creation or last used date.

    With regards

  19. Why are you opening one drive from excel with no security?

    Why are you opening one drive from excel with no security at all?
    If I want an excel on one drive I need to pass security and yet the excel app just accessed without - quite shocking!
