  2. set print area

    If you can add a feature that allows users to set the print area for tablet/phone users (Windows 10 Mobile, to be more specific), it would be a boon to mobile workers. Especially for Office 365 subscribers.

  3. Input/output data

    Allow data to be input or output. Even just allowing a designated aheet to import/export independantly as a CSV file can allow a spreadsheet to reference different data sets.

  10. Format keyboard appropriately

    On mobile devices the keyboard presented should be that pertaining to the format of the field being completed. That is if you are entering data in a field formatted as numeric you should be presented with a numeric keyboard and not the last keyboard used as happens at present. This is done by other apps like google sheets so I cannot see why it can't be done in excel

  14. Extend the Free Office App to include the new 10.5" iPad Pro

    Apple has just released the new iPad Pro 2, and the smaller version has increased in size from 9.7" to 10.5". This puts the smaller iPad Pro into the size that requires an Office 365 subscription. Since it is still the "smaller" version of the Pro, it would be nice it it was still eligible for the free versions.

  15. Fix the bug in "Draw" when it's not available when columns are frozen

    One of the most exciting things about draw for Excel is the possibilities of using excel in the field. I'm a disaster relief worker, and I use an excel spreadsheet doing field inspections on a Surface Pro. It kills the usefulness of the spreadsheet when I can't freeze the left column and top three rows

  17. Please add VISUAL PREVIEW of excel SHEET or TABS

    Please add a PHOTO- THUMBNAIL and SOME TEXTS for PREVIEW of EACH excell sheets or tabs within same excell file.

    It will make easier to find or locate and recall which content was hidden in which SHEET/TAB and also will help to REMEMBER easily the content.

    It will also reduce the chance of overlook an important sheet in an excel file.

  18. Slider or Scroll Bar via Data Validation

    I would like to see a slider or scroll bar become an in-cell data validation option (just as I'd like to see a date picker for dates and a new checkbox option).

    This feature could be integrated into the "Whole number" validation criteria with a simple checkbox like "Show scroll bar".

    When you double-click or double-tap the cell to edit the value, the scrollbar could appear immediately below or above the cell, as shown in the attached image. (For this image, I used a form field scroll bar, but I think it gets the point across).

    I'd like to see…

  19. Keyboard Shortcut to Edit Active Cell (like F2)

    Excel for iPad needs a hardware keyboard shortcut to "Edit the active cell and put the insertion point at the end of its contents." This is the F2 function in Excel for PC. This shortcut is very important for people who rely on the arrow keys to navigate spreadsheets.

  20. Preview scaling

    I use MS Excel on my iPhone (in addition to my normal desktop/laptop usage). It is very annoying that there is apparently no way to scale the preview, which in my particular case is teeny weeny!
