  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. Expand Drop-down Lists to Show Full Text on iPad App.

    Drop-down lists on iPad version of Excel are shown in a fixed size area. If text for each selection is larger than that area, string is cut off with three dots in the end. It would be better to have a drop-down with flexible size so that all text can be seen for each element in list.

  4. Edit source data for charts

    It would be nice if there is an easier way to add column and row headers to a chart. Currently there is no choice, unless you organize your data such that the intended headers are immediately adjacent to the data

    Thanks for the great feedback. We’ll definitely consider this in the next round of features for the iPad/iPhone. Please continue to vote on this feature idea which will increase its likelihood of getting in the product.

    This feature request is still on our backlog but there is nothing we can commit to at this time.

    Thanks,

  11. Improved Support For XLSM files

    When I open an XLSM file in Excel for iOS and save it, it disables my macros and removes my Quick Access Toolbar icons in the file in Windows. It would be great if it saves the state of the macros and the icons in the QA Toolbar, so when I open it again in Windows, i don't have to re-enable macros and re-add all the QA Toolbar icons I added for this particular file.

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  16. 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

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