  1. Formula auditing

    When I double-tap on a cell with a formula, Excel helpfully assigns different colors to the elements of the formula, and highlights the cells that are linked to the formula with the same colors. But at the same time, it also brings up the virtual keyboard obscuring half the screen, as it assumes that I want to edit the formula. In many cases, I just want to quickly audit formulas without editing them with the keyboard. Can you think of a way that allows users to audit formulas without covering the screen?

  2. Enlarge Excel worksheet tabs. The tabs are too small to scroll through with a touch screen. Also, leave more room between menu items.

    Enlarge Excel worksheet tabs. The tabs should be taller to allow scrolling through with a touch screen. Also, leave more room between menu items. Remember adult fingers need enough space to work. Larger font sizes and widening the screen are inefficient options.

  3. Have excel close and save any open worksheets before an update.

    On the last 2 updates to my iPhone, the ap called up the upgrade when I opened a worksheet. This worksheet had years of daily medical info in it. When the update came through the open spreadsheet was totally wiped clean. very bad news for me. It didn't used to do that. The update should close and save all open spreadsheets before updating.

  5. When the formula bar isn't tall enough to display everything, color-code it!

    Enter this to see what I mean:
    =TODAY()=4
    but put a likebreak before the =4, and have the formula bar one row tall so all you SEE is =TODAY().
    The cell shows FALSE. What you're looking at makes no sense! But if the Formula bar were colored, you'd know there's more to see.

  7. Allow us to orient sheets on the right.

    Orient sheets on the side and have a window where you can see all sheets at the same time.

    Hi Vishy,

    Thanks for the suggestion. It’s a little vague right now – can you elaborate on what you had in mind? Also, can you tell me if this is something you’re wanting for a phone, slate, or PC sized screen (or maybe all 3)?

    Thanks,
    John [MS XL]

  8. Add the Review Feature to unlock sheet

    Add the feature so the user can unlock a worksheet which is password protected. This could help users unlock worksheets, make some edits and lock worksheet when done editing.

  11. Colors or hatching not displaying correctly on Excel app for Android phone or from Teams app

    When using excel app for computer, all colors and hatchings are displayed correctly.

    Nevertheless, when I open the same spreadsheet from inside Teams for mobile phone, or even from inside Excel app for Android, all cells containing hatches are displayed with one single color (in this case red), no matter if it had other colors in the app. I did not test opening with an iPhone or Windows Phone. It should work perfectly with the Excel app on every operating system.

    When I open the same table from inside the Teams app, it does show the colors correctly but it…
