      I would like to refresh the data linked to an external data source. This has been mentioned on the microsoft forum but I see no uservoice request just yet.

        • Allow some worksheet cells to be unprotected on a protected worksheet

          Currently in windows excel on my laptop, I can create an excel worksheet that is protected and also select specific worksheet cells that are unprotected for editing. When I access this excel worksheet on my android, the entire worksheet is protected, however the cells that were unprotected during creation remain protected. I am trying to provide a worksheet that has several columns that should not be edited with 2 columns that can be edited during data entry.

          • Data Validation in Excel Android

            Good afternoon! We would like the Data Validation Tool to be available. I miss this tool in Excel, so I have to use other means and other applications to do my tasks. It would be great to make data validation available.

              • Can a page up/page down feature on the Excel App for my Android phone be created? Or a faster way to scroll down, rather than swiping.

                I'm trying to navigate through a few thousand line items and swiping up or down takes a very long time(20-40 swipes) to move from one section back to the beginning or end of my data.

                  • Nnamed ranges

                    I'd like to be able to define and edit named ranges like I can on the desktop version. It makes calculations on the go much quicker and easier.

                          • Auto refresh external data

                            I have created a very useful spreadsheet that auto-updates several cells from external data. Works perfectly on computer.

                            Can't see how to make it work on the Android version which makes this particular sheet useless in the field.
                            Am I missing something? Or does update external data need to be tweaked in the Android version?
                            Thanks for your time,
                            Gary D

                            • Support use of form controls.

                              I understand that opening form controls was just added, though it makes the form controls non-functional. The next step is enabling their use.

                              Simple form controls (like the spin button) are fantastic for touchscreen devices, as they can allow cell modification without typing and don't require macros.

                              • external data source

                                Nie wiem czy ktoś tu jeszcze zagląda i bierze pod uwagę sugestie. Aplikacja Excel na androida jest świetna i działa znakomicie. Niestety ale nie ma w niej możliwości odświeżenia danych zewnętrznych z innego skoroszytu. W dzisiejszych czasach to podstawa przy działaniach na kilku dokumentach.
                                W firmie korzystamy z office365 i większość danych w dokumentach jest uzupełniane z telefonów lub tabletów. Niestety ale brak tej opcji BARDZO utrudnia pracę. Nie da się wszędzie chodzić z komputerem a firmy nie inwestują już w laptopy. Inwestują w tablety i telefony komórkowe do pracy również w terenie.
                                Bardzo bym prosił o wprowadzenie możliwości aktualizacji…

                                  • Calculations Options

                                    It will be useful to have an options to have Automatic and Manual calculation as in PC. When working on large workbook with multiple linked sheet, it take several seconds/minutes to add data/transactions into excel as every entry is recalculated. With Automatic and Manual calculations options, one can disable auto calculate, complete a task and re-enable it. This allow quick completion of task on phone, tablet etc. Please this is difference from Auto save.
                                    Thanks

                                    • Inside cell border option

                                      The options for border have various combinations, including 'all border' and 'only outside borders'. But it does not include options for inside a grid of cells such as 'inner vertical lines', 'inner horizontal lines' and 'only inside borders'.

                                      Please add these variations as they critical to format files with multiple rows and columns. On the PC version, these are available under the 'more borders' option but the same is not present in the mobile version. Kindly add this functionality.

                                      • Add Dark Themes to Excel for Android

                                        I use excel to record my temperature when I wake up every morning and having a blindingly bright screen flash in my face in a dark room is very painful. We already have dark themes for the computer versions, why not add them to the android versions too?

                                        • Allow editing offline OneDrive files

                                          Hi there,

                                          I am migrating from Google Apps to Office 365 Home and I found that I cannot edit Office documents that are made offline in OneDrive when I have no internet access on Android. Google knows it for free and I think it is a very convenient feature. Can you please give me a quick answer about are you currently working on this feature or is it on your backlog or there is no chance to have this feature?

                                          Thanks,
                                          Denes
