  1. 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?

    • Hide Ribbon When Scrolling

      When opening and scrolling a excel sheet, it automatically goes into full screen mode. Can you provide an options as in Windows phone to hide/unhide the worksheet from going full screen when scrolling the data in a sheet.

      Thanks

      Thanks

      • 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

          • Allow more flexibility with charts, such as modifying the axis scales (min, max,units, etc.)

            The graph may be totally useless, as the axis start at x=0 and y=0 in a XY graph (for example, when data becomes a tight group).

              Please add the feature to Excel for Android. This is the ability to create custom number (cell) format as it is in Windows. I need numbers to add units of quantity. Pre-defined is only currency unit on Android. I am adding "m²", "kg" and the like. Thank you.

                  • Add barcode font 3 of 9 for mobile scanning

                    I want to scan directly off the screen and use excel to generate barcodes lists. It would make a mobile excel more useful.

                    • Excel Version 16.0.8027.1007 I use this software on my tablet connected to a Bluetooth external swiss-french keyboard bluetooth "Logitech".

                      I use this software on my tablet connected to a Bluetooth external swiss-french keyboard bluetooth "Logitech".

                      With this version of "Excel", the "AltGr" is not recognised.

                      As an example, on the Swiss keyboard layout, to get the "@" sign, we have to use "AltGr" + "2".

                      (This problem does not occur with "MS-Word" for Android.

                      I tried to reinstall "Excel" already.

                      • Pls add options to deselect and select options while using pivot tables in excel.

                        We are unable to view drop down options while using excel in android mobile phones. Hence request you to add these options so that we can use excel more extensively in andriod phones.

                          • Voice commands

                            Inputting on a touch screen is not as efficient without a keyboard or a mouse. Voice commands like "select cell a1" and "copy A1 till A5 paste in B1" could be useful.

                            • Refresh PivotTable or support "refresh data when opening the file"

                              Currently, Excel for Android does not support a refresh of the PivotTable cache.

                              It will certainly be very helpful if users are able to trigger refresh on the app, or at least be able to support "refresh data when opening the file" if this feature is set on the regular Excel desktop.

                              Thank you in advance,
                              Chris

                                • Make it stop re-inserting rows

                                  You can improve Excel for Android by making it stop re-inserting rows after they've been deleted. This happens all the time and it creates an awful nuisance when trying to navigate a small spreadsheet.

                                      • Wie kann ich bei einer bereits erstellten Datei eine Öffnungssperre einrichten

                                        Wie sperre ich eine Datei die bereits eingerichtet ist. Sie soll nur mit meinem Code zu öffnen sein

                                        Vielen vielen Dank!

                                        • App corrupts Excel files, preventing opening on other normally compatible software

                                          Opening, or in the case of password-protected files merely trying to open, an XLSX file in Excel for Android modifies the file. Permission is not requested and autosave is disabled, but file size is increased by roughly 30 % and the file then appears as corrupted to desktop Excel and other software such as Google Sheets.

                                          Sample files, both original and corrupted (-and), enclosed. Password is "password".
