      • 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.

          • Add the ability to select multiple non-adjacent columns/rows/cells

            Some kind of Ctrl + click that could select data in non-adjacent locations would be very convenient for moving data around in addition to building graphs.

              • How can I edit protected sheet at phone?

                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.

                • Multiple columns sorting (like on WP)

                  Actually I cannot believe nobody asked this, but for my work (I have an Office 365 Business Premium account) sorting data is crucial.

                  At the moment Excel for Android DOESN'T ALLOW to sort data using more than one column. This means that I cannot sort for column "A" ascending and then for column "B" descending for example, because every new sort erases the previous.

                  Note: This feature was present in Excel for Windows Phone.

                  • 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.

                                • Improve date/time insertion

                                  It would be great to have the same keyboard shortcuts for date/time insertion on Android as there are on the desktop (Ctrl + ; and Ctrl + Shift + ;). Additionally, it would be great to have date/time entry for cells similar to the Google Sheets date/time entry (using a native date picker / time picker instead of needing to manually type in the numbers).

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Repair or update Excel for Android Nougat 7.1, it isn't working

                                          The Excel App was working in the 7.0 nougat platform, since I updated to 7.1 Nougat is not working anymore, it can't open , also, if you solve this, improve the performance too, since working in 7.0 , Excel, word and PPT were a bit laggy . My smartphone is a Moto z with 4gb ram, I had to switch to Polaris , waiting for you guys to make an update and figure the problem .
