    Thanks for the suggestion Malcom. We’ll keep an eye on this – we’ll be more deeply investigating things with more votes, so people should up vote this if they like it. I’d also encourage people to chime in on the comments for this one with any specific asks for particular cases/operations they care about more than others.

    Cheers,
    John [MS XL]

    I very much agree. The new spreadsheet analysis tools are helpful but if this could be tied to some form of documentation much as malcolm suggested. An option to turn on documentation which would create (and keep updated) a list of items on the page such as uses of names, function for sections. I do this currently in comments. They are clunky and don't aggregate. A simple formal methodology for documentation would be the basis which would then describe the documentation tools needed. This also means it would be 100 times easier to pick up someone else's work if there was a simple documentation protocol. With the new power of PP+PBI it is one of the things that's preventing adoption for many IT professionals. They have had long days and sleepless nights trying to unpick someone else's work and despite the obvious step change in excel's capability they will always associate "spreadsheets" with clunky unprofessional undocumented work. An excel supported documentation methodology and tools would go a long way to address this. Many of the "technical" parts exist in the new spreadsheet analysis tools which are great. It's just marrying it to a user interface and a suggested methodology.

    Thanks for the feedback. We’ll consider this for a future release. Please continue to vote on this feature request which will increase its likelihood of getting in the product.

    In the meantime, you can also use Office Addins found on the Excel 2013 insert tab. You can create your own Office Addins or use those from the store – many of which are visualizations. The Office Add-ins essentially allow you to use javascript and javascript libraries such as d3.js to create what ever you need.

    Thanks,

    We’ve just merged two items that were both requests for the Median function in PivotTables. One had been for Windows, the other for Mac. When we get to this, we should actually make the addition on all platforms including Windows, Mac, Web, and others.

    I received email back from Sam saying he’s expecting this to be the Table Analysis functionality (like key influencers, highlight exceptions), and not the explicit Data Mining features (like clustering). Am going to update the title, and we’ll wait for more votes before considering this item.
    Thanks, Sam!

    Good news. We are in the planning stages for improving the Unhide Sheet dialog box so that you can select multiple sheets and unhide them at the same time.

    Thanks for supporting this suggestion.

    Great suggestion – thanks again for taking the time to put it on this site and for the thoughtful followup comments. This is pretty related to some other work we’ve got going and already has a fair number of votes, so we’ll work on getting plans in place now and hope to get started on this soon.

    Thanks,
    John [MS XL]
