What do you think about Excel Online? Do you recommend it? Excel Online for Windows. Softonic review. Joe Wainer Updated 4 months ago. Excel Online for PC. Sheets 1. SmartTools Servicepack for Word. Your review for Excel Online. There is one spot where Excel Online is full featured: Functions.
Excel includes functions , including 11 new ones just added to this version along with 51 functions added in , and 57 added in —and they're all included in the Excel Web App. Everything else is supported; even if the function isn't shown in the auto-complete dropdown, it'll still work once you enter it correctly.
Excel will auto-complete the function name—press the Tab key to accept the suggested function—and then give you tips on what data you should include in the function. Or, you can look through the included functions by clicking the fx button right under the toolbar.
You can click cells to add them to your function, just as in other versions of Excel. And, once you've added a function to a cell, just select it and drag down to add the function to all of the other cells you've selected. If you only need to glance at the data, just select a range of numbers and the bottom right toolbar will show you the sum, average, and count automatically.
Tip : Learn more about each function in Excel with Microsoft's Excel function guide. Once you've added data to your spreadsheet and have crunched your numbers with functions, it's time to bring it to life with charts. Excel Online includes a wide range of charts—and most of the tools you need to customize their appearance.
Just select the data you want to visualize, then click the Insert menu and select one of the chart styles you'd like. Excel will automatically generate the chart—and if you don't like it, just click any of the other chart types in the new Chart tab. Then, you can customize your chart's title, legends, and labels.
Just select the menu option for the item you want, and you can both add text and customize where it's displayed. Unfortunately, there are no theme or color options for charts in Excel Online. If you want something different from the default colors, start your spreadsheet using one of the built-in Excel templates, and your charts will pick up the colors from that template.
Alternatively, open your spreadsheet in Excel on your computer to change the design—then save it, and the changes will show up in Excel Online, too. Or, perhaps you just need an easier way to sort through data. For that, Excel's Tables are the tool you need.
Select the data you want to sort through, and click the Format as Table button in the Home toolbar. Or, you can add custom filters to find exactly the data you want. Excel for Mac and Windows also includes Pivot Tables , 2-dimensional tables that give you more powerful ways to view and organize data. You can't create them in Microsoft Excel Online—but if you have already added them to a spreadsheet, you can view them in Excel Online.
With your spreadsheets online, Excel can work in the background even when your computer is turned off. One of the handiest ways to use that is with Excel Online's built-in Surveys tool. It's one Excel feature you won't find in the other versions of Excel. That opens an editor pop-over, where you can add a title and description to your form or survey, along with your survey questions.
Just add your question and an optional subtitle, along with choices if you selected that question type. Then, choose whether the question is required, and optionally provide a default answer. Then, click the Share Survey button to copy a link to your survey. You can share that link privately in emails, or share it publicly to get a wider range of answers. Excel will automatically save your survey responses to a new sheet in your spreadsheet, with table formatting so you can easily sort through and filter your survey responses.
For a more full-featured form app connected to a spreadsheet, check out our guide to Google Forms. Or, use any online form apps , and connect it to your Excel spreadsheet with integrations. Need to crunch numbers as a team? Just click the big Share button in the top right corner of Excel Online to get started.
You can share the spreadsheet via email, sending a message along with a private link to your colleagues. Or, you can get a view or edit link to share directly. Anyone with the link can view or edit your spreadsheet, depending on the link you chose. If you have an Office Business account, Excel offers more granular sharing options. You can restrict your file to only people in your company, or make it view-only. You can also add a link expiration date so it's not shared forever, or copy a QR code that your collaborators can scan to work with you.
Once your colleagues have opened your spreadsheet, everyone can work on it together inside Excel Online—though you can't open the file in traditional Excel apps at the same time. You'll see a list of the names of collaborators in the top right along with the cell they're currently editing. As changes are made, you'll see cells currently being edited shaded in that users' color, and cells selected by another user highlighted with their color. To work together a bit better, click the Review tab to open Excel's comment tools.
You can add a comment to a cell, show or hide the comments sidebar, or edit and delete any comments already on the spreadsheet. You can't add a second comment to a cell that already has a comment, and can't reply to comments, so you might need to work a bit to find a system that works well for your team. It's a good way to let others know where you left off work—or to identify cells that need changed—at least.
Want to share your spreadsheet with others offline so they can edit it in a traditional copy of Excel? You could either copy the spreadsheet from your OneDrive folder, or you can download a new copy from the web. Alternatively, you can download an OpenDocument formatted. If you're already an Excel user, you'll likely want to move your existing spreadsheets to the web so you can view and edit them in Excel online.
There are two ways to do that. You could open OneDrive. The best option, though, is to install the OneDrive apps, and sync your spreadsheets to the cloud. You can then edit them either with Excel on your computer or online with Excel Online, and have the changes saved to both places automatically.
To do that, just download the OneDrive app and install it, then log in with your Microsoft account. If you have multiple accounts—say a OneDrive for Business account for work and a free account for personal files—you can sync both of them at the same time. You can then open OneDrive online and see all of your synced files, organized into folders just like on your computer.
And if you're ready to edit one, just click it to open it in Excel Online. Any changes you make to the spreadsheet online will be saved back to your computer automatically. And if you make any new spreadsheets online, they'll also be saved to your computer in standard. That's one of the best features of Excel Online: it saves your data in real files, so your spreadsheets aren't trapped in the cloud.
One thing to note: Excel Online can only open. If you upload an older. As such, you'll first need to convert any spreadsheets you want to use online to the newer. Just open them in Excel, open the Save as You can then add those files to OneDrive to view and edit them online. Excel Online also can't open files larger than 10MB.
That should be fine for most spreadsheets. There is a workaround, though, if you have larger sheets. Microsoft Excel Online may have as many functions as traditional Excel, but it doesn't include anywhere near as many features. You can fix that to a degree with Office Add-ins. Incredibly, the same add-ins designed for Excel run in Excel Online, so you can use many of the same powerful tools that would otherwise require desktop Excel. To add an add-in to your Microsoft Excel Online spreadsheet, click the Insert menu in Excel Online and select Office Add-ins to browse the store right inside your spreadsheets.
Once you've found an add-in you want to use, just click the Add button to install it—and occasionally you'll then need to click a Start button to enable the add-in. You'll then see your add-ins from the sidebar along with any comments you've added to your documents. When you re-open this spreadsheet, those same add-ins should open in the sidebar again.
If you don't see them, just open the Add-ins Store again, add the same add-in to your spreadsheet, and the sidebar will appear with any add-ins you've enabled. There are a number of great add-ins, many of which connect to web apps and let your spreadsheets create invoices, manage projects, and more.
Some of the most handy are those that add extra features to Excel, or replace built-in features you'd find in Excel Here are some of the best to try:. Advanced Find and Replace to search deeply through your spreadsheets. Duplicate Remover to remove duplicate data. Split Text to Columns to make your data easier to use in a spreadsheet. Trim Spaces to remove extra blank spaces from your spreadsheets.
Compare Text to find differences between text. Merge Cells to merge rows, columns, or entire ranges. Solver to solve optimization problems for statistics. Bing Maps to create maps from your spreadsheet data. Blockspring to add extra data analysis functions to Excel. There is one thing you can't run in Excel Online: macros. Macros let you automate Excel, either by letting Excel record what you do in a spreadsheet or by writing simple code. For that, you'll need a traditional copy of Excel installed on your computer.
Then, you can write your own Excel macros to make powerful spreadsheets, and sync them with OneDrive to still be able to view and edit their info online. Want to build your own Excel Online add-ins? Here's a tutorial from Microsoft to help you get started.
Another great way to do more with Excel Online is with Excel integrations using app automation tool Zapier. Zapier can watch your spreadsheet for new or updated rows, and then start workflows with over other apps based on that data from your spreadsheet. Or, it can search through your spreadsheet, add a new row, or even update existing rows in your spreadsheets. Say you want to keep track of how many tasks your team finishes in Trello.
You'd just make a Zap with the Trello integration, and have Zapier watch for cards that are archived in Trello.
