Greetings from the Excel Team

Hi there! 


As an appreciated member of the Microsoft Excel Community, we wanted to give you the opportunity to connect with us and see what we are working on. We have an anonymous, optional survey at the bottom where you can tell us a little about yourself and what you want to learn from us on the product team. 


We blog here as we have features and updates to announce, and you can always write us comments and provide feedback. Did you know that you can subscribe to updates on the blog by RSS or email under this dropdown? 




Look for these New Features

  • Chat with your real-time collaborators – Communicate with those working in your spreadsheet without having to leave the app! Learn more here.
  • The new and improved Accessibility Checker – All it takes is one click to check your spreadsheet for international standards and handy recommendations. Learn more here.
