Excel is one of Microsoft’s premier productivity apps. CEO Satya Nadella said in June 2016 – “there's one product that stands above the rest as the best consumer product that the company has ever made — and a symbol of what the company is all about. Think about a world without Excel. That's just impossible for me". With millions of customers worldwide, the Excel team is looking at unique and differentiated ways to connect with our customers. We know that Excel users are extremely engaged… they want to learn new skills, contribute content and knowledge back into the community and form a strong, thriving community. We have seen this since the launch of our Excel community which is now one of the biggest community on the MSFT Tech community site. We launched the Excel World Championship from October 2016 to March2017 for the first time and the reach was amazing - millions of impressions worldwide and 6000 participants from 60 countries! Excel skills are proudly displayed on resumes, and it’s one of the top 5 skills employers look for (only bested by such basic competencies as communication and organization).
For such a large and engaged user base, it’s very important that we continue to delight them and improve the product based on their desires. We are making deep investments both in the product and customer outreach activities to truly embrace “Customer Love” culture within the Excel team. UserVoice is a site we use to capture feature request from our users. Over the last 6 months in 2017, we have released many features as requested on users on Excel UserVoice across various platforms. Overall we are proud to announce that we have addressed more than 20% of the issues by votes! It is important to note that those updates or new features are released to production for our Office 365 subscribers.
We love hearing from our customers. So continue to provide your suggestions and ideas for the next version of Excel on UserVoice. We will do our best to respond to the top suggestions.
