I suggest you ...

Block users to work with client application on documents on cloud - i.e. allow only editing in excel online!

We will be happy to send the following important\urgent feedback to Microsoft:

It's important to allow users to access documents online only!
If other users can edit in excel (client application) so we have conflicts and any other error messages will pop-up while someone else is trying to work offline (with client application).

In other words, block users to work with client application on documents on cloud.

We cannot leave google cloud services yet!

Thanks,
Avichai

    Either this, or supporting co-authoring in the Excel desktop version would greatly help me convince my users that Office online is a viable alternative to Google Docs. Sadly the online experience isn't rich enough yet, so they revert to the desktop app., which then causes locking issues/errors. Thanks
