We are the Microsoft Excel team - Ask Us Anything!
Hello from the Microsoft Excel team! We are the team that designs, implements, and tests Excel on many different platforms; e.g. Windows desktop, Windows mobile, Mac, iOS, Android, and the Web. We have an experienced group of engineers and program managers with deep experience across the product primed and ready to answer your questions. We did this a year ago and had a great time. We are excited to be back. We'll focus on answering questions we know best - Excel on its various platforms, and questions about us or the Excel team.
We'll start answering questions at 9:00 AM PDT and continue until 11:00 AM PDT.
After this AMA, you may have future help type questions that come up. You can still ask these normal Excel questions in the /r/excel subreddit.

Edit: We're going to be here for another 30 minutes or so. The questions have been great so far. Keep them coming.
Edit: 10:57am Pacific -- we're having a firedrill right now (fun!). A couple of us working in the stairwell to keep answering questions.
Edit: 11:07 PST - we are all back from our fire-drill. We'll be hanging around for awhile to wrap up answering questions.
Edit: 11:50 PST - We are bringing this AMA session to a close. We will scrub through any remaining top questions in the next few days.
