Add SharePoint Person/Group Search Capability to Excel File?

Just like when a user can begin typing in a SharePoint Person/Group column (and relevant names pop-up in the same organization), can this same type of capability be added to a cell in MS Excel?

Hi @mattxbone1 

 

Thank you for posting.

 

I’m afraid it’s not possible to achieve your requirement currently. We can search user/group in SharePoint is because the SharePoint online server is integrated with O365 AzureAD. The user/group information is stored in AzureAD. They are connected with each other from the server side. However, the excel is just an tool. Although it’s designed by Microsoft, it doesn’t mean we have configured integration internally.

 

Apologize for the inconvenience caused. It’s meaningless even though we post this requirement in UserVoice cause it’s impossible to deploy Excel further on a technical level.

 

Hope the content above may help you.

 

Best regards,

Anna
