Set default Cell Types like Date(Time)Picker, Checkbox, 
SimpleCombo, Autocomplete or own Custom Editor (see other Feedback suggestion)

I can't see how forcing a user to mouse-click on a drop-down is user-friendly. Surely there must be a way to "activate" the editor from the keyboard?

I still think having inline editors using the existing Kendo control suite (ie a numeric textbox, or a mask textbox) would provide the most useful functionality. 

I think the real problem is Kendo want to make an Excel-like control; but the user base wants a spreadsheet control they can develop. Excel-like controls are best left to Google.......

It would be really nice you custom inline editors are also supported. If users need to punch in a lot of number having to click on the icon to invoke the custom editor is quite tedious. An example of an inline editor could a a spinner control where you could easily increase or decrease a number.

Kendo Spreadsheet would be great if it is possible to have a different template for cell like dropdown, date picker

Any news on this?Will the Q2 2016 release contain this feature?

We plan to use this widget as timesheet and need dropdown for specific columns, for example customers, projects, articles, ..

Ability to set a cell to (say) a datatype - "Date" and have the date picker evoked as the editor.
Similar drops downs for lists, numerics etc
Also allow custom angular directives in cells (eg charts)

Would be awesome to have a datepicker for date type cells and dropdown list for list of values like, for example, Google Spreadsheets

Is it possible to have a cell in a column be a dropdown of choices similar to how you can in Excel?

Like on Kendo Grid / cell base to have any kind of widget to lookup or select values
