Buttons to add

The Data tab in Calc is still sorely needing more visibility for data manipulation buttons.
WPS Spreadsheet and Excel display buttons for Group, Ungroup and Subtotal. Validate (Validity in Calc), Consolidate and Remove Duplicates. These actions should be immediately visible in the Data tab in Calc (and there's still space in the tab to include them.

In the attachment I highlight the functions in Spreadsheed and Excel. These same functions are available in Calc and should be made visible in the Data tab. Data manipulation is one of the most important things to do in a spreadsheet software and having these available by buttons really facilitates macro recording.

This one is especially important to me since I use spreadsheets a lot. 
Anyone that performs heavy spreadsheet analysis for a living (ex. Customer Research Managers) also knows that having these data manipulation actions easily visible and accessible in their own tab is essential for their productivity. 
That and easy and fast access to pivot tables and Macros (Calc is good enough in both those fronts...).
