Excel has a feature where you can remove duplicates with a single click. This would be very helpful to have in LibreOffice as well.

Yes, that is what I was looking for. But I still think it should be an optional button/dialog available on the main toolbar without having to go through all that.

Below also another program that easily performs the procedure.
Additional detail: in Excel, the function *removes* duplicates in-place, while filter in LO only allows hiding in-place, or removing by copying to a different location. So actually, LO lacks the functionality.

IMHO, in Excel it made more clear for users. Different dialogue with very simple options. And in result in Excel we have only rows without any duplicates and without copying of result to another range...

I would also like to request that "Remove Duplicates" is added to Calc.
In Excel, removing duplicates from a column is a one click action. In Calc I have to go through multiple steps to obtain this. It's a waste of time if it's encessary to do it in multiple spreadsheets, it's a waste of time to make a macro and other spreadsheets offer this by default.
There is an extension that adds this function to Calc so I propose that this is added to the default installation, that a .uno command is created for this button to be integrated in the Notebookbars as well.

Well, that extension apparently does not work in 6.1
Dear Markus and Eike,
Would it be possible to use the code on the extension to provide this function by default on Calc?
It is a really useful data manipulation option that Calc should have by default like most Office suites have.

Well, Muhammet Kara after checking the extension confirmed that it is written in Basic, meaning that it is a macro.
If someone would translate it to C++, it would be awesome.

Now there is faster extension https://extensions.libreoffice.org/extensions/remove-duplicates-fast for it
Couldn't this extension be added by default to LibreOffice?

Couldn't your extension be added by default to LibreOffice?
Also, please consider adding support for it to create its own tab in the Tabbed Bar UI.
