  1. Connect results to Excel as a data source rather than opening a new workbook each time

    The form is great in terms of collecting responses. That said, if you need to view all the data at once, you need to open the form results in Excel. If you do that, it appears to open a separate result each time. There is no way to edit the results workbook. For example, I want to add a column to the results where I can keep track of whether or not I have contacted the person since they have filled out the form. If I add that column to the table, it will be gone when I next click…

    • Reactivate the ability to use Microsoft Forms Data Sync in Excel

      Towards to end of 2016, the Excel add-in, Microsoft Forms Data Sync, was functioning well. This add-in allows for the form data to update although a user is analyzing data in Excel 2013/2016.

      • Add a column with total correct when exporting to Excel

        A column with total correct of the quiz feature questions would be helpful when viewing the Excel Spreadsheet for those who need to take the information to another database.

        • Allow multiple forms to be assigned to single workbook as separate sheets

          My scenario: I run multiple trainings each week. I create Forms from Excel to tie the data to OneDrive and Sharepoint (depending), which is great, but each form has to be in a separate workbook, even though it creates a new sheet for the form. It would be VERY helpful to generate multiple forms from a single workbook, each as its own sheet, so I could collect all forms for a particular class, topic or timeframe, as I see fit.

            • Allow an option to customize the excel document that is generated by the form

              Allow one question to break the excel file into sheets based on the respondent's answer to that question.

              If question one has 4 options, each of the options generates the data into a different sheet to allow for easier readability.

              After a respondent answers "Option A", then their data all goes into sheet named "Option A"

                • Add a colum in the spreadsheet results showing the row score. . . For example: 9/10, 9 or 90 percent.

                  Currently we get the score of the Quiz/Form. However, the Excel form does not provide us with the row score. This way, we could create sub groups.

                  • two surveys, one excel doc

                    I would like to have two surveys: one before event and another after event where the responses are tracked in one single place (there would be one unique field response in the second survey that would signal which row to place the results in the first excel doc.) Is this possible?

                      • Allow the Quiz Creator to be able to input answers that can be automatically marked in the text portion of the exam.

                        multiple choice doesn't work well for younger students.
                        Math works best with allowing students the ability to show their work.
                        Some math equations can't be answered by multiple choice.
                        I would still like to automatically mark their answers via excel.

                          • I need to create reports from each category so that one employee does not need to see other's feedback except their own.

                            I would like to pull a different report for each category. I would like to customize reports further without having to sort and modify the excel file every time I pull a new report.
