  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…

    Hi Forms users,

    Thanks for using Microsoft Forms and providing feedback.

    We just enabled a new feature “Forms for Excel” for all Microsoft Forms customers. When you create Forms for Excel in your OneDrive for Business / modern SharePoint team sites, you will get an Excel workbook at the same time. All the responses data will show up in your Excel workbook in real time.

    You could get more detail from – https://aka.ms/formsforexcel

    Please be free to leave comments if you have any question.

    Regards,
    Microsoft Forms Team

  2. 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.

  3. I would like to view responses in an online Excel sheet that updates automatically (adding a table row) when new responses are submitted.

    Allow reponses to be viewed in a live Office365 Excel sheet so that new submissions can be seen right away. Unfortunately, downloading the Excel sheet to view doesn't let us see new responses right away.

  4. URGENTLY change Likert -scale replies as number in excel.

    Now Likert -replies appear as text in the excel sheet. Excel can't count text so it is impossible to count or see average numbers. That means you can't analyse the results unless every time you choose cell type text to numbers

  5. 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.

  6. Share ms form result page allowing individual response printing

    Share and printing result now confined to summary.
    I have a need where people need proof thay have submit a form thus comes the need for them to print what they submit.
    This featrure is available only to the form maker on the response page... but there is no way to share that page.
    I need to let user print individual response.

  7. Make it possible to reconnect a form to an excel file after moving the excel file

    I made Form from and Excel file. It was great but then I needed to move the Excel File. This broke the connection between the file and the form and I had to redo the form again in the new location.

  8. 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.

  10. Number in Excel file

    I suggest that the number type fields of the form are not type text in the exported EXCEL file.

  11. Choose "Forms for Excel" from Office 365 Forms

    Currently, to create Forms for Excel one needs to open Excel from O365; for "regular" Forms you use the Forms tile. It would be great if we could go to Forms and, when creating, choose Forms for Excel.

    Ancillary to this; because Forms for Excel, once created, show in Forms, it would be beneficial to be able to tell from the tile which kind of Form one is. Currently, the only way I'm aware is that if you go to Responses, Forms show the dark green icon and the Forms for Excel show the light green one to show that…

  12. Allow duplication of Form in sharepoint

    We are using forms in the school office to collect data from parents & record observations. We need to be able to create form templates so they can be easily duplicated. At the moment if you duplicate a form it creates a copy in your onedrive, once you copy this to the required sharepoint area the form functionality is lost.

    The form functionality is also lost if you try to copy the excel sheet created.

    We really need this asap, having to recreate a form every time is not only a waste of time it leaves us open to errors…

  13. allow to duplicate a form when created through the excel program.

    When previously creating a survey in excel, the functionality existed to duplicate the same survey (through excel) by changing the name and saving - there was no need to retype the survey. Data collected by an excel survey automatically populated into an excel spreadsheet. However, with the change to forms in excel, a new form is needed each time a new excel spreadsheet is copied - making the creation of the same form via excel for different populations / demographics more time consuming.

  14. Forms to Excel connection

    I rearranged the questions in my Form, but the Excel still keeps the old order. I'd love to be able to rearrange the Excel to match the order of questions I have on the form.

  15. Allow the import responses from Excel to Forms

    I alredy have the responses of a form and I create the Form (with the same fields) using "Microsoft Forms", but I need to copy and past each response. So I suggest you to implement a button to import responses from Excel.

  16. Copy/Paste from Excel to Forms

    I would like to copy from a column in excel and paste into options in forms and each row goes onto its own option. Currently if I copy from Excel and paste into forms, all of the data pastes into 1 option instead of # options.

  18. Have the "Open in Excel" link open in ONLINE Excel. Downloading a static doc is kind of worthless. I want a linked Excel doc I can share.

    Have the "Open in Excel" link open in ONLINE Excel. Downloading a static doc is kind of worthless. I want a linked Excel doc I can share. The same way Google survey results work.
