  1. look at the restrictions

    If the restriction is selected as a number then the data populated into excel should be in number format as well to do formulas. Otehrwise you need to change the numbers to number value each time.

  2. I want to consume the data stored in my office form AS an external data source in Excel

    This will allow me to build "reporting" (i.e. pivot tables, charts, etc.) in excel and then update them without needing to manually download the data and copy/paste it.

  3. Excel Summary to detail questions in order they are, rather than order they were created

    Currently when I create an Excel file of responses it lists the columns in the order they were created rather than the order they are currently in. Because I have lots of similar questions that appear throughout my form, I make use of the 'copy question' function and then move the new question to wherever it needs to be. My excel report now doesn't make sense and I have to move the columns around.
    As my form is linked to an Excel document through Sharepoint, why isn't it possible for the Excel document to refresh the column data with the…

  7. Correct general issues with Excel exports/syncs

    Whenever I export Form results to Excel, the data is formatted in a way that makes it difficult to work with. Even if I remove all formats or convert text to numbers, I frequently encounter bugs. F4 doesn't work to lock cells in equations, dates written in MM/DD/YYYY format don't actually convert to dates format even when I remove formatting or change it manually, etc.

    Plus, I also find that these document regularly add dead cells hundreds of columns in so that my scroll bar is useless without manually deleting all extra columns. This usually happens with Online Excel documents.

  10. Make It Possible That Forms Are Submitted to Two Places

    We use Microsoft Forms at our school as a way to track student behavior. When a teacher provides a consequence to a student, they log it on a Microsoft Form. Due to privacy concerns, we cannot allow all teachers to have access to the Excel results. Is there a way that when a teacher submits a form, it can go two places: the private Excel spreadsheet containing all submissions from all teachers AND a personal Excel spreadsheet containing just that teacher's submissions?

  13. Make Version column visible while exporting document library (In SPO) to excel

    This is a known issue for MS. A solution could be as described in the following link:

    https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/fesiro/2012/12/01/how-to-includeretain-the-document-version-with-export-to-excel-spreadsheet/

    Should be nice, if we don't have to us this workaround, but that MS comes with a solution.

  15. select the answers to go to the spreadsheet

    I would like to be able to select a number of answers to show in the spreadsheet (rather than all of them)

    That is to say select say five pithy questions and their responses and generate the spreadsheet so I can present focused data :-)

  18. Allow ALL feedback to be exported from a form after marking has taken place

    At present when results are exported, not all feedback is exported. If questions are reviewed and fed back after a test is taken then this feedback is not exported in the Excel file - which kind of defeats the point in the feedback column for each question being there. This would be incredibly useful when making a record of feedback given.
