  1. Have white as the background color of the forms because all the background colors are in dark colors.

  3. Forms Results, Make it Open in Excel Online instead Saving to Hard Drive

    When Viewing Forms Results, it shows a Link for "Open in Excel"

    When you click on that, it Opens a Windows message to save to hard drive. Why not open in Office Online?

    It is time consuming to save and then re-upload to share with the team. Please Fix This!

    It seems like it is meant to open up in Office Online (Office 365), but it was just coded wrong.

    I have a long-lived form and I need to archive, hide, or indicate responses that I have 'processed' when they are downloaded to Excel so I only have the responses that have not been actioned or processed.

  12. Add the possiblility to embed a form afterwards in excel online. Add more features to excel online like "protect a sheet"

    At the moment it is only possible to add a "new form" to excel but it is not possible to add an existing form to excel online.

    Also it is not possible to protect a sheet. It would be very helpful to add at least a little more functions to excel online. Best way would be to get excel online as many functions as excel.

  13. 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"

  14. 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.

  16. create an importable Excel template for forms

    If you create an Excel template that can be imported into forms for easy survey/quiz creation, it would make for quick creation and revision.

    Such excel templates have been made for Moodle and it makes life much better.

  17. Export results with separate surname and first name and the score percentage.

    Hi,

    It would be great if I could sort the results by surname. I would also l to have the score percentage added to the export.
    Besides it would be very welcome to be able to select what information is exported.

    Thanks in advance

  18. Add a lookup (in dropdown) with own data input

    Having a list where the person who is filling the form can select on one parameter his own corresponding item.

    For example:
    You have a list of schools and by typing in the postal code, you only get the schools from this postal code and you can select your corresponding school

  19. Store excel sheet in SharePoint instead of OneDrive

    Allow users to select whether the data is stored in an Excel sheet in OneDrive or SharePoint, rather than forcing the user to store it in OneDrive. This makes it easier for others to perform analytics on the data.
