  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Include subtitles in response output

    I really like Forms, but I just discovered something that almost makes them useless in my current use case.
    I can "group" questions at design time by using a common Title but different subtitles within each set of questions.
    However, the Responses lose the subtitle making the answers useless. Since I use the Excel file to port answers to another application, I can't use subtitles to distinguish questions within the Titled group.

  5. Length of number of mobile or telephone number

    If person want to write mobile number and if number is shorter or longer than desire length is should not be accepted.

    If some text is in a specific format like xx-xx-xx-xxxx and as person writes it should be in that format only

  6. Make features consistent between OneDrive and SharePoint

    Working with a Form linked to a OneDrive spreadsheet and it seems to work OK.

    When I open a spreadsheet in a SharePoint folder I get a feature called "Survey" but I guess I shouldn't use that becasue it's on its way to being depreciated?

    I'm terrified to move files or open in desktop Excel for fear of breaking them.

    This reminds be of the Skype / Skype For Business / Lync debacle.

    More coherence in product roadmaps please!

  13. Responses not recorded for unmodified ranking questions

    When a Forms question is set up as a 'Rating' type, and if a responder leaves the ratings as is and doesn't upvote or downvote any items on the list (i.e. keeps the default ratings) then submits the Form, the default ranking is not exported to Excel for that responder.

    It looks like Forms is treating this question as a blank response, but it is a valid use case for a responder to just accept the default ranking and submit the Form. Forms should still record this as a valid response and allow this to be exported to Excel

  14. 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.

  15. 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?

  18. Add ability to link several forms to one Excel (different tabs) in Forms for Excel

    I want to create excel file with different data entry forms for different users. For this reason would be good to be able to have multiple forms linked to excel instead of just one.

  20. 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
