  1. Push URL(s) in Responses to Excel spreadsheet as live hyperlinks

    When pulling results from Form Responses to an Excel spreadsheet, the URLs in the Responses do not format as links in the Excel spreadsheet.

  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.

  4. 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

  5. Allow to download data from mutliple forms/quizzes at once

    Would be nice to be able to download data from multiple forms at once. Would also be nice to be able to group forms together into groups for managing a large number of forms.

  6. Form Number Responses being stored as text rather than numbers. (Huge Issue)

    Right now, and I think that it was potentially a recent update, the numbers collected by a form are stored in Excel as text. For example, instead of
    " 1234 " it's " '1234 ". This is a huge issue. It basically makes automatic data analysis impossible.

    Please advise when this can be changed.

  8. Archive form responses so they do not appear in Excel export

    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.

  9. 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"

  10. 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.

  11. Allow Onedrive personal users to save Forms excel automatically within their Onedrive

    Allow Onedrive personal users to save Forms excel automatically within their Onedrive.

    I have a form for personal use that automatically can calculate information that I need from a table, however I want to be able to edit that table.

  12. 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.

  14. To be able to move or copy your excel group form around groups/document libraries without having to recreate.

    To be able to move or copy your excel group form around groups/document libraries without having to recreate. Currently if you move or copy an excel group form you have to recreate the form. From what I can see if you move in fact your form is then lost?

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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!
