  1. 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?

  2. migrate from personal forms (in Forms online) to group forms (in Teams)

    When we add forms in a channel in Teams. There are only 2 options for us: Collect responses and Show results. We would like to have full features like in Forms online, including Excel files, 2 tabs: Questions and Responses

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  6. More report options

    I like the options available in Survey Monkey that allow you to create reports out of the results. We use this functionality for peer appraisals and would like to share results with the employee in a concise report. Also, some people do not want to share their feedback with the staff member while most are willing to share; both anonymous and named respondents should be on the report.

  7. 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.

  12. 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?

  15. Export results without Excel's interpretation

    There needs to be way to export the results without Excel interfering with them. This could be CSV export, or give us the option to run the results through Excel's very good import function before displaying.

    When opening the results in Excel online, Excel tries to be helpful and automatically interprets some fields. The most destructive is where Excel decides that something is a date. Once it's decided my data is a date, I don't seem able to get the original text value back.

    The results are inconsistent and seem to default to US date interpretation, for example:
    "1 -…

  17. Record URL that an embedded form is submitted from

    Hi. We embed our forms in SharePoint online (to minimise clicks and bring to our audiences attention directly). When a response is submitted it would be useful for the URL to be recorded in the form report so we can analyse which pages are the most popular.

  18. Excel is showing deleted questions

    When I export to Excel, deleted questions are appearing in the spreadsheet. Why is this? Please fix this issue as it is really annoying to have to delete columns from each spreadsheet I export. This appears to be happening when I either copy a form and use it as a base to create a new form, or when I add a question, then change my mind and delete it again. The deleted and changed questions appear in the extracted file. Please fix this asap as it's really a bad function and such a time waster having to clean up each…

  20. enable Excel online to connect to more than just one form (one form per sheet, for example).

    Enable connecting one Excel document with several forms, so that different survey or quiz results can be stored in the same document.
