  3. Excel is not correct

    Hi, there seems to be a problem with our exports to excel. For example there are 40 respondents. When we go through each respondent everything is okay but when we do an export to excel there are missing respondents so it isn't an accurate overview in that way.

    Are we doing something wrong or is there a bug in the system?

    Thanks for the help!

    Kind regards

  4. Collaborate in Excel is not trait forward and confusing for newbies

    You really must create a better and more guided approach to collaborating across Office applications, in particular Excel. For newbies or users of Google Apps it's very confusing and tricky to collaborate without getting a locked or read-only file. Especially, when each collaborator has different Office 365 Accounts for different companies. Another example, if a collaborator works for Microsoft, another is a student at WSU, and a third has a personal office subsription, there just isn't an intuitive or well through through integration to get this to work together. If it doesn't work there is no indication why or guided…

  5. Allow different data field name to the question name in Excel Forms

    With Smartsheet, I can create a sheet then create a form attached to it. The sheet has data fields (which will subsequently be imported straight into ERP system) which have names that mean nothing to users so for the form questions I use more friendly names that users can understand, so eg the data field "Copied Variant Code" is seen by users as "Enter the variant code you want to copy from here...", there is then further help text (which MS Forms already covers). Would love to see this in Teams for Excel - Only reason why we will still…

  6. view the form responses as a spreadsheet rather than a summary page

  8. crosstab results analysis in excel

    To do filtering and crosstab in XL, the export of Qs with the possibility of Multiple Ticks has to place each possible answer in a separate column - rather than separate in a single column using a semicolon.

    Yes you can put these in multiple columns BUT each answer to "how did you hear about us?" needs to be in same column and.say via your website, in another column reserved just for those nswers.

    If this is already feasible, then please let me know how.

    Thanks
    David

  10. Add the ability to export out the results in a table (like from Google forms)

    I recommend to add the ability to export out the results in a table format (eg. excel sheet) like Google forms provides.

    It would enable to filter the results based on specific responses (eg. demography, role, etc.)

  12. Be able to use form as a maintenance log book

    The viewing of responses should be opened without downloading a new excel sheet everytime. It should simply update the first sheet. This excel sheet should then be able to be shared with other microsoft users.

    Also, The excel sheet should be able to be edited so that additional items for form managers can be added such as follow up or completed check boxes

  14. Questions in the excel output should also contain the serial no of questions as in the actual form.

    When we take output from the Microsoft forms, Questions mentioned in the top row in the excel output should also contain the serial no of questions as in the actual form.

  17. EXPORT responses to Excel as .iqy file

    Change the "Open in Excel" option for responses to "EXPORTto Excel" so that it dumps as a .iqy file linked to responses. Much like how SharePoint does. This will then allow the end user to just click refresh in their Excel table or pivot without having to go out to MS Forms, and repeat the process just to get the refreshed data/form responses.

  20. Create reusable forms for every day use

    Upload an excel spreadsheet 'form' that can be reused weekly. We are in construction and could use this 'form' as a daily 'field report' to report all activity within the field. We would like to be able to digitize our current forms list for daily and weekly use.
