  7. Be able to save the responses as numbers when they are restricted to contain numbers.

    I have restricted a form entry to number format; however when I save the responses using excel the number saves as a character. Example: Form response of 7 saves in the excel document as '7. This is very inconvenient if you want to use these numbers in any kind of formula in excel. If this could be fixed I think it would improve forms greatly. Please consider doing this!

  8. format the excel sheets we export AUTOMATICALLY

    WHEN WE EXPORT THE excel sheet from forms the data fields are not automatically formatted to their correct data set. numbers are not numbers, time is not time etc.
    I have to MANUALLY change EACH column in the excel sheet: I have 27 of these surveys with 25 students EACH, that means an enormous amount of work.
    either format automatically or power up excel because right now I can only convert 1 single columns at the time to number.
    selecting the whole sheet and choosing number as data set does not work at all.

  9. Data retrieval failure

    Hi! I have some microsoft excel forms created with responses collected, but don't know why I couldn't retrieve the data. When I download the excel form, it is empty inside and said the file might be damaged. I couldn't even view the summarized result online. What can I do to obtain the data? Thank you!

  10. Improved Data Extraction

    The export to excel could be more sophisticated so the data can be 'played with' e.g. my wishlist for forms would be being able to pick how each question is opened in excel (a bit like qualtrics)...perhaps even the results opening in excel in tabular form would be good (as it does in the responses screen) which can then be 'played with' e.g. converted to different chart types.

  13. make it an option that allow forms to show the submitters' email address instead of having it populate as anonymous in the responses

    make it an option that allow forms to show the submitters' email address instead of having it populate as anonymous in the responses. Some forms do not require anonymity so it is cumbersome to have an extra column populate that says anonymous anyway. showing the submitters' email address is a good way to check that an email was entered correctly when asked for

  18. Allow the ability to define custom column names rather than using the question

    Currently all responses are stored in an Excel like table. That's great, but the headers are always the question. Not so great for two main reasons. 1) The question can sometimes be a very long sentence. 2) Changing the question (even slightly) changes the header. If you are using Flow/PowerAutomate, you need to get responses by referencing the column name, Things break easy in this scenario.

    It would be awesome, if we can override the column header value for each defined question! This should be REALLY easy to implement.
