  1. Option to remove time stamp

    I want my employees to be able to leave completely anonymous feedback. If the form response is time stamped, it will be easy for me to figure out who is leaving feedback even if I don't collect their names. It would be nice if I could make it possible to not see time stamp information

  3. Add a way to pick answer options from a table or by doing something like a VLOOKUP

    This would link forms to a list in an excel. For example if i want question to be Choose Color and the Colors are saved under a list in excel, there should be a way by which all the colors in the list appear as answer options for the question

  6. Add additional responses

    Occasionally I get out of band responses to forms. For example, respondent prefers to verbally provide information that I would like to add to the Forms database backend without having to add in the data and generate new graphs every time I export.

  7. Including the title and description when you pull results to Excel

    When the results of the form are exported to Excel, the title and description of the form is not included on that spreadsheet. It would be helpful it everything on the form was also included on that spreadsheet.

  9. Utilzing FORMS as a supply requisition list that will allow each item to have its own heading on the Excel Spreadsheet.

    As a social service agency, we require a FORM that can be utilized for when various programs request supplies. It would be extremely helpful to have the results that appear on the Excel spreadsheet be broken down by a heading per items. Currently, multiple responses appear in one cell which is not useful when running reports of which items are most requested.

  10. Allow us to dump the results from any particular respondent into Excel.

    Looks like it combines all responses into one Excel doc when you go to Excel. We want to be able to save someone's response with their file outside of MS Forms.

  12. Excel Survey vs Forms

    The survey for Excel online should looks like Forms and includes a calendar to select the date. Why work twice doing similar things?

  14. Fel i

    Det är fel i den svenska versionen av Forms.
    Det står "Genomsnittlig tid att slutföra"
    Borde vara "Total tid för att genomföra"

  15. linked excel file should record information as 'data', not as a 'spreadsheet'

    Instead of each question having its own column in Excel, there should be one column which contains the question number, another column with the question title, and another column with the response.

    Essentially, each question/response would be a seperate ROW in excel, not all questions/responses on the same row.

    Each row should also contain "KEY" information like the date, respondant's name etc.

    This would enable us to analyse response in PowerBI much easier.

    Please see the attached file. the DATA tab shows the prefered data format

  17. Bring back the locked sign on MS Forms !

    It used to have a "locked" on forms when I uncheck the "receiving response" now it's gone... I lost the ability to differentiate draft from production forms !

    Please bring it back or assign other indicator.

  18. Once a form has been submitted, I need to add data. Ex. my teachers log missed prep then office needs to add a a date when prep recovered

    Once a form has been submitted, I sometimes need to add data. For example my teachers log missed prep on a form, but then the office needs to add a date when prep was recovered. I have added a question "For Office Use only" but we can't add to a submitted form.... We can only track when the teacher's miss prep, but not when their prep is recovered.

  20. Problem while exporting on Excel

    Hi team, I have an issue exporting the results of my Form on Excel; some answers come with the number 6 for a rating between 1 and 5 in the question. Where does the 6 come from ? It happened on several questions and with several respondents. We can't rely on false results. Thank you for your help.
