  3. 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 -…

  4. optie om de 'antwoorden' automatisch te laten verzamelen in een excell en waar de nieuwe antwoorden automatisch bijkomen

    Optie om de 'antwoorden' automatisch te laten verzamelen in een excell en waar de nieuwe antwoorden automatisch bijkomen.
    Momenteel kan je de antwoorden in een excell opslaan maar bij elk nieuw antwoord moet je en nieuwe tabel downloaden.
    Met een excell die zichzelf update bij nieuwe antwoorden blijf je constant op de hoogte van alle antwoorden en is er veel minder werk!

  12. Refresh Excel question order when rearranging MS Forms questions

    I have had to rearrange the question order in my Form when creating a survey, yet when I open the Form in Excel the columns are in completely the wrong order, and there are even blank column headers rather than questions.

    I have tried to move the columns around on the Excel sheet, but keep receiving an error message. I have tried 'Refreshing all connections' to see if that rectified the issue, but have has no success.

    There either needs to be a live refresh built into Forms for Excel, or there should be an option to be able to…

  15. Ability to choose Excel sheet destination

    It would be great if we could choose what workbook (and sheets in that workbook) a specific form feeds into, so we can have multiple forms flowing into one workbook.

  16. Enable forms on 'Communications' type Sharepoint sites

    It seems that only 'Teams' or 'Office Group' enabled sites allow form creation right now, which means in our org, we are unable to create and store forms on some of our existing sites.

  17. Sharepoint should have the same form creation functionality

    Sharepoint should have the same form creation functionality as One Drive, which I always consider my "personal area" of SP. I.e. we should be able to create the excel file or a form from anywhere on SP, too - we´re itnerested in creating surveys that would feed Excel files we store oN SP. Maybe someone knows the solution and I have not understood? Otherwise it makes no sense to limit this functionality in such a powerful thing as SP.

  20. Allow Forms to be created via document libraries before using the Forms site

    You cannot create and open Forms for Excel unless you've launched the Forms app from the portal pages. This needs to change and it blocks users from opening newly created Forms from within a document library.
