  1. Survey sections, headers, and other format options

    Excel online surveys need to be able to compete with Google surveys. Really surprised there is no basic formatting and a user can't even add section headers to divide up survey content. Finding it hard to believe nothing like that has been added since Excel online surveys became available years ago...

  4. Allow edit of submitted survey

    After you have submitted an Excel online survey form, it would be good to have an option to edit your choice while the survey is active.

  7. hyperlink

    I use a Form to have students submit a shared file link (I don't want to receive 100 e-mails from students).

    When I open the Form data in Excel, the shared link is not automatically hyperlinked. I have to click into each cell, move to the end of the link and hit enter in order to "activate" the hyperlink to the assignment. Is there a better way of doing this that I'm unaware of at this time?

    Thanks,
    md

  9. Have multiple surveys for one spreadsheet

    I would like the ability to create more than one survey for the same spreadsheet. Perhaps each tab could have its own survey. What I would like to do in particular is have one survey to submit ideas and another one to vote for the ideas. This would also require the use of logic but other people have touched on that. I'm not sure if 'logic' includes being able to post one of the cells to your survey however.

    If this idea already was stated let me know and I will vote for it!

  12. Convert an existing excel sheet to a survey (rather than having to start a blank sheet as a survey).

    I have a master list of information with questions and answers on it. I want to create a survey from selected parts of it - how can I do it without having to start with a fresh survey file/cutting and pasting. I am fine if it is a second sheet in the same file as I can link through to it.
    I also may be surveying two different groups to get the answers - some questions all will answer, but some question I only one to send to one group and not the other and vice versa.

  16. survey, excel sheet restructure

    I have finally after a few modifications to finish a survey. The problem is now, that if I enter information into the survey, it's out of order. I should be able to either reset the excel sheet to update the columns or cut and paste.

  17. Add the option to select phone number as an option type.

    Add the option to select "Phone Number" as an option type.The Excel spreadsheet always drops the Zero and you have to manually correct the phone numbers. Great Product!

  18. Excel Survey and Access synchronization

    I'd like to be able to automatically import the data from my excel online table into access once I receive survey submissions. Currently I need to copy and paste data from excel online to a local excel table and then import it to Access.

  20. Online forms to support "grid" as exists in Google forms, and when done so to allow more than a single answer per row (Google does not)

    Support Grid or matrix as a survey option and allow user to select more than a single answer within the matrix (grid as Google calls it). (Google does not support multiple answers). An example is dates as rows and class names, time of day, availability (yes/no), etc. as columns. When dates are recorded in the form and then the spreadsheet, allow the format to be in date format unlike Google where they are text.
