  2. Mobile offline survey ability

    In the field of international development there is a great need for a cheap or free way of data collection through mobile devices that allows someone to download a survey to their mobile device when they have internet connection and then complete the survey as many times as desired offline (while in the field) then upload the data when internet connection is available again.

    There are still cases where Excel Online will be unable to duplicate a worksheet. Most notably, in case either one of the following is present in the worksheet:

    • Images

    Excel Online team is working to resolve these limitations.

  8. Surveys should allow completion by several users at the same time

    Hello!

    I have a survey in Sharepoint that I send to all the new subscribers to my site, and I've received several complains for people who are getting an error when filling out the survey because "the file is being modified by another user".

    This doesn't make any sense. A survey should allow completion by any number of users concurrently.

    I had to move my surveys to Google Docs in the meantime because of this issue. Hope it gets fixed soon!

  10. Online survey (form) - add header graphic and footer, or at least a text description as a question type

    Insert a graphic to a header and also have the option of choosing to insert a text description so that we can format sections or add instructions. Page breaks would be nice too, for those long surveys.

  11. Embedded SharePoint Online Excel file doesn't display horizontal scrollbar

    When embedding a Excel online file into normal CSS webpage using codes, Online Excel file doesn't display horizontal scrollbar.
    The only way to get to the data to the right of the view port is to click on a cell and then use the right arrow key to scroll to the right.

  20. Ensure submit is not activated by pressing enter

    Many users tend to press enter to go to a new line and then pressing it automatically submits their survey answers even if they aren't finished filling it out. The survey should only be submitted by clicking on a dedicated Submit button.
