Date Drop-down in Surveys
It would be great if you have a question such as "what was the date of the training session", to have a drop down calendar for the user to select the date. Currently seeing a lot of different date formats when we leave it to them to fill out. Skews the data for us in the back end.
We update the experience of Excel Survey with a new experience. Excel Survey will be powered by Microsoft Forms and will be renamed “Forms for Excel”. This update comes with a modern experience to make it simple and easy to collect information into Excel in real-time, with all Microsoft Forms features.

It would be great if you could provide feedback for us – https://aka.ms/excelsurveyfeedback
Absolutely NOT COMPLETED!!! Is this a reply of someone who thinks that only people in the US work with forms? Unfortunately the world has different date formats, even in one country if they operate with different settings in their OS. So please add a kind of Date Picker and solve the issue at collecting the data in the right format. Thank you !!
This should not be marked as completed. The date pickup would be very convenient in Excel surveys.
Please notre that Excel Forms are not synchronised as local worksheets on workstations.
Please get us some feed back !
This is not only relevant for convenience. I worked with a predefined list of dates, but I work on different computers (as my customers). Result was that I recieved different date formats!
I "solved" it by making the list like 1: 21-03-2017 2:22-03-2017 etc.
