  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  4. A method to resend a survey

    There does not seem to be a method of resending a survey or edit a survey after you have saved it. Is that the case or am I missing something.

  6. unsupported feature survey

    Enable basic features to support pivot tables and charts as well as slicers to create reports based on the survey data. Currently, the survey forms gets disabled if such reports are created.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. When using Excel online Survey it would be ideal to be able to change the font of the questions.

    I will be using the Survey in Excel online with K-5 students so to have the survey look appealing for this age group would be a big advantage.

  11. The ability to add a default value/equation

    For example: Every survey submission shows up with a user defined cell attached in the excel (e.g. the average of two values is included automatically in-line).
    This would let you automatically do some analysis on incoming data, which is extra helpful if you have a large number of people also viewing the results of the survey.

  14. excell servays need to have option to show admin the stitics of responses

    Can you add a way to show total amount of responses for multiple choice questions to show how many for each and a percentage of total respinses. Also can there be a advanced option added as well to allow multiple choice questions to all users to slect 2 or more answers. Also can there be a way to open and close servay responses as well like how google does it so that there is some control and time stamp all responses.

  16. survey form save button and return to survey

    There are times when I have a lengthy survey. One page is too long and the user may not have the time to complete the survey in one sitting. The ability to save the survey would be helpful. Perhaps the user could enter their name & email address and then receive a link in their email to return and complete the survey. This feature should be part of the survey design setup when creating the form.

  17. 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.
