  1. 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

      • Excel survey with automatic timestamp on each record

        When you get many responses it often is very important to understand WHEN a certain respons was submitted. For exampel if the same respondent has submitted multiple times and you want to sort out the last one of them....
        Add feature that automaically add a timestamp on each record.

        • it is would be better in Online Excel by giving a embedding code than giving a URL link

          it is would be better in Online Excel by giving a embedding code than giving a URL link. So that we can easily embedding the survey in our websites.

          • Excel Survey Improvements: Multi-Select for more than 2 items

            I need to be able to allow users to select more than 2 options. If you can't allow this can you add a custom checkbox option?

            • On the sharepoint page that links to an Excel Spreadsheet why not add the option to enter more data when finished?

              On sharepoint, survey link (not sure why it is called that), you input your data which automatically updates a spreadsheet when you click submit. As it is now you have to close the tab, go click the quick link again to open survey page, input data, click submit, close tab, etc...... until you have finished inputing all data. Why not give the option to add more data which would automatically bring up a blank survey entry sheet. Save us some time on out end.

              • Excel survey needs to capture email address/user name for respondant

                There doesn't appear to be a way to automatically capture the user name/email address of the respondent to an Excel O365 survey. This means I am having to create an extra question filled with people's names to capture this information which reduces the value of the survey.

                    • Enable Forms in Excel

                      Forms are not enabled with Excel enterprise version

                      I understand that it is available only with the School version

                      With forms its very easy to collect data, especially for surveys.

                          • 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!

                                    • 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...

                                      • 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!

                                        • Excel online survey form for mobile

                                          If the answer can only be a date then make a calendar appear to make it easier to select your answer. Having to use a virtual keyboard to type out a date is pretty troublesome especially for people who are accustomed to different date formats.
