    • Survey replies time

      Dear team!

      Can I have an option to see at what time the reply was received. This is because I am receiving revised replies from my audience and after sorting data, I will not be able to see which reply was latest.

            • koop een ander systeem; dit is het ALLERSLECHTE SYSTEM WAT IK OOIT HEB GEZIEN!!

              Dit is het ALLERSLECHTSTE waar ik ooit mee heb gewerkt.
              Mijn advies: onmiddelijk een ander system aanschaffen en het huidige EXCEL on line eruit gooien ; vreselijk wat een tijd de mensen verdoen omdat het systeem gewoon niet werkt ; wat extreem slecht; geen woorden voor..

              • Privileges appear to be removed on users who had privilege to access , Need a mechanism to update users when privileges are revoked.

                  • Let the link for accessing an Excel Online form work for the iOS.

                    I have a link for using an Excel survey form; however, it only works on my PC and through browsers. It doesn't work for the iOS though.

                      • Survey option is very good, but please improve the aesthetics

                        Survey option is very good, but the aesthetics are not so good. It would also be nice to have lots of customizable features, sort of like Google Forms.

                          • Pass Data into Forms/Surveys

                            Surveys would be more useful if they had the ability to utilize hidden fields / accept input data from a query string. This would allow the survey form to be personalized rather than completely anonymous.
                            For instance if I send survey (url) to an individual it would be nice to prepopulate data with their name, or send and ID value that is not viewed in the form but is stored in the response data so that response data can be queried rather than copying the same form for multiple category.
                            ie. currently 1 form = response results from surveys sent…

                              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.

                                1. While typing a question, AI should prompt me the type of field, I should use. Example: for Age, Marks, Heights, Weight etc. the default field it should select as Number.

                                2. The survey form is more like a simple database form. Rather, it should help an ordinary persons to create his/her own survey / opinion form. Example: It should have rating scale, checkbox, radio button etc with help and prompt.

                                • 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

                                    • 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.

                                          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!
