  1. Allow Survey

    I am not sure about this feature, but is there a way of knowing who responds to the survey (email address)?

    If not, It would be totally useful, as some folks don't want to add their email information and then they are removed from the survey for that reason- who knows who to send the results to, in my case...

    • option to include DateTime stamp for when Survey is filled out

      Please include the option to have the spreadsheet behind the survey populate with the datetime that the survey entry had been submitted. This is a Google Forms feature that is incredibly handy.

      • Survey Description Is Too Short

        The description for the overall survey (not each individual question) is too short. You need to be able to say a blurb about the survey or how to rate the questions. If it's more than a couple of lines of text, it gets cut off which makes the survey useless to a user.

        • Scale Option in Survey

          Surveys need a Scale for the answer type. IE...scale of 1-5 where you can specify the low and high end of the scale.

                • increase character limit on choice options in Excel Survey

                  When providing the options for an Choice question in an Excel Survey I found out that there is a character limit to the input box where you provide the options. Seems like this limit is around 1000 characters, which is far too little for providing full overviews of countries, products, models and many more categories that many companies have in their datasets and would like to incorporate in surveys.
