    How can I download the form submissions in excel format, prioritizing an answer of a question, not the submission date?

    It would be easier to see the schools that have submitted the forms as a package, however since the members of the schools have submitted the forms in different times, the excel file is very untidy. How can I download the excel file with the first information belonging to another column?

    Hello keremk.  Unfortunately, this is not possible.  You can however hide other fields by clicking on the properties on the upper right part of the page, the gear icon.  Then uncheck the fields that you wish to be hidden such as the Submission Date. 

    Next, download your excel submissions.  You should be able to get the data that do not have the Submission Date.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.

    Thanks.
