    Is this link that is being generated constantly updated with new submissions? Or is it only capturing current submissions before the final step of the wizard report?

    In my form in the last item: the report includes payee info and payee address all in the last DInner Cost column. How do I get it to separate payee info and payee address into their own columns in xl sheet? Having it all in one column adds many keystrokes to get it to a workable size. Do like your app!

    We are currently running a Homecoming event with many single events held within it. Currently, it is dumping all the individual event information under one column of cells called "Events: Products. This means we have to look by hand to see which events the customer is signed up for and how many are attending each event. I need this information to be listed separately by each event and number attanding each event. Can this be done?

  • mrotjan

    It would be great if we could add a deliminiator for multiple select items to the excel report.

    Is there a way to create a report of only new submissions, i.e. those that were not pulled out in previous versions?

  • drwilburne

    Is it possible for the excel spreadsheet to separate selections with a comma when a user submits an answer with more than on answer? Example: Please select all counties that you serve. Mifflin, Juniata, Dauphin, Philadelphia, etc...

  • dreamforge

    Can I link this excel report to update automatically to my excel online account / MS sharepoint account - so that it shows latest data of all in one place so that I can share it?

  • prossmann

    Is there a way to format the Excel report so that columns are either left justified, or some are centered?

  • promisedlands

    I have multiple forms. Part of the filled in items are everytime the same (name, email, stuff like that).

    Can I change the order in the Excel reporting? For instance: I have 8 forms with different questions on each, but all have somewhere in the form a question about name and email. I want to generate excel reports for all 8 forms that I start everytime with the recurring data (name, email etc).

    When will you replace the manual process by an automatic data flow, as already exists for Google sheets?

  • NCUCapex

    When exporting my data into Excel, it presents the fields horizontally. Is there a way to present the information in Excel so that it presents the fields vertically? Example:
    Field 1 Field 2 Field 3
    Want it like this:
    Field 1
    Field 2
    Field 3
