A link is provided to share with people to respond. They don’t need to have Excel or Office365. Just a web browser. Try our sample by clicking the image below:

Shorten the URL

Excel provides a very long URL to share your survey. By using a site like bit.ly, you can create a shorter one to email to your contacts. This is important to avoid problems when URLs get word wrapped in emails. For instance, this survey is shortened to: http://bit.ly/2mfv56r

Results in Your Spreadsheet

The results go directly into your spreadsheet with each submission as a separate row:

Having the ability to create a survey and see the results in a spreadsheet in minutes, is a terrific tool to help your projects!
