Microsoft introduces Excel Surveys in SkyDrive

Microsoft on its blog, today announced a new feature with SkyDrive. The new feature will allow users to create Excel based surveys which can be useful to plan events or projects.

How Excel Surveys work:

  • Simply login to your SkyDrive account online at
  • Click on create button at the top and select “Excel Survey” from the dropdown.

  • Name the survey and create a questionnaire.

Add Questions to Excel Survey

  • The file can then be shared with anyone via a short URL. All the data entered and collected through the survey is neatly tabulated into a excel file.

Google Drive (previously Docs) also has a similar option of creating questionnaires and collecting information in a feature called ‘Forms’.

I have personally not been able to test out Excel Survey completely for all its features as Microsoft will be rolling it out over the day. If I find something, I will surely update it here or in a new post.
