SkyDrive Adds Recycle Bin and Excel Surveys
We’re also putting the final touches on adding Excel surveys to SkyDrive. Like the recycle bin, this has been a top request from students in particular, as they’re great for getting suggestions for a group project or party, collecting feedback or research results, running a competition, and much more. And unlike competing services, you can easily use the power of Excel Web App, Excel for Windows, or Excel for Mac to sort, analyze, or chart the results of your survey.
When these are released, all you will have to do is select “Excel survey” from the Create menu:
Then you’ll proceed through a set of steps to create the survey and each question has several options for different types of response that you want:
When you’re done, it takes just one click to share this survey with others and start collecting responses. We’re putting this through some final tweaks, and you should expect to see Excel surveys show up in your SkyDrive soon. We’ll let you know once it’s done.
So go and check SkyDrive for the recycle bin the next time you log in, and keep an eye out for Excel surveys soon!
