    Hello everyone,

    Can someone tell how can I have my Forms responses excel sheets the way I want (i.e. only include fields that shows up in the form)?
    Is there any way to override button (Export as excel) functionality, or add another button with custom export logic?
    Please let me know if any way is this possible.

    Thank you

    This has bugged me since release, I think I might have a PITS issue as well

    1) Column data users didn't add, they don't want to see on export
    2) Columns use the developer name instead of the "friendly" name...so you end up with potentially unreadable results.

    Using the forms manager it should be doable to write your own export button, but I'd personally much rather it see some love and get fixed.

    Hello guys,

    We don't offer such functionality at the moment, and since I couldn't find the PITS item Steve mentioned about, I've logged it as feature request. Here's the link to PITS.

    All the best,
