1) Create a Group Form ("Original form")

1a) get responses (saved as Excel in the root of the Groups SP doc library)

 

2) Copy Group Form (initially named "Original form (2)"

2a) rename form ("new form")

2b) edit form

2c) collect responses

 - Problem: the Excel file saved here is called "Original form (2).xlsx" not "new form.xlsx"

 

This is a bug the Forms team is working on.... yes?????

Such an old question, no reply and no change of functionality?

 

I have a similar problem with using a form template, which defines the name of the Excel file to collect the responses in.

Can I connect another excel file, rename the excel file?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Best regards!
