Supported file formats
Microsoft Excel (xlsx)
Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program developed by Microsoft for Windows, macOS, Android and iOS. Files exported with this format are supported in a huge variety of programs such as Excel by Microsoft, Numbers by Apple, Google Sheets, Open Office by Apache, and many more.
This file format features calculation, graphing tool and more.
Microsoft Excel (xls)
This is an older version of xlsx format explained above. xls has a significantly larger file-size compared to xlsx format, takes longer time to export, and therefore is not suitable for surveys with large quantity of data.
CSV or comma-separated values (CSV) file is a delimited text file that uses a comma to separate values. A CSV file stores tabular data (numbers and text) in plain text. Each line of the file is a data record. Each record consists of one or more fields, separated by commas.
Note that the CSV file format is not fully standardized. The basic idea of separating fields with a comma is clear, but that idea gets complicated when the field data may also contain commas or even embedded line-breaks. Thus, it may not be a suitable format for all surveys.
ODS or Open Document Spreadsheet is a spreadsheet file format, developed by OpenDocument XML.org, which is a standard format for office applications. The file format makes transformations to other formats simple by leveraging and reusing existing standards wherever possible.
PDF or Portable Document Format developed by Adobe, is a widely used format that enables users to exchange and view electronic documents independent of the environment in which they were created or the environment in which they are viewed or printed. Files exported in this format cannot be easily edited or used in data analytics programs for statistical purposes. But they are great if you want to share the data with others.
Currently you can export the each individual response, or each individual data table in Live Analytics in PDF format.
