Missing fields from MS forms


I have made to move the location of the excel sheet which houses the responses to my form made on Microsoft forms. After doing this it no longer automatically populates the spreadsheet with the answers.

So i am creating an automate flow to insert new answers into the sheet - but there are details missing from the response details.

There is no option to add in the data for 'Start time' & 'Name' (the name it automatically collects from the user submitting if part of your organisation).


How do you get these details to show up in the flow so i can direct them to the correct column in the excel file?

For an issue like yours, it may be helpful to review some existing Microsoft documentation (i.e. How to get missing data in Forms ) as well as reading some existing solutions to missing MS Forms (i.e. Microsoft Forms Dynamic Content Fields Not Appearing ).


With the MS Forms and flows associated with creating new records, test the flow and see where the error is. Maybe test enabling some individual settings on the form itself. Worst-case scenario, re-create some of the components and see if the issue resolves itself.
