    How can I ask coworkers a question in Outlook 2007 (using checkboxes probably) so they can choose multiple answers? The question is: How many Canadian Capital Cities have you visited? Then I would have the cities listed in the email. Therefore, I can't use the Voting buttons because that only gives the person one choice to choose.

    not seeing that it is possible in outlook.....everything I am seeing states you need to use a different app and attach it (such as Excel or PP) or create multiple emails.....

    If you have InfoPath as part of your Office suite, you can create a form in it and send the form as the body of the email message.

    Did you know you can do this with the Excel web app? Did you know it's also free for everyone? If you have a Hotmail/Live/etc, go to your SkyDrive and create a new Excel file. You'll find the survey on the ribbon. Then share which whomever you want.

    Heya! Always nice to see some friendly faces! You going to the Summit?

    @claudinemurray: You could always use custom voting options with ranges if you want. For instance: 1-10;11-20;20-30. Not sure what you're looking for as far as options.

    Hi Wendy! The Excel web app is constantly evolving. It's like this little hidden gem the Excel team keeps working on and continuously updates. To see the latest take a look at their blog:

    http://blogs.office.com/b/microsoft-excel/

    In fact, the most recent blog details how they now have implemented data validation in the web app - previously thought impossible!
