    • Take Forms to the next level

      This would be invaluable with a few additions:

      1) Checkboxes (not just radio)
      2) email alerts when completed to Form owner(s)
      3) Ability to attach files (20-50mb)
      4) Ability to turn completed forms into tasks or "to do lists"
      5) "if this... then" when creating the questions would be great. So some questions might "unlock" other questions.(slightly different than branching).
      6) ability to link dates to a shared calendar (making due dates and reminders possible

      • ability to e-mail user's responses back them

        ability to e-mail user's responses back them, of course the user has to put the e-mail as on of the questions. Also a way to put this at the end of form. "A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided." MICROSOFT FORMS MUST be better than Google forms/surveys! Google forms has that option. See example.

        • More Field Types

          More types of fields with richer options must be available.
          If Forms is meant to compete with market leaders in this sector, it cannot offer just 4 types of fields it currently offers. See attached screen shots of how many types of field other services are offering.

          Also, you need richer options. For example: you cannot offer only one type of date formatting. We use dd/mm/yyyy in Europe. Americans use the mm/dd/yyyy. The form creator must be able to define the desired format.

          In general, we need more types of fields and more advanced control options for each type of…

          • Add Check Box

            Add an option for a simple check box instead of just radio button selections. This would be more useful when creating a true form type entry and not a quiz or survey where you may have multiple choice.

            • Have "Add comments" on Forms

              After each Question, I would love to have a " Add Comment" section so that the answerer can put a comment/explanation for his/her answer.

              • Add ability to insert sections, titles and instructional text

                Make it possible to add sections (Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3) before or between questions, with the ability to provide "sub-title" text. For example, a section providing instructions for the next few questions.

                    • Advanced Branching -Enable ability to skip/hide questions

                      Currently, branching works best when only two branches exist. Forms should be able to support more than two branches for a question. The end goal is to hide all irrelevant questions based on a user's response to a previous question.

                      Below is a example question for this use case:
                      Q: Please select your preference below.
                      1. Option A
                      2. Option B
                      3. Option C
                      4. No Preference

                      Expected Functionality:
                      If "No Preference" is selected, I want to skip to the end of the form.

                      If "Option A" is selected, I want to skip to a specific question. The same is…

                      • Print MS Forms with Answer Choices Showing

                        Teachers need to be able to Print the Form with Answer choices showing so that students without internet can take the quiz. Sometimes students forget their laptops or do not have access to the internet and need to take a quiz. This would allow them to have a paper copy as well as the online version.

                        • Allow the full form to be sent via email. 50%+ higher response rates when the survey is in the email body, saving respondents a click.

                          Include the survey/form within the body of an email message in addition to the link to the survey. Response rates are higher when participants can respond from within the body of an email message.

                            The ease of use Forms provide would make building request apps, approval apps, and calendar apps much easier.

                                • Non-question fields and Auto-fill date

                                  Make it possible to add text that isn't a question so that I can add links/paragraphs that are not linked to a question. Also make it possible to autofill the date of the response, so the date is correct. If I have to rely on my students to fill in the correct date, it doesn't always work out.

                                    Could be really cool to redirect the user at the end of the survey/quiz to a custom URL. (for example a SharePoint page giving details on the next steps...)

                                    • Custom Theme or Designs

                                      Would like to be able to customize colors, background images, fonts, of all sections of forms. Would really like to be able to change the header to include a full width image option, and to be able to remove text and their spaces in areas that do not require them.

                                      If we could design and upload our own complete themes that would be wondrous, but any type of customizing to help with the overall design would be great.

                                      • Connect results to Excel as a data source rather than opening a new workbook each time

                                        The form is great in terms of collecting responses. That said, if you need to view all the data at once, you need to open the form results in Excel. If you do that, it appears to open a separate result each time. There is no way to edit the results workbook. For example, I want to add a column to the results where I can keep track of whether or not I have contacted the person since they have filled out the form. If I add that column to the table, it will be gone when I next click…

                                          Hi Forms users,

                                          Thanks for using Microsoft Forms and providing feedback.

                                          We just enabled a new feature “Forms for Excel” for all Microsoft Forms customers. When you create Forms for Excel in your OneDrive for Business / modern SharePoint team sites, you will get an Excel workbook at the same time. All the responses data will show up in your Excel workbook in real time.

                                          You could get more detail from – https://aka.ms/formsforexcel

                                          Please be free to leave comments if you have any question.

                                          Regards,
                                          Microsoft Forms Team
