  1. 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.

    • It would be great to have a progress bar

      It would be really nice to have a built in progress bar so people could see how much of a survey they have left

      • Add ability to insert sections 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.

        • 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.

          • 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

              • 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.

                  • Make the branching functionality more obvious when building questions, especially on the first question.

                    When designing questions, it should be obvious that branching is possible - this affects how questions are written. There should be some connection to it near the actual question creation. Either a direct option to branch from there, or a pointer to find the branching ability.

                    • Have the ability to disable external sharing

                      Have the ability to disable external sharing completely which includes anonymous links. Currently the option in the admin center for external collaboration is turned off, however we can still share a form using the anonymous links with external users so an option to truly disable external sharing would be good.

                      • 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 form responses to be sent to an email or multiple emails. we are trying to use microsoft form instead of google docs to no avail

                          My school wants to use microsoft form instead of google docs since our district is pushing the use of microsoft office products however the microsoft form does not allow you to send form responses to an email or to multiple emails. We want to be able to enter teacher feedback into the form and email the responses to the teacher, assistant principal and principal. Currently google docs allows us to email the form responses and chart our entries. Microsoft form using flow will only allow you to get a notification that a response has been entered which does us no…

                            • Allow Ability to Auto-Fill/Pre-Fill answers

                              Google Forms has an ability to Pre-Fill answers. You can even edit the Pre-Fill link to even change which Strings you would like to import.

                              This is done in Google Forms by assigning each Question a unique ID # and you can easily manipulate what you want the Answer to say by changing the ID #'s Pre-fill data.

                              I feel like Microsoft Forms should be able to implement something similar. I know a lot of businesses would like to import data quickly as well.

                                  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.

                                    • Integrate Forms with SharePoint.

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

                                      • Allow Form to be added as web part

                                        I am not sure if it possible currently or not. Is it possible to add Forms created as web part on SharePoint pages? If we can add the quiz created as web part on SharePoint pages, it would really be helpful.

                                          Thanks for your suggestion!

                                          SharePoint page support embed content. Currently you can copy the embed code of a form (click “Share” button, select “Embed” in “send and collect responses” section ) and past the code to SharePoint. The form will show as a web part on Sharepoint page.
                                          We will continue thinking about improving the experience.

                                        • Registration Form

                                          It would be nice to have an option that allows you to upload an ICS (calendar appointment) so the event (or session) can download it and added to their calendars
