    Dear Forms customers,

    Thanks for your patience for the long wait on file upload.

    We work closely with SharePoint team to provide a secured and compliant file upload service. It takes longer time than we expected due to the technical complexity. 

    We will reactive the project soon. It would be great if you could share more detail with us. This survey may take you about 3 minutes to finish.

    Thank you for your time!

  2. 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.

  3. Transfer of ownership

    Add ability to transfer ownership of form to another person. Useful for when a person leaves the company or changes roles and form ownership needs to transfer to another person.

    Dear Forms customers:

    In addition to transferring forms to a group of your choice, the company’s administrator can now have better data management with the admin ownership transfer capability. When an employee leaves the company or an account is de-activated, the global administrator can prevent data loss by moving the forms to the administrator’s account.

    Now Forms support move “My From” to “Group Form”, as well as admin ownership transfer. Please take this survey and let us know with these features meet your asks – https://aka.ms/formstransfer.

    Regards,
    Microsoft Forms Team

  4. 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

  5. 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.

  6. Print the Form (not only results, just the empty form)

    The empty form in Forms would be possible to print or export as an PDF.

  7. To have options for creating folders in Forms.

    I suggest Microsoft Forms team to think of an option to create folders and then create forms in it.

    So that I can have all the forms related to one activity in one folder and also searching becomes easy.

    Moreover, the dashboard looks clutter free.

    Kindly give a thought.

    tell us more  ·  ruoyingl responded

    Thanks all for your feedbacks and suggestions. As you may noticed, we’ve added two features to help you find target forms easier:
    1. Search box. You can find a form by search the form name or form owner.
    2.Form’s theme is shown in form card. If you are using different themes for different type of forms, it’s easier to find out forms by color.

    Does the new feature help? Could you tell us more if the new feature doesn’t solve your problem?

  8. 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,

  9. 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

  10. Allow for a dropdown box

    It would be nice to have a drop down box for users to be able to select one or more choices instead of having to look at a long list of options. It makes the survey appear longer than it is and crowds the page.

  11. Allow pre-populated data via URL parameter

    It would be helpful to be able to add a GET value to the share link to provide default answers to questions. E.g., ?q1=default&q2=default2

  13. Branding improvement - Custom theme, logo, background image, header, CSS

    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.

  14. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. Ability to change date format to correspond to the user's region

    Hi. In the question type where a date is required currently the only option (as far as I can see) is the US format. Can you kindly give us the ability to choose the region settings for this please? Thanks.

  18. Allow form respondents to save and continue to fill the form later

    Allow students to save results without submitting test for students with accommodations to finish later. Students with extended time sometimes have to finish at a later time and the way it is set up now they have to restart the test each time.

  19. Edit Response

    Allow responders to edit responses after submission. For example, if a student is taking a quiz and is unable to finish before the end of class, the student can submit the quiz to save their answers and then continue the quiz during the next class period.
