  1. Enable attaching the files to the Answer fields of the form of Microsoft Forms.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名): Microsoft Forms の回答にファイルを添付する機能について

    Enable attaching the files to the Answer fields of the form of Microsoft Forms.
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Forms のフォームの回答欄に、現在はファイルを添付する機能が実装されていない。
    ファイルを添付する機能が実装されれば、フォームでお客様から情報をお寄せいただく際にとても便利になるので、是非機能として実装してほしい。​

    Currently, we are concerned that the users cannot attach the files to the Answer fields of the form of Microsoft Forms by now. If it becomes possible, we feel its more convenient when collecting information from the customers. It will be grateful if we could apply the "Attachment" feature through Microsoft Forms.

    Thank you for your consideration.

    • 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

        • Allow text and Images between questions

          You should be able to place text or an image between questions. This text is unrelated to a question and allows to have headers for different sections. This is the major sticking point

          • A on/off switch for the message 'Your response is anonymous'

            I think it would help if the creator of the Form can decide whether the 'Your response is anonymous' message is needed or not. Because sometimes, we will be sharing the survey to external but still we want them to fill in their name and this message up front is confusing them.

            • Create option to allow respondents to edit their responses, especially if the option "single response only" is applied.

              In the "Who can fill out this form?" option in the Settings, there is a checkbox you can select to limit one response per person. If tick, the user can only submit one response. If not tick, the user can submit multiple responses.
              I think there's a need to create an option to allow respondents to edit their responses, whether the "one response per person" is use or not.

              • 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…

                • Provide a quicker way to add multiple options in an "option" style question

                  Many times, the list of options for a question of type "option" comes from some external source. Occasionally there are relatively many options (e.g.: a list of class members)
                  At this time, the only way to add them, is to repeatedly click "add option" and enter the text.
                  It should not be hard to create a way to paste a delimited text that adds all "items" as options to the question (and from there on, it's probably not hard to create even better options).

                  Note: even better would be if you could point Forms to an existing file (e.g. some…

                  • SAVE/PRINT button before submitting

                    Since once the form is submitted, respondents cannot view the form again, it would be very beneficial to provide a SAVE/PRINT button next to the SUBMIT button.

                          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.

                          • Ability to turn share a survey outside organization without form being marked Anonymous

                            We are using the form as a guest survey that requires a name and contact information be provided. We offer a prize incentive for anyone completing the survey and need a way to contact the winners.
                            People are confused by the form having a subheading that says "Your response is anonymous" but the first question requires them to identify themselves.
                            It would be great to be able to turn that marking off or on depending on the intended use of the form.

                                • 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…

                                  • Add a column that shows the total points available, or percent correct when exporting a quiz to Excel.

                                    We are trying to migrate from another platform to Microsoft Forms, but the Quiz results, when exported to Excel, do not indicate the total number of points available for a quiz. They sum the total points scored, but without knowing the number of points that could be scored outside of Excel, there's no way to calculate an actual score (percentage correct) from the Excel export. The percentage is shown in the web view of the quiz results, so it should be pretty easy to include that as part of the export.

                                    Thanks!

                                      • remove the "create your own form" link once a response has been submitted

                                        Once a response has been submitted, an option to "create your own form" is provided. Suggestion would be to remove this and only accept responses from this link vs. creating a new survey.

                                        • Custom CSS Styling

                                          Give control of the form header for custom background and font styling. Allow fonts sizes and colors to be set.

                                          • Don't see your idea?

                                          How it works

                                          • Create a user account if you want to add a new suggestion or vote on existing suggestions.
                                          • Select one of the feedback forums listed.
                                          • Check out the ideas others have suggested and vote on your favorites.
                                          • Be sure to search for your suggestion but if you can’t find something similar enough, you can submit your own.
                                          • Keep suggestions focused on a single idea per post and limited to 25 words or less.
                                          • When you post an idea to our forum, others will be able to subscribe to it and make comments.
