    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

            • 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

              • 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?

                • 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.

                  • 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.

                      • 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…

                        • 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.

                              • 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…

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Allow the ability to create page breaks in the form to enhance the branching feature.

                                          Add a page break feature so that you can separate questions in a longer survey. This will also enhance the branching feature by allowing questions to "jump" to a defined page.
