  1. Branching options is not showing anymore

    Hi, It 's not an idea but an issue really. I used to have access for Branching and now it's not showing anymore.
    I tried to erase cache/cookies, different browser too but nothing.

    I also tried on settings but the " view all options" doesn't show either.
    I really need it as I change my form regularly and need that option.

    thank you for your help

  2. I suggest that when i branch a question, after selecting an option that leads to a branch number, other branched questions should not show

    Branching is supposed to limit users to only questions relevant to the options chosen, but when a question is branched users still get to see all the questions on the survey list.

    Users should only see questions applicable to their options after branching.

  3. Make it possible for users to modify the button text for next or submit for questions or sections.

    When creating a branch question I would like to return to the previous section if the question was answered incorrectly. This functionality works but it shows different buttons when I do this so the answers are easily given away. This is not useful.

  5. In forms, I would like to be able to use Branching to return the respondent back to the same question a second, third and fourth time.

    I need to create a form that respondent can return to the same question for a second, third, fourth time. Right now when I try to do this with branching, they get kicked out of the form instead of sent back to the preceding question.

  6. Date validation based on dates within the form

    I'd like to be able to validate dates within the form based on other dates within the form.

    e.g.

    When can you start? [Date]
    When will you finish? [Date]

    If Finish is before Start then display an error message "You can't finish before you start!"

    It will be very help to show / hide the Questions by Survey Variables.

    Cheers,

  9. Allow us to choose multiple branch for one answer when we use “Branch” in Forms

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Forms の "分岐" 機能で、1つの回答から移動先を複数指定できるようにして欲しい
    Allow us to choose multiple branch for one answer when we use “Branch” in Forms


    ■Description(内容):
    現時点での Forms にて "分岐" 機能を使用すると、1つの回答から1つの移動先しか設定ができないため、回答にすべて答えていかないと回答者に見せたい質問をすべて表示させるのに手間がかかる。
    1 つの回答で複数の移動先を指定できるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    In Microsoft Forms, when the form is used “Branch” feature and I want to show all questions to questioners, I need to answer all questions one by one because only one branch is available for one answer.
    Therefore, please allow us to choose multiple branch for one answer.

  10. 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…

  11. add a custom Thank You to Each branch

    When using branches, it would be great to have the option of multiple Thank You messages.
    e.g.
    3rd question ends the form: Thank you for your interest.
    OR
    it continues after 3rd question, once the form ends: Thank you for your responses......

  12. Return the logic and methodology of Branching back to how you had it previously

    The logic of initiating branching from the bottom of individual questions is bizarre - it made much more sense coming from the menu at the top as it is a whole of form function - not an individual question function.
    Maybe having what the branching, that has already been applied, visible at the bottom of each question would be a good idea though or if having it visible it can be edited as you progress editing questions rather than going into another page just to do branching

  14. Improve access to Branching Functionality

    When you've set-up branching functionality it is pretty difficult to modify things afterward as the "branching" command is NOT accessible anymore through the "Settings" menu. You need to go on a question and use the command "Add branching" to access again the branching options.
    That's cumbersome and not practical...! Thanks for the improvement work!

  15. Integrate Flow into Branching

    If flow can reach into the Form branching options imagine the possibilities…

    For example:
    Q. Do you like Green Eggs and Ham?

    A1. I do not like Green eggs and Ham. [Branch to next question – for example Here or There]

    A2. Say, I like Green Eggs and Ham. [Branch to a Flow trigger that opens a totally separate Form with 101 ways to prepare Green Eggs and Ham for your next event]

    This will also get around the 100-question limit because Forms can become interlinked with each other – and other Flows. Much easier to manage forms too.

  16. Allow for all answers to link to the person

    When branching, it would be nice to see all answers by the person that answered. This would be great especially when doing food orders that have a branching question like "what type of salad dressing". Most companies will allow you to text or email them a picture of the order. This would make that a lot easier.

  17. Branching condition Is selected works only if this specific value is selected.

    The Visibility of the questions is not working correctly.

    Ex: If value X is selected, show Questions 2

    If 2 values is selected the Questions doesnt show. It shows only if the selection is unique. Then if non are selected the quetsions doesn't hide. Even if the default is to hide the question,

  19. Next section

    Allow branching to "NEXT SECTION" without selecting a specific one. Just like an option for "next" question.

  20. In a question, allow a reference to a previous response

    For instance;
    Q1) Who takes out the trash?
    A1) Bob
    Q2) Does <A1> know to take out the trash?
