  1. Branching Simplicity

    In the "Pro" preview, branching has been over complicated. The basic, current branching option is much easier to use, and makes more sense to the end user.

  2. Add if-then conditions

    We need to have the ability to create a condition that routes the responder to a specific question based on the answer to a question.

    Example.
    Do you live in California?

    If "yes" direct to next question
    If "No" direct to end of form

  4. Random

    Ability to random show X out of Y questions in a grouping.

    Sometimes you want to know answers to a bunch of questions, but you don't necessarily need everyone to answer the same questions as that gets tedious for the respondent. Having the ability to have 50% of respondents each answer 1 of 2 questions, or 25% of respondents each answer 1 of 4 questions can give you important feedback without being onerous.

  5. Branch to new form

    The option to branch to a new form instead of a new question.

    I have a lot of CPQ oriented forms to figure out what kind of solution our customer needs. There is a lot of overlap in these forms. So when there is a change in configuration, all forms need to be checked and adjusted.

    I would like to have the option to re-use forms / questions just like functions and methods in scripting. That if a component of a solution changes, all forms automatically change the related questions.

  6. It would be helpful to be able to add multiple pages.

    It would be helpful to be able to add multiple pages to be able to split up and branch responses accordingly.

  7. Only one question posted at a time

    When branching, have the option to show only one question at a time. for example, question 1 is a multiple choice that lets the user pick a writing topic. Selection branches to the writing prompt question and only shows that question and text entry with option to submit, so user does not need to scroll through all of the other questions to submit.

  8. 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......

  9. Hide only the questions which branched from the original question in Surveys

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    分岐先の質問のみ非表示にして、他の質問は表示できるようにしてほしい

    Hide only the questions which branched from the original question in Surveys


    ■Description(内容):
    Forms で質問に分岐設定をした場合、分岐設定した質問以降が非表示となります。
    これを分岐先の質問のみを非表示として、分岐と関係がない質問は、最初から表示できるようにしてほしい

    When we set branching option to a question in Microsoft Forms, the following questions which have not set the branching option will be hidden automatically until responders finish answering the branching set question.

    In order to improve usability, it will be great if the following questions without branching option would be displayed on the screen. We would like to hide only the questions which branched from the original question so that responders can see how many questions are on…

  10. #5 receives my top vote. I see branching based on the question, but not on the response to the question. For example, if the answer is "Yes"

    5 receives my top vote. I see branching based on the question, but not on the response to the question. For example, if the answer is "Yes" to Question 1, I'd like the user to be routed to Question 2. If the answer to Question 1 is "No", I'd like the user to be routed to Question 3 and to bypass Question 2. Is that already possible?

  11. expand branching function

    Allow the branching option to be set to return to the same question so the responder can keep changing their response until the correct answer is attained.

  13. Guardar y compartir. Dos nuevas mejoras necesarias

    Creo que es necesario que implementéis dos nuevas características en forms.
    En primer lugar hace falta poder COMPARTIR cuestionarios.
    En segundo lugar sería muy bueno almacenar cuestionarios en carpetas. En cuanto que llevas dos o tres te pierdes si los quieres recuperar.

  14. Add branching option to each multiple choice answer when set to multiple answers.

    Add branching option to each multiple choice answer when set to multiple answers. Or the ability to build questions into multiple choice questions off of selected answers.

    Instead of having it redirect to branched question right away, have multiple choice in separate section, then each selected options branched questions show up in order all together.

  15. Branching based on the Likert Scale / Rating Scale value that is selected

    Allow branching depending on the value selected in a Likert Scale. This would enable those who respond e.g. 1 to 3 (negatively) on a 7 point scale to be routed to one set of questions, whilst those that respond e.g. 5 to 7 (positively) to be routed to another set of questions.
    This could be extended to the ratings scales and NetPromoter score system as well. Great app.

  17. 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!"

  18. randomization

    Major survey providers, such as Qualtrics and SurveyMonkey, allow random assignment to branches of the survey, which allows one to run experiments (e.g., A|B testing, or A|B|C, etc).

  19. Data validation: Change data validation based on previous question i.e.

    Change data validation for next question based on answer to previous question. i.e.

    Question 1:

    What is your business unit?
    A. Unit 1
    B. Unit 2

    Question 2:

    If Unit 1 was chosen then:
    A. Americas North
    B. Americas South

    If Unit 2 was chosen:
    A. Europe North
    B. Europe South

    Branching does not work effectively. You would have to create 2 questions for the same question. This also impacts the excel output.
