  1. Carry down answers from one question, into the next

    Add the ability to carry down answers from one question onto the next. e.g. "Which communications channels do you use?" [tick all that apply] then the next question populates with those answers and asks you "How effective do you feel each of these channels is?" [then scale of 1 - 10 for each one]

  2. Support branching based on answer to checkbox question

    While branching is great, it lacks support for questions based on multiple answer questions. Here is what I envision:

    First, we create a new type of content, called a “part”. A “part” can contain anything a form can currently contain. A part is associated to a specific question when the part is created. Each section within the part “can” be associated with any of the answers to the question in the “part”.

    (Standard logic is also applicable within the part, and sections do not “need” to be associated to answers.)

    This way, you can use the “Go to” feature any…

  3. 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!"

  4. go to and count

    I would like to cycle through a number of questions three times and tally the responses. So a 'go to' and 'count'.
    eg after Q6 go to Q2, count 3 times then end form. Meanwhile tally all
    responses in Q2-Q6.

  5. Branching function in forms should have a 'copy down' feature.

    Branching function in forms should have a 'copy down' feature. This way if the next step is the same on each row, you do not spend time click on each and every row choosing the same thing.

  6. Have a way to set the default branching for all options within a question

    Currently the default is Next and if I need to set all the options to skip a question I have to manually set all the branching destination.
    Suggest to have a Goto input next to the question which will set the Goto for all the options for the questions

  7. Clear data in branched subquestion if controlling question/response is deselected

    When question is shown due to branching and a response is made to this - then this response should be cleared if branching rule no longer is true. Right now it is just hided, but the response remains.

  8. Branching within Likert Questions

    my Idea is to have branching withing Likert question.
    For example-
    1.Are you satisfied with below tools-

                       Yes   No
    

    MS Project
    MS Excel
    Teams
    2. Why you are not satisfied?
    ( TEXT)

    so, in this scenarios , there should be a option , if User is not happy with MS excel and he will select NO, its should go to question 2 ( Why?). If user is satisfied with all the tools , then it should take him/her to end of form.

  9. Allow branching

    A serious forms-tool should contain some way of branching. Depending on answers jump certain questions or go to a certain area of questions. Branching is currently failing from Forms

  10. don't make the view scroll all the way up the document when switching to branching mode.

    It's annoying to have to scroll all the way down to the question you're working on when opening Branching mode.
    It looks like this happens because clicking 'Branching' goes to a new view.
    I feel like there should be a switching mechanism to go from 'Editing' to 'Branching' mode on the same page, rather than having a new view for Branching.

  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. Better visibility and behavior during branching by making a flowchart option

    If the branching tool has the option to display as a flowchart you would get better visibility on path that u create, also by making it function like a flowchart you would get a better grasp on what questions will be shown and which will be hidden.
    Because right now you don't know which questions will be shown when you have a big form with multiple big branches.

  14. 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.

  15. Make it possible to insert sections and also work with branches in the same time

    Right now when working with sections we can not insert branches. It would be great if both features would be possible in the same survey.

  17. A max amount of submissions

    So you can set a limit for the amount of people that can apply for a event, for as is we need to send email manually to three groups, one for people who can come, 1 for people who will pay a discounted price to come and 1 for people who can't come. a bunch of extra work. So if i could set a limit for the amount of submissions i could at least send out one less email.

  18. provide the facility to produce a flow diagram of the branching, together with the numbers/responses down each branch

    I have just created my own on Excel, and it is really helpful to see the complete picture and options, especially when it is a Form created by someone else. The numbers and responses down each branch would really aid understanding the demand too

  20. Add a feature that makes subsequent questions dependent on previous answers

    There should be a way to base the questions that a respondent sees on what their answer to a previous multiple choice question was.

    Ex:

    You are doing a lunch survey and provide 20 different options in question 1 and ask which top 5 people would be interested in.

    Of the interested ones, you want to see which are the top 5 and their relative rankings within top 5 (1=least preferred, 5=most preferred).

    You don't care about the other 15 that were in the original question and therefore adding a feature that takes the 5 that people originally chose and…
