  1. Allow branching for rating questions

    It would be great to use this for questions like - please rate x service out of 5 stars - and then use branching to determine a follow up. For example - 4/5 stars would go to a text question about what they liked about it, and anything 3 below would go to a question - how can we improve?

  2. 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!"

  3. 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).

  4. 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.

  5. Advance Branching-Choose only few question from the pool of questions

    Choose only few questions from the pool of questions, like you have 30 Q's and for the test select randomly only 20.

  6. branching based on other questions results

    Instead of branching to a specific question based on a result, I would like to see a question or section appear in the survey only if the result of another question has a specific value. For instance, if a user chose "None of the above", I would like the user to be able to have another question to input the data that is missing.

  7. Form flicking to top of form when branching

    I have an issue with Branching. Every time I select a question with a branch on it, the branching works, but the form flicks to the top of the form, meaning I have to scroll down to the bottom of the form to continue. I have tested this with a simple form with just 6 questions and this still happens. But i am positive this was not happening last week. Has something changed?

  8. The branching option is not working as expected

    The branching option is not working as expected. For example, the answer at question 2 will reveal question 3 and 4 where the answer 2 is just branched to see question 4

  11. share themes between forms

    Allow to share custom themes between forms, so don't have to do the additional step of adding theme on every single form.

  12. I would like to be able to do a branching option for under rated net promotor responses

    When a net promoter survey is answered with a lower rating (1&2) I would like to be able to branch to another option of asking how it could improve, mandatory to respond for the 1&2 selections, and optional for the 3-5 higher rated selections.

  13. Branching Rule by Survey Variables

    Hi,

    Is it possible to create branching rules by Survey Variables?
    If there is not yet, I would like to suggest that option.
    It will be very help to show / hide the Questions by Survey Variables.

    Cheers,

  14. Add a feature for multiple selects.. to enable a reply comment next to each item selected.

    Add a feature for multiple selects.. to enable a reply comment next to each item selected.

    I have a form with a question where people can select multiple answers, i really need a feature where if someone selects 3 answers i get an option for them to enter a comment next to each answer they have selected.

  15. Improve Branching to include 'Skip Next Question' option.

    Currently, branching does NOT behave as expected. If you use branching more than once, the number sequencing of questions is offset if you are just trying to skip to the next question. This number offset increases with the number of times you branch. As a result, the incorrect question will be displayed next. The branching is referencing a static number rather than referencing RELATIVE to where you are in the list of questions. So this number becomes pointless after branching more than once. Seems like simple logic to me.

  16. "Try again option"

    Add an option where a incorrectly answered question gives a "error message" such as "Try again and require a correct answer before a respondent can proceed onto the next question. Already "doable" in google forms. Would love to see it in MS Forms

  18. Not have each likert question option count as single question.

    Not have each likert question option count as single question.

    Ex- evaluation survey where up to 30 speakers who each have 3-6 objectives are evaluated in a single survey. In this survey each speaker is a question with between 3 - 6 objectives as (options) The 100 question limit prevents me from using this product.
