    We hope for a feature to fix the question number if branching settings are made


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Forms にて質問に対し分岐設定を行うと、選択したオプションにより分岐設定以降の質問番号が変動する。
    例として、分岐設定にてオプション 1 選択時は "Next"、オプション 2 選択時は "3 番目の質問" を設定した場合、オプション 2 を選択すると、本来は "3 番目の質問" が質問番号 2 として表示される。
    分岐設定を行っても質問番号を固定する機能の拡充を希望します。
    When branch setting is made for a question in Microsoft Forms, the question number after branch setting varies depending on the selected option.
    For example, if "Next" is set when option 1 is selected and "3rd question" is set when option 2 is selected in branch setting, when option 2 is selected, the "3rd question" will be displayed as…

  3. Show all questions past first branching question

    Currently, the survey only shows all questions until the first branching question and then it stops. If I have questions after the branching sequence that aren't part of the branching, you can't see them. It makes the survey look very short and is deceiving. It would be better to have an option to show all non-branching questions from the beginning.

  4. add an option to have survey go back to first question if they choose a certain answer

    In my form I have a specific question that, if the person taking it chooses a certain answer, it goes to a message telling them to complete a task before submitting the form. A submit button appears under this message, which is contrary to the message. Maybe create a way to change that submit button to link back to the first question of the survey.

    When branching settings are configured as shown below, question 2 will be skipped and not displayed (it shows up for other companies' products). When I migrate from other companies' products I hope for everything to work in the same manner, so I request for the question to be displayed.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  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

  11. Branching rules that can compare ratings in previous questions

    Example: If I have a survey that contains questions asking to rate two different products on a scale, and the respondent rates product A higher than product B, I'd like to branch to specific questions about why A is better.

    If they rate B higher than A, I'd like to branch to specific questions about why B is better.

    If they rate them the same, I'd like to skip the specific questions entirely.

  12. Multiple Thank You messages

    I would like to make a form to help users choose the correct course. Depending on their answers to questions about their current knowledge and skills, they should then get a (Thank you) message suggesting the best course for them to attend.

  13. The previous question answered shouldn't be visible under branching. Also the questions should be auto/randomly selected under branching.

    Under branching each question unfolds as per the sequence.The question should follow the sequence but the answered question should be hidden after the response is given. This option is helpful especially when you don't want the respondent to change the response.

    Also for every respondent the branching pattern should be different.

  14. You should be able to base your branching off if students got the question correct or incorrect.

    When you create a quiz question where multiple answers must be selected to get full credit you should be able to say they must select all of them to move on. Now you have to select it by answer choice. Thanks!

  15. create a loop for for logging additional entries

    The end of my form needs to allow the user to add an additional entry.
    With that loop, I want the additional set of data to be tied to this record,
    not submit and enter a new one.

  16. True Branching


    1. True Branching
      a. Example:
      i. 20 total questions on a Form.
      ii. Initially ONLY question 1 is VISIBLE
      iii. Question 1 is a dropdown with 10 options.
      iv. DEPENDING on question 1 selection, question 2 becomes visible.
      v. Example:

    2. Question 1 (only question visible on the Form):
      a. “What new feature most excites you?”

    3. User Selection:
      a. “Cloud computing”

    4. Question 2 becomes visible:
      a. “How do you see cloud computing affecting your business?”

    5. If User Selection of Question 1 was instead: “Hardware”

    6. Question 2 would be:
      a. “Which hardware applications are you pursuing?”

  17. branching options

    Branching answer.

    If you select an specific answer, then another related question will be respond, for example:

    If you know that white means 0, orange means 20, red means 50 and black means 100, you can answer white an the next question would be automatically select as 0.

    This is really useful when you are making forms.

  18. allow us to change the text in the other field multiple choice

    Instead of just putting other in the other field answer, we should be allowed to change that text that is displayed. For instance i want to collect an account number for billing purposes, but only if it is not billed to other predefined choices.

    Also, if we could have a drop down if one item is selected that would also solve the problem. for example a conditional response that requires additional input. or branching to more choices.

  19. hierarchical branching

    When completing a survey it may be necessary to rank some responses and then question each of those responses. This means that returning to the lead question becomes conditional on other responses having already been made. Therefore in the example If the user chose A as the first option, returning to the question would leave only options B, C and D (i.e conditional responses available since one response has already been selected). This would avoid having to duplicate questions, and would make the results far easier to analyse in Excel. It would also mean that hierarchical analysis could be accomplished,…

  20. Allow setting the option to hide the next question when answering the form with a branching setting.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):

    Allow setting the option to hide the next question when answering the form with a branching setting.


    ■Description(内容):
    分岐の設定を行ったフォームでは、複数選択可能な設問を作成すると、複数選択可能な設問を回答前から次の設問が既に表示されてしまっています。
    また、次の設問を表示するか、非表示にするかの設定はありません。
    そのため、分岐の設定にて複数選択可能な設問を作成した際には、次の設問を表示にするか非表示にするかの設定の追加を要望いたします。

    When creating a question of multiple choices on the form with branching settings, the next question is already displayed even before users answer the question of multiple choices. Also, I confirmed that there is no option to set whether display or hide the next question.
    Therefore, I hope you to add the option that enables setting whether display or hide the next question when we created a question of multiple choices in the form…
