  1. Add ability to insert sections, titles and instructional text

    Make it possible to add sections (Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3) before or between questions, with the ability to provide "sub-title" text. For example, a section providing instructions for the next few questions.

    • Have "Add comments" on Forms

      After each Question, I would love to have a " Add Comment" section so that the answerer can put a comment/explanation for his/her answer.

        • Add a Signature field

          The ability to add signatures to the form will allow better audit control and can be introduced on mobile devices as well as via image attachment at desktop. This will also allow the application to complete more closely with forms created in adobe fill and sign.

          • Add ability to set a redirect URL

            Could be really cool to redirect the user at the end of the survey/quiz to a custom URL. (for example a SharePoint page giving details on the next steps...)

            • Registration Form

              It would be nice to have an option that allows you to upload an ICS (calendar appointment) so the event (or session) can download it and added to their calendars

              • print by respondent

                Allow the respondent to print the form before sending
                Allow the respondent to print the completed form after submission
                The form must have a good presentation

                • More Form Details on Dashboard

                  It would be super helpful if you could get a 'Details' view on the Dashboard like in Window's Explorer. This would allow sorting by creation date, seeing the author (on OtherForms) and other details that would help tell similar forms apart from each other. Sometimes the brief titles are not enough to know which is which, especially when starting with the same template multiple times.

                  • Ability to save the survey in a kind of format that could be uploaded to restore a survey or create a new one from configuration

                    Ability to save the survey in a kind of format that could be uploaded to restore a survey or create a new one from configuration.

                    I.e. in the Copy / Delete menu, add the Save As Menu to save the survey in a certain config file that can be restored to any other survey with our without data.

                    This would be also helpful if the 365 subscription expires. Then I am able to kind of backup my surveys with or without data and reuse it.

                    In a later version maybe there would be a kind of offline Survey Design that…

                      We want to use Microsoft Forms but don't want to create multiple forms for all spoken languages inside our company. We like to see a function which enables for multiple languages inside one form.

                      • Microsoft Forms as Forms not as survey and quiz

                        Microsoft Forms as Forms not as survey and quiz; there should be a third category where I can create forms for use as forever alive forms. That is when it is published, the users will get linked to using a valid mail and confirmation either immediately or after first registration.

                        In such case it is not anonymous and it links the user to the form for further updating of the information.

                        This would link for instance a class of students to their forms all the year or during date duration or course updating same form anytime to save time and…

                                Hi,

                                I would like to be able to setup a form and invite employees to complete it. Then after a predefined time, i.e. 1 year, have an e-mail sent out automatically, asking the respondent to complete the form again.

                                This would be useful to collect survey data annually and reduce the administrative burden, especially for an organisation with 1000's of employees.

                                • If no entry in others then don't count it

                                  if there is no entry in others then why count it.
                                  I'm applying that to a multiple question. Specifically a list of names and if a name is missing then that name can be added.

                                    • assign numerical values to text ratings

                                      I am creating a survey where I'm asking respondents to rate items on a rudimentary "Very Bad" to "Very Good" scale. However, I'd like to for those ratings to correspond to values 1 through 5 on the back end to analyze and chart in Excel (e.g. "Very bad" = 1, "Bad" = 2, etc). Doing a Find & Replace in Excel is very messy and creates too many opportunities to inadvertently change the data.

                                      • Display message in the forms

                                        In quiz there is the option to display a message when an answer is ticked. However you can only use this if there is a correct answer. It would be extremely useful to have this option for a message box in forms as well so when the respondent selects an answer and submits the form they can immediately see comments based on their responses.

                                        • "Estimated" time to complete

                                          It would be great to add the estimated typical time to complete the survey based on the type of questions in advance in addition to the average completion time. So while sharing the survey link, we can notify users of the time expected from them to complete the form.
