  1. Display Order Not Change

    It seems that the order of the forms changes and always shows the most recently edited first.

    It would be better personally to be able to put them in an order and leave them in that order and not change based on last used/edited.

    Even better would be folders.

  2. Add hyperlink options. When I am using Forms as a sign-up for camps, ect. I would like to route them to a site to pay for it.

    Add hyperlink options. When I am using Forms as a sign-up for camps, etc. I would like to route them to a site to pay for it. Also, it would also be nice for on-line scavenger hunts. Can you please add it?

    Otherwise, I love Forms!

  3. Add a text box field to come up after completion with customized message.

    It would allow the ability to thank the person for completing the form or provide information on what to expect next (like for a registration).

  4. Column Layout for short answers such as First Name and Last Name

    My forms Typically begin with

    First Name?
    Last Name?
    Homegroup/class?
    Student Id Number?

    All these questions have short answers. Currently they take up quite a lot of vertical space, which then requires users to scroll down. This is great when using a Mobile phone. But not particularly useful when using laptops or tablets.

    It would be great if you could add some column options. Just like what you have in Power Apps

  6. Dynamically Updating Fields

    Be able to have dynamically changing respones based on user groups in O365 or use a Flow rule to populate questions based on a list of values from a sharepoint table, i.e. have a list of managers as a response to a question and have that list of managers be stored in a list in Sharepoint so that multiple forms could reference it

  7. Retain some values in batch submissions

    It would be useful to keep certain field values (e.g. city, location, etc.) between repeating submissions by one user. This is very useful in polls, where one agent collects answers from multiple people while certain fields are not changing a lot (yet entering same values again and again is tiresome)

  8. Delete answers after a set period of time

    If you are collecting sensitive information or personal information you might want to delete answers from Forms. It would be great if you could set a time i.e after a time period the answers are deleted.

  9. Here are a couple of Forms improvements:

    Here are a couple of Forms improvements:

    1.) Organization of Folders! (a must)

    2.) Teachers should be able to make individual classes in one Form, rather than making all individual forms for each class. (This creates more forms that would improve organization).

    3.) There should be a feature that students that don’t finish, can go back in and retake or finish the forms. Right now some teachers tell the students to write down all answers so if they need to finish they can easily punch it back in. (This would create one less step for the students).

    4.) Students should…

  11. Drop-down field hidden values

    I would like to be able to give drop-down options hidden values. For instance the end user would see a descriptive title, but behind the scenes an "ID".

  13. Add three simple options


    1. Make it possible to set default parameterized values for a field.

    2. Make it possible to mark fields as 'read-only'.

    3. Make it possible to set a limited number of responses for one answer-option (example: there are 5 places for meeting room A and 5 for meeting room B, when one of both of them are chosen 5 times, they should no longer be available)

  14. allow custom response reports.

    I am using Forms to gather information on different topics from different people. Perhaps Forms is not the best solution for this. However, when someone submits their input I would like to be able to extract thir submissions only. And group responses per person. tks.

  15. allow owner to reorder answer options when creating a form.

    When I hover over an answer option, my only choice is to delete. I would like to be able to reorder the answer options if needed by dragging and dropping.

  17. Allow for batch deleting of responses

    I'd like to be able to reuse the same form with other classes but I don't need the "other" classes responses. As a result, before the next class comes in, I'd like an easy way to delete all the previous responses.

  18. Make responses on results page easier to read

    When I look at or display the results page, very often answer choices in my surveys and quizzes are cut off. When I mouse over, only part of the text is often shown. This is especially a problem when I want to display quiz results in class. The entire text of each answer choice is not displayed, which makes it very difficult to review and have a discussion. Plus it just looks sloppy. Is there some way to fix this that I am overlooking?

  19. Update date handling logic to handle this millennium

    Update the "date" field logic so that a 2-digit year ("17") resolves to this millennium ("2017" instead of "1917"). Many users will enter a date as, eg, 11/17/17 - this will resolve (in the responses) as 11/17/1917.

  20. translate

    When making a form in another language than the default, in my case Swedish, I would like to be able to translate/edit all aspects of the form, including what I assume is "submit your answer" in the answer text boxes. As it is now, my form in English has a Swedish prompt in the answer text box and I can't seem to do anything about it.
