  1. Provide form category metadata

    In an organization with many forms, it would be helpful if we could categorize them by department, function, purpose etc. This would make it easier to browse through a big set of forms.

  2. allow the admin to live edit responses

    Personal Scenario: I am running a form for the general public to sign up for a Charity event and don't plan to close the application window until February. In the first 2 weeks, my form has had 90 responses. If it keeps up the pace, I'm not going to remember that record 87 needs tweaking in 6 weeks time when I come to download/respond to the applications.

  3. What about the idea of using this as a way to collect Monthly Status Reports from staff.

    Every place I have been, a PM collects Monthly Status Reports. These need to be formatted and combined into 1 document that is given to the client/customer. This seems like a good way to do it and would reduce time on the PM's part. Could you enforce a formatting (bullet points) template in the staff replies. Then combine all the staff replies "What Did You Work On This Month" into a single Word Document.

  4. Different Column Widths

    I would like to be able to change the Widths of the columns of the options.
    If ine of the options on a Linkert question has more than a couple of words the row becomes huge because it's changing the line every 2 or 3 words. If we are able to open the column so that the text fits nicely it's would have a better look.
    And the gap between each column is so small it looks it's just a regular space between two words

  5. Attach pre-quiz materials for read up before attempting to answer the quiz

    The pre-quiz materials can be in pdf format and users can review them before attempt to answer the quiz

    - Device
    - Any tags/parameters used in the referrer URL

  9. Microsoft graph API integration with Form

    I would love to see Microsoft Graph integration with form to allow api calls to do such things as:


    • create new form using api and template.

    • get url of the form using the api so it can be embedded on to external site, using user's credential.

    • use it to fetch responses as json object.

    • get and set questions on the form.

  10. Missing in Forms!!

    It would be great to be able to write something in the end, like "thank you for the answer", with out doing a question.

  11. Send question to bottom/top

    Sometimes in a longer form, copying a question to repeat at the bottom can be a chore. It would be helpful to have a button that sends it straight to the top or bottom instead of requiring 50+ clicks.

  12. Copy multiple questions

    It would be helpful when creating the forms if a user could copy multiple questions at once.

    For example, I am creating a network jack survey. The questions are Plate location, Upper Left Jack Number, Upper Left Jack Color, Upper Left Jack connected to what, and the same for upper right, lower left, and lower right.

    I have to copy each of these questions for every plate in the room, adding a new branch at the end for "more plates?". It's quite tedious to copy a question, scoot it to the bottom, find the following question, copy, scoot it to…

  13. 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)

  14. Allow various reporting, e.g. save as PDF

    The current reporting functions are too limited. At least we should be able to save as PDF to be able to send out the reports.

    the fact that Reporting is not even a selection in categories in this user voice group for Forms is in itself already worrying.

  15. create an option to allow for people in your organization to be a drop down list answer.

    If you allowed for a question type that the answer was a drop down list of everyone in your organization or a list of people, then you could send emails from this using flows. If someone types in their name, this will not work.

  16. Data from a "Choice" where multiple options are allowed should be better organized in the responses

    When I look at he bar graph from a multiple choice question where multiple answers are allowed, if some one chooses more than one check box, it gets sorted as "Other". I want each individual check to be it's own item in the graph.
    In the attached picture, "other" represents anytime someone checked more than 1 item.

  17. add the ability to count attempts to respond after the form has closed so that future forms can be kept open longer if uptake is slow.

    add the ability to count attempts to respond after the form has closed so that future forms can be kept open longer if uptake is slow. Even better would be to record the names of post close respondents and function to email them.

  18. Don't Delete Responses when a Question is Deleted

    When you delete a question, if any responses were given to that question, those responses are deleted.

  19. 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.

  20. Provide developer tools or a way for individuals to customize forms using HTML/CSS/JavaScript

    By having some sort of SDK/Developer tools/Programmatic access it would be possible for individuals to create more complex branching options and modify the look and feel of questions to their liking.
