  1. 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.

  2. Send scheduled e-mail for repeat response

    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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. "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.

    Resonse : "John"

    Q2 : Hi %variable Q1% (John in my exemple), nice to meet you...

  11. 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.

  12. Connect forms to the "event web part" in sharepoint online

    ..so that users can register for the event. The possibility to define a registration form and connect it to events for example by checking a "needs registration" option.

    A confirmation email sendt to the user with possibility to cancel the registration (within a certian date) would also be appriciated :)

  13. Microsoft Forms Due Date and Submitted Date formats

    The Due Date and Submitted Date fields are different formats. This poses an issue for anyone wanting to create a Microsoft Flow to use these field to update a Planner Task (which I've done, but it required coding).

  14. 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…

  15. Allow live editing of MS Forms Results spreadsheet

    If a user submits a Form with incorrect/missing information, the Form owner/creator should be able to LIVE EDIT the RESULTS spreadsheet. (Currently, it only downloads onto your computer as a stand-alone Excel file.) This feature is available when using Google Forms/sheets and I will begin using those again until this feature is available in MS Forms/O365.

  16. Connectors for JIRA

    Maybe on the roadmap for future iterations, but I would like to suggest a connector for JIRA issues. It would be nice to be able to include a link in a JIRA issue that could send a form to the reporter of the issue. The reporter than completes the form, and upon submission, the results are posted into the corresponding JIRA issue.

  17. Clearer wording on documentation

    In the documentation, the word "response" can be confused with either a response to a single question or, in the current meaning, a response to the survey or quiz as a whole. I feel the wording should differentiate the two. For example, a "response" is to a question or series of questions, where as a "submission" or another word is for a completed survey or quiz. Especially when the button to complete the survey or quiz is labeled as "Submit".

  18. Have the "Submit" button deactivated if there are required questions that have not been answered.

    If there are required questions that have yet to be answered, the "Submit" button should be deactivated so that the user cannot submit until all required questions have been addressed.
