  1. extend the text limit for long answer

    Please look at increasing the limit on long answers from 4000 characters to that matching Google Forms to make MS Forms usable in a business context.

    This will allow for Forms to be used as the backbone of a reporting system.

  2. 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.

  5. Conditional logic

    It would be useful to have conditional logic such that based on a response the form could do something such as ask a different question(s), send email, etc

  8. Print Forms based on any question

    I would like to be able to print all the forms based on any question. Currently you can only view and print results based on "Responder".
    I use forms to appraisals of employees. I would like to be able to print all the forms for a particular employee instead of who observed them.

  9. Export/Import to XML, JSON, etc.

    Export and import the definition of my forms to XML, JSON or another format. The web edition is very slow.

  10. Allow the rating scale to be more than 5 or 10

    It would be very beneficial to have more than a 5 or 10 option rating scale. We very commonly use a 4 rating scale as a 5 has middle ground if a user select a 3. If using a 4 rating scale, that cannon happen.

  12. Please make it so the survey creator can edit responses.

    I often have people let me know they responded incorrectly in one area. All I can do right now is delete the response and have them do the full survey again. I would prefer like in the excel survey that I can edit a response for them.

  13. Make numbering of questions optional in the settings of Microsoft Forms

    It would be lovely, if Forms did not number the questions automatically and if there was an option not to number questions or to opt in to number or not. Sometimes we would like an added comment to a multiple choice question and in the current format that needs to be a new question that is numbered and that is confusing.

  14. Import, export, copy or move functions

    It is important to be able to perform import, export, copy or move, for example, the forms created from a user to the group forms.

    so that while they are not ready any user can see it.

    and other groups, users, clients or partner distributions.

  15. Be able to change the language of a form without having to change the language of the browser

    Be able to change the language of a form without having to change the language of the browser

    We have many forms in a different languages. This would make it easier to create the same form in different languages a lot easier.

  16. Allow storage of data in geographically local data centers

    The FAQ for Forms says that the data is stored in the US or Europe. Do you plan to store data in the same data center as the Office 365 tenant in the future? We have to turn forms off for now.It would have been nice to have a global switch to turn it off rather than having to change every users license setting.

  18. Administrator ability to edit responses

    I use Forms to gather data for a project with approximately 100 contributors. After submitting their form, it is not at all unusual for someone to ask to edit information submitted. It would not be a problem if we only had to download into Excel at the conclusion, but unfortunately, we have to check the current information on an almost daily basis so any edits made in Excel have to be made over and over again.
