  1. add an archive option

    I sometimes need to keep forms for a year or more. However, I don't need to see them in my list of forms all the time. It would be nice to be able to archive forms instead of delete.

  2. See view-able responses past 300 without having to download the excel file, increase the drop-down menu

    After creating a form where responses are collected, it would be fabulous if we could use the individual response drop-down menu to view responses 301 and beyond. Why can we only see numbers 1 - 300? Due to the fact that you can't really see responses immediately on the Excel, it would be great if we could continue using the drop-down.

  3. Set Default response for choice type questions

    I am creating a survey using Forms and would like to set a question of type choice (yes, no, maybe) to have default value set as "No"

  5. Allow people to return to their forms later and alter data after submitting

    We would like to use Forms to create an online form for Scholarship management. We need students to be able to log back in with their Office 365 credentials and occasionally edit their responses when their academic situation changes.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Neater ways to organize the created forms

    Having multiple quizzes and surveys in a given school year makes the interface way to cumbersome for advanced use. Scrolling through endless pages of huge icons that all relatively look the same to find a past form is a waste of time. Allowing the icons to be toggled between the standard size and smaller versions would help. Then allowing for the forms to be organized into user defined folders would help to streamline the user interface.

  10. 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.

  11. 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. Add folders

    Please add folders, is the best way to organize forms, a search bar is not enough. Each form I make need to have the same theme so is become a mess when I have to search for one.

  15. 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.

  17. Being able to organise forms into folders

    I use forms for class quizzes, end of topic tests, learner voice and staff surveys. It would be great to be able to put them into folders. So for example all year 12 tests can be in one folder, then staff feedback can be in another, all numeracy quizzes can be in their own folder. Making it a lot easier to manage your forms. Currently it is a little over whelming with all the forms on the page

  18. 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…

  20. Print questions before getting responses

    When creating a large survey, it would be helpful to be able to print off the form before getting any responses. It would make editing questions easier.
