  1. In Microsoft Forms, there should be the option to recover previous versions of a form

    In Microsoft Forms, I didn't realize that making edits to live forms erased all previous responses, even after downloading the Excel workbook from the form. It would be helpful to be able to either a) recover responses from previous versions or b) restore previous versions of a form.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Enable filtering the results in Microsoft Forms

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    回答結果のフィルタリング機能について

    Enable filtering the results in Microsoft Forms


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Forms では、Forms 上の回答結果の確認画面にてフィルタリングを行う事ができず、全ての結果のみ確認可能です。例えば、複数の部署からの回答がある場合、部署ごとの回答結果をまとめることが出来ません。Excel に出力した際にはフィルタリングは可能ですが、Forms 上でもフィルタリングが行えるとより良いです。
    そのため、Forms 上の回答結果の確認画面においてもフィルタリングを行える機能の実装を要望いたします。

    In Microsoft Forms, it is not possible to filter the form results from view results page. We only can view all the results unsorted.

    For example, even though there are results responded by multiple departments, we cannot compile the results for each department.
    We can export the form results to Excel file and filter the results but it is more convenient if we could do the same on Forms.

    Therefore, I hope the Filter feature will be implemented to…

  8. Allow entering comments with ratings as a special need (rating < #, enter details)

    Should allow entering comments with Ratings. This can be useful for e.g. if I am requesting 1 to 5 ratings and share details if rating < 3

  9. Restore locations

    Currently if you have to restore data in Forms then you can ONLY restore to the live "space". If your form is still live this will break future forms responses and create either duplicate or replacement responses per ID.

    This is a VERY poor solution for a restore - you should be able to restore the data to an alternative location or data file for examination that doesn't affect the live form and subsequent responses.

  11. Be able to create a new quiz directly in MS teams

    I prefer to do my work directly from MS teams, which makes it great I can make a form directly in MS teams. A quiz though I can only create on the webtool.

  13. 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…

  14. Enhanced restore period

    Currently, according to the Product Group forms data can be restored for up to 30 days post "deletion" or loss.

    This restore period should be a longer period of time (perhaps 90 or 180 days) to reflect simmilar restore periods in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business.

  15. Make multiple choice options easier to enter

    It would be great if you could enter all multiple choice options at once (each on a new line), as you can with SharePoint, so you can copy and paste the options in bulk, instead of having to enter them in separate fields.

  17. Edit font by bolding, highlighting, underlining, size, italics, etc.

    I need to be able to edit the text as I create questions and answer choices. For example, I need to be able to bold, highlight, underline, change font size, italics, etc. in order to draw attention to an important part of the question and/or answer for my students.

  19. Offer language choice to respondents.

    I want to create a survey in two languages, but not have to show both languages for each question. I would love to offer the respondents the option of choosing the language for the survey. It will be a much more streamlined looking survey. The results must compile into one bilingual or chosen language data sheet at the end.

  20. Allow responses to be edited after form submission

    Allow people to edit their previous response to a form which only allows a single submission per user. For example a link could appear on the "Your response has already been submitted" page inviting the person to edit the response
