    • Allow authenticated but anonymous responses with one response per person

      Forms should allow you to check the settings boxes for "record name" and "one response per person" independently. For things like voting we only want one vote, we want people to login to vote, but we do not want to see their name. Forms can store voting history to enforce single responses but should not need to display it to the Form owner.

      • To enable sharing settings through user authentication and group setting

        We would like to use shared fuctions (Share pane, Share as a template, Share to collaborate) at our university.
        However, we are hesitant to use the sharing fuction to fear the leakage of URLs.

        Since there are so many teachers and students in our university, it is risky to share Forms to an unspecified number of users due to URLs leakage.
        We are supporsed to share on a group basis, and are wary of the leakage of URLs.

        We would like to sharing settings through user authentication, and would like to enable group setting.
        (In group setting, we guess that…

        • Export to powerpoint (pptx-file)

          I would like to present the results from the forms in a Power Point presentation. It would be great if one can export the questions with the graphs into a slides - one question+graph /slide .

                • Allow pre-populated data via URL parameter

                  It would be helpful to be able to add a GET value to the share link to provide default answers to questions. E.g., ?q1=default&q2=default2

                    • allow survey creator to suppress resubmit link at end of survey

                      When an anonymous user who received the survey as a link has finished the survey they are given a link to Retake the same survey again.

                      I can't see any way for the survey creator to disable this. Could this be added as a feature?

                        • Provide a user unique "view only" link to the results

                          My teachers want to be able to provide a link to the results of a student assessment that will remain unique to the student. Assuming they must login (with their O365 credentials) to see the results, it should know who they are and show them only their results. And not be able to edit them either. Thanks

                            • enable sharing of form, responses and live document through edit / view only option

                              I would like to be able to share a form and live results page, including live online excel doc with colleagues, but currently can only send a URL link in this option. I would like to invite someone such as how you can in word etc, to be able to edit or view the form, not just be given a link that gets forwarded on to others, and the responses.

                              I would like to be able to let that person edit the results page also, i.e, completing added columns in the results page such as' job completed" etc, and then…

                              • Enable external sharing using email adresses and record who answered

                                Please enable external sharing with recorded names, like a survey where if you shared to a group of email adresses they would each get unique links so you can know who replied what.

                                This so us teachers can collect information from parents that do not have Office 365 accounts.

                                • Allow design spaces to be shared so that teams can work together and view results for multiple forms

                                  For teams that have many shared forms it would be useful to have a shared dashboard to manage, sort, create forms and view results.

                                      • Sharing forms between people using email instead of creating a link.

                                        It would be great if sharing forms could be done by inviting others in to your form via email within your organization. That way you would be automatically invited as a person if someone adds you to their form as an administator. As a teacher for example then one teacher can invite the other one to edit the form simply by searching for the other teachers email adress and adding that perosn. Sort of like one drive.

                                        • allow form responses to be sent to an email or multiple emails. we are trying to use microsoft form instead of google docs to no avail

                                          My school wants to use microsoft form instead of google docs since our district is pushing the use of microsoft office products however the microsoft form does not allow you to send form responses to an email or to multiple emails.
