  1. Take Forms to the next level

    This would be invaluable with a few additions:

    1) Checkboxes (not just radio)
    2) email alerts when completed to Form owner(s)
    3) Ability to attach files (20-50mb)
    4) Ability to turn completed forms into tasks or "to do lists"
    5) "if this... then" when creating the questions would be great. So some questions might "unlock" other questions.(slightly different than branching).
    6) ability to link dates to a shared calendar (making due dates and reminders possible

    • Transfer of ownership

      Add ability to transfer ownership of form to another person. Useful for when a person leaves the company or changes roles and form ownership needs to transfer to another person.

        • 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 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. We want to be able to enter teacher feedback into the form and email the responses to the teacher, assistant principal and principal. Currently google docs allows us to email the form responses and chart our entries. Microsoft form using flow will only allow you to get a notification that a response has been entered which does us no…

            • Allow the full form to be sent via email. 50%+ higher response rates when the survey is in the email body, saving respondents a click.

              Include the survey/form within the body of an email message in addition to the link to the survey. Response rates are higher when participants can respond from within the body of an email message.

              • Allow Ability to Auto-Fill/Pre-Fill answers

                Google Forms has an ability to Pre-Fill answers. You can even edit the Pre-Fill link to even change which Strings you would like to import.

                This is done in Google Forms by assigning each Question a unique ID # and you can easily manipulate what you want the Answer to say by changing the ID #'s Pre-fill data.

                I feel like Microsoft Forms should be able to implement something similar. I know a lot of businesses would like to import data quickly as well.

                • Integrate Forms with SharePoint.

                  The ease of use Forms provide would make building request apps, approval apps, and calendar apps much easier.

                  • Ability to turn share a survey outside organization without form being marked Anonymous

                    We are using the form as a guest survey that requires a name and contact information be provided. We offer a prize incentive for anyone completing the survey and need a way to contact the winners.
                    People are confused by the form having a subheading that says "Your response is anonymous" but the first question requires them to identify themselves.
                    It would be great to be able to turn that marking off or on depending on the intended use of the form.

                            Share the form with specific people.

                            Especially in corporate setting there is usually a need to send the survey/quiz to specific people instead of everyone in organization. There should be a way to do that.

                            • 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…

                                    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.

                                      • Pass default values to form through URL query string

                                        We would get much more mileage out of the forms feature if we could pass default values in the form URL that are set when the form opens.

                                        For example we are asking some 100 users to fill out the same form, but some values we want to preset for some groups of users.
