  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

  2. 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

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Integrate Forms with SharePoint.

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

  10. Copy from "My Forms" to "Group Forms"

    I've designed a form under "My Forms" to make tests, now I need the final version shared with my company and it would be good to copy same form to "Group Forms" or transfer ownership to group.

  11. 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.

  12. access all forms

    Please provide administrative access across all created forms (for Global Administrators or Forms Administrators) so that the Forms service can be better administered across the enterprise.

  14. to have prefilled forms options for form links

    It would be great if we can give forms prefilled to the user, in order to double check the information needed.

    For example, if a I want to share a form to all my friends to ask his birthday date, I want to send the information that I already have (if I have) prefilled in the form.

  18. Have the completed form save as a PDF that can be emailed or saved.

    You can print to PDF in FORMS but it must be done manually and individually. Google forms sends the PDF form response which can then be saved, which is significantly more efficient than FORMS.

  19. enable option to record names and emails of survey participants outside my organization

    I'm using this survey to assess Skills outside my organization and to identify gaps based on the results. You don't provide the option to record names and emails for participants outside my organization. If a user takes the survey twice, my results are skewed and I can't delete the duplicate response.

  20. Forms email notification

    In a group form, the email notification does not work! In a group form, it would be helpful if the sender of the form could choose who in the group got the email notification. Please add a field to the email notification to indicate which email to send the notification to.
