  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

      • 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.

          • Support permalinks (permanent link URL) for specific responses

            Allowing copying of a URL to a specific response would make it easier to share which response you're looking at with another person.

            A second use case would be to be able to put a reference to a response into a document so that the source can be checked (by anyone with the correct access).

            • 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.

              • Allow forms to be saved in to a location that all employees can see, edit and use. (removing the need to share everything and send links)

                Please create a location where you can save forms such that they are then available to all users in our organization. Right now you need to share via link. Anything in said group should just be available to all users in the organization.

                We are going to use forms to create on/offboarding forms for our clients. But every team member will likely create several of these forms. It would be great if we could just drop them in to one place where everyone can see them.

                • Allow to share result page or responses "with everyone with link"

                  The story: We use MS Forms in a small production to document internal quality checks, for internal use only - Forms is a fine tool for that purpose, as we do not have any software developer in house. We use Power BI to show results on a weekly basis. Operators has the opportunity to write comments.

                  What we need: An option to share/view results/responses with "everyone with the link" - the pc's our operators uses only have our ERP-system and a browser, therefore they cannot see the lastest responses/comments. We really need the option to "share with everyone with the…

                  • Email responses to responder and create live responses sheet to be able to share (not just Excel)

                    Responders do not currently receive email confirmation of their responses on 365 and we receive requests for this - this must be something that can easily be rectified as on Google Forms.
                    Can a spreadsheet be created as a live document for responses received not a download into Excel, again as in Google Forms. This means that the responses can be shared as a live document that updates automatically.

                      Once the form is edited and sent out, the responses are the interesting part to have accessible with one click in Teams

                        Avoid multiple responses to a survey and allow only invited participants to fill out the survey. This is a crucial feature for rigorous surveys.

                          • Forms should share in more ways than just a link.

                            I think the forms should actually be a form when sharing, not just a link. Also forms could be useful if it could be included as a form template in Excel. I am trying to do a form that others can use in Excel that will also feed the responses to the worksheets.

                              I want to use this as a tool to observe what teachers are doing. There are four administrators that are using the same tool. I would like them to be able to use it as often as possible and not be anonymous. I would also like to be able to send an e-mail of what I observed to the teacher.

                              • Extend the ability to pass data to the form from the launching url and use it in Forms and for data analysis

                                Possible this requires two new features.
                                I would like to invite a set of users where each user has his/her own unique link, or I could embed encoded data into the link. This data will be added to the form as hidden data that is required for analysis.
                                It would be best to be able to restrict each user from filling just 1 result set.
                                I could add a source of the link, or website where the link was clicked from. Or possibly add data from say a webshop where I include the order amount or other information from the…

                                  • 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.

                                      I want to use the forms as a type of assessment and share the results with the respondent.

                                      • Improvement of behavior when sharing Forms by email.

                                        ■Title(件名):Forms のメールでの共有について

                                        Improvement of behavior when sharing Forms by email.
                                        ***************
                                        ■Description(内容):
                                        Microsoft Forms にて、フォームを共有する際にメール ボタンをクリックするとアカウントに追加画面に遷移することに気づいています。

                                        管理の容易さのため、フォームを共有する際にメール ボタンをクリックすると、クライアント PC にインストールされているメーラーが立ち上がるか、または OWA 画面に遷移する選択肢を選択可能となる機能の実装を要望いたします。

                                        I noticed the behavior that the user is the transition to the screen of the adding accounts when you share forms by clicking on the email button in Microsoft Forms.

                                        For ease of management, we hope the feature to implement that enables launching the mailer installed on the client PC or selecting the option to transition to the OWA screen when you click on the email button when sharing forms.

                                        Thank you for your consideration.

                                        • 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.
