  1. microsoft forms

    Allow the excel spreadsheet to also be hosted on microsoft online as a continually-updating cloud spreadsheet rather than the current method of having to download a new spreadsheet every time you would like to see the latest results. Google forms has this feature of creating a google spreadsheet to see the results.

    The benefit in mind would be to have other cloud spreadsheets (like Google) to pull data automatically and continuously from the master spreadsheet for sub analysis. I specifically would like to be able to filter responses based on certain columns and make automatically updating separate spreadsheets for each…

  2. Ability to download e.g. to google drive

    School wants to add this to their Google Drive so they can personalize (add letterhead, etc.)? Is there a way to do so? I don't see this as an option right now.

  4. allow the ability to create a pdf to be able to edit and share draft versions

  8. Share Forms detailed responses as a Teams tab with the Excel link, but without the option to change the form

    As a Teams channel administrator, I should be able to
    (1) create a channel tab to detailed Shared Forms´ responses, including the link to excel, not just the summary (current 3 options are Fill, Edit, Summary)
    (2) create a channel tab for Shared Forms on any sub-channel, (currently limited to the Generel/parent channel)

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Formsの共有して共同作業が可能なユーザーに対する制御についての要望
    Request regarding restrictions on Microsoft Forms users who are able to share and work together


    ■Description(内容):
    共有して共同作業が可能なユーザーに対し、回答の削除をユーザーごとに制御させたいです。
    現時点では、フォームを共有して共同作業が可能なユーザーは、フォームの編集、回答の閲覧、回答の削除が制御なくできてしまいます。
    すべての操作が可能になるだけではなく、細かく権限で制御できるように要望します。

  11. Microsoft should allow the "One Response Only" for externals too.

    Microsoft should allow one-time responses for people external to my organization. If I share the link with someone, when they click the link and verify say their email, if it corresponds with a mail address I sent to, then a code that allows them to enter Forms and fill gets sent to them.

  12. Show all responses immediately with respondants (view only) instead of sending a link.

    I want respondents' to see all existing responses as soon as they've finished completing the survey. (view only, not edit). For transparency. I'm sure this was possible before? Has this feature gone?

  14. 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.

  16. Print the form

    Hello!
    I suggest a function to print the form without answers, or some way to put it in Ms Word or Ms Excel, so that it can be commented on by other collaborators.

  17. Regarding copy paste folder

    While copying from one terminal to another like client-server , we are not able to acknowledge or confirm regarding the folder which is been copied has completed or still work in progress, so it's my suggestion to show folder Colorado property to highlight it's yellow colour with red colour till completion of same. Red colour will slowly gets filling the folder Colorado and after completion it will become yellow colour. So the person using at remote location comes to know that the folder is been fully copied.

  18. MAKE IT SIMPLER IN FORMS TO SEND IT LIKE HOW YOU DO IT IN POWERPOINT

    SO WHEN YOU TRY TO SEND IT ON FORMS, YOU HAVE TO DO A LINK. I THINK IT WOULD BE EASYER IF WE COULD JUST SHARE IT THE WAY THAT WE DO IT ON POWERPOINT AND WORD.

  20. Better sharing features that is more in line with other Officer applications

    It would be nice to see who can edit and who has edited a Form aside from just sending a link to people in the hopes that they will look at it and having a visual difference between a Group Form and one in My Forms.
