  2. "I'm not a robot" Button for reCAPTCHA

    I want to avoid submitting forms by robot.
    When sharing the forms with anonymous who an access form's url,
    I need the setting to avoid it.
    The button " I'm not a robot" is easy and no-cost way to do it.

  5. move pre-existing forms into forms for excel

    I've recently found out about forms for excel, and as i want to create a form that my group will all be able to access and see the reporting information all in one place this is perfect.

    But I've already created the forms, and just want to add them onto the excel for forms but it won't allow me.

    Is there a way possible which will allow me to move these pre-existing forms onto forms for excel, so that my collegues can see all the forms and all the information from then in one place.

    Thanks

  6. Regarding Microsoft Forms "File Upload" questions

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Forms の [ファイルのアップロード] の設問について
    Regarding Microsoft Forms "File Upload" questions


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Forms の [ファイルのアップロード] の設問を設置したフォームにおいて、"回答の送信と収集" の共有範囲が "自分の所属組織内のユーザーのみが回答可能" のみ選択可能となり、"リンクにアクセスできるすべてのユーザーが回答可能" の選択ができず、外部ユーザーへアンケートの共有ができない。そのため、[ファイルのアップロード] の設問を設置したフォームにおいても外部ユーザーへ共有できるよう機能の拡充を要望します。​
    Only "Only people in my organization can respond" can be selected for the sharing range for "Send and Collect Responses" for forms that are using Microsoft Forms "File Upload" questions, "Anyone with the link can respond" cannot be selected and surveys cannot be shared with external users. Thus we hope that sharing with external users can be enabled as well for forms that are using Microsoft Forms "File Upload" questions.

  7. Allow "responder name" for forms used with those outside your Office 365 organization

    I am using the forms for clients of my practice. Whenever they fill out forms, it sends a response as "Anonymous". If we are using these forms for data collection from people outside of our Office 365 organization, we need to know who it is from.

  8. 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).

  10. Allow authenticated responses for people outside my organization so I can track external user responses. Require hotmail or outlook acct

    Allow external responses for people outside my organization one response per person but require Name/email address so I can track external user responses then have the link expire when complete. We have external contractors that need to complete a quiz but we need to know who completed and when.

  12. More details available from the results summary link

    I would like people who have the summary results link to be able to fully view all responses on the form, including the person that sent it (if this setting was enabled).

    Alternatively, I'd like for those people to be able to open the read-only Excel document in Excel online.

  13. Allow only one response per person for people outside the organization

    At the moment, we have the ability to allow only one response per person for people inside the organization. We’d like to have the same for people outside the organization, for example, to do surveys with guests. If authentication is necessary, then it should also have the option to keep the response anonymous.

  15. Export options

    Ability to export to multiple formats ie, PDF, online links, excel. I need to export individual responses, collective and sometimes summary data. Survey Monkey has this functionality. Both full detail and summary data. Reporting infographic style response data is what execs like to see.

  16. Add support for printable (paper) forms

    I do not see how I can print a form!?

    I want to be able to print a form in Forms and hand it to a client for them to complete on paper. Then I want to manually submit their responses later on.

  17. Need to grant read only access to the survey results without ability to modify the form

    Need to grant read only access to the survey results without the ability to modify the form or at the very least setup versioning on the form so that when some yahoo decides to delete the questions I can restore the form to its original glory.

  18. 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?

    Forms の外部共有の各設定が "オン" と "オフ" しか選択できない。
    許可したユーザーやグループにのみ Forms の外部共有を許可するような機能の拡充を要望します。

    In Microsoft Forms, we can only select “on” or “off” for each setting in the external sharing.

    For improvement of usability and manageability, provide the setting that can allow only specific users/groups to share Forms items with external users.

    Thank you for your consideration.
