  1. Add Check Box

    Add an option for a simple check box instead of just radio button selections. This would be more useful when creating a true form type entry and not a quiz or survey where you may have multiple choice.

    • Non-question fields and Auto-fill date

      Make it possible to add text that isn't a question so that I can add links/paragraphs that are not linked to a question. Also make it possible to autofill the date of the response, so the date is correct. If I have to rely on my students to fill in the correct date, it doesn't always work out.

        • More Field Types

          More types of fields with richer options must be available.
          If Forms is meant to compete with market leaders in this sector, it cannot offer just 4 types of fields it currently offers. See attached screen shots of how many types of field other services are offering.

          Also, you need richer options. For example: you cannot offer only one type of date formatting. We use dd/mm/yyyy in Europe. Americans use the mm/dd/yyyy. The form creator must be able to define the desired format.

          In general, we need more types of fields and more advanced control options for each type of…

                • To display image file as a hyperlink.

                  I'd like to request additional feature below.

                  When I prepar the question, I can upload the image files.
                  For now, this files are display as a image , but I'd like to display it as a hyperlink.

                  • not applicable

                    A survey we use use a rating system of 1-5 which works very well with the current setup. However all questions may not be applicable (N/A).

                    I would the option to add a N/A button on top of the 1-5 rating. I don't feel that not answering the question is necessarily the same.

                      • User Lookup Text Field

                        It would be great if a field (question) existed that would allow lookup of a User in the organization.
                        Example: using forms to create a time off entry, and requiring their supervisor name would perform a lookup based on the text entered; allowing a user to click on the name and thus capture their email address automatically.

                        • NA

                          We are creating a call monitoring form for grading our call center, not all calls are the same and therefore adding an NA option for questions that are not applicable would be beneficial so points were not taken away if NA was chosen. Example Yes = 30 points, No = 0 points, NA = 30 points so the total % is not impacted.

                          • New field type: Person lookup

                            Hi,
                            It would be very useful to be able to have a lookup field for looking up persons in the organization. Similar to the Person field type in Sharepoint.

                                  It would be necessary to allow two different type of answers for a same question, e.g. check answers and then, if the proposed answers doesn't apply, give an option "Other:...." where the person filling in the form would be able to enter his own answer.

                                    • Allow submission of HTML formatted text in the long text response box

                                      Allow submission of HTML formatted text in the long text response box. This would allow the user to format (bold, italic, font size variations, text colors, etc) the text inside the box. Ideally formatted text could be pasted. Formats could be set then with a WYSIWYG editor and html formatting toolbar.
