  1. Allow for a dropdown box

    It would be nice to have a drop down box for users to be able to select one or more choices instead of having to look at a long list of options. It makes the survey appear longer than it is and crowds the page.

    • 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…

      • Ability to change date format to correspond to the user's region

        Hi. In the question type where a date is required currently the only option (as far as I can see) is the US format. Can you kindly give us the ability to choose the region settings for this please? Thanks.

        • 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.

            • Make different (more) questiontypes so that teachers could make more exiting tests for their students.

              Here it would be nice to be able to have the students change the order of different words.

              Connect one word from one collumn to another word in a second collumn. The same connection possibilities between pictures and words, and between pictures in two different colmumns.

              Have the possibility to let students choose a word in a scentence from a drop down menu.

              Have the computer randomize the order of the questions, and to have the computer to pic the number of questions (random pic) form the total number (fex. 30 of 50 questions).

              Set a limit on how many…

                  • Provide a quicker way to add multiple options in an "option" style question

                    Many times, the list of options for a question of type "option" comes from some external source. Occasionally there are relatively many options (e.g.: a list of class members)
                    At this time, the only way to add them, is to repeatedly click "add option" and enter the text.
                    It should not be hard to create a way to paste a delimited text that adds all "items" as options to the question (and from there on, it's probably not hard to create even better options).

                    Note: even better would be if you could point Forms to an existing file (e.g. some…

                      • Specify a certain number of choice of one answer

                        Limit number of choices in multiple choice
                        In Microsoft Forms currently it is possible to have multiple choice questions were we can set only one choice or many choices. I would like to see an option were we can have specified number of choices allowed, say 2, 3 or 4 out of the available options. Instead of One or all.

                        • Grid of Choices

                          I would like a functionality to allow rate various choices. For example, we run training with different sessions/instructors. I would like the survey takers to rate each class by choosing a scale such as "Satisfied", "Very Satisfied", "Dissatisfied" etc.

                                  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 good if there were other restriction options other than just on 'numbers'. For example, I often want to restrict the number of words/characters for a response to avoid overly lengthy responses.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Create option to allow respondents to edit their responses, especially if the option "single response only" is applied.

                                          In the "Who can fill out this form?" option in the Settings, there is a checkbox you can select to limit one response per person. If tick, the user can only submit one response. If not tick, the user can submit multiple responses.
                                          I think there's a need to create an option to allow respondents to edit their responses, whether the "one response per person" is use or not.
