  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.

    • 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…

      • Add a question type that allows 'ranking'

        If I want people to rank their choices:
        1st
        2nd
        3rd,
        I currently have to provide the same choices in 3 separate questions
        Please select your 1st choice
        etc.

        • Allow adding text to a question with choices

            • 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.

                • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Marked priority of options

                        If several options are marked, indicate the order of priority (1st, 2nd, 3rd ...)

                        Example:

                        Question

                        Option 1: Value 3
                        Option2: Value 4

                        • Provide ability to upload mp3s

                          Foreign language teachers could benefit from being able to upload mp3 files as part of quiz/text questions. The ability to listen to and understand a foreign language speaker is key to language acquisition.

                            • Have the ability to put instructions before the question. For example Please rank the following from 1-5

                              We have the ability o add scale to the questions. They can go from 1-5. Would be good to be able to add instructions Above the start of the group of questions. This helps to prevent the question of What do we do with these questions. (i know it should be self explanatory but I am still getting questions.)

                                • Change question type

                                  Once you have selected a question type, text or choice, would it be possible to change on a future date?

                                  For example if I set a form with a text as a required answer, after a number of people have answered the question i could use the data to change the question into a multiple choice

                                  • Add a slider response type

                                    One feature requested by others at my institution before they would consider moving to Microsoft Forms is to have a question type where a slider can be used for the response, like Qualtrics offers: https://www.qualtrics.com/support/survey-platform/survey-module/editing-questions/question-types-guide/standard-content/slider/

                                      • Restrictions

                                        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.

                                          How it works

                                          • Create a user account if you want to add a new suggestion or vote on existing suggestions.
                                          • Select one of the feedback forums listed.
                                          • Check out the ideas others have suggested and vote on your favorites.
                                          • Be sure to search for your suggestion but if you can’t find something similar enough, you can submit your own.
                                          • Keep suggestions focused on a single idea per post and limited to 25 words or less.
                                          • When you post an idea to our forum, others will be able to subscribe to it and make comments.
