  1. 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…

    • 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…

      • 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.

        • Field validation

          Have field validation for e-mail address that at least checks for the @ symbol.

          • For the likert question type allow more than 7 answers.

            For the likert scale it works really well if you have a series of questions that are on a scale of 1-5. In fact it appears to be able to go up to 7 choices. It would be nice if this could match the rating option to allow up to 10.

            • Add a free-form quantitative response option for matrix-type questions.

              Similar to the Likert, be able to have the user fill in a number for each combination of Option and Statement. Each grid square could accept a number response. It's essentially a small spreadsheet grid for 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 columns for checkboxes

                      I would love the ability to create a field of checkboxes delineated by separate columns rather than creating a new question for each category.

                      • allow changing the question type

                        Sometimes I duplicate an existing question to have the same items but in a different question format (e.g., one question is a Likert and I want to have the same items in a ranking). It would be nice to easily switch between question types when creating the Form.

                        • Physical Address Validation

                          When entering a physical address, it automatically populates an address like in Google Maps so it is more likely to be entered correctly and faster.

                            i like that you have a calender option, but in my work we need an hour based schedule, so that we would get an output with 26-01-2018 at 4pm or 3:30 pm etc. maby also 24 clock.

                            • enable the ablitity to rearrange listed answers within the multiple choice form builder section.

                              I suggest:

                              1) the ability to edit form responses as needed and

                              2) enabling the ability to rearrange listed answers within the multiple choice form builder section. This way the user can add optional multiple choice answers without having to delete previously recorded answers, rearranging the order as needed.

                              • Comment box in forms

                                Can we add comment box at the end of every questions in Forms. I have given option of "others" to my respondents but that is hurting my reporting purpose in excel. Since I have allowed them for multiple answering for example they have to either answer yes or no (mandatory) and for comments they can select others. but while downloading the file in excel. I have to do a lot of work to separate the responses since comments has been treated as a choice.

                                          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.
