  1. Add voice recording to Microsoft forms

    I would love to be able to record the questions on quizzes that I create for students. Some of my students struggle with reading, and this would enable to them to complete the quiz independently and at their own pace.

  2. 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.

  3. Create a sliding scale and numerical scale. With options to design the exact length or number options on a horizontal scale.

    A horizontal or vertical scale that can be ranked to set numbers identified by the designer of the question. Or a sliding scale option where the individual can slide a cursor along a horizontal line to indicate their level of agreement along a scale that has an anchor on each end.

  5. 4Teachers: As a test question option, sorting elements into correct categories.

    One of the question types should be that test takers would have to click and drag like elements from a list into correct categories (2 or more).

  6. Allow the long

    It appears there is a character limit around 1,000 words in "long essay." Please EXTEND this LIMIT to at least 1500. 5 paragraph essays can easily exceed +1,000 words.

  10. 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

  11. adding a question type of sorting options

    Quite oftenly we need to ask for students to fill in their preferences in order, so by providing some options to them and ask them to sort in accordance to their preference is a good way. If we use individual MC questions for that, we have to check for multiple entrance of the same options in different question manually.

  13. populate a survey with a table or SharePoint list

    I would like to be able to populate data from a spreadsheet or a SharePoint list into the survey. Data that is already available would then exist, and the respondent would only need to respond to those questions with no response.

  16. 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.)

  17. 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…

  18. 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/

  19. add response box to rating

    I often using a clearly defined rating system and request either textual evidence for the rating given or some type of written justification. I need to have a rating system that I can define ALL of the levels (not just 5 and 1) and offer a text box for student responses.
