  1. 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…

  2. Time slot picker field

    I suggest creating a time slot picker field/type. This could show a set of blocks on a grid allowing you to select preferred time slots. For example, you could select Monday and Tuesday (specific dates, though) in the options of the field, as well as a time range for each day (ex: 8a to 5p, time-zone specific), as well as the increment in time (30 minute time slots, for example). Then, the field would show a grid with two rows (one for each day) and multiple columns for each time slot. The end-users could select a block for each time…

  3. Add an Office365/AzureAd based People picker form control

    To enable internal forms to easily be able to pick another tenant user as an answer and to avoid mistyping email addresses

  4. 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.

  6. Add a "NA" option for "rate" questions

    I am creating a survey and the 1-5 scale is fine, but I need a "NA" option added.

  7. Have an option to disable the back button at the bottom of every question.

    This will prevent the survey respondent from going back and changing their response to a previous question. This especially helps when you have screening questions. For e.g. If I want the survey to be taken by females 18 - 24, and if a male is taking the survey, they would not qualify. However, when they mention they are male, the next screen displays -"you are not qualified". however, it also has a back button. so they can go back and change their answer. To be able to discourage such behaviour, it would be useful to have the option of removing…

  8. 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.

  9. Input validation on date field

    There should be a way to validate input in the date field. When setting date of birth for example, the date cannot be in the future. We should also be able to branch using information gotten from the date of birth field. Like say students under 25 cannot proceed with form.

  10. Increase the possible number of statements in Likert scales!!

    Actually 10 statements is not enough, pass it to 20 pleaseeeeeeeeeee. Commonly used likert scales in psychological studies use many statements on a 10 points likert scale basis.

  11. Increase the question limit from 100

    I'd like to see an increase in the 100 question limit. We are looking to convert some of our onboarding processes, but would require over 100 fields (with branching) on a single form. Unlimited would be great, but 200 is workable.

  13. 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.

  14. Field "Restrictions" needs improvement

    Field "Restrictions" needs improvement
    Limiting Restrictions to just numbers is not enough.
    User require the ability to request Physical Addresses, Phone Numbers and Email addresses.
    All of these fields need "Restrictions" and Validation that Microsoft Forms should handle automatically and based on region.
    Phone format that helps the user input a proper phone number
    Mailing (address) with postal/post/zip code validation/Restrictions
    Email Restrictions/Validation (abc123@abc123.abc)
    Also a Select User/Group field (pulled from a team or groups or users) in O365.

  17. Have a "time" field, together with the "date" one

    One of the most common use of Google form is to ask details for event or request to users via form. Time for an event is usually a very important field

  18. WordCloud Response

    It would be useful to be able to to ask single word responses that would then feature in the results as a word cloud.

    With the ability to allow for example, to describe the current work environment in 3 single words. The question would aggregate all three words for the overall question and present all questions in a word cloud.

  19. 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.

  20. Insert tables into questions

    Please consider allowing the insertion of tables into questions (like in Word) so respondents can fill in detailed information in their answers. For example, "Please let us know what books you would like the book club to purchase:. Insert a table 4 columns wide (Title, Author, Year, ISBN) with 10 rows, so respondents can list the details of up to 10 books.
