  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Likert Query

    May we have more than 10 options available as part of the Likert Question Type. 10 just isn't enough.

  7. 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.

  9. Likert Scale to work with Quiz Mode

    Currently you are able to select a likert scale when creating a quiz but you can not assign an answer to it to be marked but you can receive points for it. Can it be changed so we can input the answers like the other question types so that it can be automatically marked.

  10. 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.

  12. Multiple Choice Grid like Google Forms

    A multiple choice grid (similar to google forms) makes Common Core like questions with multiple criteria with multiple answers possible.

  13. Optioin to change choice questions layout to horizontal

    Ability to change choice questions layout from vertical to horizontal. For example, true/false options take up too much space. So do choice questions with less than 4 options. It would be nice to change the layout for this questions type

  14. A Table format question, say we want the input data all relevant to one question, like time, date, grade, subject etc.

    The table format would allow the creator to ask one question and receive multiple answers back surrounding that question, this would stop you having to have 10+ questions stating essentially the same thing to get them to answer the questions surround it. such as

    List any Qualifications you have including the:
    Name, Date from, date to, the Qualification, the subject and the Grade. 5 questions have to created currently when really it's one question with a multi-faceted answer

  15. 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/

  16. Import a set og quizes from excel

    I want to import from Excel. When I will make word test it would be easy to create a column of words in language A and one for words in language B. So I can only import a long list of Norwegian and English words. This facilitates the job of testing our students words proficiency in foreign languages.

  17. increase the number of choices one can have in a choice question. Frankly, there shouldn't be a limit anyway.

    I want to ask principals to tell me their school. I have 109 schools. I want to make it a choice question so I do not have to deal with the variety of ways they truncate the names. I want the correct, formal name. If I have a choice question with all the names and they only have to select their school from a list then I ensure that the data is usable as is without having stray names in my database.

  18. Enable results filtering

    We're looking at using forms for feedback on regular meetings. It would be great to use the same survey, with a field for meeting date set as 'filterable' so we could filter the graphs to a specific meeting (e.g. to see how particular speakers were received)

  19. Option to set default date to "today" in date picker

    Would like to be able to have a date field at the top of the questionnaire that the user can optionally modify, but defaults to today's date.

    I guess to broaden this request, it would be great to support "default dates", including static dates or variables dates like "today".
