  1. add regular expression validation, email and URLs

    I pay for Microsoft Office 365 Business and it's such a shame to have to stick with Google Forms because of the BIG lack of this kind of validations on the data input! Having regular expressions, email validation, string length validation and URL format validation would really be enough for me to finally switch to MS Forms!

  3. Repeating Section Content Control for repetitive questions.

    Why has Microsoft Forms not included 'Repeating Section Content Control' for repetitive question types?

    It is an extremely handy tool to add recurring questions, the number of responses to which is uncertain.

    For instance for a question like, 'List the members of your family unit not included in this form', include their relationship to you, names, DOB's, sex, address, nationality etc.

    It is impossible to determine how many branching logic to apply to such a question, as it can be hard to predict the number of family members one may have.

  11. Conditional Logic on Form Fields (not branching)

    Hey one thing I think many people would find useful would conditional logic for fields. Not branching.

    For Example, if a checkbox is selected, reveal a text field to give more context to your selection.

  12. Connect field to user directory

    Create a field type that allows searching the internal user directory and selecting a user (email address).

    Example: We have a request form where the user would need to select the physician responsible - we could then use Flow to send a notification to that Physician in addition to the normal email path that responses go to.

  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.

  17. Choice Questions With Multiple Answers Electronically Answered

    There needs to be a way that you can set up a multiple choice question to give +1 point for each each correct answer given, and -1 point for each incorrect answer given.

    At the moment, Forms only allows for 'max' marks, or no marks to be given (so if a student get 2/3 correct, Forms gives that student 0 - as they are not ALL correct).
