  1. 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

  2. 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/

  3. 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".

  5. Marked priority of options

    If several options are marked, indicate the order of priority (1st, 2nd, 3rd ...)

    Example:

    Question

    Option 1: Value 3
    Option2: Value 4
    Option3: Value 5
    Option 4: Value 2
    Option 5: Value 1

  6. Allow submission of HTML formatted text in the long text response box

    Allow submission of HTML formatted text in the long text response box. This would allow the user to format (bold, italic, font size variations, text colors, etc) the text inside the box. Ideally formatted text could be pasted. Formats could be set then with a WYSIWYG editor and html formatting toolbar.

  7. Allow returned long answer to be formatted/broken into the paragraphs like the original. Right now, the response appears as a long string.

    Allow text long answer responses to appear at least close to the formatting (paragraph/new lines) that the original answer had. Right now new paragraphs and empty lines get all run together. It all appears as a long continuous single paragraph. This is a suggestion from teachers at our school who turn to Google's equivalent for these things that require these types of questions.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.)

  12. 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.

  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.

  15. 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.

  19. 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.
