  7. 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!

  8. Offline data collection

    Develop offline data collection - so that the form can be answered by any device without an internet connexion, that then syncs when an internet connection is available.

  9. allow option to set number of responses per question.

    We use form to send training invitation to our users and every session is limited to certain number of users so if there's option to set max number of response per question, it would be great!!

  10. 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.

  11. Repeating table support in Forms

    It would be great the support for using a repeating table (InfoPath) as formfields.

  12. multi part questions

    Multiple part questions

    Ability to create a question with different related answers in one question instead of multiple questions.

    EG.
    Training Required?

    Topic, Participiants, Date, Duration and Mandatory

    Have that as one question instead of 5 different questions

    Results can be treated as separate columns in excel e.g. Question 5.1 5.2, 5.3,5.4,5.5 but displayed as one question when completing the input on the form.
    .

  15. Allow to make a text box appear below a selected checkbox

    There is a feature to allow people to select more than one item, so it transform the radio button into check boxes to allow multiple selections.

    But why not adding this feature : being able to add a TEXT box that would appear below any selected item and it would let the user explain WHY he chooses this option, or check box. Labeled whit something like : Explain why you choose this answer.

  17. 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.

  18. Add a question from another form

    When adding a question, give an option to add a question from an existing form. This effectively means all questions ever used can be accessed, almost like a question bank. This would save tonnes of time.
    So you click Add Question, click Add Question from Form..., select the Form you want to get a question from, then the questions on that form are displayed with an add button next to them. You can add multiple questions from that form and hit finish when done. Something like that!

  20. GPS location

    GPS Location & Coordinates - Integration with Bing Maps allowing the Forms author to add a location, or the respondent to add GPS coordinates and a map screenshot. For example, one question could be "Where are you?" and the answer will be GPS based and pin on a Bing Map. For the results summary, the Forms owner will see the location of all respondents. Or, on a quiz, the question could be to name the country shown on the map. For a respondent, they may want to include a GPS coordinate to further describe an answer.
