  4. 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!!

  5. 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.

  13. Comment box in forms

    Can we add comment box at the end of every questions in Forms. I have given option of "others" to my respondents but that is hurting my reporting purpose in excel. Since I have allowed them for multiple answering for example they have to either answer yes or no (mandatory) and for comments they can select others. but while downloading the file in excel. I have to do a lot of work to separate the responses since comments has been treated as a choice.

  18. 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.
    .

  19. 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.

  20. Add a free-form quantitative response option for matrix-type questions.

    Similar to the Likert, be able to have the user fill in a number for each combination of Option and Statement. Each grid square could accept a number response. It's essentially a small spreadsheet grid for responses.
