  2. Dynamically extend "other" option answer box based on respondents answer length

    Usability bug - "Other" answer textbox seems limited to showing 15 chars. Respondents need to back arrow to see/validate their long answers.

  3. Students responses don't always save.

    When a student quiz takes longer than 1 period, the work does not save for every student. It usually saves for most of the class, but for a few students, all of their previous responses will have been deleted. Has anyone else had this issue?

  4. Issue - Restrictions make the field mandatory

    I have a field that have a restriction.
    The number must be between 0 and 300. This field is not mandatory but if let this field empty I have a message that I need to fill this field with a number 0 and 300...
    The restrictions should by apply only if the field is filled or mandatory.
    If it's not mandatory and not filled we should't have a restriction.

  5. Issue - Duplication of Data

    This morning I'm refreshing 4 excel sheets with form data from yesterday, and I'm getting duplicate data inputted onto my sheet. The widget on the right also is showing duplicate messages too for the data pull (8 new responses message....twice).

  8. Recycle deleted responses

    It would be nice to have the option to recover deleted response of a given survey. I made a copy of my form and the responses on the original were deleted. Now I have no way of getting them back.

  9. to change the way radio buttons are marked in the web page...

    I am a student and all of our exams are being conducted on this platform.
    Many times after selecting an option, we scroll up and down the page using "two-finger scroll" on our laptops.
    Sometimes when both fingers don't fall at the same time, a click happens.
    In the web page I have observed that the whole line along an option or radio button is responsive for selection.
    This issue of the responsive area not being confined to the radio button makes the page prone to selection change.
    I have lost many marks due to this because the other option…

  10. allow to format the form so that the printing has less space between the questions and is more economical on the paper

    I suggest to add a print option for less lost of space and less paper use when printing the final form.

  11. Correct the response chart for text answers. It is case sensitive, whereas the grading is not.

    Grading of text questions does not take into account upper and lower case characters - which is what one expects. However the response chart does take it into account. Therefore "apple", "Apple" and "APPLE" would show as three different columns. They should be consolidated as "apple" unless in future there is an option to make the answer case sensitive.

  12. Printing Results

    I regularly go through the process of navigating to Responses, clicking View Results, clicking the three dots to the right, and clicking Print Response.
    Occasionally, it will print all pages correctly, though this is very rare.
    Most often, it says it will only print the first page.
    Sometimes, there is no response, as in no print box appears.
    This is an ongoing issue that costs me a lot of time and frustration. Please fix it.
    I MUST be able to print the results of our forms because we keep completed forms on file for three years as part of the…

  13. timestamp is wrong during daylight savings time

    The timestamp on responses to our form does not seem to take daylight savings time into account. This is an issue for us as we have a daily cutoff time for submissions.

  14. How to Fix Broken Links between the Form and the Excel Online File When the Excel File is Moved

    It is very problematic when an Excel file on SharePoint is moved and the link to the Form is broken. I can't find a way to restore it. The form becomes unusable and I have to start from scratch. Very frustrating.

  15. Microsoft Forms in teams does not work for external users in a meeting

    When in a meeting with external user, the external user won't be able to send its response to a form created in the meeting with Microsoft Forms integration for Teams (see image herewith).

    The form created is available for anonymous user and can be filled in the browser when the link is sent to the user. However it does not work inside teams which is a bug.

    There is an error message that is displayed "An error occured..." when the user clicks on the Send button. When looking in the network developper tools, we can see that there is a…

  17. Formatting of Long Answer Type Questions

    Long Answer Formatting does not retain how it was typed by the participant. Indentation, numbering, bullet points are only displayed correctly after the participant submitted the form. But when the form owner review the answers individually, every words are displayed in one continuous lines which doesn't make sense. Please try to fix ASAP

  18. Allow more questions / sections in a form

    Why doesn't forms allow more than 100 questions?

    I tried building a form with several sections and got stuck at the 100th question... All that hard work wasted :(

    Also there's a bug while trying to skip sections using the Go to option at the end of the section. it doesn't allow to go to a specific section, only to Advance or Skip to the End of the Form.

  19. I should be able to move answer options up and down

    So when adding Answers I should be able to move the answer up and down in the list. For instance answer 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. I think if I wanted to move 5 to where four is there should be an arrow up and down to move it there rather than re writing all the answers.

  20. Allow updates/corrections to form entries

    Allow an admin to update Forms entries after they've been made. This is essential for scrubbing data that will be pulled into Excel. Often times the person making the entry will get creative or not follow directions and the result is a data entry that is useless and needs to be then cleaned up.
