  1. Fix the sync issue with responses in Excel

    Make sure responses push through onto corresponding Excel spreadsheet immediately.

    Mine have stopped coming through after 8 because, I think, I had the Excel spreadsheet open on my computer at the same time I submitted a response. I saved the spreadsheet and closed it, hoping it would merge changes but no responses will no go through and the connection between form and spreadsheet appears to be broken (despite the form being active and the responses tab showing results missing from spreadsheet). The responses tab still links to the same spreadsheet but no further responses are coming through in either web…

  4. Test Field Validation doesnt work if the field is blank.

    The mandatory text field will accept blank value and the form will proceed with out any error notification.

    If I hit a space bar in Mandatory text field it will accept.

  6. The option "Show results automatically" doesn't work

    Hi,
    After a couple tries, it seems that the option "Show results automatically" doesn't work. Whatever its value (on or off), the students always see the automatic computed result after sending their answers. This is really annoying since most of my quiz cannot be automatically corrected (it contains questions that needs textual answer). While the results is not right, it makes students panic a bit when they see it at the end.

    Moreover, the automatic results shows all the correct answers. This is really annoying when the quiz is a real evaluation. We really don't want that the other students…

  8. 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?

  9. i think we should be able to see all the forms and surveys we have taken in case we need to look back on them

    I think we should be able to see all the forms and surveys we have not only made, but the ones we have taken also. This way we can see what we said, and come back to them if we need to for information or other uses.

  10. Accessibility

    Forms are not accessible, I work for an agency that employees blind persons. When they use their screen reader, JAWS, tabbing through the form does not read off the question nor the choices.

  11. Issue - Grammar in "Between" restriction message for text inputs

    For text input, if the restriction "Between" is selected then the input field is populated with the message "Number should between x ~ y", where x and y are your restrictions.

    The word "be" is missing and the message should read "Number should be between x ~ y".

    Easy mistake, but looks silly if anyone actually reads the message before inputting their values.

  12. Problem when adding a restriction

    When enabling the restriction option on a question the default value is number. however if i want to regret and cancel, the number restriction remains (even though the selection of restriction is off)
    only way out of this situation is to create a new question and do not touch the restriction option then.

  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. edit placeholder-text

    Allow editing of the placeholder-text (prompt) and fix the current issue where if you turn on Restrictions, the placeholder-text changes to "The value must be a number", but when you turn off the restriction so that text can be entered, the placeholder-text continues to show: "The value must be a number".

  19. this value must be a number

    When you click on Restrictions, the answer box changes to "this value must be a number", even if you click out of it (without making changes). It also changes the restrictions on all added questions after this point and no way to reset it back to "Enter your answer".

    The reason I encountered this was because I was hoping that there was a Restriction to "Email Address" as opposed to a number.

  20. Not load-balance the Forms WebApp to a Hong Kong server.

    As of 9/25/17, it seems the webapp access is being routed to/through Hong Kong. My company's geo-blocking rules don't allow access when this happens. Further, as detailed in the Microsoft Forms documentation, actual user-submitted data is not supposed to be stored off-shore.
