  1. Add a lookup (in dropdown) with own data input

    Having a list where the person who is filling the form can select on one parameter his own corresponding item.

    For example:
    You have a list of schools and by typing in the postal code, you only get the schools from this postal code and you can select your corresponding school

  3. Refresh Excel question order when rearranging MS Forms questions

    I have had to rearrange the question order in my Form when creating a survey, yet when I open the Form in Excel the columns are in completely the wrong order, and there are even blank column headers rather than questions.

    I have tried to move the columns around on the Excel sheet, but keep receiving an error message. I have tried 'Refreshing all connections' to see if that rectified the issue, but have has no success.

    There either needs to be a live refresh built into Forms for Excel, or there should be an option to be able to…

    [すべての回答を新しいブックへ同期する] を行うと 削除が反映される動作になる。
    しかしながら、現在、OneDrive for Business の Forms の Excel ファイルに関数を設定している為、[すべての回答を新しいブックへ同期する] を行うと新しいファイルが作成され、新たに関数を設定する必要がある。

  6. Enable forms on 'Communications' type Sharepoint sites

    It seems that only 'Teams' or 'Office Group' enabled sites allow form creation right now, which means in our org, we are unable to create and store forms on some of our existing sites.

  9. Allow Forms to be created via document libraries before using the Forms site

    You cannot create and open Forms for Excel unless you've launched the Forms app from the portal pages. This needs to change and it blocks users from opening newly created Forms from within a document library.

  12. Make form responses copy & transferable between groupus

    If you create & test a form in your own OneDrive account & want to migrate it to a SharePoint group the responses don't transfer. Seemingly you have to fill the form out multiple times. It would be nice to have an option that transfers both the form and existing form data(or not). That way a user can decide whether or not to start fresh. Also if copying & pasting results to a newly migrated forms response excel workbook works then it would be nice to see it as a recommendation.

  13. export

    Allow users to export data in a numerically coded form. For example, if you offer a multiple choice question with options "Yes" and "No" as answers, have an option to export those as numbers "1" and "2". This format is often preferred for research/statistical purposes.

    As participants have more current information available, they reenter the questionnaire and complete the answers. this creates double loggings.

  18. Allow the import responses from Excel to Forms

    I alredy have the responses of a form and I create the Form (with the same fields) using "Microsoft Forms", but I need to copy and past each response. So I suggest you to implement a button to import responses from Excel.
