  1. remove the "create your own form" link once a response has been submitted

    Once a response has been submitted, an option to "create your own form" is provided. Suggestion would be to remove this and only accept responses from this link vs. creating a new survey.

    • Add an option to collect Name and Email

      The on/off setting to collect the Name and Email would be a great help to the form. We can avoid these options in survey and focus only on Survey questions.

      In further we can couple of fucntionalities as follows
      1. Avoid duplicate response with same email
      2. User will have ability to update the response by sending an unique link as part of survey response.
      3. Email validation ca be done.
      4. Have an option to email validation to avoid unnecessary submissions.

        • Allow multiple responses, but provide a cap to the number of responses.

          Forms and quizes need an option to and allow multiple responses from a single user, but to limit the number of responses to a number selected by the form's author.

          An example of this would be allowing a student to re-take a quiz if they failed it the first time. The teacher decides that they want to give the student up to 3 attempts to pass the quiz. Or a student passes the quiz the first try, but thinks they can do better the second time. The original scores would still be recorded, but the highest score is the one…

          • Privacidad

            poder exigir que la respuesta escrita por un usario no pueda ser leida por gente a su alrededor, es decir; que cuando el usuario de la encuesta conteste alguna pregunta de maxima privacidad, en vez de ver la respuesta escrita se vea *******
            ejemplo, pregunto la edad, el encuestado pone 34 y si alguine pasa por detras y mira a su pantalla ve el numero 34, yo quiero que se copie la seguridad de las contraseñas, cuando escribimos 34 que se vea **
            solo en las respuestas que yo lo indique

            • Field Privacy settings in Forms

              Field Privacy settings. It should be possible to indicate if data entered in a form field should be:
              a) publicly visible (in public result report etc)
              or
              b) only visible to specific people / c) people in your organization (especially important if collecting user information in Forms) If set, the data would only be shown if you have rights to it.

              • Offer the ability to hide characters being typed in a field, like for passwords.

                Place "*" characters in filed for each character typed by user.

                • Make it clear that Microsoft forms are not stored on your tenant and are very different from forms in onedrive

                  The naming of applications is appalling, there is nothing to make it clear to people that this info is stored outside our tenant and that we cannot administer it beyond turning off/on. The option to do a form within onedrive/our tenant is great, this is confusing and impossible for administration.

                  • Limit one response per respondent

                    I would be sending the link to different emails (outside the org).
                    I would like to restrict the recipient to fill the form only once per form. If they go again to the link, they can see a readonly version of what they submitted.

                    Optional editing capability also welcome.

                    • Limit access within org for designated users

                      I would love the ability to share with only certain levels of employees here within the org. Currently, only options are anyone with link, and only people within org. Need to distinguish levels, job titles, etc.

                                    ***************
                                    ■Description(内容):
                                    現時点では Microsoft Forms では外部からアクセスするための API は提供されておらず、外部プログラムから情報を取得できません。そのため、今後の機能の向上ため、Microsoft Forms においても外部からアクセスするための API の提供を要望いたします。​

                                    Lately, I am concerned that the information from external programs cannot be obtained because API for external access is not provided as a current Microsoft Forms feature.

                                    In order to make a more user-friendly function, please consider providing "API for external access" to Microsoft Forms as well.

                                    Thank you for your consideration.

                                      I'd like to create new form that allows people who have submitted a prior form to target specific data they submitted before. The specific scenario...

                                      Survey 1: "Which user would you like to add to the beta?" (manual text input)
                                      Survey 2: "You have submitted these two users to the beta, which would you like to remove" (multi-select check box)

                                      • Allow Microsoft Flow to delete a form response once it has been acted on.

                                        For security, I would like to take a response and send it to a user restricted folder in OneDrive and then have the response automatically delete. I can do the former using Microsoft Flow but there is no way to delete the response, without going in to Forms and Responses.

                                        • Specify location of Data

                                          Very useful tool but it would be really helpful if we could pick where the data is held (i.e. not on an MS server but one that we designate within our own infrastructure).
                                          Is forms backended by SQL Server if so is the data encrypted at rest?
