  1. Take Forms to the next level

    This would be invaluable with a few additions:

    1) Checkboxes (not just radio)
    2) email alerts when completed to Form owner(s)
    3) Ability to attach files (20-50mb)
    4) Ability to turn completed forms into tasks or "to do lists"
    5) "if this... then" when creating the questions would be great. So some questions might "unlock" other questions.(slightly different than branching).
    6) ability to link dates to a shared calendar (making due dates and reminders possible

      • Add ability to insert sections, titles and instructional text

        Make it possible to add sections (Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3) before or between questions, with the ability to provide "sub-title" text. For example, a section providing instructions for the next few questions.

        • ability to e-mail user's responses back them

          ability to e-mail user's responses back them, of course the user has to put the e-mail as on of the questions. Also a way to put this at the end of form. "A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided." MICROSOFT FORMS MUST be better than Google forms/surveys! Google forms has that option. See example.

          • More Field Types

            More types of fields with richer options must be available.
            If Forms is meant to compete with market leaders in this sector, it cannot offer just 4 types of fields it currently offers. See attached screen shots of how many types of field other services are offering.

            Also, you need richer options. For example: you cannot offer only one type of date formatting. We use dd/mm/yyyy in Europe. Americans use the mm/dd/yyyy. The form creator must be able to define the desired format.

            In general, we need more types of fields and more advanced control options for each type of…

              • Advanced Branching -Enable ability to skip/hide questions

                Currently, branching works best when only two branches exist. Forms should be able to support more than two branches for a question. The end goal is to hide all irrelevant questions based on a user's response to a previous question.

                Below is a example question for this use case:
                Q: Please select your preference below.
                1. Option A
                2. Option B
                3. Option C
                4. No Preference

                Expected Functionality:
                If "No Preference" is selected, I want to skip to the end of the form.

                If "Option A" is selected, I want to skip to a specific question. The same is…

                • Allow text and Images between questions

                  You should be able to place text or an image between questions. This text is unrelated to a question and allows to have headers for different sections. This is the major sticking point

                    After each Question, I would love to have a " Add Comment" section so that the answerer can put a comment/explanation for his/her answer.

                    • Branding improvement - Custom theme, logo, background image, header, CSS

                      Would like to be able to customize colors, background images, fonts, of all sections of forms. Would really like to be able to change the header to include a full width image option, and to be able to remove text and their spaces in areas that do not require them.

                      If we could design and upload our own complete themes that would be wondrous, but any type of customizing to help with the overall design would be great.

                        • Provide a quicker way to add multiple options in an "option" style question

                          Many times, the list of options for a question of type "option" comes from some external source. Occasionally there are relatively many options (e.g.: a list of class members)
                          At this time, the only way to add them, is to repeatedly click "add option" and enter the text.
                          It should not be hard to create a way to paste a delimited text that adds all "items" as options to the question (and from there on, it's probably not hard to create even better options).

                          Note: even better would be if you could point Forms to an existing file (e.g. some…

                          • Allow the full form to be sent via email. 50%+ higher response rates when the survey is in the email body, saving respondents a click.

                            Include the survey/form within the body of an email message in addition to the link to the survey. Response rates are higher when participants can respond from within the body of an email message.

                              • Microsoft Forms の共同編集作業を特定のユーザーのみが行えるようにしたい。

                                Microsoft Forms で共有編集作業を行うためのリンクを発行した際に以下の 2 種類が選択できる
                                “Office 365 の職場または学校アカウントを持つユーザーは表示と編集ができます。”
                                “自分の組織内のユーザーのみが表示および編集可”

                                URL を知っているユーザーであれば、上記の条件に一致することで誰でも編集と表示が可能。
                                ユーザーを指定して特定のユーザーのみに Microsoft Forms の共同編集を許可したいため、機能の追加をお願いします。
