  1. Restore locations

    Currently if you have to restore data in Forms then you can ONLY restore to the live "space". If your form is still live this will break future forms responses and create either duplicate or replacement responses per ID.

    This is a VERY poor solution for a restore - you should be able to restore the data to an alternative location or data file for examination that doesn't affect the live form and subsequent responses.

  2. Enhanced restore period

    Currently, according to the Product Group forms data can be restored for up to 30 days post "deletion" or loss.

    This restore period should be a longer period of time (perhaps 90 or 180 days) to reflect simmilar restore periods in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business.

  3. Edit font by bolding, highlighting, underlining, size, italics, etc.

    I need to be able to edit the text as I create questions and answer choices. For example, I need to be able to bold, highlight, underline, change font size, italics, etc. in order to draw attention to an important part of the question and/or answer for my students.

  4. Restore deleted questions and/or sections

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    削除した設問やセクションを復元する機能について
    Restore deleted questions and/or sections


    ■Description(内容):
    Forms の編集中に誤って設問を削除してしまった場合、復元することが出来ません。
    また、回答を既に収集していた設問であった場合でも内容や結果を取得することが出来ません。
    現在意図していない削除である場合でもデータが失われてしまうため、削除した設問やその回答を復元できる機能の実装を希望します。

    It is impossible at present to restore accidentally deleted questions during editing. This makes no exception to those for which we have received responses.
    Because today even unintended deletion leads to data loss, please implement a function to restore deleted questions and/or their responses.

    There is no form search function on the new start page deployed in C223901.

  6. I want to reset the ID assigned when exporting Forms results to Excel at a given interval

    Microsoft Forms の回答結果を Excel に出力した際に付与される ID を任意のタイミングでリセットしたい。
    I want to reset the ID assigned when exporting Forms results to Excel at a given interval


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Forms の回答結果を管理するために、Excel に出力して付与される ID を使用している。
    Microsoft Forms 上で回答をすべて削除して回答を取得し、Excel であらためて出力しても ID はリセットされず連番になるので管理しづらい。
    月や年単位でリセットして 1 から ID を付与できる機能の拡充を要望します。

    To manage Forms responses, we use the ID assigned when exporting to Excel.
    Since if you delete all the responses on Forms and then accept more, subsequently exporting these will use the same ID but with a number on the end, which makes management challenging.
    Please add a way to reset this ID to…

  8. "Choice eliminator" for multiple choice questions

    It is a pity that Microsoft Forms still doesn't have a feature like the Choice Eliminator add-in on Google Forms.

    That makes tasks like scheduling quite inconvenient.

    It would be really nice to have it.

  9. An option to limit the number of responses

    I need to do registrations for events that have only limited number of seats. For that It would be great if I could do a survey that closes after certain amount of responses.

    移動、コピー、などの動作が行いにくく、大量にフォームがある場合に検索もできない。
    利用するうえで利便性が低下したため、元の動作に戻してほしい

    The screen accessed from the “Forms” icon on the Microsoft 365 portal has a different URL to the classic Forms screen (https://forms.office.com/).
    It is difficult to move and copy, and if there are lots of forms you cannot search.
    Please put it back to how it was, because this way is less useful.

  15. Templates

    Instead of creating a new form for every class scheduled, create a number of template forms that can be opened, modified, personalized if necessary before sharing.

    We make email templates for repeated emails, we make word templates for repeated items, why not forms?

    Dear Forms user,

    Greatly appreciated for sharing the feedbacks in the survey and comments. Given we’ve heard many inspiring suggestions, this survey is closed.

    Next step, we are driving the effort to onboard template to Forms users soon.

  16. Allow upload of Attachments for GCC clients

    Allow the option to upload documents, images, etc. to Forms for GCC clients. This is a MAJOR limitation and it is preventing us from fully utilizing Forms.

    You need to be a creator of a form created in your tenant to see detailed content.
    If they are not a creator, even admins cannot see such details.

    Please make it possible to add pre-specified users as co-authors to make it easier for people to check form content.

    Add a way for admins to check details of forms created by users in a tenant


    監査ログを使用し Microsoft Forms のアクティビティを出力した場合、フォームの各設問等、詳細な情報は出力できない動作を確認しています。

    フォームの作成者でなければ、内容を確認できません。
    共同編集をすることにより、GUI で確認することで、回避することを検討していますが、工数がかかるため、詳細な管理ができるように、当該機能の拡充を希望します。

    When using the audit logs to output Forms activities, you cannot get detailed information on each question etc. in a form.

    If you are not the creator of a form, you cannot check its content.
    We are considering using cooperative editing to allow checking of content in the GUI, but this takes a lot of work, so please add a way to allow admins to view these details.
