  1. Responses to the “Other” item in “Multiple choice” questions don’t appear in results

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    "選択肢" の設問にある "その他" の回答が回答結果に加算されない動作の改善を希望
    Responses to the “Other” item in “Multiple choice” questions don’t appear in results


    ■Description(内容):
    選択肢形式の設問にある "その他" の項目で、文字列を入力できる枠内が空欄の状態でユーザーが回答した場合、応答画面の回答の要約に表示される回答数に加算されない動作を確認しています。
    社内で正確に集計を行うことができない為、本動作の改善を強く希望します。

    In multiple choice questions, the “Other” item gives users a space to input characters, but if they do, their answer does not appear in the answer totals displayed on the responses page.
    This results in internal results being incorrect, so please fix this issue.

  3. add regular expression validation, email and URLs

    I pay for Microsoft Office 365 Business and it's such a shame to have to stick with Google Forms because of the BIG lack of this kind of validations on the data input! Having regular expressions, email validation, string length validation and URL format validation would really be enough for me to finally switch to MS Forms!

  5. Have an option to disable the back button at the bottom of every question.

    This will prevent the survey respondent from going back and changing their response to a previous question. This especially helps when you have screening questions. For e.g. If I want the survey to be taken by females 18 - 24, and if a male is taking the survey, they would not qualify. However, when they mention they are male, the next screen displays -"you are not qualified". however, it also has a back button. so they can go back and change their answer. To be able to discourage such behaviour, it would be useful to have the option of removing…

  6. Function to print the “Details” screen for each question

    ■Title(件名):
    各設問の [詳細] 画面を印刷する機能の拡充を希望
    Function to print the “Details” screen for each question


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Forms において、[応答] タブ - 各設問の [詳細] をクリックした画面の印刷機能がございません。
    運用上、該当画面を印刷し配布、保管をする機会が多いため、当該機能の拡充を希望致します。

    In Forms, there is no print function on the screen you get when you click “Details” for each question in the “Reponses” tab.
    There are many cases in our operation where we would like to print this screen and distribute/retain it, so please add such a function.

  7. Forms question type

    The following question types are very much missing from O365 Forms.
    Drag-and-Drop Questions
    Pick-One Questions
    Pick-Many Questions
    Text-Entry Questions
    Hotspot Questions
    Shortcut-Key Questions
    Students would understand the curriculum more easily

  8. Adding an image to answer choices, not just the question

    When choosing answers, sometimes an image is desired next to the written answer. Currently, I have to create a .jpg of the question options and have the participant choose their answer based on the overall jpg. Not really the best way to do it.

  9. Microsoft Forms: Add option for word & character limits

    When creating a Text Question...
    Please add an option under restrictions for Text Restriction in the form of a Word Limit and a second option for Character Limit. This will help keep respondents on task when asking for "...in XX words or less..." or similar.

  10. Customize rating items when creating questions

    Customize rating items when creating questions


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、Microsoft Forms にて質問作成時の評価項目にてシンボルを数値に設定した場合、1 ~ 10 までの数値を設定できるが、"0" も選択できるような機能や左から "1 ~ 10" でなく "10 ~ 1" など表示する順番などもカスタマイズ可能な機能の拡充を希望します。

    Currently, if when creating a question the rating item is set to number format, you can set the values to 1~10, but please make it possible to select “0”, to order the values from left to right as “10 ~ 1” and to carry out other such customizations.

  11. Options in Likert scales.

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    リッカート機能の各オプションの項目について
    Options in Likert scales.


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、リッカート機能の項目では、改行機能がないため、テキストなどから改行した文章を直接ペーストし、対応している。
    ペースト後、[プレビュー] をクリックすると、改行が反映されていない状況で表示されてしまう。

    ユーザーに共有する場合に改行が反映されていないなど不安があるため、プレビュー時の改行表示および各オプションの項目にて改行ができる機能の実装を希望します。

    Currently, there is no line break function for Likert scales, so you need to directly copy-paste line breaks into them from a text editor etc.
    Having pasted it, when you click on “Preview”, the line breaks don’t show up.

    I’m concerned that line breaks won’t show up correctly for users, so please make it so that line breaks are correctly displayed in previews and can be added to option items.

    If you select “Add New” – “Likert Scale”, you cannot select anything but “Add statement”. Please add an “Other” option like when you select “Add new” – “Multiple choice”.

  13. Improve operability at survey creation in Forms

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Forms のアンケートフォーム作成時の操作性を改善してほしい。
    Improve operability at survey creation in Forms


    ■Description(内容):
    Forms のアンケートフォーム作成時に、選択肢が複数ある場合 [オプション1] に入力している途中に Enter を押すと [オプション2] の欄がアクティブになり、[オプション 1] へ戻す操作が必要になるため、 Enter を押しても [オプション2] がアクティブにならない動作へ改善してほしい。
    また、既に入力していた欄に戻って再入力する際に、既に入力してあった文字が、青く帯状に選択されいる状態で、そのまま文字を打ち込んでしまうと、選択されていた文字が消えてしまうため、青く帯状に選択されいる状態でも、そのあとに続けて文字を入力できるように改善してほしい。

    When creating a survey in Forms, if there are a number of multiple choice answers, pressing Enter while entering “Option 1” makes the entry field for “Option 2” active, which then makes it necessary to go back to Option 1. Please make it so that pressing Enter does not move on to making Option 2 active.
    Also, when going back to a field which already has data input, the already-present data…

  14. Increase the question limit from 100

    I'd like to see an increase in the 100 question limit. We are looking to convert some of our onboarding processes, but would require over 100 fields (with branching) on a single form. Unlimited would be great, but 200 is workable.

  15. More Quiz types for Education quizzes


    1. Fill in the blanks or drag the words and drop

    2. Matching or drag and drop method

    3. Sequencing (Reordering blocks )
      4.Hotspots

    Educators who use your Microsoft teams would like this flexibility when creating quizzes for differentiation and flexibility. It would also make MS forms a far superior to its competitors such as google forms imho.

    Please consider.

  16. Folder name in Forms when "File Upload" question is created

    *English follows Japanese

    Forms で "ファイルのアップロード" の設問が作成された時に作成されるフォルダーの名前について
    Folder name in Forms when "File Upload" question is created


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Forms で "ファイルのアップロード" の設問が作成されると、フォームの作成者の OneDrive for Business 上に [アプリ]-[Microsoft Forms]-[(フォームのタイトル名)] でフォルダー作成されます。
    [(フォームのタイトル名)] のフォルダーは、"ファイルのアップロード" の設問が作成された時の名前が付きますが、フォームのタイトル名を変更しても、紐づくフォルダーの名前は変更されません。
    このため、フォームのタイトル名を変更した際に連動して、紐づくフォルダーの名前が変更され、[フォームのタイトル名=紐づくフォルダーの名前] となるように要望します。

    When a "File Upload" question is created in Microsoft Forms, a folder is created on the creator's OneDrive for Business with the name being [app]-[[Microsoft Forms]-[<form's title>].
    This [<form's title>] folder assumes the name when the "File Upload" question was created. But modifying the form's title does not change the corresponding folder name.
    Please rectify this.

  20. Add searchable dropdown list as an option for a microsoft forms question

    I would suggest adding the option for a searchable dropdown list in your microsoft forms. With adding this searchable drop down list it negates the need for an individual to create many options for their users to answer a simple question/field. For example, if a companies employee uses a form and needs to select 1 of 400 options you can see where a searchable drop down list would be ideal. The work around of this situation is quite difficult without having to purchase an app or software of somesort. Aside from being innovative, I believe it would be highly useful…
