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

    "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.

  2. Add a way to display responses to multiple-answer questions on Forms in the order they were presented, not selected

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Forms にて複数回答が有効になっている質問の結果を選択肢順に表示させる機能を提供してほしい。
    Add a way to display responses to multiple-answer questions on Forms in the order they were presented, not selected


    選択肢を "複数回答" を可能にして回答してもらう場合、回答を [Excelシートで開く] で開くと、Excel シートのセルの中で選んだ選択肢は回答者が選んだ順番に表示されてしまいます。
    例えば、<1> ~ <5> まで選択肢があり、<1> ~ <4> まではチェックボックスによる選択、<5> は自由記述の場合、<2> → <5> 自由記述 → <3> の順にチェックを入れると、Excel シートのセルの中では [<2>;<5> 自由記述;<3>;] のように、選択順で表示されてしまうので、どの順番で選んでも選んだものが <1> → <5> の順 ([<2>;<3>;<5> 自由記述;]) に表示される機能を提供してほしい。

    If you allow “multiple answers” for a multiple choice question, opening responses using “Open in Excel” will show selected answers in a cell in the order the respondent selected the,
    For example, if there are responses numbered 1~5, where 1~4 are check boxes…

  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. 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.

  7. Enstella Exchange EDB Recovery Software

    For example, says for instance your computer’s hard disks develop some bad sectors and consequently the EDB file on it gets affected. This means that the offline data that you had been working on in your machine that is stored in the EDB will be lost.
    The only effective way to tackle such situations is to use an EDB to PST Converter tool such as the one from Enstella. Once the conversion is complete you can access mails, contacts, journals, notes, calendar entries etc from the PST from importing it to Outlook.

  8. 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…

    Students would understand the curriculum more easily

    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.

  11. 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…

  13. Allow changing the text displayed with the "other" option

    Using the word "other" when allowing a fill in the blank option at the bottom of multiple choice leads to people who don't align with the options to feel like they don't belong. It appears though as then they don't belong. I would like to allow people the chance to fill in the blank for an option, but I don't want the word "other" to be there. Happy to speak on this more. I just recently learned and think it's still something many people are learning! Thank you!!

  14. enable basic text formatting for long answer form responses

    If a form is used to submit information and a long answer box is used, the line breaks and bold etc are stripped out when the form is submitted. How about a simple option of rich text or similar.

  15. 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.

    Customize rating items when creating questions

    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.

  18. Likert - Limit number of answers per column

    It would be very interesting if in Likert type of questions we could somehow set a limit to the number of answer per column.

    Right now, you can only choose 1 option per row, but sometimes we need to set a limit of answers per column, so that, for example, in a Likert with 10 statements, participants can only answer up to 3 of the statements with 5 points, up to 3 statements with 4 points, etc.

    I hope you can consider this option

    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…
