  1. External Users be able to upload files

    External users can upload files to forms. Only users that are within the org can upload files. This is impractical for Non-profit customers that want to use forms to get files from volunteers. For forms to work, you have to licenses every user, this case every volunteer, with an account in order to upload a file. Other form solutions allow anyomous file uploads.

    This creates issues now using another forms solution, then using Zapier to get the file ingested to a OneDrive location, and then finally using Flow ("power automate") to get that file into a Sharepoint library.

    OR... you…

  2. Please prioritize including Somali, Oromo and Tigrinya in Microsoft Forms

    Prioritize the following languages to increase local (Seattle) accessibility to Microsoft Forms. The City of Seattle uses Microsoft Forms to gather feedback from community members.

    The top 15 languages in Seattle includes:
    • Somali (at least 10,000 residents)
    • Oromo (at least 5,000 residents)
    • Tigrinya (at least 5,000 residents)

  3. Add better response validation.

    Add response validation to say that you can't enter certain data into a certain question (like number length and content, text length and content, valid email addresses, etc.). Like Google Forms. I had a Google Form and I am trying to convert it to Microsoft Forms but I need Response Validation!!!

  4. Enable users to alter form title and description to dark text on a white background in order to improve accessibility

    Currently it is only possible to display the title and description of a form as white text on a dark or coloured background. This can reduce accessibility for those with visual impairments. I would like to be able to edit the title and description to display as dark text on a light background.

  6. Add more supported languages

    The multilingual support is great but we need more languages, especially African languages i.e. Somali and Oromo. We're able to offer most of the languages spoken in our area but the specific lack of African languages make it tough for us to reach those communities.

  7. Import/export between Word files

    As a teacher starting to use Forms for quizzes and tests, it would be extremely helpful to do these two things:
    1) allow to import an existing quiz or test that was created in Word so that it populate the Title, directions, and all questions into the Forms fields. I can imagine that the user may have to do some reformatting of the original Word document so as to not confuse the conversion process, but it shouldn't be that hard to implement.
    2) allow to also export the form into a word document so that a hardcopy can be printed…

  10. Add ability to create / share language-specific survey links for multilingual surveys.

    Permit form creators to share language-specific survey links rather than requiring recipients to recognize that they can change the language via the dropdown. This can be politically inappropriate.

  11. Allow pictures for answer choices on Forms

    As a teacher for students with significant cognitive disabilities, my students rely heavily on picture supports. It's a challenge for them to try to answer answers when I cannot add a picture directly into a picture choice. I am able to use a likert scale and "line up" answer choices with the likert option, but when I use that option, I cannot record a correct answer. Being able to add pictures to answer choices would make Forms so much more accessible for my students, and so much easier for me to use as a teacher.

  15. allow editing of link colors in the intro

    It is not currently possible to change the link color in the intro panel, meaning it is almost invariably light blue against some dark background color (because the text is white by default). It would be better to allow us to customize the color of the text and the link or to automatically pick white or black for both based on which offers the best contrast. This is a huge accessibility oversight!

  18. Ability to Restore Deleted Responses from MS Forms

    If I delete a response form MS Forms, there is not way to restore. Deleted forms can be restored from Recycle Bin, however deleted responses just vanishes. I would like to have ability to restore deleted responses from MS Forms. I did get about 10 calls from customers asking for the same.

  20. Allow users to create folders to keep forms in. It is not practical to have them scattered like they are.

    The Forms view is terrible, I would like to be able to create folders and organize my quizes.
