  2. Allow forms to be saved in to a location that all employees can see, edit and use. (removing the need to share everything and send links)

    Please create a location where you can save forms such that they are then available to all users in our organization. Right now you need to share via link. Anything in said group should just be available to all users in the organization.

    We are going to use forms to create on/offboarding forms for our clients. But every team member will likely create several of these forms. It would be great if we could just drop them in to one place where everyone can see them.

  3. Allow the user to have the option to download a copy of their answers submitted via forms for their own records. Useful in education

    I am trying to create a form that allows data collection from a large number of individuals, approx 100, on a weekly basis.

    The participants will be undertaking training and need to submit a weekly log.

    I have created a survey using Microsoft Forms and embedded it in the VLE i use.

    The issue i face is this, the individual who completes the form/survey needs to retain a copy of the information submitted for their own records.

    Is there a way the data can be saved before submitting to a pdf or word file etc?

  4. Provide survey improvement recommendations for survey creator

    Please add functionality to provide survey improvement recommendations for the survey creator. Let Microsoft Forms actively analyze the form during creation and provide the survey creator with tips how to improve the survey set up, making it more likely people complete your survey and you receive a higher response rate.

    Provide information and recommendations such as:
    -How much time Microsoft Forms it takes for a respondent to complete the survey.
    -How complex the survey is and what the chance is people will complete their survey response instead of stepping out of the survey

  8. Rename the prompt: "Enter your answer"

    Could we range the prompt in a text field. I would need: 'Type your name here' or any other prompt.

  9. Allow notes for questions that only admin can see

    Gives the admin options to add notes to a question such as page numbers, quick references or any other notes when viewing the quiz that the students do not see while taking the quiz.

  10. Remove "Forms" from start of Forms poll question in Teams

    In Teams, when we type "@Forms Is this a question? answer1, answer2" the poll question is "Forms Is this a question?" instead of "Is this a question?"

    Also, replies to the poll post invoke @Forms again - so I always reply, delete @Forms, and say something about the poll (like "Add other options in replies.").

  11. Ability to Answer Single Question Form from Email

    It would be nice to allow users to be able to answer a single question form directly from email (similar to Microsoft Flow).

  14. Question format

    Very basic point - could we add the option to split questions?

    For example Question 1.a and Question 1.b.

    Great for customer journey.

    I wouldn't need this if the likart limit wasn't 10.

  15. change outputs of multiple selections (checkbox)

    currently all selected options show as 1 output field, would be good to have each option shown and counted separately. When these are exported to Excel I would generally have to use text to columns to separate responses and then manipulate further to be able to count occurences of each option

  16. auto-populate with specified users synchronised office365/active directory data

    I appreciate that when form entries are authored that the end user's email address is captured. It would be useful that when this occurs that other data from that user's Active Directory entry such as site location and phone number are captured on the form.

    In a large organisation for equipment procurement, this would allow questions arising from the completed form or incomplete information to be sought quickly.

  17. Security of Forms

    If yo make a Form in "Office365Forms" and i share it with a Mail Link, for example to user1 and user2, user1 could re-send the link to user3 ( I don t want that user3 answer the form) and then have an answer from user3.

    There should be a option to chosee that:
    anyone could resend the form
    or only my user.

  20. Link

    Sugiro que coloquem a opção de diminuir o link, assim como o google forms faz, pois fica melhor para enviar aos participantes.
