    • Sharepoint should have the same form creation functionality

      Sharepoint should have the same form creation functionality as One Drive, which I always consider my "personal area" of SP. I.e. we should be able to create the excel file or a form from anywhere on SP, too - we´re itnerested in creating surveys that would feed Excel files we store oN SP. Maybe someone knows the solution and I have not understood? Otherwise it makes no sense to limit this functionality in such a powerful thing as SP.

      • Send scheduled e-mail for repeat response

        Hi,

        I would like to be able to setup a form and invite employees to complete it. Then after a predefined time, i.e. 1 year, have an e-mail sent out automatically, asking the respondent to complete the form again.

        This would be useful to collect survey data annually and reduce the administrative burden, especially for an organisation with 1000's of employees.

        • Sharing forms with people outside 0365

          I would like to share the forms that I create with people outside o365.When sharing the system says "Anyone with the link can view and edit" but they are confronted with a 0365 login.

            • If no entry in others then don't count it

              if there is no entry in others then why count it.
              I'm applying that to a multiple question. Specifically a list of names and if a name is missing then that name can be added.

              • Forms - let me print out the sum total of answers (names and answers) in as few pages as possible. Excel is print-unfriendly

                • Send the email notification to the team not the user who initiated it especially when the form was created in Microsoft teams

                  Group 1 has 3 users (user 1, user 2, user 3)
                  group 1 is integrated with Microsoft teams

                  User 1 creates a channel, then in that he initiates a form in a new tab. He also adjusts the settings. he checks the box "Email notification of each response"

                  But when we get a response on the form

                  only user 1 gets the email.

                  shouldn't it be logically that group 1 gets the email not just user 1

                    • assign numerical values to text ratings

                      I am creating a survey where I'm asking respondents to rate items on a rudimentary "Very Bad" to "Very Good" scale. However, I'd like to for those ratings to correspond to values 1 through 5 on the back end to analyze and chart in Excel (e.g. "Very bad" = 1, "Bad" = 2, etc). Doing a Find & Replace in Excel is very messy and creates too many opportunities to inadvertently change the data.

                      • Have "Add comments" on Forms

                        After each Question, I would love to have a " Add Comment" section so that the answerer can put a comment/explanation for his/her answer.

                        • Display message in the forms

                          In quiz there is the option to display a message when an answer is ticked. However you can only use this if there is a correct answer. It would be extremely useful to have this option for a message box in forms as well so when the respondent selects an answer and submits the form they can immediately see comments based on their responses.

                          • More Form Details on Dashboard

                            It would be super helpful if you could get a 'Details' view on the Dashboard like in Window's Explorer. This would allow sorting by creation date, seeing the author (on OtherForms) and other details that would help tell similar forms apart from each other. Sometimes the brief titles are not enough to know which is which, especially when starting with the same template multiple times.

                            • "Estimated" time to complete

                              It would be great to add the estimated typical time to complete the survey based on the type of questions in advance in addition to the average completion time. So while sharing the survey link, we can notify users of the time expected from them to complete the form.

                                    It would be great if we could exploit the answers as variables to personalize questions...

                                    Exemple :

                                    Q1 : what's your name ?
                                    Resonse : "John"

                                    Q2 : Hi %variable Q1% (John in my exemple), nice to meet you...

                                    • Update date handling logic to handle this millennium

                                      Update the "date" field logic so that a 2-digit year ("17") resolves to this millennium ("2017" instead of "1917"). Many users will enter a date as, eg, 11/17/17 - this will resolve (in the responses) as 11/17/1917.

                                      • Allow duplicate quizzes to merge results.

                                        Teachers would like the ability to give copies of the same quiz to different class periods. (Three different 10th grade English classes take the same Julius Caesar assessment, for example, but the quiz is copied and separated into 1st Period, 2nd Period, and 3rd Period. The ability to merge the results of those three quiz copies into one "all classes" results would be nice. That way we can have results for how each individual class did on the same quiz, as well as see how all the classes combined did.

                                        • Include subtitles in response output

                                          I really like Forms, but I just discovered something that almost makes them useless in my current use case.
                                          I can "group" questions at design time by using a common Title but different subtitles within each set of questions.
                                          However, the Responses lose the subtitle making the answers useless. Since I use the Excel file to port answers to another application, I can't use subtitles to distinguish questions within the Titled group.
