  1. Allow Forms to be created via document libraries before using the Forms site

    You cannot create and open Forms for Excel unless you've launched the Forms app from the portal pages. This needs to change and it blocks users from opening newly created Forms from within a document library.

  2. paste into forms

    Allow us to copy/paste data from Excel into Microsoft forms where each line in excel/word represents a new quiz response in the forms.
    Currently, when you paste into forms it will put all the excel/word lines into one quiz response. I am trying to paste in 70 Names and I need to copy and paste each name individually. FYI Google forms automatically corrects this and adds each name onto a new quiz response.

  3. Be able to submit questions one at a time for clicker style assessments.

    I like to either run pop quizzes where students answer one question and then I discuss it with them before having them answer the next question. I would like for students to be able to submit one answer at a time and for me to receive feedback on this answer. Socrative is a service that does this, but I want to insert my pop quizzes on One Note Class Notebook.

  4. If a question can be answered w/ multiple responses, it would be nice to branch from each one of those responses.

    If a question can be answered w/ multiple options (responses), it would be nice to branch from each one of those responses. Currently, only one branching option is offered from the general question at the top of the options.

  6. Optioin to change choice questions layout to horizontal

    Ability to change choice questions layout from vertical to horizontal. For example, true/false options take up too much space. So do choice questions with less than 4 options. It would be nice to change the layout for this questions type

  9. User Lookup Text Field

    It would be great if a field (question) existed that would allow lookup of a User in the organization.
    Example: using forms to create a time off entry, and requiring their supervisor name would perform a lookup based on the text entered; allowing a user to click on the name and thus capture their email address automatically.

  16. Allow the form creator the ability to respond to survey results. But still keep form user anonymous. Pulse Survey

    It would be nice to be able to initiate pulse surveys, receive responses anonymously, and then respond to the anonymous survey taker while keeping them anonymous, to discuss some sort of issue that needs to be addressed.

  18. API for Microsoft Forms

    My org is looking at creating a wraparound micro-surveying service, and since we're already in O365 the Forms platform looked promising. However, being able to access the basic functions of forms from a programmatic end is critical in us both being able to create surveys based on some provided user input and then automatically create a report on the back end once data has been collected. Most enterprise surveying platforms like surveymonkey have an API which allows for all of this, but Microsoft Forms does not. Seems like a missed opportunity.
