  2. not applicable

    A survey we use use a rating system of 1-5 which works very well with the current setup. However all questions may not be applicable (N/A).

    I would the option to add a N/A button on top of the 1-5 rating. I don't feel that not answering the question is necessarily the same.

  3. correct the typo in the iframe embed code.

    When you create a form and select "Share", then "</>"(i.e. embed). There is a typo in the iframe embed code, that causes the embed code not to work. In the src attribute, there should be a quotation mark at the start, but instead there is a space. See attachment.

    My setup is Win10 + Chrome.

  4. Enable a note field for each question of the survey

    It will be nice to have the chance to enable a note filed for each question, so who is compiling the survey can add personal note to the replied question.

  6. Correct the response chart for text answers. It is case sensitive, whereas the grading is not.

    Grading of text questions does not take into account upper and lower case characters - which is what one expects. However the response chart does take it into account. Therefore "apple", "Apple" and "APPLE" would show as three different columns. They should be consolidated as "apple" unless in future there is an option to make the answer case sensitive.

  7. Highlight unmatched characters in incorrect text answers

    Thank you very much for the new feature where text answers are automatically graded. My idea is to improve this great feature. Currently when learners answered incorrectly they are shown the correct answer with their incorrect answer. However, there are many times where their answer is partly correct and it would help them to see their mistake better if all unmatched characters are highlighted. This should be a simple feature to implement. Eg. correct answer is: The yolk of an egg is yellow. Student answered: The yolk of an egg is white. "white" should appear in red.

  8. security role for reviewer

    Having only 2 roles (admin and responder) is limiting. I would like to have a 'reviewer' role where someone can review responses, but in a Read Only model. Currently, anyone with the link to see responses can delete them.

  9. Allow option/toggle for form respondants to see running results for poll type questions

    Allow the form creator to enable or disable an option to allow form respondents to see a running result of poll type questions once they have submitted their answers. But without revealing personal information.

  10. Add the graphs to the export functionality

    While the export functionality is solid, so far (with several of the other idea's about exporting great ideas), it would be really helpful if the bar graphs and pie charts and etc exported to Excel, Word, PPT, etc when the rest of the data was exported.

  13. New field type: Person lookup

    Hi,
    It would be very useful to be able to have a lookup field for looking up persons in the organization. Similar to the Person field type in Sharepoint.

  14. implement combined type matrices

    Please add:


    • basic matrices (all checkbox, number, dropdown, etc)

    • combined type matrices (each column a different type)

    See http://surveyjs.org/builder look for matrix (dynamic rows)

    Google Forms does not have this.

  16. make answers available to respondent

    On the response page there should be a link to "review my answer(s)". This is particularly useful when collecting multiple responses from each user, when you want your users to know what they answered, but do not want to allow them access to others' answers. (Employees' wishlist type of form)

    The review page could be exactly like the one presented from the collaboration link, but answers filtered to show only those from the logged-in user. The ability to delete particular responses should perhaps be optional...

  18. Equation against two fields

    It should be possible to create a field as a result of two number fields. (I.e. sum field 1 and field 2). This field may be hidden or visible to the user.
