  1. Add ability to insert sections, titles and instructional text

    Make it possible to add sections (Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3) before or between questions, with the ability to provide "sub-title" text. For example, a section providing instructions for the next few questions.

      • Connect results to Excel as a data source rather than opening a new workbook each time

        The form is great in terms of collecting responses. That said, if you need to view all the data at once, you need to open the form results in Excel. If you do that, it appears to open a separate result each time. There is no way to edit the results workbook. For example, I want to add a column to the results where I can keep track of whether or not I have contacted the person since they have filled out the form. If I add that column to the table, it will be gone when I next click…

          Hi Forms users,

          Thanks for using Microsoft Forms and providing feedback.

          We just enabled a new feature “Forms for Excel” for all Microsoft Forms customers. When you create Forms for Excel in your OneDrive for Business / modern SharePoint team sites, you will get an Excel workbook at the same time. All the responses data will show up in your Excel workbook in real time.

          You could get more detail from – https://aka.ms/formsforexcel

          Please be free to leave comments if you have any question.

          Regards,
          Microsoft Forms Team

        • To have options for creating folders in Forms.

          I suggest Microsoft Forms team to think of an option to create folders and then create forms in it.

          So that I can have all the forms related to one activity in one folder and also searching becomes easy.

          Moreover, the dashboard looks clutter free.

          Kindly give a thought.

            tell us more  ·  ruoyingl responded

            Thanks all for your feedbacks and suggestions. As you may noticed, we’ve added two features to help you find target forms easier:
            1. Search box. You can find a form by search the form name or form owner.
            2.Form’s theme is shown in form card. If you are using different themes for different type of forms, it’s easier to find out forms by color.

            Does the new feature help? Could you tell us more if the new feature doesn’t solve your problem?

          • Allow authenticated but anonymous responses with one response per person

            Forms should allow you to check the settings boxes for "record name" and "one response per person" independently. For things like voting we only want one vote, we want people to login to vote, but we do not want to see their name. Forms can store voting history to enforce single responses but should not need to display it to the Form owner.

            • Allow for a dropdown box

              It would be nice to have a drop down box for users to be able to select one or more choices instead of having to look at a long list of options. It makes the survey appear longer than it is and crowds the page.

                • Print the Form (not only results, just the empty form)

                  The empty form in Forms would be possible to print or export as an PDF.

                    It would be really nice to have a built in progress bar so people could see how much of a survey they have left

                        • ability to e-mail user's responses back them

                          ability to e-mail user's responses back them, of course the user has to put the e-mail as on of the questions. Also a way to put this at the end of form. "A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided." MICROSOFT FORMS MUST be better than Google forms/surveys! Google forms has that option. See example.

                              • Allow the ability to create page breaks in the form to enhance the branching feature.

                                Add a page break feature so that you can separate questions in a longer survey. This will also enhance the branching feature by allowing questions to "jump" to a defined page.

                                • Allow an O365 Group to be the owner of a Form

                                  I have an Office 365 Group that requested a Form and I had one of the members create the form and give the other members the "share to collaborate" link.

                                  The issue is that this is a group with revolving members and the current Form owner will be leaving the group to be replaced with another.

                                  CURRENT WORK AROUND: Create a service account that will be used for scenarios like this, create the Form under this account, and share the "share to collaborate" link with the group.

We want to be able to enter teacher feedback into the form and email the responses to the teacher, assistant principal and principal.

                                    • Ability to change date format to correspond to the user's region

                                      Hi. In the question type where a date is required currently the only option (as far as I can see) is the US format. Can you kindly give us the ability to choose the region settings for this please? Thanks.

                                      • display one question per page for studetns

                                        Give form creators the option to display questions one per page to help students focus and to help save student progress on a longer assessment.

                                        • Allow user to set a limit for the total number of responses that can be submitted (form shuts down after X number of submissions)' has been

                                          I'd like an option where you can limit the amount of people who can chose a certain question or option. In Google docs you can do this via a script. It is essential if you want to use Forms for registering (in schoolwork it is a common activity to make registry-lists)
