  1. add digital signature

    I ask that you please add the digital signature to the application-forms, as one of the options to add a literal return, list selection, etc. The plug-in is necessary for ongoing administrative forms of schools which parents must sign. I know that digital signature application technology is known to Microsoft. Would change to be implemented in the coming days to the schools who have organizational 365 system can promote its use.

  3. External Users be able to upload files

    External users can upload files to forms. Only users that are within the org can upload files. This is impractical for Non-profit customers that want to use forms to get files from volunteers. For forms to work, you have to licenses every user, this case every volunteer, with an account in order to upload a file. Other form solutions allow anyomous file uploads.

    This creates issues now using another forms solution, then using Zapier to get the file ingested to a OneDrive location, and then finally using Flow ("power automate") to get that file into a Sharepoint library.

    OR... you…

  4. More options for video upload - e.g. Stream, OneDrive

    It would be nice if videos could be uploaded from the computer, OneDrive or Stream, not just from YouTube.

  6. Add Check Box

    Add an option for a simple check box instead of just radio button selections. This would be more useful when creating a true form type entry and not a quiz or survey where you may have multiple choice.

  7. 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.

  9. Allow the full form to be sent via email. 50%+ higher response rates when the survey is in the email body, saving respondents a click.

    Include the survey/form within the body of an email message in addition to the link to the survey. Response rates are higher when participants can respond from within the body of an email message.

  10. Transfer ownership of Forms from one group to another group

    Ability to transfer ownership of a Form from one Office 365 Group to a different Office 365 Group. Often one group will create the forms during a time-limited project but then need to hand over the form at the end of the project to a different group who will use, manage and maintain the form moving forwards. Currently there is no obvious way to move a form out of one group to a different group.

  11. Add Captcha section at end of form

    If the form is open to the general public, then I guess it is vulnerable to spamming. It would be good to add a Capthcha section at the end, to weed out the bot-responses.

  12. Integrate Forms with SharePoint.

    The ease of use Forms provide would make building request apps, approval apps, and calendar apps much easier.

  13. Add the option to copy a question form one form to another

    This feature would allow teachers to share questions with other teachers and to create question banks

  14. Allow text and Images between questions

    You should be able to place text or an image between questions. This text is unrelated to a question and allows to have headers for different sections. This is the major sticking point

  15. Allow multiple forms to be assigned to single workbook as separate sheets

    My scenario: I run multiple trainings each week. I create Forms from Excel to tie the data to OneDrive and Sharepoint (depending), which is great, but each form has to be in a separate workbook, even though it creates a new sheet for the form. It would be VERY helpful to generate multiple forms from a single workbook, each as its own sheet, so I could collect all forms for a particular class, topic or timeframe, as I see fit.

  16. Limit number of choices in multiple choice

    In Microsoft Forms currently it is possible to have multiple choice questions were we can set only one choice or many choices. I would like to see an option were we can have specified number of choices allowed, say 2, 3 or 4 out of the available options. Instead of One or all.

  19. Increase the 200 form limit

    Please allow for more than a maximum of 200 forms.

    I've recently reached this limit after using the forms to check for understanding of concepts. (5 class/day, 5 days/week = 25 potential forms / week = 200 forms in 8 weeks).

    There seems to be no way to save them (export/import) so you have to lose some forms already created to give room for new ones.

  20. 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.
