    Dear Forms customers,

    Thanks for your patience for the long wait on file upload.

    File upload v1 – for internal survey, has been enabled on full production. It would be great if you could provide feedback for us. This survey may take you about 3 minutes to finish.

    We are working with SharePoint team to enable file upload v2 – for external survey, we will reach out your soon for more feedback.

    Thank you for your time!

  2. 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.

    Dear Forms customers,

    Thanks for your patience on waiting the progress bar of Forms. We have started to working on this feature. To better understand your requirements on progress bar, would you mind share your expectation by filling the following survey? It may take you about 2 minutes to finish.

    Thank you very much.

  4. 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.

  5. Branding improvement - Custom theme, logo, background image, header, CSS

    Would like to be able to customize colors, background images, fonts, of all sections of forms. Would really like to be able to change the header to include a full width image option, and to be able to remove text and their spaces in areas that do not require them.

    If we could design and upload our own complete themes that would be wondrous, but any type of customizing to help with the overall design would be great.

  6. Customize the response page.

    The owner is able to customize the response page and how it looks. Be able to choose which graphs. Also better way to view the details. With the option to include the date and time the responses were filled out.

  8. add Upload attachments such as photo photos

    It is recommended to add the option to upload photos and upload attachments (the photos are inserted in the excel form, and the attachments can display hyperlinks in the excel form)

  10. Please include file upload option in the Microsoft forms to enable better use of the forms functionality for enterprise customers

    The users should be able to upload the file and this should be available as a link in the form responses to be visible to the form owners.

  12. Enable custom/pipe data into responses/answers as prefilled default

    First of all, I love the new Forms Pro app, especially the use as Voice of Customer app. For these purposes, it would be quite essential, to use piped data not only in survey email, survey header and questions texts, but also into answers as default to be confirmed or edited.

    E.g. Q: Could we call you {{Salutation}} to your mobile phone? We have this {{mobile}} number in our records. A: default/prefilled/piped text would be {{mobile}} from custom data...

    This could hugely improve usability of the forms.

    Regards,

    Jan

  13. Limit how many can answer on Forms

    Hi. It would be very beneficial to have an option to limit the maximum responses in general for a form. I.E. We would have a FirstAid course at our company, but the spots are limit to 20 pr. date. It would be such an improvement to have a limitation on how many can select a date and display how many spots are left for instance

    Dear Forms Pro Users,
    We are working on a feature to specify a limit on the number of responses that can be accepted for the Survey. Once the limit is reached, the Survey will be closed for additional respondents.

    Also, we are working on adding a capability to close the survey after a specified number of days from sending the survey invite to a respondent.

    Both these will be options that can be set at Survey level.
    Regards,
    Forms Pro Team
