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.
Please let us know if you are willing to participate early dog food prog

at this point- it is already there :) and fantastic option, works well, thank you!
... Dog food? Early dog food prod? And that was written more than a year ago. Is this forum moderated by a spam bot? I'v lost a lot of faith in Microsoft once our company started using Teams, but this is a little ridiculous.

Any update to this? I'd like to use this feature so we can migrate our onboarding forms from Google Web Forms but this is too limited. Thanks!

It should also allow for tables. The likert kind of answers are very nice but responders can only choose one option per line. For a question like "click all your available days", it would be amazing for the responders to be able to choose more than one availability per day.
Isn't this feature already in the Choice question's 3 ellipses?
I would like to participate

More than happy to participate if you are still looking for volunteers.
Would be willing to participate if you are still looking for volunteers.
This feature would be logical in converting 'forms' created in word and excel docs into online forms
Second this. Should allow drop down list on mobile.
Tried PowerApps - very slow and unstable. Got back to Forms - appears long on mobile end due to many options to certain questions.
How do I get in on the early dog food program?

@NatashaSpencer, Drop-down is already available in Forms, is it not? I just created a question with a drop-down with 4 possible choices. It looks like "multiple choices" is permanently grayed out though.
But it really sounds to me like what you want to do is create a Power App. (Don't let the name scare you off) Microsoft has created powerful information collection tool called Power App that will allow complete customization of the experience your end users see.
Unfortunately, with MS's shift to their new "modern" experience, there are some temporary gaps in service offerings. Where Infopath would have fit this bill nicely, Forms is often too limited and PowerApps too complicated.
If you are in a time crunch and cannot wait for Forms improvements, I recommend taking a look at Zoho Forms. It offers exactly what you are looking for and more and is very simple. I really hope that Forms adopts nearly all of these features. Good Luck

Is the drop down going to be available soon? I have a form going out to 72 schools and the drop down would be so much easier for them!

I would like to have this option.
If User = John, the form shows different set of dropdown menu, if user = Matt, shows different set of dropdown. The dropdown selections corresponds with the excel column and answers are saved in a different column like date, or any text.
Another scenario- If John access the form using his credentials it shows him a pre-defined set of dropdown selection. And different dropdown options for Matt. The user selects the date, enters any text, hits on submit. When the user clicks on submit, the form will look for the selected dropdown option in the excel file and saves the answer in the same row.
