I suggest you ...

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.

    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 viewing in details form. The thumbnail is huge and sometimes the full title can't be seen. It is hard to differentiate between a form with same title for one class and another.

        I agree with everyone here, we host classes in a corporate setting. There aren't enough colors for each class as we have over 100 different courses. Even if 100 colors were available it is not intuitive like a folder. Folders are a must.

        Absolutely essential to have folders - our themes are governed by corporate branding and many forms have the same name but when working in administration and assisting our academic areas to create forms many are related to different teaching areas - folders are essential

        Search boxes and themes are all well and good but we still really need folders.
        The forms landing page is so cluttered, especially as mine are titled with a code with only 1 digit changing for each form.
        It seems ridiculous that a request with so many votes and that seems so simple and standard is not getting sorted!
        Folders ASAP - please!

        Folders are necessary to unclutter, and make it functional for an educator to sort them by classes

        I'll never get users who use forms a lot to switch from Google until you implement folders. They get started and then come back to me a day or two later asking how to create folders. So I tell them they can't. And back to Google they go.
        Searching this request it's been "on the backlog" for at least two years...

        this is actually true for most O365 products and what is given is a search box and alphabetical listing

        maybe it will be ok for some but if you have lots of items in the list, it will not be structured

        If you're using company/school branding then you can't use a different colour theme for different topics. It needs folders!

      • Jose R Garcia commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        No, we need folder! are some sort of structure. Teachers at our district are heavily using forms and color coding is not ideal.

        I agree about adding folders. As a teacher, this view is too cluttered. Folders cleans things up. Google offers this feature which makes it hard to stick with Microsoft. I'll have to keep making Google Forms until this is resolved.

        From my point of view it would be very helpful, if forms would use and nested into SharePoint Document libraries. With this you would have instantly a lot of benefits
        - folder structure
        - additional attributes for describing and selecting forms
        - access management
        - notification of new forms
        - versioning
        - approval and release functions
        - ...

        Dear Microsoft, please let me know when you've sorted this out. I'm heading back to Google before this does my head in.

        In an education environment, different quizzes are created for different classes. In my opinion arranging the forms (quizzes) in folders seem like the only logical solution.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        A search option isn't as helpful as folder organization would be. Teachers with multiple classes over multiple years.....the Forms add up - making the Forms page very very messy.
