Allow storage of data in geographically local data centers
The FAQ for Forms says that the data is stored in the US or Europe. Do you plan to store data in the same data center as the Office 365 tenant in the future? We have to turn forms off for now.It would have been nice to have a global switch to turn it off rather than having to change every users license setting.
For many government and private organisations in Australia, we are required to store data onshore. Forms should be stored in the same DC as other services in the tenant.
It would be ideal if MS Forms data was stored in the same data center as the O365 tenant.
With local compliance requirements, the data in MS Forms should be stored in the same location as as other O365 services.

Please store in same data center as the M365 tenant.
Really important for M365 services to have in-Canada GEO hosting. This is applicable to any organisation that needs in-country data storage to enable use for a broader array of purposes.

Our organization would like our Forms data to remain on Canadian soil. Our 365 servers are in Canada (Montreal), and all our 365 data, with the exception of Forms, is Canadian hosted. We had to use SurveyMonkey Enterprise to enable the collection of personal information (tax documents) in an online form. If Forms was industry compliant like the rest of our 365 suite, we could save thousands every year by using Forms instead of SurveyMonkey.
It would be great to have the data stored in Canada for Canadian tenants, this will allow us to address some the privacy and data location concerns.

This is an awesome idea! We have privacy concerns with data being stored in the US or Europe. Ideally, we require data storage to be in Australia.

It would be ideal if responses from Forms could be stored in SharePoint lists as they are using Infopath. We are very hesitant to use Forms when we cannot know where and how the data is stored.
