Add ability to insert sections and instructional text

Make it possible to add sections (Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3) before or between questions, with the ability to provide "sub-title" text. For example, a section providing instructions for the next few questions.

        I added comments by selecting Options and then deleting the buttons to leave only the text behind.

        I agree. I have surveys where I would love to separate the questions by common areas. It will improve the flow of the survey / quiz.

        This was the first request that people at my company had when I introduced this new product to them. A definite requirement!

        Most definitely! I tried this on Google and did notice more options, sections was one of them.

        Would be extremely useful and make more complex forms far nicer for the user to complete by allowing it to be more clearly structured.

        When you're giving a quiz, a section allows you to have an initial section where you just have name and date, for example, and then you can embed that section on a webpage without the rest of the quiz showing!

        it would be nice to have an option for comments e.g. at the end that would not affect the option that people use for their reply - e.g. in a satisfaction survey the option somebody picks is "not satisfied" then it could be nice to have the possibility to enter into a related comment field why. So far I have solved by adding another question with text option but it does not look very neat.

        Sections features like Goolgle Forms is a must have. Right now I am using other forms because this option is missing in MS Forms

        I would like to be able to Add a picture with comments, instead of every entry being a question. I use Forms as a teaching tool then add questions at the end.

        Please please please. You pretty much should do everything your competitor Google forms has determined form designers want.

        Or just a plain statement such as a privacy statement at the end of a survey at the moment I have to add this as a final question

      • TanyaTanya commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Or a heading to easily identify fields relating to the same topic - like 'Primary Contact Details', and 'Secondary Contact Details' - some forms require the same field name, but for different topics.
