Add ability to insert sections, titles 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.

        Create capability to do multiple page forms with their own header & description. If I want to get feedback or create a quiz with multiple sections, I want the ability to title and describe each section.

        Need to add the ability to have sections, where additional/dynamic questions appear depending on what you answer is for current question. Example: If somebody answers that hey don't like something, then they are presented with a text box to enter WHAT/WHY they don't like it... So we could add questions that hinge off of previous answers.

        Microsoft Forms Team! - This is the highest voted suggestion for forms and you have not responded, this would improve take up of forms in my business.

        completely agree. I have just been searching for how to do this and can't believe that this isn't already built into forms.

        Can we get functionality to split forms in sections such as in google forms or smartsheet forms EG when doing a quiz , Sections A, B etc to group similar question tyoes

        There are times when I want to ask multiple questions about a single passage. It would be convenient if I could just insert the passage into a text box and say, "read the following passage and answer questions 4-8."

        It would be nice if I could add a "Separation line" between a group of questions in a form like I can do in SharePoint Surveys.

        This is the main thing keeping me from making the switch from Google Forms to Microsoft Forms. Google allows you to insert a section of text or just an image in place of question. That allows you to do something like provide some additional instruction that will apply to 3 or 4 questions and then attach a high quality image that will apply to the next few questions. Google also allows you to divide the questions into distinct sections and make it so they have to complete or correctly answer one section before moving on to the next. My employer wants me to use Microsoft Forms, but I am really missing the versatility of Google Forms. It would be wonderful if you could add some of the features that Google Forms has.

        Dealbreaker atm for me. I have to keep using google forms I guess.

        Can we have our own customised page or section to show results of the survey

        This will be a HUGE LEAP of improvement. A big plus and kudos to Microsoft if they will do this as soon as possible.

        I'd like a type of non-question - just text - that I can add at the end of the survey so I can inform a user about next steps in the process.

        You need sections to group your questions in a form. As a minimum you need to be able to insert a header and short description. Ideally you should be able to answer sections in separate pages in order to have a proper flow.
