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.

    MS Forms would benefit HUGELY bu being able t add sections of text (instructions etc.), and even more so if this was editable (font colour, type, size etc.) No brainer really!

  • Samuel Mueller commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Frustrating: If you begin with a section you have to hit next to begin the survey to get to the first section????

    We would like to have sections in Microsoft Forms so that depending on criteria user can select group of question they would like to submit. For example in a test if we have 3 sections and user would like to complete second section set of questions first then should be able to do that.
    Please let us know when are you planning to roll out this feature.

    Hello! any updates on the ability to add sections/pages to a survey?

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I've just read through the comments stemming back to 2017. Looks like Microsoft aren't going to bother implementing such a simple fix.

    I'm off to use Google Forms instead :)

    Along with those sections please allow advance field layouts so that questions can be set to a grid of some sort to allow for side by side questions and more advanced logical grouping of questions.

    I think this feature issue should be linked to https://microsoftforms.uservoice.com/forums/386451-welcome-to-microsoft-forms-suggestion-box/suggestions/37071541-branching-in-multiple-choice-questions as it would be nice to display sections based on multiple selections in a questions (e.g. in what areas do you have experience? Pick 3 out of 10 and only see these 3 according sections

    Would be great to just add text, like thank you for filling in the form or instructions, thanks,

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    it would also be nice if there were some formatting options for the instructional text (like bold, italic, a list formatting, if you want to introduce the user to the form and explain some steps, or similar)

    Any further update on this? These are some basics here hat I would really like to see in MS Forms - we are integrating this across our organisation to use Teams, but I am struggling to get everything into the form that I need and therefore it's lacking functionality.

    Hoping that this is in the works to be released soon. Would like to see new features that allow us to include headings/ group questions types together. We currently use different products as well, and some of the others are more robust.

    Looking for an update on this one, please.

    This is one of many great features that would allow my organization to adopt MS Forms completely. Right now, we are still using a combination of solutions to account for the lack of functionality in Forms (ie: add attachments, better layout options, etc).

    Hey Microsoft,

    Is there an update or estimate for this feature? Seems simple enough to implement and this has been open for quite a while..

  • Rey Chew commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Hello Microsoft!
    What is the update on this one? I think 4 months is quite enough to gather samples and justifications from people in this chat thread. It would be great to have this feature as it is basic in all of the online forms that I have used and came across so far.

    bis wann wird denn das umgesetzt? Könnte es aktuell ganz dringend brauchen - Danke

  • Robert Anderson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I created a workaround using branching (Do you want to see instructions? Y/N) and then put the instructions in the explanation box for a long answer question, with a "Use the space below to let us know if something is unclear", but it's not ideal. Having the ability to add a dedicated text box for instructions, definitions, etc. would be far better.

    Although for some, creating themes for various forms is helpful, I work for a company, and the theme color is basically the logo of the title as far as I know. Since we are branded, I use the same color on every from as part of the identification of the form as an internal survey.
