I suggest you ...

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.

        So far, HTML tags seem to be limited to emphasis, strong and underline. No hyperlinks? No headings? No (useful) styles? I'd rather have this than Power BI styled report pages.

        This could be such an amazing tool, but instead it's yet another frustrating example of half-baked software being foisted on people who pay a fully-baked price, all thinly disguised as 'open source'.

        Microsoft, please read the comments in this thread! Everyone's asking for the basics to be addressed. Yes there's some very clever stuff being released, but at the expense of the simple usability that would see this being adopted on a far grander scale by Enterprise customers who want solutions, not added frustrations.

        It seems silly that: 1) this wasn't included in the original product and more importantly 2) no update has been actioned to include this feature after 15 months!

        Its a real shame alot of Microsoft products seem to be missing really basic functionality like this. Its like MS are teasing us, the product looks great, you dig a little deeper and then realise that there is a deal breaker because of something silly like this.

        Please get some of these basics in place it would make your products so much easier to get user buy ins!

        Please we also need this function.
        We have migrated to Office 365 everything but we still use Google Form for that.... that's a pity !

        Come on, Microsoft. It's been over a year. Absolutely frustrating not to have basic abilities such as this.

        Please add this basic functionality. Best option would be an HTML text box but I would settle for plain text!

        Come on Microsoft we're all waiting for this, it can't be that hard to implement.. I would just be happy if we can insert rich text in between questions!

        This would be a great addition to MS Forms - we currently use Survey Monkey in our company but would gladly move over to MS Forms if this feature were added. We are in the middle of a company-wide roll-out to the full O365 suite and would be great to make use of all functionality within the suite.

        Our organisation is migrating away from google to microsoft office but the forms are not fit for purpose without this function. Google forms has this function vital for various projects. Without this function we also cannot branch responses and send to a different page.

        Our academic data collection project would gladly pay for a series of Microsoft licenses to ensure GDPR compliance, but this drawback prevents us from doing so.

        Yes, miss the possibility to insert sections to have a better lisibily on questions banks... (like Google form)

      • China Young commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        If the intention is for this to replace google forms for organizations that switch over from the Google platform, please make it with as many options and features as Google forms so the organizations to not start to regret their move.
