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.

        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.

        Please add a customizable section that will allow for text or template such as a certificate of completion. Thank you very much.

        Needs the ability to add sections and custom textboxes. Very basic as it stands, and not very useful.

        This would be great, I regulary want to add a text box as an option with Mutichoice eg if answered NO please comment (at the moment I have to create a separate question for the text option)

        It would also be extremely helpful to be able to add an image with a header.

        It's odd that it is called "Forms" but these basic form capabilities aren't there...

        Extremely important for our organization. Our new favorite buzzword is 'gamification' and in its current state, Forms is not capable of creating the type of fun forms that we use during training seminars, etc. I have completed the survey and provided a link to a very interesting google form we created that functions as a training exercise. This needs to be implemented if we have any hope of getting folks to migrate to Forms in the next year.

        @Zhongzhong, maybe Kathyl (who is the admin/moderator for the suggestion to "add pictures and documents") is just sitting beside you. Do me a favor and tell her that the comment thread for that suggestion had reached to thousands. It could be that she has been moved to another assignment, moved to another company etc. Microsoft should look into it as it is the number one most suggested feature to be added. Tell your boss to look into it, please. And whoever is slacking in your team needs to be called for an employee engagement.

        Finally! Someone at least listed or checked their mailbox.
        I replied to the survey with links of Forms and Assessments I did in Google Forms

        The title explains everything, the form is not really helping without instructions or creating sections, we should be able to add instructions and add section titles.

        Just to provide another use case, this is also important for Knowledge capture to give guidance on what type of info eg if you are trying to capture Case Studies. Forms are so much more than surveys

        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!

      • JeffL commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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 !

      • Robinson commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

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