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.

        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..

        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.

        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.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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

      • Ahmad Khalil commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

      • Debra Currie commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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
