Branding improvement - Custom theme, logo, background image, header, CSS

Would like to be able to customize colors, background images, fonts, of all sections of forms. Would really like to be able to change the header to include a full width image option, and to be able to remove text and their spaces in areas that do not require them.

If we could design and upload our own complete themes that would be wondrous, but any type of customizing to help with the overall design would be great.

    I'd love to see a custom CSS or code snippet option like SharePoint uses. This would allow custom CSS on individual forms when needed.

    Example use case:
    We created an anonymous survey by un-checking the "record names" checkbox, which is great. However, the footer of the form still reads "The data you submit will be sent to the form owner." which leads some users to think their names are being actually being recorded. We would love an option to hide this footer.

    I need to change the background colour of the survey (i.e. the white background not the image that surrounds it). My company's brand is black background and white text. I am using it with the SharePoint modern web part.
    Changing the font would also be very useful.

    Basic CSS is required at least.

    Normal/Compact layout toggle would be good

    As it stands, the form isn't really suitable for embedding into sites and retaining the look of the site.

    Agree with David about the padding. If it's too much to allow for completely customizable CSS, then at least I would like to see a "Normal/Compact" toggle. I can only see three questions in my embedding, where at least five could have been visible.

    Really need the ability to have some ability to tweak the css. For me the padding around the questions is massive and I should be able to override this to make my form more compact when I embed it on a SP Page.

    Need to be able to change fonts, add logo etc. Generic look and feel is far to, well, generic.

    Thanks for recent product improvement.

    Having the ability to use CSS is fundamental to our needs as a multi-service state government agency where branding changes across multiple agencies is an ongoing requirement.

    The new updates (19 Oct 2018) is a step in the right direction but in order for Forms to compete with the likes of Survey Monkey, Question Pro, JotForms, etc, there needs to be a lot more.

    The ability to modify the look and feel precisely is very important to my client's Corporate Identity. They are leaning towards QuestionPro in this respect as it allows a CSS to be embedded to change it to the way it looks precisely to they need . The forms feature set (question types, rules, etc) in QP is also very complete.

    This is a must have in my opinion. I would love to create a custom style sheet.

    The benefits of having Microsoft forms that integrate well with flow are greatly outweighed by competition third party forms because you can design them to match company branding.

    From a marketing / brand standards point of view we need the colours on the background to be correct please!

  • Anne Millar commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    We have a lovely branded (Yellow) Christmas themed image to use as a forms theme. But the head Microsoft Forms has supplied becomes a dirty brown! Looks really awful - can we change it please

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Different colors allows for easier differentiation of forms. Especially when they can't be placed in folders.

  • Donia Strand commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Yes, please! It sure doesn't look good that when you choose to upload a theme that the header of the Form stays green.
