More Field Types

More types of fields with richer options must be available.
If Forms is meant to compete with market leaders in this sector, it cannot offer just 4 types of fields it currently offers. See attached screen shots of how many types of field other services are offering.

Also, you need richer options. For example: you cannot offer only one type of date formatting. We use dd/mm/yyyy in Europe. Americans use the mm/dd/yyyy. The form creator must be able to define the desired format.

In general, we need more types of fields and more advanced control options for each type of field.

        Would be great if "Export to Excel" did not format all responses as text. If the response entered was a number, it should appear/format in Excel as a number. Users have to convert text to columns to use data and often have to copy from table format to cell format to create formulas.

        I agree - I would like to see a few fields:
        - Email Address (or at least allow the standard field to have an email address style restriction (example@domain.com)
        - An input grid. Currently you have to have a separate line item for each box but would be nice to have a single question/item with several rows and an input box at the end of the row/question.
        - Date restrictions (i.e. >today, tomorrow, or a specific date)

        Alan, your example is incorrect. for most of the word that date is the 6th of July 2018.

        Agreed on the date formatting. This is very important indeed. For most of the world 6/7/2018 is 6th June 2018.
