I suggest you ...

Have "Add comments" on Forms

After each Question, I would love to have a " Add Comment" section so that the answerer can put a comment/explanation for his/her answer.

        While this is partially achievable at the moment by interleaving text boxes with questions, it does mean that each box automatically gets its own question 'number' which can't be removed.

        It will be very useful.
        Same as the description option that can be activated or not.

        I agree as well. I want to create an audit form, and having an area for auditors to enter additional comments is extremely valuable.

        I absolutley agree - this is necessary - NOT as an additional question but as an addition to the question.

        I agree with others here that Forms would be much more usefuly if they offered an Add Comment section after specific questions.

        My org needs this functionality as well. We need to know why people are responding the way they are, but as it is right now, there is no way to gather additional feedback other that adding an additional question.

        Absolutely!! This needs to be added. I could not believe this isn't a standard option to begin with??

        This could be resolved if they had conditional questions. You could add a new text area that would be subject to their answer on the previous question.
