Instead of creating a new form for every class scheduled, create a number of template forms that can be opened, modified, personalized if necessary before sharing.
We make email templates for repeated emails, we make word templates for repeated items, why not forms?
Dear Forms user,
Greatly appreciated for sharing the feedbacks in the survey and comments. Given we’ve heard many inspiring suggestions, this survey is closed.
Next step, we are driving the effort to onboard template to Forms users soon.
need ability to both import and export questions
Patrick Weber commented
can you please implement that users have more possibilities with custom themes? currently it is not possible to use a white header background, because otherwise all symbols and the submit button will be white. The respondent cannot submit the survey because he doesn't see the button.
Companies that want to use Forms can't fulfill their copoorate design guidelines, so they switch to other providers like SurveyMonkey, Zoho Survey etc..

I have the same problem. When I copy a (almost too large?) survey, I'm loosing parts of the questions (plus the background picture, but that's a small issue compared to loosing parts of the questions).
I want to duplicate the same survey I created previously in forms for a different group of people, and keep the results separate. I had to recreate from scratch which is a waste of time. Supposedly there is a link to the survey as a template, but it doesn't work.
Currently all of the form theme templates (those with high res images/ the ones with people) all only have white people in the pictures. I would be great to have some templates with similar images that had some diversity. As is, I can't use those templates and can only use the landscapes or animated form templates or spend the time creating my own
I need forms that need to same basic structure but ever so slightly different content and I can't see anywhere you can copy an entire blank form - in the way that you can duplicate questions
I noticed when i do a form quiz, I was greeted with my name in "Hi Christopher, when you submit this form, the owner...." How do I customize that for the thank you message? On a note, is it possible to create like a certificate with user name and quiz title after a quiz?
Form templates would be helpful for QA surveys where every month we send out tests to check equipment and ask local staff to return the results on a form. Being able to use the same basic form each month makes training easier and all we have to do is set up the special label data for each sample. It means we can then collect data automatically and process the analysis of the data automatically without duplicate data entry.
We would like the same thing in order to create a copy for each of our Client's project surveys.

Being able to save a custom theme would be very helpful.

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.
Need more information on how to make a GOOD theme using company logos, to make the internal forms official
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.
Please create common pre-made forms like Multiple Intelligence surveys, etc.
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.
I was just planning to enter this as a suggestion, but Jeremy already did.
Please, please, fix this, this is so useful when you use forms with people that you don't want to give access to the forms (like working in a group), but you want them to contribute. Right now, I am the one typing in al the submitted questions. I would love to upload them instead!
There appears to be an error in the the Email Template function, it does not display template names in the Power Flow Cardn and does not work
I'd like to create 3 custom themes. How do I do this?
When creating a new Flow under the Send Form option, I would like to see and edit the just created and active workflows. This now is only doable in the Microsoft Flow app. More template options would be a nice to have also, for example template Flows that trigger when a new reaction has been sent. So also to have Flows that start by reaction and not only Flows that start by being sent.
i already do paper surveys and i use an excel database to import answers, store them and i use this database for an online application. my problem is that some written answers are translates in numbers, how can i do this with forms? i don't want to create a lot of masks, is it possible to do this automatically?
