  1. Have data validation capabilities. Such as phone number fields, date fields, etc...

    I would like to see data validation. Such as what you have in Excel or Infopath. If I want a user to enter a specific type of data I want the ability to make sure that they input it correctly.

  2. A on/off switch for the message 'Your response is anonymous'

    I think it would help if the creator of the Form can decide whether the 'Your response is anonymous' message is needed or not. Because sometimes, we will be sharing the survey to external but still we want them to fill in their name and this message up front is confusing them.

  3. Link to Active Directory

    Could we link to AD so that when we enter a name into a field it validates it from a list, that way this removes spelling errors and allows further integration with Flow triggers by enabling a look up of manager, divisions, etc.

  5. Add ability to set a redirect URL

    Could be really cool to redirect the user at the end of the survey/quiz to a custom URL. (for example a SharePoint page giving details on the next steps...)

  6. The ability to manage Forms across the tenant thru an Admin Center similar to SharePoint

    It would be wonderful to have a Forms admin center at the tenant level similar to SharePoint where an admin could go in a view all Forms created by users and to assign permissions at the tenant level to specific forms.

  7. Add undo and redo functions when building a form

    When building a form, it would be useful to have an "undo" and "redo" button like other Microsoft products. I accidentally deleted a question, and because there is no "confirm" dialog, and no "undo" button, it was gone forever. Adding an undo button would allow users to undo accidental changes to the form.

  8. Ability to remove or hide the 'submit another response' and 'create my own form' from the 'Your response was submitted' page

    I don't want users to have the option to create a new form or submit another response when finishing the form

  9. Add the graphs to the export functionality

    While the export functionality is solid, so far (with several of the other idea's about exporting great ideas), it would be really helpful if the bar graphs and pie charts and etc exported to Excel, Word, PPT, etc when the rest of the data was exported.

  10. SAVE/PRINT button before submitting

    Since once the form is submitted, respondents cannot view the form again, it would be very beneficial to provide a SAVE/PRINT button next to the SUBMIT button.

  11. add an archive option

    I sometimes need to keep forms for a year or more. However, I don't need to see them in my list of forms all the time. It would be nice to be able to archive forms instead of delete.

  15. Allow storage of data in geographically local data centers

    The FAQ for Forms says that the data is stored in the US or Europe. Do you plan to store data in the same data center as the Office 365 tenant in the future? We have to turn forms off for now.It would have been nice to have a global switch to turn it off rather than having to change every users license setting.

  16. allow owner to reorder answer options when creating a form.

    When I hover over an answer option, my only choice is to delete. I would like to be able to reorder the answer options if needed by dragging and dropping.

  19. Storage of Form Data

    Allow the form data to be stored in the Canadian data center. If that is not possible then allow an option for the forms to be transient and by using flows push the data to a service such as Dynamics 365 that is stored in the Canadian data center.
