  1. Take Forms to the next level

    This would be invaluable with a few additions:

    1) Checkboxes (not just radio)
    2) email alerts when completed to Form owner(s)
    3) Ability to attach files (20-50mb)
    4) Ability to turn completed forms into tasks or "to do lists"
    5) "if this... then" when creating the questions would be great. So some questions might "unlock" other questions.(slightly different than branching).
    6) ability to link dates to a shared calendar (making due dates and reminders possible

  2. Allow pre-populated data via URL parameter

    It would be helpful to be able to add a GET value to the share link to provide default answers to questions. E.g., ?q1=default&q2=default2

  4. allow form responses to be sent to an email or multiple emails. we are trying to use microsoft form instead of google docs to no avail

    My school wants to use microsoft form instead of google docs since our district is pushing the use of microsoft office products however the microsoft form does not allow you to send form responses to an email or to multiple emails. We want to be able to enter teacher feedback into the form and email the responses to the teacher, assistant principal and principal. Currently google docs allows us to email the form responses and chart our entries. Microsoft form using flow will only allow you to get a notification that a response has been entered which does us no…

  5. Allow Ability to Auto-Fill/Pre-Fill answers

    Google Forms has an ability to Pre-Fill answers. You can even edit the Pre-Fill link to even change which Strings you would like to import.

    This is done in Google Forms by assigning each Question a unique ID # and you can easily manipulate what you want the Answer to say by changing the ID #'s Pre-fill data.

    I feel like Microsoft Forms should be able to implement something similar. I know a lot of businesses would like to import data quickly as well.

  6. Allow the full form to be sent via email. 50%+ higher response rates when the survey is in the email body, saving respondents a click.

    Include the survey/form within the body of an email message in addition to the link to the survey. Response rates are higher when participants can respond from within the body of an email message.

  7. Integrate Forms with SharePoint.

    The ease of use Forms provide would make building request apps, approval apps, and calendar apps much easier.

  8. allow printing of forms without responses.

    It would be really helpful if we could print the forms we've created without responses for when a paper copy is needed.

  10. Share the form with specific people

    Share the form with specific people.

    Especially in corporate setting there is usually a need to send the survey/quiz to specific people instead of everyone in organization. There should be a way to do that.

  12. Add the option to copy a question form one form to another

    This feature would allow teachers to share questions with other teachers and to create question banks

  13. Ability to turn share a survey outside organization without form being marked Anonymous

    We are using the form as a guest survey that requires a name and contact information be provided. We offer a prize incentive for anyone completing the survey and need a way to contact the winners.
    People are confused by the form having a subheading that says "Your response is anonymous" but the first question requires them to identify themselves.
    It would be great to be able to turn that marking off or on depending on the intended use of the form.

  14. Copy from "My Forms" to "Group Forms"

    I've designed a form under "My Forms" to make tests, now I need the final version shared with my company and it would be good to copy same form to "Group Forms" or transfer ownership to group.

  15. Pass default values to form through URL query string

    We would get much more mileage out of the forms feature if we could pass default values in the form URL that are set when the form opens.

    For example we are asking some 100 users to fill out the same form, but some values we want to preset for some groups of users.

  18. poll with live results

    It would be nice, to make a poll. When posted, the responder could see the live results of the poll (for example on a website or on his Phone...).
