  1. Enable external sharing using email adresses and record who answered

    Please enable external sharing with recorded names, like a survey where if you shared to a group of email adresses they would each get unique links so you can know who replied what.

    This so us teachers can collect information from parents that do not have Office 365 accounts.

  2. "I'm not a robot" Button for reCAPTCHA

    I want to avoid submitting forms by robot.
    When sharing the forms with anonymous who an access form's url,
    I need the setting to avoid it.
    The button " I'm not a robot" is easy and no-cost way to do it.

  3. enable option to record names and emails of survey participants outside my organization

    I'm using this survey to assess Skills outside my organization and to identify gaps based on the results. You don't provide the option to record names and emails for participants outside my organization. If a user takes the survey twice, my results are skewed and I can't delete the duplicate response.

  5. move pre-existing forms into forms for excel

    I've recently found out about forms for excel, and as i want to create a form that my group will all be able to access and see the reporting information all in one place this is perfect.

    But I've already created the forms, and just want to add them onto the excel for forms but it won't allow me.

    Is there a way possible which will allow me to move these pre-existing forms onto forms for excel, so that my collegues can see all the forms and all the information from then in one place.

    Thanks

  7. Provide a user unique "view only" link to the results

    My teachers want to be able to provide a link to the results of a student assessment that will remain unique to the student. Assuming they must login (with their O365 credentials) to see the results, it should know who they are and show them only their results. And not be able to edit them either. Thanks

  8. enable sharing of form, responses and live document through edit / view only option

    I would like to be able to share a form and live results page, including live online excel doc with colleagues, but currently can only send a URL link in this option. I would like to invite someone such as how you can in word etc, to be able to edit or view the form, not just be given a link that gets forwarded on to others, and the responses.

    I would like to be able to let that person edit the results page also, i.e, completing added columns in the results page such as' job completed" etc, and then…

  11. Add support for printable (paper) forms

    I do not see how I can print a form!?

    I want to be able to print a form in Forms and hand it to a client for them to complete on paper. Then I want to manually submit their responses later on.

  12. Forms email notification

    In a group form, the email notification does not work! In a group form, it would be helpful if the sender of the form could choose who in the group got the email notification. Please add a field to the email notification to indicate which email to send the notification to.

  13. Allow "responder name" for forms used with those outside your Office 365 organization

    I am using the forms for clients of my practice. Whenever they fill out forms, it sends a response as "Anonymous". If we are using these forms for data collection from people outside of our Office 365 organization, we need to know who it is from.

  14. Support permalinks (permanent link URL) for specific responses

    Allowing copying of a URL to a specific response would make it easier to share which response you're looking at with another person.

    A second use case would be to be able to put a reference to a response into a document so that the source can be checked (by anyone with the correct access).

  16. Need to grant read only access to the survey results without ability to modify the form

    Need to grant read only access to the survey results without the ability to modify the form or at the very least setup versioning on the form so that when some yahoo decides to delete the questions I can restore the form to its original glory.

  17. Allow authenticated responses for people outside my organization so I can track external user responses. Require hotmail or outlook acct

    Allow external responses for people outside my organization one response per person but require Name/email address so I can track external user responses then have the link expire when complete. We have external contractors that need to complete a quiz but we need to know who completed and when.

  18. allow survey creator to suppress resubmit link at end of survey

    When an anonymous user who received the survey as a link has finished the survey they are given a link to Retake the same survey again.

    I can't see any way for the survey creator to disable this. Could this be added as a feature?
