  1. Have the ability to put instructions before the question. For example Please rank the following from 1-5

    We have the ability o add scale to the questions. They can go from 1-5. Would be good to be able to add instructions Above the start of the group of questions. This helps to prevent the question of What do we do with these questions. (i know it should be self explanatory but I am still getting questions.)

  2. Choice Questions With Multiple Answers Electronically Answered

    There needs to be a way that you can set up a multiple choice question to give +1 point for each each correct answer given, and -1 point for each incorrect answer given.

    At the moment, Forms only allows for 'max' marks, or no marks to be given (so if a student get 2/3 correct, Forms gives that student 0 - as they are not ALL correct).

  7. Repeating table support in Forms

    It would be great the support for using a repeating table (InfoPath) as formfields.
    So the user can add more rows to a form

  8. Allow to make a text box appear below a selected checkbox

    There is a feature to allow people to select more than one item, so it transform the radio button into check boxes to allow multiple selections.

    But why not adding this feature : being able to add a TEXT box that would appear below any selected item and it would let the user explain WHY he chooses this option, or check box. Labeled whit something like : Explain why you choose this answer.

  9. Add a question from another form

    When adding a question, give an option to add a question from an existing form. This effectively means all questions ever used can be accessed, almost like a question bank. This would save tonnes of time.
    So you click Add Question, click Add Question from Form..., select the Form you want to get a question from, then the questions on that form are displayed with an add button next to them. You can add multiple questions from that form and hit finish when done. Something like that!

  11. Create a sliding scale and numerical scale. With options to design the exact length or number options on a horizontal scale.

    A horizontal or vertical scale that can be ranked to set numbers identified by the designer of the question. Or a sliding scale option where the individual can slide a cursor along a horizontal line to indicate their level of agreement along a scale that has an anchor on each end.

  13. multi part questions

    Multiple part questions

    Ability to create a question with different related answers in one question instead of multiple questions.

    EG.
    Training Required?

    Topic, Participiants, Date, Duration and Mandatory

    Have that as one question instead of 5 different questions

    Results can be treated as separate columns in excel e.g. Question 5.1 5.2, 5.3,5.4,5.5 but displayed as one question when completing the input on the form.
    .

  14. allow option to set number of responses per question.

    We use form to send training invitation to our users and every session is limited to certain number of users so if there's option to set max number of response per question, it would be great!!

  16. GPS location

    GPS Location & Coordinates - Integration with Bing Maps allowing the Forms author to add a location, or the respondent to add GPS coordinates and a map screenshot. For example, one question could be "Where are you?" and the answer will be GPS based and pin on a Bing Map. For the results summary, the Forms owner will see the location of all respondents. Or, on a quiz, the question could be to name the country shown on the map. For a respondent, they may want to include a GPS coordinate to further describe an answer.

  17. Comment box in forms

    Can we add comment box at the end of every questions in Forms. I have given option of "others" to my respondents but that is hurting my reporting purpose in excel. Since I have allowed them for multiple answering for example they have to either answer yes or no (mandatory) and for comments they can select others. but while downloading the file in excel. I have to do a lot of work to separate the responses since comments has been treated as a choice.

  19. String Validation

    Add the possibility to add basic validation upon input fields according to its type.
    For string would be nice to match lenght and at least the occurence of spaces or other special characters.
    For dates the match would be before/after some day.
    Boolean and currencies types are missing.
