  1. Numeric responses are not numeric in excel

    If you want numeric answer, e.g. age, then in excel produced it is not a number.

    Numbers should be translated to Numeric fields in excel.

  2. When adding a 'number' restriction, have the data exported as 'number' instead of 'text'

    Data from forms exporting to Excel converts numbers into text

  3. Ability to move the Form/spreadsheet within Sharepoint to another location, and the link be dynamic - currently it breaks the relationship.

    Ability to move the Form/spreadsheet within Sharepoint to another location/folder, and the link be dynamic - currently it breaks the relationship.
    You can do this no problem with Google forms.

  5. Ability to import a list with answers for multi choice questions.

    to avoid issues with format and invalid answers often we need validation list as part of a multi choice question. Sometimes the validation list can be long and it change over time so updating it manually it is very time consuming. It would be great if you could import a list from an excel file.

    Microsoft Forms のアンケート フォームについて。
    現在回答結果は Excel へエクスポート可能だが、アンケート自体をエクスポートする機能の提供がないため、アンケート自体もエクスポートできるよう、機能の拡張を要望します。

    I would like to see the feature to export a form itself in Microsoft Forms. It can be exported only answer, but it would be great if we are able to export a form as well.

  7. Able to create a Quiz, not just a Form from Excel

    Many users asking for the possibility to create a Quiz just like the way you can create a Form, from Excel. Today you need to start a new Quiz from the Forms application itself meaning you will be the owner of the Quiz, which is unfortunate if it it's going to be used or by others and even more unfortunate if you decide to leave the company. Secondly, being able to see answers from the Quiz in realtime shared by the ones being member of the Sharepoint/Team where you created the Excel would be great.

  9. Allow to download data from mutliple forms/quizzes at once

    Would be nice to be able to download data from multiple forms at once. Would also be nice to be able to group forms together into groups for managing a large number of forms.

  11. Fix Excel online integration

    I created a Form from an online Excel document in my OneDrive. I needed to create another Form that was very similar, so from Forms, I clicked to copy my first Form. The new duplicate Form created another Excel Online document to store responses, but the Excel document did not appear in the same folder as the first Form's Excel document. Instead it appeared in my top-level OneDrive folder. As soon as I tried to move the Excel Online document to the right folder, the link broke and the Form permanently stopped recording results.

    1) When you copy a Form…

  15. Responses not recorded for unmodified ranking questions

    When a Forms question is set up as a 'Rating' type, and if a responder leaves the ratings as is and doesn't upvote or downvote any items on the list (i.e. keeps the default ratings) then submits the Form, the default ranking is not exported to Excel for that responder.

    It looks like Forms is treating this question as a blank response, but it is a valid use case for a responder to just accept the default ranking and submit the Form. Forms should still record this as a valid response and allow this to be exported to Excel

  16. Me gustaría que Microsoft Forms tuviera las siguientes opciones:


    1. Cuando se elimine un Formulario o Cuestionario, nos de una opción de poder recuperarlo.

    2. Que Forms cuente con un xls predeterminado para poder cargar las preguntas automáticamente y no estar tipeando uno por uno.

    3. Al crear un formulario se pueda cambiar automáticamente por un Cuestionario (viceversa)

  19. Forms function to change the responder’s “email” to the primary mail address instead of UPN when opening responses in Excel

    *English follows Japanese

    Microsoft Formsにて、応答内容を "Excel で開く" で開いた際に、応答者の "メール" の項目を UPN ではなく プライマリ メール アドレスに変更する機能の実装を希望
    Forms function to change the responder’s “email” to the primary mail address instead of UPN when opening responses in Excel


    ■Description(内容):
    応答内容を "Excel で開く" にて開いた際に、"メール" の項目を非表示にする機能を希望いたします。
    背景としては、UPN にユーザー固有の番号が含まれており、この番号を個人情報と捉え、回答として希望しない場合があるためです。

    Please add a way to hide the “Email” item when you open a response using “Open in Excel”.
    As background, user specific numbers are contained within the UPN, and these numbers may be classed as personally identifiable information which you do not want to be included in responses.

  20. Form Number Responses being stored as text rather than numbers. (Huge Issue)

    Right now, and I think that it was potentially a recent update, the numbers collected by a form are stored in Excel as text. For example, instead of
    " 1234 " it's " '1234 ". This is a huge issue. It basically makes automatic data analysis impossible.

    Please advise when this can be changed.
