  2. An option to limit the number of responses

    I need to do registrations for events that have only limited number of seats. For that It would be great if I could do a survey that closes after certain amount of responses.

  3. Ability to add a hyperlink to a quiz / form as you can in Word, Excel, etc.

    Writing information in Description (under the title of the form) I wanted to add a URL to an information crib sheet.

    Also, when I am adding 'comments' to appear under answers selected when candidates are reviewing their quiz answers I wanted to add a link. The best I can do is use Bitly to shorten a URL. Can you please add the option to insert a hyperlink as you can in Word, Excel, etc.?

  4. Allow respondents to upload photo, audio or video in their response submission

    This would allow respondents to easily insert a photo, video clip, or audio clip in their response

    Perhaps would allow them to use their camera/mic on phone

  8. 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…

  10. Allow offline Forms

    I suggest that you make an app for a provider to allow people to fill out the Forms locally and online. So, if you are on the go people can still fill it out even without internet and then when you are connected again it syncs the data between online and offline completions of the survey. This would make Microsoft Forms a lot more practical as you would be able to complete it everywhere. The idea of an app would only be for the creator of the Form and anyone otherwise would still go through the Browser

  11. increase the limit to add questions in a form.

    I need to enter 177 questions, but was cut off at 95. The option to add another question was greyed out. Is the question limit a local setting set by the organization, or in MS Forms itself? If in Forms, then the suggestion would be to address it, but if a local setting, then I can investigate that.

  13. Have the ability to add audio to questions in order to create music questions.

    Having the ability to add audio will make Forms an excellent tool for creating music test and practise papers.

  14. Include a Word/Character Count restriction in the Long Answer text area

    Either through a character count or a word count, include a restriction in the Long Answer Question answer to set a minimum or maximum word count that would return an error message if the form submission went over/under the restriction number. This is included in another form software that you are competing against. Overall, I like this software.

  18. allow partial credit for answers on MS quiz

    Let's say it's a multiple answer question, and there are only two correct answers. But the respondent checks three answers (two of their choices are the correct answers). They should receive partial credit for this, since they did in fact get the answers correct. So if the question was worth 2 points, but they marked three choices, MS forms scores it as a 0/2. Why?

  20. add digital signature

    I ask that you please add the digital signature to the application-forms, as one of the options to add a literal return, list selection, etc. The plug-in is necessary for ongoing administrative forms of schools which parents must sign. I know that digital signature application technology is known to Microsoft. Would change to be implemented in the coming days to the schools who have organizational 365 system can promote its use.
