  1. 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…

  2. 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 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Randomly chose a number of questions for a quiz from a pool of questions

    I would like to create a pool of questions and Microsoft Forms should randomly chose a number of questions from this pool for a quiz.
    So if I need a quick test for my students I could just tell Microsoft Forms to take 10 questions from a certain pool randomly.

  8. Enable uploading and downloading a form

    It would be great to be able to upload a form stored as an Excel file, as well as download a form as an Excel or Word file.

  10. More options for video upload - e.g. Stream, OneDrive

    It would be nice if videos could be uploaded from the computer, OneDrive or Stream, not just from YouTube.

  12. Add a timer

    I know you can set for how long a form is available but having a timer on the test or even a timer per questions can make forms better.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  16. Integrate Forms with SharePoint.

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

  17. Add Check Box

    Add an option for a simple check box instead of just radio button selections. This would be more useful when creating a true form type entry and not a quiz or survey where you may have multiple choice.

  18. confirmation

    It would be a good idea if people that filled in the form would get an automated confirmation/notification on what they filled in.

  20. Convert a form into a quiz
