  6. Customize the response page.

    The owner is able to customize the response page and how it looks. Be able to choose which graphs. Also better way to view the details. With the option to include the date and time the responses were filled out.

  7. A on/off switch for the message 'Your response is anonymous'

    I think it would help if the creator of the Form can decide whether the 'Your response is anonymous' message is needed or not. Because sometimes, we will be sharing the survey to external but still we want them to fill in their name and this message up front is confusing them.

  8. New field type: Person lookup

    Hi,
    It would be very useful to be able to have a lookup field for looking up persons in the organization. Similar to the Person field type in Sharepoint.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Add Captcha section at end of form

    If the form is open to the general public, then I guess it is vulnerable to spamming. It would be good to add a Capthcha section at the end, to weed out the bot-responses.

  12. Allow Form to be added as web part

    I am not sure if it possible currently or not. Is it possible to add Forms created as web part on SharePoint pages? If we can add the quiz created as web part on SharePoint pages, it would really be helpful.

    thinking about it  ·  ruoyingl responded

    Thanks for your suggestion!

    SharePoint page support embed content. Currently you can copy the embed code of a form (click “Share” button, select “Embed” in “send and collect responses” section ) and past the code to SharePoint. The form will show as a web part on Sharepoint page.
    We will continue thinking about improving the experience.

  13. It would be great to have an upload file / photo option.

    I have recently used Zoho forms which has an option to upload images or files.

  15. Allow multiple forms to be assigned to single workbook as separate sheets

    My scenario: I run multiple trainings each week. I create Forms from Excel to tie the data to OneDrive and Sharepoint (depending), which is great, but each form has to be in a separate workbook, even though it creates a new sheet for the form. It would be VERY helpful to generate multiple forms from a single workbook, each as its own sheet, so I could collect all forms for a particular class, topic or timeframe, as I see fit.

  16. API for Microsoft Forms

    My org is looking at creating a wraparound micro-surveying service, and since we're already in O365 the Forms platform looked promising. However, being able to access the basic functions of forms from a programmatic end is critical in us both being able to create surveys based on some provided user input and then automatically create a report on the back end once data has been collected. Most enterprise surveying platforms like surveymonkey have an API which allows for all of this, but Microsoft Forms does not. Seems like a missed opportunity.

  20. Share the form with specific people

    Share the form with specific people.

    Especially in corporate setting there is usually a need to send the survey/quiz to specific people instead of everyone in organization. There should be a way to do that.
