  1. Provide a quicker way to add multiple options in an "option" style question

    Many times, the list of options for a question of type "option" comes from some external source. Occasionally there are relatively many options (e.g.: a list of class members)
    At this time, the only way to add them, is to repeatedly click "add option" and enter the text.
    It should not be hard to create a way to paste a delimited text that adds all "items" as options to the question (and from there on, it's probably not hard to create even better options).

    Note: even better would be if you could point Forms to an existing file (e.g. some…

    • Ability to turn share a survey outside organization without form being marked Anonymous

      We are using the form as a guest survey that requires a name and contact information be provided. We offer a prize incentive for anyone completing the survey and need a way to contact the winners.
      People are confused by the form having a subheading that says "Your response is anonymous" but the first question requires them to identify themselves.
      It would be great to be able to turn that marking off or on depending on the intended use of the form.

              • 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.

                  I would like a functionality to allow rate various choices. For example, we run training with different sessions/instructors. I would like the survey takers to rate each class by choosing a scale such as "Satisfied", "Very Satisfied", "Dissatisfied" etc.

                  • Specify a certain number of choice of one answer

                    Limit number of choices in multiple choice
                    In Microsoft Forms currently it is possible to have multiple choice questions were we can set only one choice or many choices. I would like to see an option were we can have specified number of choices allowed, say 2, 3 or 4 out of the available options. Instead of One or all.

                      • allow printing of forms without responses.

                        It would be really helpful if we could print the forms we've created without responses for when a paper copy is needed.

                        • 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.

                            • 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.?

                                Please, allow Forms to automatically create a Excel file into onedrive with all the answers, like google drive does.
                                It's not convenient at all downloading the file each time to see the spreadsheet.

                                        Please can we have a way of printing blank forms/before any responses are made so we can keep hard copies for non-computer users and also to share in meetings!

                                        • SAVE/PRINT button before submitting

                                          Since once the form is submitted, respondents cannot view the form again, it would be very beneficial to provide a SAVE/PRINT button next to the SUBMIT button.
