  1. Increase the 200 form limit

    Please allow for more than a maximum of 200 forms.

    I've recently reached this limit after using the forms to check for understanding of concepts. (5 class/day, 5 days/week = 25 potential forms / week = 200 forms in 8 weeks).

    There seems to be no way to save them (export/import) so you have to lose some forms already created to give room for new ones.

  2. Save Windows phone & inject hope for continue supporting Windows 10 on Phones for a special Target Market

    Dear Microsoft team,
    As we have been already announced that the support of windows phone will be ended till end of 2019 we need to declare our worries, feelings & Ideas regarding this decision.

    We know that Microsoft has lost the market for windows phone but instead of leaving us & this platform alone it can target a special market/people all around the world & get some privileges to those who are insisting to have it in their hand considering all the limitations & also help & support to remove the limitations as far as possible.

    There are lot's of…

  3. Copy from "My Forms" to "Group Forms"

    I've designed a form under "My Forms" to make tests, now I need the final version shared with my company and it would be good to copy same form to "Group Forms" or transfer ownership to group.

  4. Pass default values to form through URL query string

    We would get much more mileage out of the forms feature if we could pass default values in the form URL that are set when the form opens.

    For example we are asking some 100 users to fill out the same form, but some values we want to preset for some groups of users.

  5. 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.

  6. Restrictions

    It would be good if there were other restriction options other than just on 'numbers'. For example, I often want to restrict the number of words/characters for a response to avoid overly lengthy responses.

  8. Set Time Limits on Quizzes

    Allow the owner to put a time limit of the quiz. This time limit will count down for the person completing the quiz, and will automatically 'Submit' at the end of the time limit.

  9. have matching as a question option for quizzes.

    I would like to have a question type where students taking the quiz can match items from one column with items in another column.

  10. 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…

  12. remove the "create your own form" link once a response has been submitted

    Once a response has been submitted, an option to "create your own form" is provided. Suggestion would be to remove this and only accept responses from this link vs. creating a new survey.

  13. allow for any number of points per question or points per choice for each question.

    I'm making a rubric that needs scores per question of 0-4. There are currently only options for questions that are either 5 or 10 points. Also, only points 1-5 are options for answers. There should be any number of points you choose per question/answer choice.

  14. 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.

  15. User Lookup Text Field

    It would be great if a field (question) existed that would allow lookup of a User in the organization.
    Example: using forms to create a time off entry, and requiring their supervisor name would perform a lookup based on the text entered; allowing a user to click on the name and thus capture their email address automatically.

  17. all users to import questions from other test banks.

    I have tests created in Word, ExamView, Blackboard, and it would be great if I could import from some other format so that I don't have to rewrite my questions. I am just now looking into adopting forms and Classroom for my class, and this would make the decision to switch to Microsoft much easier. Thanks!

  20. Allow multiple Text Box Answers to the same Question

    I am currently using Microsoft Forms to design not Quizzes, but Exams Assessments for client solution. However, it would be great if questions such as:

    List 2 duties that should done as an employee?
    a) TextBox
    b) TextBox

    or

    What does SOS stand for?
    S: TextBox
    O: TextBox
    S: TextBox
