  2. Comment box in forms

    Can we add comment box at the end of every questions in Forms. I have given option of "others" to my respondents but that is hurting my reporting purpose in excel. Since I have allowed them for multiple answering for example they have to either answer yes or no (mandatory) and for comments they can select others. but while downloading the file in excel. I have to do a lot of work to separate the responses since comments has been treated as a choice.

  3. Add "if" or "When" follow questions

    e.g. "IF" the Rating is lower than 5 Points -> fill out the Text Box with comments.
    e.g. "When" Answer is xxx, -> fill out the Text Box with comments.

  11. Add the availability of a comments box to 'choice' questions in Ms Forms

    Please add the ability to add a comments box to multiple-choice questions. Currently other is available but this doesn't offer any opportunity for expanding on answers to questions. For example, I am creating a survey on the types of support offered to parents during the lockdown and have a list of options but below it, I would also like to add a free form comments box without having to create a new question.

  13. Comment box

    I would like to be able to have a field where a respondent could enter their comments for a question. Kind of like branching but where it is not a separate question, it's included in the response for "choice" or drop down. The respondent would answer yes, and then include their comments on the question itself.

  16. Templates

    Instead of creating a new form for every class scheduled, create a number of template forms that can be opened, modified, personalized if necessary before sharing.

    We make email templates for repeated emails, we make word templates for repeated items, why not forms?

    Dear Forms user,

    Greatly appreciated for sharing the feedbacks in the survey and comments. Given we’ve heard many inspiring suggestions, this survey is closed.

    Next step, we are driving the effort to onboard template to Forms users soon.

  17. Comment box when rating is below 5

    My Rating scale is fixed from 1 to 5~ when my customer rates me below 5, I need comment box to be displayed and also he should be able to select criteria given by me.

  19. Editable 'Other' field after multiple choice

    It would be great to be able to edit the 'other' option and turn it into a comment box following a multiple choice question. This will allow a respondent to qualify their answer and provide more information.

    For example,

    Q - Did you find x resource useful?
    A - yes

    - no
    
    - please tell us more [comment box]

  20. There should be a comment box option available within Radio buttons

    I want to make a checklist where user will select the given option(choice) with comment box where he will tell us that why they choice the selected option

    but there is no option available for comment box with radio option & for that i have to add another section of text with choice section which make no sense

    & Also there is a option available for merging the two different options like choice & text box can be merged
