Looking to polish your survey with some visuals? Adding a background image is a great way to capture interest and increase responses from the moment a user clicks on your survey link.

 

Today, we’re thrilled to announce a better, yet faster, way to add background images with Theme Ideas. Once you enter a title, you’ll see a flash icon on the “Theme” button, which indicates there are recommended background images for your form.

theme #1.PNG

 

 

The theme  of your form will also automatically update to best match the background image.theme #2.PNG

 

 

If none of the recommended themes suit your needs, you can click “Hide” in the top right corner to hide the recommended theme options, and click on "Show" to retrieve the recommended options.

Q&A

Q: Why didn’t my title didn’t trigger any recommendations?

A: Currently only a portion of the forms may see theme recommendation, and over time Forms will continue to work on improving this feature.

 

Q: There are some images I like. Can I save them for future use?

A: Not for now, but if you have a need for this, please submit your feedback to us.

This is a good feature that helps evolve the already pretty good theming options. I'm not sure why the Theme Ideas is solely tied to a keyword. That would be good to present in any scenario when the user clicks the theme button. I don't feel, for example, that the Customer Satisfaction Survey images are particularly specific to that scenario. They do however look like nice generic images that could be used by any form.

@Kevin Crossman  thank you for your feedback. It will be taken into consideration in the next round of iteration.

Done associating a theme. You are welcome to share:stareyes: some "orders", and suggestions about the form. Scan QR to analyze.@Lorena Huang Liu @Si Meng @Kevin Crossman @Role Admin

For other users looking to take advantage of the new themes here are some trigger words:

Order, Request, Quiz, Plan, School, Sale

 

Once you select the new theme you can go back and edit the form name and still keep the new theme.

I really like the way that Microsoft Forms is developing. Are there are any guidelines for image size which would give an optimal background? I imagine this is going to be a question which I get from designers.

Occasional Contributor

Really like Forms and where it is going. Hopefully someday we can use our custom organization themes. We have some really nice high res images that would fit as a Theme within Forms.

Occasional Visitor

A list of key words would be helpful.

Yes, it is a nice feature and would be great to see a list of available key words.
