Hi, I created 18 questions yesterday for an Office training quiz on MS Forms (online 365) using both IE and Chrome; when opening the Quiz today to continue building the quiz, only 6 of the 18 questions, all with their answers, showed up. None of the other 12 questions saved (as they should auto-save, per MS); has anyone else had this issue?

I had the same issue - lots of advanced branching and 50+ questions and the whole lot has been lost. I genuinely cannot believe MS have launched this product as ready to go live. In its current state it's just not ready. I had previewed my content which worked perfectly so this leads you to believe it has all saved as expected.
My question choices have been completely muddled between questions and the vast majority have now disappeared altogether. Some choices now have reverted to 'Option 3' and the branching naturally all gone because the questions have gone. What a disappointing waste of time.

My wife has this problem quite often. She checks a complete form at home and everything looks fine, but when she starts the form at school some of the questions are missing (sometimes most). I suggested her your solution/workaround. I hope it will help. Thank you!
But of course this is only workaround, but the issue needs to be solved in the Forms app, by changing/updating the synchronization algorithm.

@Kathy Bartlett I've been having the issue for a short while. It used to work fine when I did forms last year for work, but since the summer I've had nightmares with the autosave. I've even clicked on preview seen the completed forms and then when I've gone back to it once a colleague has reviewed, discovered that 50-60% of the questions have vanished. Does anyone else have the issue where adding a new question it comes up with a pop up warning about leaving the page? I suspect this is part of the problem. But as I said, it used to work like a dream and this issue has only fairly recently appeared.
