Why is there no possibility to set a restriction for text response? For instance, it would be great to associate a regular expression to the answer for input validation, in order to check the format and/or the content of the given response. 

 

Is this a such strange idea?

 

Many thanks,

Marco

@Marco13_457 the uservoice requests for regex in answers are here.

@RobElliott I followed the thread and even found a YouTube clip of a user using it, however it doesn't appear to be available for me. When I select Restrictions it forces it to be a numeric choice. There is no "Email" or "Custom"  choice for Restrictions. Do you know if there is an option to enable it?

@Matt_5 that's only available with Dynamics 365 Customer Voice (the re-named Microsoft Forms Pro) as outlined here.
