Microsoft forms auto-fill suggestion

Hello!

 

I am currently working on a project where I require people to fill out forms but with exact spelling of names (that might not be theirs). Because the organization has nearly 400 members, I cannot just do a drop-down or check-box item on a form. I am curious if there is any way I can have Microsoft forms suggest / auto-fill the name section of the form once they start typing a name, much like Outlook will autocomplete for emails / contacts? Any help is much appreciated, thank you!

@brianrcaskey  no  unfortunately there's no way to auto-complete a name or autopopulate data in Forms. A uservoice request for the autocomplete is at https://microsoftforms.uservoice.com/forums/386451-welcome-to-microsoft-forms-suggestion-box/suggest... and one to pre-populate fields in the form is at https://microsoftforms.uservoice.com/forums/386451-welcome-to-microsoft-forms-suggestion-box/suggest...

At present, the names of students are found at the beginning of Microsoft Form > Review > People.   After giving feedback to all questions of a student, it'd be more convenient to have a button to go to the next student so that we do not have to scroll up to the top and select the next student.@brianrcaskey
