I have someone who needs to create an online form to capture data and is there a setting that would allow quick navigation to a name in a dropdown? e.g. if someone's name starts with S - that instead of scrolling down, they can just hit S to get to it? Thank you

@Anne Walsh no that isn't possible with Forms yet although there is a uservoice request for it which you can vote for at https://microsoftforms.uservoice.com/forums/386451-welcome-to-microsoft-forms-suggestion-box/suggest..., Currently it would need to be done with a Power Apps form.

@RobElliottThat's good to know. I tend to assume that it's lack of knowledge on my part and check first :) Thanks for the response.
