I see that this questions has been posed in multiple places, multiple times. We currently have a product that we use for Surveys, not SurveyMonkey or anything like that. It literally integrates with our CRM.
Our license will be expiring 5/31 with this company and I've been tasked with researching new survey options. Because we now have the full blown version of O365, I'm trying to get user adoption so we can finally work within one system....AND....move towards 21st century thinking.
My problem with MSForms is two fold. There are others - but the main problems are:
a. You cannot create 'sections' as you can with other products.
b. You cannot create a numbering system, so for example - instead of just 1, 2, 3 for each question - I 'may' want 1a, 1b, 1c, 2a, etc..... OR the ability to not show numbers at all.
Okay - one more - we need to have the ability to direct our thank you for taking the survey to a specific site.
These options would appear, in my mind, to be relatively easy options to incorporate into the program. I see that these questions have been posed since 2016. We're almost in the middle of 2018. Shouldn't these have been addressed by now?
Please consider putting some of these requests further towards the top of the list. Yes - I have read and posted to the User Voice section, but nothing seems to be going on there with those requests.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

I totally agree. We have accounts with two survey tools and would dearly love to move onto Forms to save money and get things in one place. Along with the above mentioned improvements more question types would be great and having some sort of road-map would make planning for the future a bit easier.
So Microsoft, please help us help you and make things a bit more transparent for us. What is your vision for Forms. Is it meant to be competition for the Monkey and the Gizmo, or will it stay just a small, lightweight tool good for short and very simple surveys forever?

I agree Sections for Microsoft Forms would be great - although you could use Branching to get "fake" section breaks - but that's not ideal.
Finally if we were able to add a Text Block to Forms that would be awesome - The Text block would let you just add explanatory text in the middle of the survey.

Unfortunately, that would create a numbered question. It's not the same.
If you wanted 5 questions in section one, you'd want them numbered 1-5.
If you then have 8 questions in section two, you'd want them numbered 1-8.
And above each section a blurb or heading of some sort.
Not only that, we also asked them to have question 'groups'.
Such as 1a, 1b, 1c, 2a, 2b, 2c, etc.
AND.... even better - an option to NOT have any numbers at all.
