Microsoft Forms is getting its second big update of the week. In the latest addition, Microsoft is allowing users to select images as choices in the surveys and polls they create. This has been one of the most frequent requests amongst Forms users.

Microsoft Forms is a platform that helps professionals and educators create content in minutes. Forms can be surveys, feedback forms, or quizzes. They can be shared with anyone, and form owners can see the results of completed forms in real time.

In a blog post, Microsoft says support for images will be available in forms, surveys, quizzes, and other content. Users can insert images through a bulk import tool, copy and paste, or drag and drop.

However, the size limit for images is 5MP across Microsoft Forms on mobile and desktop.

“Images will be displayed when users create & preview the survey in design time, when responders fill the survey or when the owner wants to check details in individual result page,” explains Yuanquan HU, a senior program manager at Microsoft, in a blog post.

“The rest of other cases (such as analysis view in response tab or data in Excel worksheet), there is only text showing up as representations of these choices.”

Custom Themes

Earlier this week, Microsoft Forms received custom themes. Thousands of new themes are available, and as this is the Holiday Season, a bunch of them reflect upcoming festivities. Microsoft says they allow users to make more emotional content in Microsoft Forms.

Importantly, many of the themes are copyright free, so they can be used whenever someone wants and in any situation.
