Use of Drop down list within Office Forms

Can we have the option of a drop down menu within Office Forms. This is available within Google Forms and is a very nice feature.

    Really? After 3 years for this basic functionality. You want companies to leverage this platform, but the basics are still missing.

    you are missing some obvious features. MS Form is no good. We're asking for such simple features here. You shouldn't even offer Forms at all if this is going to be this poorly designed.

    As mentioned in the previous post, selections in the drop down lists do not populate the excel sheet. Without this functionality it does make drop downs pretty useless with a spreadsheet. Would there happen to be a fix in the works to resolve this?

    The drop down list in forms does not populate the results to the excel sheet. This makes the form useless for compiling data as you have to check each individual submission for the data required in that field.

    Is there a way to alphabetize your drop down menu? I tried copying and pasting an alphabetized list into the drop down menu, but unfortunately that did not work.

    It is only possible to use "drop down list" if its viewed on a desktop computer. If you view form as an end user on a mobile phone, it is not shown as a drop down.
    We need it to work on mobile phones as well.

    Kelly Eleftheriou is correct. 1) Add a "Choice" question. 2) Click the ellipsis (...) in the lower right. 3) Select "dropdown."

    I've been working with Form but I don't know when exactly the added this option but while creating the list, on the right hand of required you can open the menu and it gives you the drop down option.

    Please add this feature. It would make the forms feature a more complete tool and is necessary in many businesses' operations.

    Some users are saying that when using an option question with a large set of options it will switch to a drop-down. This is not my experience. It should be added as an explicit option anyway. Without it Forms is almost useless.

    When does the selection change to a drop-down. I tried on my office computer and the (long) list was a drop-down, but when I tried again at home, it was radio buttons again!
