Microsoft Forms – Public Preview

Microsoft Forms – Public Preview

Recently, Microsoft announced that a public preview of Microsoft Forms will be released soon. Microsoft Forms is a simple and lightweight app for creating polls, surveys, and quizzes that lets your users easily gather customer feedback, measure satisfaction, learn what employees think, organize team events, and more. It works on any web browser, and includes features such as themes, logo and image support, real time responses, automatic charts, question branching, and support for collaboration.

When you create a quiz or form, you can invite others to respond to it using any web browser, even on mobile devices. As results are submitted, you can use built-in analytics to evaluate responses. Form data, such as quiz results, can be easily exported to Excel for additional analysis or grading.

Forms is new, and while it doesn’t quite have the feature set equivalent to Google Forms (yet), we are excited to see how our customers can make use of this new capability.

How do I get Microsoft forms?

Forms is currently in preview for education customers, but will be in public preview status soon – which means your Office 365 administrator will have to enable it. To do so, they simply access the “Services & Add-Ins” setting from the Office Admin Portal, and search for “Microsoft Forms”.

The Power and Simplicity of Office 365

For productivity software, we recommend Microsoft’s Office 365. It’s an affordable and powerful way to give your company the collaboration tools and capabilities it needs. Because it’s subscription based it’s easy to stay up to date and get the latest features, and install the software wherever you need it. It ensures people can work how they need to work. And it keeps getting better and better.
