Microsoft Forms

Introduction

Microsoft Forms is a simple, lightweight tool that lets you quickly create a form, collect responses in real time, and view automatic charts to visualize your data. You can build a form in minutes with no training necessary and respondents can fill it in on any browser on any device without having to install a separate app.

Microsoft Forms is deeply integrated with Office365 apps like Teams to provide a seamless experience for basic data collection. 

With Microsoft Forms, you can create:

  • Surveys: Collect customer feedback, measure employee satisfaction, and organize team events
  • Quizzes: Measure student knowledge, evaluate class progress, and focus on topics that need improvement
  • Polls: Find out what the class thinks of your trip idea, where the team wants to meet, or how attendees react to your presentation.

Start to create your first form from http://forms.office.com.
