Microsoft Forms: One of the handiest freebies in Microsoft 365 

Microsoft 365 is one of the most popular cloud platforms in the world, with about 345 million paid seats. Users get a stable of over 20 different apps, including the core MS Office suite. 

With so many different apps, it’s not uncommon for some to go unused. Companies may not even be aware they have access to these other helpful tools. 

One of the handiest apps you get with a Microsoft 365 subscription is Microsoft Forms. 

What Is Microsoft Forms? 

Microsoft Forms is a drag-and-drop form, quiz, and survey creator. It’s simple to use and allows you to send out surveys via a link. Recipients can fill out your form online from any device. 

How to Get Started in Forms: 

*Visit and log into your Microsoft account. 

*Choose “New Form” or “New Quiz: from the top menu 

*OR you can choose to explore the built-in templates 

*Click “Add New” to add a new form field. You can choose from field types: 

  • Choice (i.e., multiple-choice question) 
  • Text
  • Rating
  • Date
  • Ranking 
  • Likert (a scale that records attitudes/opinions about a topic) 
  • Net Promoter Score® (a scale from “not likely” to “extremely likely”) 
  • Section (separator that can include a title and image) 

*Enter your questions 

*Once finished, click “Send” at the top. You can distribute the survey using the following options: 

  • Link to a web form 
  • Email 
  • QR code 
  • Embed in a web page
