Get Started with Microsoft Forms

Overview

With Microsoft Forms, you can create surveys, quizzes, and polls, and easily see results as they come in. 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.

Microsoft Forms makes it easy to collect and analyze data. Tied in with Microsoft SharePoint, PowerApps, and PowerAutomate you can create solutions for collecting information, automate processes, and define workflows to manage information and provide notifications quickly and easily.
