An underrated and often overlooked application found within the Microsoft 365 platform is Microsoft Forms. This application is used by thousands of businesses to create more connected workplaces and to make remote work more efficient. Microsoft Forms allows you to create forms quickly and collect responses in real-time while also visualizing the captured data via automatic charts. With no training, you can create a form that respondents can easily receive, view, and fill out regardless of the browser they’re using. This means respondents don’t have to install a special app just to view and respond within the Microsoft Form that you send.
To use Microsoft Forms, you’ll need to head over to the forms.microsoft.com website. From here, you can log into your Microsoft 365 account and you’ll be directed to the My Forms section of the Microsoft Forms platform. The forms shown here are not group-connected. Instead, they are all of your forms. If you’ve never used Microsoft Forms before, you won’t have any forms listed here.
You can simply click on the Create a New Form button to get started on creating a customized form that meets your exact needs and preferences. Everything from the title of the form to its content and even its format can easily be customized from this point forward as you create your very own Microsoft Form. You can ask multiple-choice questions on the form, conduct Net Promoter Score surveys, and much more. You can even see how the form you create will appear on computers and laptops as well as mobile devices.
Microsoft Forms help businesses achieve positive growth by significantly improving collaboration capabilities. Take, for example, you want to host a team or organizational event. When it comes to organizing teams or large events, you can’t go wrong with using Microsoft Forms. The application makes it simple to solicit client input before, during, and after the event as well as to measure customer satisfaction in real-time.
Because of the advanced accessibility features of the Microsoft Form you create, the people you send it to can access it at any time, from any browser, and any location as long as they have an internet connection. Plus, because of enhanced collaboration capabilities, your form can be used by more than one user at a single time, allowing real-time answers and changes to be updated across the entire form’s user-base in real-time.
Another way Microsoft Forms helps businesses achieve positive growth is by making it easier for IT admins to manage user licenses and stay in compliance with SOC regulations. More so, IT admins have full control over the sharing capabilities of the forms, making it a cinch to set user permissions. With greater IT admin control comes the ability to mitigate potential IT hazards like data breaches.
It’s also worth noting the Microsoft Forms takes data collection to the next level of success. Because Microsoft Forms is an application within Microsoft 365 programs, this means the data collected from your form can easily sync with a variety of other platforms, like Dynamics CRM, Oracle, Office 365 Planner, SQL, and more. Gone are the days of having to input your collected data into every platform individually. With Microsoft Forms, you collect the data and it’s automatically synced with whichever platforms you choose.
