Doing More with Microsoft Forms

There are millions of Microsoft 365 users worldwide. Companies rely on the software to power email, drive productivity, and connect to associates. Forms is another excellent tool for users of Microsoft 365.

As of April 2020, Office 365 became Microsoft 365. The value of the software suite to communications and collaboration is still intact. A Microsoft 365 subscription offers Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint, and other valuable applications. These are familiar options.

However, Microsoft is continually evolving its cloud-based services. Microsoft Teams is a chat-based workspace combining people, content, and tools. There is also a To-Do application, Flow for notification management, and Power Bi Pro analytics. That is to name only a few.

An extra good one to get comfy with? Microsoft Forms.

Microsoft 365 Forms Makes Data Collection Simpler

Microsoft Forms enables your business to create surveys, produce quizzes, organize polls, and capture data.

This simple-to-use application streamlines form creation: you choose “New Form” or “New Quiz,” input the form particulars, add images if you would like them, and you are ready to go. You could click and drag to select your question types from multiple choice, text, rating, or date possibilities.

Ready-made themes will enable you to pick different colors or graphics to customize your survey. Before you go live, you could also preview and test your survey. It is possible to even share with a colleague to collaborate on the survey design.

It’s as simple as that. In only a few minutes you will be able to build the tool you need to:

  • gather employee input
  • gauge customer satisfaction
  • survey your team about how they feel about returning to the office
  • quiz people who are doing virtual learning

Once you have your finished link, you can paste it into an email, post it on social media, or put it on your website. You can also generate a QR code for mobile device use.

Find Results with Microsoft Forms

OK, you have shared your latest survey, and the replies are raining down on you! There is a dashboard for it. You are going to be able to track the number of replies and average completion time. Plus, it is possible to drill down into specific question data.

For any question, you can show your findings in charts or graphs for that PowerPoint.

Because this is part of the Microsoft suite, Forms combines with Excel, too. You can also import the data there to leverage the full force of Excel’s analysis tools.

If you want to get even more sophisticated, upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics 365 Customer Voice. Previously known as Microsoft Forms Pro, this application enables you to collect real-time client feedback.

There are lots of survey tools that are available online today. SoGoSurvey, SurveyMonkey, or TypeForm are the top examples, but free of charge versions may limit the number of questions or those polled.

Microsoft Forms can be integrated with other Microsoft 365 tools in your subscription. For immediate consumption or call center satisfaction, Forms is an easy-to-use application. It is simple to keep in touch with clients and employees.
