Microsoft Forms has been available for quite some time, including in the education market, but it was only in June of last year that Microsoft announced the Microsoft Forms Public Preview program for Office 365 commercial consumers, allowing business users to easily create surveys, polls, and quizzes. The tool has been available in Preview mode since July, but Microsoft has now announced that it's shedding the Preview tag after months of testing.
Forms is a simple, yet powerful tool for gathering feedback, measuring customer satisfaction, and more, as Microsoft describes it:
With Microsoft Forms, your employees can easily solicit client input, measure customer satisfaction, and organize team events, within minutes. The app is simple to use and works on any web browser, so it can be accessed from anywhere, anytime. With real time responses and automatic charts built in, Microsoft Forms makes it easy to understand the data right away. And for companies that want to custom brand their surveys, Forms supports the addition of themes, logo, and images. We also know that many users work in teams, so users can collaborate on a single form. Forms can be used within applications you know and love, such as Excel, SharePoint, Teams, Flow, and Sway.
Since the beginning of the Preview program, Microsoft Forms has had more 50,000 companies involved in testing the tool, and based on feedback from these users, Microsoft has added a number of new features and improvements, such as SOC Compliance, with GDPR compliance coming in May 2018, the ability for IT admins to manage user licenses and an increased limit of 50,000 survey responses per each form. All these improvements and more mean that Forms is now "enterprise-ready", and Office 365 commercial customers can access the tool here.
