If you’ve ever created quizzes in Microsoft Forms, then you know how easy it is! Microsoft Forms Pro, the newest member of Microsoft’s Power Platform, extends the capabilities of Microsoft Forms in Office 365. The basic Forms app included with Office has somewhat of a limited toolset. Microsoft Forms Pro features additional functions, including advanced branching, theme customization, individual tracking links, data connection with Dynamic 365 workflow automation using Microsoft Flow. Response data is available in real time but is also available in PowerBI for further analysis.
Microsoft Forms Pro is a simple yet comprehensive survey solution that allows businesses to easily capture and analyze feedback to improve customer, employee, and product experiences. I decided to challenge myself to learn how to use this new product and write about it in a blog. This post is the second of a projected three-part series. Part one covered creating a survey.

Once you use this “simple, yet comprehensive” tool, you’ll realize how valuable the data you attain is! This blog post will walk you through the steps for creating a simple quiz.
The public preview is available to anyone with a Microsoft work account, including both Microsoft Office 365 commercial customers, and Dynamics 365 customers. Forms Pro is expected to be a paid service, once generally available.
