Have you ever wanted a simple easy way to capture data from your customers, partners or employees? If so then you are going to love Microsoft Forms Pro, the newest member of Microsoft's Power Platform. 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 project and write about it in a blog. This post is the last in a three-part series. Part one covered creating a survey. Part two covered creating a quiz. And finally, in part three, I will cover sharing your survey or quiz and viewing and analyzing the data.
Microsoft Forms Pro extends the capabilities of Microsoft Forms in Office 365. However, the basic Forms app included with Office has limited 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.
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.
Sending Surveys and Quizzes in Microsoft Forms Pro
There are currently five different options for sending your survey or quiz. The directions I will give are for sending a survey. The process for sending a quiz is very similar, as the options are the same. (There are slight differences in what you will click on).
1. Email: Send the survey link by email using the built-in email feature.
Simply open the survey you want to send, click on Send Survey> Email
By default, a subject line and an unsubscribe link are auto-populated along with a button/ link to your survey. If you want to add an additional link to your survey in the body of your message, just click on Insert Survey Link.
3. Embed: Embed the survey or quiz within a webpage by pasting the survey's embed code into your webpage's source code. You must first choose from one of the three options for how you want your survey to appear. Your three options are as follows:
To embed your survey:
First, open the survey you want to embed. Go to Send Survey>Embed.
Under Select the embed type for your survey, choose how you want your survey to appear. You have three options.
Inline: The survey is displayed statistically on the webpage.
Pop-up: The survey is displayed in a pop-up window (based on the respondent's actions).
Button: The survey is displayed when a certain button is selected.
By default, the text on this button is "provide feedback."
Next, you have two options for adding parameters:
Select one or all out-of-the-box parameters under Select parameters to add in embed code
Create a new parameter by selecting Add custom parameter.
Select Generate code.
Lastly, select Copy and paste the embed code into the webpage.
