Send an email receipt of responses

Tip: Create a survey, quiz, or poll with Microsoft Forms. Want to create an advanced survey? Try Microsoft Forms Pro.

Once you've created a survey, poll, or quiz, you can select an option to allow respondents to receive an email confirmation of their responses.

Note: Email confirmation receipt is only available when your respondents belong to your organization and you've checked Record Name in More form settings More options button > Settings > Only people in my organization can respond.

  1. In the form for which you want to turn on this option, click More form settings More options button > Settings.

  2. In the Options for responses section under Notification, check Send email receipt to respondents.

After submitting responses, respondents will then receive a confirmation email, which includes a thank you message and link to view their responses.
