Send your form to others

In Microsoft Forms, you can send your form to students, parents, and colleagues in a few different ways, depending upon your needs.

Send options

You can copy a link to the form that you created and paste it into a shared area, send the form link in an email, send a QR-code for your form, or you can embed the form directly into a blog or web page. By clicking the link or scanning the QR code, people can respond to the form and submit their answers using their desktop or mobile web browser.

Four form sharing options displayed: Copy, Email, QR-code, and more

Send a form link with others

Copy and paste the link button

If you don’t have the email addresses of the people you want to view your form, or if you don’t want to use email for this purpose, you can easily copy a custom link that lets you send your form to others.

  1. In Microsoft Forms, open the form you want to send.

  2. Click Send Form.

  3. Under Copy and paste the link, click Copy.

  4. Copy and then paste this link wherever your intended audience can see and click it to gain access to your form (for example, a shared class notebook).

Note: Anyone with the link address will be able to see and complete your form. Be sure you're comfortable sharing the contents before sending the link.

Invite others to view your form through email

Email the link button

  1. In Microsoft Forms, open the form you want to send.

  2. Click Send Form.

  3. Click Email the link.

  4. Your default email editing application opens. Note, you might see a security prompt letting you know an application is trying to open your email editor.

  5. In the To box of your email editor, type the email addresses of the people you want to view your form. Microsoft Forms includes a brief note for the recipient in the email body so they have proper context for your invitation and a link to your form.

  6. When you’re ready to send your form invitation, click Send.

Note: Anyone who receives the form link through email will be able to forward that email to other people where they can see and complete your form. Be sure you're comfortable sharing the contents before sending the link.
