Microsoft Forms Quick Start

Send a form

Send a form in Microsoft Forms

Set authentication setting

By default, only people within your organization can submit responses to your form or quiz. If you want to allow anyone to submit responses, select the drop-down Only people in my organization can respond and then select Anyone with the link can respond. You can toggle between these two settings by selecting the drop-down.

Note: Anyone with the link address will be able to see and complete your form or quiz. Be sure you're comfortable sharing the contents before changing this default option.

Select who can respond to your form

Send a form link to others

If you don’t have the email addresses of the people you want to view your form or quiz, 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 and select Share.

  2. Make sure the Link button is selected, and then click Copy next to the text box that displays a form URL.

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

Send a form QR code

  2. Select the QR button to view a QR code for your form.

  3. Select Download and then paste this link wherever your intended audience can scan it with a QR code scanner, such as a mobile device, to gain access to your form or quiz (for example, a shared class notebook).

Embed in a webpage

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

  2. Select the Embed button.

  3. Click Copy next to the text box that displays the embed code, and then type or paste this embed code into a blog or web page to embed your form within the document.

Invite others through email

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

  2. Select the Email button.

  3. When your default email editing application opens, type the email addresses of the people you want to view your form in the To box of your email editor. 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.

  4. When you’re ready to send your form or quiz invitation, select 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.
