Microsoft Forms is a service that will soon be integrated into Office 365 Education. For the time being, the service is available in its preview version and should roll out this summer.

Microsoft Forms is a new part of Office 365 Education that allows teachers or students to create custom surveys, quizzes, questionnaires, registration forms, and more. Once the author creates a form, they can invite others to complete it. Forms can be created using any web browser, on PC, on a tablet or on your phone.

Forms will also brings various analysis tools that allow authors to see how their surveys or quizzes evolve over time, with results able to be exported to Excel for further analysis.

As for the launch date, Microsoft has been generous enough to state that “updates to Office 365 Education [are] coming summer 2016”. We all know that the Windows 10 Anniversary Build will land this summer, therefore we can safely say that Microsoft Forms will be a part of it.

Microsoft’s Office 365 Education pack is very helpful to students and teachers alike, making the school experience more modern and pleasant:

We could not be more excited about the path we’re on and what we’re delivering for teachers and students this next school year. We want every student and teacher to reach their full potential as a result of using our products. Central to this commitment is helping teachers adapt content to meet the needs of each of their students, including students with learning differences.

However, users insist that a similar Forms service should be also developed for professionals. Microsoft has not yet mentioned anything about a “Forms Pro” but we all know that the company always takes into accounts user suggestions. Therefore, it is quite possible to hear about a similar project dedicated to business use in the near future.
