Forms Settings Options

One of the benefits of using Office 365 is the ability to share content in a number of ways. Microsoft Forms setting options are available to customize according to your needs. Before the link is shared to send and collect responses in a Form or Quiz, the settings can be adjusted by clicking on the action dots (...) found just to the right of the share button in the top right of the window.


One of the settings available for a quiz is the option to show results automatically. When turned on, responders will see their results and correct answers immediately after submitting the quiz. You can also limit who can fill out the form in settings. Other options for responses include the ability to set start and end dates, turning the form on/off, and customization of the thank you message. Questions can be shuffled, but avoid this feature if branching is used. You can also opt to get email notifications for each response.
