MC335638: Forms: Split sending and sharing entry point

Updated May 05, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Updated March 29, 2022: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

We are making it easier to share a Form with a collaborator or with respondents by clearly separating out the sharing process.

This is a follow up to MC24233. Based on feedback, we made the decision to make additional changes before we proceeded with the full rollout. We are now ready to move forward and apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for your feedback and patience. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 79450.

To remove the confusion between collecting response from others and collaborating with others, we decouple entry point of sending and sharing into separate paths. In future iterations, more sending options and effective channels will be added to keep improving the detailed sending experiences.

MC335638: Forms: Split sending and sharing entry point

When this will happen

This rollout will begin in late February, and we expect the rollout to be completed by late May (previously late April).

How this will affect your organization

Previously, sharing a Microsoft Form with respondents and with collaborators was initiated from the same share button.

This update will make it so that the button for sharing the Form with a collaborator will be separate from where you would initiate sending the Form to respondents.

What you need to do to prepare

No action required. You may want to update your documentation as needed.
