Office 365 makes surveys smarter with Forms Pro

Office 365 makes surveys smarter with Forms Pro

Microsoft is working on a professional version of Forms, a tool that has been in Office 365 for some time. Forms Pro allows Dynamics 365 CRM/ERP to be linked to other Microsoft services.

Microsoft Forms has been available to all Office 365 users since April last year. The tool started its life under Office 365 Education, but is now available to everyone. This allows you to easily create surveys, questions or polls.

Today, Microsoft is working on a more powerful variant called Forms Pro according to ZDNet. The aim is to enable extensive research with real-time feedback analysis.

Power Platform

With Forms Pro, you can gather feedback from customers in every step of their experience in real time. In this way, companies can make products that customers want. All data can be linked to Dynamics 365, Common Data Services (CDS) and Power Platform.

Microsoft wants to give its Power Platform a big boost from this year on. The platform, which provides a framework for business intelligence and workflow automation, will be central to Redmond’s future strategy.

With Power BI, Flow and the PowerApps, Microsoft has a capable business intelligence and automation package in house. Power BI takes care of data processing and analysis, while Flow is a kind of professional variant of IFTTT that facilitates automation of tasks and workflows. PowerApps make it possible to create applications without code in a simple way.

Forms Pro will be available in preview version from 21 February. As of today, you can sign up to test the feature. The link is not yet active at the time of writing. Throughout the day Microsoft will put the page online.
