Introducing Microsoft Forms app – A new data collection tool in Office 365

The Microsoft Office 365 Suite is the collaboration, mobility, and portability tool for UT Health San Antonio. The applications available to you offer powerful capabilities to enhance collaboration and efficiency and are supported by university approved cloud services. The Office 365 apps can be accessed via the My UT Health home page using the square grid in the top left-hand corner of the page.

With Microsoft Forms, an extension of Office 365 productivity tools, you can create surveys, quizzes, and polls, and easily see results as they come in. When you create a quiz or form, you can invite others to respond to it using any web browser, even on mobile devices. As results are submitted, you can use built-in analytics to evaluate responses. Form data, such as quiz results, can be easily exported to Excel for additional analysis.

Take your Form to the next level with Microsoft PowerApps

If you need a more sophisticated tool for creating your own applications, try another Office 365 tool called PowerApps. It has the capability to connect to different data sources like Excel, SharePoint Online, and SQL Server. PowerApps is mobile-friendly and can run on web browsers or on phones.

Microsoft PowerApps and Forms are included in your university provided Office 365 license and are compatible with iOS, Android and Windows devices.
