If you are an enthusiastic follower of current events in the Cybersecurity and Infosecurity space, you are well aware of the high-profile cybersecurity events that have taken place, especially in the United States.
More and more of our clients are coming to us with questions about optimizing and simplifying remote operations. We always recommend the Microsoft applications that our clients know and love, but our latest obsession is a less-known Microsoft 365 app called Microsoft Forms.
This year has left many professional teams trying to adapt to remote operations. The demand for Cloud-based collaboration and communication tools has truly reached an all-time high. More and more of our clients have been testing the waters of virtual work and many of them have been doing so by mobilizing the Cloud version of Microsoft applications like Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and more through a consolidated virtual platform on Microsoft Teams.
As a team of experienced IT service providers, we never hesitate to recommend Microsoft solutions to our clients – no matter the business environment. This is because, for most professionals, Microsoft is familiar and comfortable while still packing the powerful productivity punch that professionals need in times of change and uncertainty.
However, in our recent conversations with clients, we’ve realized that there is an incredibly useful Microsoft application that many professionals don’t even know about. Microsoft Forms is a powerful application that can help organizations survey clients and colleagues, collect relevant data, and gain critical insights into various business projects and processes.
However, from our experience, Microsoft Forms is often overlooked by busy professionals. In fact, many of the professionals we recommend it to had no idea it even existed! We want to change that and help business teams of all shapes and sizes come to realize how Microsoft Forms can help them streamline a more connected and data-driven workplace.
Microsoft Forms is a Microsoft 365 application that allows you to create fillable forms quickly, collect responses in real-time, and visualize data using automatic charts. This means that within a few minutes and without any training, you can create a poll, survey, or quiz that respondents can fill out. Even better? Any form you create can be filled out by respondents using any browser meaning you don’t have to install any applications locally.
You might be wondering, what are the different ways I might use Microsoft Forms within my organization? Worry not. We’ve broken down the three different kinds of forms you might create with Microsoft Forms – surveys, polls, and quizzes – and provided some suggestions of how your team might make use of each.
Now that you have an idea of what Microsoft Forms is and the endless ways you might make use of it, let’s do a little crash course on how to get started using the app immediately. The more you familiarize yourself with the application, the easier time you’ll have mobilizing it however you see fit.
10-step instructions for getting started with Microsoft Forms:
We’ve done our best to break down the basics and fill you in on everything you need to know about the Microsoft Forms app. However, when it comes to getting the hang of a new application, it’s sometimes a good idea to call in back-up.
If you’re looking for some additional support to help you mobilize, integrate, and optimize your use of Microsoft Forms, reach out to a team of IT professionals who specialize in Microsoft solutions. The right team of professionals will help you position the app for optimal performance and data-driven strategy.
