Microsoft Forms, the Office 365 survey/quiz capability, just got few improvements.

Create Forms using templates

You can now create new forms based on ‘professional’ template matching usual business cases (satisfaction survey, volunteer registration, product evaluation or well-being pulse among 20 different template categories).

The templates are available straight from the Forms home page (


Create Forms by importing Word or PDF file

Another improvement is you can now import Word or PDF documents to create your Forms.

The file size limit is 10 Mb and it is recommended to contains only text and clearly formatted for survey (clear separation between questions) like shown below


You can import such files using the Quick import button available in the home page


When importing the file you can choose which type of Forms (Form or Quiz) you want to create


Then Forms starts importing and converting the file
