Discover new Microsoft Forms features - attractive invitation cards and live feedback during PowerPoint shows!

Microsoft Forms has introduced two new features that the author, Daniel Christian, is excited about. The features include attractive invitation cards and live feedback during PowerPoint presentations. With the new live presentation capabilities, you can share your survey live, either during online or in-person events. By scanning the QR code or using a short URL displayed on the survey, audiences can participate in live surveys and view real-time responses.

These interaction and engagement tools are deemed crucial in attracting and maintaining audience interest. Present mode is triggered by clicking the "present" icon located at the top right corner, from there, a QR code and URL are displayed to audience members. Upon scanning the code or entering the URL on their smartphones, participants can then access the live survey. In present mode, all responses are visible as they are submitted and are saved in the response tab once you exit the mode and switch to editing mode.

Preference is given to "Anyone can respond" setting especially when targeting external audiences or a wider data capture. Switching to other permission modes may require respondents to sign-in to a Microsoft account. In concurrent development, Microsoft is also improving the Forms PowerPoint add-on experience to include the present mode. This feature will enable seamless workflow without the need to open another browser or switch screens.

Key Features of New Microsoft Forms

  • Attractive Invitation Cards: Enhances appeal to potential respondents.
  • Live feedback during PowerPoint presentation: Surveys can be conducted live, enhancing interaction and engagement.
  • Present Mode: Displays survey as a QR code or short URL for audiences to participate.

These new features offer a more interactive and engaging way of conducting surveys and quizzes. With the upcoming enhancements in the PowerPoint add-on, users can look forward to an even more seamless presentation experience.
