Microsoft Forms Public Preview for Office 365 commercial customers

Following the launch of Microsoft Forms in Education last summer, we heard from businesses that they need an easy-to-use tool for creating surveys, quizzes and polls. Today, we’re rolling out the public preview of Microsoft Forms to our Office 365 commercial subscribers, so you can collect information from customers, employees and partners. The preview is currently rolling out to tenants whose entire organizations are signed up for First Release, and will gradually be available to other tenants in a few months.

A customer satisfaction survey is being shown being created and shared with Microsoft Forms. First, questions are added with response options. Then a theme is chosen before she Share pane is selected, showing all the options for sharing the survey.

Collect information with surveys, quizzes and polls

Microsoft Forms is a simple, lightweight tool that lets you collect customer feedback, measure employee satisfaction and organize team events. You can create a survey in minutes with no training needed, and respondents can fill it out on any browser without having to install a separate app.

Microsoft Forms comes with question branching, so surveys flow the way you want them to. You can also add themes or your company logo, so they look great without a lot of work. Just send out a link and your survey dynamically adapts to every screen, so it’s easy for respondents to fill it out on the go.

Simple, powerful analysis and Microsoft Excel integration

Survey, quiz and poll results are all available in real-time—just navigate to the Responses tab, where you’ll also find auto-generated charts that help you visualize response data in an instant. You can also open all results in Microsoft Excel with one click if you need to conduct more custom, in-depth analysis.

Management and compliance via Office 365

Microsoft Forms is part of the Office 365 suite and adheres to the compliance, security and privacy levels you’ve come to expect from the Office 365 apps. Companies can collect information without users having to go to non-secure solutions, or IT needing to build and maintain custom surveying tools. IT admins can also manage user licenses and enable or disable co-authoring of Microsoft Forms outside their organization.

Microsoft Forms, PowerApps and SharePoint lists

Microsoft Forms offers an easy solution for basic data collection via surveys, quizzes and polls. For more heavy-duty needs, we have announced new tools to create custom forms with PowerApps and SharePoint lists. PowerApps lets you connect to your existing cloud services and data sources to quickly build custom apps that your organization can view, edit and share. When you use it to build an app from a SharePoint list, you can create custom forms ranging from contact lists and travel approvals to purchase requests and customer service tickets. We now have your forms needs covered from basic data collection to custom apps for your organization.

Allergan embraces growth pharma model, accelerates business with the Microsoft Secure Productive Enterprise

With 22 acquisitions in the past five years, it’s easy to see how Allergan is a leading exponent of the new “Growth Pharma” business model. Expanding its diversified portfolio of branded and generic pharmaceuticals by acquiring companies like Botox and Zeltiq Aesthetics, Allergan is pursuing a rigorous growth strategy, rather than investing heavily in R&D. This approach, known in the industry as “open science,” sees the company enriching its intellectual property by acquiring new talent, promising new products and partnering closely with many external stakeholders. It requires an agile, IT-enabled workplace to pull off the rapid employee onboarding and a rich culture of teamwork and creativity to make this strategy work. At the same time, it’s critically important for Allergan to ensure the security of its IP and to remain compliant in this highly regulated industry. So, it’s great news that Allergan chose the Secure Productive Enterprise solution to enable this disruptive way of doing business in the pharmaceutical industry.

Here’s what CIO Sean Lennon has to say about the organization’s decision to facilitate a new culture of work at Allergan that securely enables teamwork and creativity for all workers with the help of the Secure Productive Enterprise solution:

“As Allergan continues to build its global portfolio of products and services, it’s our role in IT to enable the company’s scalability. That’s why we chose the Microsoft Secure Productive Enterprise, because it allows me to deliver a secure technology experience that drives creativity, collaboration and teamwork for the business. So, while employees are working more collaboratively and are empowered to innovate with immediate access to all the tools they need—Office 365, Enterprise Mobility + Security and Windows 10 Enterprise—I’m also saving money by consolidating our IT landscape and reducing the burden of on-premises maintenance. It’s always a challenge to maintain a lean IT organization and provide the best tools for enabling the business to achieve its goals, but we’ve achieved the right balance with Microsoft.”

Office Web Viewer: View Office documents in a browser

What is the Office Web Viewer?

It’s a service that creates Office Web Viewer links.  Office Web Viewer links open Word, PowerPoint or Excel files in the browser that would otherwise be downloaded. You can easily turn a download link into an Office Web Viewer link to use in your website or blog (e.g., recipes, photo slide show, a menu, or a budget template).

Some benefits of the Office Web Viewer include:

  • You don’t need to convert Office files for the web (e.g., PDF, HTML).
  • Anyone can view Office files from your website or blog, even if they don’t have Office.
  • It keeps eyes on your website or blog, because readers don’t need to download the file and they stay in the browser.
  • One link will work for computers, tablets, and mobile phones.

How to get started

To use Office Web Viewer, click this link: http://officewebviewer.com

Then copy and paste the document’s URL in the text box. It looks like this:

To make the URL yourself, you can use the link below, where <Document Location> is a URL to the document.

http://view.officeapps.live.com/op/view.aspx?src=<Document Location>

Note: the <Document Location> needs to be URL encoded, and the document must be publicly accessible on the internet.

Here are a few examples of documents in the Office Web Viewer:

  • At the Microsoft Build conference there were a lot of presentations with PowerPoint decks. If you want to watch a video of one of the presentations, you can also look at the PowerPoint deck that goes with it using the Office Web Viewer. http://view.officeapps.live.com/op/view.aspx?src=http%3a%2f%2fvideo.ch9.ms%2fbuild%2f2011%2fslides%2fTOOL-532T_Sutter.pptx
  • On a popular banking site we found this great Wedding Budget Planner spreadsheet.  To preview the spreadsheet instead of downloading it, we created an Office Web Viewer link. http://view.officeapps.live.com/op/view.aspx?src=http%3A%2F%2Flearn.bankofamerica.com%2Fcontent%2Fexcel%2FWedding_Budget_Planner_Spreadsheet.xlsx
  • Here’s a school newsletter template we found on Bing.  With the Office Web Viewer, you don’t have to worry about everyone at the school being able to view a Word document–now all they need is a browser. http://view.officeapps.live.com/op/view.aspx?src=newteach.pbworks.com%2Ff%2Fele%2Bnewsletter.docx

If your document is an Office document and is publicly accessible on the internet, then you are good to go.  Office Web Viewer links are a great alternative to download links because your readers don’t need a special program to view your documents, and they don’t have the interruption of leaving their browser.
