View and Share Microsoft Forms Results

Microsoft Forms includes rich, real-time analytics that provides a summary and individual results for your forms. You can view a graphical snapshot of responses to get an overview of results or export to Excel for further analysis. You can also view individual respondents’ data, to drill down into each response further.
