How to use the Microsoft Forms bot in Microsoft Teams
Updated: May 2, 2022
Something I really love about working in a bigger company is the fact that your colleagues can challenge your opinions and teach you new things. A couple of weeks ago a colleague of mine said “Amanda we should really try Forms to ask quick questions in our team” – I said no haha. But this week he showed me, and I have to admit myself defeated, it’s great.
In this blog post I will show you how you can use the Microsoft Forms bot to send a quick poll in a team in Microsoft Teams.
1. Open the team where you want to ask the question, start a new conversation and write @
2. Click Get bots (this might differ dependent on tenant settings). A list of all available bots will open
3. Click on Forms, Forms is now added as a bot in the team
4. To use it type @forms in the conversation
5. To create a new poll with the bot you write:
@Forms Here's a little question for you? Option 1, Option 2, Option 3
To “end” your question you add a question mark. You can add up to 6 different answers divided by a comma.
6. And voila a new poll your team members can answer!
Perfect for quick polls in a team 😊
