Working with Microsoft Forms

Gathering and processing feedback from users or customers is an important part of business operations. Microsoft Forms is a survey tool that can be used to capture that information, both with fixed questions and free-form text entry options.

In this chapter, we're going to use some of the concepts we've already learned about conditions (Chapter 8, Working with Conditions) and adding content to a database (Chapter 12, Using a Database) to create flows based on input from Microsoft Forms. Specifically, we'll look at the following topics:

  • Understanding the Forms connector triggers and actions
  • Creating a basic form
  • Processing a form with Power Automate

When you finish this chapter, you'll have an understanding of how you can connect Forms and SQL with Power Automate.

Let's dig in!
