In this chapter, you learned how to create a basic form using Microsoft Forms. Additionally, you were able to build upon the skills acquired in Chapter 12, Using a Database, to save data from Microsoft Forms into a SQL database. In real-world scenarios, you could expand this flow further to generate a confirmation email back to the submitter or use a tool such as Excel or Power BI to sort the data. Depending on the type of data gathered in the form, you could even send this data to Azure Cognitive Services for sentiment analysis.

In the next chapter, we'll look at using Power Automate to gather user input directly.
