I suggest you ...

create the option to email Form responses to an address designated by the respondent as a receipt.

        Just started using MS Forms today. It seems a few people are just after a notification when someone completes a form.

        There is an option in settings for the form "Email notification of each response". I have ticked this box and get an email notification to let me know a the form has a new response.

        Only the creator of the form gets the notification. There is no option to type a recipient address.

        I am still trying to find a way to get the actual form data in an email.

        At the completion of a form, allow for emailing the form questions and responses to an email address. This could allow for easy intake into a ticketing system rather than building forms inside the ticketing system itself.

        I think this would be an excellent addition to forms - I used it for an invitation last year and my biggest problem was that people couldn't remember if they had responded or not - it would be good to get an acknowledgement email for record.

        this would allow the user to add their email address as well for receiving a copy of the form.

        Good idea. Possible in Flow but very time consuming to create a neatly formatted email. Option in Forms to do this with choice of questions and answers or answers only would be great for students submitting tests to grade.

        As Dani commented a month ago, this option already exists. All done by Flow integration. You can choose email recipients, and even fill the header and body of the email with dynamic data from the form.

        I have tried multiple times to create a flow where form is sent to my email for approval and then sent to another file to be processed. I have yet to have success. All I receive is the link to the original blank form. This functionality would be very beneficial.

        This is the one thing that google forms has that I really need. I get infrequent responses to my forms and would like at least an email notification when someone responds.

        This would be huge! We are trying to move from google forms but not having the option to email individual responses easily is a must, without having to use Flow. It would great to add it to the list under PRINT RESPONSE.

        Please take out Flow from the equation. Forms (probably powered by flow) that can have email response options would be a great feature.

        Will be awesome once we can send responses to respondent. especially valuable for training certificates.

        So close this I'm almost able to finally switch off of google forms finally, but need the option to email responses to specific users.

        While I see from the additional comments that there is a potential workaround using Flow, this is an essential feature that should be included within Forms without the need of using any additional services.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I see people mention Flow can do this, however I do not see it. I would like the email address account that created the form, to have an inbox message whenever someone replies to the form, or, even better, an email with that forms responses compiled into a CSV.

        I just tried this - Flow will let you use one of the Form responses as the TO: email address. Will that do what you want? You would have to type the teacher email address as a response to a question, and use that response as the TO: line. Maybe they just added this.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Flow does not allow you to email responses, it only allows the creator to get an email notification when someone enters a response. You then have to go to the form or spreadsheet to view responses.
