Allow authenticated but anonymous responses with one response per person

Forms should allow you to check the settings boxes for "record name" and "one response per person" independently. For things like voting we only want one vote, we want people to login to vote, but we do not want to see their name. Forms can store voting history to enforce single responses but should not need to display it to the Form owner.

    In the “Settings” pane of Forms, you can now enable “One response per person” without checking “Record name.” This allows you to create an anonymous internal survey, limiting a single response for each person.

        Its not done. We need one response per person for external forms, not just internal.

        The base solution is to ADD EXTERNAL USER INVITATION (specific URL). Each inviation can be responded only once. So I could send the quiz to one person multiple times but he/she can respond only once to each invitation.

        You don’t have permission to view this form
        Create my own form

        This is what I get when I try to open the link.

        It would be super helpful if you enable anonymous access to the above mentioned survey :-)
        That will a) enable us to respond to it (now we're just getting access denied when clicking the link) and b) will make it more obvious to you what we mean by "allow only one response per person when anonymous access is enabled"...

        Microsoft Form - Should allow capability to restrict to one response per person without recording name. Currently one response is only enable when we check record name of the person.

        Almost one year, 470 votes, but still no response from Microsoft for such a basic feature? This app could be of so much more use for thousands of schools an companies if you guys would simply allow "anonymous responses AND one response per person" at the same time!

        To be able to have one response per person for third party survey participant; at least may be Microsoft Forms have the capability to integrate/linked authentication from third party authenticator such as: MS Account / gmail / Facebook / Linked in other than Microsoft Work account.

        There is no point using the survey tool for external polling if you can't limit the survey to one response per person. Unless this is sorted I won't use it as the data collected can not be trusted.

        Yes, I vote for this feature! We send anonymous surveys out to groups of people in our organization every month. We need to keep the surveys anonymous but we really need a list of the people who have completed the survey. So if Forms can generate a list of people's names who take the surveys(without linking them to the survey data which would defeat the purpose of their anonymity), that would be extremely helpful.
