Share the form with specific people
Share the form with specific people.
Especially in corporate setting there is usually a need to send the survey/quiz to specific people instead of everyone in organization. There should be a way to do that.
There should be 3 categories for Sharing :
Specific People can Respond
Specific People (Teams) can view only
All in Organisation can View only.
security is lacking in MS Forms. please add it
Pull the finger our and add this functionality

In particular, I think when I posted this, I wanted to share the data with a co-worker without having to export it and email it every single time.
It would also be nice to share an "edit link", so that the coworker can also edit the input data or the formatting.

I should be able to share a form with individuals or any office 365 or azure ad security group.
Sharing contents of Office 365 should be managed by security groups on Azure AD.
Merging threads with similar requests. These cover sharing to specific email addresses for response side and/or sharing to specific email addresses for collaboration/data analysis side.
So how can I share the form with specific colleagues in another department (albeit in the same organization), who needs to be able to edit the form?
It should be just as easy to share and collaborate in Forms, as it is with Word, PowerPoint, Excel & OneNote etc. Nobody want a link for ALL in the organisation. Please make it possible to share and collaborate on a form with only specific people.
Also, it would be practical that the responses are saved as an Excel file in my OneDrive, and then I could share the results as a Excel file with other specific people (that I do not want to give access to the form itself)
Earlier I could share a form with one or two colleagues so we could edit it and see responses. Now that option isnt there. Need an option to share with limited number of people.
Share results only with specific people or groups, not only "anyone with the link"
At this moment it's only possible to share results with the option "anyone with the link". That means there's no authentication required, if someone shares the link outside the organization, the Forms results are accessable for everyone.
Prefered way is that there is an option to share the results with specific people or groups. In the sameway as you share documents in SharePoint Online for example.

In a corporate setting we need the ability to send forms that contain possibly sensitive data to external users that we have selected.
The two current options
-Share with internal org
-Allow anonymous access
Do not fit this need, eliminating Forms as an option.
Seriously, why would MS make sharing or allow collaboration to organization-wide, and not allow more granular control? makes no sense, as anyone who has the link can then mess around with the responses, etc.

Also agree. Even for a simple form you need someone to be able to take over and monitor responses if you are not available.
We have a shared email service account but the ownership defaults to me personally even if I login under the shared email address. I can't share responses with the other person for them to action in my absence.

We would love to use Microsoft Forms at our institution, but we really need the ability to limit responses to a specific group of people within our organization instead of allowing everyone in our organization to respond.
A specific use case for us is voting. We want to create voting polls for our students, each educational department would have their own poll and each poll should only be answered by those students within that department. Using the current available sharing mechanism in Forms, we can't accomplish this. If Forms worked like OneDrive sharing (share with specific people) it could work for us.

Share items with specific users/groups
現在、"回答の送信と収集" "テンプレートとして共有" "共有して共同作業する" 機能にて、特定のユーザーに制限して共有する機能がない。
In Send and collect responses, Share as a template, Share to collaborate, sharing with specific user is unavailable option. Allow sharing items with specific users/groups so that we can prevent sharing with unwanted users.
Thank you for your consideration.

I 100% agree! I would like to share with individuals via their specific email address, not via a link that could possibly be shared by many. Why can't it be shared like a Word Document (person-specific, not by anyone with the link). And when responses come in from submissions, I would like to share the "live" up-to-date spreadsheet with certain people, not have to download the spreadsheet and send it to them. What if other responses comes in after the share? This isn't good; it isn't functional. And the technological ability to share a live spreadsheet linked to a form-submission does already exists. Please make the fix.
Add an option to share Form with specific people only within an organisation
