New field type: Person lookup
It would be very useful to be able to have a lookup field for looking up persons in the organization. Similar to the Person field type in Sharepoint.
yes please ..this is a must to have field.
100% this is a must to be able able to do a person look up internally !!!
What Diana said below, there are 3 or 4 of these out here all with a few hundred votes. While many might be duplicate votes, many may not be. There are tons of uses for this type of field I am honestly shocked it wasn't though of by a dev.

Comm on Microsoft. This has been available on other platforms (EG Domino) for 25 years. Add the functionality and limit to internal users only. Pretty please!
Yes, please!!! I have anonymous forms, but have a question where they can enter their name if they want to be contacted. Being able to search the directory to add their account name and contact information would be super helpful. We can do this as a connector in PowerApps, but I NEED it in Forms!

looks like there are several threads for the same field going back a couple of years......there is obviously a need, and certainly there has been time.....why isn't this done yet?
Every form we have ever made in Microsoft Forms has required a single or multiple person list of people from Active Directory. Having to make this a free from text field has limited our ability to use this tool and force us back to either SharePoint Lists or PowerApps only.
Please provide a status at least on whether this is being considered.
can you consolidate the votes from 2 other same requests and consider this for implementation?
+1 would be very handy!
Totally agree! It would be extremely useful, especially with Microsoft Flows/Power Automation.
this would be perfect since handlingof complex excel files and even long sharepoint lists can start with a simple form
Yes! Please add this!!
Yes, the ability to type/search in a dropdown of people from our organization would be great! it would remove data quality issues like
This would be fantastic!
As Marc commented, this is ridiculously obvious functionality. Let's get'r done.
MS, you guys have been given this idea over 2 years now... at least. PLEASE!!! drop what you're doing and get this ball rolling asap. this is vital

Definitely need a lookup field to retrieve users from organization. If the user does not type the name of the person correctly in Forms, the Flow I have that is connected to a Person or Group field in SharePoint will fail. I also cannot add all the users in a single text field within Forms. This will make it difficult to manage adding all the possible users that may need to be linked to a single line of text field in Forms.
Hope this is resolved quickly since some of the solutions I am exploring within my organization and customers is the entire Office suite not just bits and pieces.
If Dynamics 365 has lookups and SharePoint has lookups and PowerApps has lookups, it only makes sense for Forms to have lookups.
This is called consistency!!!
This is a must-have for Forms to be useful as actual forms. Single and multiple selections of AAD accounts/emails, please.
