Allow the full form to be sent via email. 50%+ higher response rates when the survey is in the email body, saving respondents a click.
Include the survey/form within the body of an email message in addition to the link to the survey. Response rates are higher when participants can respond from within the body of an email message.
Forms - Quick Poll add-in in outlook do this with one question and if the user is not office 365 compatible then can click to see the survey on web page to fill it.

This will really help for response as many people will respond if it is easy click in email instead of opening another link and respond

We are able to achieve this using MS Flow that is triggered whenever a response is submitted it sends the form responses in an email that you can format however you want. You could also tie this into your approval and workflow process.
Agree, this would be very useful for automation tasks. We can use it for a simple service desk ticket submission, so people raise an issue and you get the full issue via email. That can be automated into other ticketing systems.
This is what I assumed could be done as I have just created my first one. Agree with Kelly for external "quizzes" but for internal would be all good
I support this idea. Would like to see the submitted form contents in the email body. That way we can read what was submitted and click on the link for further information. In my specific case, that would suit me so i can then create a rule to forward a specific email to necessary stakeholders for reading so they generally recieve it once the supervisor has submitted their report

I want to send a form as actionable message by email.
for more easy, more quick response.
Actionable Message can use in Outlook 2016, Outlook Web.
That can use more easy, more quick operation.
Like Microsoft Flow's approval can approve/reject operation by Actionable Message.
I hope to use Microsoft Forms as Actionable message.

I'm not a MS rep, but here's my 2-cents:
Having scripts execute from within an email body is typically frowned upon from an IT security standpoint. It can leave your organization wide-open for malicious attacks. To compound that, most IT groups will block any email containing scripts or executables. To compound that even further, government entities (.mil) will typically only allow text based email - usually blocking any markup languages like HTML. So by the time your email form gets there, it'll probably not look like what you intended, and the user will most likely will not be able to return the survey back to you in an automated fashion.
So although you'll get 50% higher response rates from users that can get the survey, your overall user penetration rate will drop dramatically.
Also curious - is your 50% higher response statistic based on a specific study or just anecdotal observations?
