ability to e-mail user's responses back them

ability to e-mail user's responses back them, of course the user has to put the e-mail as on of the questions. Also a way to put this at the end of form. "A copy of your responses will be emailed to the address you provided." MICROSOFT FORMS MUST be better than Google forms/surveys! Google forms has that option. See example.

        I would like our forms to email individuals assigned to dealing with the responses. The IT department tend to set these up on behalf of other users. Its the other users that need the response feedback and not just the individual that filled the form in. This would streamline our GDPR breach reporting interface, where hopefully teams can then respond and report to the ico within the 72 hour time period.

        Cuando una persona responde a tu cuestionario a través de Forms, que la aplicación se capaz de enviar un mensaje automático de vuelta. Por ejemplo, de agradecimiento por haber contestado a la encuesta. Que este mensaje sea modulable por la persona que crea la encuesta.

        This is important, and is why Google forms is still used in some cases.

        Without the ability to do this, Microsoft Forms does not work for our needs. My IT department and I have both been unable to create a flow to perform this necessary function as well.

        We would like to be able to send an email to the sender of the form acknowledging that we have receive their form.
        The same as google form or webinars software

        We would love for the submitter to be emailed a copy of the form or some kind of confirmation it has been received.

        We put out a new form 6-8 times per year, and no two are alike; therefore each form's email setup is different, too. We're getting complaints about the difficulty to create the emails in Flow (for one, why are the questions in alphabetical order?) AND about reading the emails generated because the formatting is so difficult.

        If anyone has a workaround that would work for any form, please, please post!

        The user needs to have a copy of what they submitted. Not just the responses. If this exact thing can be done simply in Flow, please post instructions.

        I've pretty Office and 365 savvy and I cannot figure out how to get an automated printout of this form through Microsoft Flow.

        Regarding @Erin's comment, how on earth do I format the questions so that they show up?

        Do I have to create an action step for each answer to the form?

        All-in-all it would be REALLY helpful to be able to more easily get the person's responses, for record keeping for the creator of the form and entrant of the form.

      • Erin Corrigan commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please please please! It's WAY too complicated in Flows, especially for long forms -- you have to manually add every response variable (and they're not even in the same order in which they appear on the forms!) AND you have to retype every question into the body of the email.

        Hi, I would suggest that you request their email and use flow to send an email back to them.

      • Shawn Line commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        YES
        This is especially important in the way i'm using them becuase it want them to see their responses and be able to tchek them

        Would also appreciate the user having the ability to edit and resubmit their response!

        I think this is a great idea. We are exploring using Forms for skills self-assessment. A part of that process is reviewing how a person self assesses with their manager. Automating the ability to review the individuals results via email will really simplify this process.
