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.
Dear Microsoft Forms customer,
We are working on email receipt v2 recently. Based on your comments, we consider to iterate this feature which can match your requirements.
This survey is to understand your needs on response receipt in Forms. We really appreciate you could take 1-2 minutes to fill the survey. Here is the link: https://aka.ms/emailreceiptv2

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.
Ditto on being able to edit and resubmit responses!

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.

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.
Please! Add this option.

Hi, I would suggest that you request their email and use flow to send an email back to them.
Why not set this up in Microsoft Flow
Shawn Line commented
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
Agree, we need this function. Flow can do this but it's not for eveyone.
Would also appreciate the user having the ability to edit and resubmit their response!

This is not needed inside of Forms. Use Flow or Logic Apps to make this happen.
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.
we probably need vote to get their attention :)
I agree. So far I have found Google Forms to be much more intuitive than Microsoft Forms, which I am disappointed by.
this would allow the user to add their email address as well for receiving a copy of the form.
This is really important and its going to create a nice automation process otherwise the moderator who manage the form has to forward the form report to each persons department who submit the form.
Good idea. Possible in Flow but very time consuming to create a neatly formatted email. Option in Forms to do this with choice of questions and answers or answers only would be great for students submitting tests to grade.
