Transfer of ownership
Add ability to transfer ownership of form to another person. Useful for when a person leaves the company or changes roles and form ownership needs to transfer to another person.
Dear Forms users,
Forms has shipped the first version of “Transfer of ownership” functionality in two releases to unblock a portion of our users.
1. Move personal form to your group: https://aka.ms/ownershiptransfer-blog
2. Admin to move Forms ownership of your employee: https://aka.ms/admintransfer-blog
This User Voice item will be closed. At the same time, we understand that we have not yet solved the issue 100%, hence we will continue to work on the other parts and encourage you to vote for the other User Voice items. Here is a link to vote for person to person ownership transfer – https://aka.ms/vote-person-to-person-transfer.

Not done. Moved from personal to group, moved to wrong group and now can never move again. Ugh

It is useless if you can move ownership more than once
The ability to move Forms from an individual to a group and back to an individual is a MUST. It is a simple mistake to make during testing Forms as a new product and then getting stuck in a situation that requires that you revert the ownership back to the original owner or transfer to a new individual owner. Case in point...setting up Power Automate to notify a team about forms.
Doesn't work properly if the individual does not own both the form and automation as far as I've been able to test.
Useless if you can't transfer it more than once. Accidentally moved a form into the wrong group with responses I need another group to access and now it's stuck there.

We need to be able to transfer ownership of a Form more than once.
We need a complete solution for this, to transfer form/survey ownership from:
1. Personal to Group
2. Group to Personal
3. Group to Group
4. Personal to Personal
Both personal and admin(s) must have the access to transfer ownership. Transaction of ownership should not affect the form data (responses).
This is not completed. How about the ability to move it from one group to another? Or back to your own, with al the data included?

Also need group to group and group to user transfers, and not requiring a Global Admin, the owner of the for or owner of the group should have this access depending on ownership
This is NOT done as other people are mentioning. Once again you show your complete disregard for delivering complete products.
As of this time, do we have an option to add hyperlink in the description of Microsoft Forms in o365?
How about using href? Anyone tried that?
I assigned a form to the wrong group. Are you saying it's trapped there forever and there's no way to switch it to a different group still?
The "Admin to move Forms ownership of your employee" described in https://aka.ms/admintransfer-blog, requires a global administrator. In a company of 300'000 people, you can imagine that there only a couple such administrators, the accounts are highly protected, and used only when urgently required. Transferring ownership of a personal Form in the case that an employee leaves is really not a task we should call upon a Global Administrator to do. This functionality needs to be delivered as a role we can assign to specific workload administrators, e.g. our SharePoint admins.
Totally NOT DONE
This is not completed. Please add the ability to reverse the transfer if needed !!!
We would really need an option to at least use role based access to edit the forms. This should not be considered complete, so many needed options missing. If you want us to use your forms you need to give us more control as well. I also agree with Stephens ideas
What about moving from one group to another?

Supporting the idea of Stepen from Wednesday, 17th of July 2019, to 100%!
This is an incomplete solution and needs to be re-evaluated.
Capabilities still needed:
1) Transfer forms from user-to-user, not just from user-to-group.
2) Transfer from Group to an individual user. What if a user mistakenly transfers a form? The ability to reverse the transfer is needed.
3) Transfer from Group-to-Group. Again, this is needed, at the very least, to correct mistakes.
4) Transfer functionality should be built into all Forms users, with admins able to allow/disallow users/roles the ability.

this is silly. What if they are on leave? what if they are on maternity leave? what if they are ill for a long period of time???? how can you transfer or add owners to the form. An admin centre is needed just like PowerApps. All 365 services require an admin centre for each service.
