We are pleased to introduce better administrator control over Microsoft Forms external and internal sharing. Administrators can now turn off or turn on the ability to send a form, share a form for collaboration, share a form as a template, or share form results with users outside of your organization.

 

To make changes to these settings in the Office 365 Admin center, go to Settings > Services & add-ins > Microsoft Forms. After a setting is turned off, only people in your organization will have access to that option, and only when they sign in.

This feature is under rolling out to all Office365 commercial tenant users soon by February 2018.

Is this feature (external sharing of Microsoft Forms) rolled out to all customers ?

Microsoft

@Srikanth Tangedipalli, external sharing has been available in commercial and education Office 365 tenants for a while, and is now rolling to government tenants.  Unless you are an administrator, you will not have access to these settings, though ...

Does this take a long time before the setting is reflected on the end user side? I checked "Send and Collect Responses" under External Sharing in the Admin portal a few days ago but my end users (including me) still don't see the option to share their Forms with anyone but external users (in fact, under Share, it says "Only people in my organization can respond."  Is there another step I am missing?  We are a GCC tenant so maybe it isn't fully implemented yet, even though the options are there in the Admin portal?

Will activating internal sharing only for forms remove any existing external sharing that is already in place?

We support a GCC tenant as well and are finding that with all the appropriate admin settings set, we still don't have access to allow external sharing in the forms themselves. Can we get an update here if this is still a known issue and what kind of time frame we should expect?
