Microsoft forms from Excel

Occasional Contributor

Hey everyone!


I wanted to ask here, is there any possibility to feed a dropdown on a Microsoft form from an EXCEL ?


For example, on the Question in Microsoft forms I want to add a dropdown with the name of every new employee but I want that dropdown to have the names feeded from our recruitment database automatically, is there a way?


Thank you in advance!

Whether this is possible or not is beyond my knowledge because I have dealt with Microsoft Forms very little (hopefully until now).

But that doesn't stop me from sending you some links that might help you (no guarantee).

If this isn't what you need or isn't of interest to you, please just ignore it.
