We recently release a new feature to address one of the top feedback items on User Voice - Authenticated + anonymous + one response per person.

 UserVoice - Auth.png

 

In the “Settings” pane of Forms, you can now enable “One response per person” without checking “Record name.” This allows you to create an anonymous internal survey, limiting a single response for each person.

 

Settings.png

 

How does the feature work?

When people in your organization or school sign in and submit their responses, Forms will only log a hash key based on their Office 365 accounts, but not record their names or email addresses.

 

How about adding the same feature for external surveys outside of my organization?

We have this item on our list of future feature improvements.

 

Want to share your feedback?

We’d love to hear from you! Let us know what you think via this survey.

Nice feature, thank you!

Nice, and I'm waiting the one response per person on outside of my organization.
for collect surveys from Guests

This is a very helpful new feature

Occasional Visitor

I am too waiting to gather email-id of people who are filling the Survey externally. How can the feature be just anonymous when people are ready to share email-id.

While we send a Survey to person outside my organization, I would like to know which customer posted what. Otherwise how can I take action ?

Hopefully, Microsoft prioritizes this feature! Google already has it in its forms from long.

Best regards,

Rishi

 @Rishi JAIN Thanks a lot for your feedback! We have put it into Microsoft Forms feature backlog already. You can also go to User Voice to vote this idea:)

How can responders verify that the form they are filling in is set to have anonymous responses and the Form owner cannot access their name or id?

New Contributor
Was this feature dropped? I'm not seeing it in the main forms settings or in the settings for any particular form or quiz (including a new form I just tried to create).
Occasional Visitor

Excellent. I can't wait for the "same feature for external surveys outside of my organization".

It will be extremely useful. As an example, in my department we have a tradition of electing our coordinators. As it's not a general rule in the university, it isn't supported by the organization as a whole - and that's why we can't use our corporate usernames. So, we spend several days registering votes in paper (due to different schedules, day/night/weekend teams, etc).

This feature will be a welcome revolution in our micro-scale-democracy! :)

Occasional Visitor

Can we create a survey with recipients of Outside the organization and the recipient can only do the survey once?

Occasional Visitor

The inability to create forms to external guests is a massive failure.

 

I want to receive data for service requests from my clients, but the only way to allow that through this system is to give them all a seat on our Microsoft package. 

 

Google Forms allows you to record anything, if the user consents to give data that is their right, does Microsoft have their own version of GDPR or something? Com-eon Microsoft I'm not impressed.

 

What's the point of having such an intricate system which returns every external person as anonymous. Useless. How am I supposed to know who submitted the request? I need to authorize the request via encryption to make sure sure the requester is valid.

 

SORT THIS OUT

 

 

@AndrewatmyEHCP I use Google Forms but I do not see a way to set the Form such as that only one response can be submitted but also not require a sign-in. Is the true issue that MS Forms doesn't allow authentication with personal Microsoft accounts, and not just just accounts in the tenant?
Occasional Visitor

@Kevin Crossman Hi Kevin, Google Forms allows the collection of email addresses from anybody, Microsoft Forms blocks any personal data from people outside your organisation and marks it as "anonymous" which is infuriatingly annoying.

 

There is no way to disable this through the admin portal.

 

The only problem is, Google forms looks very unprofessional in comparison to Microsoft Forms. I hope Microsoft add a function to disable the personal data blocker.  If people are willing to consent to provide you with their information that is their choice, not Microsoft's. all this data protection Malarchy is stupid at this level. I just want Joe bloggs to send me a request saying "I want this", and to be able to identify the request is from Joe bloggs. It's no different from an email or a text message.
