People sometimes wish to review and change their form or quiz responses after submission, even days later. We’re happy to share that you can now review and edit responses when needed.

 

  • First, save your response

To save your response, ensure that the form creator has selected "Allow respondents to save their responses" option in the Forms settings.

Once the setting is enabled, and you submit a form, you will have the option to save your response from the thank you page.

The response will be saved in “Filled forms” in Microsoft Forms.

As long as the form is open, you have the flexibility to revisit the form at any time to edit your answers. However, edits cannot be made once a form has been closed or deleted.

FAQ

 

Where is the data saved?

As with all forms, the response data will be stored in the form creator’s repository only. Respondents can only view their own and cannot make any changes unless the form creator allows them to edit their response. If the form or the response is removed, the respondent will no longer have access to the response.

 

What’s the limitation of the feature?

Updating a response do not trigger a Power Automate flow. This capability will be enabled soon.

 

We hope you find these new features helpful! We will continue working on enabling more options with Microsoft Forms. Let us know if you have questions or if there’s anything else we can help you with!
