What happens to a form if a person leaves the organization and was the only owner? Does that form disappear? Does it get deleted?

Hi @JohnnyGeng 

 

All account-related data will be deleted 30 days after a user account has been deleted from your tenant (Azure AD).

 

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/microsoft-forms-and-user-accounts-47dec490-d437-4f27-8335-f...

 

I'd suggest sharing the forms of that user and then making your own copy so it stays in your account to avoid deletion.

 

Hope that helps?

 

Cheers

Damien

Thanks Damien! Exactly the source for which I was looking! I always make a copy. Just needed a source to which to point some naysayers!

 

Thank you again!
