Forms not shown in PowerPoint after selecting Insert

Steel Contributor

When I select the Forms option from the Insert tab in PowerPoint, it opens the Forms app but shows none of my forms or options to add new.  I thought this might be an O365 sign in issues so logged into Forms in IE and Edge but this didn't make a difference.

I saw a previous question on the licence you need to do this and the answer was that Commercial included Enterprise licences which is what I am using.

Any ideas on what Setup I am missing? PowerPoint version is 1811 click to run.

Ever figure this out? I have the exact same issue. Blank grey screen on right after clicking the forms add in. Oddly it seems to be network or GPO related, as it works from a home computer. I checked our firewall and IPS and nothing is being blocked, so not sure why it doesnt work from our corporate LAN.

I also have this issue. Has anyone found a solution yet?

@Alan Marshall same issue here, did you manage to solve this ? 

Same issue here.  I did determine that it is related to our content filter.  If I disable the service on my laptop for the content filter it works.  Not an option at a school though as we have to filter Internet traffic by law.

We are working on it, it appears that our VPN solution is blocking the connector. If we are off corporate network this works without issue.
