Does anyone know how to set up Microsoft forms so that when a form is completed the notification gets sent out to multiple recipients or a distribution list?

@MichelleArellano you'd need to do this with a flow in Power Automate. With that you can send out the responses the user made to each question to any number of recipients by email, store the response in a SharePoint list (we ALWAYS do this at my company), send the responder a "thank you" confirmation message with their answers (again we always do this as it shows we have received it and are working on it). You just can't do all this within Forms itself. Let me know if you'd like screenshots of how a flow flow to do this is constructed.
