I moved a From from My Forms to a Group and the old link has ceases to work.  Is it possible to have both links point to the form?

 

Please Help!!!

Hi @PHagan,

"Will the link to my original (individual) form work after it's been transferred to a group?

Yes, the link pointing to the original form will still work after the form has been moved to a group. The response of a submitter who uses an old link (to the original form) will be captured in the Excel workbook stored on the group SharePoint Online page."

This article appears to state otherwise.  It says the old link will continue to work and push to the same Excel spreadsheet.  This was not the case for me.  I followed the steps here and it created a new link, but it broke the old link (see previous post image).

Hmm, that's strange because I did the same thing a few times over the past month and the same results so I made the assumption it was by design.

In that case, I would personally open a ticket to Microsoft. It could be a bug or the result of a change. If the documentation says it ought to do that then 100% it ought to. I would submit the article alongside the screenshot so the support team don't make the assmuption I did initially.

I hope they resolve it. It would be great if you could let me know what they did because I may be following up with a ticket after you :D

Best, Chris
