Hi @tickedpinkies , as was discussed in the Flow group this isn't possible at the moment with Forms because there is no way to send anything other than a blank survey/form. There is a uservoice request for pre-populating data at https://microsoftforms.uservoice.com/forums/386451-welcome-to-microsoft-forms-suggestion-box/suggest...

 

I think, as Scott Shearer suggested, that you need to look at using a SharePoint list and sending an email via Flow based on the columns in that list. That's the way we do it (involving PowerApps as well) every 3 months to confirm IT Assets that each member of staff holds.

Hello @RobElliott 

 

Can you share the template you use for data collection. I am working on something similar and just getting started with Flows

Still no way to prefill a MS form using another Forms?
