Hello,

 

Can you reply to a question in Microsoft Forms by adding a photo/ taking a picture?

 

Thank you

Hi @DanAllenM3 you'd need to use Power Automate to 1) save the form response to a SharePoint list, 2) get a photo from a SharePoint asset library based the answer selected in the form and then 3) send the email back to the responder with the photo.

Hi @RobElliott 

 

Sorry I meant can Forms be set up so the responder replies with a photo as their answer.

 

EG

Question: Please take a photo of the front of your vehicle

Answer: Responder takes photo of vehicle

 

Thank you

Hi @DanAllenM3 

 

You could use File upload to get the responder to submit a photo (or other type of file). Note it does not work with the Anyone with with the link can respond.

You can find the option in + Add new > Drop down arrow > File upload

Hopefully that will do the trick for your needs.

 

Cheers and best wishes

Damien

@DanAllenM3 apologies, I misunderstood. In which case @Damien Rosario 's answer is the one you need.

Hi, when I try to do this the file upload option isn’t able to be clicked. Any idea why?

@hjacklin17 if you've got your form set to "Anyone with a link can respond" then the file upload option is not available. It is only available if the form only allows people in the organisation to respond.
