This might be stupid but my problem is that whenever I add a new Forms tab and create a form it is always in the edit mode for everyone. So my team members can not answer to the questions unless they click the preview button... I am sure there has to be a way to "disable" the edit mode.

Hi Tomi,

 

There are a few things that may help.

 

1.) Share a link with the team which will direct them to the form in their browser

2.) Add a second Forms tab in Teams and when creating that second Forms tab instead of selecting 'Create a Shared Form' select 'Add an Existing Form' which will not be in edit mode

Best, Chris

Thank you for the advice Christopher. I have now created a second tab and it works. This is pretty silly and confusing for the users though. I hope there is a "fix" coming for this at some point.

Thanks Tomi, glad it worked,

 

You could put the editable version in another channel - away from the main channel users are using if you want to avoid confusion. You could also flag this with Teams User Voice if you want to see an improvement on it

As said, hope it helps. If it has, please can you set the response above with a like or as the best response. Feel free to reach out if you have any more questions!

 

Best, Chris
