How this will affect your organization

New Forms start

This feature offers a smoother experience and starting view for accessing and working with Forms.

Users who access forms via Office.com will get this experience first; users accessing forms via forms.office.com will see the experience soon after.

  • For users who access Forms by visiting Office.com, the new Start page experience will begin rolling out in early November. 
  • For users who access Forms via forms.office.com, the new Start page experience will begin rolling out in mid-November.
    Your users will automatically be redirected from forms.office.com to the Office.com page.
