Message Summary

We’re using Forms intelligence to provide new features for meeting presenters who create polls as part of Microsoft Teams meetings, as announced in MC225995 (November 2020).

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap IDs 7949379494, and 79495.

When will this happen

We will begin rolling this out in late March and expect to complete rollout by late April.

How this will affect your organization

Using the same AI features that have been in Forms since 2018, we’re minimizing the time and effort required to create polls for Teams meetings. They appear in the Polls tab of the meeting.

Forms can make suggestions to meeting presenters such as:

  • Specific polls based upon the title of the meeting (Roadmap ID 79493)
  • Specific polls based upon those that they have previously created (Roadmap ID 79494)
  • Suggested multiple-choice answers based on new poll questions (Roadmap ID 79495)

Forms prompts the meeting presenter with multiple choice answers for a new poll question.  

Suggesting answers

After the meeting, meeting presenters can evaluate responses in the meeting tab; export responses to an Excel workbook; or review responses on the web in the Forms app. 

What you need to do to prepare

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
