Introducing a new question type, File Upload
You asked, we listened. This important new feature allows form designers to choose a new question type, File Upload, which enables respondents to attach files as part of their response. All files can be accessed in both SharePoint and OneDrive for Business.
With File Upload, form creators can set the limit on number and size of files, in addition to file types. This feature is in roll-out.
Engage respondents with video using new Stream video support
Microsoft Forms now allows designers to insert a Stream video into the form. In addition to previously supported YouTube URLs, Stream video enables users to leverage internal content.
Immersive Reader empowers a more inclusive experience for all students
[EDU only] Immersive reader is a full screen reading experience to increase readability of content in Microsoft Forms desktop/mobile view. The addition of immersive reader functionality enhances Forms accessibility within the classroom.
Unified Auditing enhances visibility into compliance actions
Auditing is a feature within the Security & Compliance center which allows an admin or compliance officer to find if a user/admin performed specific actions--i.e. viewed a specific Form, deleted a Form from their system, changed important Forms settings, etc. The Security and Compliance center allows admins to search across the entire unified audit log spanning many O365 products. The admin or compliance officer can restrict their searches to specific workloads (Ex. Forms), specific activities within that workload (Ex. Create Form), specific date ranges, and specific users to filter results.
