Collaboration is a valuable feature of Forms that can significantly boost productivity. Multiple users can seamlessly work together in the same form, facilitating efficient teamwork and data collection. In this blog, I will show you how to add collaborators to your form/quiz. You can also try to add collaborators from this template. Now let’s dive in!


Share a form/quiz to collaborate

To add a collaborator to your form/quiz, you need to first open a form/quiz. Next, click on the "..." icon located in the upper right corner. From the menu, choose "Collaborate or duplicate," to get a link that you can share with others. (Note: The “Share link to collaborate” option is only available for Office 365 Education and work account. To access it, you must sign in with your school or work account)
