How to close the Survey in Microsoft Forms

Posted on May 5, 2022

I blogged previously about the beautiful and simple application called Microsoft Forms. Forms allow you to create simple surveys and questionnaires and integrate them with the other Microsoft 365 applications like SharePoint, Lists, and others. But what if you ran the survey and no longer need to accept any results? Perhaps you created an intake form to register people for a class/training session and need to close the survey, so users do not submit any more entries. In this article, I will show you how to close the survey in Microsoft Forms.

  2. Uncheck the box next to Accept Responses. You can also provide a custom message recipients will see when they follow the Survey link.close the Survey in Microsoft Forms
