How To Add Quiz Or Survey On SharePoint Online Modern Page Using Microsoft Forms

In this article, we will see what Microsoft Forms are and what all you can do with them, and how to integrate with SharePoint modern pages.

Introduction

 
In earlier versions of SharePoint, we had surveys lists and discussion boards; I am sure everyone must have used this a lot in the old days. As SharePoint has evolved from MOSS to Online with modern UI and SPFx, the surveys and discussion boards with classic UI don’t really match up with the branding. So, what options do we have then? For discussions, you should start using Yammer. The plus point of Yammer is that you can easily integrate the Yammer posts in modern page with OOB web part.
 
For Quiz and Survey, let’s see how we can use Microsoft Forms and add it on a modern page of SharePoint.
