M365 Changelog: (Updated) Forms: Split sending and sharing entry point

MC335638 – Updated May 05, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Microsoft is making it easier to share a Form with a collaborator or with respondents by clearly separating out the sharing process.

This is a follow up to MC24233. Based on feedback, Microsoft made the decision to make additional changes before it proceeded with the full rollout. Microsoft is now ready to move forward and apologize for any inconvenience. Thank you for your feedback and patience.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 79450

When this will happen:

This rollout will begin in late February and Microsoft expects the rollout to be completed by late May (previously late April).

How this will affect your organization:

Previously, sharing a Microsoft Form with respondents and with collaborators was initiated from the same share button.   

This update will make it so that the the button for sharing the Form with a collaborator will be separate from where you would initiate sending the Form to respondents.
