MC240161 – Updated March 17, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
We are introducing a change in public groups that affects Microsoft Forms users.
- Timing: mid-March through mid-April (previously late March).
- Roll-out: tenant level
- Action: review and assess
How this affects your organization
Currently, all users in an organization can access a shared form in a public group (Microsoft Office 365 Group marked as public). All users can edit the form and view response data without first joining the public group.
After this change, users will need to join and become a member of a public group in order to access shared forms within the group.
What you need to do to prepare
You may consider updating your training and documentation, as appropriate.
