Introducing a change in access behavior for public groups in Microsoft Forms

Reference ID: MC240161

MC240161 – We are introducing a change in public groups that affects Microsoft Forms users.

Key points

  • Timing: mid- through late March 2021.
  • 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.
