When this will happen

Microsoft will begin rolling this mid-May (previously end of April) and expect to complete in mid-June (previously mid-May)

How this will affect your organization

The forms end user will be able get a quick view on the top text phrases people answered for the open text questions. 

Note: Users may not have word cloud generated for their open text question. In such case, it’s because the service has not found any meaningful results to show at this point, especially when the total number of responses is small. Additional results should generate word cloud.
