Text formatting (bold, italic, underline) available in Microsoft Forms

Reference ID: MC228897

MC228897 – Updated February 19, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Text formatting (bold, italics, and underline) is coming to Microsoft Forms to help survey and quiz designers differentiate and emphasize content.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 68894.

When this will happen

  • We will begin rolling out to production tenants in later February and expect to be complete in March (previously early February).
  • We will begin rolling out to government tenants in later March February (previously early February) and expect to be complete in April (previously early March).

How this will affect your organization

Consistent with Office 365 products, users can format text by using either a floating tool bar or keyboard shortcuts.

In the editing canvas of the form, designers can use the text format toolbar inline whenever they are composing text content.

What you need to do to prepare

This Is a native feature, enabled by default.

You might want to notify your users about this new capability and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
