Microsoft Forms

Microsoft Forms is a simple, lightweight app that lets you easily create surveys, quizzes, registration forms, and polls. When you create a quiz or form, you can invite others to respond to it using any web browser, even on mobile devices. As results are submitted, you can use built-in analytics to evaluate responses. Form data, such as quiz results, can be easily exported to Excel for additional analysis or grading.

It will be made available to you by the end of February. To get started now, visit https://forms.office.com.

Microsoft OneDrive for Business Hover Card

The File Hover Card quickly displays file access statistics that help you gain valuable insights into who in your organization has accessed Office files that you've shared. In OneDrive for Business, when hovering over a file you'll be able to see total views, the number of colleagues who've viewed, and the list of colleagues who've viewed.

In SharePoint Online document and page libraries, you'll be able to see the number of views and number of colleagues who've viewed files and pages. Another aspect of this feature allows file owners the ability to see if their colleagues have viewed their files. This feature is only available when files are stored in OneDrive for Business.

This feature will be available by the end of February 2018.
