MSTeams Tip: Forms on the fly survey

Microsoft Teams continues to get new functionality and I saw a nice addition just the other day.  The ability to quickly create a survey in a channel conversation without leaving the app or even adding Forms as a new tab makes collaboration with your team more seamless.

How does it work?

To create a survey on the fly in a channel conversation, simply “at mention” Forms.  As you begin typing, Forms will be suggested.

After tagging Forms, you can create your survey by typing the question, followed by a comma separated list of options as the example below:

The survey will be added along with a list of the results.

At this time, you are only able to tag Forms in a Team channel, but I would like to see the ability to use the same functionality in private chat as well.  If you are interested in the same, feel free to vote up the UserVoice request.
