Tip:  Learn more about Microsoft Forms or get started right away and create a survey, quiz, or poll. Want more advanced branding, question types, and data analysis? Try Dynamics 365 Customer Voice.

You can easily delete a form, recover a deleted form, or permanently delete a form.

Delete a form

  1. Go to Microsoft Forms, sign in with your Microsoft 365 work or school account or Microsoft personal account (Hotmail, Live, or Outlook.com).

    Note: You can also log in to Office.com, look for the Microsoft 365 icons on the left, and then select Forms.

  2. Scroll down to the bottom of your page and select All My Forms.

    Link to All My Forms for Microsoft forms on Office.com

  3. On the All forms tab, find the form you want to delete. Select More options in the upper right corner of its tile, and then choose Delete.

    Tip: If you don't see form tiles, you might be in "list view" instead of "tile view." To delete a form within "list view," hover to the right of the form, select More options, and then select Delete.

    Note: Once in the recycle bin, a form will remain there indefinitely unless you intentionally delete it from the recycle bin as well.

    Tip: If you've signed in with a Microsoft 365 work or school account, you'll also see a Move option, which allows you to transfer ownership of your form. Learn more.

Recover a deleted form

  1. Go to the Deleted forms tab. This tab serves as your recycle bin.

    Note: Each Forms user can create up to 200 single forms, which include those on the Deleted forms tab. (For example, 150 forms in the Microsoft Forms portal + 50 forms on the Deleted forms tab = 200 forms.) If you have both a Forms account and Dynamics 365 Customer Voice (formerly Microsoft Forms Pro) account, your 200 forms limit spans both accounts.

  2. On the form you want to delete, select More options in the lower right corner of the form tile, and then click Restore.

    Tip: If you don't see form tiles, you might be in "list view" instead of "tile view." To restore a form within "list view," hover to the right of the form, select More options, and then select Restore.

  3. To see your recovered form, go to your All forms tab.

Permanently delete a form

  1. Go to the Deleted forms tab.

  2. On the form you want to delete, select More options in the lower right corner of the form tile, and then select Delete.

    Note: If you delete a form from the Deleted forms tab, the form and all of its responses are permanently deleted. You won't be able to bulk delete forms. Instead, you'll need to delete forms, one by one, in order to permanently remove all forms from the Deleted forms tab.

Up to 1,000 for paid accounts

The form limit includes those in the re-cycle bin. (For example, 350 active forms in the Microsoft Forms portal + 50 forms in the recycle bin = 400 forms.)

When a respondent completes a form and submits it, this counts as one response (no matter how many questions are on the form). For example, if a form contains 100 questions and all of the questions are answered by exactly 12 respondents, the form will count as having received 12 responses.
 

Important: The guideline "One response per person" is only enforced within a continuous set of 50,000 responses and is not guaranteed for a full data set when there are more than 50,000 responses.
