    Notes: 

    • If you use your work or school account to share your form as a template with someone using a personal Microsoft (Hotmail, Live, or Outlook.com) account, the collect response setting to the duplicated form will reset. For personal Microsoft accounts, the setting will reset to one option, which is, Anyone can respond.

    • If you use your personal Microsoft (Hotmail, Live, or Outlook.com) account to share your form as a template with someone using their work or school account, the collect response setting to the duplicated form will reset. For work or school accounts, the setting will reset to two options, which are, Anyone can respond and Only people in my organization can respond.

When your recipient clicks or taps on the link, they'll be able to duplicate your form and use it as their own. Your form serves as a template from which your recipient can then customize as desired.

When you share a quiz or form as a template, only the content of it is duplicated. No existing response data is carried over to the new quiz or form when someone else duplicates it.
