It acts like a decision-making assistant that can suggest ways to improve your survey design and help you make smart decisions based on the data you collect.

Suggest survey content

Copilot in Forms can generate a complete survey based on your purpose and objective, including the survey title, survey description, questions, and options, all in the appropriate form-like format and right tone for that purpose. 

You can choose to keep all or some of the questions that Copilot generates. If you do, Copilot in Forms will convert the selected content into the Forms canvas, allowing you to continue editing the survey at any time.

For example, if you enter “Create an employee feedback survey for the HR department to assess employees' job satisfaction and find areas for improvement”, Copilot in Forms can generate the relevant title for this topic, a survey description to explain the purpose of it, a list of open-ended and choice questions to understand employee’s satisfaction on company, managers, colleagues, work-life-balance, benefits and any areas to improve further.

Suggest common practice

Copilot in Forms can suggest high-quality surveys for common topics based on your input. For example, if you enter "customer experience research," "event feedback survey," or "volunteer registration form," Copilot in Forms will generate a complete survey with around 5 to 15 commonly used questions and answers related to that topic. These questions will be in the appropriate question types.

For instance, if you choose "customer experience research," Copilot in Forms will ask rating questions about the customer's experience, willingness to purchase again, choice questions about customer expectations, and open-ended questions about how the product can be improved in the future.

Visualize survey style

Once you confirm the survey content, Copilot in Forms will suggest a list of themes with predefined backgrounds and formats related to your survey's intent. You can choose from these themes to polish the visual appearance of your survey and enhance audience engagement. You can also customize the visuals further by selecting from a range of AI themes.

For example, if your survey is about customer feedback, such as a "customer feedback survey," Copilot in Forms will suggest themes that can help your audience understand the topic when they open the survey and see the background. This can make your survey more visually appealing and engaging for respondents.
