Active users

Transferring ownership of a Microsoft Form can be done by moving the form to a Microsoft 365 Group. Here are the steps:

  1. Go to My forms.
  2. Click on More form actions (…) on the top right corner of the form you want to transfer1.
  3. Select Move, and then select the group you want to transfer to1.
  4. Confirm the move1.

After the transfer completes, the moved form is still active, and all members of your group also become “owners” and have full editing capabilities. The responses will be stored in a new folder in the group’s document library.

Please note that the ownership of a form can be transferred from an individual to a group, but not the other way around. You can only transfer ownership of a form to a group you belong to if you’re the original owner of that form.
