Word Clouds in Microsoft Forms

Microsoft Forms is a great tool for getting feedback on a various topic. However, if you’re using open text questions, you may find it difficult to get a quick read on basic trends and key words that are appearing in the responses. That’s a bit easier now using the Word Cloud Insights feature. Here’s how that works…

Go into one of your Forms that has at least one open text question and click on the Responses tab. Then scroll down to your open text question and click on the Insights icon:
