Microsoft Forms is a great tool for simple forms like employee surveys and questionaries. Unfortunately, it can be very limiting if you need to build more sophisticated business forms or business critical systems. This is where Team Forms excels by providing a Form tool that is simple to use yet capable of handling the most complex data capture requirements. This article aims to outline the differences between the two products to help you make an informed decision on which tool to use for the specific job.
