How can we improve Power BI?

Connection with Office 365 Forms

Hello!
A connector with Office 365 Forms would be useful instead my organization uses the Forms to collect a lot of informations from the custumers. How can it will be possible without needs to export the data for Excel?

Thanks!

        I believe the solution is to create the form in SharePoint. Then you have access to the Excel with the replies

        +1 on this idea, it seems logical that Microsoft Forms would be one of the OOTB connectors for PowerBI however it isn't. Is this on the roadmap or is there a reason why it isn't being done?

        PLEASE! GOOGLE DATA STUDIO ALREADY READS GDOCS FROM GOOGLE FORMS. WILL POWER BI BE STOPED ON THAT ISSUE?

        I've used "Flow" to push the relevant data from forms to an Excel document in my onedrive. Using this as a dataset is a breeze.

        Flow can be a tad slow to update the XLSX though. Often a few hours goes by between submitting the form and flow working it's magic.

        Ideally this should all be integrated like google sheets and its assocated forms. Another way would be for FORMs to save a shared excel file in one drive where power BI can access. Live updates will then show. seems pretty easy to me. They key is getting results without saving and creating more files.

        Yes this would be a very logical step for Forms! Perhaps it isn't available at this present time as Forms is still in Beta? Make it happen MS :-)

        Some times its frustration to find all the good work done, but lack of understanding how the workflow can be used. Is everyone working in smal islands and cant see the "big picture"? it not each amazing app that will make me use this instead of using techstuff from others
        OF COURSE, MS FORMS MUST CONNECT TO POWER BI. Going via execl its like going via paper and pen

        Hi team, Hi Rodrigo,
        I have the exact same request. That would be really cool. Just startet to use forms and it makes short and simple surveys so much easier and faster to create. The easy visualization of collected data with Power BI is an absolute necessary step in enhancing both services.
        Thank you!
