How to add a Form to Microsoft Stream videos

Hi All,

in a recent and welcome news, Microsoft added the possibility to insert one or more Microsoft Forms into Microsoft Stream videos.

I think this is a very good idea to start to use together different O365 products

Let’s see how to use it and two different videos’ behaviours

How to add a Form

The first step to add a Form to a Microsoft Stream video is… to have a Form!

So go to Microsoft Forms service page (https://forms.office.com/) and create one or more forms or quiz

This is a test form with some questions.
Click on Share, choose anonimity than copy the form URL, we will need it later

Same as above but with a Quiz.
Click on Share, choose anonimity than copy the form URL, we will need it later too.

Now that we have some Form URLs, we can switch to Microsoft Stream service page (https://web.microsoftstream.com) and select the video you want to add the form to, you will find a new side bar “Interactivity” with a “+ Add Form” button.
Note: as you can see, it’s not possible to create a new Form from here, that’s why we create it before and get the URLs

Place the video timeline slider in the precise moment when you need to add the Form, there is no way to change the Form time later.

Click on “+ Add Form” and paste the form URL and the form’s name, then click on “Add to timeline”

Repeat these steps for every forms you want to add to the timeline.
The image below is an example of what you get at the end.

What happens to your video with Forms when you view it the first time and the second time?

In the video below you will see what happens to your video with Forms embedded the first time you view it.

After you view the video, you will notice which forms you have seen yet (full dot) and which no (empty dot)

Same above in the sidebar

In the video below you will see what happens to your video with Forms embedded the second time you view it.
As you can see, this time the video will not be interrupted

As always, I hope this could help some of you.
Best.
Luca
