EFFECTIVE: 2020-21-07 – Microsoft announced that Forms Pro was becoming Dynamics 365 Customer Voice. While elements of this blog post may still be accurate, keep in mind that the product has change. You can review the blogs in the D635 Customer Voice category which is being added to over time.

You’ve seen charts & dashboards, and even been given FREE reports… so now let’s look at Forms Pro in relation to Power BI. Microsoft have provided a Power BI app that can be installed from AppSource. The template provided is based on using Forms Pro for case resolution. In order to get the most out of it and see meaningful data, you can use the default Flow template for case resolution. You must have Power BI Pro in order to use this.

To get started, open Power BI and click on Get data from the bottom left corner. When this window opens, click on Get below the Services.

When AppSource opens type Forms in the search bar. Click on the Microsoft Forms Pro Customer Satisfaction app.

If you do not have the correct license needed, you will see this message prompting you to upgrade your account. Check with your System Administrator if you are not sure about this to see if you have pro licenses available.

With the correct license you will be prompted to install the Power BI app. Click the Install button to continue.

Once it has installed you should notice a message stating you are viewing the app with sample data, and a link to click and connect to your own data.

Enter your Dynamics 365 URL that you wish to connect to. You will be prompted to log in.

Once you have connected, you will see a message to update the app to apply and share any changes made. Click on Update app.

You will see a menu on the left of the app to navigate through the report. You will start on an Overview tab.

The Overview shows the number of invitations and responses that have been generated within a specific data range. You can also see the NPS score and the overall sentiment for the feedback. There are various options along the bottom to view the data by location, case priority, case origin, case type and product. A word cloud shows the key phrases based on text submitted. This can then be filtered further to see all positive or all negative sentiment provided.

Agent Performance shows those who have closed cases allowing you to filter the responses by user, sentiment and net promoter score feedback.

The last section shows Customer Satisfaction which is filtered by Account. This shows the NPS based on all responses for Contacts who work for them.

You can also use an Ask a Question featured available on the top right of the report.

There are suggested questions to get you started, or you can start typing out a question of your own to further filter or analyse the data.

    1. Yes! Hopefully we will see more apps like this coming out for Forms Pro. ????

  1. Hi Megan,
    is the standard reporting for a Forms Survey (to find at Questions / Question-wise-analysis with the form) also Power BI based?
    I wonder, because it’s so flexible. It loads quite long, but then it shows the answers to all questions dynamically with different visuals depending on the question type. (Rating/Text/Multiple Choice etc).
    Is anything like that possible with Power BI?
    I am just trying and I am a little lost.
    Thank you!

    1. Hi Kim. Yes, the widgets used in Forms Pro are coming from Power BI functionality. You could create something similar in Power BI directly, but would really need to learn more about Power BI first if you haven’t used it before. I would suggest checking out this Microsoft Learn Module:

      Which is a part of this longer Learning Path:

      I hope that helps!

    2. Thank you Megan for your fast reply!
      Actually I already did quite a lot reporting with Power BI. But not as dynamic as this.
      Do you have any Buzz-Words for me to google, so that I know where to start?
      How to add these pre-checks based on my data whether to show a visual or not and what visual. I only did some conditional formatting checks and changes. But thats way apart from what is happening in this forms reporting.
      Thank you

    3. There are a ton of resources out there, but I always seem to go back to Guy in a Cube on YouTube. Both of the guys work for Microsoft and have a great way of explaining things: – there isn’t going to be anything that shows you specific for Forms Pro, but should help to find concepts and then apply them to your own requirements.
