  • Choose “Only people in my organization can respond” and choose “Record Name”

Why

By using VWU authentication and choosing to record their name, the form will automatically capture their VWU email address and their name.

💡

Pro Tip | If you leave “Record Name” unchecked, the form will still require VWU authentication (won’t be open to the world) but it will not record the person’s information filling it out.

Redirecting Form URLS to VWU authentication

How

  • When you want to share a form URL with people, go in the “Share” menu, select “Shorten URL” and click “Copy”

Why

The original URL will work, but the user will first be taken to a microsoft.com screen where they would have to enter their VWU email address only to then be redirected to our VWU login page. By adding the extra URL snippet, the link bypasses the microsoft.com page
