I have a Microsoft Form with ~20 questions on it and would like to store the User's input from this form to a SharePoint list via Flow.

Is there an easy way to import columns from the Form, or do I need to manually create each of the columns?

  • What kind of "Form" is it? – Michael Bailey Feb 6 '18 at 19:31

  • Is it possible to import information from database to the form? like a dropdown that has information from the database? – jvargas Aug 21 '19 at 16:57

In Microsoft Forms:

  • Create a single response (in order to download the response Excel Sheet).
  • Download the Response (Responses tab then choose Open in Excel)
  • In the ... menu on the Responses tab choose Delete all responses to clear out your dummy response

Then on your SharePoint site (from IE):

  • Go to Site Contents
  • Choose New > App
  • Choose Import Spreadsheet
  • Give your list a name and choose the response excel file downloaded earlier
  • Click Import


  • There's a template called Record form responses in SharePoint where you can map your form to your new list and that should do it

  • Worked perfectly! Only question is why it doesn't tell you to switch to IE before the last SharePoint step? – vanblart Feb 6 '18 at 19:53

    Glad it worked for you! The Import from Spreadsheet is pretty old and relies on Active X. So Chrome won't work. The site also needs to be a trusted site (or you'll get an invalid spreadsheet or something error). Very user friendly! – theChrisKent Feb 6 '18 at 19:55
