The Office 365 suite has an intranet tool called Microsoft SharePoint. The tool allows folks within a group to share information, workflows, documents and more using web browsers. It is similar to a set of websites, but specially catered to be used for the internal communications and business processes of an organization.
As this is not an introduction to SharePoint, you will already need to be familiar with navigating around in SharePoint.
Microsoft SharePoint is a full-featured product designed to be used for organization communication and interaction. We will be focusing on only a single aspect of SharePoint in this document: SharePoint Lists.
Lists have similarities to both Excel spread sheets and database tables. They are used in SharePoint in a similar way: to organize and store data within the SharePoint site and organization.

Your list should now look like the following:
This was a simple example of creating a form. We’ll use this one in a later example of building out Flows.
