How to Create Fillable Forms with Microsoft Word

Creating forms with Microsoft Word is easy, but the challenge comes in when you decide to create fillable forms with options that you can send to people and have them fill out digitally. Whether you need a form for gathering information about people or if you are trying to take a survey to test out user response to software or a new product, MS Word has the solution for you.

Note: the screenshots in this tutorial are from Word 2013 but this should work the same in Word 2010

 

Enable the Developer Tab

In order to create fillable forms, you will need to start by enabling the developer tab by clicking on the “File” drop-down menu and then choose “Options.” Open the “Customize Ribbon” tab and select the “Main Tabs” option under “Customize the Ribbon.”

Once you have done this, you will notice that an additional menu has been added to the top of the screen with several new developer options.

To Template, or Not to Template?

There are two main options to get started with your form creation. Option one is easy to use if you can find a template that suits your needs. To find templates, Click on the “File” menu, select “New.” You will see many premade templates available for download. Simply types “Forms” on search bar and look through the selection of templates to find one that suits your needs.
