Unable to link Form shared with me

I am working on a Flow which uses trigger "when a new response is submitted" for an O365 Form. A colleague has created a new Form to link to it and shared with me but it does not appear on the drop down list to select to add. Is there a way to add manually and if so what do you input? 

 

Otherwise the only way around it I can see is for me to save as the Form and then link from there. I would expect if its shared with me for it to appear on the drop down as if I had created it so a little clunky.

Re: Unable to link Form shared with me

By  O365 Form I assume you mean a form in Microsoft Forms? If so and it's been shared with you it's a group form and although you can't select a group form from the dropdown you can enter it as a custom value.

Get the url for the Form and in the trigger in Flow paste just the characters AFTER the id= as a custom value.

So if for example your form response url is..
https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=g63aHu-yPUiB8SxIaC9A7B4fqWJxhk9EprbnRFYHGoVUME41...

..you paste the following in as a custom value both in the "When a new response is submitted" AND in the "Get response details" action.

Then you carry on with the Flow as normal.

Re: Unable to link Form shared with me

To say the current behaiour is a little clunky is putting it mildly. I don't see why a "Shared with me" option exists at all when it seems impossible to share forms created in MS Forms, with individual users or groups.  I understand items created in that manner can still be shared, but not specifically with "me".  Perhaps MS Forms created in some other way appear under "Shared with me", if so my colleagues clearly don't want to share with me as I've never seen anything in my list. 😐
