Hello!

So I need to come up with something in Outlook that when I send an email to someone, the recipient should be able to respond with what he wants to reply but at the end of it needs to confirm if “YES - This is okay to proceed” or “NO - This is not okay to proceed”. The goal is to avoid having an unclear/not direct answers from the people. I was thinking of the voting button but I know there are other ways to make it more formal. Also, we have to make responses more controlled, no ambiguity around interpretation.

Please can anyone help. Thanks!

What is the shortcut key for Format Selection?
Ctrl+1 (the number one) will open the Format dialog for whatever is selected.

I would say that the binary proposition of Yes or No is fairly unambiguous; the trick would be in how one articulates the question. In terms of what options are available to you, the only thing I'm aware of (besides the voting function) would be Microsoft Forms. I know that MS Outlook has a Forms Quick Poll function bolted onto it now, so that might be what your after?

I also thought of creating something using Outlook Forms but I have no idea how tbh. Is there any guide on how to do such? I tried Google but it gives different idea.

It's not called Outlook Forms - it's Microsoft Forms. If you google that and Outlook poll, there are plenty of website and videos that guide you through the process - Exhibit A. Good luck!
