RESTON, Va., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This week the innovators of the SharePoint eCommerce Module announced the availability of a free trial for the SharePoint Smart Forms Module. This SharePoint based Web Part aims to help companies using SharePoint to affordably build and deploy powerful forms.
What's particularly interesting about this form builder solution is the way it elegantly leverages native SharePoint constructs without sacrificing ease of use and flexibility. It does not require the overhead of an external database and is fully self-contained.
The SharePoint Smart Forms Module promises the following highly sought after capabilities:
- Multi-Part forms
- Ability to post to SharePoint Lists, external databases or web services
- Pre-populated forms that trigger native SharePoint workflows
- Auto email form submissions
- Forms with multiple column designs and layout flexibility
- Intuitive form building experience
- Hidden form fields for passing hidden values with form submissions
- Default form field values – easily set the default values of form fields
- Post to SharePoint Lists which are locked down
- Rapid form building (read: it takes minutes to stand up a new form)
"The SharePoint community needs an affordable option for building SharePoint forms quickly and easily. With the demise of InfoPath, companies need to consider tools like this to streamline building forms," said Joel Oleson, a top SharePoint influencer award winner.
SharePoint AMS believes a forms solution needs to be as easy as adding a Web Part to a page. "We wanted it to automate business processes using native SharePoint workflows. We wanted it to post data to a SharePoint List, and we wanted it to send a custom email and land the user on a pre-determined landing page, like a Step 2 of 3 or Thank You page."
With this tool, SharePoint AMS aims to drastically reduce the learning curve for building powerful SharePoint forms. In addition, it will enable anyone to create beautiful forms.
"We wanted our customers to be free of yet another large investment in something that SharePoint already does (read workflows) natively just to get forms."
A typical custom SharePoint form needs slightly different things, such as a custom thank you message or email, a specific landing page, different submit/cancel buttons or URL parameters to pass to the personalized landing page. The Smart Forms Module promises to deliver such functionality within the spirit of keeping the form building experience elegant and straight-forward.
"It's a web part. You add it to a page, tell it what fields you want, click OK and you have a beautiful form. Simplicity is imperative," said Sean Bordner, CEO of SharePoint AMS.
The Smart Forms Module is now available as a free trial and can be found on the SharePointAMS.com website.
"It's a tool that belongs in every SharePoint Admin's toolbox," said Scott Devore, Sr. Sales & Marketing Executive for SharePoint AMS. "The Smart Forms Module works with SharePoint 2007, 2010, and SharePoint 2013." Download the free trial!
