I am happy to announce a new training offering: Ultimate Forms Advanced Training (UFA).

This five-hour lab training is a continuation of Ultimate Forms Foundation Training (UFF).

We have written this training content for those who have already completed the UFF training and are ready to go deeper and learn more advanced topics.

This training is also appropriate for SharePoint Administrators, SharePoint Developers and SharePoint Power Users as well as customers who are already very familiar with the main aspects of using Ultimate Forms tools.

We have provided a detailed description of all the topics covered on our Instructor-Led Training Page here:

New Team Member - Robert Cathlina

Hello, my name is Robert Cathlina and I recently joined the Infowise team as a Training Specialist. Though I am new to the Infowise platform, I have been working with SharePoint since 2011 to train users and automate processes. SharePoint is robust itself, but I believe strongly in the no code Infowise solution to forms and automation.

I am excited to better understand and share the Ultimate Forms Suite. I will begin with writing user guides for the foundational training. This training does a great job of demonstrating all the unique features that the Ultimate Forms platform brings together. These trainings help users to understand the wide range of features that comes with the Ultimate Forms Suite and how to apply them to their day to day tasks.

To find out more information on the Foundation-Level labs and Instructor facilitated training, please visit the training information page. If you have any questions on the training or on the product in general, please reach out to me at Robertc@infowisesolutions.com.

 

Looking forward to training!

 

Prominent validation errors

By: Vladi Gubler | Comments [1] | Category: Products | 5/18/2017

Hi,

We got requests from customers to make validation errors on forms more prominent. Up until now, if you had a validation error on a tab, we would add a red asterisk to the tab name. Customers felt that it was too easy to overlook, especially with larger forms. The Save button would then not work and it would take time to figure out what was going on.

We added a more prominent error sign to the tab name and also a validation summary box under form, listing tab and column names with validation errors, like so:

Hope it helps make forms more user-friendly, just re-save the tab settings to get the latest version.

The change applies to O365 customers only, on-prem customer already received a similar update in one of the latest versions.

 

Using Azure Logic Apps from your Ultimate Forms Environment

By: isaac stith | Comments [0] | Category: General | 5/6/2017

Fresh off the presses is a new article that talks about how users can tie their forms to services inside of Azure. A prime example is Azure Logic Apps, which enables integration between disparate services like LinkedIn, Twitter, or Dynamics CRM. By setting up a Logic App that is activated through an HTTP Request, users can use the Call a Web Service action in Ultimate Forms to kick off these actions. The high-level process is found in our Training Documentation here: Using Actions in Azure Logic Apps

In the article, we take a SharePoint List to create a place for users to submit moderated tweets. The idea being that the marketing team could approve/disapprove tweets sent out under a corporate account. Then we create an Azure Logic App which takes the tweet as a parameter and sends it over to Twitter for publishing. Then we configure Ultimate Forms actions to pass the tweet as a parameter when it gets approved. In the end, we get tweets from SharePoint using a standard approval process.

When I learn about new products, I like to see what the limits I can push the software to. Finding integration points especially with services in Azure show users the flexibility the platform offers. In Addition, the pattern followed to interact with a REST Service could easily be replicated across other web properties. Hopefully seeing what Ultimate Forms can do will enable users to try this on their own lists, reaching into their cloud services.

So, make sure you take a look the training article and download the related document.
