SharePoint Tutorial: How to Create a SharePoint Employee In & Out Board, Part III
In the previous articles, you created the In & Out Board lists and formed the workflow to generate new employee status entries or update existing entries. In this article, I will show you how to create an InfoPath form for employees to log in and out, and how to put that form on a SharePoint page.
Create the In & Out Board InfoPath Form
To create the InfoPath form, you will need Microsoft Office InfoPath 2013 Designer and administrative permissions on the site where the IOBoard list was created. Let’s get started:
Add the Form to a SharePoint Page
Now that the In & Out Board form is created, you want to add it to your SharePoint page to provide quick and easy access for your employees. In this section, I will show you how to add the InfoPath Form Web Part to your page and configure the web part to use the In & Out form that we just created.
Congratulations, you have successfully created and added the Employee In & Out Board to your site page. Take it for a spin and post new ways that you can improve the app. With that, we end our series on the Employee In & Out Board. In Part 1 of the series, you created the supporting lists and columns for the application. In Part 2 of the series, you created the workflow in SharePoint designer that either created new entries or update the status of an existing entry. Finally, in this article, Part 3, you tied it all together with an InfoPath form and put the Employee In & Out Board on your site page. I hope you found this article series interesting and fun.
