InfoPath 2010 Essential Training

with Gini Courter

Video: Welcome

Hi! I am Gini Courter, and I'd like to welcome you to InfoPath 2010 Essential Training. In this course, I will show you how to use Microsoft InfoPath Designer to create powerful forms that are easy to use. The templates we build will be strong templates that won't waste users' time skipping over sections they don't need, templates that use rules to validate the data our users enter against schemas that we will create as we build our forms. InfoPath contains over 30 controls, so we can provide our users with a rich user experience.

Welcome

Hi! I am Gini Courter, and I'd like to welcome you to InfoPath 2010 Essential Training. In this course, I will show you how to use Microsoft InfoPath Designer to create powerful forms that are easy to use. The templates we build will be strong templates that won't waste users' time skipping over sections they don't need, templates that use rules to validate the data our users enter against schemas that we will create as we build our forms. InfoPath contains over 30 controls, so we can provide our users with a rich user experience.

Many organizations use InfoPath exclusively with SharePoint, so you will learn how to publish your form in a SharePoint Library so users can fill it out using a browser. Whether you are new to InfoPath forms or have some experience but want a more structured way to think about form development, I am going to provide you with an in-depth look at how to use Microsoft InfoPath Designer 2010 to create forms that create business solutions. Let's get going.
