InfoPath 2013 Essential Training

with Gini Courter

Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hi! I am Gini Courter and I would like to welcome you to InfoPath 2013 Essential Training. In this course I will show you how to use Microsoft InfoPath Designer to create powerful forms that are easy to use. We'll have templates that use rules, to validate the data our users enter, against schemas that we will create as we build our forms. Many organizations use InfoPath exclusively with SharePoint, so you will learn how to publish your form in a SharePoint library, so users can complete it using a browser.
