Our goal is to create a form that can be filled out on a computer.…We can email it to somebody or post it, they can fill it out and send it back to…us without ever really needing to print it.…Perhaps you already have a form created in Word that just needs some work.…For example, here's our ugly form that we saw earlier and even though it…doesn't work well for us now, we can actually use some of this content in order…to create a new form.…It gives us a little bit of a start.…But if you're creating a form that's new for your organization, you may be…able to get an even bigger jumpstart by customizing an existing form that's well-structured.…
The Microsoft Office web site includes a number of forms that you can download for free.…Let's see how.…Let's click the Office button.…Let's choose New, and then we have My templates, but also templates from Office Online.…And if you look, there are lots of categories.…So if I knew, for example, that I was creating an invoice form, I might…choose to click Invoices.…
