ThreeWill wrote a blog post for the Microsoft SharePoint Product Team Blog on building a generic Service Request Office Business Application (OBA) using InfoPath Forms Services.
Today’s guest blog post is from ThreeWill, a Microsoft Managed Gold Partner located in Alpharetta, Georgia that focuses on SharePoint development and integration. ThreeWill recently worked with Microsoft to build a generic Service Request Office Business Application (OBA) using InfoPath Forms Services. The application addresses the need for enterprises to have a no-code way to quickly turn around service request based SharePoint sites (i.e. sites that are using electronic forms to initiate a request and tie that request to a workflow).
Some Service Request examples are:
- Request for Marketing Funds
- Request for Laptops or other equipment
- Request for Project Site Creation
The solution is packaged up as a SharePoint Feature to enable deployment to a Server Farm and standard SharePoint provisioning. The application supports integration with Active Directory to pre-populate user information and provides easy access to Web Services from InfoPath using Data Connections. Finally, configuration information is stored in a SharePoint List for secure yet convenient access to Site Administrators. Over to ThreeWill on how they did it.
