How Much Longer Will InfoPath Forms Work On Office 365?

2020-05-19T14:41:03-07:00February 3rd, 2020|

Will InfoPath Forms stop working on Office 365 at some point? Almost certainly “Yes”, but exactly when is not as definitive as it is for SharePoint 2016. It could be much sooner than the “extended support” end date of July 2026 set for SharePoint 2016. Microsoft stopped development of InfoPath Forms Services in 2013. [...]

2020-05-19T19:31:19-07:00September 13th, 2019|

Microsoft Flow garners much attention as a workflow creation tool, yet due to the complexity of use, steep learning curve, and cost, the tool may not be the best choice for many companies.

Microsoft Flow enables organizations to build workflows for Microsoft cloud-based systems, such as Office 365 and Dynamics. Microsoft has geared Flow for use by so-called Citizen Developers.

It’s Not Just Onboarding

2020-05-19T15:07:16-07:00June 6th, 2019|

Human Resources is not just about bringing on new hires and managing leave requests. The reality of HR is that, over time, relationships between employer and employees will change. Employees receive promotions, change roles, undergo training, resign, and retire. All of these activities—termed as “midboarding” and “offboarding”—require the same level of attention, and can [...]

No-code technology allows so-called “citizen developers” to build applications using intuitive graphical interfaces. No-code platforms allow users to “drag-and-drop” components so they can create applications that automate business processes.  Businesses are jumping on this train because it pushes application creation down to the groups that use those applications and relieves pressure on an often over-burdened IT department. With the “developers” being close to people who will use [...]
