Very new to SP, and I've been reading up on workflows but cannot get my head around how to accomplish a wizard/multi-step type "form".
I have set up subsites for individual client's wherein I have all the pertinent lists / libraries set up. Some lists the admin controls, other lists/libraries the client can contribute to. One major component of the subsite I am trying to create is data collection for a legal service. Now, I realized I cannot use lists to collect repeating information (let's say a user has 3 properties for which I am collecting the same type of info (columns, etc.)), and I don't want to get involved yet with InfoPath because of the learning curve.
But I got to thinking I could just parse something like that out into a list that can collect repeating information - I consider it one subset of my entire data collection.
I can also use a contact list to collect their information, and possibly info on their relatives (again, this could be considered "repeating") - this is a separate list.
I thought to utilize workflows to "combine" these lists into what seemed like a wizard / multi-step form for the client. Would it be possible to do something like this? I thought I could start "Step 1" and then when the client is finished some mechanism in the workflow determines "finished" on this step, and then starts another workflow?
The big problem I am having is in understanding whether or not I can do something like this with multiple lists.
Any ideas/examples/suggestions? Much appreciated.
