Whats the best way to present a list form to users? We are just starting to convert some of our dead-tree documents into SharePoint forms and workflows. What is the best way to present these forms without making users click Add New Form? Many people who have no SharePoint experience do no realize the little link under a list will get them their form. I want to present this so it is easily understood and so that we do not have to train everyone.
Some things I've done in the past are:
- Making a link list dedicated as the central new form list, one click access to enter any form
- Created several buttons that link to the new forms
- In some custom dashboards, I've used jQuery and Lytebox techniques to open forms in modal windows (in Sharepoint 2007)
I generally prefer InfoPath, but it does require Server edition (not available on Foundation).
