I am having trouble deciding what the best way to proceed here is. The project I am working on involves multiple asset types with multiple 'trips' that can require multiple assets of varying types. I need to be able to display a schedule of the trips, as well as a small schedule for each user (the scheduling will be plenty difficult, but that's for later). The problem I am looking at is deciding whether it would be better to submit trip itineraries through a form library or a list form. Either way, a workflow seems necessary to propagate data to other lists (right now, I am hoping to be able to accomplish my task using various Asset lists- one for each type- a Trip list, and a Roster list that simply correlates Trip IDs with Asset IDs).
I'm trying to decide which would be the best option- form library or list form. Any suggestions? Is this project even possible? (Bear in mind that I cannot get access to the server beyond the basic ways, i.e. SPD and InfoPath, as the IT department refuses to return my emails, so it is unlikely that I will be able to add any significant code)
EDIT: I should add that the option I am currently looking at involves using a form library to store Trips, with lists for the various assets and a list that stores the correlation between assets and trips. The workflow would make sure that the data matched between these lists and libraries, and the correlation list would be hidden from user access.
