I have read this article http://blogs.office.com/b/sharepoint/archive/2013/03/04/options-to-create-forms-in-sharepoint-2013.aspx about options to create forms in SharePoint 2013. I learned that configuring and publishing InfoPath form is only available in SharePoint Enterprise version (http://www.appvity.com/blogs/post/2013/06/16/How-to-configure-and-publish-InfoPath-to-SharePoint-2013.aspx).

My question is: is it possible to create forms (without using Visual Studio) in SharePoint 2013 Standard version? We only have power users, not programmers, so we would like an option that enables us to create forms even without programming knowledge. Thanks!

  • Well, I am not still aware of the third party solutions as I am new to SharePoint @ArsalanAdamKhatri. I might as well stick with the Microsoft products first. :) – Lester Nubla Nov 6 '13 at 0:58
  • I have same question. My farm is std 2013. Can I use Infopath to amend forms and workflows? – Mark L Jun 29 '15 at 3:18
  • @Mark As far as I can remember, you'll be needing an Enterprise version of SP then use InfoPath. See my comment on the accepted answer below. – Lester Nubla Jun 29 '15 at 4:12

Without some programming or markup knowledge, you would need Enterprise for InfoPath or go a third-party solution route (there are a few third-party forms solutions that might work for you).

With a little bit of markup and programming knowledge, you could use SharePoint Designer to edit the New/Edit/View forms of a list. You could also create a form in HTML and use JavaScript to do the validation and submission. If either of these options are worth pursuing, we can provide more details on how you could use either option.


I know this is an old question, but there is a new solution by Mark Rackley & co. The source code is practically cut an paste and allows some really neat customizations. See also his Stratus Forms


  • Finally a solution after 4 years. :D – Lester Nubla Aug 11 '17 at 21:44
