Infopath 2010 vs Custom Application
Posted on 2010-09-10
My company is considering using Infopath and Sharepoint to create an application to gather data from users in the field. This would be a pretty basic application involving the user adding and editing what amounts to timesheets. Then from that, creating some summary reports for their inputs only. The management would want to be able to create/view reports across all the users. Sounds like something that can be done within Infopath and Sharepoint. But i'm a novice when it comes to the development using those tools.
The advantage seems to be the modification of this application would not have to involve a developer per se like a custom application would. If the employee within the company is very good at learning both Infopath and Sharepoint - then they could in effect modify the Infopath/Sharepoint application.
So, can you tell me if this makes sense or not?
