Outlook Forms alternative or workaround
Posted on 2011-09-22
We are currently using Exchange 2003 with a combination of WinXP and Windows7 pcs running Outlook 2003 and 2007.
As we started installing Windows 7 x64 machines I noticed our custom Outlook forms would not print wysiwyg. It seems that the add-on we were using (xprint) does not have a 64 bit version.
It seems that MS is moving away from custom forms in Outlook and i am thinking we should start exploring other options for custom forms. We currently use Sharepoint Services 3.0 and are not planning on upgrading. I looked at onenote but it seemed that in order to use this solution and deploy forms for users that an expensive sharepoint upgrade had to be purchased.
Are there any cost effective alternatives to Outlook custom forms? What is the difficulty of implementing each alternative. I am looking for details here and not just a list of alternatives.
