Interactive Form/Spreadsheet To Auto Update When External Source Has Made Changes
Posted on 2013-11-22
I am in discussions concerning the development of a system that will allow our external suppliers the ability to have a form on their end which they will complete/modify. On our end, we would be able to immediately see any changes that were made. Unfortunately, I am a total Newbie in terms of this. I was thinking of something such as SFTP or XML that would "listen" for changes and respond accordingly. Write access would be for the suppliers while the users at my company would only be able to read/view the file/form.. Basically, this would be a standard form which can be completed externally and viewed immediately on our end. SharePoint is out of the question since the company is not willing to buy the licenses. This is still in open discussion so am reaching out to the Experts for some much needed advice/ideas/suggestions etc. Thanks in advance!
