SHAREPOINT DATA CONNECTOR
Submit data to your SharePoint list or library on premise or in the cloud
Your Formotus forms will connect directly your SharePoint account, including Office 365. There are no SharePoint add-ons or other software to install. Formotus mobile forms can submit to a SharePoint document library or list. Your Formotus mobile forms can also perform data queries on your SharePoint lists and libraries. Submitted forms can trigger SharePoint workflows. Choose SharePoint as your primary data store, or as a data portal to other systems. Formotus does not store your data.
WHAT A SHAREPOINT DATA CONNECTOR OFFERS:
- Working offline—open and fill in your Formotus mobile forms with data, submit to a queue to upload when your device reconnects to the network
- Data caching—allows you to create a Formotus mobile form that will re-use cached data from the most recent query, until a new query is needed by the user
- Dispatch/Workflows—leverage your SharePoint investment and turn it into a “mobile worker dispatch center”. Create Formotus mobile workflow forms and SharePoint workflows to route work, create approval workflows, and dispatch field service technicians. [NOTE: Formotus mobile workflow forms can be used with or without SharePoint workflows]
