Microsoft InfoPath

microsoft infopath

Microsoft InfoPath is an application for designing, distributing, and filling of electronic forms. The application has a WYSIWYG editor that allows you to add form elements with ease.

The first version of InfoPath was released as a part of Microsoft Office 2003. The tool has been discontinued since then, but Microsoft announced that the application will be supported until July 2026. It’s worth noting that Microsoft InfoPath is available for download, and you can download it for free. However, the software requires an active ProPlus subscription to Office 365.

As for the usage, InfoPath is used to capture information and save that information to a file on a PC or a web server. InfoPath also allows you to access and view the data from multiple sources. It’s also worth mentioning that InfoPath can be used in a Web browser form for data gathering, but the file needs to be hosted on a server that supports InfoPath Forms Services.
