Introduction to SharePoint Forms

A SharePoint Online tutorial by Peter Kalmström

SharePoint iconForms are often used in SharePoint lists, and in a series of articles we will take a closer look at what an administrator can do with them.

In the demo below Peter Kalmstrom, CEO and Systems Designer of Business Solutions, shows how to make list forms open in a dialog, like in SharePoint 2010.
  1. Click on the List Settings button under the LIST tab in the ribbon.
  2. Click on the Advanced Settings link.
  3. At the bottom, select the Yes radio button for 'Launch forms in a dialog'.
  4. Click OK.
Peter continues with an overview over various methods to customize a form. These methods will also be described in separate articles.

An additional way to create a form is to use a workflow that opens a form. This kind of workflow is suitable for a simple form that feeds into a more detailed form, and it is described in an article in our SharePoint Workflows section.

From the end of 2017 it is also possible to customize a SharePoint list form with PowerApps. Just select that option in a list with the modern interface, and the list form will open in the PowerApps Studio. This is described in our Office 365 from Scratch series.
