5 SharePoint List demo solutions you might have missed

These 5 InfoPath demo videos demonstrate several solutions you can create for working with SharePoint lists and SharePoint list items, with and without writing code in InfoPath.

In the last 2 months, I've been pretty active publishing demo videos trying to demonstrate different solutions you can create using InfoPath with SharePoint lists.

If you are not subscribed to my InfoPath demo videos channel (which is not the same as my InfoPath video tutorials channel where I mostly teach you how to do things with InfoPath) or if you do not regularly visit my InfoPath 2010 videos and InfoPath 2013 videos pages, you may have missed the following InfoPath with SharePoint demo videos I recently created and published on the topic of using InfoPath forms with SharePoint lists.

So I've compiled the 5 InfoPath with SharePoint solutions here for you.

1. Create a new SharePoint list with an InfoPath form

This InfoPath 2013 with SharePoint 2013 video demonstrates an InfoPath form that makes use of code to create a new SharePoint list and where the user is free to specify any number of columns to add to the new SharePoint list. You can read more about the solution here: Add a new SharePoint list using an InfoPath form.

2. Delete SharePoint lists with InfoPath (codeless)

This InfoPath 2010 with SharePoint 2010 video demonstrates an InfoPath form you can use to select an existing SharePoint list from a drop-down list box for deletion. This solution is a codeless solution.

3. Create SharePoint list items from an InfoPath repeating table (workflow; codeless)

This InfoPath 2013 with SharePoint 2013 video demonstrates the use of the new Loop feature in SharePoint Designer 2013 with which you can loop through rows of a repeating table and use the data to create items in a SharePoint list.

4. Bulk insert, update, delete SharePoint list items with an InfoPath repeating table

This InfoPath 2013 with SharePoint 2013 video demonstrates the use of a Repeating Table control on an InfoPath form that can be used to insert, update, and delete items in a SharePoint list.

The user only has to add rows to the repeating table to be able to insert SharePoint list items, edit data in existing rows to be able to update SharePoint list items, or delete existing rows to be able to delete SharePoint list items.

The code in the InfoPath form has been written in such a way that it knows whether the user is inserting, updating, or deleting SharePoint list items; and all inserts, updates, and deletes are performed in one web service call to SharePoint (so not repeatedly).

You can read more about the solution here: SharePoint list CRUD operations using an InfoPath repeating table.

5. Attach any InfoPath file to a SharePoint list item

This InfoPath 2010 with SharePoint 2010 video demonstrates the use of a File Attachment control on an InfoPath form that can be used to upload and attach any type of file to a SharePoint list item. You can read more about the solution here: Attach any file to a SharePoint list item using InfoPath.

There is also a codeless solution for attaching only images to SharePoint list items for which I created a video tutorial.
