4.0 out of 5 stars Microsoft InfoPath 2010 Step by Step 15 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've read a number of Step by Step books and they always help with the idiosyncrasies of SharePoint 2010. This Step by Step book on InfoPath 2010 is very easy to read and gives an easy to understand overview of building and deploying a variety of InfoPath 2010 forms. A really worthwhile purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars SharePoint & InfoPath: Better together 3 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I know both Laura Rogers and Darvish Shadravan having presented many times at the same conferences as they do. I always try and attend their sessions, as they cover material that complements mine. I learn much from both of them and this book provides an easy to follow format of using InfoPath with SharePoint 2010. As with all step-by-step books, it is tutorial based and takes the reader from the basics to more advanced techniques. Laura and Darvish have a wealth of practical knowledge that they have accumulated over the years by working with business, and this shows in the book, by explaining concepts in an easy to understand format, and is filled with gems and workarounds. I highly recommend purchasing this book, if you are an intermediate to advance power use of SharePoint, and want to do more than you can do with the browser.

By Brent - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Combining Infopath and Sharepoint was my goal and this book taught me how to do that in a fast track way. I could not believe that I went cover to cover in a short amount of time and learned so much! Now it will be a great reference book! I had a small question and Laura Rodgers answered it via Twitter. I now will be following her for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Your search for a book that covers using InfoPath 2010 with SharePoint 2010 is over 11 Jan 2012
By Johnathan Lightfoot - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have followed Laura Rogers and Darvish Shadravan for a while now and have always enjoyed seeing them speak at various conferences and events. So, when a client approached me with this book wanting to know if they should buy it, I told them yes without hesitation or having even read it.

After flipping through the first few chapters I just knew that I had to buy a copy for myself as well. Laura and Darvish have written an excellent book focused around using InfoPath 2010 with SharePoint 2010, something that has been needed for some time in my opinion. I really liked the layout and the approach the authors chose for conveying the information. It is divided into 14 chapters which start with the basics and slowly ramps the reader up into more advanced topics. The explanations and pace of the book is excellent. At no time when I read the book did I feel as if they took me down a path of learning and then left me hanging while they went on to another topic.

There is a nice mixture between text and exercises within the book. While this book could be used a go to for information when needed, I would suggest going through the entire book cover to cover first. Laura and Darvish have explained everything very well. But you have to remember that the book chapters do build upon each other. So if you were to flip through the book looking for something you will most likely find it but if you don't have a background in InfoPath or SharePoint you may just miss a an important concept that they wrote in an earlier section.

As I wrote earlier this is a great book with a lot of good information on using InfoPath 2010 with SharePoint 2010. It reads very easily and if you have a free weekend with access to a SharePoint 2010 site and InfoPath 2010 installed you will probably be able to work through the reading and the exercises pretty easily. That said however do not get me wrong and think that this is a basic book. Laura and Darvish do go into the more complex areas of using the software as well. Such as adding logic and rules, integrating with SharePoint workflows, InfoPath Forms Services, Dashboards, and advanced functions. So this is not a lightweight book. It's their easy writing style (almost as if they were sitting next to you talking you through the content) which makes it such a good resource.

Chapter Highlights:
Chapter 1 - Office Backstage in InfoPath, Understand how to create an XML file, Create an InfoPath form, Add, data connections to a form.
Chapter 2 - Choosing a form template, Understanding form compatibility levels, learn what the document information panel is (--did you know that you can customize this?), run the Design Checker.
Chapter 3 - Use Page Layout templates, add tables to forms, understand data binding, work with InfoPath Controls.
Chapter 4 - Insert a custom page design template, use available controls for a form, customize a travel request list using InfoPath, use calculations in a form.
Chapter 5 - Work with the InfoPath Rules Task Pane, add conditions to Rules, Using Rules with Picture Buttons, Create Forms with Wizard-style interfaces.
Chapter 6 - Create a time off request form, set up Submit button actions, Concatenate field names to create a file name, publish a form as a content type.
Chapter 7 - Add a SharePoint list data connection to a drop down control, work with Data Connection Libraries, Use the External Item Picker control.
Chapter 8 - Create a simple feedback form, configure the InfoPath Form Web Part, learn about Web Part connections, create an input parameter.
Chapter 9 - Add data from a web service to your forms, Work with form load rules, create an event registration form.
Chapter 10 - Integrate InfoPath forms in workflows, customize an initiation form to look more polished, update forms when fields change, use task actions in workflows to generate a task form in the workflow.
Chapter 11 - Create a time off request form, create an approval section on the approvals view, create a SharePoint Designer workflow to send emails, create multiple rules on a single submit button.
Chapter 12 - Understand InfoPath Form Services in SharePoint Central Admin, Learn how to use Fiddler to monitor browser forms, analyze the effects of attachments on form performance.
Chapter 13 - Work with custom views, learn to apply conditional formatting to views, add buttons to SharePoint pages for creating new forms, add Key Performance Indicators that report metrics from your forms, utilize the Content Query Web Part to surface information.
Chapter 14 - Utilize the Rule Inspector to analyze all rules inside a form, learn how to modify the toolbar, create multiple default values in a form, work with the Translate function to manipulate text in case-sensitive form fields.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to follow 6 Dec 2011
By Marie - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have always enjoyed reading Laura Rogers blog and her tutorials so I was excited to see that she worked on this book. It is the main reason that I purchased the book. The steps are simple and easy to follow. I was most interested in the custom workflows and I was glad to see a chapter dedicated to setting up these workflows in SP Designer. I am working on a few custom InfoPath forms and workflows which the book has helped me tremendously. The book also comes with a digital version so I am able to do quick searches to find what I need.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resource for both new and experienced SharePoint users 10 April 2012
By Kimberly Frehe - Published on
This is one of the best SharePoint books that I have read. I love the idea of InfoPath and have used the 2007 version with varying degrees of success. Even with some familiarity with InfoPath 2010, I learned something new in every chapter. The tone is very conversational, where it feels like the authors are sitting next to you walking you through the exercises. I never felt this book about technology got too "techy" and I would recommend this for end users, power users and developers alike (why code if you can use an out of the box InfoPath feature). The print screens are excellent and really enable you to fully grasp the concepts, I read the book without a computer or InfoPath in front of me and was able to follow each exercise and feel like I understood it.

Laura and Darvish do an excellent job of telling you what you can do, WHY you should do it, and give you different options on how. There is also commentary about what worked in their testing and what didn't...they don't tell you it won't work, just that the way they did this or that did not work very well and give recommendations on alternate ways.

The fact that a chapter is dedicated to basic workflow is awesome...any user, new or experienced, will have the knowledge to not only build a form, but a usable solution. And I love the advanced topics at the end. It is a mix-up of useful information about a variety of topics that show these authors really want to empower users with knowledge to help them succeed. I feel very strongly that even experienced SharePoint users will learn a lot from this book.

I also recommend reading Johnathan Lightfoot's review about this book, it is right on the money. I don't need to repeat what he has already said, but I completely agree with him.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT BOOK! 30 Mar 2012
By Mr. Yemi Emmanuel - Published on
I've used SharePoint for some time and have designed some forms with InfoPath 2003 and 2007(the earlier versions). I was looking for a book that would introduce some elements of InfoPath 2010 and also some new ideas of building applications with InfoPath 2010 - as Microsoft have only recently been extoling the virtues of SharePoint 2010 combined with InfoPath. I also wanted a light read, and as I have had some joy with previous Microsoft SharePoint books (Penelope Coventry), then I thought I'd give this one a go too; bearing in mind at the time that there were not too many reviews of the book. I bought the hard copy - but also wanted the PDF version for my I-Pad - as I am gradually cutting down on the amounts of hard copies that I purchase.

I've found Darvish Shadravan & Laura Rogers to be great at what they do. They do have a great breadth of knowledge on SharePoint 2010 as well as InfoPath. They introduce concepts of InfoPath by showing you concepts of what you would actually do with InfoPath 2010 and SharePoint Designer in real scenarios - as opposed to showing the tonnes of functions that InfoPath is capable of doing - but you probably won't use in the real world. If writers could publish books like these, then it certainly would not make life so boring when it comes to reading techie / techie manuals. Real life world applications (Flight Booking and Helpdesks) are included which would allow a user to build and customise a SharePoint application based on their own requirements.

Darvish & Laura have also focussed a lot more on using InfoPath 2010 for work flows, order processing as opposed to just using SharePoint 2010 workflows.

What I did find slightly challenging was Chapter 11 - Building an Approval Process. I would advise that you patiently take your time going through this exercise as the steps are quite numerous - and if you haven't used InfoPath previously then it could be quite tricky. It would also have been preferable if a user had to go through all of the steps in creating the approval process form from scratch - although this is supplemented in Chapter 14. There were one or 2 typos as well as some errors (these could possibly be due to different versions of InfoPath), but these should not prevent you from developing SharePoint applications with InfoPath 2010. I also would also have liked to have seen more examples real world business applications. However, what has been given in terms of forms and real world examples is sufficient for any user to fully understand the potentials of InfoPath 2010 and SharePoint 2010.

I would recommend this book to anyone who is new to InfoPath 2010 or would like to get more knowledge on how SharePoint 2010, SharePoint Designer 2010 and SharePoint InfoPath 2010 can be used for developing custom built applications.
