The Best Free Forms Solution for SharePoint

In all my years of working in SharePoint, there has been one consistent need from users: Forms… Better looking forms… more powerful forms… mobile friendly forms… There has ALWAYS been a need for a better forms experience in SharePoint. To help address this need, I created a forms solution for SharePoint several years ago called StratusForms. StratusForms allows you to create forms in SharePoint using HTML, JavaScript, and CSS and works for SharePoint 2007, 2010, 2013, 2016, and Office 365. The goal of StratusForms was to remove limitations of form creation in SharePoint and to get developers off of InfoPath.

New & Improved Cascading Dropdowns for SharePoint Classic Forms

Almost three years ago I posted a script on how to create cascading drop downs for SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online using REST.

Cascading Drop Down Lists in SharePoint / Office 365 using REST

Since then I’ve had a lot of comments asking for additional functionality to that script. So, I decided it was time to update the script and make it a little more modular. If you are a user of the previous script, the biggest change you will see is how you execute the cascade function. Now, instead of passing in an object to the cascade functionality, you pass in an array of objects. This allows you to set up multilevel cascading.The updated script can be found on GitHub at https://github.com/mrackley/HillbillyCascade

As always, take a look at the video at the end of the blog post for step by step instructions and to see the script in action.
