Many of us have been in this situation where want to save data in SP List. Many times, our requirement is to have an anonymous user fill in the data and you want to end up using that data in a SharePoint list. Earlier this was not an easy thing to achieve with either SharePoint online or with SharePoint on premises because of various configurations and setup process involved to enable anonymous access. We can achieve the same thing today and deliver an end-to-end solution in less than 20 minutes. Technology Stack used for this scenario:

 

  1. TypeForm (https://www.typeform.com) for creating anonymous forms
  2. SharePoint online (Office 365 Tenant) for storing the final data
  3. Microsoft Flow to create the connection and pass data between TypeForm and SharePoint online

  Pre-Requisites for this setup:

  1. You need to have a TypeForm account (free tier subscription works just fine, for more details on pricing check out https://www.typeform.com/pricing)
  2. You also need a SharePoint online site with edit access (read and write and create list) to store the data in a SharePoint list
  3. You need to sign up for Microsoft Flow with your Org account (The account you use to login to your SharePoint online site)

 

You can watch the video here for the remaining steps and complete implementation:
