Given the end of life of InfoPath, what is the recommended alternative going forward for new development?  We are looking at using Nintex Forms.

Solution
Hi Talbot, The roadmap going forward is via PowerApps and Microsoft Flow. These products are not direct replacements for InfoPath offering a much wider canvas. It's likely, imho, that Microsoft will craft a forms product from the PowerApps and Flow platforms. I'm guessing more to be said at Ignite. Keep an eye on the Office 365 Roadmap too. Nintex is a strategic Microsoft partner is this area so may still be the right choice and InfoPath still has legacy support for some time but I agree not for new projects.

You should take a look at FlowForma http://www.flowforma.com/ Pricing model is much more competitive and, allows you to build the Form / Workflow in the same designer.
Highlighted
All depends on requirements, Nintex isn't a direct replacement for InfoPath, functionality wise yes but cost wise no. PowerApps will be your advanced user interaction experience included in the Office 365 licence, though there are many many other alternatives available.

Depending on your requirements and timeframes, Microsoft PowerApps, Microsoft Flow and even the new Office forms might meet your requirements.

 

check out and find a bit more on it here: https://support.office.com/en-us/forms?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

Nintex pricing is insane. We were considering making the switch to Nintex, but after meeting with their sales rep, decided not to hand bundles of money to them. I haven't found anything that is what I would consider to be a viable replacement for InfoPath. MS Forms is about as far from a sutible alternative as you can get.

Do you know if now there are some new programs or workaround that can we use instead InfoPath?

Highlighted
We are now using Infowise. A lot cheaper than Nintex.

You could also take a look at Lightning Tools or Skybow products, or StratusForms (The commercial version of Forms 7 which was a community solution, but is free for non commercial use.)

SPARK is web-based forms builders that lets you quickly and easily create multi-lingual electronic forms within SharePoint environment and Office 365.

SPARK which refers to "SharePoint Advance Redesign Kit" allows users, designer and SharePoint admins to easily build highly professional forms in SharePoint platform simply by placing a rich set of drag/drop controls in a user-friendly editor which let them also controlling and configuring the control’s properties, style, validations, rules and formats and publishing these forms to SharePoint lists and libraries by just a click.

​Using SPARK, you can easily and quickly create and design controls in your form by dragging and dropping them in the design canvas. You can create simple forms and apply simple business rules without effort, also you create complex and logic-driven forms using OOTB SPARK functions, JavaScript, jQuery and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). Using SPARK you decide the information your business needs and use a SPARK's controls, tools, bult-in functions, rules and features to design and update forms to your exact specifications.

Hi, we have been using Forms Designer (older version) and Plumsail Forms from Plumsail.com, as well as other products from the same company as Plumsail Actions and Plumsail Documents, and most recently the Dashboard Designer. Just a note, I do not get any commission recommending this. We are just extremely happy with these products and their support is awesome. What we like the most, is when we are not finding out something in JavaScript, css or other they send us code snippets that usually solve our issues.

 

We migrated most of our Infopath solutions to this solution for the past two years.

 

It is easy to use and not that expensive. best of luck.

Hi Craig,

Qdabra Forms Viewer and Designer are as-is replacements for InfoPath templates and data files. They are SharePoint apps that work with the existing InfoPath formats (XSN and XML). You can configure a library to open InfoPath forms in Forms Viewer. It takes a few minutes. Forms Viewer is per tenant and usage based. Most forms can be configured in minutes to open, so time and money can be saved on conversion costs. And, the forms will work in Modern UI, Teams, and can be upgraded to use multi-factor authentication and a responsive CSS for mobile users.

 

We provide these apps for a very low cost because our primary business is consulting, i.e. building biz process automation solutions for customers. 

 

We have tens of thousands of daily users processing forms using Forms Viewer and it's been in the app store for years. Unfortunately, we are really bad at marketing...

 

Let me know if you want a demo.
