Collect Data then Output to List/Database RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am sure this is a simple solution, but I am limited on time and am seeking a solution quickly so I hope someone might be able to point me in the right direction.

    I am looking to setup a Sharepoint site where I can collect data from users and then have the data submit/output to a list or database. The database can also be saved on the sharepoint but I am trying to split the two to make the data submission easier.

    I have a list in Sharepoint set up with all of the columns I want, similar to an Excel format but am not sure where to go from here. I have been seeing differing information on whether it is best to use a workflow, infopath or custom list and not sure which is the quickest and easiest way to achieve this task.

    Can anyone make a recommendation on the easiest way to collect simple data from a user and have it output to a database?

  • SharePoint has the ability to create custom lists.  The lists have their own forms NewForm.aspx, and EditForm.aspx. 

    I will never go so far as to call SharePoint a database, but it can retain content in column & row fashion.
