What are SharePoint Custom Forms?

SharePoint Custom Forms are forms that integrate data into SharePoint from external sources such as Office 365, Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Dynamics. Custom Forms save time and reduce errors by suggesting the relevant data. This increases the user experience which in turn increases user adoption.

Introducing PerForm – SharePoint Custom Forms

SharePoint Custom Forms

Enterprise-grade interactive forms for SharePoint Online

PerForm integrates powerful, interactive forms seamlessly into SharePoint Online – simplifying the data capture process for your staff and external users.

Fully-integrated with SharePoint

Your forms aren’t simply embedded – they’re integrated seamlessly into the Modern SharePoint experience.

Data is drawn in from Office 365, and PerForm can connect to data sources like Dynamics 365 and Azure, too.

Custom SharePoint forms with collaboration

PerForm lets you share a form with as many people as your workflow requires, with progress being saved between sessions.

Role and stage-based permissions let you lock down fields depending on who’s editing the form, and what stage your process is at.

Works on any device

PerForm is fully responsive and works on any modern web browser – on the desktop, on a tablet or on a smartphone.

Your forms will work, regardless of the device they’re being used on, making forms work for office-based and field workers alike.

No extra licensing

PerForm doesn’t require any additional licenses – your existing SharePoint licences will cover everything.

You can even let external users use and submit forms with no additional licensing requirement.

Interactive components to easily capture key data

PerForm’s form components are created using Microsoft Office UI Fabric – the same toolkit Microsoft uses to build SharePoint. Your forms feel and act like they’re part of SharePoint, because they are part of SharePoint.

Text Box

Single and multiple-line text boxes, with validation as you type where a number or a link is required.

Date Picker

This intuitive control lets you select a date quickly and stores it in the correct format.


Our People field uses Active Directory to auto-complete names from across your Office 365 tenant.

Dropdown List

Lists can be pre-populated from any SharePoint taxonomy, or from an external source like Dynamics 365 or Azure.

Tabbed Layouts

Let you have multiple ‘child’ items on a page, with a summary tab calculated automatically in real-time.
