For years, InfoPath was a trusted tool for creating dynamic forms within organizations. Its user-friendly interface and seamless integration with Microsoft SharePoint made it a go-to solution for data collection and management. However, as technology evolves, so too do the tools we rely on. And Microsoft’s decision to deprecate InfoPath leaves many organizations scrambling to find alternatives.

Microsoft announced the deprecation of InfoPath back in 2014 with the intention to cease further development and support. While mainstream support for InfoPath 2013 ended in July 2021, extended support is set to conclude in July 2026. This timeline underscores the urgency for organizations to transition away from InfoPath and explore alternative solutions.

Challenges of InfoPath Deprecation

With the sunsetting of InfoPath development and support, organizations face several adjustment challenges. First, there’s the issue of compatibility, as existing InfoPath forms may become obsolete as Microsoft ends support and updates. This leaves organizations vulnerable to security risks and functionality limitations.

Next, there’s the daunting task of migrating existing forms to a new platform. This process can be time-consuming and resource-intensive, requiring careful planning and execution.

Finally, there’s the challenge of finding a suitable replacement that meets an organization’s needs without disrupting workflows.
