Take a list offline using SharePoint Workspace 2010

In this short video demo, Shirish Pulikkal from the InfoPath test team shows how you can customize a SharePoint list in InfoPath designer and work with the list offline in SharePoint Workspace.

The Scenario: A fictitious company Fabrikam wants to track assets in their lab using SharePoint list. They want to be able to track assets both in the online and offline case. Fabrikam has decided to use InfoPath to customize the list and SharePoint workspace to enable working offline with the list.

The Process: We start by customizing the form for the SharePoint list in InfoPath designer and add a secondary data connection to pull data from another SharePoint list. Then we publish the form back to the SharePoint list and sync it in SharePoint Workspace. Now we can create list items while working offline in SharePoint Workspace and items can be synced to SharePoint server when we get back online.
