This week’s cool InfoPath form is a browser form used to run a bracket tournament at Microsoft. The form uses filtered dropdowns to let users make their picks for NCAA March Madness 2010, and uses conditional formatting to show correct and incorrect picks as the tournament progresses. There’s also a printable view that shows the full bracket on one page, making it easy to print your bracket and show it off to your co-workers.
The form contains several data connections to SharePoint lists containing participants and results, which means that updating the results is as simple as editing a SharePoint list item, and doesn’t involve changing the form at all.
