Existing Cost Transfer form was created in MS InfoPath then published to a document folder in the AP SharePoint sub-site. Users must have InfoPath installed on their local client to use the form. Currently, users complete the form in SharePoint, save to a .pdf file on their local drive, attach supporting documentation, electronically sign the document then upload to a document library in SharePoint.


PROPOSED TASK – Cost Transfer Form

1. Use existing form to create a web-based form. This will eliminate the need for users to have InfoPath on their client machine.
2. Create electronic signature fields (4 fields max) using Active Directory account to validate signature.
3. Form must have the ability to attach supporting documents (.pdf)
