Core Features...

skybow Classic Forms (also known as skybow Rich Forms) is an intuitive SharePoint list form editor that enables you to improve the logic and the layout of your classic SharePoint Forms. It offers cascading lookups, customized buttons with actions, repeating lists integration, tab controls and simple to use calculations and expressions.

Enhance Your SharePoint Forms

SharePoint Lists are great, they’re powerful and flexible. But sometimes they require more logical layouts to show or hide fields until they become relevant, organize fields into tabs, show related data from other lists within the same form, and customize the logic behind each action button.

Create Logical Form Layouts

Classic Forms provides you with a fully integrated design interface that enables you to organize fields, tabs, add Rich Text, and build logically actions all without code. We do all of this whilst maintaining the look and feel of the out-of-the-box lists. Of course, as with most form design tools, your data is stored in your lists and is not processed or stored outside of your tenant!

Use Intuitive Calculations & Expressions

Cascading Lookups, Hide Fields, Field Validation, Cross List Calculations, Actions, and Default values can all be performed easily. Being integrated into SharePoint means that we have the context of the list and environment variables to hand to help with your calculations.

Watch A Quick Overview

SharePoint List Forms that you find in SharePoint such as Contacts, Links, Announcements, Issue Tracking, and Custom Lists offer a responsive side panel which is great for both desktop, tablet and mobile use. However, sometimes you need to add some business logic to those List Forms. skybow Classic Forms enables you to design your form layout, add business logic, and configure actions on buttons without you needing to write code.

Award winning app...

In 2015 we won the Microsoft Office Award for Rich Forms.

1st Place in "Highest Performing SharePoint Add-In,” and for years now, skybow has been a Microsoft Silver Partner for Application Development.



Contextual Design Experience...

With some form designers, the design experience doesn’t have the SharePoint list context. skybow Classic Forms provides a design experience for your SharePoint List Forms where you have the context of the form you are customizing. You can test your logic with existing list items, build expressions using existing fields belonging to the list you are modifying, and test your changes without committing your changes to the list. Once you are happy, you can save the changes, and easily revert back to the original design if you need to.


Organize Fields Into Groups or Tabs...

Especially with larger forms it is usually necessary to be able to separate and arrange the fields on several columns or also in tabs. SharePoint lists the fields by default all in one column under each other, without the easy possibility to change the layout.
With skybow Classic Forms it is possible to arrange the individual fields in tabs, groups or tables. Rearrange them by drag'n'drop.


Field Configuration...

Use a powerful expression language to hide or disable fields and other controls based on dynamic conditions. Define default values for every field type or calculate its value.

Making fields required based on other inputs or conditions is easily achieved. Last but not least it's possible to validate form inputs to make sure it has the correct format.


Action Buttons...

skybow Classic Forms gives you the option to add action buttons or links anywhere on the form.

A powerful action builder allows you to add multiple actions to be executed on a single click and interact with the current item.

Using an expression every button can be made visible or disabled e.g. for a specific group of people or based on other conditions.

A list of predefined actions are:

  • Add, update, delete list item
  • Send mail
  • Generate documents
  • any many more...


Master-Detail Sublists...

Data relations made easy. Back in InfoPath this was called a Repeating Section.

Sublists or document libraries can be added on every form to show related data. They can be organized in tabs if needed. The assignment is automatically done when adding a new sub item.

Sublists can also be used on the master list to aggregate it's data such as count, sum, average, min and max value.

Form Load Actions...

You need to be something done on form load? skybow Rich Forms gives you the option to execute actions after the form is fully loaded.

With the same action builder as on the action buttons multiple actions can be executed one after the other e.g. to show a message, log the form opening or simply redirect somewhere else under certain conditions.


Cascading Lookups...

Lookup values from another list or library is essential for data normalization. skybow Rich Forms lookups can be filtered based on static values or dynamically on other form inputs. A simple filter builder will help you to get the values you need.


Rich Text Control...

With the rich text control it's possible to add any static text, link or image anywhere on your forms. The state-of-the-art WYSIWYG-editor makes it easy to add the content you need.

To hide it under certain conditions a dynamic visible expression can be added using the low code skybow expression builder.


Display the form on a site page or list view...

If you want to display a customized form on a site page or list view, this can be added using the included skybow form embedding web part.

This can be used e.g. to report a new IT incident directly on the intranet start page.



Export your form configuration to import it in another environment or simply from the NewForm to the EditForm/DisplayForm (or vice versa).

The export generates a .rff file which is HTML and adjustable where needed.
