SharePoint – Online Computer Inventory

Nearly 5 years ago I converted the Outlook forms to an on premise SharePoint 2010 Foundation version

But now it’s time to migrate to Office365 – SharePoint Online !

Basically all of the scripting done in SP 2010 can be reused in the Online version.

Solution :

Step 1. I created a new Custom List in SP Online

With the exact same fields and field names as in SP 2010.

Step 2. I created the new SP Online Custom Forms

These where created from scratch again

Step 3. I migrated the JavaScript / JQuery Scripts

I adjusted the scripts where needed (very little efforts neededs)

Step 4. Tested the results

New Form :

When pressing Get Info, it will check if it can find the PC or Server in your network.

If the field is blank it will present an error message and the button will go RED.

In the other occasion the button will show GREEN.

Extra logic in the script will check disk Capacity and show RED if below 10 % free space.

Edit Form :

Using the EDIT form you can just refresh the data at all times, even if you make a remote VPN to your network.

GREEN means all data has been updated.

Display Form :

Once all Hardware is loaded you can have the bonus effect to have this info available using the SharePoint Mobile App.

So all the data is at your fingertips wherever you are.

Migrating and reusing this logic from MS Exchange Forms to SharePoint Online over more then 15 years, is very rewarding.

Isn’t that cool Smile
