Dynamic Form - Best Option?

Hi All,

 

I'm currently looking into automating some forms in our department but having some issues understanding which would be the best way to come up with a solution. 

 

I've had a play with Flow, PowerApps, Form and InfoPath to find an apropriate solution but I feel im over thinking the process?

 

I basically want to create a form which when submitted can trigger a chain of events via flow, create a calendar event > Send an email based on the options selected within the form > Notifcation process etc.

 

Can anyone shed some light on the best way to create a form with dynamic data which can be used within Flow?

Any of the options that you mention will work, but I would suggest staying away from InfoPath unless you absolutely can't do without it.

 

Generally speaking (depending on where your data is stored), a Flow can run anytime you create a new record or when that data is updated.  Triggering the Flow, in most cases, is totally independent of the interface used to submit the data.

 

Most people would suggest using PowerApps rather than InfoPath in that InfoPath has a limited life and will be phased out.
