Our college has a training restaurant which is currently bogged down with an archaic bookings system (four-part carbon copy forms, daily emailing of excel spreadsheets, etc)
I've been tasked with putting a temporary solution onto our sharepoint system (which, much like my knowledge of Sharepoint is pretty basic). At the moment the suggestion is to simply throw the existing spreadsheet up or a calendar. I'm hesistant about this as I'm not sure it will provide any more functionality but given the very short time frame I have this might end up being the only option.
I would like to try and build a solution in SharePoint. I thought that if I started by building lists for customers, bookings, etc I could then pull the information into a webpart. Am I starting along the correct track or is this the wrong way to go about things?
I've tried googling for templates that might suffice but not come up with anything as yet.
The wonderful thing about lists is that you can use forms and workflows to populate them. There are some brilliant tutorials around this on SharePoint 365 | SharePoint for the masses as well as guides on branding, etc. If you can make it to any of the SharePoint User Group UK sessions you can also find some good folk their to share ideas too.
