The good: Socrata will create "Instant form" from a dataset. Instructions and a short how-to video are at https://training.kingcounty.gov/mod/page/view.php?id=97

The bad: the form it creates is not using our Bootstrap-based styling. You'll need to fix it by doing a bunch of find-and-replace in the HTML code.

The ugly: here are the changes you'll need to make. Your mileage may vary.
