I receive a warning message (sort of) in InfoPath 2010 when publishing my form to my SharePoint. The warning message goes like this:

Any user currently filling out the form in a Web Browser will lose their edits. You might want to notify your users that an upgrade to the form is imminent

May I ask how can I notify my users that an upgrade to the form is imminent?

Send out an email? :-/ – Pierreten Sep 10 '11 at 7:34
I am not sure if SharePoint allows sending email to many people that is associated to a particular form library if I need to notify them of a upgrade to the form - is it possible? – Wilson Tan Sep 12 '11 at 0:54

You could only really do this with administrator-approved forms as you can quiesce them (which means it stops new forms from being filled out and you would then just allow enough time from then to allow users to complete any forms). Here is how to do this:

Is there other ways for forms that is not administrator-approved? (e.g. those forms that submit to a form library) – Wilson Tan Sep 12 '11 at 0:53
No, you can only quiesce admin approved forms. – John Chapman Sep 12 '11 at 3:13
