Is there a way to extract an infopath view through SharePoint? Right now, I'm using promoted fields to generate an email, but it would be great if I could just pull the whole view into an email.

May I ask why you would want to do that when you could just attach the whole form to an email? – Fox Feb 10 '12 at 7:16
We use InfoPath as browser-based forms, and promote most of the fields we use to SharePoint. Our current e-mail notifications include property promoted fields from within SharePoint, as the email is generated from a SharePoint Designer Workflow. Ideally, I'd be able to pull the infopath view through the Workflow. – Eric Di Bari Feb 10 '12 at 16:56

DISCLAIMER: Never Tested but worth a try.

I have found an msdn blog, whcich could be used to paste the InfoPath form inline with the email, but if you are switching views of your InfoPath form, I am not sure how it might result.
