I am wondering whether or not it is possible to utilize workflow with several InfoPath forms (library) and whether or not this is something workable.
I'm opting for splitting out into multiple InfoPath forms because of the length. Creating one multi-step/wizard InfoPath form was getting cumbersome. And I didn't want to burden the user with one large form (even though broken into steps); of course I could have gone this route and just set up some rules to point the user to the next step they didn't complete - but again this was getting overly complex. Also I don't want users to actually see the form library. Finally, I only want the user to do this once - I don't want them to go and create more than ONE instance of a form.
So I was thinking of using workflows, but I don't know whether or not I actually need to or can in this scenario.
I am thinking of creating a workflow that would have steps linking to each individual form. Maybe have a webpart with a list that says these are the steps you have to do (Step 1, Step 2, Step 3). The list would just have a completed column (yes, no, in progress). If no/in progress then leave the "Step 1" on the webpart. If yes, then move on to the next form, etc.
I also imagine that I could "freeze" a form once it's completed by simply working with an approval methodology.
I've got a handle on the list idea with workflows, but how could I go about implementing the ability to open up the next form on the list?
