InfoPath will be supported till 2023 as Microsoft says. Also they are looking forward for a more responsive design supported tool. Which may come with SharePoint 2016. So feel free to use it. They will not easily drop it all the way given there are many services that use .xsn file format such as Biztalk.

=IF( OR(INT(A)+INT(B)+INT(C) = 3, INT(A)+INT(B)+INT(C) = 0), "Accepted", "Not Accepted" ) This should work. FYI: The formula's used by calculated columns are Excel formula's and you can open a blank excel sheet to play with them :)

Using Infopath form it's not possible to make it 100% responsive. All I was able to find was this 2007 article. Also Microsoft is retiring InfoPath and 2013 is the last version of its kind. You should change your approach from InfoPath to a ListForm, and use that along with JSLinks etc. to make it fully responsive.

This can be done using Rules in Infopath. There is 3 different types of rule that you can use, Validation, Formatting and Action. They are accessible from the top ribbon tab "Home" and are found almost in the right corner. Add a formatting rule on the field you wanna hide and set the condition to be something like Yes/No Field is equal to True / False ...

Fired up Wireshark and looked at the XML coming back from SharePoint and saw how to do this. Basically you just set the Field's value to a string with each choice separated by ;# for example if Choices 1 and 3 were selected: <Field Type="Choice" BaseType="Text" Name="Process">;#Choice 1;#Choice 3;#</Field>

InfoPath may be discontinued by Microsoft but in the official statement, they make it very clear that they will keep supporting InfoPath for many years to come. So it's up to you to decide whether to use it or not. How long will InfoPath be supported? The InfoPath 2013 client will be supported through April 2023. InfoPath Forms Services for ...

It depends on how you published it. Did you publish it as a content type? In that case you can see it when you add a new item to a list or library that includes the content type.

I've had this requirement before, and each time I stray away from InfoPath and tell my users the only reasonable way is to use customized SharePoint list forms, edit/display/new. But in InfoPath, you would have to write code-behind in the InfoPath form, making it administrative approved. In the code, you would, upon submission of a document attachment, use ...

Then get the field collection and get the particular field by name and if it's the required one: update it. Kindly find the code sample below class Program { static string Path = ...

You will need to promote those columns by re-publishing the form. As you step through the wizard for publishing your infopath form a dialog appears where you can choose which columns you want to appear as promoted columns on the SharePoint list. You can see the steps here in this blog post: ...

Well there are two types of infopath data. First type is non-promoted infopath fields. These are fields in your form that are NOT promoted to SharePoint. The data for these fields live ONLY in the XML file. The second type are promoted infopath fields. These are fields that are in the form that you HAVE decided to promote to SharePoint as columns. ...

I've done something similar with Nintex, allowing for the form to receive attachments, then using workflow tools, extract the base 64 encoded attachment and load it into a document library with a web service operation, then update the form xml to remove the attachment. Perhaps though with a form rule, once the field is assigned that determines the name, you ...

This is possible with rules. Please see the image below. Add an action to switch the view.

I've found a solution (via a page on Delphi-ts.com which I had to get from the wayback machine), but it's not ideal (from my novice standpoint), as it requires addition of C# code to the form which 1) means I've had to recreate the form in a forms library, not an item list and 2) the form has to be uploaded via sharepoint central admin, not published direct ...

Activated "Team Collaboration Lists Feature" and it works now.

You are certainly doing things the hard way. (Then again, I don't know your unique requirements.) Permissions should be placed on content (sites, libraries, lists, etc.). Views are generally sub-sets of content, not pages. Changing view permissions on content will not change the content permissions. Simpler, if you must do this, to make 4 pages (with views, ...

The first thing to do is to check whether the email is actually being sent. Go to your Exchange server and enable queue logging to track mail passing through the system. Next, fill out the form to send to a known account you have access to and click submit. Go back to the Exchange server and check the queue log. If your email arrives in the next minute or ...

The good thing with using ASP.NET is you can write your own logic and customize it whenever needed with much flexibility. It is relatively difficult than using InfoPath as we have to be concerned about the page life-cycle a lot. Also you can manage it easily with asp:view controllers when a large amount of components are there. (In your case 300) But on the ...

I am not involve in IP form designing but i know one of our department create IP form with tons of fields which slow down their site collection. Personally, As we know, this is last version of IP so i think better to design in ASP.net or access form. Check this post, they discuss couple of limitation. Disadvantages of implementing InfoPath in SharePoint ...

I believe you will have to use a string to represent the number, and a formula like this: concat(substring("0", 1, 2 - string-length(field)), field) The formula needs adjustment if you desire multiple leading zeroes. For example, concat(substring('00', 1, 3 - string-length(field)), field) should work for 2. And so on.

I don't work with approval workflows but I will just throw this out and hopefully someone else can expand upon it. When a form or document is opened by an Office product its put into a locked state to keep someone else from making changes to it while you are editing it. Generally the lock goes away as soon as you close the form other times it gets stuck and ...

You need to define a list view with a filter on the "claim completed" field. Create a new view or edit an existing view. Scroll down to the Filter section. In the dropdown "Show the items when column" select the "Claim completed" column. in the next dropdown select "is equal to" in the text box below type "no" Save the view. The view will now show ...

I actually thought this would be easy when I read the question -- but doing a not equals is much more difficult in InfoPath! The best way I can figure out how to get it to work assumes that you're working on 2010 or later -- because you can just use a web service... I'll show an example using a REST Web Service: You want to create a new data source by ...
