Per that same article, Microsoft has indicated they will support InfoPath 2013 until 2023 and that they are working to provide migration guidance from InfoPath into whatever successor technology or technologies based on Office and/or SharePoint may take its place. If you have a 3-5 year time horizon, I wouldn't rule out InfoPath completely. It would seem ...

I would recommend to take a look at Nintex Forms. It replaces InfoPath Forms Services to some extent, Nintex Forms is a web based designer that enables forms to be created within SharePoint. The following products are currently available: Nintex Forms Nintex Forms for Office 365 P.S. Disclosure, i do not work at Nintex company

In InfoPath Designer, open the form template and go to File > Form Options > Property Promotion. Remove the field and publish the form. Then add the field to the promoted properties and publish the form again. The view will show the column as empty, but the previously entered values still exist in the form. Just opening and closing the form will make the ...

You can use Query String parameters to send to InfoPath form and if you want no code solution, you can use Query String (URL) Filter Web Part.. Following blog shows how: How to Pass Querystring data into an InfoPath Form If you want to access them in code, you can access like: // URL: http://www.foo.com/bar.xsn?xyz=1 public void FormEvents_Loading(object ...

One idea can be to store the data in a List (maybe temporarily) and on InfoPath form make a connection to this List, get data from there.. If you have multiple entries in List and need to identify which one you should pick, you can still use QueryString approach to send the List Item Id..

I have never had success exporting the files and importing or adjusting the CSS so this is what I do. I make all the fields not required, eliminating the red dashed border and put an asterisk by the required fields. Then I create rules to disable a custom save/submit button until all the required fields are not blank.

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.

Are you using Claims Based Authentication? My guess is that you are and you need to have that web service converted into a UDCX, edit the UDCX and add the authentication to point to a Secure Store Service Target Application ID. First create a SSS Target Application, that has access to the web service (generic account), then add the group of users to the ...

Create a list in SharePoint, edit it in Datasheet view mode, create the first item with number 1, then drag and drop the little square down (as you would do in Excel). This will quickly create all the numbers you need. Then, go to Infopath, add a datasource to retrieve data from the aforementioned list, and bind it to a listbox. Easy ;)

If you're new to SharePoint development, I can understand your struggling to understand its development model. Responding to UI events by "calling C# code" is possible only with custom webparts or application pages, as no inline-code is allowed in SharePoint Designer by default. You should really first try to determine if what you think will require C# code ...

You mention that the form is stored in http://sharepoint/travel, but the error mentions the form residing in http://sharepoint/services. It could be that /travel and or /services are (in) different site collections using explicit managed paths. Get a listing of all Site Collections in that Web Application and see if this is the case.

InfoPath includes a Form Template that can feed directly into a database. It can also publish the results to XML files, one per response. I think SP is required for the web forms functionality, but InfoPath filler can be used to fill the forms but not change them.

I solved it, the problem was that I was using a windows 2008 server and hasn't the desktop experience enabled, it seems that this enables webdav or so.

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 ...

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 ...

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.

Current view dropdown from ribbon can be hidden through current view created in InfoPath. See this link and follow the steps: http://ovaisashraf.blogspot.in/2011/02/hide-current-view-dropdown-from-ribbon.html Note: It will hide only current view dropdown i.e. other views will have view dropdown in ribbon.

Actually people picker control don't work like this, you can bind people picker control to SharePoint security group which contains these four users.. But obviously you can't create a new group each time you want the user to select.. Best is to provide a custom selection view within InfoPath, once selected you can show the selected people in a text box..

(Reporting Services would probably be simplest as it can connect to multiple SharePoint lists - particularly if you want a hard copy option.) - not sure this is good in O365. Another alternative could be to use SPD to create a new data source and combine the three lists. This would essentially give you all the columns in one list view but the XSLT to ...

Are you using InfoPath Edit form or InfoPath Form (published as linked to Content Type, in a Forms Library) as they are behaving differently: InfoPath Edit form - changing fields in either underlying list would require close and reopen the form - which would then ask to refresh. Or change the form and upon republishing would update the list. InfoPath in ...

I have handled this two separate ways. I used to set up an infopath webpart on a wikipage to only house the form and make the library hidden. In 2013, I do a two library approach. The first a library that submits the form. Then it triggers a workflow to copy it to a secure library and delete it from original library. There may be better ways of ...

Since you are coming from Windows Forms environment, I will tell you that Visual Studio way is the bestest way (AFAIK).. Since in Windows Forms you have Forms objects, similarly in SharePoint if you create Visual Web Parts; you have ascx files of the User Controls on which you can drag and drop controls and also you can write Page Events or Control Events ...

AFAIK, such a scenario could only be achieved with JavaScript and query parameters fed into the URL to create a new document. The DIP as such can be edited and customized with InfoPath, but InfoPath out-of-the-box does not have any tools or methods to look at, or interpret, query parameters that are included when the form is opened. This can be done with ...
