In the source drop down list properties, you can specify what the display value and what the index value is. Typically it defaults to the Title as to the display value and the ID as the ID. Simply change it to Title. and it will pass the title to the other text box.

In my case I did an In place Content database migration from 2010 to 2013. It is working perfectly in 2010 but not in 2013. Since the URL changes after updating to new web application the URL changes. That is why you have to go look for the actual form in site content and copy the address and in 2013 give the correct link address.

The InfoPath client tends to cache the form definition, so even though you have published an update, users are still getting an older version. You could try incrementing the version number in the form template, by opening it in InfoPath Designer, going to File and then Form Options, and then on the Versioning tab increasing the version number. Also, make ...

Set a default value (right click the text box) and add your field to display. Make sure you select the field under ReceiveData, and do not set a field from another data connection. The magic happens under the button ...

It can easily be done with InfoPath. Add a unique validation rule for each field and as condition select your dropdown/options field "is equal to" whatever option you like: Add Rule -> New -> Validation. So instead of validating anything in SharePoint, you just validate in InfoPath.

(Assuming that you can edit an edit form or new form of a list or library) You will need to customize the form by using SharePoint Designer. Additionaly you'll need to add some Javascript that will contain the logic of the required fields.

The form will still be compatible, and the digital signatures will remain in tact. (see caveat at the bottom) Why? The user's form (an .xml file) contains no references to the form template's form id, so it's none-the-wiser. The form id is used, however, for caching purposes on the local machine. Your computer will check its cached versions of the form for ...

The easiest thing would be a calendar where everybody voluntarily fills in if they are in office or not. If other people are writing the attendance just add a people field where the inputters can ...

I've pushed my clients away from InfoPath, and use SharePoint Designer Forms. You can do custom development, leverage Bootstrap, AngularJS, Breeze, jQuery and any other tools that help you bridge the gap between idea and solution.

I specifically asked about this at Ignite this year as there was nothing that talked about the future in this space. Kashman dodged the question stating the group was going to make an announcement when ready. The stance I've seen most is to still use InfoPath. We are using it in our ventures into SPO.
