Background: I have a custom list which I exported from 2007, and imported into 2010 and then rebuilt the form with Infopath 2010. This form has the ability to select from a dropdown of multiple potential emails which are auto-populated based on the entries in the form (they are all templates used to engage other groups). Currently, I have a button which can be pressed in the form directly from a browser which will submit the form to the main data connection - thus firing the workflow.
Problem: When you press that button, you have to close the form and open it again to make any modifications because you will get a save conflict error if you try to modify and save again.
Question: Is there a way to add a button which will allow me to directly fire a workflow from the infopath browser form, without saving the entry?
I have done quite a bit of research and have found some solutions, but none of them take into consideration the save conflict that will arise after submitting, and then attempting to edit the form again.
