I use SharePoint 2013. I built a custom InfoPath form with Workflow. It worked perfect until a few days ago when a problem emerged.

Every time I try to submit the form I get "Sending Data to the Server" message for about 15 minutes. The form gets submitted, but the workflow never starts.

I tried to republish the InfoPath form and the workflow, but it did not do any good. The rest of the forms I have are working fine, but I built them using SP 2010 platform.


  • do you have a load balancer in place? – Mike Feb 19 '15 at 20:02
  • no, we don't.Do you think it is necessary to have? – Yelena Feb 19 '15 at 20:59
  • does this happen to any other infopath forms, and how many servers are in your farm? – Mike Feb 19 '15 at 21:21
  • We have 3 servers. One frontend, one backend (SQL) and one Workflow/OWA server The issue happens with only one form. This form is the only form I created using SharePoint/InfoPath/Designer 2013 – Yelena Feb 19 '15 at 22:22
