So I followed a CBT Nugget instruction on setting up an InfoPath 2013 Form and getting it all connected to SharePoint 2013 so that it could be filled out by users via the browser and then set up an approval workflow behind it to start whenever a form was submitted.
All of that is working fine except for the Submission of the form. When you hit the submit button, it acts like it's doing something (it closes out the form) but there's no data saved anywhere. I did the data connection properly as far as I can tell from following the instructions in the video.
However, if I fill out the form and then hit Save or Save As, give it a title manually, then hit Save in that dialogue box and close out of the form, the data is now visible in my SharePoint library and my workflow is triggered accordingly (basically like it was submitted).
I tried setting the submit button up with rules and also with the basic submit button features, but I get the same results both times. Does this mean that the data connection is not correct after all? I've been googling this but I don't seem to be able to find someone with this same problem.
