I have a SharePoint List where I need one set of users to use one form and another set to use another.

I've enabled multiple content types and built out my two separate forms, how do I publish and how do users differentiate between what form they see?

With SharePoint Designer you can specify forms for every content type. Navigate to your list (in SPD) and click the InfoPath button in the ribbon.

and how do users differentiate between what form they see?

They differentiate by selecting the different content types. In the list, they can select the content type in the drop-down list under Items -> New Item. You could also create a direct links to new form of the content type.

  • Thank You - One of my forms is for managers to edit existing items, created using my first form. Is there a way of enabling selection when editing the item in InfoPath? – Quinn Aug 9 '16 at 11:41
  • So while editing an item you want to launch a different form? Or what do you mean with "enabling selection when editing"? – wheeler Aug 9 '16 at 11:50
  • Sorry to be clear - One group of users will create a list entry using form A. I need another group of users to edit that list item using form B. Is there a way users can select what form to use when editing an existing item. Having multiple pages on the same form isn't an option for me unfortunately. – Quinn Aug 9 '16 at 12:11
  • Hm.. You want to have different edit forms for one content type? I don't think that this is possible. Creating different sections in your InfoPath form and hiding/showing them conditionally is no option? – wheeler Aug 9 '16 at 12:32
