I am working on Infopath 2007 and sharepoint 2010. I have created a form in Infopath designer.I have created a submit button on the form. The submit button is programmed to submit the form to a sharepint library. That was successful. However what i want to do now is submit the form to a sharepoint library and also send an email with the attached form to email recipients. Is that possible?
I have included contact selector in my form and it works fine to pull the name from company directory. I have linked the contact selector to sharepoint(I created the.xml file to get this established). I have 3 attributes to the contact selector
AccountType. I am guessing out of these 3 attributes AccountID picks up the email address. But when I try to retrieve information from
AccountID it gives me group/username and not the email address. So when I try to submit the form to this
AccountID it does not happen.
You have a couple of options for this:
- Once the form has been submitted, you can use either SharePoint designer or Nintex Workflow to send email
- if you do not mind using InfoPath form with Code behind then it can be done
You again have a couple of options:
- Use the getUserProfileByName web service to get the user profile. Then on form load set a fields value by filtering the email address using this in filter data Value[Name = "WorkEmail"]
- You can use workflow again to send an email to the user who has submitted the request
Hope it helps :)
