I have created a SharePoint CRM tool that uses 3 content types - these are named General, Prospect and Account. The idea being that a new potential customer lead gets added to the database as a General record, then if it progresses to become a potential customer, we change the content type to Prospect. If it then becomes a customer, we change it to Account. This works when I use the default forms created by SharePoint - if I open a record, I see a Content Type drop down box at the top of the record where I can then change the record type (content type) between General, Prospect and Account as required - see highlighted bit in image below:
If I then customise the form in InfoPath, I do not get the Content Type drop down appear either within InfoPath, or the finished form. Here is what I have customised in InfoPath and on the right, there is no option to select Content Type as a field to add to the form:
And here is the end result once published to SharePoint:
Is there any way I can include the changing of Content Type within my custom forms?
