Default naming for an infopath form site content type on sharepoint

Last Modified: 2012-08-13
I have a site content type for each employee's infopath timesheet form. So in the form library, they select new, and then the content or form type with their name on the content type. After they fill it out, they save it. The problem is, I need them to save it with their name and the date reflected in the form save name.

so for example, Fred Jones sees a Fred Jones timesheet after selecting the new button in the iibrary. He fills it out and then goes to save it (or submit it? which would be better?). I want the default to be FredJones06/09/10.xsn.

Can i do any sort of thing like this?? Or should it be done through some sort of submit process rather than a "save as" process? I'm open to any ideas. Thanks
