Hi.. I have a small problem with InfoPath.

My scenario is that users fill out the form from a shared location. When they have finished they hit a Button.. "Send to IT" This is done with a MainSubmit action that sends an email.. IT then recieves this form, fills out more options and sends the form back to the user and the HR department by hitting a new action button.. "Return"

This works fine.. After this we save the file manually and uploads it to sharepoint.

My issues is that I would like to save to sharpoint in the same action when we send the form back the user and to HR.

The email connection or the sharepoint connection works fine on their own, however im unable to do both at the same time.

Thanks
/Jan

You need to switch the button type from just Submit to Rules and Code.

Then you can add mulltiple actions, which can be 2 submits or what ever you need.

I make all of my buttons rules type so that I can have as much logic as I want. I think this is the issue but let me know.
