Infopath view to create additional list items
Posted on 2014-09-25
Hi All, I have an infopath form that contains a repeating table; inside the repeating table are a bunch of fields that are driven from a sharepoint list. it's set up to let the user provide multiple examples that fit into redefined categories, those categories have a "score" that is used to determine the criticality. for example:
Category = Technology
Sub Category = System Issue
Description = user enters free form text here
for each additional example the user can just insert an item into the repeating table. the fields category and sub category are used to calculate the criticality of the example which is then averaged across all of the examples provided (it sounds more complex than it is...).
I need the ability for a user to create an adhoc category and assign it a score that can be attached to a specific field in my repeating table. I have a button in the repeating table that states "Create new category" when they click this i want a dial log box, or view, to pop up to collect information about that category. I'm having trouble taking the results of that information in my view and entering it into the specific row of my repeating table.
any suggestions would be much welcomed!
