InfoPath

Microsoft InfoPath is a software application for designing, distributing, filling and submitting electronic forms containing structured data. The product features a WYSIWYG form designer in which the various controls (e.g. textbox, radio button, checkbox) are bound to data, represented separately as a hierarchical tree view of folders and data fields. All the data stored in InfoPath forms are stored in an XML format. Secondary data sources can be built into the form or they can be accessed through an external data connection to SharePoint or a Web service.

InfoPath 2010 form submission is not saving to sharepoint 2010 site, and end user has no errors upon submission.  The .xml file does not get saved to sharepoint, how do you troubleshoot this?  I figured it was something like incorrect permissions to a site/library for the end user to save their files.  But I check an Identical user permission with someone that is able to submit and view their documents.  The user that does not work has identical permissions.  Its very strange, and there are no reported errors from the user...

Hello I am in search of a solution in SharePoint 2013 using javascript or a 2010 workflow,

 that calculates total time to resolve a help desk ticket during business hours 9 - 5, minus weekends and holidays and minus anytime clock was stopped, for example time that would not be counted against a technician because customer was unreachable.

Additional details:  If a technician places a ticket in hold status, time should not be counted against time to resolve.

thanks,

I originally built an InfoPath form with repeating tables for Employee Expenses, which works great, but this doesn't work on mobile. (We want to be able to use on mobile and take pictures of receipts). So I started over and I've built a Powerapp for employee expenses, and the data goes back to two SharePoint lists. One list is Expenses, which is the employee name, dates, status, etc. The other list is LineItems, which is each expense detail, which is then a Related Items web part on the default display form for the Expenses list.

I have searched everywhere for a solution that will allow me to have a field in the Parent list (Expenses) that will show a grand total of all of the related expense items (Line Items list). I need this to be a field to trigger an email (using Microsoft Flow) in the event the Expense total is more than $1,000.

Hi All,

I am trying to add  Javascript or JQuery in my Infopath form. I am looking for a workaround without any custom code. How can we refer a javascript file to an Infopath form.

I want to extend the tool tip duration in my form and I tried doing with XML as a secondary data source but it doesn't read my script or css file.

Any suggestions would be appreciable. Hoping for a reply soon.

We have a form set up with Sharepoint 2013 and InfoPath 2010.  We also have Oracle 12..
What is the best way to automatically get the information into an Oracle table on a periodic basis (nightly) or to have the ability of Oracle to link to it?

The catch is we are in a corporate environment and do not have access to the Sharepoint server, SHarepoint Designer or Internet Information Services.

Hello, I'm getting an error message from Sharepoint that states "Sorry, you don't have a license to use InfoPath Services".  We were under the impression that External users inherit the use rights of the SharePoint Online customer who is inviting them to collaborate.  Does anyone know why I would receive this message if the external user inherits rights?

I am trying to have outside users be able to view, and fill out (edit) a form / list made in infopath, and submit / save to the site list columns.I am using Office 365 (SharePoint Online), and have an InfoPath browser enabled form made from an edited custom SharePoint list on our site. When users 'outside of the organization' try to use it, they receive an error message: "Sorry, you do not have a License to use InfoPath form services, Please contact your help desk" - this is even logging in with Enterprise 3 accounts that have a license included. It seems only users within the organization are able to view it, even though my understanding is browser enabled forms should allow other invited users to fill out and submit. I have activated the SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection feature, and believe the permissions are set correctly.

Thanks for your time.

Using InfoPath 2013 with SharePoint Office 360, I want to create an item in a SharePoint list just ahead of creating an item in the SharePoint list for the form being displayed.  I am trying to create a Web services submit connection in InfoPath to do this.  I am uncertain of the url to use in the connection. Here are a few details:

1.  Main data connection is for List 1 in site A.
2.  The form displayed is for data in List A.
3.  When the submit button is pressed, I want to create a new item in List B, then create the item in List A.
4,  When I attempt to set up a submit data connection, I am using https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com/<site>/_vti_bin/<service>.asmx?WSDL.  That works when <service> is lists or webs, but then I don't see add item or anything similar.  And even if it did, how would it know which list to add the item to?

I can't readily locate services for Web services, and am still puzzled by not using a list name.  Is this kind of item creation even possible in InfoPath 2013?  (converting to PowerApps but need something right away).

I have an Infopath form submitting data to a SharePoint Online list. everything works as I want it to except one little thing.

When I select the three drop-down items, I have a rule (Screenshot attached) that puts the data into a text field below.

This works fine for one lot of three selections, however, I want to be able to add multiple selections to the textbox without deleting the previous entries.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can do this?

Edited:
I solved this by using string-length: concat(substring("Yes", 1, (string-length(myFields/LookupColA) > 0) * string-length("Yes")), substring("No", 1, (string-length(myFields/LookupColA) = 0) * string-length("No")))

Original:
I have an InfoPath form on a SharePoint list.  One of the cols in the list is a lookup col. I want to display "Yes" if the list's item is connected to the other list and "No" if it is not.

I used: concat(substring("Yes", 1, (myFields/LookupColA != 0) * string-length("Yes")), substring("No", 1, (myFields/LookupColA = 0) * string-length("No"))). The result is Yes even if no lookup was set for the item. I displayed the value and it is a number if the lookup was set and what appears to be null if not.

What should my formula be to work?

Hi Expert

I need your help to create a workflow and a form (using Infopath and SharePoint List )  for Leave request approval.

I need to apply a workflow/List/Infopath form that process like below:

1. After the user fill-out and save the Leave application form, it will automatically start the workflow.

2. Send a notification email to the APPROVER (e.g. Manager), then APPROVER will Approve or Reject the request.

IF Approved, it will automatically send a notification email to HR Department regarding the request.

IF Rejected, the requester will received an email of rejection.

Using SharePoint Designer 2013 to create a Worlflow.

Thanks in advance

In  repeating table in infopath 2013, I have a Drop Down list field named "Hours_Type" that has two selections "Telcom" or "Electrical". I then have another field name "Hours".What I would like to do is sum up the "Hours" field based on the "Hours_Type" field selection. So if the user creates a bunch of rows with "Telcom" in the "Hours_type field I will get a sum of of the "Hours" in a different field. If the users selects "Electical" in the "Hours_type" field I will get a sum of those hours in another field. Basicly trying to get the hours for each type in a mixed table. Not sure if I should use rules or formula in the field. Thanks

Hi,
I am currently using Infopath 2013 which is connected into a SQL server Db, My Infopath Form has three fields:

Start_Time - DateTime
Stop_Time - DateTime
Duration - Integer

I am having trouble referencing these fields in visual studio using VB as it doesn't seem to recognise these as actual fields within the Infopath Form as the Duration field just stays blank with no errors?

Basically i'm looking to do this as an After Change event set on Stop_Time:

Duration = DateDiff("s", Start_Time, Stop_Time)

Open in new window


Very very basic VB knowledge here so any help you can give me will be much appreciated.

Hi all Am working on SharePoint 2010. I have created a InfoPath form through list. I am trying to implement "Save and Continue" while the form is open and continue my work saving the information I have entered in the form. Everything works fine for the first click on Save and Continue. But when I try to do some changes and click on the "Save and Continue" it throws me the below error. " The form cannot be submitted. Save Conflict. Your changes conflict with those made concurrently by another user. If you want your changes to be applied, click Back in your Web browser, refresh the page, and resubmit your changes." Can some one suggest me on this. I am not a pro in InfoPath forms and trying to explore more and learn things. thanks all.

I need to make sure that if a particular value is set in a dropdown that a textbox has some text explaining why the other value is set.  It almost works.  What I did is as follows:
On the data tab,  I selected Submit Options and said to allow Perform custom action using rules
At that point the Forms Submit button was enabled and I added a rule as follows
If SomeDropDown has "SomeValue" and "RelatedTextBox" is not blank allow the submit.

It works in the sense that it won't save the form without the related text if the dropdown has "SomeValue", but it doesn't stick on the page with a message to fix it and just closes as though it is saving the data.  When I do enter "SomeValue" the form saves as expected.

What am I missing and how do I get the "error" condition to appear?

When starting to use infopath, the idea was to ensure that information was submitted so that only a selection of people can view the data on a database. The database is located on another folder that has to have access granted by IT. The issue is that no one but those who had access to the database folder could submit data. I have had to move the database into an accessible area which was not the reason I went along the infopath route.
Any help??
