Does anyone have a workflow example that uses an existing InfoPath template ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • design and implement a workflow in MOSS 2007 environment, I have VS2005, InfoPath2003, Sharepoint Designer 2007, SQL 2005. Ideally an example of using existing InfoPath template, with some approve/reject buttons to trigger workflow in Sharepoint with Email notice through outlook.

    Thanks in advance.

  •  What you are asking for (as it involves InfoPath) is hardly a "simple and good workflow example".

    So I'm amending the subject to be more specific.

    With your setup (and I would be VERY careful about having InfoPath *2003* on the same client machine as SPD 2007) you can have various different kinds of workflows.

    The very simplest would be one using the 3 step workflow that is one of the MOSS 2007 standard workflows.

    The next simplest would probably be one of the other standard MOSS workflows.

    Then using SPD's wizard to create a workflow is straightforward.

    Using VS 2005 to create a workflow is more powerful but isn't "simple".

    Adding InfoPath to the mix doesn't make things easier.....

  • Hi,
     

    To add Mike’s points, I would like suggest you to look at the topic: InfoPath Forms for Workflows (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms573938.aspx) and its subtopics.

     

    It may not resolve your issue directly, but it should be some good references to be started.
