Link to Infopath Form web filler RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys,

    Does anyone know how link to sharepoint so that it opens an Infopath 2010 form through the web interface as opposed to the desktop client? If u use the Encoded Absolute URL in my workflow emails it tries to download / open the document through my desktop client.

  • You have to use the full Forms Services URL.  OPen a browser form, copy the whole URL, and use that.  Basically, you need the part that tells it to open in the Browser and the XSNLocation attribute, but the Source attribute is also very important.  My recommendation is to copy the entire thing and go with that.  Then, if you need to make it dynamic (i.e. in a workflow), then substitute the XmlLocation value with the Encoded Absolute URL variable.

    What you're using is the direct link to the XML file, which causes the exact behavior you described.
