InfoPath Form Status Field RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have an InfoPath Form with a field entitled "status".  It is currently a drop down menu that allows the user to select "Open" or "Closed".  The purpose of this field is to begin with the status of "Opened" when a new record is created in the list using the form.   After seven days, the item/record/form's status should be changed to "Closed".  I know I may need a calculated field or a workflow on the list, etc.  I am willing to try anything.  Thanks in Advance.

  • Using sharepoint designer workflow will be easier and compatible for future versions.

    • Create a status column as Single Line of Text with default value Opened.
    • then create a sharpeoint designer list workflow and add/change the actions as shown below...

    • Set the workflow start option on item creation.
    • Then Save ans publish the workflow.

    Hope this will help.
