InfoPath demo video transcript:
Here I'm in SharePoint 2010 and I've already published two InfoPath form templates as well as a SharePoint Designer 2010 workflow to SharePoint.
In this scenario we've got two form libraries: One form library called ProjectInfoLib and another form library called ProjectApprovalLib. The intention is that whenever we create a project form in the ProjectInfoLib form library and then save it, a corresponding project approval form is automatically generated in this ProjectApprovalLib form library, and the form is then linked to the project form that we created.
So if I go back to the ProjectInfoLib and add a project; I'll call it "My first project"; and then we save it to the form library and close it, a workflow should kick off. It has already kicked off and completed. And then when we go to the ProjectApprovalLib we see that a project approval form has been created for that project, and as you can see, it has been linked to the project form we created.
I can repeat the process and create a second one: "My second project". And then we save it. And then again, a corresponding project approval form should have been created. That's this one. And you can see it has been linked to the second project form.
