InfoPath 2010 Demo: SharePoint Designer workflow to switch InfoPath views

In this InfoPath 2010 demo you will see how you can use a SharePoint Designer 2010 workflow to set the startup view in an InfoPath 2010 form.

The InfoPath 2010 solution shown in the demo video below combines the techniques discussed in recipes 73, 74, 77, and 80 from InfoPath 2010 Cookbook 2 with recipe 16 from InfoPath 2010 Cookbook 3.

In this InfoPath 2010 demo video, you saw that...

  • You can use a link on an InfoPath form stored in a SharePoint form library to start a SharePoint Designer workflow.
  • You can use a custom workflow initiation form, which is an InfoPath form, to select a value and pass it to a SharePoint Designer workflow.
  • A SharePoint Designer workflow can switch views in an InfoPath form, so that the form will load a particular view when it opens.
