Outlook updating organization forms
Availability of forms If you want users to fill out Info Path e-mail forms and submit the data back to you, and the form's associated form template is not stored in a shared location that your users can access, you can include the form template with the Info Path e-mail form by clicking the Include form template option in the Mail Options task pane.
The task pane appears when you forward an Info Path e-mail form or reply to it, or when you send it by clicking Submit on the form.
If the recipients have an earlier version of Info Path installed, and the form contains backward-compatible features, they can save the attached form file and open it by using the earlier version of Info Path.
Note: When the Info Path e-mail forms that you send to others are filled out and sent back to you, you can review the data from those forms in various ways in Office Outlook 2007.
For out sample help desk application I chose the "Post" form used by Outlook to post to public folders.
Forms, as show below, can contain multiple tabs and have two "Pages", that is two forms of appearing, one when composing a new message, "Compose Page" and the other one for reading the message after it had been composed, the "Read Page".
Typically some attributes would become read-only in the "Read Page".
If you drag a field from the Field Chooser, a label and a textbox fields are automatically created in the dialog box.
To turn Info Path e-mail forms on or off, in the Options dialog box in Office Outlook 2007, click Advanced Options on the Other tab, and then select or clear the Enable Info Path E-Mail Forms check box in the Advanced Options dialog box.Alternatively, you can send a read-only version of the form.Installation prerequisites for recipients If the recipients of your Info Path e-mail forms do not have Microsoft Office Outlook 2007 and Microsoft Office Info Path 2007 installed and configured to use Info Path e-mail forms, they will receive an e-mail message that contains an HTML representation of the default form view, and an Info Path form will be attached to the e-mail message.Check this page regularly for the latest information.The Zetafax Client can be rolled out using Group Policy for both updates and new installs.
