InfoPath 2007 + Forms Services +Roles

Filed under: Infopath, MOSS — stephenmuller @ 10:21 pm

One of the best functions of Infopath is implementing Roles. These allow the InfoPath form to displayed differently (using views) to specific users or groups.

I have recently found out to my grief that Roles are not supported using Form Services! Views can be used but not in conjunction with roles… There is a work around that is not overly glamorous but it seems it will work and it was blogged on the Infopath blog

The link is http://blogs.msdn.com/infopath/archive/2007/01/10/implementing-roles-in-browser-forms.aspx

Im sure there was a good reason for it, as it knows the user who is logged on and can handle views..I am hoping it is a good reason but…

PS Love Form Services SharePoints playing field is getting larger.
