Captaris Workflow – Infopath duplicate field names

Filed under: Captaris — stephenmuller @ 10:21 am

I am doing more and more work with using Captaris Workflow, so I am going to start to write a bit about it.

At the moment I have being doing a fairbit of work with InfoPath, SharePoint and Captaris And I want to mention two points when doing this.

1) Always keep a copy of your InfoPath form before assigning it to the workflow. The reason for this is below.

2) When creating the fields in your InfoPath form make sure that you do NOT use the names that Captaris add to the InfoPath data source they are

  1. GUID
  2. ModelID
  3. ProcessID
  4. TaskID
  5. XMLObjectID
  6. ProcessName
  7. ProcessView
  8. WorkflowNotes
  9. Status
  10. AutoClose
  11. CreateProcessView

Cause if you do your InfoPath form wont load any more and you cant do anything with it. Oh sorry you can delete it, but thats is about it. The error message you recieve is about a duplicate name conflicting with one of the above field names.

So guess what I had to re-do today. It wasnt a mickey mouse form either. Ah well my fault.
