This week I have been building a largish InfoPath form. One of the requirements from the client was to let the user know that the form had been submitted successfully.
You can do this pretty easily with InfoPath using the built in submit to data connection:
Therefore the solution I went ahead with was a “Thank You View”.
The first step is to create your form, with your submit button. For this example I won’t be using the actual form developed for the project just an example, it looks like the following:
To this I have added a button called Close as shown below.
You now should have an operational form that switches when it’s submitted and then presents the ThankYou view, in case you get stuck I have linked a copy of the .xsn below. In the example I have removed the submit data connection, so you will want to add your own in for testing.
