Create a “Save and Create New Item” functionality in InfoPath2010 Part2
In the last post, I showed you how to configure the form to enable “Save and Create New Item” using Infopath2010. In this post, I will show you some of the problems and solution with enabling this in the form. Once you have enabled this function in the submit option, the save button in the InfoPath top menu will have the same functionalities, this might be confusing to the user as it will work differently from other forms.
To fix it, you can hide save button at the top ribbon and create a new button on the form called “Save And Close Form”. Here are the steps:
1. Go to File–> Advanced form options –>Web Browser and then untick the “Show InfoPath commands in Ribbon or toolbar”
2. Drag a button and label the button as Save and close the form in the InfoPath form
3. Add the following rules to the newly created button. Submit data rule and close form rule.
4. Republish your form and you will see the form as below.
