SharePoint Migration – InfoPath with modern and classic SharePoint Online sites – please clarify

We are migrating a large site collection from SharePoint 2010 to Office 365 SharePoint Online, starting with a single site (for testing purposes).

The site collection uses InfoPath forms quite heavily. We will eventually move all these InfoPath forms to PowerApps/Flow but for now, considering the goal is to first get off SharePoint 2010 entirely, we’d like to be able to do that part at a later stage.

  1. Is it true that InfoPath forms are not supported by the Modern Site experience and thus must use the Classic site experience? (or is this an assumption I have made?)

  2. If I create sites in the Classic experience initially, what effort will it take to modernise them at a later stage?

Alternatives for InfoPath forms?

I’ve made some InfoPath forms, but have run into a number of problems when trying to put them on SharePoint, getting an error saying they are not “editable in browsers” despite being “browser enabled.” If I can’t fix this problem, I’m looking for alternatives (recognizing it would take more work to transfer all the stuff to the alternative). Essentially I just want something that can be filled out for free, but has good functionality in building the form. I’m willing to pay, just don’t want my users to pay. Any tips?

How to call a SOAP GetListItems service on SharePoint InfoPath form?

I want to sort column alphabetically from the SharePoint list’s column on InfoPath form drop-down, on the basis of two fields on form load. I am trying to call the SOAP web service on InfoPath form data connection by http://sharepoint.dev.com/_vti_bin/Lists.asmx?

On list name I have applied the list name, on the view name I have added the lists correlation id. What should be the other remaining parameter(query, viewFields, rowLimit, queryOptions, and Web Id) and How I can pass the parameter in sample column in this? enter image description here

Sending item from list webpart to infopath webpart

So on a page, I have 2 web parts.

  • A list which contains some items.
  • And a InfoPath web part.

I would like to send the items from the list to the Infopath viewer but I don’t know how to achieve this.

Right now I’m trying to use “Connections” option. So from the list I tried using the “Send Row of Data To” and then I selected “content type“.

I’m not sure what else I could select for provider name. And I left blank the other box. I tried several different combinations but I don’t know how or if it is possible to do.

When I tried that a select column appeared on my list. But if I press it nothing happens. My Infopath web part does not show item info just blank everywhere. Am I doing something wrong?

EDIT

Oh wow i got it to work with one single field. Is this how it works? You can select one single field and that’s all? I mean how useless this is xD I can’t understand SharePoint philosphy. Am i doing wrong or it’s the way we use this thing?

InfoPath 2013 SharePoint Online Switch Views New., Manager, Admin

I have a web browser infopath form that has 3 views. Default view is the New once it is submitted an email is route to the Manager (view=Manager) based on permissions the view should show the Manager view with the additional fields. The last view is ADMIN it has all of the fields from the first two views so at anytime they can review the form. I need to have it when the Manager clicks the link in the email it takes them to the Manager view and only shows that information. I need to have the same ability for the email that is also sent to the Admin of the new request to show the Admin Form. Regardless of the email when ever the User, Manager or Admin view the form from the library they are only seeing the view that matches the role.

I have tried several solution but nothing is working. I do not want to use a button to change views I want it to be associated to either the Group Permissions assigned in SharePoint, I already have the data connection set up or any other method suggested.

I have seen where no matter what the rule setup it is not allowing the Admin to see the all up view or the manager to see their view.

I really need help getting this work.

Thank you in advance. Dorinda
