New InfoPath content on the web



I wanted to take a moment to recognize the great work of the Microsoft writers and editors who have been cranking out InfoPath content over the last few months.  While we in the product team have clicked over into Office 14 mode, they have continued to serve customers by creating Office 2007 content – everything from video demos to highly technical developer content.  Here’s some of the content that has been released since RTM.  Thanks to Anneliese Wirth, Arsenio Locsin,  Amy Miller, Anthony Labriola,  Kelley Vice, Tonda Kiffin, David Longmuir, Roger Haight,  and Mark Roberts for getting this information into the documentosphere!

    Please develop a free InfoPath runtime.

    MS should buy http://www.infoscope.co.kr/eng/product/product.aspx and give it away. InfoPath will get very popular, it may even win the forms war against XForms and PDF.

    Any fixes to coincide with WSS sp1 release?  Publishing to WSS is buggy when you have a large number of columns published.  Causes garbage in site and form library column lists.

    Also, we’d love to hear from you on how to improve load time of forms with managed code.  Any tips from the experts would be much appreciated.

    Please InfoPath team, give us some hope!

    Hey, most people that have InfoPath get it from the higher-end Office suites. Why doesn’t MS create a standalone InfoPath Form Filler which does not let edit forms, only fill and submit them? Then InfoPath will be very popular.

    This, the NEWEST post by the InfoPath team in MONTHS… cmon guys.

    I’ve got some more InfoPath content to be shared. I’m recording a series of introductory demos to show the potential capabilities of InfoPath to people new to the program.

    The first four are recorded, but I need to increase awareness in order for people to actually watch them.

    They’re up on YouTube and MSN Video, and I’ve been posting them on my blog. Given that I’m still trying to make my name as an InfoPath person, I would be very grateful if you could make people aware of these.
