InfoPath and SharePoint

Is anyone using InfoPath with SharePoint?
Dear Anonymous, we are starting to see that a number of project offices are now starting to use InfoPath with SharePoint. Sharepoint has a forms library. You can submit forms from infopath into a form library and autopopulate columns in for quick and easy referencing. You can also add other fields outside the infopath form but inside the form library to express statuses on individual forms. You also gain all the benifits of sharepoint with your forms. This means alerts, list views, sharepoint search, ect... Submiting to a form library makes it so that you don't have to use sql if you don't want. It also makes it so that you don't necessarily have to open up infopath in order to view data from an infopath form. Viewing the forms in a list format like a form library provides is so much nicer than viewing a folder. Being able to sort, filter, and group by any column in the form makes for much easier and quicker searching. Cheers. -- Mark Perry, VP of Customer Care, BOT International
