How to publish a form as Web browser based


In the previous post, InfoPath Forms 2013-Part 3, I have demonstrated how to use the various controls in an InfoPath form. In this article, we will explore how to publish a form as Web browser based.

Web Browser Based Forms

InfoPath Forms Services is a server technology that allows users to fill out Microsoft Office InfoPath forms by using a Web browser. Users don't need InfoPath installed on their computers to fill out an InfoPath form, nor are they required to download anything extra from the Web.

First, we need to publish the form as “Publish form to a SharePoint Library”.

Here, enter the location of your SharePoint or InfoPath Forms Services site.

In this wizard, enable two options:  

  • Enable this form to be filled out by using a browser.
  • Administrator-approved form template (advanced)

Specify a location and file name for the form template.
