Creating a Routing System Using InfoPath and Designer Workflows
Microsoft has announced that InfoPath 2013 will be the last version of the product, but it is still supported in Office 365 and looks to be available in the upcoming SharePoint 2019. While it is an older technology, the combination of InfoPath forms and SharePoint Designer workflows is still a powerful combination. In a later chapter, we show how to build forms with PowerApps. These will get additional capabilities and will likely eventually replace InfoPath. This example comes for a request for a way for the cadet squadrons at the Air Force Academy to route approvals through the appropriate chain of command. Before we created this solution, documents and approvals were emailed from person to person, with no good way to check the status to see where it might be stuck.
