Support for Electronic Forms in Office 2007 (2/4)

November 20, 2006

The 2007 release streamlines data collection through integration between InfoPath 2007 and the core applications. Electronic forms can be presented as standalone forms in the InfoPath 2007 client or in the browser, imported into Groove 2007 workspaces, embedded in Document Information Panels and Task Panes, or embedded in Outlook 2007 e-mail messages so colleagues can complete forms without leaving the familiar Outlook environment. With InfoPath 2007 and Microsoft Office InfoPath Forms Services, organizations can also extend electronic forms solutions outside the corporate firewall, enabling customers, business partners, and mobile or remote users to complete electronic forms using many different Web browsers and mobile devices.

Features that take advantage of InfoPath 2007 forms include:

·     E-Mail Forms. The ability to embed an InfoPath form within an Outlook 2007 e-mail message provides a fast, efficient way to collect information.

·     Developer enhancements. Enhanced development capabilities enable developers to display richer content, including InfoPath forms, within custom Task Panes.

·     Document Information Panel. Support for InfoPath forms within the new document Information Panel enables organizations to define custom document properties and to initiate business processes from within a document based on those document properties.
