Using the latest version of the harmon.ie app on an iOS or Android device, you can open InfoPath Filler forms from SharePoint using the Formotus InfoPath-compatible form filler app.
harmon.ie offers a secure way to access the XML files, on iOS and Android that are stored in a SharePoint library. Used together, harmon.ie and Formotus provide an elegant solution for managing and filling InfoPath forms on SharePoint from mobile devices.
This article demonstrates how to use harmon.ie with Formotus.
In this scenario we have taken an Incident Report form that was submitted to an Office 365 SharePoint library, and now we want to open it to fill it out.
In the harmon.ie app, you navigate to the SharePoint library where the Incident Report form has been saved. For the purposes of this demonstration, the SharePoint library is on Office 365, in the cloud on sharepoint.com.
The submitted form appears as a simple XML file:
Tap the document to open the Document Info page that displays the metadata about the document, including, the Author and date of creation and last modification, InfoPath form version, size, etc.
At this time, the document itself is not opened. You can open the document by using the Open option from the Actions menu (top right of page), or by tapping the Open icon at the bottom right of the page.
The following example shows the “open in” options available when you tap the Open button on the bottom right of the page.
Tap the formotus icon and your previously submitted form opens, displaying the XML file as the completed Incident Report form.
Follow these steps to install Formotus on your device to see how it works with harmon.ie:
