Abstract: I had to create a simple InfoPath form in 2007 which anonymous users can access and send by email.
What you need: InfoPath 2007, MOSS 2007, Admin Rights to the CA Central Administration
1. Steps to wallow anonymous access to your site
Steps to allow anonymous access for users to submit InfoPath web-enabled forms:
1) Login to Central Administration on your SharePoint 2007 installation
2) Select Application Management
3) Select authentication providers
4) Select the zone that you would like to activate anonymous access
5) Select the checkbox under the anonymous access to enable it and click "Save"
Create the form: don't forget to mark the checkbox: Enable browser compatible features only
Under Form Options: click on the Submit, but deselect Save and Save as.
We don't want the anonymous users to save the forms in the form Library.
We just want that he fills out and sends it by email.
Leave this settings as it is: don't change the Security Levels.
But as you can see you can you have different Options here
Restrict, Domain and Full Trust Levels
Under the Submit Options, how I configured them, you can send E-mail just click on add and indicate the email address.
You could also add rules and more…
Now you can publish your form
Save the document first
Chose to create a new document Library, or use an existing one
Now you can click open in Browser. This is the Form your users will see.
You will be surprised that the Save and Save as Buttons are visible. I had to create a publish a new form,
where I forgot to disable this. Sorry!
This is the URL your anonymous users must use when accessing the form: make it available over a link
This is the Forms Library: Orders, which has been created for you
Click on Form Libraries Settings
And then permissions for this form library
Than edit permissions
Than you can click again under settings: anonymous access
If it is grayed like this, anonymous access has not been enabled in the Central Administration
If you have done it, it will look like this
Now the Glue! Go to the URL under the current Page: Thanks to Ervin Gayle's Blog
Change the "DOCLIB" to "LIST" and click enter
Now your Page looks like this
Make the necessary changes for the anonymous users. And you are done !
Now your anonymous users can access the form and send it by e-mail
