Best way to publish a qrules web enable form on O365 SharePoint 2013
Hello I was hopping someone could point me in the correct direction to publish a Qrules web enable InfoPath 2013 form to my Office 365 tenant service. I am able to get it to publish but the commands do not work. I reviewed the user manual but I must be missing something. I am a global admin and I am using Qrules 6.1. Thanks
Infopath 2013 - auto-numbers
Hello, I am brand new to InfoPath. I was trying to follow some videos and tutorials I found on auto-numbering a field in a form.

For instance when assigning a value to a field like max(@ID) + 1, whenever...
Re: Synchronizing SharePoint Task List status with Infopath
So I modifed my form to use the SharePoint ID. RefreshSharePointListItems works great except in situations where the task is deleted from SharePoint. In that case, the item is removed from InfoPath as well. I can't have this happen. I'd prefer to have the InfoPath item have it's status changed to "[Associated Task Deleted]". Suggestions...
Update record in another Sharepoint List
Let me try to describe my scenario the best I can .
I have a holiday request form that send information to a SharePoint list called Holiday request.
When a user open the form, it gets some data from another SharePoint list with the employee information like, name and the amount of days that the employee still have in holidays.
Looking in the qrules Command doc, I see the SubmitAsUser command when submitting to a SP form library. I need this functionality but with the SubmitToSharePointList command. In the parameter list for this, I don't see any that will submit to the list as a user. Can this be done with qRules (or any other way)? I have qRules 6.1, InfoPath 2010 and...
