Activate form templates

Note: Visit for the most up-to-date and comprehensive information.

Activating a form template to a site collection makes the form available to users within that site collection. To activate a form template within a site collection requires that you have feature activation permissions on that site collection. It is also possible for site collection administrators to activate form templates from the site collection administration page.

  1. On the top navigation bar, click Application Management.

  2. On the Application Management page, in the InfoPath Forms Services section, click Manage form templates.

  3. On the Manage Form Templates page, in the list of form templates, point to the form template that you want to activate, click the arrow that appears, and then click Activate to a Site Collection on the menu that appears.

  4. On the Activate Form Template page, if the site collection that you want to activate does not appear in the Site Collection list in the Activation Location section, click Change Site Collection on the Site Collection menu.

    1. In the Select Site Collection window, select the URL for the site collection. You can search for the URL by using the URL Search box, and you can change the Web application if needed by using the Web Application menu.

    2. Click OK.

  5. On the Activate Form Template page, click OK.
