We have 100s of Infopath 2003 forms published on our Sharepoint site (MOSS 2007). These forms are updated constantly. The problem we have is that anytime we change the form's design (ex. change wording on the form), the user will get the
"Form Template Conflict" message when they click on the form. This is very confusing to them, and although we've asked them to click on "Replace form", they still get confused.
This message is very confusing to anyone, not just a user. We would like to suppress this message so that every single time we update a form, they don't have to see this. I'm not sure why it even saves a copy locally on their machines, anyway. The
fact is that in 100% of all cases, they will need to replace the form on their computer. Renaming the forms every time we edit them is not an option - there are too many and links would all be broken.
Can anyone tell us how to "hide" or "suppress" this error for our users? Or design a form on the back-end that won't show this? Could possibly changing security settings prevent this? Any suggestions would be appreciated on how to prevent
this message from popping every time we update a form.
