We are using InfoPath with SharePoint and have mapped some form fields to metadata fields. We have offices around the globe. When people from different offices make small changes on an InfoPath form, the dates get clobbered. It appears
that the date is translated based on the user's time zone when the form is open for reading, but the raw [now translated] date gets written back to SharePoint even when they do not touch the date. Needless to say, after a number of people from different
offices touch a form the dates end up with very unpredictable values.
Is it possible to use InfoPath with SharePoint in a global setting? We have really racked our brains trying to build work arounds to this bug. I have seen other posts that suggest we create a site for each time zone. While this might solve
the time zone translation issues, it totally disrupts the collaborative process.
Any ideas are greatly appreciated.
