Force InfoPath to open in browserview

A normal link to an InfoPath template could be

  • /FormServerTemplates/template.xsn

But in order to get pageviews in InfoPath to work in IE11, you have to add the domain in Compatibility View Settings, thus breaking the function of starting a new form in the browser, based on your template.

The normal fix is to add ?clientinstalled=false after the link. That will not work. You have to supply the FormsServer address and another flag called “DefaultItemOpen”

The link to opening InfoPath in browser view in any browser (Including IE11) is:

  •  /_layouts/FormServer.aspx?XsnLocation=/FormServerTemplates/template.xsn%3F&clientinstalled=false&DefaultItemOpen=1
