  2. Hey Tamara!
    Great, fun presentation at SharePoint Saturday on MetaData. I stopped by after to ask how your views were displaying multi-select fields when our views, converted from WSS will not.

    Would you please ask your collegues if they have had a challenge with views converted from WSS into 2013 erroring out when the view contains multi-select fields? How do they recommend working around this?

    Hello Tamara,

    Is it possible to change content types on an InfoPath form like you can with a normal SharePoint edit form? I have not been able to find any information pertaining to that on any of my searches. I had to go to the InfoPath form because I am using the cascading dropdowns to narrow my selection choices based on an earlier selection.

    Any help would be great.



    • Hi Wade,

      First, let me ask why you need to change content types on your InfoPath Form? Would different views within the same form address your needs?

      Looking forward to your reply.

    Hello Tamara,

    I was unfamiliar with InfoPath and was actually able to complete my project using views.

    Thank you,
