InfoPath rules are used to create the logic for all of the controls on the form. Rules are created for conditionally formatting data, validating data in controls and also to execute form logic based on form actions.||19:20|
|Use cascading drop-downs in InfoPath to display parent-child information||Showing parent-child information in an InfoPath form is very beneficial to a variety of scenarios. This video shows how you can setup the form to fetch data from database tables related to product information (Category, Subcategory, Product). Drop-down lists are used to show this related information such that when a category is selected, the related subcategories appear in the next drop-down. Subsequently, when a subcategory is selected, the related product information is populated in the next drop-down.||9:54|

|Publish InfoPath form through a site Content Type||InfoPath form templates can be encompassed within a content type. The benefit of doing this is so you can reuse this content type within multiple libraries. If you later need to update the form template, you can update it in InfoPath and republish it to the content type and all libraries that are using this content type will get updated.||6:32|
|Working with Administrator approved InfoPath form templates||One of the options of InfoPath form template deployment, in SharePoint Server Enterprise, is by making it an Administrator approved form template.

Deploying a form template in this way will make it available as a site collection feature throughout the SharePoint farm.||9:31|
|Working with External Data in InfoPath Forms|
|Fetch data from Databases and SharePoint Lists into InfoPath form||An InfoPath form template is capable of making connections to a variety of external data sources such as databases, SharePoint Lists and Libraries, XML files, and web services.

|Store database connections in an InfoPath form to a data connection library||This video starts out with an InfoPath form with cascading drop-downs already enabled showing information from database tables. The data connections are converted to UDCX connection files and stored in a data connection library within a SharePoint site. Then InfoPath forms services settings are adjusted to allow the use of these connections. Lastly, the form is published to a form library where it can be filled out by an end user.||8:37|
