Where to publish my custom form ?

I wish to have a folder based custom form that myself and 3 colleagues

can access in a shared mailbox. Each of us accesses the shared

mailbox as an "additional mailbox" to our personal one. But here is

my problem :

1) I cannot publish to a folder because I want instances of this

custom form to be stored in multiple folders.

2) Publishing to the "Personal Forms Library" does not work as it does

not share with my colleagues, and additionally is not visible from the

shared mailbox

3) I cannot use "one off" forms as this results in duplication, but

also the security settings in Outlook do not allow the VBScript to

run.

4) I cannot publish to the "Organizational Forms Library" as my

company does not allow it.

Are there any other options ? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Have each user publish the form to their own Personal Forms library.

Depending on how you want users to be able to invoke it, you may also want

to publish it to the shared calendar. You'll need owner permission on the

folder to do that.

This means, of course, that when you update the form, it will need to be

republished in all these places. It is essential to maintain a good

versioning scheme on the (Properties) page of the form, so that you can know

which version is in use at any given moment.

Thanks Sue,

However, instances of this form need to be stored in folders in the

shared mailbox, not in user's personal mailbox. I have found that

even if published to the Personal forms library, as soon as an

instance of the form is copied to a folder in the shared library, it

becomes a one-off and the VBscript code won't run.

I suspect that if you look at the form's MessageClass and Size, you'll see

that it is not in fact a run-off. The lack of code execution is more likely

caused by a default setting on the user's machine; see

Fantastic, thanks Sue. You were absolutely right - enabling the

"script in shared folders" has allowed the script to run, so I will

now follow your suggestion about my colleagues all publishing to their

Personal Forms Library.

Steve
