Switch Views when InfoPath Form is Opened

I designed a form for a client that had several different views, and I needed a way to display a specific view when the form was opened. This was easy, but took me a bit to figure out.

  1. Go to Tools > Form Options.
  2. Click the Open and Save option.
  3. Click the Rules button, and add rules and actions to switch views.

With this method, I was able to set a field on form submittal to indicate which view was last active. When the submitted form was re-opened, I was able to use a conditional rule to switch to that last active view.
