Promoting InfoPath fields to document library

When using InfoPath form as document template in a document library we can specify all or some of the form’s fields to be propagated as columns in the document library. This way when a form is submitted new InfoPath form is uploaded but also the specified columns are propagated as columns in the document library.
This is practical when there area lot of fields in the InfoPath form and some of the fields should be propagated as columns and the rest will be retained inside the form.

To promote the fields follow the steps listed below when designing the form:

  1. Go to Form Options -> Property Promotion
    Form Options -> Property Promotion
  2. Add the fields which you want to be promoted to the document library as columns by clicking Add button and choosing from the list of fields available in the form.
  3. Publish the form to the document library
