Remarks

The action element is an optional element of the allowedActions element.

Each action enabled for the form must have a corresponding action element in the allowedActions section of the form definition file (.xsf).

Note   If this element or attribute is in the form definition file (.xsf), InfoPath Forms Services will prevent the form template from being deployed to the server as a browser-compatible form.
