Combine a people picker with an email submit connection to send email in SharePoint

This solution is a sample usage of the technique explained in recipe 74 of InfoPath 2013 Cookbook 2 that retrieves email addresses based on users that are selected in a people picker control on an InfoPath form, and then uses those email addresses in an email submit connection to send a simple email message through an InfoPath browser form in SharePoint 2013.

Send a link to a submitted InfoPath form in an email via SharePoint

This solution extends recipe 60 of InfoPath 2013 Cookbook 2 that detects whether a form is new or not, and if it is new, a number is generated for the form and added to the new name of the form when the form is submitted to the SharePoint form library; otherwise, the existing form name is used to submit the InfoPath form back to the form library. The addition to the functionality discussed in the recipe deals with sending an email message to one or more users selected from a people picker control on the InfoPath form when the form is submitted for the first time. The email message contains a link to the newly submitted InfoPath form that can then be opened in the browser via SharePoint 2013. You can watch a video demonstration of the solution.
