Redirect URL on submission errors if spaces are already encoded


Posted by kdjones74 - Nov 18 ’16 at 08:22

In SharePoint Online, I created a form a few months ago and configured the URL redirect on submission to go to a page in SharePoint that had spaces in the file name.  When I entered the URL in Forms Designer, I had just copied the URL from the browser window, so the spaces were already encoded as %20.


Last Friday (11/11/2016), my users started reporting errors when they submitted my form.  I opened a ticket with Microsoft and it turns out that the URL was being double encoded, which was generating an error with a correlation ID.  Replacing those %20 with spaces in the URL within Forms Designer fixed it.


The SharePoint Online product group is telling the Microsoft Support Engineer that nothing changed in the code that handles that in SharePoint and are pointing at Forms Designer.  Is this a bug in Forms Designer?

    As I can see nothing has changed in this part of the logic. But I agree with you that it can be considered as a bug of the software. We will check if the URL is already encoded and pass through the encoding step. The fix will come soon.
