Infopath does not allow one to design a form and distribute it without buying an Infopath license for all users. This makes the application less useful for small organizations. Why not choose a path similar to Adobe Acrobat which allows a licensed user to create documents and distribute them to others without a license? This would essentially mean providing Infopath Filler for free.

Microsoft Product Support
We have a significant issue where we are NOT able to re-publish INFOPATH form updates and Changes to our existing systems due to the large numbers of items being managed. There is no option suggested from Microsoft Support within SharePoint online, or work around to temporarily get around the 5000 item limit to re-publish the form. I would have suggested to save the list as a template and re-start (newyear) as the best option at least.
In the new user interface there is NO options to get to the InfoPath form from a list, other than “Return to Classic SharePoint”
As the Main Tenant Admin representing a large client there is NO Notification from Microsoft of impending updates that may impact our site owners. Example MS Update for New Page changed from WiKi page to Site Page without options to reset, notification, or work around impacting 60+ site owners for this tenant.
This summarizes our concerns to trust Microsoft being a tenant of their Online Office 365 solution, if they have shown that they are not sensitive to our needs, or communicative with updates and changes?
Today, I addressed 3-4 different concerns, each was answered by no solution or work-around other than to provide customer feedback for MS Office 365?
