I realize this is out of left field, but I'm wondering if anyone has any
ideas on how to save a file to the UserApp server's local file system.
This could be done during the forms part or in workflow activities. I
know I have options to make a SOAP service to do this sort of thing, but
I'm trying to accomplish this goal without any major new components.

Let me back up a little. What I'm actually trying to do is save a copy
of the form any user submits for a specific workflow. I've got my
workflow setup to get the contents of the <form> tag (using jQuery) and
then remove the <img> and <script> tags and add in some <style> tags to
make it pretty again (since it will be viewed without the theme.css
resource). Next I base64 encode the HTML it and store it in a hidden
TextArea field (had to encode it or UA complained about the contents of
the textarea) right after the user clicks submit. Then from a workflow
mapping activity, I am decoding it back to HTML and passing it into an
email template with the <use-html> tags around it.

This arrives in the Security team's mailbox and provides them with a
nice copy of the form as it was submitted (just for historical
reference... not audit). Anyway, the problem is that Outlook (sorry
Groupwise) won't display the form and it makes you click to view it
within your browser. It also doesn't seem to index the contents of the
HTML so you can't use the search feature to find a particular request

So....anyway, I've got a string containing a perfect little blob of
HTML/CSS and I would LOVE to find a way to save it to the UserApp server
and then from there I could ship it off to place where the Security team
can browse through them all. Heck, if I could even attach it to an
email (instead of making it the contents) that would be great.

Not a big deal if I can't do this as it's not a project requirement,
but it would be an awesome bonus since the system that this workflow is
replacing (Lotus Notes) has a built-in mechanism for storing each form.
This is my last project on the IDM/UserApp team so I'd love to hit a
home run before I leave. I appreciate any thoughts.
