Hey cvonbargen,


I think you may have success with the "Close the browser window" action rule. I have not had a chance to test if this rule only works for forms opened in the browser and not through SharePoint. 


Also, I believe that any rules that are still running when we "Close the browser window" will continue to run on the backend. This could be helpful or cause problems depending on your design.


Seen screenshot for rule. 

All 3 options aren't working.
