This feature requires SharePoint 2010 or greater with InfoPath Forms Services enabled

This InfoPath tutorial explains how to resolve the issue This feature requires SharePoint 2010 or greater with InfoPath Forms Services enabled.

Recently I had a signup for an Office 365 enterprise E3 trial and then I created a SharePoint site collection from SharePoint Online admin center. Then I wanted to create a new InfoPath 2013 form in the same site collection.

I opened InfoPath designer 2013 and then choose SharePoint List Form templated in InfoPath and then click on the Design Form button. Then I gave the SharePoint Online site URL in the Data connection wizard dialog box and click on Next.

But it through an error which says:  This feature requires SharePoint 2010 or greater with InfoPath Forms Services enabled. The error looks like below:

this feature requires sharepoint 2010 or greater with infopath forms services enabled
this feature requires sharepoint 2010 or greater with infopath forms services enabled

Follow these steps:

Open SharePoint Admin center. For this login to Admin.Microsoft.com and then from the home page click on the Admin icon which will open the Office 365 Admin center.
