  1. Enable dynamic URLs in Rich text/labels

    Currently only hard-coded URLs can be added to rich text/labels or controls in Nintex Online. It would be great if Nintex can enable insertion of dynamic URLs

  2. fn-GetQueryString in Nintex Forms

    Add the fn-GetQueryString() function to Nintex Forms for O365 so a query string parameter can be used on form load. This would replicate functionality found in Nintex Forms on Prem.

    We are currently working on our new Responsive designer which includes a new rules and logic engine. This includes the ability to get a querystring parameter value from the browser window.

    I will update this feature when we release our new Responsive designer.

  3. Managed Metata support in Repeating Sections

    Repeating sections must support Managed Metadata control

  6. Improve support for dateTime columns/controls and conversion/extraction/comparison with date and time columns/controls.

    1. Please can comparison operators between dateTime controls and list fields be made to work as expected?

    2. Please can conversions between dateTime and date and time fields be supported without string manipulation?

    Date manipulation functions such as convertToDateTime(date,time), convertToDateTime(date), extractDate(datetTime) and extractTime(dateTime) could achieve this.

  7. Incorrect help info for single line textbox control...

    Thee is an error in the online help info regarding the expression that can be control whether a field's appearance is enabled or not. The help text states that the expression must resolve to a Yes/No value at runtime. This is NOT true. The expression must resolve to True or False. A simple expression of IsNewMode works as is.

  9. dynamic redirect URL

    I think it would be really helpful to be able to set a dynamic redirect url based on a view or some other property in the form. Basically I would like to be able to set the new redirect URL through JS because I might not always want it to go to the same location. If you could make the redirect URL available to be set using code in the classic forms or add in variables, that would be awesome.

    Use Case….
    In SharePoint, if a user sorts or filters a list and clicks on a list item. Does something…

    Thanks for your suggestion Ben. This is in the backlog to be built in our new Responsive Forms designer.

    This will be implemented through the new rules engine, allowing you to dynamically change the submit button redirect address based on conditions in your rules.

    I will update this feature when we begin development.

  10. Allow for conditional formatting in responsive form.

    Font colours should be changeable if conditions are met.

    Thanks for your suggestion Angela. This is something I would like to implement with Universal Forms – i certainly see the value.

    It may not make it into the first release of Universal Forms for Office 365, but its definitely something I would like to see in the product.

    Cheers,
    Euan

  12. Ability to define height for a multi line of text field control

    I'd like the ability to define the height of a multi line of text control to be added.

    Currently there are scroll bars quite quickly. Couldn't a functionality added similar to changing the width?

  14. Allow local choice control to contain values with commas

    Where a choice control is not bound to a list column (and there are good reasons for that situation so it is not a solution here) the values for that choice control are specified in the control settings as a comma separated list. It appears there is no way to include a comma in a valid value by escaping the character. If there is, please advise, otherwise, please include!

  15. Increase Responsive Form Canvas above 900x700

    Reason is when working with repeating tables, we need the ability to add more than 4 "column" to the repeating section, currently 4 single line of text is max, and this is a bit to few?

  17. Add functionality to lookup lists on different sites

    The O365 version of the Lookup runtime function does not allow you to lookup lists on different sites. This is very restrictive

    We are nearing completion of the List Lookup control for our new Responsive designer. This new control includes a few new features including the ability to query across site collections.

    I will update this feature when we release the new Responsive designer.

  19. Add support for Business Connectivity Services (BCS) External Data column on Nintex Form

    Nintex Forms does not currently support a major type of data field - the Business Connectivity Services (BCS) External Data column. This allows users to lookup data in external databases from the form using the built-in SharePoint BCS interface.

    This is a critical component for many business processes that need to tie to customers, products, suppliers, etc that are all maintained in external systems.

    Thanks for your suggestion. As we are building our new Responsive Forms designer, we are looking at how we connect to other systems either through web services or external data column.

    I will update this feature when we I have more information to share.

  20. Support adding attachment control into a repeating section

    We have a requirement to be able to add an attachment control into the repeating section.

    This allows the user to add an attachment provide other metadata in that row.

    We will update this ticket when we release the new Responsive designer.
