  1. 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 continuing to work on the new Responsive Forms designer and aiming for the release next year. This will include the querystring function.

      When we are getting closer to release, I will update this feature.

    • Convert designer experiences from Classic to Responsive

      I have forms i am working on in the classic designer. I would like to start working on them in the responsive designer. Also, any changes that need to be made to old forms, it would be nice to use the new responsive designer.

        We have discussed the idea of converting from Classic to Responsive but due to the big change in structure, we are not sure it would give a great experience.

        As an example, a form of 1000px in a 10×10 grid would be a 100 column grid. Converting this from Classic to a Responsive 4 column grid would not look great. The best we could do is just list every control stacked under each other. If you think this would still be useful, please leave a comment below.

      • Add new Hide Control option (visibility:hidden) to Responsive Forms

        Currently when you hide fields, they are not useable by calculated fields, and I believe some rules/validations. I believe this stems from using a display:none tag as opposed to a visibility:hidden CSS tag. Then whatever Nintex is using to process things, can't always find the hidden elements.

        It would be good to add in an option to hide controls without impacting the ability to use them again in other calculated fields.

        I've used this in classic forms for a while, where I created a custom CSS class .hideFromForm{visibility:hidden;}, but we can no longer do this on the new Responsive forms.

        • Improve form load speed in O365

          The form load speed in O365 is not fast enough, I'm not talking about complex forms, just simple form no javascript, no lookup, 10 field.

            Thanks for your suggestion.

            We are currently working on our new version of Responsive Forms for Office 365 which is very much focused on performance and load times. When we are getting closer to launch, I will update this idea.

          • Web Request Control

            Hi,

            I think it would be great to bring these two controls to Forms on O365 as soon as possible.

            https://community.nintex.com/community/tech-blog/blog/2015/08/07/nintex-forms-enterprise-web-request-control

            Thanks.

                This is still in the backlog for development. Our plan is to include this functionality with the new Responsive Forms designer in the future. I do not have a position on whether we will bring this back to Classic yet as we have no begun the work.

                When we begin development on this feature, I will update this idea.

              • The ability to publish Anonymous forms to the Internet (using Nintex Live)

                The ability to publish Anonymous forms to the Internet (using Nintex Live) so forms can be filled by (potential) customers from a website.

                  This feature is still in the backlog. We are focused on Universal Forms for Office 365 at the moment.

                  Once we ship Universal Forms for Office 365 and SharePoint, we will review our offering of Live Forms.

                  I will update this feature once we ship Universal Forms.

                • Hide delete button on Responsive forms

                  CSS can be used to hide ribbon controls on Classic 365 Forms but not Responsive 365 Forms.
                  Expansion of current CSS form options to check boxes hiding/showing ribbon buttons (on Edit screens).

                    Thanks for your suggestion. Since CSS is not available in Responsive Forms, we will certainly consider what configuration options would be available in relation to the buttons.

                    The new Responsive Forms designer does not have a SharePoint ribbon but rather a new minimal ribbon which gives us a lot of flexibility.

                  • 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.

                    • Duplicate form format, for task forms.

                      All the user to duplicate New, Edit or View forms, formats into a task form. Saving developer time, at this point the fields are carried over without the customized formats that have been added to the original form.

                        Thanks for your suggestion Dottie.

                        As we are currently building Universal Forms which will include a new Responsive Task Form, we will be revisiting how Task Forms are created.

                        When we begin development of the new Task Forms, I will update this idea.

                        • Remove ribbon from form

                          good to have the option to remove the ribbon once the form is published. The end user may click the 'save' option and save it locally or name it.

                          End users should not be able to use the ribbon to save & name forms, A dedicated save&submit button in the form not the ribbon should be used for saving.

                            Thanks for your suggestion Steve. This is now in the backlog for development in Universal Forms for Office 365.

                            Would you want to hide the bar completely? Or would you expect some flexibility regarding which buttons are shown? Let me know your thoughts in the comments section below.

                          • Make it more user friendly, especially rules and formulas.

                            Please make the option to use rules as a second choice. Nintex should create more useful functions on the side panel to create forms such as "branching" or "hiding." Rules are not very user friendly and the Nintex guides are not helpful.

                              Nintex Forms for Nintex Workflow Cloud includes a new rules engine with a more intuitive user experience. We are looking into how we can bring a similar experience to Nintex Forms for Office 365.

                            • calculated columns

                              It would be great to be able to display calculated SharePoint columns in Nintex forms. It seems they are filtered out. Sometimes it is not possible to complete the same functionality in the calculated value control.
