  1. Restrict time control

    It would be great if we could restrict the window of time a user could select on a datetime control. For example, if I want users to only be able to select times between 8AM and 5PM, it would be nice to configure that in the control itself instead of creating a bunch of rules to ensure only a certain time frame is available each day.

  2. No limit on "or" or "and" conditions

    It would be great if there was no limit to the number of "or" conditions and the number of "and" conditions one could use in a rule on a form!

  3. Training Ownership - Make it Easily Transferrable

    Please make it possible to transfer Training Ownership like you can with Risks, Roles and Incidents. Would also be a good idea to make the Training Ownership linked to a role, rather than a specific person's name. I currently have 300+ training units and I have to manually open each one up and type in the new Training Owner's name if I want to swap the Training Owner - v. time consuming!

  4. Allow People Picker be used in a validation rules - New Responsive designer - Nintex Forms O365

    It would help a lot to have the ability to use people picker value inside validation rules in the new responsive designer. At least the value of the people picker field stored in a text variable should be allowed. We use a lot of rules based on people picker values.
    It is also confusing that in fact in the new responsive designer you can select the people picker value inside the rule without any issue but the rule will simple not work which make it confusing.

  5. Page Break Functionality in New Responsive Design - Nintex Forms O365

    It would be really useful if we would have page break functionality in the Nintex Forms O365, New Responsive design, like we have in the old responsive. Print functionality in the new responsive is a lot nicer and it would be perfect to have the ability to put a break on the pages we can configure. The printed document would be a lot better organised and easy to read. This is also an important requirement for a process we have in our company.

  6. Create option for Contractors to only see My Training, nothing else

    We are using the new Training module, which is great except we want to create onboarding plans for contractors - but don't want them to be able to see everything else on our Promapp (processes, documents, risk register, improvements module, etc.), as this information is often of a confidential nature. Currently they will be able to see all our documentation etc. when they log in to do their training. Please amend this so that we can set viewing permissions to allow the role of "Contractor" to only see My Training.

  7. Sign-in for multiple users who will have no editing rights other than viewing the SOPs

    For multiple users who will have no editing rights other than viewing the SOPs, there is currently no option to set up that the users won't need to enter a password. To sign in those users always need to type their password and usernames.
    I would like to have the option (from a central screen) that the users can "click a button" and it takes them to their SOPs.

  9. Ability to add new tag family

    Hi,

    now we have 3 tags family; document, lean, and timeframe. My idea is to allow the Promaster to add a new tag family based on business needs like, business requirements, auditing tags, etc.

  10. Provide a Bold/Color Identifier for the owner of an Activity on the Map

    Highlight/Color/Bold the 'Owner' of an Activity on the Map.

    Many times, various departments are involved in an activity, which needs to be shown on the Map, but an easier way to identify the "Owner" would be to have the ability to highlight/color/bold it separately from the others. Please see attached example.

  14. Forms Designer in Workflow Task Form is missing the List Attachments Form Control

    While designing a Task Form in Workflow Action, like Assign Flex Task, the Attachments list column Form Control is not available. A user responding to a task request is unable to view any attachments in the list. Although you could check the checkbox of "Include list item attachments" in the Configure Action of Assign Flex Task, having the list Attachments form control right on the workflow task form will be much convenient.

  15. Show Code

    Nintex is a great tool for non developer to get idea of what goes into development to help understand the logic and get into development.
    It would be great to see the behind the scenes code for the whole workflow. And you should be able to select languages from drop down.

  16. Improve the RTE

    It is difficult to maintain a formulae in the RTE, particularly if it needs to be updated.
    Instead the cursor jumps to the front of the text, or a large portion of the formulae gets deleted when trying to delete a reference.

  17. state machine/action set lane background colors

    General idea: Allow for background colors to be applied within state machine branches and action sets.

    Problem 1: Working with large state machines that have many branches it can be easy to lose track of which branch you're looking at. Especially when one branch can span your screen width-wise.

    Problem 2: Working inside nested action sets can leave you confused as to which action set you're modifying actions in.

    Solution: Allow the ability to apply background colors(and patterns such as vertical striped, horizontal striped, diagonal striped, etc.) to action sets and branches of state machines. Other areas may benefit from…

  18. Overwriting an existing UDA in designer and Manage User Defined Actions section

    Since we can overwrite an existing workflow by importing and then saving over an existing workflow, I propose the same functionality can be applied to designing a UDA.

    For UDAs that cannot be promoted to farm level for whatever reason, a UDA would need to be imported into whatever sites are going to be using it. In my situation, we develop a UDA in a site designed for testing, and when our changes are ready to be deployed we'd then have to replicate those changes into the UDAs being deployed in production.

    From my understanding, if we were even going…

    1) SP2016 - Firefox 66.0.3 (64-bit) - Set variable action, equals Value: add a Item Property of type Single line of text and attempt to type after it. This occurs in multiple actions.
    2) SPOnline - Firefox 66.0.3 (64-bit) - Set variable action, add item property. Unable to delete item property. Same occurs in the Body of a Send an Email action.
    3) SPOnline - Chrome 74.0.3729.108 (64-bit) - Recurring issue where dropdown selections are blank because the selections are displayed to the left of the viewable dropdown window. This happens in various…

  20. :focus and :hover states on responsive forms

    I noticed that when tabbing through a form with a keyboard or using assistive technologies on the SharePoint Online Responsive forms, there is a lack of focus  and hover states in the CSS on most of the form fields.

    Per WCAG 2.0 AA 2.4.7 - Any keyboard operable user interface has a mode of operation where the keyboard focus indicator is visible.

    A keyboard user tabbing through one of the forms has no clue what form field their on.

    I can make the changes via CSS offline but there's no where to make these changes on the form itself.

    How/when can…
