  1. Responsive forms rule to populate people control

    Rules currently allow you to set field value of textbox controls. We would like to use a rule to populate a people control (i,e, set manager field people control based on another people control using user profile lookup).

    • print to pdf action as independent button

      Currently "print to pdf" button is only in Ribbon.
      A lot of times users asked to hide Ribbon, but have a button "print to pdf" in any other side of the form.
      It should be great to be able to have the same functionality in a regular button, like, save, save and submit, cancel... selecting it on "button type property" (please, have a look to the attached file).

      • Offline form builder

        It would be fantastic to have a dedicated app to build Nintex forms in rather than being forced to do it via the browser.

        I understand that a lot of the functionality requires online access (lookups and columns etc), but the ability to build in a dedicated app and then publishing that to SharePoint would be a great addition.

        • Rules to set a field value in Classic designer

          I love the addition of the responsive designer. It would be extremely helpful if the classic designer also had the ability to create rules to set a feilds value.

          • Online payments on Nintex form

            We need an integration point on the forms to be able to accept online payments, paypal, CC...etc.
            It has been requested by multiple organizations to process payments through a secure gateway within the Nintex form for External and internal users. It would be to have this available on internal and external facing (LIVE) forms as well. It was mainly requested for Nintex on-prem 2016. But it would be great to have it also available on other versions, 2010, 2013 and office 365.

            • "in-the-box" solution for signatures on responsive forms?

              Any way of implementing this in the responsive form (the code by Wisam Fawzi or equivalent) as a "in-the-box" solution for signatures on responsive forms?

              ie.https://community.nintex.com/community/tech-blog/blog/2016/02/26/extending-nintex-mobile-signature-control-to-desktopbrowser

              We need an in-house solution for putting signatures on forms without resorting to Adobe Sign. We also wish to put Javascript in responsive forms (for things like signatures and embedding pictures in mobile forms). Have looked through forums and found various posts regarding the issue and do not wish to go back to back to the classic design.

              • Update the Classic Designer Controls to look the same as the Responsive controls

                For a consistent look and feel to forms designed in either of the designer choices (responsive of classic) it would be good to update the designer controls to more closely reflect the look and feel of the new responsive controls which have a modern, clean and fresh look to them.

                • Classic Forms converted into Responsive Design Forms

                  It would be great if there was a way to convert or import Classic Nintex Forms into the Responsive Design Form. Deleting your 'classic' form and re-creating it as a 'responsive design' form is a pain and it duplicates the time/energy put into the initial form builder. I can't justify the cost to have my team update our forms.

                  • In Responsive forms Manage metadata controls

                    MMD control name should appear in the formula or insert reference -> named controls list.

                    MMD controls must have basic validation like is required default values..

                      • Show only unique values with Lookups

                        If we could include the option to include only unique values when building a lookup control it'd be swell!

                        I.e. I have a list of Departments with their corresponding Group. Each Group has multiple Departments, so there are multiple lines of each Group in the list. I want to be able to show only the unique values for Group when I build a lookup!

                            It would be great to have some kind of tool that acts as "Rules Inspector" listing detailed info about:
                            - unused rules
                            - duplicated rules
                            - rules using deleted or non-existing controls
                            - rules per control
                            The output should be in a new browser tab & printable.

                                  Hi All,
                                  we have delivered users the capability to action tasks from within their email by clicking a button. This feature is currently available on O365 Mail and Outlook 2016 Version 17.10 (Build 8201.1000) or higher.

                                  We utilised Microsoft’s Actionable messages feature to deliver this capability, and they plan to rolled out this feature on Outlook mobile and Outlook for Mac early next year. Once they have delivered this feature we will also make this capability available on Outlook Mobile and Outlook for Mac.

                                • colored responsive controls

                                  With the September 2017 update, Nintex on-premises responsive forms are coming. After some hours testing it, I miss a lot of "old" features, like the possibility to join a CSS style to a control. With responsive forms, we completely lost the ability to change the color of a label text, or the background color in a panel.

                                  New controls are really cool, but it would be even better if we could personalize them a little bit more! If, for some reason, custom css styles are forbidden, there's a way to let user set up some basic parameters in each control…

                                  • Adding add new row and deletion of row from repeating section to tab index

                                    For creating ADA compliant forms the Add new row and the x in repeating sections needs to be added to the tab-index so end users with disabilities can easly add rows or delete rows.

                                      • Make where you write functions an actual code editor

                                        It is very frustrating writing anything other than a basic formula in Nintex forms for several reasons. The biggest frustration though is that there is no validation. Even Microsoft Excel gives you and indication that your formula is invalid. Also marking closing and opening brackets and parenthesis would be a huge help. It seems like it would be a simple task to implement this and a huge win for users.
