  1. Add the possibility to change Alert messages on Responsive Forms

    When filling forms, add the possibility to change the alert message on the field you are filling.
    One example is, when filling a People Field that doesn't accept multiple values, if you try to set two or more values the following message is displayed:

    " You are only allowed to enter one item".

    This message is not user friendly, and it is only in English.
    Customizing those message would be a really nice feature.

    • Add Single Line of Text to List Lookup Functionality

      Here's the scenario:

      List Lookup: Project.

      Now, based on that project, I want to set fields to display: Project Manager; Location; Budget.

      And, more importantly, I need this to work on Nintex Mobile, and offline.

      Right now, I address this by using a concatenated string of all data that my List Lookup connects to, and then I RegEx out each piece.

      It works, but, it's stupid, and also it looks gross. In my list dropdown I see things like "Project: 123456; Manager: Rhia; Budget: $5,000; Location: Vancouver;" -- not a good UX.

      I know I can populate a dropdown with…

          • Print to PDF: Introduce page margin settings

            As we struggle with the same issue as described in community thread https://community.nintex.com/thread/13293-set-margin-for-print-to-pdf I would like to suggest the introduction of page margin setting capability for the print to pdf-section of the form setting page.

            • Change decimal number format on forms especially on iOS

              On iOS we've picked up that when filling out a form on Nintex mobile with a number or currency field, the control forces you to use points instead of commas as a decimal separator. This is quite a big limitation as it affects the form filling experience on iOS devices. What ends up happening is that the commas are not taking as decimal points but rather as thousand separators, would like to see a way to override/specify which character should be treated as a decimal separator per device (iOS and Android)

              • Convert Responsive Form to Classic Form

                I understand why converting classic into responsive is not at all feasible, however, I'd think that the opposite would be possible!

                When working for clients, we will often try - whenever possible - to use Responsive. Usually with the beginnings of requirements, Responsive is feasible.

                And then it hits ... "Can we ((do this thing that needs javascript))"? Can we ((do this thing that needs css))?" and we have to go and delete the entire form and recreate it in Classic.

                Until responsive can do all the same things classic can, we definitely need a convert tool for it.

                Thanks!

                • Flexi-Tasks should have Action IDs

                  If you are using parallel activities, there is currently no way for you to end a parallel activity if it is no longer required if you are using Flexi-tasks. The functionality works with an approval task (though Continue throws an error), but lacks this for a Flexi-Task because there is no where to store an Action ID. Even if it had a single option to "Continue" it would be extremely helpful with complex workflows.

                  • Show % of form completed for user

                    When filling out long forms with numerous input fields, it would be good to show the user the progress that they made ; like a Progress bar that shows how much % of the form has been filled in and how much is left.

                    • Signature controls to render to an image

                      Currently to add a signature in the desktop version of Nintex Forms and to display the signature in a desktop form that was created from Nintex Mobile it is necessary to use javascript. It would be of great assistance to have a control (for both classic and responsive forms) where the signature can be drawn and it will get saved as an image - thus alleviating the need for js.

                        • 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!

                          • Improvement for Web Request Control & SQL Request Control

                            Been working with both of these controls a lot lately and thought that I might post ideas for improvement I think these controls needs:

                            1. Ability to append data to text fields, currently if the form have 10 fields that collects data from external Webservice or SQL, we will need to implement 10 Controls in the form, which don't make form user friendly at all, and don't forget the massive loading time.

                            2. Ability to use validation based on {self}, currently we had to name every control and create a rule for each control, instead of creating one and append…

                                  • Nintex "Site" Level Forms

                                    I suggested this to Euan several months ago. Currently there are forms associated with a list and workflow. It would be extremely valuable to have a form that is associated with a site (kind of like a SP site page) that has access to all lists and libraries in a site. That way an entire solution could be built out using only Nintex Forms. Also posted this as an idea for O365 Forms.

                                    • Print to PDF enlarge Multi Line Textbox

                                      Enlarge Multi Line Textboxes dynamically instead of displaying a scroll bar on the right hand side.

                                      • Responsive Forms - Enable borders for View Forms

                                        Currently field items are displayed without borders and most of the formatting in view fields. These cause some values that are not filled to look very out of place and orphaned.

                                        My suggestion is to allow the borders to display on View form but perhaps just fade the fields and remove any X to remove names from lists.
