      • nintex mobile refresh

        Having the ability to refresh the Nintex Mobile Forms list on the iPhone app similar to the Android app would be fantastic. The Android app has a button to refresh in the top right corner, and on iPhone/iPad you have to scroll all the way to the top of the forms list to pull down on the screen to force it to refresh.

        A single button click would be much quicker than having to scroll all the way to the top of the forms list to be able to pull down on the screen.

        Having the ability to do both…

        • Multilingual Mobile Form - requires duplicate fields

          We are creating mobile multilingual forms. From what I can see, I have to create duplicate fields for each language. This doubles ... the amount of columns required in the sharepoint list. And will be compounded when I have to create a form with three or four languages.

          I don't have the same problem with the purely desktop forms. So I'm not sure what's going on here.

          • Multiple lines of text should be compatible with Kwizcom Clipboard Manager

            It would be really really great if Nintex Forms multiple lines of text controls (in rich text mode) were compatible with Kwizcom Clipboard Manager (http://www.kwizcom.com/sharepoint-add-ons/SharePoint-clipboard-manager/overview/). This small add-on let the user copy and pasting an image by clicking on a button instead of creating an image file, uploading it in a document Library and then creating a link on the multiple line of text field to the uploaded image. This saves a lot of time!

            • Upload image directly to library from Image Control

              When using images in the forms design, having the ability to upload the image within the design experience rather than having to upload the images into a library prior .. And being able to browse for existing images would make designing much easier.

              • Cascading Dropdown - Set Default Value if only one option available

                When you use the technique for cascading drop down controls if the second control only has 1 value available set this as the default display value within the control.

                Users shouldn't have to open up the second control to select the value.

                • Repeating section default xml text

                  It would be great if it would be possible to enter a default XML text so that all the new forms would use this text.

                  For example som repeating data sets.
                  It is neither possible to enter a default text in the multiple lines data type nor to define a default set in the repeating section control. Therefore, there is no proccuption of repeating sections possible.

                    • Use a calculated default value in a single line text box

                      In order to get the current user name I can use a calculated value field [userProfileLookup(Current User, "PreferredName")] )or the people picker [current user])

                      I would like to have the same functionality as within the calculated value field within a single line of text as this would be editable for the user.

                        You will be able to achieve this functionality using the ‘Set field value’ rule in responsive forms which will be available in our next major release.

                      • Copy/Paste Rules with Controls

                        When copying/pasting controls within a form, the designer does not copy the rules associated with that control. They are very easy to apply if you have a few but if you have a bunch of them, this can get time consuming. I'd suggest the default behaviour when copying a control is to copy all properties including rules.

                        • By default Multi Language support

                          Currently, if you want to build a multi language form, you must replace labels by "Calculate fields", then use a lookup function to get the correct value into a SharePoint Translation List.

                          This method is only acceptable if you have a small quantity of field on your form, due each calculate field means a request to the list, so 200 labels means 200 request to the list --> PERFORMANCE HUGE ISSUE.

                          The other way is building some JavaScript, but it means to add a lot of code lines in our forms (minimum one line par language-label).

                          It would be great…

                            • "Show on Ribbon" based on Named Control

                              There is an option to conditionally show a button in the ribbon based on an Expression, but there is not the option to build that expression based on a Named Control. This would provide the option to conditionally show or hide a button in the ribbon based on what the user is filling out at runtime, to match the conditional button appearance on the form via Rules.

                                  In STATE dropdown i have 4 values "TX,NY,CA,MI"
                                  if a user seleccts "MI" i want to make web request control mandatory.
                                  How can i do that ?

                                  Please help me on this request.

                                  Thanks,
                                  UDAY

                                  • Allow fill-in choices for Managed Metadata fields

                                    Right now, Nintex forms do not provide fill-in choices as seen here: http://help.nintex.com/en-US/o365/o365/O365Forms/FormControls/ManagedMetadata.htm

                                    I would like Nintex to support fill-in submissions to MM fields.

                                    • More shown items in (multi-select) list Form control

                                      Currently the (multi-select) list control (Nintex Forms 2013) shows only 4 items and a vertical scrollbar for 4+ items, despite the height of the control itself on the form. It would be nice if the height of window showing the available items would grow with the control with a minimum of 4 items and a maximum of e.g. 10 items.

                                      • Official document on custom JavaScripting in Nintex Forms

                                        Sometimes it is quite cumbersome to find JavaScript related information on how to handle controls. Topics I would like to be covered include which control events can we use, how to set/get control value(s), where to put custom JavaScript (document.ready, FormFiller events etc).
