  1. People Picker validation on Form submission

    At present when a form is submitted the people picker control is validated on user login. Can this be changed so the control is validated using Email address instead of the login name.

  2. Clear non connected fields on a form

    Would like the ability to clear unconnected fields on a Nintex Form when the form loads. Some customers have the requirement not to preserve form data to a unbound field on the form.

  3. Nintex Mobile Radio buttons alternative request

    Hi,

    The biggest problem with radio buttons/choice controls on Nintex Mobile is that it defaults to the native behaviour of displaying all values in a list, such that selecting the control it "pushes" the list to a new window on the stack and the only screen you see IS the list. Users then select a value(s) and the user then "pops" the window off the stack returning the user to the page with the option choices value(s) shown.

    There is an alternative behaviour that can be implemented, and I have done this as an iOS developer, and the behaviour I…

  4. Nintex Mobile App Radio button are not supported

    Currently the Nintex Mobile App doesn't display the Radio buttons, instead it shows the options as a drop down list.

    We have built a QA process form which shows a poor design without Radio buttons.

    Please include the Radio buttons in the Nintex Mobile App.

    Thanks

  5. Ability to add task outcome in UPPERCASE via task process action

    Can we have the option to be able to add task outcomes either in UPPERCASE or LOWERCASE and not default to the first letter being in uppercase and the rest reverting to lowercase?

    Consider the below steps:

    1. Navigate to workflow designer

    2. Add a "Task Process" action to the canvas

    3. Double-click the Task Process action to configure it.

    4. You will notice that under the Task outcomes section, there are two outcomes: Approve and Reject.

    5. Rename the task outcome "Approve" to APPROVE.

    6. Click away from the text box and you will notice that it has changed…

  6. List Lookup control should support the Multiple lines of text sharepoint column type

    Because of how I designed 2 forms over 2/3 of a year ago, I need to spend extra time to perform a certain request for a client. I currently need to update 5 different choice controls with information that already exists in another list.

    What leads to the issue described in the topic is that in my research to move this information out of choice controls and into a list lookup required me to set the column types to single line of text. Now, the list lookup control does support this, however one of the columns allows multiple selections, and…

  7. Copying control from one form to another form

    This would be so useful and time-saver if we could copy control from one form to another form. Also, it should be possible that we could import a complete form let's say source form, into another form i.e. destination form while older controls in destination form are not lost. For this, user should be able to import a form in a panel sort of thing in another form.

  9. prevent users from deleting rows in repeating section

    Would like to have the ability to toggle if users can remove rows in a repeating section using a runtime function and a named control. Currently on both classic and responsive, nintex forms only lets you use an expression where you can use inline functions and item properties.

    What could also work is perhaps having the abillity to hide the "x" in the repeating section.

    Use case could be a process where users add comments or data to a form but should not delete other peoples data.

  11. Hide the disabled 'X' delete button in the first repeating table

    When the repeating table control is used and only one table is displayed, the X delete button is still visible although its functionality is disabled and users attempt to click it. Have the X delete button appear when there are 2 or more tables.

    The ability to Restore a deleted Form from the recycle-bin.
    Forms deleted from the Nintex UI are removed completely from the system with no way to recover, except from a back-up.

  13. 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!

  15. Soap request on Web Request action in Nintex forms.

    Soap request on Web Request action in Nintex forms. Currently the Forms version of the Web Request action only allows Get or POST, it would be very useful if this also allowed SOAP requests like the Workflow Web Request Action does.

    I recently implemented a Solution which interacts with SAP via Web Requests and unfortunately SAP is not able to process GET or POST, which means instead of being able to load the data on the form as the user goes we have had to do this in the workflow and create an additional task for the user to review…

  16. We need sub forms for content types

    Lotus Notes Xpages and Lotus Notes forms allow you to design a "subform". This is for when you have common sections across a number of forms. Design it once then just place it on the form where needed.

    Can we get such a feature in Nintex forms? I would imagine it would be used where you have content types inheriting from other content types. The parent content types should have the ability to create one or more "sub forms" that can be placed on child content types where needed.

  17. Forms Permission Restriction

    Currently there is no way, that I'm aware of, to restrict users who have full control over their site from using Nintex forms. We would like to restrict users from using Nintex unless they have been properly trained. There should be some way to use AD accounts to allow only certain users the ability to design forms.

  18. Custom controls using SharePoint Framework

    At the moment we can develop custom controls using SharePoint Farm Solutions.

    It would be amazing if we could develop custom controls using SharePoint Framework for that, so we can use only client-side code and be aligned with SharePoint best practices.

  19. Get Attachment Count

    SP2013 & 2016.

    We are very happy to have received Attachments in Repeating Sections - this is a great advancement - however, the JavaScript we were using previously is not functional in these scenarios.

    We require a way - in all cases - to count the number of attachments. We may have multiple attachment controls on a form, and they may or may not be in repeating sections.

    Please add this functionality as soon as possible so we can stop using JavaScript for the old forms, and so we have a way to handle Repeating Section attachments!

  20. SQL Request Control in task form does not populate the existing list column values

    Currently the SQL Request Control is able to capture existing list column value when open in edit mode in List Item form, but in Task form it is not pre-populating the original values from the list column. This is the major drawback when we use multi-level approvals with SQL Request control.
