  1. Add dynamic dates as Default value in Date/Time picker

    It would be good to have the possibility to assign calculated dates as Default value of a Date/Time control.

    For example: First/Last day of the month, n days from now, yesterday/tomorrow.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your suggestion Stefano. We are currently building this for Universal Forms for SharePoint.

    I will update this feature when we get closer to the release of Universal Forms for SharePoint.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Are you suggesting a similar capability to the one for actions in Nintex Workflow?

  3. 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 it to…

  4. Responsive Forms: Choose the sequence of controls when window size is reduced

    It would be great if the form designer could have an additional setting where you can select which controls appear in which order when the Form display window is reduced in size.

  5. full form support when using microsoft edge

    we have an attachment control sitting within a panel, depending on status we disable the panel using a rule - in Internet Explorer 11 he attachment control is disabled - you can still open the attachment to view, but the delete link is disabled and the add attachment link does not work - I believe this is the expected result

    however on Microsoft Edge with the same disabled status I am able to delete the attachment , - not what I would expect.

    is there a way to provide the same behavior for both browsers, as our users will be…

  6. Mobile lookups restricted to only 500

    In mobile there is still a restriction of 500 items. Can this be atleast 2000 as web version. The experience is completely different for a user if they navigate using different devices.

  8. Nintex 2016 Responsive Form Not Printing Multi-Select Checkbox Selections

    I am using the responsive form for Nintex 2016 and when we print the completed form, the selections for my multi-select checkboxes do not print the checked selections. The single-select radio buttons, dropdowns, and text fields all print.

    The selections show that they have been made on the electronic version of the form, but the multi-select questions look blank when printed. This isn't good from an audit perspective. There will be times our auditors will need to print the form.

  10. Cancel button fails to set value to connected list column

    The cancel button fails to set value to connected list column. Why are these configuration available when the Cancel button ignores this.

    Please remove these options to avoid any further confusion.

  11. Refresh Calculated Value ONLY Once

    Currently calculated control refreshes data when the form is in:


    1. New Mode

    2. Edit Mode

    3. View Mode

    2 & 3 refreshes data every time the form is being edited or viewed. I have a requirement where this value needs to be calculated only once.

    So, instead of Yes/No, can we have options like once, always and never?

  13. Cascading SQL lookup/filter

    I have a control (SQL request) displayed as a dropdownlist.
    When the user selects an item from the list, I want to make a new SQL request based on that.

    Right now, that's not possible.

  14. People Picker Control that does NOT Validate when editing and submitting Item

    Change the functionality of the People Picker Control so that does NOT Validate when editing and submitting an Item; same as SharePoint 2013 out of the box. It's redundant considering that the people in the field have already been validated when they were added.

  15. In responsive forms auto populated disabled controls with values from rules do not populate the SharePoint column

    In responsive forms, auto populated disabled controls with values from rules do not populate the SharePoint column

    e.g. you have s single line text control with the user profile lookup formula configured, when the form is submitted the data is not recorded in the connected SharePoint column

  17. Responsive rules Mobile / Web

    As some controls / functions work in Mobile, but do in Web eg (lookup function) it would be good to hide this control when loaded in Nintex Mobile. Use case,
    Product lookup for Price, and totaling the prices as selected by user. The controls error in mobile as I'm using a function, so they stay blank. End state would be to allow the lookup function to work in mobile, but in absence of that being able to hide the controls if mobile would be handy. Also if you want to hide header graphics etc, from the nintex mobile view.

  18. Stop making every release of Nintex Forms a breaking change

    Every release of Nintex Forms contains the statement "This release includes changes to behaviors of some controls. The changes may require adjustments to custom JavaScript." without saying which controls are changes.
    This means that every release is a breaking change and we cannot update as often as needed because of the amount of testing and fixing we have to do.
