  2. Disable form submission while form rules are still running

    When dealing with a complex form, rules take a considerable amount of time to run and complete. Then when a form gets opened, an action is made and a form is saved/submitted again and all of that is done in a short time - rules will not finish, resulting in a broken form (e.g. fields not set correctly etc.) See two examples below that are a cause of a submit/save button not being disabled when the form is processing data.

    1. With a new List item being created, if the OK button is clicked more than once then it will result…

  3. Displayed formats such as currency, or comma separated values upon entry into form

    When a user is entering a value it can be displayed in formats such as currency, or comma separated values Similar post suggests use of masks but the default should show currency type and commas when user enters the value into a currency or number type field.

  4. Improve performance by replacing SharePoint's DataFormWebPart control with a better alternative

    There is an aditional load time when using a Nintex Forms List View control, because this utilizes the (slow) SharePoint DataFormWebPart control.

    Please remove this dependency and replace it with a better alternative.

    User experience and acceptance would improve a lot because of reduced load times for forms.

    Thanks. This has been passed over to the development team for review and assessment of alternatives.

  5. Add Validation also for Time not only Date in a Date/Time Column

    At the moment the validation works only on the Date Part not on the Time Part of an Date/Time Column.

  8. End-User Auto-Save without a server call

    It would be great to give the Nintex form the ability to auto-save when the end -users are filling in their forms. Currently we have the "Save and continue" option as well as the ability to do some Javascript that can save but those approaches still do a server call; which refreshes the page, slows down the data entry, can go out of focus and gives a very unfriendly user experience. We would like to give the user the same experience when working on MS Office 365 where their entries are auto-saved every X-Minutes/seconds and add a line on top…

  11. "Select all" - button

    In some of our forms we have 20+ check boxes and then if it is applicable to all options the users have to select everyone of these options.

    Will it be possible to add a control that allows for select all?

  12. 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.

  13. Allow for Geolocation in Repeating Sections

    Use case: An engineer is wandering through the field, filling out some kind of dirt-testing form -- the form is intended to be filled out at the header level with details like the engineer name, date, test-type, company, etc. Then, in a repeating section, the engineer can tap the Geolocation button - get a GPS coordinate for where they stand (more or less), write some details about that spot -- then move 500 ft away, add another repeating section, and repeat that action. The engineer now no longer has to submit a new form every time they move spots, in…

  15. 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!

  17. Nintex Forms access to External Secondary Fields

    We need to get details from external Oracle database using BCS connection and show them on Nintex form.
    We have created external content type which has one primary column and 4 secondary columns.
    And created SharePoint column using that external content type.
    On Nintex, we are able to add newly created SharePoint column but with primary column only.
    How can we add other 4 secondary columns on Nintex form?
    Because we can’t see other 4 columns on available SharePoint columns window in Nintex Forms.

    Note : BCS connection working fine because when we save Nintex form with external SharePoint column…

  19. 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…

  20. 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)
