  1. Custom theme options for each element in responsive forms.

    The ability to set custom styles and themes for specific items in the responsive forms.

    For example.

    I have added 2 buttons, I want one to show as blue and the other as red. This is currently not possible with the out of box theme designer.

    Thanks for your suggestion Jake. We are currently building our new version of Responsive Forms and reconsidering how the style builder works.

    We may reach out to you in the future for your feedback.

  2. Responsive forms rule to populate people control

    Rules currently allow you to set field value of textbox controls. We would like to use a rule to populate a people control (i,e, set manager field people control based on another people control using user profile lookup).

    Thanks for your suggestion Cassy. With Universal Forms, you will be able to set the value of any control. I just tested setting the People Picker control in a test environment.

    Would the person be hardcoded in the rule? Or would you expect a UserProfileLookup runtime function output to populate the field? Let me know in the comments below.

    Cheers,
    Euan

  3. Validate formula within the formula builder

    Hi

    Firstly I cannot see if this has been requested before, apologies if it has!

    I was wondering if it was possible to have a validate button added to the formula builder screen at all? This would be extremely helpful when creating formulas.

    I have attached screenshot from another program I use which has something similar when I create formulas.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your suggestion Karen.

    We often get a lot of feedback about the formula builder which we are incorporating into our new formula builder for Universal Forms. Our new Formula Builder will ensure the formula validates while building. The builder will not allow you to save if the formula is invalid. This builder will also include help text to let you know if and why the formulas is not correct.

    This has not been released as yet, but once it has been released, I will update this idea.

    Cheers,
    Euan

  4. Cascading Lookups need re-work

    Currently building cascading lookups is cumbersome and very restrictive in where I can get data from. Having to create separate lists for populate the cascading values is not sustainable. I should be able to populate Form variables to filter and pull data from, also should be able to filter and get choices from unbound choice fields. Also the postback that currently happens is a real deterrent from using the controls. Re loading the form and having to scroll back to where you were at, isn't a very good user experience.

    Thanks for your suggestion Dan.

    We will certainly be considering how cascading lookups are configured when we rebuild the List Lookup control for Universal Forms.

    If you have specific feedback regarding your experience, please provide it in the comments section below.

    Thanks,

  5. Sort 'Connected to' dropdown and allow keyboard typing search

    Ability for the 'Connected to' dropdown to be sorted alphabetically. Currently if I have 200 fields, it is hard to find them from the dropdown.

    Also if I can start typing the field name, it should go to the first found item. Makes it quicker for development.

    Thanks Felix. Agree that this would be useful where the number of list columns is high.

  6. Different layouts for New / Edit / Display mode (and print)

    For larger forms it can be quite complicated to manage different designs for New / Edit / Display mode all in one single form.

    In addition to having the ability to use rules, coniditional field properties, panels and custom JavaScript, it would be nice to have additional layouts for this modes like in InfoPath.

    Forms would then be more easy to read and understand for form designers.

    Hi all,

    With the development of Universal Forms, we are looking at how the current form modes are supported in the existing product.

    At this time we are still planning to continue using functions to detect form modes. This is so we are able to support migrations but also give a lot of flexibility in the rules engine.

    We do not plan to bring different layouts to Universal Forms at this time. As we are introducing multipage to Universal Forms, we do need to figure out how a multipage form will be printed and is under consideration.

    I will update this feature when we release an Advance Preview of Universal Forms if our position changes based on feedback.

    Cheers,
    Euan

  7. Generating Forms Preview

    When you preview a Form you need to click the Preview button in the ribbon then on the next screen select the device type and then hit generate preview. I think it would be much simpler and quicker to have a drop-down on the preview button which shows the list of device types, then you just select one and it will generate the preview.. Simpler user experience

    Thanks for your suggestion Rick.

    This feedback has been incorporated into our new Preview mode of Universal Forms.

    I will update this feature when we ship Universal Forms for SharePoint.

  8. Reset 'desktop' layout - but retain others.

    Within the Nintex Forms designer, there is a "reset" button - but that resets ALL forms designs.

    I have a scenario where I need to reset the 'DESKTOP' layout (only) - but can't. I can either reset ALL - or copy from the 'mobile' layout - and can't delete the DEFAULT layout.

    Perhaps the dialog for "replace with layout" could have a "reset to auto-generated" as well ??

    _layouts/15/NintexForms/CopyFromLayout.aspx

    Or - the ability to delete the default layout - meaning 'reset to auto-generated' ??

  9. Sizing Controls

    There should be an option to make one or more controls the same size as another selected control on the form. This is a very common option to have in graphical interface designers, as seen in Netbeans and Visual Studio.

    Select a control: then select X number of controls, right click to get options to "Make controls the same size" >> first selected control is the control that determines the size of all other selected controls.

    As we are currently focused on Universal Forms, this is not on the short to medium term.

    Once we have shipped Universal Forms for SharePoint, we will revisit Classic Forms.

    Euan

  10. Autocomplete Feature

    It would be great to be able to have an Autocomplete feature (similar to google search) built into the forms.We would like for our users to beable to type in the first couple characters and display results based on what they entered above/below. Another key feature would be the ability to click/select on the autocomplete function to fill it in.Lastly, to be able to reference a list and filter that specific feature based on another list within sharepoint would be optimal.

    This is now in the backlog and something we would like to implement with Universal Forms for the List Lookup control.

    I will update this feature when we begin development on the List Lookup control for Universal Forms for SharePoint.

    Euan
