  1. Require the ability to have a visual representation (i.e. a map function) in some of our forms

    We are building a raft of safety based forms for our remote and mobile workforce.
    One of the key data capture points is the location that the action was performed; currently only latitude and longitude is displayed which doesn't mean much to the technician. In previous versions we were able to use a java script (or similar) link to a google maps type function and display it in the form. This is not available now.

  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. Date picker to allow manual entry

    Our users often struggle to fill in the date picker. I have been asked multiple times to make it easier to use, either by allowing to type a date or to make it behave more like the current browser date pickers.
    Our forms usually ask for a date of birth, and our users have a hard time changing the year. Instead of clicking on the year field they use the 'left' arrow and feel frustrated.

  4. Multiple views and Form Load Rules

    In InfoPath I have used multiple views of a form in combination with Form Load Rules to present a separate form for users on the same list depending on a rule. One example was a separate form for the initial add item and then another view when editing. The rule would just look at a required field and see if it is empty. Another example one form was used when adding and editing the initial record. The form had a field for adding additional lines and I used Nintex workflow to add these with a different value in one field…

  5. Respect tab indentation in custom JavaScript

    When you paste JS code in the Custom JavaScript section in your form settings, the designer wreaks havoc with you code if you use tab indentation instead of space indentation.
    Is is just a pain to work with the designer and JavaScript this way when you have to change something.

  6. 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

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  10. When a user clicks the Today button on the Date/Time field, close the calendar.

    When the "Today" button is clicked after opening the calendar, today's date is populated in the field, but the calendar view does not suppress. Would like the calendar to disappear upon clicking the "Today" button.

  12. Show % of form completed for user

    When filling out long forms with numerous input fields, it would be good to show the user the progress that they made ; like a Progress bar that shows how much % of the form has been filled in and how much is left.

  13. 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.

  14. 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)

  16. Include jump marks to have a more convenient navigation experience (in big forms)

    It would be nice to have a out-of-the-box solution for integrating jump marks or some other kind of advantage navigation possibilities (I think something like "tab order functionality" would also be ok: https://nintex.uservoice.com/forums/229406-2-nintex-forms-for-sharepoint/suggestions/7943961-please-provide-the-tab-order-functionality-its-hi)

  17. 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…

  18. 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. Creating a chatbot equivalent for the form

    Give the possibility, as an alternative user interface, to fill a form through a chatbot. all field would correspond to a question, or natural language conversation.
    And like for Nintex Mobile, the chatbot would be able to gather multiple form and identify in the conversation which one the user want to fill

  20. Adding add new row and deletion of row from repeating section to tab index

    For creating ADA compliant forms the Add new row and the x in repeating sections needs to be added to the tab-index so end users with disabilities can easly add rows or delete rows.
