  1. Admin List of All Mobile Forms

    In Central Admin>Nintex Administration, it would be great to have a list that displays all mobile forms (include web app, site, list, etc.)

  2. Unable to select SQL Authentication when creating Nintex Forms Database on SP2016 and SP2019

    If you want to use the SQL Authentication when creating Nintex Forms Database on Nintex for SharePoint 2016 and 2019 please be aware that this is not supported. Yes, having the option to select (greyed out) SQL Authentication is confusing but be aware that this functionality was not part of SP2016 and 2019.

    However, on SharePoint 2013 you can select SQL Authentication when creating Nintex Forms Database but this functionality was not available on SP 2016 and SP2019 due to security changes.

  4. nintex forms responsive reporting

    Provide the ability to discover how many forms are classic versus responsive. Additionally, one would need to know if a workflow is using a responsive form for the tasks.

    This will be important information when performing migration and other tasks. Currently, Sharegate doesn't support migrating responsive forms. Having the ability to discover them pre-migration will help.

    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.

  7. Ability to create Form Templates with default controls and properties that cannot be modified (e.g Footer section or company branding)

    When creating new Forms, it would be nice to start with pre-baked form templates that include components we may require by governance.

    Additionally, it would be nice if the canvas contained controls or branding that cannot be modified without the correct permissions. This would allow large organizations greater control over governance implementation and help the developers stay in consistent compliance.

  8. Print to PDF: Option to choose mode

    An option that decides which mode is used for printing (or: "switch to view mode for printing"- yes/no) would be very helpful. Our users keep complaining that the printouts look different in new/edit vs. view mode. This option could be on form level or on control level (similar to the "Control Mode")

  9. Print to PDF: Introduce page margin settings

    As we struggle with the same issue as described in community thread https://community.nintex.com/thread/13293-set-margin-for-print-to-pdf I would like to suggest the introduction of page margin setting capability for the print to pdf-section of the form setting page.

  10. Nintex "Site" Level Forms

    I suggested this to Euan several months ago. Currently there are forms associated with a list and workflow. It would be extremely valuable to have a form that is associated with a site (kind of like a SP site page) that has access to all lists and libraries in a site. That way an entire solution could be built out using only Nintex Forms. Also posted this as an idea for O365 Forms.

  11. Responsive Forms - Enable borders for View Forms

    Currently field items are displayed without borders and most of the formatting in view fields. These cause some values that are not filled to look very out of place and orphaned.

    My suggestion is to allow the borders to display on View form but perhaps just fade the fields and remove any X to remove names from lists.

  12. Remote provisioning of Nintex Forms and Workflows for SharePoint 2013, 2016 and O365

    Please, implement PowerShell based remote provisioning of Nintex Forms and Workflows for SharePoint 2013, 2016 and O365.
    It would be even better if you implement SharePoint PnP extensions (https://github.com/SharePoint/PnP-PowerShell, https://github.com/SharePoint/PnP-Sites-Core).

    This would allow integrating Nintext features into existing PnP-based site provisioning templates and deployment packages and would simplify Nintex feature migration between SharePoint sites and farms.

    Current Nintex SDK is incomplete to use it for production purposes and Nintex export/import tools need to be executed on the server, which adds lots of unnecessary overhead in managed multi-tenant environments.

    The remote provisioning tools for Nintex features should be…

  14. Repeating section default xml text

    It would be great if it would be possible to enter a default XML text so that all the new forms would use this text.

    For example som repeating data sets.
    It is neither possible to enter a default text in the multiple lines data type nor to define a default set in the repeating section control. Therefore, there is no proccuption of repeating sections possible.

  16. By default Multi Language support

    Currently, if you want to build a multi language form, you must replace labels by "Calculate fields", then use a lookup function to get the correct value into a SharePoint Translation List.

    This method is only acceptable if you have a small quantity of field on your form, due each calculate field means a request to the list, so 200 labels means 200 request to the list --> PERFORMANCE HUGE ISSUE.

    The other way is building some JavaScript, but it means to add a lot of code lines in our forms (minimum one line par language-label).

    It would be great…

  17. Save, 'email a link' and continue Feature

    With the new features coming in forms of save and continue (which is awesome). Can an option be added so if an end users decides to save the form, an email with a link is sent to the initiator so it is easier to get back to the exact list item.

    This will be especially useful if someone take days (or weeks) to complete the form, and their item in the list is then buried down within the list itself so hard for a user to find.

  18. Hide Edit Item Button

    Would like to have a capability to Hide Edit Item Button for certain SharePoint groups irrespective of the access level they have. Sometimes we may need the users have access to SharePoint List with contribute level to run the workflows and update items but would be great if we can prevent them from editing the item manually.

  20. Allow Attachment Rename If Image

    Create an option to rename image attachments. For example, if someone attaches multiple images to a form, rename them "Attachment1", "Attachment2", etc.

    This would make it easier to view when attached at the end of a PDF than the file name. This is especially important for mobile attachments as you cannot edit the file name.
