  1. 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…

  3. Track Changes in Nintex Forms

    Hello,

    Can we please add track changes ability in Nintex forms (just like Microsoft word)? That way it is easy to review and approve changes. I know we can currently look at version history but that does not help the end user. Please add this feature, it will be very useful for approving documentation.

  4. 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.

  5. PDF Layout

    Currently the PDF generation is based on the desktop layout. There is no way to have a field on the PDF view that is not on the desktop layout. It would extremely helpfull if there was a separated layout (PDF Layout), so the controls can be rearranged as needed.

    An eventual implementation would be quite straight forward as all it is necessary is to add a new "desktop layout" to the designer and call it PDF layout. Then the PDF generator would be based on the new layout instead of the desktop layout.

  6. Disable Print to PDF

    If we do not want users to be able to print out forms, there should be a way to remove the Print to PDF button from the ribbon on list item forms.

  8. Push Out Form Updates to Multiple Sites

    We have multiple sub sites that use the same form. I would like to be able to keep a master form template and push out changes to any of the sub sites. This could also be useful for workflows as well. I understand that the columns would need to be the same for all sub sites, but if I make a small change to the template it would be nice to push it out to all sub sites.

  9. 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.

  10. Create Sharepoint Columns from Nintex Forms Design

    It would be extremely beneficial if we can design the form, and when I hit 'Publish', Nintex will create the Sharepoint List columns for us. I have a form for example that has 300 columns. I need to create 300 Sharepoint List Columns, open up the Nintex Forms Designer, and realign all the controls. This is very time consuming.

    In addition to the above, it would be very good if upon opening an existing form from the designer, that it would add any newly created columns as controls to the form. Currently the form only gets populated automatically when a…

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. XML Encoding

    When using the export form function when designing a form, the resultant XML is encoded in UTF-16LE, however the encoding attribute of the <xml> tag in the document is UTF-16.

    This doesn't effect the import function in the forms designer, however when using the REST service (/vtibin/NintexWorkflow/NfRestService.svc/publishForm) from a PowerShell script to automate publishing a form this throws an error: "Exception calling "XmlToObject" with "1" argument(s): "An XML declaration is required for all non-UTF8 documents."

    Would be good to have the encoding of the xml file match the declaration of the file itself.

  17. Ability to restrict Forms Designer

    The ability to restrict workflow designer using site settings - Allowed Workflow Designers is provided. There is also a need to restrict end users from modifying item forms. 'Hiding' the forms button using css isn't flexible enough.

  18. Give option for choice control of returning to last saved choice or using default choice

    I have a form using a choice control to mimic a tab control. I have set a default choice to one of the tabs. I use the choice to display panels that contain sets of list properties so the user can 'page' through the item.
    When I display the item, it defaults to the tab (choice) that was in focus when the item was saved, instead of using the default choice.
    I can see a business case for that behavior, but I would like to see a feature that would allow me to select either using the default value for…

  19. 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.

  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.
