  1. More advanced filtering for connected lookup controls

    Lookup controls allow filtering as shown in the attached screenshot. Filtering however is limited to one field.
    I would love to be able te filter on multiple fields with (multiple) AND/OR operators.

    Hi all,

    We will soon begin the development of the List Lookup control for Universal Forms and take this feature request under consideration.

  2. 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

  3. SQL Request Control - Multiple Fields in Query Results

    In its "Run Now" option, the SQL Request control can use SQL queries returning multiple results. Even a query such as
    SELECT * FROM tableName is valid.

    However, same SQL Request control fails to parse data when having multiple fields.

    In Nintex Forms 2013 Help document, last updated on Friday January 2016, Nintex gives an example of:

    select FirstName, EmployeeID from Employees where Title like 'Title'

    This query fails since we're asking for 2 fields, FirstName and EmployeeID.

    In its current version, returning single result, we have to send a query for each field we need.
    This makes a lot…

    Returning a data set rather than a single value is something we have discussed internally and are interested to explore. We will be revisiting how we query for data as we are building Universal Forms.

  4. IsMemberOfGroup Inline Function Enhancement

    It would be awesome of IsMemberOfGroup supported AD Groups as well as SharePoint groups. Many business requirements want to leverage the existing groups in the AD, so creating another group in SharePoint simply to replicate an existing group to get this working adds administrative overhead. This could be a big win when permissioning forms panels and showing/hiding controls based on memberships to AD Groups.

  6. 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.

  7. Managed Metadata controls in Repeated Section

    Currently it is not supported to place a Managed Metadata control in a Repeated Section. My client uses Managed Metadata for key business Term Sets and it would be very useful to lift restrictions around how these can be referenced in Forms.

    We want to add more controls to the repeating section and this is something we are working on with Universal Forms.

    In the future we should be able to support most controls in the repeating section.

    I will update this feature when I can confirm this will be available in Universal Forms.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

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

  11. Add option to hide controls (such as bottons) when printing to pdf

    Currently (Nintex 2013 I cannot hide controls for printing (e.g. buttons such as print, close, etc.) Would be good to have a common property like "isBeingPrinted"in the formula builder that could be used to hide the element.

  13. Possibility to insert a Digital Signature in a Nintex Form

    In Word you have a nice option to insert a Digital Signature. Right now you are losing that option when you migrate your Word forms to Nintex Forms. There was a great add-on for this ;)

    Hi Auke,

    Within Universal Forms, we now have a digital signature for web and mobile.

    Would a signautre control fulfill this requirement, or do you require a digital signature file upload?

    Please provide more feedback in the comments section below.

    Thanks,
    Euan

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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' ??

  18. Add dynamic dates as Default value in Date/Time picker

    It would be good to have the possibility to assign calculated dates as Default value of a Date/Time control.

    For example: First/Last day of the month, n days from now, yesterday/tomorrow.

    The SQL Request control is only currently available on Nintex Forms for SharePoint on-premise and not Office 365.

    Could we get this supported in Office 365?

  20. 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.
