  1. SQL Request Control Support for Office 365

    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?

    Regards

    Chad

  2. Forms Permission Restriction

    Currently there is no way, that I'm aware of, to restrict users who have full control over their site from using Nintex forms. We would like to restrict users from using Nintex unless they have been properly trained. There should be some way to use AD accounts to allow only certain users the ability to design forms.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  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.

  7. 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.

    As we are currently building Universal Forms, we are considering how the buttons appear on the form and in the ribbon. We are taking a very minimal approach to the ribbon.

    If you have any more feedback, please provide it in the comments section below.

  8. Drag and drop support for adding attachments

    Add the ability for a Nintex file attachment control to support files to be added via dragging and dropping them onto the form instead of using Browse and adding them via the File Explorer.

    Hi all,

    Drag and drop has been included into Universal Forms in our current build. We have no plans to bring this current functionality to Classic Forms.

    Once we have shipped Universal Forms for SharePoint, we will close this feature request.

    Cheers,

  9. 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.

  11. Ability to validate attachment controls

    In Nintex Forms 2013 when creating validation rules, it would be useful to be able to validate the attachment control. The attachment control, when named, does not appear in the list of named controls. It only appears in Item Properties. I have tried various ways and could not get the validation to work (isNullOrEmpty using self on the attachment control, using the attachment item, property, etc)

    Hi all,

    With the development of Universal Forms, we are including accepted file types, rule-based logic for required/not-required, maximum number of files, minimum number of files, and maximum file size. This should also include invalida characters.

    If you have any other requirements, please let us know in the comments section below.

  12. 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

  13. 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.

  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.

    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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

    Thanks

    Thanks for your suggestion Stefano. We are currently building this for Universal Forms for SharePoint.

    I will update this feature when we get closer to the release of Universal Forms for SharePoint.

  18. 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.

  20. 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…
