  1. Remove "Shared Tasks Forms" feature - it is too buggy to use.

    Shared Forms is difficult to use and does not bring any value to the workflow designer, it more error-prone than bringing value.

    For example, the warning message "Would you like to like to modify a different instance of the form?" can only be answer with Ok or Cancel, where it should be Yes/No
    Ok modifies a new instance
    Cancel modifies all the forms.
    There's no way to cancel this warning without exiting the designer and losing all the unsaved work.

    It also happens a lot that when modify a shared form, the whole task is replaced, not only the form.…

  2. 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…

  3. Move the "Delete form" button far away from other popular buttons such as "Close".

    I truly believe that the delete form button should be either moved far away from other common buttons or have further steps added to complete the deletion such as "Fill out the following word to confirm delete"; especially considering there is little to no way to bring back a deleted form.

  4. Allow checkboxes or alternate UI options for Managed Metadata Columns

    Allow checkboxes or alternate UI options for selecting Managed Metadata Column data in form control. The stock SharePoint TreeView interface is not user friendly.

  5. Form variables in default control values and in labels

    Currently, there is no option to use form variables in default control values and as reference values in labels.
    Examples:
    * Pre-populate default values depending on the user group membership in new forms.
    * Switch between different form views controlled by a drop-down depending on the user role.

  6. 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.

  7. People Picker validation on Form submission

    At present when a form is submitted the people picker control is validated on user login. Can this be changed so the control is validated using Email address instead of the login name.

  8. Calculated Value controls should support saving to a multiple lines of text column

    This control should support the ability to save to a multiple lines of text column. Currently it is able to lookup text with the lookup() function from a multiple lines of text column. It ought to be able to save to such a column as well.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. List Lookup control should support the Multiple lines of text sharepoint column type

    Because of how I designed 2 forms over 2/3 of a year ago, I need to spend extra time to perform a certain request for a client. I currently need to update 5 different choice controls with information that already exists in another list.

    What leads to the issue described in the topic is that in my research to move this information out of choice controls and into a list lookup required me to set the column types to single line of text. Now, the list lookup control does support this, however one of the columns allows multiple selections, and…

  12. 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…

  14. prevent users from deleting rows in repeating section

    Would like to have the ability to toggle if users can remove rows in a repeating section using a runtime function and a named control. Currently on both classic and responsive, nintex forms only lets you use an expression where you can use inline functions and item properties.

    What could also work is perhaps having the abillity to hide the "x" in the repeating section.

    Use case could be a process where users add comments or data to a form but should not delete other peoples data.

  15. Hide the disabled 'X' delete button in the first repeating table

    When the repeating table control is used and only one table is displayed, the X delete button is still visible although its functionality is disabled and users attempt to click it. Have the X delete button appear when there are 2 or more tables.

  16. Control to mark the end of the form, anything past will not print

    There ought to be a control that when placed on the form will mark the end of the printable version of the form. This way you can hide any buttons or other controls from being printed if they are below this control on the form.

    Thanks for your suggestion Kevin. We are working on bringing the forms engine from Nintex Workflow Cloud to SharePoint in the future. That will bring all the changes (including column increase) to SharePoint when released.

  18. SQL Control - Server and Database Global Constants

    Each SQL Control needs to have the database server name specified as well as the database name. Please create a global form constant functionality that can be used to specify these values. We have SQL controls on 50+ forms and in the case a server name or database name changes, it is a painful process to locate each sql control, update it, and publish the form.

  20. Get rid of lines on controls by default

    Remove the lines on all controls and labels by default or make a setting, they just clutter things up and look terrible. Having to go in and adjust the CSS on every form every time is a pain. That pesky top line is a weird choice. Usability is inclusive of appearance and clutter.
