  1. Build custom HTML for Nintex Mobile/App Studio

    We need to apply some custom links filled in a variable containing a variable of a href tags, in which each single hyperlink should show following code:

    <a href="{WorkflowVariable:var_url}" target="_blank">{WorkflowVariable:var_url_name}</a>

    This custom URL will need to be displayed in Nintex Mobile/App Studio. At the moment this is not possible using a "Multi Line Textbox" Form Control with "Rich Text" or "Enhanced Rich Text" in "Nintex Mobile Phone" or Nintex Mobile Tabled".

    Also tested with other form controls such as "Label" or "Calculated Value" with the same result.

  2. Ability to save form as PDF from Nintex Mobile

    Currently our Nintex Mobile users are requesting the ability to save a form completed on their mobile device as a PDF. (Offline for example). This way they could potentially AirDrop the pdf to another user (without requiring data/wifi).

    Thanks for your suggestion Brian.

    Would you expect to define a printing template to ensure the correct structure of the data (like Document Generation) or would you prefer a straight HTML conversion?

    Cheers,
    Euan

  3. Distribution Lists Tied to Azure AD

    Use Azure AD to provide a list of users for distribution to App Studio

  5. Convert handwriting to Text

    The ability on mobile devices to complete forms by writing with a stylus. The handwriting is then automatically converted to text and stored as usual. This allows mobile forms to feel like more like pen and paper.

  6. ability to print to a bluetooth connected device

    I have drivers that have mobile printers, It would be huge to be able to print to this device, but there is no way to select to printers connected to the phone or tablet.

  7. Support Responsive Forms for Nintex Mobile PC / Windows 10

    According to Nintex Support, Responsive Forms are not currently supported on the Nintex Mobile App for Windows.
    This means users on Surface tablets for example will be unable to complete offline forms built using responsive forms.

  8. It is not possible to view/edit the list lookup configuration after it's been inserted, in Nintex Workflows for Office 365

    Currently, if configure an Update list item action, and configure to update an item property based on a list lookup value. Once you have inserted the list lookup value, it is not possible to revisit this and amend the configuration.

  9. Nintex App Studio doesn't generate fullsize app icons

    When using a custom app icon, of 200x200plxs, icon does expand across the entire space available for it, and instead a white boarder is shown around the icon space.

    This is visible when the icon is a colour other than white.

  10. SSO for Nintex Mobile and App Studio

    To support shared tablet (iOS/Android) we need SSO support. We can use Air watch to handle multiple users but we can't get this to work without SSO.

  11. Ability to display mobile forms via Nintex Mobile within a specific location perimeter (geofence)

    Consider a field-based employee that needs to enter data at multiple site locations. It would be extremely useful to display ONLY forms within a geofence of say 1/2 mile radius (configurable).

    In today's technology, this would be a great feature to have.

    under review  ·  John Corry responded

    @James This is a fantastic idea. Would the idea be that the user is only able to open the form at that location or do you see the feature as more of a filter that helps him find the relevant for the location?

    We should also considered the reliability of getting a GPS position when in built up areas. Restricting access to a form could be annoying in this situation.

  12. Support MFA using Microsoft Authenticator

    Support multi factor authentication. This is a requirement for accessing our SPO environment. This app is unusable to us without this support

  13. Landscape mode for Android devices (esp tablet)

    Need landscape mode on Android tablets. Most of our users would have a keyboard so portrait only is joke. May switch to another forms app product if no landscape mode for android coming soon!!

  14. Allow disabled fields to be saved

    Currently, if you disabled a field by a form rule, the value of this field will not be saved.

    This is quite confusing, due some times we need to set values automatically (and conditionally).

    For example, Validator 2 (people picker) must be:
    Johan Wilburg if my affiliate is UK (disabled, due it's automatically set)
    Anne Parnet if my affiliate is France (disabled, due it's automatically set)
    Other cases field not be set automatically and user must set it value manually.

    I can build rules to do that, but the problem is: If someone creates a new form or edit an…

  16. Add ability to include digital signatures with Doc Gen for PDF and Word docs

    Since customers are paying extra for the ability to generate documents (PDF's specifically in our case), the ability to have those signatures be included in the generated PDF is critical.

    We have a customer who requires employees to digitally sign a mobile form in the field immediately following an evaluation (often with no network access, so DocuSign is not an option). The workflow generates a PDF of the form and copies to this PDF and a list item to a separate site collection.

    The ability to render the signatures in the PDF should be included in the standard functionality, especially…

  17. Printing offline

    We have seen a few use cases where people are in remote areas without cell signal and they need the ability to print a form offline. I.e. a field agent is doing a consultation and they need a stakeholder to sign off on something. Sometimes the stakeholders refuse to sign on a tablet, in which case the agent will print the form to a printer hooked up in their truck. If they do sign on the tablet they would want a record of their signature and printing would be useful.

  18. Allow Offline Images that are Site Assets

    Allow offline images on the mobile form that are assets behind firewalls or in O365 environments or from the same SharePoint site the form is downloaded from. Currently, only publicly available images are possible.

  19. Push new version of form to users

    When I make a change to a form and then publish it, it seems like my end users need to know about this and make a manual update of the forms.
    It is important that the forms are updated on the devices - otherwise some users may still be using the old version, which could be dangerous.
    I was informed by Nintex that this is not a feature to expect from in the product:
    "Please be advised this is not something that we support at this stage. At this stage a best practice would be to ensure all users are…

  20. Lookup in inline functions

    It would be nice if a form used in the Nintex Mobile apps could lookup values of a sharepoint list when that lookup is used in an inline function. This would help use dynamic or parameterized business rules.

    Thanks for your suggestion Imanol. We are currently building Universal Forms, a new Form technology, where the same engine will run on SharePoint, Office 365, Nintex Workflow Cloud and also Nintex Mobile.

    We are aiming to have the same experience across all platforms we support – supporting lookups in an offline mode is more complicated however.

    We are currently considering how data may be cached but also considering if external data is required, the app should have network connectivity.

    We will update this request when we have more detail to share.
