  1. Runtime functions for operation (+;-;*;/)

    I need the runtime functions for simple operators (+; -; *; /) available for Nintex mobile (IOS System).

    Nintex Mobile does not recognize these operators and only recognizes runtime functions but there are no runtime functions for these operators.

        • Add image metadata

          When users take/add images to their forms submission, sometimes they want to add extra information to it such as a description. The ability to annotate text as metadata would satisy this requirement.

          This applies to Nintex mobile and Nintex forms.

          • Ability to action SharePoint online tasks and see forms submissions in the Nintex mobile app

            Most of our online forms requirement has an associated task approval after submission. We currently have an initiative to migrate to SharePoint online and having the task and list item submissions visible via the Nintex mobile app will be of great value for our specific use cases.

              • Controls

                I'd like to suggest that the controls made available in the app be refreshed for a more modern mobile look. Currently PowerApps has a number of mobile friendly controls that are very useful that I believe Nintex Forms for Mobile would benefit from. In particular;

                -a slider control for values between a Min and Max amount
                -a timer control that allows you to perform an action on the form after a certain amount of time has passed
                -ratings that give the user a nice visual way of giving something a rating in the app
                -PDF viewer allows PDF's to be…

                • was an unsupported feature as for mobile app, lookup control doesn't support insert reference token such as current user token

                  for mobile app, lookup control doesn't support insert reference token such as current user token. Please make this consider this feature in a later release as it results in error on the mobile app due to the token issue.

                    • Support attaching files, other than images, in iOS

                      Currently, the iOS version of the Nintex Mobile app only allows attaching image files from the Photos library.

                      It would be great to have the ability to attach other file types, such as PDFs or Office documents, either from the iOS device itself or from a cloud-based location like DropBox or OneDrive.

                      • People Picker: only allow users of SharePoint group

                        In SharePoint people picker column settings I can define a SharePoint group. In desktop forms the people picker will only allow people from that very group.
                        However, in Nintex Mobile the field still resolves all users from the Active Directory. We can't give all names out to all users and would want to have the same behaviour as in the desktop Nintex Form layout.

                        • Capture Users Mobile Number

                          Would be great if there is a 'Phone Number' field if the form could auto fill the current users mobile number. This would help speed up form filling for end users.

                          • Connect to environment and do away with import / export

                            When in App Studio, rather than having to import a form from to filter on, having the ability to connect to the NWC / O365 / OnPrem via Live to bring up a pick list of available forms to include in the app.

                            • Deletion of existing apps

                              At the moment it's not possible to delete apps, instead you can just overwrite them. It would be great if it's possible to really delete them, if not needed anymore.

                                    • 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…

                                      • Improve compatibility of deep linking from app studio apps.

                                        Background
                                        In App Studio the URI Schema is “ntx-[SomeAppIdICreate]”.
                                        In theory, on a device the app is deployed to I can use a deep link such as “ntx-[SomeAppIdICreate]://” to open the app and also have options around prepoulating fields and specifying the form.

                                        Issue
                                        A hyphen in the URI Scheme is often not supported by many QR readers or generators.

                                        Symptom
                                        The QR Code when scanned is seen as Text and will not launch the App.

                                        What I am trying to Achieve
                                        I have a QR Code with a url that prepopulates some fields and specifies the form to open.…

                                        • Remove App Login Pin or Make optional

                                          We have many users who pick up an iPad from a small pile to go out and do an inspection using Nintex Mobile forms. Where a user account can be used to log into the Nintex App on any iPad, the Pin can only be used on the iPad it was set on. As a result this has become a big issue. Can this pin either be removed or made optional.
