  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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!!

          • 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…

            • 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…

              • 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.

                • SQL Request control for Nintex Mobile

                  Our mobile forms would be more 'smart' if they could query data stored in SQL databases.

                  • Option to Timestamp photos taken in mobile app Camera

                    1. An option to add a timestamp on the photo marking the datetime photo was taken would be great. (similar to "Open Camera" app)

                    2 . it would be great if the mobile app allows the user to choose the camera app to use instead of using the built in Nintex camera

                    • Push notifications

                      When new tasks arrive in the mobile app, it would be great if the app could make a notification on the mobile.

                      And when notification is activated, the app should open with the task.

                      • 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

                          If the app can't connect to the server or an account/profile isn't working anymore, (e.g. password has been changed and the account data haven't been updated in the app yet), the app should show a notification every time it is opened on the start screen.

                          • Nintex Mobile forms content added by 'Add filter' should persist or refresh after update of app

                            Currently when a new version of the app is deployed, any forms added via 'Add filter' where 'Show only listed forms' is selected, disappear. The only way to get them back is to do a clear data and refresh. This happens on iOS and Android after every app update. This is a support headache and a poor user experience.

                            The forms need to remain or be refreshed if they have changed.

                                    Lot of times in Nintex Mobile you leave current screen while filling out information, which makes it user unfriendly. Having on screen data entry would increase app popularity and user friendliness.

                                    • Signature Support for Mobile App

                                      An easier way to be able to sign ( touch, actual signature ) on mobile devices. I have seen some scripts and other methods but this is not straightforward.

                                        • Limited Mobile app - SharePoint connectivity - save as draft

                                          Cannot save form to SharePoint as draft - e.g. a multiday job cannot be carried forward to the next day and continued by a different set of workgroup (users).

                                          e.g. Hazards in a draft are not reported to SharePoint/other systems until is submitted (live Hazard reporting)."
