  1. Automatically set the retention period to "Never" when Sent Items is removed from menu item

    To minimize risk of having to store offline data in the users mobile phone where the custom nintex app is installed, we need a feature to automatically set the retention setting to "Never" once the "Sent Items" is removed from the menu.

    • Content Folders

      In App Studio you should be able to create folders inside Content menu items.
      For example, I can create a new content menu item for User Documents but I cannot currently create sub items under User Documents for organizing my content. I end up with 50 pdfs under one menu option or 10 additional content menu options.

      • Prompt for change password ---Nintex Mobile

        Nintex Mobile has a phenomenon is that if a user changed his password,he open the APP,it prompts password error ,then the user need
        to open the system setting and look around,until they can change it.The operation is troublesome.
        So,when user changed their password and open the APP again.
        Can you pop up the prompt box to remind the user to change the password?

        Our clients are in this situation, so can NiNtex Mobile increase the functionality of APP automatically prompting changes to the password dialog box?

        • Automatically convert .heic to .jpeg uploaded by iPhone X

          Picture taken by iPhone X is kept in .heic format. To facilitate users viewing attachment uploaded by iPhone X, we need a feature to automatically convert .heic to .jpeg when uploading attachment using iPhone X.

          • Add update information to AppDeploy Feature

            It would be helpful to have a comment box when using the app deploy feature thats contents can be added to the app deploy mail information. We'd use this comment box to provide information about the contents and new features of the update.

            • Button in Nintex Mobile

              I think a button in Nintex Mobile would be good.
              Common usage:
              1. go to next step (like a questionnaire)
              2. trigger warning message
              3. trigger an action

                  @Jimmy thanks for offering this suggestion. If we did introduce this control we would not be able to support it in offline mode for obvious reasons.

                  I’m interested in knowing if people would find this confusing or not as today all of Nintex Mobile’s controls work offline.

                  If we begin to introduce controls that are inherently online and mix them with our current offline controls, then the person designing mobile forms and apps will need to remember which is which.

                  Would this cause confusion?

                • 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.

                    @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.

                  • Folder source / sync, for simpler file managment

                    The ability to manage documents in a FSS, One Drive / Box / Dropbox / Google Drive and have the ability to sync them to mobile or not. Rather than attaching them to the Mobile app, which then bloats the app, and also becomes a pain if you want to change any files embedded.

                    • 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

                      • Scan Document Feature using Camera for IOS

                        Since you can't add document attachments for IOS. I would like to request a feature for the attachment control for IOS where it auto recognize edges and auto crops so you can scan documents from the IOS camera and attach it as a PDF.

                        • Set value for list lookup control

                          I am currently using a list lookup control to replace the unsupported lookup() function to get data from a list as described below:
                          I have a list M with columns "User name", "Department", "Approver"
                          I am creating a form in which I want to show the item creator's username, department and approver directly by looking up list M in either text box or calculated field.
                          It comes out that the lookup() function is not supported in Nintex Mobile App
                          As an alternative, I use a list lookup to lookup the department and approver from list M by filtering the username. …

                            The current warning for deleting a child in repeating section is so technical and user-unfriendly. I do not accept this to be shown to my customer. Please allow customisation for the warning.

                            • Validation message in control setting shown in Nintex Mobile

                              Currently validation settings in a control's setting are supported, yet the message is not shown when it is invalid. It is highly user-unfriendly. Although there is the "Rule" feature to validate and show message, the validation formula is limited, without being able to check for regular expression.

                                  • Ability to unpublish a mobile form

                                    While it's easy to remove a link to a desktop/web form, the only way to remove a form from the mobile app seems to be to delete it. It would be useful not to have to do that.

                                    • Support for Managed Metadata Fields in Mobile Apps

                                      Managed Metadata is a core part of most SharePoint implementations yet these fields are not supported in Nintex Mobile Apps which is a major flaw and a blocker for most organisations from adopting the mobile apps.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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…
