  1. 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.

  2. 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

  5. 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.…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. filter forms by subsites

    It's troublesome to filter form by exporting and uploading, and every time there is update or new forms to be added or remove, will required recompilation and installation of app. Adding the capability to filter forms for sub-sites could help a lot, as most of the time we structure division or departments into sub-sites or different site collections.

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. Lookup control refresh in Mobile Form

    Would like to see the Form Lookup control to be able refresh in Mobile Form upon opening the Nintex Form on the Nintex Mobile App.

    At the moment we have to refresh the List on the App before opening the Form to see the new update to the lookup control dropdown values.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Give option to resize image taken with mobile app, not just uploaded.

    Currently on the mobile app, there is a "Photo Upload Resize" option that will resize photos that are uploaded with the mobile app to a more reasonable size. However, this only works for photos that were taken outside of the app and uploaded, not images that are taken with the app.

    I'm requesting to have the option to resize (and rename) images taken with the app. This would both reduce size of the form when its submitted, and reduce the time and data required to submit the form.

  17. Collapse and expand the list of mobile forms

    When you are viewing the list of Nintex forms on the mobile app it would be great to expand and collapse the long list of forms. We will soon have over 200 forms on the mobile app and it would help if they were all collapsed to begin with before choosing the form. You could also place a count of forms next to each group title.

  18. 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.

  19. Certificate Based Authentication

    Would be great to have certificate based authentication work for the app. When our staff enrol via our MDM, a user certificate is generated and put on the device and used for Exchange and SharePoint access - therefore not needing a password / not needing to update every time their password expires and changes.

  20. 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
