  1. Add support for "additional fields" when using SharePoint Lookup Lists

    In Advance Preview, when using native SharePoint lookup list add support for showing the "additional fields" feature as read-only. These values should be refreshed when the primary list item selection changes.

  2. Always show the column alias

    Since renamed columns only change the column alias, enhance the designer to take the extra step and always show the column alias.

    Without this it is somewhat confusing when a rule or variable definition makes reference to a renamed column because the new name may be very different to the old one (only the original column name appears)

  3. Automatically create form title

    In the Advance Preview, the creation of a new form should have a toggle configuration option to automagically create the "heading 1" format title based on the name of the SharePoint List the form is based on. When creating many new forms back-to-back, this is often the first step that is a sensible first step I'm currently manually doing repeatedly.

  4. "contains" should return position string was found

    The Advance Preview has a function called "contains" which only returns true/false currently. It should return -1 if not found, otherwise it should return the beginning character position (origin zero) in the original string. Then it can be used with "substring" to extract a string that skips the search string. For example, substring("3#;Melbourne",contains("3#;Melbourne",#;")+2,255) would return "Melbourne" (the +2 is to skip over the length of the substring being searched for). Without this feature, it would be very difficult to accomplish this capability

  8. Do not mandate that All Project Server Workflows should start with a "Stage"

    There are scenarios where a Demand Management Workflow does not starts with a stage, and has some outside process to complete. While this could be achieved with multiple workflows, it would nice to not have the limitation.

    Thanks for the feedback. As far as I am aware DM workflows require the first action to always be a stage or the workflow will fail compilation at publish time into PS. Interested to hear specific scenarios around what you are trying to achieve.
