  1. Dynamic Repeating Table/Section or default values for repeating sections

    We have many large checklists in use which cause performance issues on Nintex Mobile and it takes us very long to create all these forms/lists. Would it be much easier if we could create on checklist form with a repeating checklist section included which is dynamically changed (filled with different questions) based on a dropdown field. This would save everyone time and should also be much quicker on mobile devices.
    There is a solution in classic forms to fill a repeating table with JavaScript but this is not supported on Nintex Mobile.
    Alternatively it would be an option to have…

      • Rules which apply to pages in forms

        New page functionality is great! Wouldn't it be nice to make the pages conditionally appear based on other fields.

          • Task delegation

            It could be useful to have delegation concept also for tasks in NWC, it should be done through the task dashboard or through API.

            Delegation could be done by an administrator or by the assignee (it should be possible to disable this capability for the task assignee, like in on-prem version of Nintex Workflow)

            • Repeating Sections

              Repeating Sections similar to SharePoint forms. We have a requirement to fill out data for every country the user interacts with. It can vary enormously and the user-case would be perfect for a repeating section. We need it based on WFC though.

              • Ability to resubmit form that is entered thru NWC.

                Currently the NWC forms are once off so if there is something that the approvers would like the user to update, it can't be done. It would be great if you can come up with the ability for users to resubmit or update the form data.

                • SharePoint Online for Document Generation Action

                  It would be really nice to have the option of SharePoint Online for the DocGen Action.

                  On the Office 365 side only being able to use OneDrive for DocGen is very limiting. We need to be able to use DocGen from SharePoint Online as well. This allows us to create anonymous forms for O365 or for example if I am working within a Sales Process, I would want to get my DocGen Template from my Sales SharePoint Online Site and then Store it back there and/or Salesforce.

                    Hi Ben,

                    Thanks for your feedback! I’ve added SharePoint Online for Document Generation into our backlog. I’ll update this ticket as we progress this feature through.
                    Thanks,
                    Kate

                  • Populate a NWC Forms single choice Form control with JSON objects from custom API

                    It would be good if we could automatically populate a single choice Form control (in my case it would be a drop-down list) using JSON objects obtained from a custom API (maybe populate the list by using an on Form load Rule?), and have it submit the supplied 'value' upon submission (in my case it would be a UID relating to records in our bespoke system).

                    This functionality I am after already exists within the Workflow Designer, via the values defined in the x-ntx-dynamic-values JSON vendor extension, but it does not appear to be possible within the Form Designer.

                      Thanks for your suggestion Sam. We are currently looking into our Data Sources feature which allows you to connect to different systems and populate a drop down control.

                    • put Header fields in triggering conditons for Rule Builder

                      Header fields should be choices for the "When " condition on the Rule builder, to allow for easier conditionals.
                      Example:
                      When [header field] Visible (yes)
                      Then [another question or header field] Visible (no)

                        • save and continue button

                          It would be nice to have some sort of Save and Continue button in NWC. If we could save a form can cache the data or something and have the ability to comeback and finish it that would be great.

                          • Return Box File Id and Folder Id Variables

                            For the Box connect, the Id's for all of the objects (Files & Folders) is extreeeeemely important to return as variables. For instance, I can create an Xtension using Box's OpenAPI/Swagger spec, but I cant do anything with because all of the APIs require the fileId and folderIds.

                            • Variable type conversion, numeric value truncation and groups

                              Hi all,

                              I recently hit a wall with a project involving Doc Gen and Workflow Cloud. I managed to work my way through it but a lot of what I was trying to get working felt like options that could be basic actions within the designer.

                              I was working with registration and attendance values for an event, these get entered as integer values into a form that then triggers the workflow. As I wanted % turnout I did the standard divide then multiplication calculations but the resulting value is returned as a 0. I quickly realised this was because I…

                                  • The ablity to rerun a workflow, especially one that starts from a form

                                    I had a workflow that failed from a form start and had no way to restart the workflow or retrieve the information that had been entered into the form. Once I fixed the error in my connections, I couldn't rerun it. I also couldn't access the initial information in the form. The data the user had entered is lost and I can't track down any information about what was submitted.

                                    • Set field value = browser query parameter

                                      Rules builder now allows the checking of a browser query parameter to conditionally format the form. However, what would be exceptionally valuable would to be able to set the value of a form field equal to the value of the browser query parameter. If this was possible, we could generate the URL to the NWC form with parameter (unique GUID) in SharePoint, send it out to a user, and then match the submitted form back up with the parent process in SharePoint. At the moment, rules only allow form fields to be set to a hard coded value.

                                      • Rule to set a different Text Mask

                                        For a phone field, the text mask needs to be different based on the country.

                                        eg US = ***-***-xxxx AU = xx-xxxx-xxxx

                                        Post code mask

                                        US XXXXX, AU XXXX, and UK has multiple masks.

                                        • Secure Datagateway to on-premises LOB system

                                          As pr. now if we need to connect to on-premises LOB data from O365 workflow/form or Workflow Cloud, we need to make the SQL server/LOB system available through internet. For many this is not an option. Please consider a solution like Microsofts Datagateway for Flow and PowerApps. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/gateway-reference
