  1. More Style and Font options

    Workflow cloud forms have very limited font and style capabilities. It is very much a necessity to have a label/title font size, input font-size on controls and a font size option on the label rather than the existing Heading 1- 6 which is very limiting.

    Thank you for your suggestion. We are currently reviewing our style builder and looking at more granular control of fonts and colours.

    I will update this feature when this moves to development.

    Cheers,

  2. Assigning Task to Multiple Approvers

    Allowing a task to be sent out to multiple users/ approvers would be helpful in some situations. I have tried many workarounds with fiddling with variables and keep getting an "invalid email format" error. The only workaround I have found is creating email distribution groups within my org, which is a very messy workaround.

    Hi Clint,

    Thanks for reaching out!
    You’re right, unfortunately there is no work around for adding multiple email addresses to a Task action, other than to assign tasks to an email distribution list.
    The good news is Multiple assignees for Assign a Task is already in our backlog, and awaiting prioritization.

    Just to get a better understanding of your scenario, to ensure we’ll satisfy what you’re trying to achieve:
    - How many assignees would you typically configure in your Task action?
    - Would you expect all assignees to approve the task before proceeding?

    Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!
    Thanks for your patience,
    Kate

  3. Address finder functionality on Forms

    It would be great to have address finder functionality on NWC forms, using Google Address Finder (or similar) so that entering text into an address field would bring up autocomplete options.

    This would give consistency in address formatting, guarantee correct city spelling and postcodes, etc. and allow us use these in form & workflow variables.

    Thanks for your suggestion Philip. After we built the Geolocation control, we found an address control would be possible using the Google APIs. It is in the backlog but not scheduled at this point.

    I will update this idea when we move it to the plan.

  4. Regular Expression

    Having the ability to use regular expression to validate if a users input is valid based to customs rules for that data. Examples would be like phone number formats, not allowing numbers/letters, etc. This is super helpful when doing validation outside of normal validation method.

  5. Current Date in Form Variables

    Today function. In form variables we need a way to reference the current date/time. It's great that we have date functions, but it's quite limited when we can't compare against the current date.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Secured forms on NWC for item submission + tasks

    All the forms (Items + tasks) are now fully public. Everyone who has access to the link can act on it. How can you be sure that your task is not going to be answered by someone who shouldn't have access to it ? You can't. So, how do you secure your workflow? You can't.

    Can we have a way to secure every kind of forms? like a SalesForce / Google/Microsoft "passeport"? and the ability to only allow a list of users (or using wild searches : *@mydomain.com) to connect to this form!

  9. Allow pipe and comma in Choice options

    We frequently have the need to include comma ( , ) and pipe ( | ) characters in our choice options. Is it possible to allow those characters? For example, we have a product whose name is "REALTY|share" and have some forms with choice options along the lines of "Yes, please contact me immediately!"

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Success Information - Form sent

    After submitting a form the form redirects to the success message which is always "Form submitted successfully."
    Although it's possible to route to another publicly available site instead, it would be awesome to just modify the text message to reflect different languages. In our case it would be sufficient to have that text in German without the need to build a whole site for this and host it.

  14. Rulde builder - validate date, when the form is loaded

    I need to build a rule, that a specific date can't be greater than today. So a variable with the current date would be very useful.

  15. Have more than 4 controls across in design

    When placing fields and I have 4 controls, but I may need to change some out but can't due to only having 4. EG>>

    City, Country, State, Zip Code
    If country equals Australia I want the drop down with Australian states
    If the country equals USA I want a drop down that only has USA states, But I can't because I can't design the form to include all the different State fields I require for my rules.

  16. Add category for Nintex Mobile

    In the settings of the form (where we can set the title and description), having the possibility to type a category for the form would be really useful. So that the form can appear in a category in Nintex mobile app.

  18. Create a new data type for Currency

    Create a new data type for Currency, in Nintex Forms so that so that data can be entered in the form “19.590,00”,“2.000.000,00”, “25.560,00”, “900,00”

  19. Add Image in Header of multipage forms

    When designing multi-page forms, it would be great to be able to add an image to the Header area for the entire form. Our main use-case for these forms to date has been external, anonymous forms to capture data back into our systems - in that case, we like to include our company logo at the top of the form. With multi-page forms, the only option I see is to add the logo to each page.

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