  1. The ability to save drafts with a name

    We are using forms as check-lists where the users will have to revisit forms over multiple days. The save draft allows us to do this - however, the users might have multiple drafts of the same form. Therefore we would love a simple feature that allows to save the draft with a name. This would make it easier for the user to find the correct draft instead of going through all of them.

  2. Save and complete task form later

    I would really love to see an option where I can save a task form and edit it later on, like the start forms.

  3. Split the option 'form available as' for Nintex Mobile and My Nintex

    It would be very helpful to split the option 'This form is available as' between Nintex Mobile and My Nintex.

    For example I might want to specify that a form is available in the Nintex Mobile app but not listed on the My Nintex page.

    See screenshot attached for option I am referring to.

  4. Data source

    WHen using a Data source in WFC Forms, there are 2 limitations that need to be dealt with. 1. Data source needs the ability to filter data based on another field 2. Data source needs to be able to handle filters in a view for sharepoint. Since a sharepoint list can technically handle 20K rows most admin create filtered views to deal with this much data. If data source can not filter in the form, then the developer needs to filter in the list.

    Thank you very much for posting your feedback. The data source variables feature today, provides you the ability to create a condition to filter your data on both cases. If we did not understand the feedback correctly, please elaborate further.

  5. Provide whole form data as a JSON object

    Hello,

    I have a workflow with 8-10 levels of approval. The workflow is initiated by an API. I then have to copy the data points (about 100 fields) into a local variable. I then have a task form which will be set with default values from local variable. In essence I need to display all the data received to the Approver.

    Now I have further challenge. Approvers can make changes to data before Approving. After every stage of Approval I need to send a snapshot of information back to the API.

    This means I need to copy the data one…

  6. Create PDF Rule of Completed Form

    The ability from a form rule to create a PDF of the completed form.

    Often on submit customers want to save a copy of the completed form itself in PDF format to a document store for record keep purposes.

    Developers don't want to create a separate report for this purpose, a quick and dirty print to PDF that looks reasonably clean will tick the box for this requirement for auditability requirements.

    The document should then be made available within the workflow to save away accordingly in a workflow event.

  7. Security trim a form so only users who have permissions can access the form

    Capability to show hide forms according to whom business owner decides. Some forms should only be available for few users within the business/department and the process owner should be able to give remove access.

  8. Contributor Permission level with Workflow Variables created from NWC Automate Start menu

    I'll try to make this short winded. The problem or what I want to solve for is having dynamic text (variable) within an NWC workflow form that can change dynamically of something exterior of the Form/Workflow within a Label, Description, or potentially other where a user whom is not a workflow designer can contribute without changing anything or accessing the workflow itself. Let me explain further on the architecture...I'm hoping for a "Contributor" whom owns the process but does not need access to the workflow, think almost a permission level between a participant and designer, where they could potentially see…

  9. Nested choice fields or the ability to sort other choice fields based on earlier choices

    It would be nice to have the ability to use nested/sub choice fields or the ability to filter other choice fields based on earlier choices. For example, I choose A on choice #1. So because of that, choice #2 filters what is available because of a choice selection. Or display certain choice fields based on what is selected from choice #1. I can accomplish the latter with rules but this is painful if you need many sub choices based on the first choice.

  12. Pre-populating Answers and Repeating Sections

    In my organisation, forms need be signed-off by several levels of management before they are complete. If they're unsatisfied with anything, this can be passed back to the previous stage. This means I need to save and recover the current answers, then pre-populate them in the form at each stage.

    Currently I do this by saving answers to a SQL database, then recalling them as a comma delimited string and using a substring to 'cut up' the answers. I did try extracting each answer as a row in a Collection (by using a Pivot table in SQL), but this required…

  13. Allow for HTML/JavaScript within labels or within a separate control on the form.

    If we can add custom HTML/JavaScript to the NWC forms then we can enhance it in so many ways. From adding google address lookups to applying custom themes.

  14. Ability to view & delete list item attachments in task form

    We need the ability to view and delete attachments that are attached to a SharePoint list item, from a task form.

    When approvers need to approve a form, they need to be able to see the attachments associated with the item. And if necessary, they may want to replace one of the existing attachments with a different attachment so they should be able to delete a specific attachment and then upload a new one.

  15. Allow add buttons to NWC form

    It would be very helpful if we could add buttons to NWC forms and specify what value they set to a field. For example, I would like to give my users the ability to click cancel on a form. Then the workflow will perform some tasks (like update the SP list item Status to "Cancelled") and then the workflow ends.

  16. More flexibility with buttons - especially a Cancel button

    I wish NWC had either a default Cancel button or the ability to add one. I have a couple of forms that I'm redesigning in NWC and they are essentially worksheets that have no need for a workflow - they just help the user make a determination. It would be nice if the user could click a 'Cancel' button to clear out the form and start over.

    Alternately it would be nice to be able to hide the 'Submit' button based on a case like this, or to use rules to hide it based on form data.

  17. File Uploads / Signatures in Repeating Sections

    Ability to add file upload and signature controls to repeating sections. We use this extensively in expense systems (uploading receipts per line item) or in approval workflows (approval processes), plus many other use cases.

  19. improve data lookup control with multi-value fields and more

    The new Data Lookup control in the Forms designer needs at least these three additional features:
    [1] Support for multi-value fields (really needed soon)
    [2] Allowing multiple Option Labels that will show as multiple columns in the pull down.
    [3] Selecting a field to sort the option list by.

  20. Style manager or global form style settings

    I'm creating a number of new workflows with start forms and task forms.
    Having to redo the style settings with our corporate colours is becoming quite onerous every time a new form is created.

    Could we have the ability in the NWC settings to add a custom style or somehow modify the style settings at a tenant wide level?

    This would be a big time saver for the development of new forms.
