  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Allow setting of default value(s) for a Person Control in a Task Form, or allow the dynamic setting of Person Control values by Form Rule.

    Allow setting of default value(s) for a Person Control in a Task Form, or allow the dynamic setting of Person Control values by Form Rule. This would be useful in cases where the Task performer needs to adjust an existing list of people. Unfortunately the old trick of using a Form Rule doesn't work here because the Value of the Person control is not available to set. Nintex Support (Case #00430175) confirms that this functionality does not yet exist and there is no current workaround.

  4. Decimal and currency form controls - specify field format

    A lot of our European form users are complaining on the Decimal and Currency fields not allowing comma as a decimal separator (the form control completely blocks entering anything but numbers and dot).

    This escalates quickly from a UX issue to a process error issue when someone submits a x100 value in the field (it's really easy to not notice the comma being 'eaten' by the field, especially for users of the numeric part of standard keyboards).

    It would help greatly if we could set cultureInfo or field format for value parsing on the decimal and currency fields.

    Thank you for your feeback and we can certainly understand the ask.  We are in the very early stages of gathering market data and feedback, like yours. and planning to address within our roadmap.

  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. Nintex mobile : Publish a workflow for a restricted circle of people.

    in my company, we have a lot of workflows published in production with built-in nintex forms.

    We need to group forms by permissions so that only specific people to access them.

    For example, let's say we have HR forms, IT forms, and FINANCIAL forms. we want to publish the HR forms for HR users, IT for IT people and FINANCIAL for the accountants.

    I've tried playing around with the permissions field, but it doesn't seem to impact the mobile app.

    Please develop this feature

  7. Data Look up from SQL Server on a Form

    There needs to be a way to pull/show data on the Form using the Data Lookup from a SQL Database. Many Forms we have information that users can pick or we show users in a label the information that come out of SQL Databases instead of having to hardcode the choices into the drop down choice especially when this data can change or not show them important information they might need to make a decision on the form in a label.

    EX.
    Approved Vendors
    Buildings
    Information pertaining to that specific user

  8. 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…

    Thanks for you input.  So that we are clear on the ask, is the attached page, the page you like to customize.  If yes, what would be your priority list in customization capability? (i.e. 1. Text, 2.Bold, 3.Bullets, 4.Text justification, etc)

  10. SQL Request Control for NWC Forms and Workflows

    In Nintex for SharePoint On-Prem versions, there was a Form SQL Request control. This control allowed you to query a table or view, and to Execute a SQL query, or run a stored procedure. If you selected a Query type of SQL, you were presented with a place to write your own SQL query.

    In NWC, when creating a data source, there is no option to execute a SQL query or stored procedure.

    For the NWC form designer, there is no control that allows you to Write or Execute a SQL query.

    And in the NWC workflow designer, none of…

  11. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Ability to build or get submitted form URL

    The ability to get the URL of the form submitted. We have two scenarios,

    1. We need to send a link to the original form through the task. this eliminates the requirement for us to recreate the whole start form again (No Export import capability which makes things even harder).

    2.We need the capability to use this link on a PowerBI dash board for reporting purposes so the management can see the summary of the data through the dashboard and view the full form by clicking the line item from the report?

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. One response per user

    Sometimes it would be useful to limit responses to one per user. For instance, as I write this we are using NWC to take a survey of all employees (or at least those who will respond), and it would be nice if NWC could prevent a user from submitting more than one survey. I don't have reason to suspect this will happen, but still it would be nice to have the option. Our previous forms software had this capability.

  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. 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.
