  1. Ability to Copy and Paste Rules

    Example: I have one rule I want to split into two. Rather than having to re-create all conditions and rules, it would be great to copy the rule, and delete from each the conditions that no longer apply.

  2. Copy and Paste SmartForm Controls

    It's be requested for copy and pasting of rules, but the copy and paste functionality should go far deeper and at least in supporting the duplication of controls in the SmartForm designer.

    When creating controls with specific formats, sizes etc having to drag and drop them one by one and go through the configuration process is a waste of time and effort. It would be far more efficient to be able to copy and paste objects as you would in a normal IDE.

  3. Add visual widgets, nav elements, and charting to K2 Forms

    I swear I've submitted this before, but it's not in My Ideas. Forgive me if it's a duplicate of another.

    FYI, we're on K2 5.1 (soon to be 5.2) on-prem.

    I see a fairly easy way for K2 to distinguish itself from its competitors on the Forms side. Why not create various widgets, which would be controls draggable onto the form from the Toolbox, and powered by data from SmartObjects:

    • Accordion. Hook it up to a SmartObject to determine the headers, sub-items, and URLs they link to (if desired).
    • Fly-out / megamenus. A SmartObject would dictate the structure of the…

  4. Make the Forms look more modern

    When compared to every other Enterprise Application we use, K2's SmartForms look like something straight out of the 90s. Please make it look like at least something out of late 2000s!

  5. Looking for more flexible view layout on forms

    Unless I'm missing something, it appears that when you place multiple views in a row on a K2 form, they're automatically set to have equal widths on the form (with each one at 50%). The width can be decreased on each one so they're below 50% of the form, but not increased. See the attached file, where it shows the view as at 100% of its possible width and won't let me go over 100%.

    I'd like to be able to have a more flexible layout so I can change the widths to be 60/40, 70/30, etc. I googled this,…

  6. Open File Attachment in new tab instead of downloading it.

    Or make it a choice. Whether it can be downloaded when user click the attachment, or it can open in the new tab. This would ease user to view the document/file content instead of downloading it.

  7. Include variables when copying and pasting text in K2 Designer

    When you copy and paste a string of text in the Designer, it will convert variables and fields to plain text instead of copying the actual field. It would be really useful if the fields were included in the copying. For example mail-events would benefit a lot from this, but I can imagine that copying and pasting inside rules would also be a lot easier and faster.

  8. Rich Text Control Hyperlink to use selected text as default value for Display Text

    Enhance the Rich Text Control's Hyperlink functionality to default the Display Text to selected value in the rich text control when it is launched to be consistent with other applications such as Word and Google Docs

  9. Data import functionality from csv or Excel

    It would be great to have a functionality where the system can allow to read the data from an uploaded excel. Currently we are doing this with workarounds i.e. via SharePoint event receivers etc

  10. Ability to retain Text formatting (bold, underline etc) when pasting text into K2 Text Area Control

    When you have a form with text area control boxes for the purpose of users being able to add text to them by copying and pasting text from a Microsoft Word document, the pasted text lose all their formatting.

    Formatting done in Microsoft Word, such as Bold, Italics, Underline and superscript all are removed, which is a problem when you have users submitting Assignments with many thousands of words in them and are constructed in MS Word, then lose all formatting when pasted into the K2 Text Areas.... The user cannot be expected to re-do all the text changes in…

  11. Create a robust calendar list view (that's better than SharePoint's)

    SharePoint's calendar app/list (Classic view) is pretty good, but leaves a lot to be desired. Calendar overlays are clumsy to work with, and it's difficult to build calendars that can dynamically and intuitively filter by certain criteria (list columns).

    We've found for certain projects that a K2-based calendar would help us, especially if it had certain features:

    • Use Rules to filter events by the values of SharePoint columns. Let the value of a filter dropdown control what events are shown on the calendar.
    • Allow or disable creation of new events based on the values or aggregate values of other events…

  12. Allow to setup the date time format of the worklist control of SmartForm Designer

    It should be useful to have the possibility to setup the worklist control like control "Calendar", but having a "Styles", tab "Format" and choose "Date and Time".
    It will be interesting like this to have the date time of the Workflow displayed according the region of the user.

  13. Copy to Clipboard

    JavaScript has the ability to execute the command "Copy" which copies the selected text to clipboard.
    I attempted to make it happen with a Data Label, but it did not work. This would be a great feature to have available.

  14. Picker Controls with Multiple Values

    When you have a picker control that is set to allow multiple values only the identifier property is populated. The other properties are blank.

    For example if you have a picker bound to UMUser with the identifier set to FQN. When you enter a single user all the properties are available (i.e. name/display name/manager etc). When you add more than 1 user to this picker the name/display name/manager etc) are simply blank.

    The use case here could be that you want to display the managers for the users selected in the picker on the form in a semi-colon delimited list.

  16. incrementing number control

    would be great to have a control which is basically 2 buttons and a text box. the text box starts with a value of 0, when you press the + button, number increments by 1. when you press the - button, it reduces by 1

    having the ability to specify the amount that you would like to increment or decrement would be good also, ie plus/minus 2, or plus/minus 5 etc etc

  17. Evenly distribute columns in designer

    When editing a list view it would be useful to be able to select a column range and evenly distribute the columns. An alternative would be the ability to type in column widths rather than dragging them to the desired width.

  18. Allow 2 users to work on the same process

    Today, locks do not allow to inspect or work in groups on the same process, this is very limitating.

    2 options: first, don't put lock if only inspect is required, second: manage locks and "read-only" mode.

  19. List View Paging 1 of x

    One of the most commonly requested features asked form me is for the list view page to show how many pages. Currently, it just says page 1, and you have to click through to find out how many pages there are.

  20. Hidden Controls Leave Whitespace Behind

    If I have a straightforward table of controls (two columns, label in first, control in second), and need to hide/display some of those controls depending on selections on the screen, the hidden controls leave whitespace behind, making the display of the data unbalanced. If you have two or three controls that are in consecutive rows and hide those together, you end up with a large chunk of white space chewing up real-estate on your screen. To get around this I have to stack tables, and show/hide the tables. This wouldn't be so bad, but it adds the padding between controls…
