  1. Add Ability to Upload JavaScript Files and be Referenced within K2

    Many times I wanted to add some funciton that is not necesarly an option within the default K2 expression. For example wanted to reproduce some SHA 256... since we don't have any Crypto Functions... try to load a JS function like:

    http://operationblockchain.org/simple-blockchain.html

    Turns out that I create a Data Label and paste as literal but does not get execute correctly. seems like having a folder or library where scripts can be stored and call those once loaded from specific server path will be very useful to allow integrate JS as needed with the ability of review and read in plain…

    Watch for the coming feature to add custom JS into Style Profiles, releasing later this year for both K2 Five and K2 Cloud. You will be able to link external JS files into your Style Profile to use in SmartForms, which should unlock this capability. Try it out when it releases and let us know your feedback. Thanks!

  2. Add "Paste From" / "Paste As" option to Rich Text control

    Currently, we have a SmartForm which has a RichText control.

    Our form also includes some bulleted text (displayed using a label) from which the users copy/paste some or all of the bullets and paste them into the RTF.

    The problem is that the leading/trailing "<ul>" and "</ul>" tags are not copied or pasted. Then, when we attempt to use these data in a report, our PDF generation library often fails (using iTextSharp) due to erroneous HTML.

    We would like a "Paste as Plan Text" option added to the RTF Control. Alternatively, our CMS RTF editor offers "Paste from MS Word"…

  3. Make Rating Control easier to distinguish in Lithium theme

    The rating control is very difficult to read when used in the lithium theme.

    The rating value is displayed in a dark blue (or gray?) on a similar light gray color for not selected, making it look close to the not selected value. If you hover over it, it turns to a bright blue which makes it easy to read.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are exploring a way to include new controls easily into SmartForms, which may address your request. Stay tuned for more information, and we'll update the status of this request as projects continue.

  4. Custom text for True/False properties

    Right now in the item view and list view, Yes/No properties of objects display as "True" or "False" It would be really nice to be able to display alternative language instead of true/false; like, yes/no, active/inactive, on/off. I found some suggestions in the forums for workarounds, but they do not work, or, they are impractical.

  6. Button list control

    Currently the radio button list control is the only control we can use to dynamically show the available actions in SmartForms. We assign this radio button list control to the input section when we are opening a worklist item. For the users it would be much more intuitive and modern if we could also dynamically create buttons like with the radio button list control. This is unfortunately not possible. It is ok if this will not be added to 4.7 anymore but for K2 Five it would be beneficial.

    Many thanks!

  7. Add the ability to change the spinner icon

    The spinner icon shows when a SmartForm is loading. It would be nice to be able to change this icon. This is beneficial because it can allow companies to make their forms more unique. More importantly, it also allows companies to change the icon to fit their needs. For example a company may want the icon to be something that globally represents waiting on the form. (I.E. a clock instead of a spinner)

  8. Numeric Keypad option for mobile browsers

    Add an input type property to text box controls (and other controls as appropriate) to use the keypad instead of the QWERTY keyboard layout for mobile browsers. In HTML5 this is the input tag, type attribute (https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_input_type.asp) . A few useful types include text (current), number, email, url, and maybe password. On most mobile environments, each type has a different keyboard layout.

  9. Add Controls Like Dropdowns and Radio Buttons to a List View

    Having the ability to create questionnaires/surveys (e.g. multiple choice Q&A's) with different controls would be great. Currently I have to add HTML Literal for buttons etc. but your limited to how much functionality you can provide as posting the results back to K2 is really difficult with extensive JS. Having to click to edit each row first is not a good user experience either. Also using the click to edit approach, the controls tend to disappear when back in display mode and show the text value of the control selected.

  10. Barcode Scanning support for Web

    The barcode scanning tool now works for iOS and Android. Can we get it to work for mobile web pages (or any web page)? I want to use it on an application with anonymous access, but the mobile app doesn't support anonymous access (another request).

  11. Excel like navigation in editable lists

    It would be extremely useful to allow keyboard navigation (cursors & Tab) when editing a list. The current implementation of having to click a row to edit can feel cumbersome. A listview 2.0 control would be a much needed addition to smarforms!

  12. View placement in Smartforms

    It would be really useful if we could have more / better placement of views inside a Smartform. For example if I have a form where I have one View in a right panel that is really long and the view on the left is really short. I want to be able to put the 3rd view under the left panel without having a big gap between the two left views.

    See attached image, of how I would like it to be

  15. Form Progress Steps Overview (already available in K2 Community)

    Form Progress Steps - K2 Community

    This is a visual control that displays a linear flow. It could give users a simple view of where they are in the process, and what other steps to take.

    Example. Domino's pizza tracker

    It can populate from a workflow and display client events into a linear progress bar (think of it as a super simplified View Flow), or it could populate from a SmartObject.

    An item is highlighted in blue to mark is as 'active'. If populating from a workflow, this is detected form the SerialNo parameter to detect the current event; otherwise…

  16. Header and Footer Views

    Have a way of telling a smartform that a view placed on the form is a header and should be always on top of the form ie/ above tabs and the ability to tell the form that a view is a footer and should always be at the bottom of the form. This will save having to add custom Jscript to do it and allow non coders to be able to do this. It would also save view duplication. Basically I am talking about sticky header and footers

  17. Modify common properties/styles of multiple controls at the same time

    This feature would rely on the implementation of "Selecting multiple controls at once (https://ideas.k2.com/ideas/APIT-I-29) "

    While building a form,

    • The user selects multiple controls
    • The properties panel will show an aggregate of common properties for the controls selected. This allows the user (form builder) to modify common properties shared by the selected controls.
    • The properties panel will show an aggregate of common styles for the controls selected. This allows the user (form builder) to modify common styles shared between the selected controls.

    Obviously, some shared properties that are unique will not be available to modify with multi-select, such…

  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. 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.

  20. Allow conditional styles for radio button group fields

    If you wish to apply a style to a set of radio buttons that operate within a group you can't you must style them individually which breaks the grouping down visually
