  1. 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

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  7. Option to go back to previous version of smartforms/views/smartobjects

    When we checkout make edits and checking the smartform/views/smartobjects the version number is updated, but there is no way to revert to previous versions.

    Although this feature is available in Workflows, the similar feature to view all the versions of smartforms and revert back to a previous version is a very useful one. This is typical and common in most developent tools.

    Additional features to compare between two versions etc will really help a lot in development.

  8. Display total Number of rows in List view Footer

    Currently K2 (4.6.11) displays a list view with pagination say i have got 95 items to display, it shows up saying i have 10 pages and 10 items each in a page. But it doesnot display the total number of rows present in the list view .

    Also, if the user applies some filter the total count should get updated aswell

  9. Improved Table Cell Formatting Options

    At the minute the options for table borders, and background colours are limited and we have to rely on literal Data Labels to obtain the desired look.

    If we could format the cells rather than the style of the data with colours and borders this would go a long way to solving this. Even better would be predefined table styles with headers etc which we could further customise.

  10. Allow buttons and image controls in list view

    When viewing a list, we want to offer users options for each line in the list. For example we may want to allow a user to view a POD document relating to that record, or book a timeslot, or change the status.

    Although this can be achieve with buttons in the toolbar, it would be much better to have buttons in the list itself.

  11. List view grouping

    It would be useful to add grouping to the list view to allow items to be grouped together with the option to expand the group and see individual items.

    At the minute I have to create SQL views to group data together, which doesn't offer the additional level of interactivity required by users.

  12. Pageinated Listview retain current page when update method called.

    When we page through data on our forms and then update an list item, the Listview rebinds and goes back to page 1. This is incredibly painful. Would it be possible to have an option to maintain the page in which we are currently on.

    It seems to me that the cause of this is that all the data for the Listview is loaded upfront and then paged from K2 and not the database which means that when an update occurs the in memory representation is not consistent has to be reloaded. At this point K2 has no idea where…

  13. Ability to duplicate a rule

    Hi,

    Often a lot of my rules bound to checkboxes or other controls are very similar, so it'd be good if I could just duplicate a rule (perhaps making it unbound?) and then I can tweak a few parameters etc., instead of having to recreate al the logic again (which I typically need to screenshot from the source one to avoid missing something).

    Cheers

    Peter

  14. K2 Supported drag and drop control

    Can K2 create a drag and drop control that can be used on SmartForms. Currently the only drag and drop tool available is on the K2 Community but it is not supported b y K2. We recently found a bug with the community control that actually crashed the IIS service on our K2 server.

  15. Allow option to pull back distinct values for controls like drop downs

    We currently have to build views to pull back distinct values for master data. It would be nice to be able to point to a column and just say "distinct values only". If I try that today, I just get multiple values with repeating instances.

  16. Enable a Simple Navigation and Second Level Navigation to integrate into Views.

    I manage to create a View for Simple Navigation, however many sites and complex apps use navigation, much more elegant than the Tabs. so why not include some navigation control with maybe 1 or 2 levels for easy usage.

  17. Add 3D Barcode Service Broker and standard Barcode generator

    Since we have the ID for each record and the ability to put some metadata, will be really nice to have the option to add a 2D/3D/ Barcode Control that pull information between mobile devices / scanners to populate and extend functionality like Inventory etc.

  18. Enable ability to create your own Smart Starter [ Basic Template ]

    Is very common that our forms will keep a very similar Look & Feel., Company Logo, Generic Navigation. Typical Entry Form, Search Form, ViewFlow, and Reporting.

    If we have the ability to create a Basic Template that has all those out of the box components for our apps, will speed up even more the development of our App. because will be just waiting to create the Item/List Views from the SMO's and drag & drop to the existing Forms.

  20. Include an out of the Box Chart Service Instance

    everybody likes charts, the product will be greatly enhanced with an out of the Box Chart service instance.

    Ability of create typical Chart, Bars and also add the ability of Chart RRDB [ Round Robin Database ]

    This will let keep in a fairly small pace a performance chart of all K2 Black Pearl Activity like
    CPU, Memory, Processes, users

    Similar to: http://oss.oetiker.ch/mrtg/ using the http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/ will give the power of see how is the application/server and everything on K2 Overtime.

    Also will be very useful for report from a particular application developed by the users.
