  1. 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.

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

    Watch for the coming feature to add custom CSS/JS into Style Profiles, releasing later this year for both K2 Five and K2 Cloud. You will be able to link external CSS/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!

  7. 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.

  8. Ability to specify a style library and custom class property

    It would be helpful to be able to include a style library with a form or view. This would be simpler than modifying and maintaining a theme's CSS files. This feature would be greatly aided by the addition of a custom class property to objects. So that all controls in the designer would have a new property "Custom Class" which would be injected into the class attribute as specified and would allow the targeted application of CSS to elements. Even just the Custom Class property would go a long way.

  9. Allow rules to be viewed without checking out the Form/View, and viewed together

    I often find myself reviewing rules on other previously designed forms or views. This means checking out the form, reviewing the rule, and then remembering to check it back in again.

    Allowing a rule to be viewed without editing would save time.

    In addition - being able to see all of the rules together, separated by event, would save time moving from rule to rule to find a particular action. (E.g. in a formatted list / PDF document)

  10. Selective refresh of database Service Instance - for individual database assets

    Currently K2 only provides for a complete refresh of a Database Service Instance on SQL Server (and I assume other DBs too). For large LOB databases this takes a long time and creates more items than needed.

    • We end up with large numbers of service instance items in the list that will never be used in a K2 Smartobject.
    • It would be useful to select only certain DB assets (Stored Procs, Tables, Views) to be added to the Service Instance when initially creating, or updating.
    • As changes are made to DB assets over time - it would be beneficial to…

  12. REST API - Handle Complex Objects

    When creating a service object connection to a REST API, Complex object types should be able to be handled.

    For example, if I have an endpoint that returns the Request object below:

    public class Request

    {

    public int RequestId { get; set; }

    public RequestClient Client { get; set; }

    }

    public class RequestClient

    {

    public int ClientId { get; set; }

    public string ClientName { get; set; }

    }

    The way the REST connection works currently, the Request.Client property gets returned as a messy string displaying the type information, thereby never allowing me to access the properties on the…

  13. Allow K2 to delete older AdumError*.log and HostServer*.log files

    We should be allowed to have K2 manage the AdumError.log and HostServer.log files that are found in the \K2 blackpearl\Host Server\Bin directory. Older files are not cleaned up automatically, which is a manual process to delete. These waste space and can cause server issues because they are not being deleted in a timely manner. There should be a setting to allow you to delete log files that are older than 30, 60, or 90 days.

  14. Ability to Copy/Paste styles

    Summary

    It would be much easier to customize the look/feel of a form if one were able to either copy/paste style from one control to another, and/or the ability to select multiple controls and modify an aggregate of their shared style properties at the same time.

    Example

    The scenario is an item view with 12 controls paired with labels. The labels all need uniform styling. Currently, one has to style each label individually with the same settings to achieve the desired outcome.

  15. Survey-like/Decision functionality in list views

    Summary

    A feature addition to be able to display a set of radio buttons (or checkbox(es)) in an editable list view column(s) for all rows at the same time that modify a property of the row on change and can be saved through the use of rules (as well as render the correct selected state of the radio buttons or checkbox(es) on load).

    Examples

    1. An sql/smartbox driven list of questions with a 1-5 "Strongly Disagree" to "Strongly Agree" radio buttons, essentially a dynamic survey.
    2. Approving/Denying access for a dynamic list of users.

    I've included a screenshot displaying the workaround we…

  17. SharePoint smart object Select Distinct

    Please allow SP smartojb to return only distinct values rather than pulling back duplicates. We primarily use K2 with SharePoint and are running into several situations where the so is returning duplicate data from a list and there is no way to filter this out.

    Thanks!

  18. 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…

  19. Variables in SmartForms

    It is common need to define and store variables within a SmartForm. This can be useful when you need to get values from a SmartObject which the View is not bound to. For example, the View is bound to SmartObject1, but you also need to get some data from SmartObject2. The only way to do that now is to put Data Labels on the form that can hold values returned by the other SmartObject and hide them. This is rather clunky and cumbersome to manage. Having variables within the form, much like you do in workflows, would be very helpful.

  20. Allow fixed column widths in List View

    It is often times necessary to control the column widths in a List View. Currently, the columns are based on a percentage. Examples when having a fixed column is useful, is when you have a column that has a max size for the data inside of it. You don't want it to take up any more screen real estate than it needs to. It is pretty standard in any list view control (Windows, Web, etc) to have ability to specify fixed column widths for certain columns, and allow other columns to grow/shrink.
