  2. In multi-server farms indicate the server that a process error was raised on.

    Add to the Error Logs a column that contains the name of the server that a process was being executed by when it went into an error state.

    Access to some Production servers in certain environments to be able to look at error logs can be an onerous process. If the server name was included in the error log then this would aid in being able to identify where to focus analysis.

  3. Interactive Image control

    It would be good if K2 could host an interactive image control. The only way to do this currently requires JavaScript, and I 've come across various issues.

    Full detail can be found on my K2 Community Post: https://community.k2.com/t5/K2-Five/Interactive-Image/m-p/116316#M5782

    Explanation

    When the user runs a SmartForm, they can click on an image, and depending on whereabouts they have clicked. Logic is in place to carry out a certain action.

    Summary

    For example, imagine an image of a map, which is split into simple shapes/grids to represent different rooms. The user clicks on the image to specify where an accident took…

    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. K2 Technical Documentation

    That would be very useful to be able to generate technical documentation of the Forms/Views/SMO directly from K2 Designer. As it is not possible to search inside of the rules for a Datalabel for example, It would be usefull to be able to generate documentation and search for a specific field in it (even for Application Maintenance).

  6. Provide option to use Input Properties in Create Document Reference step

    SharePoint Online has a hard limit on how many records can be queried in a list. If that limit is reached, the following error will be returned:

    The attempted operation is prohibited because it exceeds the list view threshold enforced by the administrator.

    The Create Document Reference step in workflow only allows user to specify Filters to retrieve documents, but not Input Properties. This becomes a problem when user tries to retrieve a document from a particular folder

    When using Input Properties to specify a Folder path, a property called "FolderServerRelativeURL" is sent by K2 to SharePoint. This allows SharePoint…

  8. K2 Setup Manager backs up all config files before starting

    Potentially a lot of customers have made changes to various *.config files in K2, and potentially don't have a backup of this file (notably the K2HostServer.exe.config and HostServerLogging.config files).

    I realize that as part of the "Configuration" step in K2 Setup Manager, it also makes changes to all config files, but in the case of 5.3 for example, when the SameSite Cookie changes have been made to various web.config files, and K2 Setup Manager is run to resolve a different issue, then those SameSite Cookie changes are reverted and need to be configured again if no backup exists.

    There are…

  9. Allow support for adding multisubnet=true to sql connection string in sql always on scenarios

    This is with respect to setting up the K2 Database for automatic failover via the SQL Always on feature:

    https://help.k2.com/kb001572

    In a scenario where both the primary and secondary replica are in different subnets we will configure the listener to have two IP addresses, one for each subnet. However, due to SQL configuration, once we failover to the secondary replica and need to hit secondary subnet, we will hit the SQL Availability group listener and try the subnet IPs configured for the listener in a serial manner. This causes the K2 product to run into connection timeout issues after a…

  11. Adding column click or column double click event in the list view

    I'm coming from MS Access world (building apps) and there you could build an event when the user clicks or double clicks the specific column in the list view (the specific cell so to speak). In K2 there are only two list view events possible - the click and the double click event for the whole item (row). This is quite limited. If you want to make an amendment to specific cell under certain conditions (and you don't want your users to edit the whole row), or open different subviews for different columns or do any other actions related to…

  12. Exchange Online Smart Object Create Email parity with Read

    I would like to see the Create method in the Exchange Online - Email SmartObject have features identical to the Read method.

    For example, we are currently unable to send email (via Create method) with confidential sensitivity even though we have the capability to read those flags.

  13. Add an option to control for each For-Each Looping condition scope so that it can process full list with paging enabled

    Currently for-each looping against a list view with paging enabled is scoped/limited to the first page of the view. As per product documentation:

    "When you use a For-Each Looping condition on a list view with paging enabled, the condition only iterates on the first page of the list view. If you need to loop through all items in a list view, do not enable paging."

    This limitation is mentioned both in on-prem and Cloud product documentation:

    https://help.k2.com/onlinehelp/k2cloud/userguide/update_11/default.htm#How-Tos/ForEachLoopingConditions/HowToUseForEachLoopingConditions.htm (look under Considerations section)

    https://help.k2.com/onlinehelp/k2five/userguide/5.3/default.htm#How-Tos/ForEachLoopingConditions/HowToUseForEachLoopingConditions.htm (look under Considerations section)

    Although we have limitation documented it is rather natural to expect For Each not…

  14. Easier way to save a form

    When I modify a rule, saving it force met to click on OK, confirm a message, move my mouse to the save icon and then click save. 9 times out of 10 I have to open up the rule again. This takes up lot of time when debugging and testing.

    Please make this save action a lot more faster. E.g. click on save without closing all the windows.

  15. provide expand all in context browser

    It is seomtimes difficult to determine the source of a field when mapping. The alternative would be to provide a tooltip for a field that shows it source, when you hover over the field.

  16. Add refresh feature through right click on select a smartobject object on "execute a smartobject method" rule on K2 smartform

    When ever we would like to add a new rule on smartform "execute a smartobject method", sometime we didn't realize or forgot whether the current smartobject has existed or not. If a smartobject doesn't existed then we must chose to cancel it. And click "select a smartobjects" link again to refresh it.

    I think it's a good idea to have a refresh feature (with right click on a category or folder one level above it) in order to refresh the latest smartobjects.

  17. Implement a "Revert" option in the K2 Setup Manager to restore to a previous version

    With the introduction of the "Recover" option in the K2 Installer, there are some very rare instances where recovery may not be possible, which causes the installer to be stuck in a "limbo" state of not being able to revert/proceed with the upgrade.

    (Say for example you have a new server and no "checkpoint" is available to revert back to/you need to make changes to the K2 Service Account credentials due to a special characters being in the Service Account Name/Password that has the potential to break the installation or another example is that something goes wrong with a production…

  19. Add warning message in case of use of Go to activity from Management site to avoid important issue with split branches.

    We found the following issue:

    https://ideas.k2.com/ideas/APIT-I-1554
    "Fix issue: after go to activity, the workflow stop at the next merge step."

    We heard that it won't be possible to change that quickly, but it would be good, in the short term, to get a popup window with an explicit warning when clicking on "Goto Activity" in Management, to explain that it doesn't work with split branches.
    It would be even better to automatically check if the selected step is in a branch, and then prevent the "Goto Activity" from occurring in such cases.

  20. Fix issue: after go to activity, the workflow stop at the next merge step.

    When we use the standard behavior from K2 Management site "Go to activity", if we go to an activity inside a split branch, the workflow stops suddenly at the next merge step without information.

    We found this as a known issue here:
    https://help.k2.com/support-services/kbs100272
    but we need to be aware about this issue before doing the Go to activity.
    I we are not aware, the workflow stops suddenly at the next merge step without information.

    Reproduction steps:

    Create a workflow with a split.
    Example:

    Task1MainPath
    Split
    Task2InsideSplitPath1 Task3InsideSplitPath2
    Merge
    Task4MainPath

    A-Start the workflow instance.
    B-From the Workspace, validate Task1MainPath to go…
