  1. 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.

  2. Cascading AutoComplete control in EditListView

    When we use cascading autocomplete controls in listview/editable list view, then the nested controls are not loaded with actual values. Autocomplete controls change events are triggered multiple times and is not retaining the actual value. There is an option to dropdownlist to overcome the same but the same is not built for autocomplete control. This will be an added feature for autocomplete control.

  3. Allow for functions to be used in Transfer Data

    Instead of requiring an expression which needs to be computed all the time during runtime, allow functions to be added to fields within Transfer Data.

    This might entail better performance, but will certainly improve user experience for simple calculations such as a +1 when setting up a For Each rule, for instance.

  4. Correct picture display, to match display in windows

    Some pictures who show up in portrait mode in windows are shown in landscape mode in K2. This has to do with something called EXIF metadata. Windows responds to this EXIF metadata and shows the picture upright, but the image attachment control ignores this and shows the picture in landscape mode

    I suggest that the image attachment control supports this EXIF metadata for orientation of the picture, so you don't get any mismatch between what users see in windows and what they see in their form.

    I had a support ticket logged for this, but this doesn't give a viable…

  5. K2 SmartForms Dark Theme

    It seems all major app vendors are creating a Dark Theme for their apps. This can be a long term (read: low priority) idea, but I think it makes sense to provide a default K2 Forms Dark Theme, especially for mobile devices that use OLED screens so they can save a bit of battery power.

  6. Ability to set name for an advanced rule

    This would make the logic more readable. At the moment you have to open the rule or add a comment to understand what the rule does.

  7. Worklist Control Improvement

    The new worklist is lacking few properties. I have added the screenshots from the K2 4.7 webpart. I would like to see some sort of workaround to get these features back in K2 Five.

    1. The coloured flag next to the Folio column do no change in colour e.g. if the order is 24 hours old it should change to red to highlight this order needs to be approved first as in the K2 4.7 webpart (Screenshot attached)

    2. The sorting of the order by the Task Start Date is not sufficient. they need it show the date and the time that…

  8. Export to Excel - Advanced Mode

    Hi,

    It would be very helpful to have kind of an "advanced mode" on the Excel feature that will allow the developer to specify the following elements:

    • SmartObject Name: MyRequest
    • SmartObject Method: List
    • SmartObject Parameters Names: Requestor;YearOfCreation
    • SmartObject Parameters Values: Amanda;2020
    • SmartObject Returned Properties Names: RequestID; RequestStatus; RequestTitle
    • SmartObject Returned Properties Display: Ref; Status; Title
    • Excel Name: My Requests_2020.pdf

    That way any excel could be generated with specified excel columns and parameters without having to create a specific List view associated and load the data to the screen before before generating the Excel document.

    Thank you,

    Amanda

  9. Get intial value from picker control to filter resolve call

    We use a picker control for a big amount of data (380k++ Items)

    So the "get items" method takes 10 to 20 minutes - so it is not possibe to populate all the data at form start or even cache all the data asynchronously because it takes way to long (caching even does not work because of the memory that the browser uses then...)

    but in the Smartobject the "get items" method can be given a filter value that speeds up the method greatly (only a few seconds)

    for example, I type in my picker "0930" and resolve now I…

  10. It would be great to have to possibility to "order by" on the elements only visible when you click "load more"

    When there are many elements on a K2 Worklist only the visible elements can be ordered by.

    The elements visible when we click on "Load More" aren't sorted.

  11. when creating advanced condition set default logic to OR, not AND

    If the join condition is and you generally do not need advanced condition because multiple if statements that test properties are grouped together as "AND".

  12. Windows 10 Camera Integration

    When using the image attachment control on an iOS or Android device it provides the ability to select camera. Windows 10 devices is goes to a file picker instead.

    This relies on our users opening the camera app on Windows 10, taking all the photos first and then switching back to the K2 form.

    This can be problematic and users can accidentally attach the wrong photos.

    Would like to see a control that could handle this natively with Windows 10 or alternatively using the media capture in HTML5.

  13. HTML Literal Control

    We currently use the HTML Literal custom control provided on the K2 community in a lot of our forms.

    I'd like to see K2 provide a similar control out of the box.

  14. List view pagination go to last page

    Why is there no go to last page on pagination control for list view ? Such a simple thing to implement and yet it is not there. You have go to first page and previous and next but not go to last page.

  15. Picker control displays Date format as YYYYMMDD

    Picker control displays Date format as YYYYMMDD and does not convert datetime value as per user's locale settings. This is when using a SQL table as the data source.

    Response from K2 LABS:

    It seems that this is by design at the moment with the K2 Picker Control.

    So this date format conversion would have normally been done through the "Format" option on the control properties window. But you will now see that the Format option there has been grayed out and is no longer available.

    This is because the Format option is not supported in the control and as…

  16. Administrator Override Checkout

    We need the ability to override/cancel the checkout of a form or view as an administrator. Executing a script against the K2 database is NOT the best way to do this. This type of functionality has been available in Sharepoint forever. If someone goes on PTO and leaves their stuff checked out, we're in trouble.

  17. Server Side Filtering and Paging

    It would be great to have the ability to access the picker control page number and user filter to allow server side filtering/paging.

    For example:

    https://url?search=[picker search]&limit=[picker page size]&offset=[picker page number]

    Currently the picker resolves the full data set every time a user searches or pages in the control. This adds additional overhead.

    Having this option would allow the server to return only the results that are needed when it resolves.

  18. View Dependent Items in Designer List

    It would be useful in the Designer to be able to see where an item is being used. For example to see a list of forms that a view is on, or what forms have rules which call a smartobject.

    This is particularly useful when assessing whether an item can be deleted, so you make sure that you won't be breaking something if you delete something that is currently in use somewhere.

  19. Exception Message Action in SmartForms

    Currently in K2 Five, the Form Is In Error event is very useful for detecting exception but there is no way to log/save the exception as there is no action available to obtain the exception message so it would be great if there is such action available
