  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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".

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. Use server region setting or allow configuration for week start

    We live in a region where the weekend falls on Friday/Saturday, meaning the week start is on Sundays. However, for calendar control and expressions weekstart is always on Monday. We would like K2 to take the week start from the server's region settings, or provide a configuration option.

  15. Hyperlink control support for Microsoft Office URI Schemes

    When using the Microsoft Office URI Schemes as a link to a document in a SharePoint Library (e.g. ms-word:ofv|u|http://server/site/library/file.docx), the browser client opens the document directly from SharePoint using the specified Office program (tested on SharePoint 2016). This avoids the default behavior of downloading documents locally, saving changes locally and then being forced to upload documents back into SharePoint when using regular "http" hyperlinks.

    I'd like to request that the SmartForms Hyperlink control be updated to support Microsoft Office URI Schemes in the URL property. Currently it does not allow input of URLs using Microsoft Office URI Schemes.…

  16. Ability to set a favicon for a form

    We would like to be able to set a favicon for some of our forms to use one of the embedded images in K2. This would allow our users to easily identify the tab they need to switch to in their browser.

  18. SmartRules: Reusable Public Rules (to be used in every Form, View and Workflow)

    Considering, SmartRules would have the following type of variables:

    • Input parameters
    • Data fields/Variables (to be used as temp data storage for example to transform, transfer and calculate data, etc.) So, data which is only available during rule execution.
    • Output parameters

    With SmartRules you would have the ability to:

    • Create your own library of reusable business rules and use them in other views, forms or workflows to avoid creating the same rules for every Form and Workflow
    • Run client side or server side
    • Make them available as an expression
    • Combining output of multiple SmartObjects
    • Available in the Category Browser

    SmartRules should…

  19. Add dropdown list, picker, and other controls on form designer

    When we create a forms, a lot of time we also need the input using dropdown list, picker, multiselect, listbox etc that exist in OOTB view designer but not in OOTB form designer. Those control usually used to control what we want to see on the view inside the form and generate parameter value for the view inside that form.

  20. Banner Message at the top of all forms (for maintenance, global messages, etc)

    If we could get the ability to do global messages on all forms we could inform users of future downtime with K2 components. Some products (such as Jira, and sharepoint,etc) have a way to display a banner message on all pages, such as future scheduled downtime, or any other communication that may be shared with the user. Usually it's just a very thin and small one line banner at the very top of the pages, and I think that would suffice.
