  1. Open File Attachment in new tab instead of downloading it.

    Or make it a choice. Whether it can be downloaded when user click the attachment, or it can open in the new tab. This would ease user to view the document/file content instead of downloading it.

  2. Make the Forms look more modern

    When compared to every other Enterprise Application we use, K2's SmartForms look like something straight out of the 90s. Please make it look like at least something out of late 2000s!

  3. Include variables when copying and pasting text in K2 Designer

    When you copy and paste a string of text in the Designer, it will convert variables and fields to plain text instead of copying the actual field. It would be really useful if the fields were included in the copying. For example mail-events would benefit a lot from this, but I can imagine that copying and pasting inside rules would also be a lot easier and faster.

  4. A better time picker control...

    The time picker controls in K2 are bad, and as I am rolling out a leave request system I am getting one complaint/criticism/suggestion CONSTANTLY.

    "Is there a different way to change the time?"
    "Can you change the time selector like on my phone?"
    "Why does the time selector suck so bad?"

    24 time formatting without editing config files would be nice (because I know this is possible by editing server configs).

    But ultimately we just need a modern time picker control, something similar to (if not just shamelessly copied from) the images attached.

  5. Rich Text Control Hyperlink to use selected text as default value for Display Text

    Enhance the Rich Text Control's Hyperlink functionality to default the Display Text to selected value in the rich text control when it is launched to be consistent with other applications such as Word and Google Docs

  6. Data import functionality from csv or Excel

    It would be great to have a functionality where the system can allow to read the data from an uploaded excel. Currently we are doing this with workarounds i.e. via SharePoint event receivers etc

  7. Ability to retain Text formatting (bold, underline etc) when pasting text into K2 Text Area Control

    When you have a form with text area control boxes for the purpose of users being able to add text to them by copying and pasting text from a Microsoft Word document, the pasted text lose all their formatting.

    Formatting done in Microsoft Word, such as Bold, Italics, Underline and superscript all are removed, which is a problem when you have users submitting Assignments with many thousands of words in them and are constructed in MS Word, then lose all formatting when pasted into the K2 Text Areas.... The user cannot be expected to re-do all the text changes in…

  8. Create a robust calendar list view (that's better than SharePoint's)

    SharePoint's calendar app/list (Classic view) is pretty good, but leaves a lot to be desired. Calendar overlays are clumsy to work with, and it's difficult to build calendars that can dynamically and intuitively filter by certain criteria (list columns).

    We've found for certain projects that a K2-based calendar would help us, especially if it had certain features:

    • Use Rules to filter events by the values of SharePoint columns. Let the value of a filter dropdown control what events are shown on the calendar.
    • Allow or disable creation of new events based on the values or aggregate values of other events…

  9. Allow to setup the date time format of the worklist control of SmartForm Designer

    It should be useful to have the possibility to setup the worklist control like control "Calendar", but having a "Styles", tab "Format" and choose "Date and Time".
    It will be interesting like this to have the date time of the Workflow displayed according the region of the user.

  10. Copy to Clipboard

    JavaScript has the ability to execute the command "Copy" which copies the selected text to clipboard.
    I attempted to make it happen with a Data Label, but it did not work. This would be a great feature to have available.

  11. Picker Controls with Multiple Values

    When you have a picker control that is set to allow multiple values only the identifier property is populated. The other properties are blank.

    For example if you have a picker bound to UMUser with the identifier set to FQN. When you enter a single user all the properties are available (i.e. name/display name/manager etc). When you add more than 1 user to this picker the name/display name/manager etc) are simply blank.

    The use case here could be that you want to display the managers for the users selected in the picker on the form in a semi-colon delimited list.

  12. Copy conditional styles

    Copy conditional styles from one field to any other instead of having to recreate each time.

  13. incrementing number control

    would be great to have a control which is basically 2 buttons and a text box. the text box starts with a value of 0, when you press the + button, number increments by 1. when you press the - button, it reduces by 1

    having the ability to specify the amount that you would like to increment or decrement would be good also, ie plus/minus 2, or plus/minus 5 etc etc

  14. Evenly distribute columns in designer

    When editing a list view it would be useful to be able to select a column range and evenly distribute the columns. An alternative would be the ability to type in column widths rather than dragging them to the desired width.

  15. 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.

  16. List View Paging 1 of x

    One of the most commonly requested features asked form me is for the list view page to show how many pages. Currently, it just says page 1, and you have to click through to find out how many pages there are.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. Provide a responsiveness theme.

    It is common and necessary to create workflows which can be accessed via multiple platforms. The Lithium theme which is supposed to handle this issue does not work properly.

  20. 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.
