  1. 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.

  2. Add Controls Like Dropdowns and Radio Buttons to a List View

    Having the ability to create questionnaires/surveys (e.g. multiple choice Q&A's) with different controls would be great. Currently I have to add HTML Literal for buttons etc. but your limited to how much functionality you can provide as posting the results back to K2 is really difficult with extensive JS. Having to click to edit each row first is not a good user experience either. Also using the click to edit approach, the controls tend to disappear when back in display mode and show the text value of the control selected.

  3. Excel like navigation in editable lists

    It would be extremely useful to allow keyboard navigation (cursors & Tab) when editing a list. The current implementation of having to click a row to edit can feel cumbersome. A listview 2.0 control would be a much needed addition to smarforms!

  4. Form Progress Steps Overview (already available in K2 Community)

    Form Progress Steps - K2 Community

    This is a visual control that displays a linear flow. It could give users a simple view of where they are in the process, and what other steps to take.

    Example. Domino's pizza tracker

    It can populate from a workflow and display client events into a linear progress bar (think of it as a super simplified View Flow), or it could populate from a SmartObject.

    An item is highlighted in blue to mark is as 'active'. If populating from a workflow, this is detected form the SerialNo parameter to detect the current event; otherwise…

  5. Pageinated Listview retain current page when update method called.

    When we page through data on our forms and then update an list item, the Listview rebinds and goes back to page 1. This is incredibly painful. Would it be possible to have an option to maintain the page in which we are currently on.

    It seems to me that the cause of this is that all the data for the Listview is loaded upfront and then paged from K2 and not the database which means that when an update occurs the in memory representation is not consistent has to be reloaded. At this point K2 has no idea where…

  6. 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.

  8. Improved Table Cell Formatting Options

    At the minute the options for table borders, and background colours are limited and we have to rely on literal Data Labels to obtain the desired look.

    If we could format the cells rather than the style of the data with colours and borders this would go a long way to solving this. Even better would be predefined table styles with headers etc which we could further customise.

  9. Custom text for True/False properties

    Right now in the item view and list view, Yes/No properties of objects display as "True" or "False" It would be really nice to be able to display alternative language instead of true/false; like, yes/no, active/inactive, on/off. I found some suggestions in the forums for workarounds, but they do not work, or, they are impractical.

  10. View placement in Smartforms

    It would be really useful if we could have more / better placement of views inside a Smartform. For example if I have a form where I have one View in a right panel that is really long and the view on the left is really short. I want to be able to put the 3rd view under the left panel without having a big gap between the two left views.

    See attached image, of how I would like it to be

  11. Numeric Keypad option for mobile browsers

    Add an input type property to text box controls (and other controls as appropriate) to use the keypad instead of the QWERTY keyboard layout for mobile browsers. In HTML5 this is the input tag, type attribute (https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_input_type.asp) . A few useful types include text (current), number, email, url, and maybe password. On most mobile environments, each type has a different keyboard layout.

  12. Add offline forms to Windows devices, such as surface

    Offline forms are available for all mobile device platforms with apps, except Windows. Please add this feature, so surface users can benefit from using forms offline.

  14. Add Ability to Upload JavaScript Files and be Referenced within K2

    Many times I wanted to add some funciton that is not necesarly an option within the default K2 expression. For example wanted to reproduce some SHA 256... since we don't have any Crypto Functions... try to load a JS function like:

    http://operationblockchain.org/simple-blockchain.html

    Turns out that I create a Data Label and paste as literal but does not get execute correctly. seems like having a folder or library where scripts can be stored and call those once loaded from specific server path will be very useful to allow integrate JS as needed with the ability of review and read in plain…

  15. (K2 Five) Picker field should act more like a filter box

    This is basically a clone of https://ideas.k2.com/ideas/APIT-I-63, but I wanted to suggest it for K2 Five specifically.

    Make the Picker field more like an Autocomplete field, as the suggestion at https://ideas.k2.com/ideas/APIT-I-63 says. The red "unresolved elements" message is an unnecessary step in the middle of getting to your list of options.

    The best UX approach here would be something like this:

    User starts typing, autocomplete suggestions start appearing in a list beneath the box. Alternatively, a dropdown arrow at the right could allow you to list out all the possible options with a scrollbar to see them all.

  16. 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.

  17. Modify common properties/styles of multiple controls at the same time

    This feature would rely on the implementation of "Selecting multiple controls at once (https://ideas.k2.com/ideas/APIT-I-29) "

    While building a form,

    • The user selects multiple controls
    • The properties panel will show an aggregate of common properties for the controls selected. This allows the user (form builder) to modify common properties shared by the selected controls.
    • The properties panel will show an aggregate of common styles for the controls selected. This allows the user (form builder) to modify common styles shared between the selected controls.

    Obviously, some shared properties that are unique will not be available to modify with multi-select, such…

  19. PDF viewer control

    Since some years it it is possible to save a SmartForm as PDF or store a PDF in the database, but it was not possible to display a PDF in SmartForms again which was previously stored there. It is actually a very comon business requirement to check documents which were uploaded by somebody else and PDF is an industry standard. Example: somebody attaches a PDF invoice and submits the task. Finance receives the task to check the invoice formally and content-wise. Yes, you could store the PDF in SharePoint and use the content control to display it. However I don't…

  20. Add "Insert Hyperlink" button to Rich Text Control toolbar

    Add an "Insert Hyperlink" button to the Rich Text control toolbar.

    Example use case:

    An app has dynamically generated workflow emails that are based on what's inserted in a Rich Text Control, but it's not ideal to send recipients long URLs. When a user inserts a URL into a Rich Text at runtime, they should be able to insert a nice looking link (e.g. Display Text with an underlying URL).
