  1. Version Control for K2 Forms and Views

    | K2 doesn't have version control for forms and views, because of this if anything has been deleted accidentally during development there is no way to retrieve back. |

  2. Add Daylight Savings in Timer in Workflows

    Option to add DST in the timer action in workflow.

    As the hours/minutes etc. are static and workflow will not realize if the DST is activated.
    Currently there is no option in timer in workflow to check for DST.
    This will trigger the tasks irrespective of the DST which is causing issue and task getting scheduled an hour earlier.

    A datetime control along with checkbox to check for DST can help in solving this problem.

  3. 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).

  5. 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…

  6. Plain Text Email Events

    This will allow emails to be sent in plain text in K2 Five like it was in K2 4.7.

    This is useful for email to SMS providers that require plain text emails.

  8. Managed Metadata: Term Description Field missing from SmartObject

    In the Managed Metadata smartobject found in the Taxonomy category there is no Description field for the Get Term method. The Get Term Store and Get Term Set methods appear to return a Description field but the Get Term method does not.

  9. Ability to pass multiple user names to "Get Role Peers" method under "TaskAllocationRoleMethods" SMO

    Category "Task Allocation" --> "TaskAllocationRoleMethods" SMO --> "Get Role Peers" method

    At present, only single user FQN can be passed to "Get Role Peers" method to get the list of users. But, if we can pass multiple users FQN (semicolon seperated) then it would be helpful for the scenarios where we need to pass a list of users to the method in order to get the list of rest of the users.

    There is a customer requirement to not allows user to approve the task again if he/she has already approved it. In a scenario, we also need to pass…

  10. Change error message when user attempts to open a worklist item that has already been actioned

    When a user attempts to open a worklist item that has already been actioned - normally this will happen through an email that they have received, the message they get says: 'Error - Worklist item could not be opened. [User] is not allowed to open the worklist item'.

    This is confusing as it implies that there is an error in the system, however there hasn't been an error it is just that the worklist item has already been actioned, so this user can't do anything on it. It would be better if the message said something more along the lines…

  11. Activity System Name should be Editable from K2 Five Designer (Workflow)

    In K2 Legacy Workflow (K2 4.7 and previous versions), by default, the Activity Display Name and the Activity System Name are the same. If you want to rename the Activity System Name different from the Display Name, you can easily do it as this property is editable.

    In K2 Five, Activity Display Name is no longer the same as the Activity System Name. You don't even know what was the assigned Activity System Name unless you have to query it from K2 Database. The System Name is not even displayed somewhere easily accessible when you are building the Workflow from…

  12. 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…

  13. K2 Management - Go to activity for Several Instances

    It would be nice to be able to select several process instances and still redirect them to a "Go to Activity" from K2 Management.

  14. 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.

  15. Show what has changed when saving a view/form

    It would be great to be able to see exactly what you have changed (perhaps some kind of comparison between old/new) before you check a view or form in. If it were copy/pasteable, even better, so that the exact changes made can be recorded somewhere.

    This would help massively with troubleshooting and general auditing of development.

  17. Rename the "delete" action in designer for workflows to "undo changes"

    The delete option in the designer for workflows works more like a "cancel checkout". This is not obvious, and so to undo changes, a designer would end up editing the workflow back to the state it previously was prior to making changes. This results in wasted time and a potential of introducing new bugs.

    Even though I understand the way it works, I still hesitate pressing 'delete' button!

  19. Creating users folder from Active Directory

    Looking for the ability to add a home folder in our shared drive from Active Directory.

    Normally when adding users in Active Directory, after selecting the letter for the drive and typing in a file path, the folder would be created in our file share. K2 has the ability to input these values, but in order to create the folder, you currently have to go into Active Directory and hit Apply. I would like to eliminate this step.

  20. Deployment Activation Feature

    It would be great if K2 allows the deployment but not to activate right away. Similar idea as Salesforce where you can move changes to one environment to another but also allows you to when to activate that change. Also K2 should allow inter connect on environment as automated deployment instead of using Package and Deployment. You can schedule you change ahead of time and validate in advance. Then K2 can save the configuration and feature/setting you have selected on scheduled deployment time and auto deploy the change.
