  1. Ability to place controls/views above/along side the tabs in a form

    Currently you can only have tabs at the top of a form. I have had forms where we would like to keep one view above the tabs as a "general information" area and the tabs toggle through sections below that area.

  2. Incorporate the 'Check Out' and 'Edit' When working on a form or view

    I don't understand the multiple step of first checking out a view and then editing the view. It seems to me that if I choose 'Edit' that it goes without saying that the form or view needs to be checked out. There may be something that I'm not seeing here but why can't these steps be incorporated into 1 step?

  3. Viewing other workflows, forms, views by other authors

    It would be very handy (especially while learning) if you could look at someone's form / views / workflows without checking out the file(s) or workflow. Basically a read-only instance of the forms, views, and workflows that allows you to see how something is configured (with viewing rules, etc.), but without the check-out.

  4. Group controls on form and allow rules to apply to a group

    It would be great to be able to group several controls together and be able to apply a rule to all of the group--for instance, to be able to show or hide a group of controls based on the current workflow task. Right now if there's 10 controls that need to be hidden, that's 20 rules--10 for the control, 10 for the labels for the controls.

  5. Picker Control Resolution UX improvement

    When a picker is resolving and it can't identify a single item it gives the "Unresolved elements found" message. Our end users do not find this intuitive and most think that it is in error.

    The preferred option would be for it to automatically pop up all of the possible options that meet the criteria (see screenshot) and have the user pick there instead of the "unresolved elements found"

  6. Custom 'Error' messages

    We find ourselves creating unique rules in order to provide user-friendly notifications/message to our end users. If possible, we would like either the option to modify the error message ourselves or an easier way to update the experience without "creative work-arounds" in view/form rules.

    Two examples:

    • Picker controls resolving
    • When a worklist item has already been completed by one of the users in the user task

  7. Set Global Form Defaults (Fonts, Sizes, Weights, etc.) Independant of SharePoint Settings

    Often we need forms to use different fonts, sizes and weights other then what the SharePoint site the form sits on uses. When we do, we have to change every control to adhere to the design changes that we want to get the form to look the way we want. If we had the ability to tell the form to stop inheriting these settings from the SharePoint site and to use these settings instead, then it would save a whole bunch of design time effort.

  8. Allow Tabs to be Formatted

    Currently, we cannot format for the form tabs. This would allow for the fonts used on those tab labels to be the same as the ones we use on the form.

  9. Support for appended rich text in K2 forms

    I had a requirement recently to add appended text to one of our support forms so the engineers could see the last comments and add new comments. In SharePoint this is very simple > enable versioning > select to column and change to append text. I tried this in K2 and after a support session it was apparent this isn't supported without a lot of changes which make it very complicated.

  10. Upload and reference a different style sheet

    To piggy back onto the custom class property (https://ideas.k2.com/ideas/APIT-I-187) . It would also be nice to be able to apply a custom style sheet to the application. During the application creation, the user could attach a custom style sheet (or a duplicate of the current one could be added.) All forms and views would use this style sheet and the developer could make changes to the style sheet, add new class rules, upload a replacement in the event they worked on one offline.

    When you went to the style panel for a control, it could show you the…

  11. Allow dynamic Visible/Enabled/Read-Only properties on control

    Currently a lot of time is spent on creating rules to show/hide | enable/disable controls based on certain conditions. Typically this is done in an on-change rule on a control who's value determine the visibility of another control. If a control's visibility depends on many other controls this can get messy.

    By allowing one to specify rules on the Visible/Enabled/Read-Only properties directly will be a much better approach and the added benefit that a rule which controls visibility is not defined on another control.

    See attached s/shot for a possible mocked up solution.

  12. Ability to mark a view as a header view

    We often inject a small bit of javascript to move the first view on the form above the tabs on the form.

    It would be much better if we can mark a view to not be part of a tab, but be above the tab lines.

    We could call it a 'header checkbox' but i think we would also need some way to put multiple views above it, if we would want to (so you could check the checkbox on multiple views).

    It might be practical to have the same for the footer view.

  13. Sort views and rules in the rules editor

    When you add a view to a form the view's rules will be placed in a seemingly random order. It would be nice to be able to sort the views in the form rules editor to keep them in some kind of order. Similarly with rules in a view, it would be nice to be able to group them together and/or order them as well.

  14. Applying conditional styles to a drop down list control (changing font style, size and color)

    It would be extremely nice if one can have the functionality to edit and change the font size and color of fonts of the items in a drop down list control.

    Apparently when you try to change or edit these on the general controls properties on conditional styling these do not take effect.

    Thus making the designing of ones form appearance inappropriate because the size, font style and color of the items in the drop down list cannot match the styling of the form.

  15. Ability to have 'Literal' mode for text on Check Box, Check Box List, Choice, Radio Button, Radio Button List controls

    Many times these controls presents not only options for user selection, but also instructional/message/error texts. As other label controls, these controls (Check Box, Check Box List, Choice (espectially when rendered as Check Box List or Radio Button List), Radio Button, Radio Button List) should be able to have accompanying texts in 'Literal' mode. Should be available to both K2 Five and Cloud.

  16. List View add list of values to the Operator list for filtering

    Add a List option to the operators list of Filter options on a SmartObject List method.

    This could either be a semi-colon separated list or a SmartObject call.

  17. form name and view name

    Please could we add form name and view name to the smartform system values.

    So at form level we can use Form Name.

    At view level we can use View Name, and Form Name

    If the view is run without a form then formname is null or blank

    But if the view is run on a form then the Form Name is the Form System name.

    At a minimum.

    If we also had Form Title, View Title and others as well even better.

    We need this in Springboard to greatly improve performance so a view knows the name of the…

  18. please bake the Name setting into the name attribute on *every* element in the DOM

  19. Clone Forms and select views to clone

    We need to be able to clone a form but select which views to also clone.

    We build form and often use reusable components.

    When we clone a form we would like to be able to select which of the views to clone instead or a blanket clone all views.
