  1. New Control: "Password Box" text-box with the characters masked as asterisks

    An surprising omission from K2 Design Canvas is a masked text-box control for handling password input. There is currently a workaround using a data label with JavaScript code that we are using (Link to K2 Community Post (https://community.k2.com/t5/K2-blackpearl-Articles/Textbox-control-with-a-password-mask/ta-p/76595) ).

    Ideally there would be a control on the canvas called "Password Box" which behaves like a text box control with masking enabled. As shown by the forum post, K2 is perfectly capable of implementing this type of control with "type=password." Please consider adding this as a standard feature!

    Thank you for your feedback. We are exploring a way to include new controls easily into SmartForms, which may address your request. Stay tuned for more information, and we'll update the status of this request as projects continue.

  2. Open Testing URL From Design Canvas

    Perhaps this is minor, but in the day-to-day of K2 Development it would be very helpful to have a link to the Design Time Testing URL from inside the Design Canvas. So I can open a new tab and test my form changes without having to click "Finish" and then open the Testing URL.

    I envision a button at the top of the canvas near Save and Finish called "Test" Which, when clicked, saves the form changes and opens a new tab with the Testing URL.

    Value Proposition: While designing a form, I like to have the Testing URL open…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Copy And Paste Multiple Rows of Data From List View

    It would be extremely helpful to be able to copy and paste multiple rows of data into a list view as a data dump. Similar to how you can copy and paste in Excel.

  6. Ability to copy SmartForm control style settings from one control to another

    If you have many labels which should have the same style you have to manually go into each control's style properties and repetitively set the same style over and over. This is extremely time consuming. If we can just copy the custom styles applied to one control and "paste/apply" to other controls it would save much time and frustration.

    Almost like 'Format Painter' in Office Products.

  7. Fix - Open dropdowns are configured to close when the form itself is scrolled on

    In the form, when a dropdown (DDL) is open and I scroll down, the DDL automatically closes. This is a bad experience when the DDL has about 20 items that a scrollbar exists within the DDL so when the user scrolls down and scrolls far more than the end of the DDL scrollbar, the DDL automatically closes. This occurs when the form is long enough that it has a scroll bar in the page. SharePoint out of box has choice columns and its smart enough to prevent the DDL from closing in its form.

  8. 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.

  9. Save Expressions

    Would be useful to save all expressions created into a common place, so they could be called in a new form/view instead of having to recreate the same expression again.

  10. Custom Error Messages on Form - Worklist Open

    Our users are confused by the attached "error" message when they attempt to open an already completed task through a SmartForm. Typically this occurs when the user uses the link from an email notification.

    It would be nice if we could give the users more information as to WHY they can't open the worklist item. For instance, "it has already been actioned by somebody else" or "another user has the task open", etc.

    Generally, when they see "Error" they believe that something has gone wrong, which isn't necessarily the case. The task just doesn't need their attention anymore, and we'd…

  11. address autocomplete control in K2 Cloud

    There is a custom control available for K2 Five that would be a wonderful standard addition to K2 Cloud: the address autocomplete that is referred to by Deon Smit in this article: https://community.k2.com/t5/K2-blackpearl/Address-AutoComplete/ba-p/66828/

  12. Remove duplicates from dropdown connected to a SharePoint list.

    Let's say I have a SharePoint list of employees, their department, work schedule and manager. I would like the ability to utilize this data in say a Departments dropdown in a SmartForm without seeing duplicate departments. This was done with the click of single checkbox in antiquated InfoPath.

    Watch for the coming feature to add custom CSS into Style Profiles, releasing later this year for both K2 Five and K2 Cloud. You will be able to link external CSS files into your Style Profile to use in SmartForms, which should unlock this capability. Try it out when it releases and let us know your feedback. Thanks!

  14. Add "Cards" list view for better mobile experience

    Multiple columns in list views don't look good on mobile because the columns extend off the screen. It would be great to have "cards" to be able to list multiple records with multiple fields in a single column. This would significantly improve mobile user experience. We should have the ability to configure card "templates" which repeat for each record.

  15. Form Closing Rule

    We need the ability to prompt the user to save their data when the form is closing. This will prevent the user from losing information if they accidentally closed their browser. We could also use this event to auto-save form.

  18. 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.

  20. Pull additional people details into the Picker Control Search

    In our company of 50k+ we have many people with identical names and it can be difficult for end users to differentiate between them. If possible it would be nice to replicate the look of a global address list in Outlook.

    Automatically having the email, location, and job title would be a huge improvement for our end users. As you can see from my screenshot, it would be impossible to pick a Jose Rodriguez and would be sheer luck to end up with the correct one.
