  1. 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…

    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!

  2. Ability to search through code to find all refrences of a control or value

    It would be nice if we had the ability to search through the views and forms for all the times we set a value to a specific smart object property or to a specific control. An example could be that I set code to hide a button. Months/years later, the process changes and I no longer need to hide a button. I can not remember if the hide command it on a form or a view or which form or views. I can search for the name of the button and it would pull up all instances of where the…

  3. 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.

    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.

  4. 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.

  5. Ability to "favorite" Smart Objects

    When building a form view, I often find myself using the same smart objects over and over again. It would be nice to be able to "favorite" them and not have to fully expand the whole tree every time I want to use it.

  6. Abilty to Print out Form without having to create/save as PDF

    It would be very helpful to have the ability to add a print button to print out a "printer friendly" format of the form. We often have auditors ask for a printed copy of an electronic approval process and having to create a PDF is a little cumbersome and using the File/ print does not format very well.

  7. UNDO - Button

    An UNDO function in the SmartformsDesigner would be very helpful.

    For example: Sometimes it is not possible, to bring table layouts to their original state without rebuilding the entire layout.

  8. Bulk Show/Hide Views & Controls

    In heftier application builds, it would be nice if we could bulk show & hide various views and/or controls on views. Example, I have 5 ticket types in an application. On my Edit form, I have 7 views that support editing said types (Type A, Type B, etc, and Ticket actions, Comments history). Being able to show two views and the controls that support those views would save on time-consuming rule creations.

  9. View all rules impacting controls

    It would be nice to be able to see indirect rules that impact the current control e.g. a rule in another control which triggers a behaviour in the current control. A lot of time is often spent finding that one rule/expression which is indirectly making changes.

  10. 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

  11. Forms / Views Rule Management

    A couple of ideas here:

    1. It would be very handy if we had the ability to select a group of rules (i.e., where there are nested rules if an advanced condition is met) in order to bulk-move them up / down the "full list" of rules as well as changing where they are nested in the overall rule structure.
    2. Secondly, having the ability to copy rules and reuse within a form or view or perhaps, even across applications, would save a significant amount of time.

  12. 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.

  13. 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"

  14. 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.

  15. 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?

  16. K2 Designer Recycle Bin

    It would be really useful to be able to recover deleted controls, views, rules, forms etc. in a recycle bin. The edit and delete options are too close for comfort some times ;)

  17. Would be nice to be able drag and drop when repositioning rules. Eliminate the up and down arrows

    This would improve productivity immensely if we could select a line and drag it up or down when repositioning it in the rules work area. Especially when working with massive and complex workflows. It can get very confusing and you can even lose site of the line you are moving. Lots of times I find myself canceling and starting over just so I don't mess up all my hard work.

  18. Selecting multiple controls at once

    It would drastically improve the design-time experience if we could select multiple controls on a view and edit their shared styles (for example the font size/color etc). Now each control has to be selected and updated separately.

  19. Smartobject Selection in Rules

    It would be nice for smartobject rules to be more intelligent e.g. execute a method against X smartobject - it would be nice by default if the smartobject location of the current folder was selected to save time clicking into levels.

  20. 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.
