We are just planing out a new Copy Item action which will also look to support an option to include attachments. Beyond this are there any other requirements that you would need from a copy item action?
This has been planned for over 6 months now. Any indication as to when this will be started and/or implemented?
In addition, having the ability to copy list items' data (almost) in entirety, would greatly assist migration between versions of 365 Forms. Currently, this nearly always needs to be an in-place change. Creating the new version and using workflows to migrate the data over to the new form version would be a great tool. We hope to use Universal Forms, when it comes to 365 - we'd really benefit from having a tool to 1) copy test data; 2) migrate over previous data to the new forms list.
When we used InfoPath, copying the form (with attachments) to another form library (with the same form template) was a great way of archiving non-active forms, keeping the current library from getting clogged up with older non-active entries.
I would love to see this with Nintex 365 in lists.
As stated below, copying contents that are not necessarily promoted out into SharePoint - form only values, and non-default attachments which are not saved out into SharePoint - would be great.
If there were a way to copy the whole form.xml part of the item, along with the attachment, that would be great. Create Item will only give us SharePoint promoted columns
It seems this ability may be planned for Flow...
Basically, we require to be able to copy List Items, with attachments intact; not with attachments in a separate document library. This would allow us to archive list items after completion. The list items and the attachments are not only viewed as transactional data, but as records, that will later be searched and looked at.
The ability to archive also helps us maintain the performance of the working list so that it does not come close to SharePoint thresholds.
Has this come close to being reviewed yet?

This is currently a SharePoint limitation, however we have made sure that our lazy approval feature only allows people who are assigned a task to specify an outcome.
As a workaround a user is able to query the task list to see who was assigned the task and who modified the task. We are looking at how make the task querying process easier. Thanks.
I was not sure at first. But I actually like that it is possible for other people to approve forms - provided whoever approves is correctly recorded. This mirrors many paper or email flow processes where temporary approval authority may be given to a subordinate or other manager when the assigned approver is on leave, has left the company or is unable to complete the task for some other reason.
To ensure the approver is the assigned person, putting a rule on the form's decision control, checking the current user is equal to the assigned person would solve this issue for most cases

We recognise the need for this feature and would like to see it in product. However, this is not a quick fix and requires a fair amount of engineering effort. As we are focused on Universal Forms, we are definitely considering how we can ensure we address this feature in the future release.
I will update this feature when we begin development on Task Forms for Universal Forms.
This is currently a SharePoint constraint. Please see the MS uservoice and vote for this capability here. Thank you.
Following the link, MS says it has done the necessary. Any chance of using this in Nintex 365 WF anytime?

Hi guys, could you let us know s bit more about the scenarios you specifically use bcc and cc for? Thanks.
The BCC would basically be to check emails have gone out. There is no visibility other wise. We can see the tasks have been assigned - but not if emails have arrived.
Thanks for your suggestion Angela. This is something I would like to implement with Universal Forms – i certainly see the value.
It may not make it into the first release of Universal Forms for Office 365, but its definitely something I would like to see in the product.
Thanks for the suggestion. We are planning to fix this in a future release.
Thanks for your suggestion Bruce. We have discussed this feature in the past and have added it to the backlog.

To support this requirement we’ve just release the following features
- Specify a customizable sender display name for both email and task actions, we understand one of the main requests was to be able to supply a custom from email address however due to many of the limitations in the cloud we are currently unable to deliver this request and so hopefully being able to add a From display name will get you one step closer..
- Add a customizable Reply To email address for the email action so you can control the email address when people hit reply.
Hope you enjoy these features and be great to hear any feedback once you try them out.
We have emails coming from external accounts labeled as EXTERNAL - to prevent phishing attacks. The current generic SharePoint email address used for sending emails also gets this treatment - so that some are wary of opening and working on tasks or forms linked from such emails.
I would hope having a FROM address set to the workflow initiator or an item modified by person's address would avoid this, and be a lot more useful than a generic Whozat@sharepoint

Thanks for your suggestion. Since CSS is not available in Responsive Forms, we will certainly consider what configuration options would be available in relation to the buttons.
The new Responsive Forms designer does not have a SharePoint ribbon but rather a new minimal ribbon which gives us a lot of flexibility.
Sjoerd => responsive forms do not allow CSS or JS, I believe. (As this would ***** with the form design). I don't think there is any place to put this in form settings.
We are currently building our new Responsive designer which will incorporate this feedback.
I have just checked the rules engine and a hidden control can still be referenced when hidden and used.
We will update this feature when the new Responsive designer is released.
reply to Euan - Yes, I think Form Variables would negate the need to have "show your working" calculations on the form canvas.
reply to Jason Schober - the problem here is that hidden calculated values stop working => so you cannot use the results any where else in the form. I'd be grateful for an example if you can prove this wrong.
Without the ability to hide calculations on the form, Responsive Forms are pretty well useless for us and we will not be looking at them until this can be done.
We really need something that is a vialble InfoPath replacement. This could have been it.
Yes - I actually thought this was the whole point of being able to have calculations in hidden controls - else, why have 2 switches for Visible and Enable? ...removing the Visible check automatically over-rules the Enable setting....

Palesa, one of our Technical Evangelists posted this comment. I thought this was so valuable that I have repeated it here so it stays in view. A great workaround while we work on a solution with Microsoft.
“Hey guys here’s a little trick which will hopefully help some of you community.nintex.com/docs/DOC-6580”
I have watched the Youtube video, may even be a convert to rapp after this. Check it out, it will save you time.
