Nintex Mobile App

Hi Nintex Community,

 

Are there any obvious limitations I should be aware of when using the Nintex Mobile App compared to the full site? We are looking to deply an expences solution using Nintex Workflow Cloud with Office365 and would like to also create the Mobile App.

 

Thanks

 

Tita

Re: Nintex Mobile App

Yes there are many limitations.
You cannot design a huge full site form that runs on a 3 GHZ processor with 16 GIG of RAM and a 2GHZ RAM video card and expect it to perform the same as a mobile device runinng an ARM processor and 512MB RAM.

Some controls are not compatible for example the Managed MetaData control, Page Viewer control and Button control.

Some Runtime functions such as lookup() and UserProfileLookup() do not work.

Any images will need to be web facing with no authentication required.

Tabbed Forms do not work.

We have many companies using the app out in the field and it meets their needs but I suggest testing your scenarios to see if they can be acheived on the Mobile app.

There are some advantages to Nintex Mobile App that the full site does not have like Offline form submission and deeplinking capabilities.

Re: Nintex Mobile App

"Some controls are not compatible" --- Which ones?

"Some runtime functions" --- Which ones?

Where is the documentation on this site that shows the full list of things that work and don't work so we can plan our designs accordingly? This forum is so lacking in documentation with respect to Nintex Mobile.

Hi,

The Help files for Nintex forms advise which controls are not compatible with Nintex Mobile.
https://help.nintex.com/en-US/nintex2019/current/#sp2019/Forms/Controls/Controls.htm%3FTocPath%3DWor...
Click on a control and if its not compatible you will see the message : This feature is not supported in Nintex Mobile.
