Using Nintex Forms 2013 v18.104.22.168.
We are experiencing problems when using the people picker control, specifically when the column is filtered by a SharePoint group.
I have created a test custom list with two columns:
I created basic Nintex form (opened designer and published without any changes).
All users field. Start typing. People picker seems to start searching after 2 characters are entered, and brings back matches no problems.
SharePoint Group Users field. Start typing. People picker seems to start searching after 2 characters are entered, but brings back no matches until I have entered 6 or more characters!
I was wondering if anyone has had similar issues and know of a resolution? It is driving me and Ryan Greenaway insane!
What happens if you try it a standard SharePoint form.
Do you have the same behaviour?
Just for your info, even it will not help you, if works like a charm in O365.
Did you test both fields against the same exact name? I would do that if you haven't to try and get a baseline to make sure one name isn't easier to resolve than another.
I work with Cassy Freemanand am working on this issue with her. I've tested this with a ootb SharePoint form and it returns no results for 4 characters but when we enter our 5th character it returns a result. Exactly the same column, exactly the same SharePoint group, even the same user, but slightly different behaviour.
I've moved on from working with Cassy, so she'll have to update you on this issue. I don't believe anything was resolved though. I can't remember whether it was an issue present on the entire environment or just a specific list/site/sitecollection. In my current environment I get results on typing the third letter in the people picker.
