Change window title Nintex Forms

Jump to solution

Hi everyone,

We are looking into a way to customize the window title of the browser windows of Nintex Forms.

Is there a way to do this?

For the moment it is very confusing for an enduser when he has multiple windows open:

Via javascript it is not possible since Nintex Forms are loaded via an iFrame.

Unless there are maybe javascript callback funtions outside the iFrame?

Anyone has a solution for this? By the way, this is in Nintex Forms for Office 365.

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,

Davy

Davy,

So I will be funny but kinda serious...why would you even want to do such?  Honestly, I don't think Nintex would like you playing with their product to that degree. 

Okay just kidding.  But really, being in O365 is challenging in itself let alone trying to help users.  The easier solution is to help your users understand how to manage their browser windows.  Keep in mind that the Forms does not have an autosave feature built in (at least not yet), so leaving the form open may not be a good thing.

Also the user could use the short key on the keyboard to switch between browser tabs.  Basically what I'm saying is, the problem isn't one with Nintex not allowing users to customize the window, but rather users understanding how to use their browsers.  Hope thats not too mean to suggest.

I would very much like to know the same. Not for the reason of multiple versions of the same form but what if users are playing with different forms within SharePoint and what about company branding on our own site pages? This restriction does not allow that.

Thanks

That's not a bad idea. I like the reasons given here. I would add that to the UserVoice 4 - Nintex Forms for Office 365: Hot (61 ideas) – Customer Feedback for Nintex as a suggestion. Maybe it can be added in the layout settings for configuration. But at the moment, because it is an Add-in, it displays this way and is difficult to change manually.

I had success using this with Nintex Forms Live.. just paste into the Custom JavaScript area in the form settings.

document.title = 'YOUR TITLE';

I tried this in Forms for O365 and it didn't change the title.
