Current limitations will change over time. So keep looking here for a list of what cannot be done until this goes GA.

Is this list being updated?   I only see a couple items addressed.    Is there somewhere to see an ETA on any of these items?

Hey @EuanGamble ,

 

We are looking for the multipage ability listed above (conditionally hide pages), the fill-in ability for choice controls, buttons, hyperlinks, and calculated value controls as our top priority since we are using these controls in our current modern forms. 

 

Thanks!

@EuanGamble

  I have a list with lots of items that have attachments that are now completely inaccessible that I've published a New Responsive Nintex form.  Is there a workaround to get to these files?

Hi @Bobbie-Lee,

 

Connecting a variable to a SharePoint column is in the backlog but not scheduled at this time. It would be good to have a call and understand your requirements more.

 

Would you mind sending me an email at euan.gamble@nintex.com so we can discuss further?

 

Cheers,

Euan
