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 @calmaguer,

 

This is a known issue we are aware of. Would you mind sending an email to support at support@nintex.com so we can get your details? This will increase the priority.

Re: New Resposonsive (Office365) - Current limitations

Jump to solution

Hi Euan,

 

I am having issue with the New Responsive form regarding the missing calculated value controls, the suggested method of using Label control with Variable does not seem to work for me. The scenario as follows:

 

I have a SharePoint list lookup control (source = Supplier List) and I wanted to display the lookup value of Contact Person from the list on the form dynamically when I change the selection. I try to create a variable to perform a lookup function and set a label to show the variable but nothing is showing.

 

Please let me know how I could overcome this.

 

Thanks,

Gan

Hi @ganww,

Hope this is helpful.
