Re: New Resposonsive (Office365) - Current limitations

Hi @eveN,

 

We are wanting to complete the Hyperlink control, but it is dependant on some other work we are currently doing.


To give some background, SharePoint manages complex data in an unusual way. By that I mean the hyperlink stores the hyperlink title and the hyperlink as a string which, behind the scenes looks like "myhyperlink#;https://myhyperlink.com". So when we want to do formulas and rules, the data is not particularly helpful and requires more work. We are working on better ways to deal with this data and making our product easier to use.

 

I don't have a date, but it is certainly in our plan.

 

Would a hyperlink in a Text - Long (rich text) control help?

Cheers,

Euan

Hi @AnkurAgarawal,


Yes you can filter and use cascading drop downs. I have a video showing this functionality.

 

 

Cheers,

Hi,

Why is there no option to type in a date ? The only way is to use a "non-intuitive way" of selecting year, month and day. Is this something that is considered ? Is there a work around ?

@riveranl Yes, ok I understand what you mean. But how do I the store the value in a date column ? I can only connect it to "single line of text" columns.

Hi @EuanGamble 

Not being able to set the value through rules is acceptable as a limitation. But setting a default value through the list-settings is quite common. Therefore my customers don't really understand, why the column-default-value is not taken into consideration.

Anyway, keep these updates coming. The new responsive designer really is a game-changer!

@nemegeerm1 Could you do it through a set value rule on submit? Don't attach the single line of text field to a column but have a hidden date field. Use a submit rule to set the value of the hidden date field to the value of the single line of text field. Alternatively you could have a workflow take the single line of text field value and write it to the date field.

Love the new designer, but REALLY need the forms to work with the SharePoint Online webpart.  Also need to be able to redirect on submit.  Any ETA on either of these features?  Thank you!

@yhertel, You should be able to redirect on submit by selecting the button and then adding a URL into the pane on the right.ModernRedirect.PNG
