Now available in Nintex for Office 365, Nintex Mobile, Nintex Workflow Cloud and soon Nintex for SharePoint, our new responsive forms designer is easier to use than ever and includes several powerful new capabilities.
We’ve enhanced and streamlined the no-code, drag-and-drop interface so you can take your forms from conception to creation to deployment faster than ever.
In the age of the “citizen developer,” our goal is to enable everyone to harness technology easily and powerfully to reap the greatest business benefit. We’re committed to making digital forms and automation possible for every business, without the need to write code.
The new responsive forms designer offers a more advanced rule builder that allows you to easily create forms that adapt to user input. You can now provide a better user experience than ever before, with forms that automatically adjust to the device screen on which they’re rendered, and that dynamically change according to the data entered.
This means users don’t have to be confused with irrelevant form fields and information — or waste time completing sections that don’t apply. When it comes to complicated matters like insurance claims, with many variables at play, this can make a big difference.
With the new forms designer, you can use sophisticated formulas in rules, labels, and default values. More than 30 useful formulas are available, as well as other functionality like inline help (provided as soon as the user enters information), inline formula validation, and type-ahead support.
For instance, if a user is making an order, pricing and tax details can be calculated and broken down in a detailed digital invoice.
“Leveraging rules and formulas, it’s never been easier to create forms that dynamically change based on user behavior and inline formula validation.”
– Euan Gamble, Nintex Senior Product Manager
More pages, more signatures
Another important innovation is the ability to create multi-page forms. Longer and more complex forms can now be broken up to make them more manageable and less confusing for the user.
Signature collection is also improved. Simply drag and drop the fields directly into your form. This greatly expedites automated workflows that require signatures, often a source of bottlenecks in any organization.
Put on Text Masks
We’ve included Text Masks to make it easier to capture membership numbers, credit card numbers, phone numbers, and other sets of numbers with a specific length or format. It stops the user from accidentally entering letters and symbols and facilitates accurate data entry on mobile devices.
Being able to control the user input in this way makes it much more likely you’ll collect the correct information from users, for instance during customer onboarding or purchasing. This reduces hassles for you and dissatisfaction on the customer side.
Taking geolocation further
Enhanced geolocation control allows you to perform actions like confirming a customer’s location or verifying that a delivery has been made.
And now our designer even lets you connect to Google Maps — another major user experience enhancement. This popular navigation app is familiar and comfortable for most users, helping them complete your forms quickly, painlessly, and accurately.
Making the most of all your data
Cascading dropdown menus are helpful in digital forms to present users with valid options according to the information they’ve already entered. In the new forms designer, we’ve also improved the List Lookup functionality. It’s now even easier to draw on data from your other SharePoint lists.
We’ve enhanced the filtering functionality in List Lookup, so that duplicate items are eliminated, and the user only sees relevant options. This crucial functionality helps eliminate information overlap, brings everything together, removes duplication, and presents it to users in a way that makes it easy to engage.
