    It looks like many of the issues I mentioned are fixed! Great work!

    The custom JS for hiding an option in the dropdown is now working. I’m going to test a few others.

    One suggestion is that I like the “do you want to save” when clicking between forms. I suggest adding this same warning to the close button in the top right.

    Another suggestion is I like having the option to default to a different tab than tab 1. I didn’t see a way to do this. Also maybe the option to set the active tab color as well as the default color.

    I do get some errors in the console but I don’t see them affecting anything. “failed to execute ‘matches’ on ‘element’: ‘.od-Dialog:has(iframe)’ is not a valid selector” is the main one.

    I’ll try to test more but so far it seems pretty clean.

    Great work on the updates! Here’s some feedback:

    – If I require a field using a rule and it isn’t present, if you try to save the list item, it won’t allow you. No error – just the save button does nothing. Maybe not a big deal, but something I noticed.

    – LOVE the “continue editing” prompt. Saves me a lot of clicks.

    – LOVE the redirect on the details icon in list view. However, if I click it to view the item, and then click “edit” the rules and custom JS do not load. You might want to look at how the rules are being enforced because if I require a field in View Form (which I know doesn’t work) and it’s not required in Edit Form, it shows as a required field but won’t let me save.

    – Additionally, if I just regular click and item to view it and then click “edit” the rules do load but custom JS does not. This is my “ready” js that doesn’t load so it could be that I need to call it differently.

    – Here’s another weird one. If in in Edit Form config and switching to View Form config it brings over the custom JS. Also say I have “Show Version History button” toggled on. Then I go to Edit form config and then use the switch to View form config, it loses the toggle being on. However, it didn’t really lose it because if I go directly to change the view form config from the DFFS button, the toggle stays on and the custom JS isn’t brought over like it seemed to be.

    That’s all for the moment. I’ll keep testing if I have time.

    in reply to: Custom JS examples #36169

    Hi Alexander,

    I’m just getting to play around with this and I think you might have missed some of your instructions. You mention setting something as read only but then your code is for hiding a choice.

    Anyway, I’m trying the hide option and I can’t get it to work. I wrapped it in a ready function that I know works. I tried adding # to the beginning of the field reference also.

    Here’s what I’m using:
    jQuery(document).ready(function($) {
    dffs_choice_option_hidden[“8506407795472748_DropdownField”] = {“Enter Choice #3”: true };

    I’m on version Thanks.

    in reply to: Form access rules #36160

    I’m confused. If you want to restrict access to a list or form, why not break the permissions and give access to that specific group using the native SharePoint option under list options/permissions and remove the other groups?

    Or if there is some reason to not do that, have you tried using the tab options to give access instead of rules? Not sure how you are trying to set up the rule, but I’d probably go with one of the other options first.

    There are a lot of great updates in this version. It seems a lot more stable overall. Here are a few things:

    When using the current user in an email rule I get the error “Email is not a valid recepient.” What populates is [[currentuser:email]]. I still can’t the email to trigger when entering a full email address (but don’t get an error), but as I told you, it may be specific to my environment.

    How do I identify the fields to call in jQuery? I looked in the dev console and tried different options with no luck. I know you were talking about some examples at some point which will be helpful. I was able to get an alert to pop-up using javascript. Thanks for the jQuery load option!

    In list view, if I click an item there’s an option to click “Comment”. It opens a panel where I can edit anything without dffs loading. I even have “Allow comments on list items?” set to no. There might be options on a site level to remove this, but you might want to consider hiding this option in the ribbon if possible. I can also choose “Edit” in the ribbon if I select an item and the dffs form doesn’t load. Same with version history in the ribbon.

    Along the same lines, the details panel has returned with full edit ability.

    Find a field in rules or formbuilder would be helpful. I use this pretty often in the old version.

    I still think a “Close configuration” or something would be helpful upon saving. Thanks for the warning when flipping forms!

    I tested many of the rules options and they all seem to be functioning properly.

    Thanks for the great work!

    in reply to: Possible bug with group membership rule #36081

    I think I’ve kind of seen this before and solved it by doing the inverse “if NOT in this group” and then hiding the fields. Not sure why it happens like that but it was easier to just invert my thought process and rule.

    in reply to: Access Rules #36074

    There are several ways. One way in rules is to use the trigger “SharePoint group membership”. You then use the group number which is found in the address bar when viewing the group. I would probably use “if not in a group” and then in the hidden tabs section use the tab unique ID.

    Another way is in the tab itself. There’s a section called “Which groups can see this tab?”. There you can specify which groups have access.

    in reply to: Control File Name when using Print #36064

    I just tested it and what he provided changes the file name when using the dffs print active tab functionality. Are you sure you are using it properly?

    in reply to: Status update on next release #36062

    Thanks for the reply.

    I understand the “If Yes” premise. I was just pointing out that it was different and didn’t know if that was expected behavior.

    With email, I just put a direct email address in. I can try a field reference and see what happens.

    I will test the custom JS by adding a reference to jQuery. Again, different and wasn’t sure it was expected. I will be interested in what I can/cannot do with it since I’ve used it for a lot of different types of things. One main thing is date checking/writing so I’ll be interested in if that works or what other way I can handle it.

    Let me know what I might be doing wrong with the vLookup information I provided above. Thanks.

    in reply to: Status update on next release #36055

    More feedback!!

    We need a warning if we close the configuration and don’t hit save. Similarly, if we switch forms from the new dropdown (nice!) it doesn’t prompt me to save.

    If I enter some custom js and click back to rules, it loses whatever I’ve added in custom js.

    Feedback on using rules:
    – It allows me to create multiple rules without names.
    – I often use the option “on field change” for the entire rule and it’s not available.
    – For an individual field we are missing the option “changed from initial value”
    – If I add a rule to show a message under a field, it works but then if change a field to make the rule untrue the message remains. This also happens with requiring a field. The required field stays required even if the rule becomes untrue.
    – I was not able to receive an email. It shows “sending email” but I never got one. I checked my junk mailbox.
    – Set field value seems to be working great!

    Custom JS isn’t working. Judging by the developer console I need to call jQuery which we didn’t have to do previously. Here’s the error:

    Uncaught (in promise) ReferenceError: jQuery is not defined at warning (<anonymous>:2:18)

    I still get authentication errors at odd times. I was working a while and then all of a sudden it came up. I open configuration, don’t change anything and hit save. It goes away. I wasn’t away from the browser long and wasn’t doing anything specific to trigger the error.

    in reply to: Status update on next release #36054

    I’ve tried a few different filters to show the vLookup but I’m not getting anything.

    I’ve tried your example Title eq ‘test’. I’ve also tried dynamic like [[currentuser:displayName]] eq ‘PeoplePickerField’. I probably don’t understand the syntax but I’ve tried some different combinations.

    Regardless if I have the filter set up correctly, shouldn’t I see a “New” button if I’ve toggled on “Add new item enabled”? No luck with that either.

    Thanks for your comments on the feedback.

    in reply to: Status update on next release #36052

    Hey Alexander,

    I’ve just barely started testing the new version so I’m just going to give you a few things from what I’ve seen.

    I’m not having any luck getting vLookup to work. It doesn’t show the “New” button and the table isn’t visible but I do see the “header” which shows on the left side. I put a filter in but it’s just blank – the table isn’t there.

    I can still add Created By and Modified By fields even though they don’t work.

    It might help to see a “Save” button on the vLookup config. Even if it’s already saved, maybe it just closes that section.

    Similarly when you click save, the dialog would be helpful if you could close the dffs configuration screen from there, rather than having to go back to the top right to close it.

    I do like that the details pane is fairly locked down. However, if you click the “edit all” hover that you see, and then you click the back arrow, you can see the activity more detailed and there’s a link that says “you created test”. That link will let me go to a details pane view where I can edit the item without dffs. Sounds confusing (it is) but I can recreate it.

    I also am wondering about the dffs link. I’ve seen it on someone else’s computer and didn’t want to draw attention to it, but how do we control access to edit the form? Is it strictly in the password configuration? This is tricky because it shows that link on all forms even if they are on the old configuration so I worry about a conflict there.

    I’ll keep testing when I have time.

    in reply to: Authentication error when trying to save form config #36051

    I say that and then it goes away. Weird.

    in reply to: Authentication error when trying to save form config #36050

    I’ve upgraded to the latest release and I’m still seeing this error.

    in reply to: The Modern DFFS is finally here! #35979

    That’s great news!

    Regarding the details pane: is there some code you can share to use that with the older dffs? Also one thing that is kind of important is if you are hiding something in dffs, it’d be great for the details pane to also hide it. The ordering and tabs are understandable to not be able to do it. But if I have sensitive information I’m hiding based on a rule, I need to be able to hide it from the details pane. OR can we just disable the details pane completely? Honestly that would solve a lot! Or maybe severely limit the fields and information that shows.

    I know this is an early version, so I wasn’t expecting all the functionality from your years of developing the older version. I was just giving you the feedback you requested for what I see as important features that I saw missing.

    This is really great work. It will take some getting used to and I’m happy to test it when I have time. It’ll be interesting how you plan on pushing out updates.
