Form Group Fomatting Options - Configure Collapsible State

Currently in NWC for Forms, Group form control can be added with the ability to configure formatting options to make the group collapsible. When the form initially loads, the group form control is always un-collapsed (expanded).

It would be great that when collapsible is configured on a group form control that there was another option available to configure the initial state of the group e.g. whether collapsed or un-collapsed (expanded) when the form initially loads. Thanks!

    This functionality is now available for Nintex Workflow Cloud Forms. Now you would be able to open a form and have a Group control collapsed or expanded by default. This functionality can also be controlled by adding conditions in the configuration panel.

    Just running into this same issue for a collapsed group. I would like the default state to be collapsed so that the user can expand the group if it is required.

    I had to workaround this
    1. added new Sharepoint list items (multi-choice Show/Hide) radio buttons for each group
    2. Have the workflow decided how to set the defaults.(show or hide)
    3. Wrap all controls in the group inside another embedded group with the show/hide options as the only control in the original group (AT THE TOP)
    4. Do NOT use the collaspsible option at all (uncheck it)
    Now All works exactly as I want it to - BUT could have avoided all this work and extra list items if the Group control would just allow the default to be set by a form RULE :(
