  1. Use OAuth 2.0 for all connections

    Because we use Federation with an external authentication provider, our users do not know the AAD password of their associated account. Consequently, the Basic (username and password) authentication method will not work for us. Can we convert all Basic auth connection types to use OAuth 2.0 instead?

  2. Defense mechanism for large workflows

    Before publishing large workflows it will be useful if the designer could alert users of:
    - how many actions are being used
    - recommendation of any best practise to adopt

  3. Workflow start trigger summary

    It would be good if the triggers to start a workflow were available in the workflow list, so you can check which ones are enabled or only manual start without having to go into the workflow itself

  4. conditional start on Blank Dates

    It would be really nice if we could look at the date column within a SharePoint and check if the date is blank or not and start a workflow based on that. It is really challenging when we only get greater than/less than and equals for date fields.

    If Date is NOT NULL(or blank) then Run the workflow....for example.

  6. Workflow Version History

    We would like the ability to see the version history for a workflow in the designer so that we can restore a previous version if needed.

  7. Change basic auth encoding

    Encoding for basic auth when provided with user and pass doesnt work in the Web Request action.

    Also, change the storage options for the response of Web Request to something other than choice/http/text. Text doesnt allow enough room to capture entire tokens for auth.

  9. Better Error Notifications When Publishing

    Errors when publishing a workflow can be difficult to troubleshoot since the error messages are generic.

    For example
    "Error publishing workflow. Specified data type does not match the current data type of the property"

    It would be helpful to know what property it is talking about, the data type it is expecting, what is trying to send it the incorrect value and what value it is trying to send.

  10. Document Generation - Ability to conditionally hide sections of a document

    In the Nintex Document tagger, please give us the ability to show or hide (i.e include or not include) portions of a document based on the value of a Yes/No variable. This could be done by having a tag that has the name of a variable followed by a suffix to allow us to mark where to start and end a portion to conditionally include.

    For example, for a Yes/No workflow variable named "Show Terms and Conditions", you could have the following tag:

    <<VariableShowu0020Termsu0020andu0020ConditionsIncludeStart>>

    Hello world. This is a portion of a…

  12. Allow Variables to have a Default Value

    The ability to set a "Default Value" for most variable types is not available. It's available in the on prem version.

  13. Highlight last action selected in designer.

    Often times I have to go over several actions of the same type in mi workflow changing their config. It would be useful to have the last selected action be highlighted in some way so as to keep track of my progress. Now I do this by centering the action in the window but this is not ideal.

  15. Export file

    Each time export file, the file content no change, But the file content is not same, when using md5 check it.
    If possible export JSON for readable format is very Good.

  16. Direct / more "intuitive" way to configure typical reminder settings for tasks

    I repeatedly see the requirement that a Task is assigned to a user and there should be an E-Mail reminder to the assignee every x days - starting y days after the Task has been assigned.

    Today (please correct me if I overlook something obvious here…) the in my eyes rather bothersome way of configuring this would be
    - create a separate Workflow variable V
    - Use a separate "Calculate Date" Action to add y days to today's date and store this value in V
    - in the Configuration Settings for the Task Action, use V as the "Due Date" …

  17. Nintex Governance: Connection Manager & Workflow publishers

    Best practice around Connection manager would be: Create tenant level connections with appropriate set of users who will design workflows. To ensure local site admins don't create unnecessary connections we need a central setting to disable site level shared connections and personal connections.

    Workflow publishers: We need to add/remove each user to the list of allowed workflow publishers. There is no way to use AD groups. It'll be great if Nintex can enable AD groups in workflow publisher settings.

  18. attachments

    Allow for a Collection Variable of file URLs to be attached like on-prem. We rarely know how many attachments we need to attach and attaching a number of string variable limits this number.

  19. User interface appears in several languages

    While most options appear in English language, occasionally some stuff are displayed in Spanish. WTF? Please unify the localization, instead of mixing it up, because later on is hard to use the search box (should I search in English or in Spanish?)

  20. Copy Workflow

    If I save a workflow under a different name - to create a copy - the original workflow seems to disappear. It would be better if the original workflow remained with the old name.
