Central Place to terminate Suspended workflows either at list or site level
Can we get a central place within nintex online to terminate or retry suspended workflows?
Use case: we have a list, managed by users, that syncs specific info from one list to another. The source list had a choice column change and thus has started suspending wf's because users did not make sure destination choice column contained the same values. Now we have 200+ suspended workflows in the source list. Due to the nature of a suspended wf, we cannot just kick off a new on those items, even after the issue with the choice values are fixed between the lists, because nintex will auto terminate a new workflow running when an existing instance is suspended. Requiring us to either manually terminate all 200+ wf's, write some powershell to terminate, create a workflow to terminate or manually delete all the items that have a suspended wf and add them back using excel import. All of those options are too much for end users to handle.
If we could have a central place where users can view wf statuses of list or site workflows and can action upon suspended workflows by either terminating them on the spot or retrying them in this central view. This would be an extremely useful feature.
This idea is currently supported in Nintex Workflow Cloud. As our next generation workflow orchestration platform, we recommend customers to move to NWC. We are also about to start work on being able to re-submit a previously failed or completed workflow. Learn more about NWC and the migration tool here.
This would be very useful, i would like to see the status of all running workflows in a site collection at a centralized place. Rather than spending LOTS of time going to each item to check their status.

In SP 2013 Nintex can run another workflow instance even if we have suspended workflow on same item. It would be great if Nintex can enhance the feature
