  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. New Responsive Form - default publish location should be Dev not Production

    New Responsive Form - default publish location should be Dev not Production. No one is going to publish a form to Prod on their first publish. I don't believe that the 2 publishing options are really explained to new users. I know I didn't understand it because I had to self-teach.

  6. 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?

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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" …

  12. 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?)

  13. 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.

  14. Personal connections in Connection Manager

    From the governance perspective, personal connections should be disabled by default. Currently it must be manually disabled on each site/sub-site.

    Recommended path:
    1. Personal connections must be disabled by default
    2. Need basis site owners may decide to enable it
    3. This would encourage the use of *shared connections*

  15. Approval scenario

    I have a parallel approval scenario whereby I have a number of assignees. If one of the assignees rejects the task the approval process should direct stop and the outcome should be rejected, if all assignees approve the approval process becomes approved.

    PS: In the on-premise version of Nintex this can be done with a flexi task.

  17. "Approve/Reject" in Common Reference

    It would be better if Nintex for Office 365 will also have the "Common Reference" feature like the "Approve" and "Reject" link for fast and easy approval. It's also work on both PC and Mobile version.

  18. Add description box for actions

    Add a description box in workflow actions, so we can describe in detail, what the action does and why. This will help when transitioning workflows from development to support teams.

  19. Workflow Constants (Note: not for credentials - see Connection manager in the Nintex community)

    Create a centralized location where values can be assigned to constants for use across the tenancy or Site Collection by all workflows. Allows the use of consistent values for parameters. The values can be centrally managed so that all parties use consistent values that can be easily updated and immediately applied to wherever they are used. An example could be a discount rate used for financial calculations or a department cost center code.

  20. Workflows - add version history

    On-premise workflows have a version history, you can view old versions of workflows and roll back to them if required. Nintex workflow cloud lacks this capability, meaning each time I save a workflow and prepare to publish it I have to export a copy of it to a 'backup folder'. Tedious in the extreme.
