  1. Scheduled Workflow to run on a Specific Date each month

    ref:00D90q6Cb.5002v2qIVOT:ref

    Currently, the Workflow scheduler would only allow a workflow to be run every X number days, however this would be inaccurate if an end user wanted it to run on the 15th of each month.

    Furthermore, please consider adding an option to run on specific days/intervals, i.e 2nd Saturday of the Month.

  2. Provide an overload web service method to delegate task to another assignee by User.ID

    When an enterprise has several AD domains and possibly a few authentication options are supported, the current implementation of delegation web method may fail to resolve the correct user: we have seen homonymous users in different domains and claims/classic accounts cause incorrect task assignments that disrupt business workflows.

    Therefore, please, consider providing an overload web service method to delegate task to another assignee by and integer User.ID to identify the new assignee (UserCollection.GetById(int)).

    Thank you in advance.

  6. Microsoft Search (intranet/bing) return Nintex promapp results

    Provide a way to return Promapp results to 365 Microsoft Search so that Modern SharePoint search results can include Promapp processes, either in line or as a vertical result set.

    So that organisations who are moving from classic SharePoint to Modern SharePoint have an upgrade pathway without loss of functionality.

    Ideally provide:
    - a Microsoft Search connector, visible within Microsoft Search admin connector screen.
    and or
    - a way to allow Basic web authentication for Microsoft search only, as well as SSO for normal users

    Further detail

  7. retrigger action with error

    When ever an error occurs in workflow the only option as of now is to terminated the workflow and restart new workflow.
    Why don't we have an option to retrigger the action, after correction, which has error.

  8. Sending Reminders also after Escalation in Tasks

    Currently escalation happens only after all the reminders have been sent. And it's not possible to send reminders after the escalation.

    We can delegate the task to another person via escalation, and we have cases that we want to send reminders also to the newly delegated person after the escalation.

    Therefore requesting an ability to send reminders also after escalation.

  9. Minimode links expire when new updates are made to a process

    Establish an expiration criteria for a minimode link after updates to a process are complete.
    E.G.
    Example A - Version 1.0 (Currently Published)
    https://us.promapp.com/COMPANYNAME/Process/Minimode/Permalink/BssfwtwLDewp9p1YTR9g

    Example B - Version 1.1 (Not Published).
    https://us.promapp.com/COMPANYNAME/Process/Minimode/Permalink/EJLjeNWpRqa5tczfUg3q

    Example A would remain in tact until Version 1.1 was 'Published'. Once published Example A would then default to 'This version is no longer active, for the most current minimode link reach out to the process owner'

  10. Automatic Notifications based on value in form field

    Send an automatic email notification to a select group of users if the value of a field has a specific value. For example, log our H&S incidents in Promapp. If the priority is High, then send email notification to key people.

  11. Provide a Bold/Color Identifier for the owner of an Activity on the Map

    Highlight/Color/Bold the 'Owner' of an Activity on the Map.

    Many times, various departments are involved in an activity, which needs to be shown on the Map, but an easier way to identify the "Owner" would be to have the ability to highlight/color/bold it separately from the others. Please see attached example.

  12. Process Evolution Video

    It would be great to showcase a Process Evolution Video. When looking at the Map, you could see the changes that have occurred over time in a short video. The screen data could be compiled from the version history, and placed inside a video. Take it a step farther and allow the user to pause the video, add arrows/cost information and/or comments and this would be a great way to show leadership what has changed and show the financial impacts to such changes over the course of time.

  13. Create areas within each activity/task for Process Manager Comments

    A Process Manager Hidden Field/Notes section should be available within each Activity.
    There is often sensitive information and/or comments that a Process Manager will need to relay to leadership candidly, and this information should not be viewable by anyone other than the process manager role and/or admin. It should default as 'hidden' otherwise the Process Manager might accidentally share their screen and other may be affected by the comments.

  14. Output the list of Workflow Publishers to spreadsheet(xlsx), csv, etc.

  15. Capability of Text to Speech

    This capability would enhance the forms for end users who find reading difficult by allowing the form content/fields/data to be read out aloud. Would also be useful for organisations wanting to implement more access and inclusion initiatives to their organisation.

  16. Ability to update 'External Data' type field while creating a new item through workflow.

    Currently, there is no way to create a list item and provide value for a column which is of the type 'External Data'. It is available in Nintex Forms but not in workflow. It will be great if it can be added.

  17. Enable third-party actions that print to PDF to recognize page breaks

    In various workflows that I've created at my job I rely on a third-party solution to print a form to PDF. As some forms need to use page breaks, they are not recognized when printing to PDF from third-party solutions.

    I am creating this suggestion in the hopes that third-party tools will be able to recognize page breaks which currently are only recognized by Nintex' own "Print to PDF" button for list items.

  18. Equivalent Nintex (workflow and forms) modern webparts for on-prem SharePoint 2019

    We are migrating to SharePoint 2019 on-prem and the modern layout seems to be the future.

    I've attempted to use the Modern interface on some sites, but there are no Nintex modern webparts available to work with Workflows, workflow tasks, or forms, and no way to 'work around' their absence in an on-prem installation (thought there are reportedly ways around it in SPOnline).

    Could Nintex please provide some Modern webparts to enable the same functionality as classic layout, in the Modern interface in on-prem SharePoint.

  19. Flexi Task Reminder settings

    Would be great if there were better filtering options or configuration options for Reminder email settings in Flexi Tasks. For Example, currently the Flexi Tasks will trigger 2 emails if the date falls within the week, would be great if you could say something like if Status/Variable/etc. = "" then send reminder or If Date falls within a 3 week window then send reminder.

  20. Product Update License Import Notification

    When importing a license file that requires workflow or forms to be updated to at least a specific version, the import error from a new license file should not just say that the license is corrupted, but that they should at least ensure that the product is updated to the latest version.
