  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.

  3. 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.

  8. 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

  9. Allow Assign to-do task to set value for Content type field with Multiple People or Group

    Currently the Task action unable to set value for the field that has multiple people or groups. It only supports a single user or group.

  10. Have an option to allow a Nintex Workflow to continue if finds an invalid user account for mail notifications

    ref:00D90q6Cb.5002v2qKWxF:ref

    Currently, if a user account is deleted in AD/UPS, and the account is still referenced in a Workflow, then that workflow would.

    This can be frustrating, especially if the user is part of a Sharepoint group, with other valid user accounts.

    It would be beneficial to have the workflow continue processing if there are other valid email accounts, and optionally send a notification to the administrator/workflow initiator that an invalid email account was found.

  11. Purge Workflow Data whilst purging Workflow History List

    ref:00D90q6Cb.5002v2oEQwU:ref

    Currently when purging the History list either via NWAdmin/GUI, the workflow progress table needs to be purge via a separate operation.

    This would mean the second operation would need to configure with the same criteria as the purge history list.

    It would be convenient if purging the history list would also purge the workflow data

  12. 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.

  13. Ability to add new tag family

    Hi,

    now we have 3 tags family; document, lean, and timeframe. My idea is to allow the Promaster to add a new tag family based on business needs like, business requirements, auditing tags, etc.

  14. 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.

  15. DelegateTask web service method - allow customization of generic message

    When delegating a task via the DelegateTask web method, allow the ability to customize the Nintex generic built in message in the Site Settings > Message Templates section. This will give flexibility on if you want to include a username or not in the message as well as customize what you would like to say.

  16. 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'

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
