  1. Publish 100 workflows linked to a UDA (in batches)

    We would like to publish ~100 workflows with all are referencing a central UDA, this is obviously running in a timeout at the moment

  2. Nintex Constant - Who Should See It?

    Currently Nintex Constant can be added at Web App/Site Collection/Site level, but we should also be able to set permission on that constant.

    This will help in putting check to see who can see the constant and not each and everyone who has access to designer could use it.

    Thanks.

  3. Add a property to the Start Workflow Nintex Form so it will open in the same browser tab

    Currently, each time a workflow is started on a list item, a new browser tab is created for the Start Workflow Nintex Form. It would be nice to add a property to the form so the designer can choose to keep the Start Workflow Ninex Form in the same browser tab, then when the workflow has started, the form would close and the user would be returned to the exact place they had started. Currently, a new browser tab is opened each time and if a user needs to start workflows on several list items, each form creates a new…

  4. Enable all variable types for "Show on start form"

    At the moment I can not set the checkbox "Show on start form" for all types of variables.
    It would be nice to support all of them.

    Currently we need the List Item ID on start form which is not supported yet. So we have to find a workaround with a Number, because Integer is not supported either.

  5. Extend Set Field Value function

    Currently Set Field Value function is only available on Single Line Textbox fields. It should be great to have the same functionality in all the others types of fields.

    For instance, if I have 3 people pickers: Validator 1, Validator 2 and Validator 3, to be able to set that if user deletes Validator2, then Validator 3 is also cleaned.

  6. Check the design of a workflow

    Would be great to check the design of a workflow if it meets best practices such as if it is too large (and should be broken into smaller workflows) or the actions used are appropriate, such as using Commit Pending Changes instead of pause.

  7. Add different colors to the lines that indicate a 'Run If' and 'For Each'.

    If you have multiple 'Run If' and/or 'For Each' in one workflow, it would be easier to identify them if they were each a different color.

  8. Site collection reusable workflow

    Allow Site collection reusable workflows with custom content type to start on conditional start

    the concept is that you have site collection reusable workflow which has a conditional start. This is then used to publish a workflow to a custom content type where the workflow will only start when the conditions are met

  9. A global configuration in CA to display workflow template pop-up for new workflows

    In Nintex WF 2016, I've noticed that the checkbox to display the pop-up message to choose to create a new workflow from blank or template is unchecked by default.
    There is a requirement in some organizations to have this option selected by default for all users as they will have a bank of custom workflow templates saved and made available for everybody to use. The option is available per user and they can get to choose to keep it checked or unchecked later. But we need it to be checked by default or have the ability to manage it this…

  10. "Manage Workflows in Nintex Workflow" option removed from ribbon

    On a List page, I edit the page and edit the list web part to change the view from "full toolbar" to "no toolbar" to remove "new item or edit this list" from the top of the list view. After changing this setting, the Nintex menu options are removed from the "Workflow Settings" drop-down in the List tab of the ribbon.

  11. Fix workflow options: require manage list rights

    When you create list workflow in Nintex Workflow for SharePoint 2013, you can turn on the option to "start manually". This function works just like the same option in the out of the box SharePoint workflows and in good 'ol SharePoint Designer workflows. The issue is that there is what appears to be a sub-option called "Require manage list rights". This apparent sub-option limits the ability to start a SharePoint or SPD workflow manually, but when you use this option in Nintex, it doesn't just limit a user's ability to start that workflow manually, but their ability to take action…

  14. Workflow Inventory Add workflow and edit workflow direct links

    I would love to see the link to Create a new workflow, and the direct link to edit the workflow added back to the Workflow Inventory (WorkflowGallery.asp) page.

    The standard Nintex workflow version used to have both features, and they were removed in Enterprise version for some reason? It used to be really nice not only having all options on one page, but to be able to create or edit the workflow just 1-click away. Now you have to click on workflow name, then click on edit for example.

  15. Export Nintex Farm Configuraiton

    Would be great if there was an NWAdmin command that would let you export the existing configuration for Nintex from Central Administration and then import it into a new SharePoint environment.

  16. Recognition of changes made to item properties by other Nintex workflows

    Often times, within a workflow, changes need to be made to item properties. If there were a way for Nintex to recognize changes made by Nintex (system), that could make conditional start options much easier for other workflows on the same list/library. In other words, a wf update to a field won't trigger a change that starts another workflow. Being able to add conditional starts that EXCLUDE changes made by Nintex, versus a human, would be very, very helpful.

  18. Add a MOVE method to the Nintex Web Service

    Being able to MOVE an item or document in SharePoint maintains the version history of that item as opposed to a COPY that creates a new item and doesn't maintain that history. Currently MOVE can only be done using Content and Structure or WEBDAV. Being able to automate this in Workflow would be very useful.

  19. Improve 'Refresh Lists'

    Clicking 'Refresh Lists' always involves removing filter and field criteria specified in the task.

    I would like the criteria to be preserved if it is valid after Refresh Lists is clicked

  20. Give users with Design rights full capabilities for Site Workflows

    For SITE workflows, a user with Design rights to the site has limited capabilities to work with those site workflows. This is because they cannot see the Nintex Workflow 2013 menu from the gear/setting drop-down menu. If I send them a link to the workflow, they can edit it and publish it, but they cannot Manage Workflow Inventory, View Workflow History or Schedule Site Workflows since they can't get to the menu. To see the menu, they require Full Control rights to the site. We lock down sites so that very few people get Full Control rights to a site,…
