  2. Make the Email body textbox larger or re-sizable

    The Email body textbox in the workflow designer is way too small when working with html formatted content. Would be nice to see the entire message instead of constantly scrolling up and down, and left and right.

  6. Base64 to Image

    Add an option choice on the Nintex forms image control to have base64 code, wither from insert reference or from direct input box. this would convert the base64 to image. And finally add an option to connected to a column (in this case Enhanced rich text (Rich text with pictures, tables, and hyperlinks) maybe.

  7. Perform a start-up check against the version of the Nintex database

    Nintex 2013 lacks a start-up check against the version of the Nintex database. Nintex designer should not load and workfows should not execute if the database schema – or any other component – SharePoint, Windows, even browser – is not the exact version supported (or later).

  8. SQL Request Control in task form does not populate the existing list column values

    Currently the SQL Request Control is able to capture existing list column value when open in edit mode in List Item form, but in Task form it is not pre-populating the original values from the list column. This is the major drawback when we use multi-level approvals with SQL Request control.

  9. O365: Copy a field of type Person or Group with multiple values to a Person or Group variable

    In order to copy all the values of a field Person or Group, a loop is required with a sequence of several actions in which a Text type variable is built, which causes time to be consumed in the development of the flow and the use of several additional tasks that could cause the maximum size of the workflow to be reached. It would better if this was done in a single action.

  10. AutoSave in Forms/Workflow Designer

    what would be great is to allow for the Nintex Designer to AutoSave forms and workflows every 10/15 minutes, so in case the browser freezes or you accidentally press back, you can go back to the most recently saved design. similar to how MS Word autosaves documents...

  11. Allow Anonymous User Submissions to Trigger Workflow Start

    In an extranet environment, we are allowing anonymous users to submit items to SharePoint lists.

    We wish to have workflows start on these items, but at present workflows set to "start on creation" will not start when anonymous users have submitted.

    To get around this, we must comb with a site workflow and run list level workflows pretty much hourly.

  12. Workflow variable available in update and copy action

    In a designer when we can query master list which stores all list GUIDS and store the GUID collection in variable and use variable in CAML Query List ID= Workflow variable.
    when we use update/Copy action why is that we cannot use variable? It would be helpful to have an option to choose variable in such scenarios

  13. Add comments for workflow variables

    It would be nice to have the ability to add comments to workflow variables that show in the workflow variables dialog.
    It could help to get back into a workflow or if someone else created the workflow to better understand what variables are used and whats their intention.

  15. Geolocation Support

    SharePoint currently supports Geolocation field which is not supported by Nintex.

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint/dev/general-development/create-a-map-view-for-the-geolocation-field-in-SharePoint

    In nintex we have to use a single line of text. With proper geolocation field in SharePoint we can create special Map Views in SharePoint.

  16. Validation for nr of actions in workflow while saving/publishing

    It would be helpful when during saving/publishing a workflow a message will be displayed when workflows includes more than 100 actions. It can be a performance issue when workflows have more than 100 actions.

  18. Correct the error message

    When using the User Profile Query action, it is required to use credentials to connect to the service.
    We have to wait for the workflow to crash to know the right format :domain\username
    We have to use a single backslash, so the error message is false and misleading.

    "Erreur lors du requêtage du profil utilisateur. Informations d'identification Windows fournies non valides. Les informations d'identification doivent respecter le format domaine\nom d'utilisateur."

  19. 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.
