  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. Show field labels in Validation Summary for Required fields.

    Currently the Validation Summary on a Nintex Form will report "This is a required field." for each empty required field. It would be nice if the field's display name or label was included automatically, e.g. "Title is a required field.", rather than specifying it for each individually in the Validation setting "Required error message".

  4. People Picker people only validates after the item has been submitted

    People Picker people only validates after the item has been submitted. In the legacy people picker, the validate is triggered as soon as you have entered in a value.

  6. 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.

  7. Enable workflow to start from the item menu for reusable workflows

    For list workflows the option "Enable workflow to start from the item menu" is available and works really well. I have this same requirement but for a site collection reusable workflow where it is not an option. Please can this be added?

  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. Document Generation to include item attachments

    It would be very useful if Document Generation allowed a user the option to include attachments as appendices to a document they are using.

    For example, an assessment form is filled in with attachments as evidence. When using Document Generation the user can map the assessment data into a template, and then select a tick box that tells the action to include the List item attachments as appendices if they exist.

  10. Find Variable or Text

    There are some other great suggestions for documentation of variables, but I would also like to see a way in the designer to highlight actions that use a variable. I envision a Search button in the ribbon that opens a search dialog where I could either select a variable from the list of variables in this workflow, or simply type something in a text box. The feature would search the workflow and highlight all the actions that use the variable or contain the text.

    The suggestion for finding and removing unused variables (https://nintex.uservoice.com/forums/229405-1-nintex-workflow-for-sharepoint/suggestions/10843149-find-and-remove-unused-variables) identifies the scenario of trying…

  11. "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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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…

  18. 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.
