  1. Add Lync/People Presence

    We would like to have Lync/People Presence displayed in IE without needing to hover over the person's name (similar to the experience within native SharePoint).

  2. Yes/No column should return a Yes/No result - not a True/False

    When completing a form I'd like users to answer "yes" or "no" to particular questions. This information then get embedded in an email and gets sent out to multiple departments. But instead of the "Yes/No" field showing as "Yes" or "No" it instead shows as "True" for yes and "False" for no. This is not helpful, especially when emailing non-techie people within the company. Thank you.

  4. Customize Request Data Task Form in Reusable Workflow

    Actually, Request Data action doesn't allow to customize the task form (with Nintex Forms or with InfoPath) if that specific action is used in a Reusable Workflow Template (the button in the ribbon to Edit Task Form is simply missing).

    Nintex Support has told me that's by design but I think that all actions that involve tasks may have their task form customized.

  5. Show the SMTP error that the mail was unable to send on View Workflow History page

    We request to add a function that is to show the SMTP error that the mail was unable to send on View Workflow History page

    We found the error was not showed if the mail is unable to send from “Send Notification” action causing by what the wrong mail address is registered on the user account.
    However this error is generated on the Nintex Workflow category of ULS log.
    Users are not able to note this issue that they are not able to receive the mail on time.

  6. Build a Visual Studio add-in to design workflows offline in a descent editor

    The only good editors I have ever used have been desktop applications. Visual Studio, InfoPath.
    These offer far more advanced user experiences to author solutions.
    They are inherently built for offline and they are more stable and offer great keyboard support to build robust solutions.
    The Nintex web based designer is terrible to work with and no developer should have to deal with the design experience you offer in 2016.

  7. Send workflow errors to Workflow designer

    Currently workflow error email messages are sent to either the initiator or admins that are defined in Central Admin.

    The problem is that initiators are non technical users and typically get confused by the email.

    And as an admin, I get bombarded with hundreds of messages workflow error messages every day. (We are a large Nintex shop.)

    It would be better if the email went to the group that designed / owns the workflow.

    Please add an option to send error messages to the person that designed / last modified the workflow.
    Or even better, send the error message to…

  8. Allow Flexi Tasks to send tasks to 5000 users.

    I need to assign more than 53 tasks at a time(53 was the max number of tasks that nintex would send out).

  9. Add ability to make changes to a workflow form without having to republish the workflow

    I would like to be able to change a workflow form and see the changes on a running instance, rather than having to republish the workflow and start a new workflow

  10. Please list the default values on the workflow variable dialog that lists all of the workflow variables.

    Please list the default values on the workflow variable dialog that lists all of the workflow variables. Another nice feature would be able to assign a group and or comment. Variables could be sorted by group and or comment. A group might be Constants for example. Or Field Values. Whatever you wanted.

  12. Open up the memory size

    The workflow is limited to 500-600mb which means fewer actions and all forms must be very simple and have very few rules. The only way around this is to have multiple workflows that start the next at the end of each one. A workflow should be able to encompass a whole procedure in one workflow instance.

    At the very least it should warn you the workflow has exceeded the memory space and not allow you to continue to work.

  13. Track UDA changes made by user

    There isn't any way to track UDA changes if a user deletes it or do other stuff like edit or import, export. It would be good to have some logs of user actions.

  14. delete variable or modify a variable type

    You should be able to remove or modify a variable from the workflow variables menu. You can currently delete a variable, but only after ALL references to the variable have been removed from the workflow, which is tedious.

    I understand that this COULD result in workflow functionality breaking, but I think my below potential solutions would thoroughly address this:

    1. Only delete/modify IF the change does not break the functionality of the workflow. As an example, perhaps it made more sense to store some string data as a "single line of text" instead of "multiple lines of text" for use in…

  15. Ability to use the form ID as a reference

    To deep link into a form, we have to use the MobileId found in the XML when exporting a form. We would like to have the ID in a workflow reference to automate the sending of a notification on the current item in a list. Or have a means to query a list from a site workflow to get the Form's ID to again, automate notifications for users to use mobile and submit a form. Tasks are another case for needing this reference. A todo task could be for a user to create an item. I would like to add…

  17. Create a User contact within Exchange (not a user)

    would like to be able to create a User contact which will contain user information for the contact. Mail contacts are mail-enabled directory service objects that contain information about people or organizations that exist outside your Exchange or Exchange Online organization. We would like to be able to use "Exchange contacts" with Nintex products.

  18. Synchronize / Copy Task Description to e-mail notification

    The need to separately maintain the Task description and the E-Mail notification Body us bothersome to my. The is worsened by the fact that simple copying (Ctrl-C, Ctrl-V) between the two does not seem to work for references (item properties, dynamic URLs, ...) which have been inserted into the Task notification.

    I would hope for an easy way (UI button would suffice) to manually copy the current Task description into the E-Mail notification Body, maintaining all references which are included in the Task notification.

  19. Code Editor field

    For fields that are you to put in code (for example the Execute SQL action), it would be nice to have an editor that supported TAB indentations and used a monospaced font, so it was easier to get an overview of the code.

  20. Reference to current Task List

    A way to set a dynamic reference to the currently used task list could be very usefult..Designing a reusable workflow template, I could have each instance with a different task list and if I have to check tasks I'm not able to use a single query list but currently I have to make some switch logics to query the correct list (if I already know which list will be used)

    With SharePoint Designer I can set a reference to current task List
