  1. flexi task: allow edit setting for escaltion,reminders and behavior per each assignee. today you can only edit the notification itself.

    i've recently encountrd in this situation: i had a flexi task with two assignees, they had to agree on a specific outcome (approve). i couldn't add any more assignees to this task since i needed different behavior than "all must agree on a specific outcome". also, i didn't want the group members to recieve escaltion and reminders.

    Under Review  ·  Alex responded

    Thanks for the feedback, we are reviewing this request for inclusion in a future release

  2. Add lookup functionality when constructing strings

    When constructing strings we have the option "Insert reference". Unfortunately this only allows to insert predefined elements, but no list lookups or similar. So if we need some data from other lists we have to use another variable and a Set Variable action prior to constructing the text.

  3. Do not show workflow start page

    As discussed here https://community.nintex.com/thread/1163?sr=stream&ru=2149
    although it Is already possible to not use a workflow start page the process of selecting custom and leaving the field blank is not very intuitive.

  4. Skip to Different Action Set

    I have been working with different workflow tools. While one of the best feature which I found in another workflow tool is that, an administrator can re-run the error workflow instance at a particular action set.

    For more details consider a workflow as mentioned below:

    Start
    then Step 1
    then Step 2
    then step 3 approval process
    Step 5 if approved in step 3
    Step 6 if rejected in step 3.

    This is a simple workflow. Now user has run the workflow and the approval task is assigned to a approver. Approver performs the task. Onec the approver performs the…

  5. Resizable rules pane

    Would be great to have the option to resize the width of the Rules pane on the right side of the forms designer interface just like the left pane with all of the controls is. This would allow you to see the full name of each rule which is often truncated. Attached is a screenshot of a rule with a name longer than the width of the Rules pane "ELE Commercial Ext Lighting" so it only shows as "ELE Commercial Ext" in the rules list.

  6. Ability to maintain a developer log/history for a Workflow

    Currently there is no way a maintain a developer log/history of a workflow. This new feature would be similar to a flower-box that is used to explain the changes within a program. A possibility is to add
    another option under the Workflow Settings menu option.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  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.

  13. Add Workflow NAME to Browser Tabs

    I find that many times I have several workflows open (maybe I am working on several at one time OR need to refer to an old one while creating a new one). It would extremely helpful if the browser tabs would have the workflow name instead of just the words "Workflow Designer" on the top of each. This would make it much easier to navigate between several open Nintex Workflow tabs.

  14. Working with Workflow Variables

    • Ability to delete multiple variables by selection, currently I need to click on each variable, hit delete, hit OK. I have 200 variables.

    • Ability to automatically sort alphabetically by variable name. Currently in the Workflow Variables settings screen, they're not sorted.

  15. Ability to Copy snippets or Clipboard "copies" from lists/libraries to site workflows

    Sometimes you develop a worklfow for an existing list and a lot of logic goes into the actions and functions, etc. but then if you want to create a site workflow to update already existing documents with the same logic you have to rebuild it. Allow for copying of code snippets between different workflows and different type of workflows.

  16. Published Date Stamp on Form and Workflow Designer

    While you are building a form are workflow there is not an easy way to see when the last form or workflow was published. In the upper right corncer where you see the workflow name, list name, and version number, please add a date stamp so the end user knows when it was last published.

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Actions involving multiple fields - be able to change field order

    For actions that involve adding fields (eg. Update Item, Create Item), I would like to be able to change the order of the fields once they are added. This would help when checking that all the correct fields are added and also help in troubleshooting.
