  1. 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,…

  2. Custom Text Color in Designer

    It would be great if there was a way to modify the text color inside the designer independent of the site text color. This way when changing the master page, or default site look, we can make sure that text inside Nintex is always visible.

  3. 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.

  4. 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".

  5. Maintaining version numbers across environments for a workflow definition

    We never build workflows directly in the production environment, but rather in a test environment first and after testing then export our workflows to the production environment. Since versioning for the workflow definition is based on the number of times the workflow is published in a environment it is difficult to know if my test environment workflow or the production one is the latest version. It would be advantageous if a versioning number is tracked inside the workflow definition itself.

  6. Ability to change repeating section icons and where the icons are placed

    I'd like the ability to change the icons for repeating sections. They don't jive with the aesthetic of custom designed forms. Additionally, I'd like to have the ability to change where the add/remove row icons are placed in a repeating section, or at least the ability to assign these icons a CSS class.

  7. Develop and publish a converter for legacy SharePoint Designer (WF3.5) workflows

    Some advanced users have authored large and complex workflows that require further support and development. It would be of great help to have a utility to convert such workflows to Nintex Workflow.

  8. Option to cycle (disable then re-enable) Nintex workflow across a farm

    Several times over the last couple of years, after an update to the Sharepoint platform (2010) we've been left with Nintex WF running incredibly slowly on all the sites where it's in use.

    The recommendation from Nintex support, which often seems to work, is to disable and then re-enable the Nintex Workflow features at the site level. This is simple enough but a pain to do across a lot of sites.

    It woudl be very useful to have an option, or worst case even a powershell script for farm admins, that would look across all sites, store the current Nintex…

  9. 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…

  10. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. Copy Workflow Constants Across Enviornment

    We have around 50 workflow constants defined in a site collection level. However, when we migrate the site collection from dev environment to test environment, the workflow constants are not getting copied to the test environment.This creates an extra task to create the constants again in the test environment.

    Is there a way to copy the constants from one environment to another environment?

    Please note we are using stsadm backup restore command for migration.

  15. Process 'Change State' action immediately instead of waiting until the end of the branch

    It would be logical if the 'Change State' action gets processed immediately instead of having to place it at the bottom/end of a branch where it gets processed.

  17. Disable [BACKSPACE] key

    Would be good if the designers (forms and wf) both disabled the backspace key when a textbox is not in focus. If you accidentally hit that key, the browser picks it up as a history.go(-1) and you lose all your changes.

  18. Promote Save Button to the Top Nav Bar

    Promote the save button to the same top level as the undo and redo buttons and tab headers so it can easily be accessed from any screen.

  19. Update an UDA throw error if List Name ist not internal tech. Name

    Hallo,
    I maybe it will be great to change the set of internal UDA parameter:listName value allways to internal List Name. Because if you change the Display Name of a List, you cannot update the UDA in the List WF.

  20. 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).
