  1. The 'Workflow Tasks' list is being called 'Create new...'

    I had been wondering why our site collection had all these lists called 'Create new...' that no one had added or knew why they were there. Then just now, I was on a workflow status page and saw "This workflow created the following tasks. You can also view them in Create new.... " and remembered that line used to refer to the Workflow Tasks list prior to the last update. So I think when Nintex is creating the list it is giving it the wrong name. Not sure if this is the right path for communicating this but nothing more…

  3. Improve XSN Builder

    1. Nintex Xsn Builder Nintex Xsn Builder doesn't allow task InfoPath forms to be customized within the realm of what InfoPath is capable of. E.g. Nintex expects the order of the fields in the InfoPath form to match that of the underlying task content type which is completely impractical . It also expects the fields to be within its own cell in a table. On publishing the workflow, the XSN builder overwrites the InfoPath form and enforces these rules thereby deleting the rules built on the fields and changing the order.

    This can be updated to ensure that the XsnBuilder creates…

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

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

  7. Update yellow pearl icon from 16bit to 32bit

    This is very minor, but please update the yellow pearl graphic in Nintex Workflow to be 32 bit colors. It looks like something from 1995.

    This is the yellow graphic you see when hovering or dragging actions over empty spots in the Designer.

    Thanks!

  8. Control Nintex features activation

    I'm hoping we are not the only organization that wants to control who can create Nintex workflows while allowing site collection administrators and site owners the ability to manage other aspects of their sites.

    We are aware we can manage permissions at the site collection level via the "Allow Workflow Designers" however that requires us to touch every site to alter this.

    It would be nice to give organizations an option on controlling permissions either at the farm level or the site collection level. This will allow organizations that don't want users haphazardly creating workflows and then looking for the…

  9. A way to confirm the servers enlisted in the license file

    Hello team,

    Our customer complains about the file format of Nintex license file, because it's impossible to verify which machines are registered in the license file unless the file is actually loaded to the server to which its license is assigned. They need a feature or a tool to dump a list of servers enlisted in the license file. The feature would enable the user to check whether the license is sufficient or insufficient for customer's farm even before the farm is deployed.

  10. Mark flexi task path as approval or denial

    It would be nice to mark a flexi task path as "approval path" or "reject path". Normal approval action will be shown as red or green depending on denial or approval. Flexi action is always green as it doesn't know which is an approval or denial.
    For better showing denials it would be nice to have that functionality.

  14. "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.

  15. 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."

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. :focus and :hover states on responsive forms

    I noticed that when tabbing through a form with a keyboard or using assistive technologies on the SharePoint Online Responsive forms, there is a lack of focus  and hover states in the CSS on most of the form fields.

    Per WCAG 2.0 AA 2.4.7 - Any keyboard operable user interface has a mode of operation where the keyboard focus indicator is visible.

    A keyboard user tabbing through one of the forms has no clue what form field their on.

    I can make the changes via CSS offline but there's no where to make these changes on the form itself.

    How/when can…

  20. Improve the RTE

    It is difficult to maintain a formulae in the RTE, particularly if it needs to be updated.
    Instead the cursor jumps to the front of the text, or a large portion of the formulae gets deleted when trying to delete a reference.
