  1. Provide an overload web service method to delegate task to another assignee by User.ID

    When an enterprise has several AD domains and possibly a few authentication options are supported, the current implementation of delegation web method may fail to resolve the correct user: we have seen homonymous users in different domains and claims/classic accounts cause incorrect task assignments that disrupt business workflows.

    Therefore, please, consider providing an overload web service method to delegate task to another assignee by and integer User.ID to identify the new assignee (UserCollection.GetById(int)).

    Thank you in advance.

  4. Enable third-party actions that print to PDF to recognize page breaks

    In various workflows that I've created at my job I rely on a third-party solution to print a form to PDF. As some forms need to use page breaks, they are not recognized when printing to PDF from third-party solutions.

    I am creating this suggestion in the hopes that third-party tools will be able to recognize page breaks which currently are only recognized by Nintex' own "Print to PDF" button for list items.

  5. Flexi Task Reminder settings

    Would be great if there were better filtering options or configuration options for Reminder email settings in Flexi Tasks. For Example, currently the Flexi Tasks will trigger 2 emails if the date falls within the week, would be great if you could say something like if Status/Variable/etc. = "" then send reminder or If Date falls within a 3 week window then send reminder.

  6. Product Update License Import Notification

    When importing a license file that requires workflow or forms to be updated to at least a specific version, the import error from a new license file should not just say that the license is corrupted, but that they should at least ensure that the product is updated to the latest version.

  8. Equivalent Nintex (workflow and forms) modern webparts for on-prem SharePoint 2019

    We are migrating to SharePoint 2019 on-prem and the modern layout seems to be the future.

    I've attempted to use the Modern interface on some sites, but there are no Nintex modern webparts available to work with Workflows, workflow tasks, or forms, and no way to 'work around' their absence in an on-prem installation (thought there are reportedly ways around it in SPOnline).

    Could Nintex please provide some Modern webparts to enable the same functionality as classic layout, in the Modern interface in on-prem SharePoint.

  9. Unable to produce a competency training report that includes user name and their level of competency under all training unit.

    The current report under competency training unit only shows the unit and total number of users under each level. It does not show level for each user under a particular unit. Since we have the competency level for each user, this is important to track the completion or level they are at with each unit.

  10. Web Part "My workflows tasks" - Include AD-group tasks

    With this Web Part I can see all my personal tasks across all sites on the farm. Which is a great progress to the sharepoint standard solution that only shows the tasks oof the current site.

    But it only shows personal tasks, not as the standard solution that also can show tasks i have because i am group of a AD-Group that was assigned to a task.

    Would be great if the Nintex "My workflows task" could be configured in a way that also shows these Group-Tasks across all sites on the farm.

  11. Add Credentials for the "From field" in Send Notification action using Sharepoint 2019 and Exchange online/365

    Add Credentials for the "From field" in Send Notification action using Sharepoint 2019 and Exchange online/365

    If the From address in a send notification action is different to the From address listed in CA, Exchange online/365 will not allow the email to be sent.

    To address this, please add an option to allow credentials to be provided when using From field in the Send Notification action

  12. Provide access to your roadmap in a place that people can get to!!!!

    Having to sign in to the community portal and then having to sign in to box.com just to get the roadmap is ridiculous!!! My organization blocks box.com so I can't even get the roadmap. I tried getting to it off the network but the "sign up" button does nothing when pressed. Microsoft makes their roadmap publicly available for anonymous users. Why can't Nintex do the same???

  15. Auto-update Nintex Task Web App

    When a task is completed the page with the Web part needs to be refreshed to show this. When a SharePoint workflow task is completed you do not need to update the page for the task to be removed from the web part.
    This causes confusion for the users who have completed the task, but is still showing in the tasks web part.

  16. Delete old versions of Nintex Forms and Workflows

    It would be great to have a section in either central admin, site collection setting, or in site setting to remove old version of forms and workflows.

    Even better to have filter where to not delete old instances/versions that have running workflows.

  18. Extend Training Units completion period beyond 3 months

    Currently you only have the ooptons for 1 week, 2 weeks, 1 month, 2 month and 3 months to complete a training unit. Suggest you increase this to 6, 12 and 18 months as options.

  19. Forms Designer in Workflow Task Form is missing the List Attachments Form Control

    While designing a Task Form in Workflow Action, like Assign Flex Task, the Attachments list column Form Control is not available. A user responding to a task request is unable to view any attachments in the list. Although you could check the checkbox of "Include list item attachments" in the Configure Action of Assign Flex Task, having the list Attachments form control right on the workflow task form will be much convenient.
