How can we improve Nintex Workflow?

Add "URL encode" and "URL decode" Action

We meet situations quite often when need to create customized URL which is saved and used later for redirecting within or outside SP. For this purpose we need to encode input text to valid URL and save it.

Opposite situation is for reading existing URL (decode) and parsing several elements for additional usage.

While URL encode / decode is quite simple for programmer (few lines of code) but very difficult (or impossible) to perform with current tools such as "Build String" for WF designer.

Existing/known workaround:

Multiple embedded "fn-Replace" functions are not a good solution because there can be many of them and WF designer can forget some and the result is not good. Maintenance of such a UDA is also very difficult.

Suggested solution:

Both functions are quite easy to perform in Visual Studio. Included link shows how it should work.

Thank you!
