  1. 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.

  2. Overwriting an existing UDA in designer and Manage User Defined Actions section

    Since we can overwrite an existing workflow by importing and then saving over an existing workflow, I propose the same functionality can be applied to designing a UDA.

    For UDAs that cannot be promoted to farm level for whatever reason, a UDA would need to be imported into whatever sites are going to be using it. In my situation, we develop a UDA in a site designed for testing, and when our changes are ready to be deployed we'd then have to replicate those changes into the UDAs being deployed in production.

    From my understanding, if we were even going…

  3. Show Code

    Nintex is a great tool for non developer to get idea of what goes into development to help understand the logic and get into development.
    It would be great to see the behind the scenes code for the whole workflow. And you should be able to select languages from drop down.

  4. Make the Email body textbox larger or re-sizable

    The Email body textbox in the workflow designer is way too small when working with html formatted content. Would be nice to see the entire message instead of constantly scrolling up and down, and left and right.

  5. 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.

  7. state machine/action set lane background colors

    General idea: Allow for background colors to be applied within state machine branches and action sets.

    Problem 1: Working with large state machines that have many branches it can be easy to lose track of which branch you're looking at. Especially when one branch can span your screen width-wise.

    Problem 2: Working inside nested action sets can leave you confused as to which action set you're modifying actions in.

    Solution: Allow the ability to apply background colors(and patterns such as vertical striped, horizontal striped, diagonal striped, etc.) to action sets and branches of state machines. Other areas may benefit from…

  9. Browser bugs

    Browsers still contain bugs in Workflow Designer:
    1) SP2016 - Firefox 66.0.3 (64-bit) - Set variable action, equals Value: add a Item Property of type Single line of text and attempt to type after it. This occurs in multiple actions.
    2) SPOnline - Firefox 66.0.3 (64-bit) - Set variable action, add item property. Unable to delete item property. Same occurs in the Body of a Send an Email action.
    3) SPOnline - Chrome 74.0.3729.108 (64-bit) - Recurring issue where dropdown selections are blank because the selections are displayed to the left of the viewable dropdown window. This happens in various…

  10. :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…

  12. 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. Perform a start-up check against the version of the Nintex database

    Nintex 2013 lacks a start-up check against the version of the Nintex database. Nintex designer should not load and workfows should not execute if the database schema – or any other component – SharePoint, Windows, even browser – is not the exact version supported (or later).

  15. Allow Anonymous User Submissions to Trigger Workflow Start

    In an extranet environment, we are allowing anonymous users to submit items to SharePoint lists.

    We wish to have workflows start on these items, but at present workflows set to "start on creation" will not start when anonymous users have submitted.

    To get around this, we must comb with a site workflow and run list level workflows pretty much hourly.

  16. SQL Request Control in task form does not populate the existing list column values

    Currently the SQL Request Control is able to capture existing list column value when open in edit mode in List Item form, but in Task form it is not pre-populating the original values from the list column. This is the major drawback when we use multi-level approvals with SQL Request control.

  17. AutoSave in Forms/Workflow Designer

    what would be great is to allow for the Nintex Designer to AutoSave forms and workflows every 10/15 minutes, so in case the browser freezes or you accidentally press back, you can go back to the most recently saved design. similar to how MS Word autosaves documents...

  19. Find Variable or Text

    There are some other great suggestions for documentation of variables, but I would also like to see a way in the designer to highlight actions that use a variable. I envision a Search button in the ribbon that opens a search dialog where I could either select a variable from the list of variables in this workflow, or simply type something in a text box. The feature would search the workflow and highlight all the actions that use the variable or contain the text.

    The suggestion for finding and removing unused variables (https://nintex.uservoice.com/forums/229405-1-nintex-workflow-for-sharepoint/suggestions/10843149-find-and-remove-unused-variables) identifies the scenario of trying…

  20. 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".
