  1. DocGen and Populating Secure PDFs

    Hi - it would be nice to have a feature that would allow us to populate secured pdfs. We are a financial services company so alot of our PDF forms come from our custodians (TD, Schwab, etc.) in a secured format. In order to populate the form we have to remove the security and form fields and save the file as a plain pdf. Then create a new pdf form and overlay the fields on the plain pdf. These pdfs are constantly updated by the custodians, so this creates a ton of work for our operations department to manage these…

  2. Field update for multiple records in scheduled report

    Hello,

    We are currently sending out a scheduled report with accounts and missing the possibility to use the field update on the package to update a field on all the records in the report.

    It is configurable but not working and Nintex Support already confirmed that this is not inteded to work.

  3. Remove "Include Signature" checkbox from Nintex Email page

    "Include Signature" checkbox is Auto-selected and visible on Nintex Email VF page. Allow the ability to hide/show this button and configure it to default to false.

  5. Output Filename format for Single or Multi Document Output

    If a package produces a single document the output filename will adhere to the 'Output Filename' field format.

    If the package produces multiple documents in the output the default behaviour is to append the document filename to the end of the 'Output Filename' field format.

    Problem arises where you get the output file format convention correct for a single file out but for multiple file it doesnt look right. Alternatively if you structure the output file name format correctly for multiple files it doesnt display the single file as you wish.

    It would be great if you could;

  6. Option on Mass DocGen to Merge All Output

    While Mass DocGen from a report allows us to create a large number of documents at once, printing these efficiently involves a lot of babysitting.

    Say you generate 2,000 documents that need to be printed and mailed. Your documents are output into the DocGen Queue. Because Lightning list views only allow the selection of 200 items, you have to repeat this process ten times:
    1. Scroll DocGen Queue list view down to expose 200 or more records.
    2. Select 200 records.
    3. Click Download 1 PDF button to merge them into a single PDF.
    4. Wait 5-6 minutes for the…

  7. Using DocGen need to refresh report in Salesforce

    Hi Team,

    We need an option to refresh report in Salesforce using DocGen packages.

    Note : After report refresh it should not send any report to email recipients.

  8. DocGen User assignment automation.

    I am working on a salesforce site that will have thousands of users and it would be very helpful if we could assign users the DocGen User permission set automatically, at the time of user creation as opposed to manually adding them individually via the DocGen Admin Tab.

  9. Need integration with new Excel Array functions

    Excel has new array functions such as UNIQUE and FILTER. While these are currently in beta, they are available through the Insider program. Microsoft has not given a date for the release of this new functionality, but why wait. It would be great if Drawloop can incorporate these in sooner rather than later.

  10. Ability to have clickable links in Form Steps for a DocGen Package

    It would be useful to be able to have clickable links in Form Steps on DocGen Packages. If I create a step in the Form Step that contains a link, it should have the option to make that link a hyperlink. Then, once a user runs the DocGen package and is presented with the step, they would have the option to simply click the link instead of copy/pasting it into a new tab on their browser.

    In our case, we have a field on the Contact object called "lookup my Representatives", which is a URL field. The Field is then…

  12. Send generated documents to the Document Queue as Files instead of attachments

    When a document is sent to the queue, it is sent as an attachment instead of a file. Our process is automated through an outbound message so when a generated document goes over the 5MB attachment size limit, the outbound message errors out and no document is produced.

    If the generated document was sent to the queue as a file, we would be able to produce documents up to 2GB in size.

  13. Clone Relationships without having to clone a DocGen Package

    DocGen does not allow an easy way to reuse Relationships within different Packages. It would be nice to be able to clone or copy relationships over to new DocGen packages being created.
    Right now, I have to clone an existing to be able to pull in ALL the relationships previously created; then when you want a different Output it is inefficient to have to modify.

  14. Merge documents from AWS CloudFront

    Provide the ability to pull documents from AWS CloudFront and merge into package. Providing the ability to preview before saving the final document will be a real plus.

  16. Allow Sub-Totals on table replication

    We use DocGen (Drawloop) on Opportunities. The DocGen can create multiple tables great, but there is not way to create a sub-total on each total.
    For instance a Quote with Table 1 for Products and Table 2 for Services. We have the ability to make the tables, but we cannot create sub-totals of each table.

  19. Lightning Button in DocGen Queue to sort multi-file output from a single MassGen run consistently

    When a single DocGen package outputs a letter and its corresponding outer envelope, these need to be sorted consistently so that they can be handled efficiently in mailing. Currently this is only possible using a One Click Javascript button (code attached from Nintex Support), which is unavailable in Lightning.

  20. Ability to Bullet Lists in Components/Component Groups

    We often use Bullets in our formatting and other HTML type improvements for our emails and letter templates. We are somewhat limited when using Component and Component Groups due to these restrictions.

    Line spacing is also not as ideal as preferred.
