  1. Date when action is executed

    In Nintex for Office 365 you have the possibility to assign a date variable to "When action is executed". This is not present in Nintex Workflow Cloud, and we are only able to get the date the workflow started, and this workflow could potentially run for 6 months..

    • Regional Data Centres with the ability to create data regions

      Ability to have NWC run in multiple data centres. Starting with one to choose depending on my preferred location, followed by the ability to create different data regions. Handy for multinational organisations that want to ensure data is hosted where their regional subsidiary is located.

      • Pause/wait until

        We have the need for an action in NWC that is present in Office365 and SharePoint. "Wait until" where we can insert a date.

        • Support non-OK status-code in xtensions

          Currently if a xtension responds with a code other than 2xx the call is considered to be a failure.

          However many APIs legitimately return a status-code other than 2xx. For example if you query a service and no results are found, many APIs return 404 - "Not Found". This is a valid response and I would like to react on this response within the workflow. Many times this would result in either creating a new record (if a query returns 404) or updating an existing record (if a query returns 200).

          • Having access to initiator display name and email address

            It would be so great to have access to Initiator display name and Initiator email address in context variables when the workflow is started by an authenticated user. For example, when someone submit an NWC start form from Nintex mobile app, as the user is authenticated, I could then assign him/her a task and/or send him/her an email.

            • Enhance scheduled start

              I would love to see enhancements to scheduled start. Scenarios I would like to see are:

              - Every x Monday of the month
              - Every x workday of the month

              Regards,
              Daniel

              • Connector for Microsoft Teams

                More and more people are now using Microsoft Teams! It would be very helpful if you could make a connector that could do all or some of the following things:
                - Post to a channel (Message and Card)
                - Send a chat message (Message and Card)
                - Create/Modify/Delete a Team
                - Create/Modify/Delete a Channel

                • Webhook

                  To ease the integration of additional systems as triggers for NWC a generic webhook trigger-event would be awesome. This would leverage the possibility to use a industry-standard trigger to start a workflow.

                  • Address finder functionality on Forms

                    It would be great to have address finder functionality on NWC forms, using Google Address Finder (or similar) so that entering text into an address field would bring up autocomplete options.

                    This would give consistency in address formatting, guarantee correct city spelling and postcodes, etc. and allow us use these in form & workflow variables.

                      Thanks for your suggestion Philip. After we built the Geolocation control, we found an address control would be possible using the Google APIs. It is in the backlog but not scheduled at this point.

                      I will update this idea when we move it to the plan.

                    • Why no Auto Save??

                      I lost a more than a day of work, hours!
                      and no automatic save feature....

                      This alone will cause me not to go with Nintex as a solution. I can't afford this.
                      I've testes over 8 solutions this month, and all offer auto save.
                      The mighty Nintex does not....

                      • Improve error handling

                        Received the below error:

                        Incompatible character encoding: ASCII-8BIT and UTF-8

                        The issue ended up being caused by a salesforce process trigger failing within the workflow. The error was not relevant to the underling issue, making it hard to troubleshoot the issue.

                        • Please improve Help and support requests

                          I can't connect to my Azure AD. Neither can I connect to Nintex app studio. What's worse I have no way of submitting a ticket to Nintex for help. Nor is there anything on these issues in your documentation. Every help takes me to a sales page to request a demo in Nintex.
                          Here's an idea,.. make it easy to submit a ticket or update your documentation or create a help feature similar to what's in O365 Nintex.

                            • Sharepoint connector to create list item shouldn't reset when edited

                              When I try to add fields to the Sharepoint "Create an item" connector, it resets everything. It would be great if I didn't have to recreate this every time I edit the workflow.

                              • Search instance details for text.

                                I'd like to be able to search through instance details for text. If I have 50 workflows kick off on a Box - New File upload start event (All with the same workflow name), and I want to find a specific one, it's currently impossible without just opening each one. If I log the filename or such, and I could search for the correct instance, that would be super useful. Thank you.

                                  When working on a workflow with someone else, it would be great if editing was locked if someone else had it opened in edit.. Also the ability to place notes on Publish / Save with Workflow version number.

                                  • Ability to Delete Instances

                                    Ability to delete instances. Without the ability to delete instances the API pulls all instances including all of the test instances which is just added noise to our reports.

                                      Hi Clint,

                                      Thanks for the suggestion! I will add this suggestion into the backlog for review.

                                      In the mean time – are you able to publish your workflow with “Test” in the name, and only when it’s Production ready, republish as new workflow? That way your query only needs to refer to the instances against the new workflow.
                                      Regards,
                                      Kate

                                    • Ability to edit "Footer Text"

                                      Allow the ability to edit the "Footer Text" (font size, bold, etc.). We find that users can easily overlook the link in the footer text.

                                        Hi Clint,

                                        Thanks for reaching out!

                                        When using Form based-Assign a task, (once you design your form) a “Task name (Form link)” context variable will allow you to reference the same hyperlink as is used in the auto-generated footer text.
                                        Insert the “Task name (Form link)” variable into your Message body, and you can modify the font/size/styling as you see fit.

                                        If you don’t mind the Footer repeating this call to action, leave it enabled; if you’d rather use the Message body exclusively, disable the field.

                                        Note: Each Assign a task action will have its own context variables group – Please ensure you use the correct variable in your message body. Unique Task names will help with identifying the correct group.

                                        Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any additional questions or would like some assistance with configuring the message.
                                        Regards,
                                        Kate

                                        Would be awesome to have a select option "Select All" export to CSV button. At the moment I'm having to open a failed instance in a new tab (Because if you click back on normal window you'll have to manually scroll back down to where you were) one by one at the "Instance start data" and pasting it into an Excel spreadsheet to get a better picture of why it failed.

                                        • Secured forms on NWC for item submission + tasks

                                          All the forms (Items + tasks) are now fully public. Everyone who has access to the link can act on it. How can you be sure that your task is not going to be answered by someone who shouldn't have access to it ? You can't. So, how do you secure your workflow? You can't.

                                          Can we have a way to secure every kind of forms? like a SalesForce / Google/Microsoft "passeport"? and the ability to only allow a list of users (or using wild searches : *@mydomain.com) to connect to this form!
