  1. Active Directory People Picker

    It would be tremendously helpful to have an AD based people picker on NWC similar to the tools in on prem or O365 nintex.

  2. Shorten URL for Workflow Cloud Form

    It would be nice to be able to create a shorten URL for the Forms in Workflow Cloud just like your able to do with Live Forms on SharePoint on Prem. We have already had a few request from stakeholders of some Forms and Workflows we have already created on this.

  3. Regular Expression

    Having the ability to use regular expression to validate if a users input is valid based to customs rules for that data. Examples would be like phone number formats, not allowing numbers/letters, etc. This is super helpful when doing validation outside of normal validation method.

  4. Assigning Task to Multiple Approvers

    Allowing a task to be sent out to multiple users/ approvers would be helpful in some situations. I have tried many workarounds with fiddling with variables and keep getting an "invalid email format" error. The only workaround I have found is creating email distribution groups within my org, which is a very messy workaround.

    Hi Clint,

    Thanks for reaching out!
    You’re right, unfortunately there is no work around for adding multiple email addresses to a Task action, other than to assign tasks to an email distribution list.
    The good news is Multiple assignees for Assign a Task is already in our backlog, and awaiting prioritization.

    Just to get a better understanding of your scenario, to ensure we’ll satisfy what you’re trying to achieve:
    - How many assignees would you typically configure in your Task action?
    - Would you expect all assignees to approve the task before proceeding?

    Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!
    Thanks for your patience,
    Kate

  5. Auto-create sharepoint online list

    It would be really nice to have the option within the 'SharePoint Online - Create an Item' action, to be able to auto-create a SharePoint list with fields based on the form fields.

    We have forms with 400+ fields worth of data that need to be stored. Manually creating a list in SharePoint Online with 400+ columns is so time consuming. Would be much easier if the two systems worked together to auto-create these columns.

    Hi Joanne,

    I am pleased to announce we have begun development on the data connectivity control for Nintex Forms for Nintex Worklfow Cloud.

    I will update this ticket when we have more to share.

  7. 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.

  8. Add Variables without having to remove existing variables from workflow actions

    When I want to add a new variable after I've used existing variables in other actions in the workflow, i have to remove the existing variables from all the actions in the workflow. If that happens to be an action creating an item. That's a lot to remove and then add back in. We should be able to add variables whenever we like.

  9. Multilingual Forms

    Currently, if forms in Nintex Workflow Cloud require support for multiple languages, the designer has to create a form for every language required. As an NWC workflow start event only supports one form, it means creating a workflow for every language required (unless someone has a better way).

    It would be great if NWC supported language variations or, at the very least, allow one workflow to support multiple forms for language variations.

  10. 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.

    Hi Arne,

    I need to ask a few questions about what you’re trying to achieve:

    Is this a specific date that you will configure into the workflow directly (e.g. “I want to wait until April 1st”)?

    If not, will you calculate a date in the future, based on the current date (e.g. I want to wait for 7 days from this action completion point)?
    If this is the scenario you are trying to achieve, then “Pause for duration” will be the action you’re looking for. This will let you configure a relative duration to pause for.

    If yes, how far in advance will that specific date be? Once that date lapses, will you update the workflow to another date in the future?
    If you have a specific date in mind, then you will have to add 1 more action into your workflow – “Find interval between dates”. By using the…

  11. Assign a task - Auto complete task

    Missing the ability to auto complete tasks, as found in Nintex for Office 365 for instance.

    Would be great if this feature was added to NWC aswell.

  12. use Form based/Express Approval Assign Task Actions in one Go

    Hi,

    Use case is I'm showing the information captured in previous step of workflow via form need to show in next action where Reviewer A should see the request details in email. Reviewer A should be able to perform below actions:

    1) Checking the request detail on email and extend approval by directly clicking on URL/Action button (Reject/Approve) via email or by responding to Reject/Approve to email

    2) If Reviewer A thinks information needs to be updated he should click on the form link available in the form and edit or add some comments and submit form

    Means, Reviewer A…

  13. 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

  14. Ability to view completed task form

    I have a NWC workflow that, amongst other things, assigns a task to the submitter's manager. The manager completes a few multiple choice fields, fills in their name, etc., then ticks their approval to complete the form.

    I really need to be able to view that completed form. I have included the collection variables from the multiple choice fields in a subsequent email that the workflow generates, but it would be great to be able to see what options they haven't ticked.

  15. Export variables to CSV

    We find that there are many times that a CSV or text output is necessary for processes that interact with 3rd party systems including legacy systems that do not have connectors. It would be extremely powerful if we could have a CSV created and stored temporarily in the NWC blob storage and then attached to a NWC email. These files could then be reviewed by the party and used as a data source within an RPA script or as a direct import.

  16. Add page names to reflect Dashboard, Designer, Settings menu selections

    Add page titles to reflect Dashboard, Designer, Settings (menu selections)--e.g., click Dashboard, display ;Workflow Dashboard' (as page title); click Settings, displays 'Settings' page title. Clicking Designer actually displays a new Designer--even if I had a Workflow Designer opened and then clicked Settings and then clicked Designer... hoping to get back to my opened Workflow. Not a good user experience.

  17. European region for NWC

    There is currently only one region available for NWC. For compliance reasons we need Europe as a possibility. The other post i for multiple regions, and we don't need that. We need more regions available, specific for us is Europe.

  18. More Style and Font options

    Workflow cloud forms have very limited font and style capabilities. It is very much a necessity to have a label/title font size, input font-size on controls and a font size option on the label rather than the existing Heading 1- 6 which is very limiting.

    Thank you for your suggestion. We are currently reviewing our style builder and looking at more granular control of fonts and colours.

    I will update this feature when this moves to development.

  19. Provide date options without timestamp

    Please create a context variable for the current date without the timestamp. When trying to use the current date for document generation (or pretty much anything) the majority of the time we don't want to include the hours/minutes. I've seen blog posts of creating conversion methods to strip this out, but it should be an out of the box variable. Please fix this.

  20. Make form rules side config like form styles

    LOVE the side config panels for Start Event and Form Styles. Would really like the Form Rules to also be a side panel too. Toggling between tabs is time consuming.

    Thanks for your suggestion Isaiah. Our rules engine has evolved quite a lot and is a lot more powerful – therefore will not fit into the size of the config panel.

    We have discussed how a rule could be created while still retaining context of the form designer. I dont have anything to share at this time, but will update this ticket if the status changes.

    Cheers,
    Euan
