  1. 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.

    • 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.

        • 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!

          • 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.

            • Branch by value support for numbers

              Currently the "branch by value" action only allows to branch by "text" values. I would be great to also support "number" values.

                Hi Henning,

                Thank you for the suggestion.
                This feature is actually planned to start shortly, and should be delivered within the next few weeks. I will keep this ticket updated as the item progresses through development.
                Regards,
                Kate

              • Display context in modal dialogs

                When deleting a workflow or connection it would be helpful to display the actual name of the element to be deleted in the modal dialog. I like the warning, prior to deleting something - but in order to avoid accidental deletion I would appreciate to see the name of the item being deleted.

                • Populate a NWC Forms single choice Form control with JSON objects from custom API

                  It would be good if we could automatically populate a single choice Form control (in my case it would be a drop-down list) using JSON objects obtained from a custom API (maybe populate the list by using an on Form load Rule?), and have it submit the supplied 'value' upon submission (in my case it would be a UID relating to records in our bespoke system).

                  This functionality I am after already exists within the Workflow Designer, via the values defined in the x-ntx-dynamic-values JSON vendor extension, but it does not appear to be possible within the Form Designer.

                    Thanks for your suggestion Sam. We are currently looking into our Data Sources feature which allows you to connect to different systems and populate a drop down control.

                  • Set field value = browser query parameter

                    Rules builder now allows the checking of a browser query parameter to conditionally format the form. However, what would be exceptionally valuable would to be able to set the value of a form field equal to the value of the browser query parameter. If this was possible, we could generate the URL to the NWC form with parameter (unique GUID) in SharePoint, send it out to a user, and then match the submitted form back up with the parent process in SharePoint. At the moment, rules only allow form fields to be set to a hard coded value.

                      We are continuing to refine the process of rules and formula builder which includes the get query string function. We will update this item when we get closer to release.

                    • Secure Datagateway to on-premises LOB system

                      As pr. now if we need to connect to on-premises LOB data from O365 workflow/form or Workflow Cloud, we need to make the SQL server/LOB system available through internet. For many this is not an option. Please consider a solution like Microsofts Datagateway for Flow and PowerApps. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/gateway-reference

                      • Have more than 4 controls across in design

                        When placing fields and I have 4 controls, but I may need to change some out but can't due to only having 4. EG>>

                        City, Country, State, Zip Code
                        If country equals Australia I want the drop down with Australian states
                        If the country equals USA I want a drop down that only has USA states, But I can't because I can't design the form to include all the different State fields I require for my rules.

                        • Add category for Nintex Mobile

                          In the settings of the form (where we can set the title and description), having the possibility to type a category for the form would be really useful. So that the form can appear in a category in Nintex mobile app.

                          • 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.

                            • Debugging assistance: Capture JSON after a task or log all variables action

                              When a task is completed it would be handy to capture the JSON for debugging purposes. Alternatively if there was an action that logged all variables and their values, that would be useful too. It's possible to log all variables now but that means updating the action each time a new variable is created. If there was a "log all" action or something similar to the verbose logging that is available with Nintex on-prem this would help with debugging.

                                Hey Chris,

                                Noted. We do have the verbose logging feature that you mentioned in the backlog.

                                As for capturing the JSON of the tasks we’ll need to look into that in further detail on how we would do that.

                                Hi There,

                                Wondering it this has been implemented or resolved? Re-play "Assign a task" feature?
                                I've created a basic workflow to test start event form, then after that it has another step below "Assign a Task" with form.
                                i.e Staff fills out Nintex Cloud form and one of the fields are "Manager" easy. (The to field is a variable set from start event "varManagerEmail") if for some reason there's a typo in the email address. Nintex can see it's done it's job and next step, however the "Manager" never got the email because of the typo and the instance is…

                                  Hi Will,

                                  Based on what you’re trying to achieve, it sounds like “delegation” would be the best solution; If the task is assigned to a user/invalid email address, delegate the task to a new user/valid email address.

                                  This request has been added to the product backlog. Thanks for your feedback!
                                  Kate

                                  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.

                                  • Creating a link to Instance from Tasks

                                    Hi there,

                                    Would it be possible to create a hyperlink of some type to the instance ID the task dashboard is linked to? rather than checking the task when it was initiated then going into the instance and looking for it. Just going directly to the instance ID would be super helpful.

                                    Thank you,
                                    Will

                                    • Retrieve day of the week from date/datetime variables

                                      I would like to be able to take a date variable and find out the day of the week (Mon, Tue, etc.) There are times where I want to take action based on day of the week, but have no ability to do that right now.

                                        When trying to set a conditional start option for date, you are only able to set a "SET" date. it cannot be a variable or a context item, like [TODAY]. In my use case I have a workflow executing when an opportunity in MSCRM has been moved to a certain stage. I don't want the workflow to execute if the stage was change yesterday and the the record has been updated and still on that same stage. Placing a time constraint will solve this as I know exactly when the stage was set.
