  1. Task Form File Available as File Variable

    Currently files that are uploaded into a Task Form within NWC cannot be added to a File variable within the workflow designer as they're held as 'Collections' vs. 'Files'. Would be great if files from Task Forms acted as files throughout the rest of the workflow design.

  2. Assign a task with one resulting path

    It would be very helpful to have an "assign a task" that doesn't require a two-path decision outcome. Often we are finding that we want to assign someone to simply update a variable and flow down the same route no matter what decision is made. However, with the options we have now, doing this requires some work-arounds or dead-end paths.

  4. workflow initiated datetime in start event context

    The datetime for a when a workflow is initiated is not available in the workflow designer.

    Consider if I have a form which has a date control for date and time called 'formdate'.

    In the workflow designer when I insert a variable I have the 'formdate' in the 'start event'. That has a default value of datenow().
    'Context' give current date/time and as well as workflow instance ID, etc.
    'Start event context' supplies workflow initiator (if authenticated form).

    As actions can be delayed (ie use of current datetime) it would be great to have the datetime for when the workflow…

  5. 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.

  6. Autocomplete option for form based task

    Would love a way for a task to time out if the data is not collected in time. In our case, the default outcome would reset the workflow to another stage in the workflow if timed out. Do not want to use express approval, because it would require another several steps to collect the necessary data

  7. More date formats

    Hey guys, could we have a few more options in the Format date action? e.g. ddd mmm yyyy. i.e. combinations that have full names of days and months both in dd mm order and mm dd order. Cheers

  8. 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.

  10. Auto-save workflow design

    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....

  11. Add actionable message to task email

    There needs to be an option to add lazy approval actionable message to emails generated from tasks. One of the biggest drawbacks that is keeping me from switching from O365 to Cloud, is that option.

    With current cloud lazy approval, user has to reply to email with response. With O365 actionable message, the user can click simply click on a response button. Having the user reply to an email, adds a layer of complexity that will allow for errors and delayed processes.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  15. Retrieving Message header in assign a task action

    On the "assign a task" action, we can already retrieve the Message body, that would be great to also retrieve the message header.

    It may not be used in many cases but for some cases (we are facing one at the moment on a projetc), we would be able to retrieve the IP of the sender.
    There could be many other usages

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. Box new file option - start workflow for all files in subfolders

    Ability to have a Box New File start option that triggers on all files added to it and its subfolders. Often I want a single workflow to run on all files that are added, but I want the option to have those files in subfolders.

  20. Try catch block is missing workflow

    Hi Team,

    we cant see try catch activity in the workflow designer and its making problem big time for us in orchestrating the process flow as there is always set of activity which is error prone and if we dont put exception handling it will break the process instances so often and we are not able to take any remedation action of failure .
