  1. More collaborative designer space

    It would be great to have a more collaborative designer space within NWC, where multiple individuals could work within the same workflow at the same time and see in real-time, changes someone else makes.

    Think Google Sheets or Google Docs. Not critical to have, but would be a convenient capability.

  2. Add claim task option to multi-user tasks

    With the multi-user task, please add an ability for a user to claim the task so the other users do not need to action it.

  3. Add Get and Set Metadata actions for folders in Box.com

    Please add actions to the Box group that allows you to Get Folder Metadata and Set Folder metadata. We can do it for files but we cannot do it for folders without building a custom Xtension.

  4. Automatically place cursor in search box after clicking the X to clear the search box

    Automatically place cursor in search box after clicking the X to clear the search box. This applies to the workflow and forms designers, in all search boxes.

  5. SharePoint Online Retrieve an item - Get the direct Item URL in the resulting object

    In the resulting object of a Retrieve an item action, there no "Item URL" property. It's possible to recreate it with the rest of the properties but it leads to more character string actions (possible to use a component workflow for that though).

  6. Save and complete task later

    I would really love to see an option where I can save a task form and edit it later on, like the start forms.

  7. Allow multiple items to be added to a collection with one action

    Similar to the "Set Variable" action, the "Add Item To Collection" action should allow multiple items to be added to a collection.

    Currently, 1 item can be added to a collection at a time. If there are many items that need to be added, this creates a lot of actions. If they could be added in bulk, this would greatly reduce the visual footprint of our workflows, as well as the action count.

  8. Ability to remove Wait for Task completion for NWC tasks.

    Allow the ability to remove the "Wait for Task Completion" stop on NWC Tasks like how it is in O365.

    There are many scenarios where I need to have the workflow continue on without waiting for a task to be complete. Instead, I use variables/fields to identify if the task is completed or not. Then later on in the process, if that task isn't completed but needs to be before the workflow can continue on, I simply check the variable to decide if it can continue.

    I do this with 99% of my workflow tasks in O365 and it works…

  9. Allow query of NWC Tasks by assignee

    There is a big push to use NWC over O365 for workflows, but I am unable to utilize NWC for our core workflows because I can't send one email that lists all of the tasks waiting for each person.

    in the old SharePoint, users got individual email reminders for each active task. They hated it and it resulted in them ignoring the emails or creating rules to hide them because there were too many. They are all excited that in Nintex, I am sending them only 1 daily reminder email that lists all of the open tasks for them, including…

  10. Test Workflow using start variables from history

    Workflow Testing, give a copy function to reference a past workflow start even and copy in all the variables where they can be edited before being used for a test run.

  11. zoom out

    Hello Team,

    Will love to have the ability to zoom out a little more while working with huge workflows, to easily maneuver around the page.

    Thanks

  12. Allow entry of SharePoint group and/or AAD Security group to Assignee field of Task Assignment actions of NWC.

    Since this is critical and urgent that affects our NWC implementation, can you please consider the feature improvement?

    We're currently using Nintex for Office365 and going to implement Nintex Workflow Cloud.
    Our current template with Nintex for Office365 is supporting SharePoint Group because the template is using start a task process action and the action is supporting a SharePoint Group in Participant field. This action have “Assign a task to each member within groups” option.

    However in current NWC, we cannot enter a group to Assignee field of task assignment actions. It only allows entry of individual user(s).

    We need…

    Thanks for this suggestion.

    The way we are going to handle this is by creating two new actions, one for retrieving members of a SP Group and one for retrieving members of an AD group. Both these actions will output a object including a collection of users which can be used in the task action.

  13. branch by stage reorder branches

    In the state machine action in Workflow for Sharepoint it is possible to move the branches left and right in the designer.

    It would be great to be able to reorder the branches within a 'Branch By Stage' in the workflow designer.

    Often additional branches are added to the workflow logic as the process is developed or enhanced. From a logic display point of view it would be very helpful to be able to reorder them.

  14. SmartSheet as Start Event

    Hello Team!

    As per Dustin Namdar, to create a UserVoice request for activating Nintex Workflow based on a new row or a change being taken place in a row of Smartsheet.
    I am sharing the API for add row and others below, that might help with the interface structure.
    https://smartsheet-platform.github.io/api-docs/#rows

    In short, looking for a new start event based on new rows added to Smartsheet.

    Thank you

    Although we’re providing an update to the smartsheet connector this month, it unfortunately doesn’t include Start Events.

    We’re monitoring this item further to see if we’ll add this support in the future.

  15. Calculation flexibility

    Multiple calculations in a single action. Currently I can only add 2 values together. This gets wild when I have 5 + values that I need to add together

  16. Make component workflow outputs optional

    We have a few component workflows that return multiple output variables, but we don't always care about all the outputs in every situation. There's a number of built in actions with outputs (Call a Web Service) where the outputs aren't required, and don't need to be defined in order to save/use the action.

    It would be nice if the outputs of a component workflow were optional, so that we don't have to create variables to store data we don't always care about?

  17. Insert Variables Flyout idea

    The Insert Variables flyout shown when inserting variables into an action's configuration should either not close when scrolling through the action's properties, or there should be a checkbox in that flyout to not close it when scrolling through the properties, default to not checked.

    I find that if I have to insert a lot of variables into an action configuration (Create Item in Office 365 for example) then if I have to scroll down to reach more fields, the flyout will close, requiring me to open it again and search for the variables I was last at to insert more…

  18. Start condition on dynamic date

    When setting up the start condition on an event from a 3rd party SaaS system, it is currently impossible to use a dynamic date value like 'Today' or 'Instance start date' as you cannot insert variables into the start condition.

  19. Task Form Link Variable

    It would be great to have a default variable in the workflow the workflow that stores the link to a task form. Right now I grab these through the API connections but it would be much more intuitive and clean on the developer end if we didn't need to.

    Thanks!

  20. Send Info Via SmartSheet Connection

    Hi Team!

    I'd like to be able to send information to SmartSheet from my workflow. Currently the SmartSheet connector only supports retrieving information which limits my ability to use the connector.
