  1. DEV Testing

    I was just reading up about the testing feature within the NWC workflow designer. I've used this feature before and have found it helpful for some of my less complex workflows for testing simpler ideas. I've found that I do not make use of it with my production workflows however because it still sends out tasks and emails to whoever they are typically assigned to. When I do testing I can't be sending my vendors and coworkers extraneous emails. It'd be helpful to have the testing feature default all emails and tasks to my own email rather than running them…

  2. Exclude weekends from task assignment reminders and escalations

    Hi there, it would be great to be able to cater for business days only (exclude weekends), when configuring NWC task assignment reminders and escalations. Currently when specifying days as part of reminders and escalations there seems to be no easy way to exclude weekends. Thanks.

  3. Schedule option

    I have the requirement to run the workflow Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. I don't see anywhere to set it in the Schedule. Can you please help? This feature is very common in Windows Server: Task Scheduler. Thanks!

  4. Sorting numbers from smaller to larger, larger to smaller in a collection

    Current sort collection does not sort the numbers/integers in smaller to larger or larger to smaller. When I try to sort a collection in my workflow the result after sorting is something like this ["100.0", "112.0", "114.0", "127.0", "135.0", "148.0", "15.0", "40.0", "40.0", "42.0", "42.0", "42.0", "42.0", "42.0", "43.0", "44.0", "44.0", "44.0", "45.0", "45.0", "46.0", "46.0", "47.0", "47.0", "48.0", "52.0", "55.0", "57.0", "99.0"]

    I would be great if we can sort the numbers the way we did in Nintex office 365.

  5. option to not capture instance data for privacy reasons

    When a workflow executes all data for the workflow variables are available in the workflow instance start data in the NWC dashboard.

    Some data that is captured on forms would include data that is personal private information (eg personal email, phone number, etc).

    Thus the NWC instance data becomes an additional data store to be considered for data breach implications.

    It would be great for either:
    1) a global option when publishing the workflow to not capture variable values in instance start data

    or

    2) an optional variable by variable to not be captured in instance start data.

  6. Scheduling a task

    When starting a workflow with scheduling a task it would be great if would could schedule to repeat by the day of the week also. Like the outlook tasks.

  7. Trigger Workflow Start from another workflows Failed Instance

    I would love to be able to trigger a separate workflow instance upon a Failed INstance to a particular workflow. I would see it as a setting option for Failed Workflow instances. I know that you can setup an alert to someone for a failed instance, which is a win and it would be great if you could achieve or automate some additional things with a separate workflow. Cheers, Tye Eyden, New Belgium Brewing

  8. Issue with Nintex Workflow Cloud - Multiple choice control collection variable

    Hi, I am having an issue in Nintex Workflow Cloud, where a multiple choice control on the form, is holding the entire form response in the associated collection variable - instead of just the two options allowed as per selection. This is an existing workflow and previous entries were working fine. Have tried creating a new control and variable but still the same issue. Please advise. Thanks

  9. Workflow search actions/variables

    Sometimes you want to quickly jump to a certain action, or see where a certain variable is used. It would be great if there was a search bar somewhere on the workflow designer (see top-right of image for example) where you could search to match any variable names, action internal names, action renames) and it would bring them up a list of matches. Then you click next/previous to jump/highlight that action in the workflow (or if possible open the config and highlight where the value is used).

    An awesome extension to this would be to 'remove all' instances of a…

  10. Enable Workflow failure notification for Development Workflows - NWC

    Enable Workflow failure notification alerts on Nintex Workflow Cloud. This would be really useful when multiple workflows are under development. Instead of reviewing the Instance details regularly, the alerts would make it easier to get an insight on failed workflow instances.

  11. NWC Format date to string ISO8601 output format

    For the NWC action format date to string can we add the ISO8601 date format please.
    This is the format of yyyy-mm-ddThh:mi:ss.mmm (no spaces)
    or date style 126 in SQL format.
    (see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/t-sql/functions/cast-and-convert-transact-sql?view=sql-server-ver15#date-and-time-styles)

  12. Add snippets functionality to NWC

    Following from a discussion on the community, it would be great to bring the Nintex for SharePoint functionality of snippets to NWC.

    Snippets allows for parts of a workflow to be saved to a gallery for easy re-use in other workflows.

  13. NWC switch by value action needs a default branch for unhandled values

    Switch condition does not have an other loop. Trying to migrate a Nintex Office 365 workflow to NWC but due to lack of this functionality, the migrated WF cannot be like for like.

  14. Need to ability to see what exactly is written to a collection

    If i pull in user profile into a collection , I have no way of knowing what it is pulling. I need to be able to see into the collection (run a collection test) and then be able to parse out what i need.

  16. functions

    I need to do some simple string manipulations in a Cloud workflow (no forms), but Nintex support tells me that functions are not available in Nintex Workflow Cloud. Is that true?? If so, is there some alternative to using functions to manipulate strings? For example, I need to convert strings to all upper and all lower case.

  17. 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.

  19. Delineate Production and Development Workflow Publishing Permissions

    When configuring roles and user permissions there should be a way to configure a user's permission so that they can only publish development workflows vs. being able to publish both development and production workflows.

  20. 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
