  1. Update File Name in Workflow

    Would be great if there was a way to update the name of a file that has been submitted via a Nintex Form within the workflow instance itself. This would make it much easier to associate files with other references provided within the form, such as a Title or Name.

  2. 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.

  4. Show where variables are used in workflow

    Within the variable menu you should be able to see where a variable is being used (what actions) within the workflow.

    If you need to find and replace a variable within the workflow designer (such as needing to change a variable's type), when working with large workflows it is hard to find where the variables are being used, but you cannot update/remove the variable until all instances are removed from existing actions.

  5. 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 .

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

    Thanks!

  8. 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.

  10. 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

  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. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  17. Fetch attachment type: file from salesforce records

    Hi Guys,

    As of now using "Get file from a record" in NWC able to get collection of files of type : attachment. It would be nice if this can fetch attachment type: file also from salesforce. I guess in future salesforce releases the type:attachment may not be supported moving forward to Lightning in salesforce.

    Let me know if you need any more info.

  18. 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.

  19. Re-play Assign a Task feature

    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!

  20. 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.
