  1. Response output as JSON instead of string when component workflow is triggered from external system

    When I try to use the OpenAPI swagger specification for a component workflow and trigger the workflow from another system - the response output is a string which has the instance id of the workflow that was triggered. Instead could this be returned as a JSON object? Is there any future release plan that would make this change?

  2. Improve error handling

    Received the below error:

    Incompatible character encoding: ASCII-8BIT and UTF-8

    The issue ended up being caused by a salesforce process trigger failing within the workflow. The error was not relevant to the underling issue, making it hard to troubleshoot the issue.

  4. Start Event trigger filters

    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.

  5. Specify workflow salesforce component enhancement

    In Salesforce, you can now add the Nintex Workflow component to your pages. Since workflows are usually specific by object or otherwise, it would make a lot of sense if the workflow could be selected and attached to a component. Further, if the form could just show up without showing the name of workflow that would be great.

    Another enhancement would be the ability to call a workflow from a button or action directly. For this there is a work around, create a custom checkbox field, set workflow to run when checkbox is checked and immediately uncheck when workflow starts.…

  9. Capture of Request Content in workflow variable

    External start workflow required the "Request content (parameters)" to be provided in the body of the REST call, capturing the "Request content" into a workflow variable, allows capture of additional data that are not defined as Start Variable(s) of the workflow. This capability supports External Start workflow in Nintex Workflow Cloud to be used as a "Callback URL" end point. This end point with the "Request Content" captured, supports the parsing of returned data and actions to be taken against the returned data.

    External Start workflow if capable of capturing Request Content is important as it supports action to be…

  10. String to date action

    We need to have a more complete approach to manipulating dates.

    Scenario: External start receives a date value to a date field. Another systems (CRM Query Record action for example) take the date in another format.

    Issue: Can't pass the variable to the Salesforce Query Record action as you can't get the date in the right format

    Potential short term fix: Create a string to date action - we pass the date to the external start variable (string), maipulate string into right format, use 'string to date' action to set a date variable in a format that the Salesforce query…

  12. Copy a collection variable to another collection variable

    I am looking for an action to copy the content of a collection variable to another collection variable. Essentially duplicating the content.

  13. Store Item for Remove Item from Collection

    "Remove item from colleciton" collection operation does not currently support to store the removed item to a variable, because of this, we will need to use two collection operations to achieve the goal of removing an item from collection + store the removed item to a variable.

    1. Get item from collection
    2. Remove item from collection

    If the "Remove item from collection" has the "Store Item" field, that can avoid by just calling the "Remove item from collection" without the "Get item from collection" first.

  15. External start: Add/Revoke tokens

    From a security perspective, it is needed that a new token could be generated for an 'External start' and also old ones could be revoked.

    Example: When someone leaves the company and (s)he knows the url/token and could possible abuse this.

    Even better would be if there could be multiple tokens (read: customers) per 'External start' url and if in the workflow designer, the used token could be retrieved/used.
