  1. 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.

  2. Enable action "Nintex Workflow Cloud - Get tasks" to query tasks created by action "Assign a task to multiple users"

    The "Get Tasks" action cannot obtain any information about tasks created by "Assign a task to multiple users". Accordingly, there is no way to detect the ongoing tasks from the same workflow or other workflows. Although I implemented the workaround by combining "Assign a task" actions and "Run parallel paths" action, the parallel tasks cannot be more than 9 due to the limitation of "Run parallel" action, and the workflow design gets very complicated.

  3. When confirming a "Delete workflow" please mention the workflow name

    When confirming a "Delete workflow" please mention the workflow name I am about to delete.
    It is so scary now to delete a workflow as the three dots on the right are veeeery far away from the workflow name on the left.
    Sorry but this feels almost too simple to ask.

  4. Security trim a form so only users who have permissions can access the form

    Capability to show hide forms according to whom business owner decides. Some forms should only be available for few users within the business/department and the process owner should be able to give remove access.

  5. 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.

  7. Purge NWC Instance Data on demand or on schedule

    It would be useful to have the ability to purge the instance data related to a workflow, especially for circumstances where you're collecting personal information.
    An example scenario would be to collect personal data via a NWC workflow with a form submission as a start event, then copying that data into a separate repository (such as SharePoint Online). Upon confirming the data was successfully copied, purging the workflow instance data.
    The other option could be a setting per workflow as to how long to retain instance data after the workflow completes either successfully or encounters an error.

    This is similar…

  8. Highlight custom actions in need of refresh after update

    When an Xtension is updated, the only way to refresh the actions within the workflows (as per the documentation) is to delete them, drag a new copy and reconfigure.
    We get that this is needed for not breaking existing workflows, but what is sorely lacking is the ability to locate them first.

    What would vastly help with this process is one or multiple of:
    A. From the Xtensions section, find workflows (at least prod published or all with visible status) that utilize actions from this Xtension - to be able to know where to look for what needs to be…

  9. Azure Active Directory Connector - Query User - Adding additional AD fields

    Additional common Azure Active Directory Connector fields need to be pulled in for querying a users by such as Office. We are needing to use the Active Directory Query Users Control to pull emails for staff members based off their Office and Job Title. With this we have notice that with this control, we can query most of the basic fields in Azure AD other then Office. Adding this would help where multiple people have the same title but are in different office building.

    This is based on a ticket (case 00404834) I put in about a month ago where…

  10. Create PDF Rule of Completed Form

    The ability from a form rule to create a PDF of the completed form.

    Often on submit customers want to save a copy of the completed form itself in PDF format to a document store for record keep purposes.

    Developers don't want to create a separate report for this purpose, a quick and dirty print to PDF that looks reasonably clean will tick the box for this requirement for auditability requirements.

    The document should then be made available within the workflow to save away accordingly in a workflow event.

  11. 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.

  12. 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!

  13. Save and complete task later

  14. 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.

  15. Separate publish slots for Dev and Prod

    Would be very useful to have the ability to publish a workflow to both Dev and Prod, or ideally publish to Dev -> Promote to Prod.

    Right now when publishing to Dev when a Prod exists overwrites the Prod with the Dev, which is far from ideal, and makes testing changes to existing workflows harder than they need to be.

  17. 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.

  18. Allow setting of default value(s) for a Person Control in a Task Form, or allow the dynamic setting of Person Control values by Form Rule.

    Allow setting of default value(s) for a Person Control in a Task Form, or allow the dynamic setting of Person Control values by Form Rule. This would be useful in cases where the Task performer needs to adjust an existing list of people. Unfortunately the old trick of using a Form Rule doesn't work here because the Value of the Person control is not available to set. Nintex Support (Case #00430175) confirms that this functionality does not yet exist and there is no current workaround.

  19. Add "Get Sheet" action to Smartsheet connector

    Recently, the Smartsheet connector added the "Add a row" and "Update a row" actions, which is awesome! It would be great if we also had the "Get Sheet" action. Right now, there's a "Get Sheets" action, which I believe will return a list of sheets, but not the sheet's contents and rows.

    If I wanted to find and apply an update to a row in a sheet, normally I'd follow this set of steps:

    1. If not known, determine desired Sheet ID by using "Get Sheets" action and looping through sheets until desired sheet is found, then store the ID
    2. Use…

    Thank you for the feedback. We had "Get Sheet" on our list of items to add, but were not able to in the timeframe that we have. I've opened it for voting now, as i'd like to see how much interest there is for this functionality. I do wonder though - you are basically using it to find the row to update. What is the typical search criteria for that? Would it make sense to have an "update a row" and allow you to filter like you do in a SharePoint list?
  20. Decimal and currency form controls - specify field format

    A lot of our European form users are complaining on the Decimal and Currency fields not allowing comma as a decimal separator (the form control completely blocks entering anything but numbers and dot).

    This escalates quickly from a UX issue to a process error issue when someone submits a x100 value in the field (it's really easy to not notice the comma being 'eaten' by the field, especially for users of the numeric part of standard keyboards).

    It would help greatly if we could set cultureInfo or field format for value parsing on the decimal and currency fields.
