  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).

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. Assign a task without email notification

    Give the option to assign a task without emailing the assignee(s).
    With the addition of my nintex, some users are already asking for the option to just monitor their tasks in there on a daily basis rather than receive emails for each task.

    If multiple users are assigned it would be good to chose who gets the email and who doesnt. This would be particularly useful to send a notification to a shared inbox and allow users of that inbox (also assignees) to complete the task as their users.

  6. Add the functionality to the Query List action to support variables

    Just like you support variables for “Update items”, we want “Query a list” able to specify a value.

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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…

  10. 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…

  11. Change Start Event

    An option to change the workflow start even if all actions in the workflow are in a disabled action set. Currently its almost like redesigning the workflow if you want to change the start event. It should be made easier

  14. task list

    I really would like to have the ability to create and designate a task list per workflow, like there is in O365. I'd really like to be able to use the task list on the same site as the O365 list that is used to start the workflow. Or at bare minimum, the ability to open the task from the NWC Tasks list. If it isn't part of the workflow to extract the task information, there doesn't appear to be any way to see it.

    Side note, it would also be really helpful to see the date of posts in…

  15. 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.

  16. 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!

  17. SharePoint Online - Retrieve an item - Set the "SharePoint site URL" by variable

    Hi team,

    I am using the "SharePoint Online - Retrieve an item" action in a workflow. Why can't we set the "SharePoint site URL" parameter by using a variable?
    The "SharePoint Online - Update items" & "SharePoint Online - Create an item" allows for us to insert a variable.

    This is extremely useful when switching between Dev and Prod sites. Is there an alternative option here?

  18. 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?

  19. 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…

  20. 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…
