  1. Box new file option - start workflow for all files in subfolders

    Ability to have a Box New File start option that triggers on all files added to it and its subfolders. Often I want a single workflow to run on all files that are added, but I want the option to have those files in subfolders.

  2. Box - 'Share Folder link' action

    Box - Share Folder link action:

    This is supported in the Box API so can we have a 'Share Folder Link' action (or make the existing 'Share file link' action applicable to both scenarios) so that the share link can be used to update other line of business systems such as Salesforce?

  3. Display context in modal dialogs

    When deleting a workflow or connection it would be helpful to display the actual name of the element to be deleted in the modal dialog. I like the warning, prior to deleting something - but in order to avoid accidental deletion I would appreciate to see the name of the item being deleted.

  4. Please add an Exchange Online connector

    Please add Exchange Online triggers and actions to Nintex Workflow Cloud. I would love to be able to use the following examples:

    • Run workflow when an email is received
    • Move email to folder
    • Get email

    And I also would love to be able to get these ability for Office Group Mailboxes.

    We have recently added an Exchange Online connector.

    We are not able to start a workflow based on an e-mail yet, but this will be coming later this year as well.

  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. Add Oracle Connector to Nintex Workflow Cloud

    Will you please add an Oracle Connector to Nintex Workflow Cloud that would permit workflows to log in to an Oracle database as a user and perform tasks that the user is authorized to perform (e.g., Create, Read, Update, Delete, Select) operations? Thank you.

  7. Rule - Date2 control can't be before Date1 control

    Similar to booking sites. Having the ability to have 2 date controls with the second date control not having the ability to select a date before the first date control. Or at least to fail validation is date2 is earlier than Date1

  8. Success Information - Form sent

    After submitting a form the form redirects to the success message which is always "Form submitted successfully."
    Although it's possible to route to another publicly available site instead, it would be awesome to just modify the text message to reflect different languages. In our case it would be sufficient to have that text in German without the need to build a whole site for this and host it.

  9. 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.

  11. Expand calculate date

    I would love to be able to calculate the last workday of the week/month/year based on a date. It would also be great if the ability could be added to get the 1st/2nd/3rd/4th/5th monday or other day of the month and some other options.

    Could you please add this option?

  12. 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…

  13. Call a web service action with credential/token from existing connector

    Most of the REST API endpoints required to supply Authorization: Bearer as part of the Header, if a different version of the "call a web service" action is provided with the capability to make use of the Connector(s) in Nintex Workflow Cloud, that will open up the opportunity of all available endpoints of the external system to which we are integrating with.

    e.g. All the Actions of the Sharepoint online covers only few endpoints of the Sharepoint Online. The proposed version of "call a web service" will make the Sharepoint Connector to be used to access all the available Sharepoint…

    Hi KK, thanks for the suggestion. As we’ve recently released Nintex Xtensions, why not build a Connector using the Nintex Xtensions Framework?

    This makes the action much more reusable and easier to configure. Or is your request to do with something else?

    Thanks!

    Apologies as we went quiet on this – it’s been a while as we had a few other priorities to work on.

    The plan now is that we will be able to solve for this via a new capability that we will be introducing in a form of a Table. The general idea is that the table will allow the persistence of data and will integrate with workflows providing operations like CRUDL and forms via data sources.

  17. Convert value and store into a different variable type

    Hi guys,

    Is there going to be an action where we can convert variables into other type of variables (Text to Date, etc)?

    For Context: I'm building a workflow that will pull a date value from Salesforce. However, when NWC pulls this field, it creates it as a Text Variable. There isn't a way i can convert this variable back into a date type to use in the workflow.

    Let me know if you need any more info.

    Thanks,

    Pat

  18. 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…

    The team have commenced working on Manual delegation. on top of assignees being able to delegate their own tasks, Business owners of a workflow will be able to review all instances in the Workflow tracker. Here, Business owners can view the Start event details, associated tasks, and be able to delegate.


    This should solve for the "typo in the email address" scenario:

    Business owner can see the Start form, identify an incorrect task, delegate to the correct email address/user. This user will be able to see the same task email body, with any additional delegation comments from the Business owner. If task assignees have the permission, they will be able to see the Start form in My Nintex.

  19. New Salesforce capability idea

    Not a product problem. But something that has popped up a few times now when dealing with Salesforce Leads. Having the ability to convert a lead to a contact and be able to configure an action to create a new account / Opportunity or assign . the lead to Account / Opportunity IDs would be be really great.
    The only way to achieve this at the moment, with out using APEX is to look for a lead, and if it existing copy all the information to variables. Delete the lead and the recreate a new contact using the stored data…

  20. Embed Box UI Elements in Nintex Forms

    Dear Nintex,

    I work at Box in Sales Engineering. I'm using your forms designer which is great for most use cases I work with. The one thing that would be really great if you could consider adding the ability to add Box UI Elements embedded in one of your forms. It would enable users to browse content in folders, preview documents in forms, and, with the new open-with element enable in-line editing as well. Is there a way in which this can be achieved today, or is this something we can consider in the future:

    https://codepen.io/box-platform/

    Thanks and regards,

    John
