  1. Show the workflow designer is open by a user

    Identify workflows that are currently locked / being edited / opened by a user so that work does not get overwritten. Also show who is editing and how long it has been open. This has been an issue where work has gotten overwritten.

  2. 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.

  3. Ability to set a specific Time to a date time variable

    We need the ability to set the time portion of a date time variable to a specific date and time, not just add time to a date.

  4. Feature to better utilise forms repeating section

    Repeating sections are great but only in limited conditions. I would like to see them become more useful in workflows. I would like the repeating sections to be available as a form variable collection so you can add it to later task forms. We are currently handling this with loop by n operations. Parsing the data out into individual named variables and then using form visibility rules to add them to the task. We should be able to drop a repeating section start variable onto a task which generates dynamically based on the start form. either that or allow the…

  5. Create a new user role for users to view override tasks for a particular workflow

    Create a new role for users to view override tasks for a particular workflow.
    Currently a user that would like to view the tasks in NWC needs to be a Global Administrator.
    As we build more solutions on NWC, it would be good to have a specific user role for overriding tasks but for particular workflows. IE, if the user is a workflow owner AND the new 'task override role', they will have the ability to view and override tasks.

    Hi Steve,


    We do have plans to introduce the ability for Business owners to be able to override tasks, for workflows they own.


    We're working through some other higher priority features at the moment, so there's no firm timeline on this yet, but I will endeavour to update this ticket as it progresses through.


    Regards,

    Kate

  6. 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.

  7. Ability to manually enter a date in Date field

    There are occasions when completing a Date field is a little cumbersome, since you have to use the calendar popup. It's not a big deal if you're selecting a date in the near past or near future, but if you're trying to enter (for example) a birthdate or hire date, you have to do a lot of clicking to go back to the appropriate year and then potentially click several more times to get to the appropriate month. Our previous forms software allowed for manual entering of dates (while still proscribing the format, e.g., DD/MM/YYYY); it would be nice if…

  9. Automate Section in NWC - Add "Published by" field for developers for filter options.

    Automate section in Cloud - add published by field so we know who created the workflow. Add filters for publish by and edited by. Currently we can only filter by status and start event and tags. This field is made available in the "My Nintex" section.

  10. Allow one NWC Workflow link to more than one SharePoint site

    So I am inside a larger organisation where we have regular use of specific workflows and it would be really handy to reduce our smaller workflows with less than 5 actions by having a single workflow pointed to by a button press or regular check.
    This will mean that we have less to manage and set up.
    EG. We have an item that might happen on a list like an email out notifications or updates on multiple sites but we have an M365 SPO site list on each site but under the same name. Would be good to link multiple…

  11. 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.

  12. Add a List View control in Form Designer - Nintex Workflow Cloud

    I'm having a requirement that I need to show a "list" of items inside the Nintex Form and for each item I need to give additional upload button, download button and a "Yes/No" field.
    Currently, there is no solution for displaying a list from SharePoint (or from other databases) inside Nintex Form.
    It'll be so helpful if you add a "List View" control in the Form Designer or please suggest me any alternative solution.

    Regards,
    Anirudh

    Thank you for your input Anirudh.  Would you also expand on use case?  Why the download and upload?  What is the participant trying to accomplish with this form?  


    We like to open this up for voting as well.

  13. Make barcode scanning via camera work in forms that are running in mobile browser window

    Barcode scanning via camera is only available when you open the Nintex form in Nintex Mobile.
    Please make barcode scanning work with forms that are running in mobile browser window (including forms with access restriction set to "anyone with the URL")

  15. Pre-populating Answers and Repeating Sections

    In my organisation, forms need be signed-off by several levels of management before they are complete. If they're unsatisfied with anything, this can be passed back to the previous stage. This means I need to save and recover the current answers, then pre-populate them in the form at each stage.

    Currently I do this by saving answers to a SQL database, then recalling them as a comma delimited string and using a substring to 'cut up' the answers. I did try extracting each answer as a row in a Collection (by using a Pivot table in SQL), but this required…

  16. 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…

  17. Form Rules for Multiple select

    Ability to choose multiple options under one selection, rather than creating rules for each option. Please see the User Department attachment for an example of another company doing this.

    Currently, we have to make several options to do this, please see multiple Nintex example. This also restricts us at 15 and I have more divisions than that - cannot use another as that conflicts with this rule.

  18. 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.

  19. Feature to sync User roles with IdP Groups

    It would make user management a lot easier if Workflow Cloud user roles could be automatically assigned via IdP group membership, and then automatically deleted if a user is not a member of a synced Idp group.

  20. Default value feature for multiple choice fields

    Much like other form controls, it would be great if we could select a default value for the multiple choice control (checkboxes).

    I have a use case where I'd like to be able to use multiple choice control responses in the initial form to pre-populate a multiple choice control in a subsequent approval form.
