  1. SharePoint Online Retrieve an item - Get the direct Item URL in the resulting object

    In the resulting object of a Retrieve an item action, there no "Item URL" property. It's possible to recreate it with the rest of the properties but it leads to more character string actions (possible to use a component workflow for that though).

  2. 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…

  3. Nested choice fields or the ability to sort other choice fields based on earlier choices

    It would be nice to have the ability to use nested/sub choice fields or the ability to filter other choice fields based on earlier choices. For example, I choose A on choice #1. So because of that, choice #2 filters what is available because of a choice selection. Or display certain choice fields based on what is selected from choice #1. I can accomplish the latter with rules but this is painful if you need many sub choices based on the first choice.

    Thanks for the feedback and to let you know we are always evaluating and evolving the layouts and designs across the product.

    Today you filtering is supporting and if you use them with tags this will assist with categorisation.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Just some clarifying questions – is the need to preview and print the form submission extending beyond the time of the initial submission. i.e. able to come back in x number of days and be able to view the form submission?

  7. Return data lookup value as object

    I have several areas in my forms where I need a data lookup field on my form to return more than one value from the SharePoint list item that is selected.
    For example, my Location data lookup field needs to save the location as the value and the label. BUT I also need to save the corresponding Abbreviation (another column in that SP source list) for that location into a different field so that I can use that Abbreviation in a filter on the form.

    I have seen Euan's helpful video on a work around but that work around won't…

  8. Create Object Variables in designer and from the Form

    It would be good if that would be possible. Especially in relation to to Xtensions. You could group a set variables to an object in WF designer or form designer. Also, you could create arrays of complex types then.

    If an API requires an array of objects or other arrays as property its not possible to integrate it through a Xtension.

    For us thats a annoying limitation, cause trivial request are not possible by custom connectors.

  9. Embed an authenticated NWC form in SharePoint iframe

    Currently you can embed a non-authenticated NWC form in SharePoint very nicely, however you are unable to embed an authenticated one. My tenant uses Azure AD SSO for NWC so in theory pass through auth should work pretty seamlessly. This would be extremely helpful!

  10. Dynamic dropdown options

    Make the dropdown field options able to be determined by rules.

    IF variable1 = 'x' THEN dropdown options = 'a,b,c'
    IF variable1 = 'y' THEN dropdown options = 'd,e,f'

    etc.

  13. Ability to print all pages from browser

    For responsive forms created in NWC it would be beneficial for users/customers to have the ability to print forms to PDF or physically via the browser. Currently when you print a form in the browser by default it only prints 1 page instead of the whole form.

  14. Default connector availability

    Please make new connectors disabled by default and let administrators know new features are connectors are available somehow, or give us an option to toggle off as the default in the options somewhere. Controlled rollout of these connectors is desired, especially when they are for other cloud services that are not organizationally approved.

  16. Projects + Project-specific permissions

    As NWC works at present, everything is in large, global lists. Workflows, Connections and Data Sources show everything. Permissions are at one top-tier level in the tenant (with the additional layer of granting ownership to individual workflows). While this works if the team using NWC is just a small set of developers in IT, I think going forward many users would like to use NWC as more of a hub they can manage their Nintex projects (and complete their tasks/forms*) from - the current structure doesn’t allow for something like this.

  17. More flexibility with buttons - especially a Cancel button

    I wish NWC had either a default Cancel button or the ability to add one. I have a couple of forms that I'm redesigning in NWC and they are essentially worksheets that have no need for a workflow - they just help the user make a determination. It would be nice if the user could click a 'Cancel' button to clear out the form and start over.

    Alternately it would be nice to be able to hide the 'Submit' button based on a case like this, or to use rules to hide it based on form data.

  18. import workflows with missing custom actions

    ref:00D90q6Cb.5002v2sALNR:ref

    If a workflow contains a custom action from another environment, and then the workflow is imported into another environment, without that custom action. The import will fail.

    Please implement a mechanism to cope with missing actions, so that the workflow can be imported in and give the end user the option to remove the incompatible action.

  19. Add time to the search for instances

    Very difficult to find workflow instances especially when feeding a batch in at once using RPA. Adding functionality such as the ability to search both date and time would save hours and hours of work.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    I’m keen to understand the use case a little better – are you using an RPA Botflow against the instance listing page?

    What’s the reason that a batch of instances are being fed to RPA?

  20. Style manager or global form style settings

    I'm creating a number of new workflows with start forms and task forms.
    Having to redo the style settings with our corporate colours is becoming quite onerous every time a new form is created.

    Could we have the ability in the NWC settings to add a custom style or somehow modify the style settings at a tenant wide level?

    This would be a big time saver for the development of new forms.
