  1. Additional Connection Details - Account information

    For your configured Connections - Ability to see which account was used for the connection.

    You can see this for some connectors that have basic authentication, but for an oauth connector you can't see this as the only information you configure is the name.

  2. Resend the task

    Hello,
    Just thinking if would be possible to add some option to resend the task to the assignee from the tasks menu.
    I often find my self emailing the link to the assignee in order to complete the task.

    Many thanks,
    Valentina

  3. 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…

  4. Email link to Saved Form NWC

    It would be fantastic if it was possible to configure an email to be sent with a link to a 'saved' form whenever the save button is utilised for an Authenticated Form.
    In our organisation the majority of users do not have access to MyNintex and thus despite all forms being authenticated, it is not possible to use the save functionality. Ideally this email would have the same functionality as the 'Assign a task' email.

  5. Add url or path condition to the SharePoint Online query a list action

    Right now it's impossible to query for a specific document without the use of ID.

    Unless you have the ID you are risking getting multiple results, for instance if the file name is not unique.

    Please add the use of Url in the condition for the SharePoint Online query a list action.

  6. Execute a SmartObject event - Support for Documents and Files (load)

    Would be great if we could load documents and files out of K2 Cloud SmartObjects into NWC for use in NWC actions such as upload file to Box or DropBox. Presently for example the load event for a SO Event brings back the record metadata but will exclude the document or file itself if the load event is called. There is no GetDocument method.

  7. Contributor Permission level with Workflow Variables created from NWC Automate Start menu

    I'll try to make this short winded. The problem or what I want to solve for is having dynamic text (variable) within an NWC workflow form that can change dynamically of something exterior of the Form/Workflow within a Label, Description, or potentially other where a user whom is not a workflow designer can contribute without changing anything or accessing the workflow itself. Let me explain further on the architecture...I'm hoping for a "Contributor" whom owns the process but does not need access to the workflow, think almost a permission level between a participant and designer, where they could potentially see…

  8. Ability to view & delete list item attachments in task form

    We need the ability to view and delete attachments that are attached to a SharePoint list item, from a task form.

    When approvers need to approve a form, they need to be able to see the attachments associated with the item. And if necessary, they may want to replace one of the existing attachments with a different attachment so they should be able to delete a specific attachment and then upload a new one.

  9. Customizable Dashboards

    It would be great to be able to fully customize a dashboard within Nintex. My team needs our workflows to reports on non-standard metrics (such as each instance's position on a Branch-By-Stage action item). To create a dashboard that can report on that information we have had to create a chain of four separate softwares to allow us to report information to SmartSheet and create a dashboard there.

    Some of the features we would like to see in a dashboard include:
    - reporting links to forms
    - reporting customized instance variables
    - creating summary visuals to roll up case numbers…

  10. 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…

  11. Start condition on dynamic date

    When setting up the start condition on an event from a 3rd party SaaS system, it is currently impossible to use a dynamic date value like 'Today' or 'Instance start date' as you cannot insert variables into the start condition.

  13. option to not capture instance data for privacy reasons

    When a workflow executes all data for the workflow variables are available in the workflow instance start data in the NWC dashboard.

    Some data that is captured on forms would include data that is personal private information (eg personal email, phone number, etc).

    Thus the NWC instance data becomes an additional data store to be considered for data breach implications.

    It would be great for either:
    1) a global option when publishing the workflow to not capture variable values in instance start data

    or

    2) an optional variable by variable to not be captured in instance start data.

  15. Add snippets functionality to NWC

    Following from a discussion on the community, it would be great to bring the Nintex for SharePoint functionality of snippets to NWC.

    Snippets allows for parts of a workflow to be saved to a gallery for easy re-use in other workflows.

  16. Add Nintex Services status page link to NWC Dashboard Settings area

    Can we add a link to the Nintex Services status page somewhere in the NWC dashboard? Possibly in the Settings tab so that it is quickly available to administrators while troubleshooting failed instances. It occurred to me while putting together our training material for the new NWC Practitioner course that users will have to dig for that page or know the link off the top of their heads.

  17. Enable Workflow failure notification for Development Workflows - NWC

    Enable Workflow failure notification alerts on Nintex Workflow Cloud. This would be really useful when multiple workflows are under development. Instead of reviewing the Instance details regularly, the alerts would make it easier to get an insight on failed workflow instances.

  18. My Nintex layout

    Different view options would be fantastic here in the "My Nintex" page. Currently a single column of forms doesn't look great and isn't very descriptive. There needs to be a description as to what the form is for, and even the ability to categorize the forms into "Departments" or "Functions" this could be hidden by default, or on hover. The form links would look great loaded as responsive tiles for example, or in multiple columns grouped by categories.

  19. Update File Name in Workflow

    Would be great if there was a way to update the name of a file that has been submitted via a Nintex Form within the workflow instance itself. This would make it much easier to associate files with other references provided within the form, such as a Title or Name.
