  1. In App help pages

    It would be really helpful, and save support calls, if the help link within the individual actions within Workflow designer linked to useful resources..

    For example : Wait for Field Change

    Current help link (useless) https://help.nintex.com/en-US/Office365/Designer/Actions/WaitforEventinListItem.htm?cshid=1128

    2 links provided by support desk, (that I could'nt find, really helpful )

  2. 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.

    Thanks for you input.  So that we are clear on the ask, is the attached page, the page you like to customize.  If yes, what would be your priority list in customization capability? (i.e. 1. Text, 2.Bold, 3.Bullets, 4.Text justification, etc)

  4. More collaborative designer space

    It would be great to have a more collaborative designer space within NWC, where multiple individuals could work within the same workflow at the same time and see in real-time, changes someone else makes.

    Think Google Sheets or Google Docs. Not critical to have, but would be a convenient capability.

  5. SQL Request Control for NWC Forms and Workflows

    In Nintex for SharePoint On-Prem versions, there was a Form SQL Request control. This control allowed you to query a table or view, and to Execute a SQL query, or run a stored procedure. If you selected a Query type of SQL, you were presented with a place to write your own SQL query.

    In NWC, when creating a data source, there is no option to execute a SQL query or stored procedure.

    For the NWC form designer, there is no control that allows you to Write or Execute a SQL query.

    And in the NWC workflow designer, none of…

  6. Add claim task option to multi-user tasks

    With the multi-user task, please add an ability for a user to claim the task so the other users do not need to action it.

  7. Add Get and Set Metadata actions for folders in Box.com

    Please add actions to the Box group that allows you to Get Folder Metadata and Set Folder metadata. We can do it for files but we cannot do it for folders without building a custom Xtension.

  8. Add Date Completed to the filter options for instances

    Please add Date Completed to the list of filter options on the instances tab. It is hard to find failed instances of long running workflows when the only filter option is started date. Please make Date Completed a filter option.

  9. Make all fields in the Instances tab sortable.

    When viewing the Instances tab we cannot sort by the various fields displayed on the page. Please enable sorting for all fields (Instance name, Workflow name, Status, Date initiated, Date completed).

  10. Allow setting of default value(s) for a Person Control in a Task Form, or allow the dynamic setting of Person Control values by Form Rule.

    Allow setting of default value(s) for a Person Control in a Task Form, or allow the dynamic setting of Person Control values by Form Rule. This would be useful in cases where the Task performer needs to adjust an existing list of people. Unfortunately the old trick of using a Form Rule doesn't work here because the Value of the Person control is not available to set. Nintex Support (Case #00430175) confirms that this functionality does not yet exist and there is no current workaround.

  11. Do not crash the workflow when a member cannot be removed from a SharePoint Group

    Please do not crash my workflow in the action "Remove user from a SharePoint Group".
    It is absolutely wonderful that you return an object that tells me if the removal was successful or not. That is exactly how it should be for every action.
    BUT (crying sounds in the background) still the workflow crashes if the user cannot be found! See screenshot.
    Please please never let workflows fail for things like this. I am sure you're going to fix this... ;-)

  12. Do not crash the workflow when a member cannot be added to a team in MS Teams

    When I add a member to a team in MS Teams and it cannot be added for whatever reason currently the workflow bluntly crashes.
    Please don't do that to us ;-) That is sooo 2020.
    Can you please return an object that tells me if it was successful or not?

    This is not just the case for this MS Teams connector action but it still happens in more actions. Golden rule is to never ever crash a workflow for such a reason but always return a 'success' object. Thanks!

  13. Decimal and currency form controls - specify field format

    A lot of our European form users are complaining on the Decimal and Currency fields not allowing comma as a decimal separator (the form control completely blocks entering anything but numbers and dot).

    This escalates quickly from a UX issue to a process error issue when someone submits a x100 value in the field (it's really easy to not notice the comma being 'eaten' by the field, especially for users of the numeric part of standard keyboards).

    It would help greatly if we could set cultureInfo or field format for value parsing on the decimal and currency fields.

    Thank you for your feeback and we can certainly understand the ask.  We are in the very early stages of gathering market data and feedback, like yours. and planning to address within our roadmap.

  14. Automatically place cursor in search box after clicking the X to clear the search box

    Automatically place cursor in search box after clicking the X to clear the search box. This applies to the workflow and forms designers, in all search boxes.

  15. 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).

  16. Nintex mobile : Publish a workflow for a restricted circle of people.

    in my company, we have a lot of workflows published in production with built-in nintex forms.

    We need to group forms by permissions so that only specific people to access them.

    For example, let's say we have HR forms, IT forms, and FINANCIAL forms. we want to publish the HR forms for HR users, IT for IT people and FINANCIAL for the accountants.

    I've tried playing around with the permissions field, but it doesn't seem to impact the mobile app.

    Please develop this feature

  17. Highlight custom actions in need of refresh after update

    When an Xtension is updated, the only way to refresh the actions within the workflows (as per the documentation) is to delete them, drag a new copy and reconfigure.
    We get that this is needed for not breaking existing workflows, but what is sorely lacking is the ability to locate them first.

    What would vastly help with this process is one or multiple of:
    A. From the Xtensions section, find workflows (at least prod published or all with visible status) that utilize actions from this Xtension - to be able to know where to look for what needs to be…

  18. 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.

  19. Add support for Excel as a data source in OneDrive via graph API

    Add support for the OneDrive document interaction graph API, specifically for excel documents as an option to add support for excel as a data source.

    currently the only options are to use a 3rd party service to convert to a json at cost or use google sheets.

    if you do not wish to use either of these services you are stuck not being able to access data from csv/xlsx files.

  20. Allow users within a security group to access saved "draft" forms by others in the group.

    We have forms that are date sensitive so they cannot be submitted until a specific date. If the employee is out for vacation or sick, another employee must re-enter the form. We want to be able to allow another team member to submit the form on the correct date. We would also use it to prepare for days when the work volume may be heavy to help with efficiency.
