  1. Image link in send an email

    Please add the ability to add an image link when drafting the email body of send the email. We have a need to incorporate into the email signature the organisation's Logo and link to the organisation's web site but the functionality is not there on Nintex Workflow Cloud whilst Nintex Workflow O365 and On Premise has this ability

  2. Pause/wait until

    We have the need for an action in NWC that is present in Office365 and SharePoint. "Wait until" where we can insert a date.

    Hi Arne,

    I need to ask a few questions about what you’re trying to achieve:

    Is this a specific date that you will configure into the workflow directly (e.g. “I want to wait until April 1st”)?

    If not, will you calculate a date in the future, based on the current date (e.g. I want to wait for 7 days from this action completion point)?
    If this is the scenario you are trying to achieve, then “Pause for duration” will be the action you’re looking for. This will let you configure a relative duration to pause for.

    If yes, how far in advance will that specific date be? Once that date lapses, will you update the workflow to another date in the future?
    If you have a specific date in mind, then you will have to add 1 more action into your workflow – “Find interval between dates”. By using the…

  3. Ability to change/customize the sender email address in Nintex Workflow Cloud.

    When you send an email in Nintex Workflow Cloud, all the emails will be delivered by <nintex@workflowcloud.com> and we are looking to change this email with one of our own email addresses/domains < noreply@mydomain.com>.

  4. Debugging assistance: Capture JSON after a task or log all variables action

    When a task is completed it would be handy to capture the JSON for debugging purposes. Alternatively if there was an action that logged all variables and their values, that would be useful too. It's possible to log all variables now but that means updating the action each time a new variable is created. If there was a "log all" action or something similar to the verbose logging that is available with Nintex on-prem this would help with debugging.

    Hey Chris,

    Noted. We do have the verbose logging feature that you mentioned in the backlog.

    As for capturing the JSON of the tasks we’ll need to look into that in further detail on how we would do that.

  5. 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.

  7. Delineate Production and Development Workflow Publishing Permissions

    When configuring roles and user permissions there should be a way to configure a user's permission so that they can only publish development workflows vs. being able to publish both development and production workflows.

  9. 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 .

  10. Why no Auto Save??

    I lost a more than a day of work, hours!
    and no automatic save feature....

    This alone will cause me not to go with Nintex as a solution. I can't afford this.
    I've testes over 8 solutions this month, and all offer auto save.
    The mighty Nintex does not....

  11. Show where variables are used in workflow

    Within the variable menu you should be able to see where a variable is being used (what actions) within the workflow.

    If you need to find and replace a variable within the workflow designer (such as needing to change a variable's type), when working with large workflows it is hard to find where the variables are being used, but you cannot update/remove the variable until all instances are removed from existing actions.

  12. Add actionable message to task email

    There needs to be an option to add lazy approval actionable message to emails generated from tasks. One of the biggest drawbacks that is keeping me from switching from O365 to Cloud, is that option.

    With current cloud lazy approval, user has to reply to email with response. With O365 actionable message, the user can click simply click on a response button. Having the user reply to an email, adds a layer of complexity that will allow for errors and delayed processes.

  15. 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…

    Hi Will,

    Based on what you’re trying to achieve, it sounds like “delegation” would be the best solution; If the task is assigned to a user/invalid email address, delegate the task to a new user/valid email address.

    This request has been added to the product backlog. Thanks for your feedback!

  16. Have the ability to restart the workflow from within a workflow instance

    Would like to restart the workflow from within a workflow instance, so it does not need to be terminated and restarted from the beginning.

  17. sql execute a query - capture error option

    In NWC SQL execute a query action there is currently no error handling mechanism.

    If there is a network connectivity issue to the SQL connection the action and the workflow is failing.

    It would be good to add in the ability to capture errors and store that the error has occurred in a boolean variable so we can build conditional logic in the workflow to gracefully handle the issue and not lose the data from the nintex start form.
    (In my example I'm using an INSERT SQL query)

    This could be similar to the Nintex workflow for sharepoint on premise…

  19. 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.
