  2. Nintex Worklfow Cloud - Salesforce Actions (Get/Attach files) is saving documents into 'Notes and Attachments' section.

    Nintex Worklfow Cloud - Salesforce Actions (Get/Attach files) is saving documents into 'Notes and Attachments' section. It would be of more value to provide an option to save them to 'Files' section under a Salesforce Object, since 'Notes and Attachments' section is depreciating.

  3. 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.

  4. Add sorting to the SharePoint Query List action

    the SharePoint QUERY LIST action has no option to SORT the results like its ancestors in NW365 and NW2016. As there are no other sort actions or options this seems a real omission. (The SORT COLLECTION is very basic and not capable of sorting items in a collection).

  5. Exclude weekends from task assignment reminders and escalations

    Hi there, it would be great to be able to cater for business days only (exclude weekends), when configuring NWC task assignment reminders and escalations. Currently when specifying days as part of reminders and escalations there seems to be no easy way to exclude weekends. Thanks.

  6. 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…

    Thank you for your suggestion. We are currently looking into this feature.

    I will update this ticket when we have more to share.

  7. 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.

  8. Ability to Create Custom User Roles

    Ability to create new/custom User Roles within NWC. From a security perspective, ability for Designer to build workflows and create connections is a risk. Our org has the need for users to be able to create forms and workflows, but not create new connections.

    Apologies as we went quiet on this – it’s been a while as we had a few other priorities to work on.

    The plan now is that we will be able to solve for this via a new capability that we will be introducing in a form of a Table. The general idea is that the table will allow the persistence of data and will integrate with workflows providing operations like CRUDL and forms via data sources.

  10. Set Workflow Status

    An action that provides the ability to set a workflow status to a custom value and display that status on the instances dashboard.

  11. 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.

  12. Call a web service action with credential/token from existing connector

    Most of the REST API endpoints required to supply Authorization: Bearer as part of the Header, if a different version of the "call a web service" action is provided with the capability to make use of the Connector(s) in Nintex Workflow Cloud, that will open up the opportunity of all available endpoints of the external system to which we are integrating with.

    e.g. All the Actions of the Sharepoint online covers only few endpoints of the Sharepoint Online. The proposed version of "call a web service" will make the Sharepoint Connector to be used to access all the available Sharepoint…

    Hi KK, thanks for the suggestion. As we’ve recently released Nintex Xtensions, why not build a Connector using the Nintex Xtensions Framework?

    This makes the action much more reusable and easier to configure. Or is your request to do with something else?

    Thanks!

  13. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. The ability to save drafts with a name

    We are using forms as check-lists where the users will have to revisit forms over multiple days. The save draft allows us to do this - however, the users might have multiple drafts of the same form. Therefore we would love a simple feature that allows to save the draft with a name. This would make it easier for the user to find the correct draft instead of going through all of them.

  17. 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…

    The team have commenced working on Manual delegation. on top of assignees being able to delegate their own tasks, Business owners of a workflow will be able to review all instances in the Workflow tracker. Here, Business owners can view the Start event details, associated tasks, and be able to delegate.


    This should solve for the "typo in the email address" scenario:

    Business owner can see the Start form, identify an incorrect task, delegate to the correct email address/user. This user will be able to see the same task email body, with any additional delegation comments from the Business owner. If task assignees have the permission, they will be able to see the Start form in My Nintex.

  18. Web Accessibility Standards

    It will great to incorporate Web Accessibility Standards into the forms as this is a major requirements for government departments in the UK. Because these forms will be generally available over the Web, accessible forms by disabled people and the use of assistive technology is hugh within the Civil Service and with a large percentage of government departments using Nintex products, you'll be protecting your business post COVID-19.

  19. 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.
