  1. 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.
    * really loving the addition of the My Nintex…

  2. File Uploads / Signatures in Repeating Sections

    Ability to add file upload and signature controls to repeating sections. We use this extensively in expense systems (uploading receipts per line item) or in approval workflows (approval processes), plus many other use cases.

  3. Box Get Folders - Change Sort Order

    When getting folders from Box, we are looping through them and due to the number of folders, the instance is taking over 10 mins at times.
    If we had the ability to loop through folders in descending order rather than ascending, it will move the queue much faster.
    Thanks

    Thank you for providing the feedback on the Box – Get Folder action.

    The initial request is primarily due to slow workflows. Sorting folders is of course an option, but would filtering the folders (to get a smaller resultset) also be a suitable solution?

    Kind regards,
    Ruben d’Arco

  4. Nintex Cloud Instances - Export Feature

    Would be awesome to have a select option "Select All" export to CSV button. At the moment I'm having to open a failed instance in a new tab (Because if you click back on normal window you'll have to manually scroll back down to where you were) one by one at the "Instance start data" and pasting it into an Excel spreadsheet to get a better picture of why it failed.

  5. Retrieve day of the week from date/datetime variables

    I would like to be able to take a date variable and find out the day of the week (Mon, Tue, etc.) There are times where I want to take action based on day of the week, but have no ability to do that right now.

  6. Generate PDF with PDF Security Applied

    Nintex o365 Document Generation action missing standard functionality. After the PDF file is generated and sent to the end user, the user who receives this PDF file can actually make changes to the file using a PDF editor tool. The ability to secure a PDF to only be viewed and printed using a password or completely locked down from changing before sending out to the end user.

    We use a workflow in a critical financial system and we would like to have this feature added. It could either be password or certificate security, but just need the ability to prevent…

  7. 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.

    Thanks for your suggestion. I have updated the idea to be specific to ‘Choice – multiple’.

    This has been added to the backlog. If this changes, I will update the status of this idea.

  9. Be able to print to PDF for all submitted form tasks

    Would be great to be able to print PDFs of all submitted form tasks in the Instance tab. We can already do this for Instance Start Data, but we have subsequent approval forms we'd like to print to PDF.

  11. Add a List View control in Form Designer - Nintex Workflow Cloud

    I'm having a requirement that I need to show a "list" of items inside the Nintex Form and for each item I need to give additional upload button, download button and a "Yes/No" field.
    Currently, there is no solution for displaying a list from SharePoint (or from other databases) inside Nintex Form.
    It'll be so helpful if you add a "List View" control in the Form Designer or please suggest me any alternative solution.

    Regards,
    Anirudh

    Thank you for your input Anirudh.  Would you also expand on use case?  Why the download and upload?  What is the participant trying to accomplish with this form?  


    We like to open this up for voting as well.

  12. Get SmartSheet Row by Cell Value

    As discussed on this forum page (https://community.nintex.com/t5/Nintex-Workflow-Cloud-Forum/NWC-and-Smartsheet/m-p/215571) I'd really like to be able to get a Smartsheet row based on a cell value.

    If not that, I'd like to at least call by row number (rather than row ID) so that I can engage the looping mechanism discussed on the forum.

    Thanks!

  13. File variable support in Nintex Gateway for SQL On-premises

    The Nintex gateway has been updated to include support for SQL On-premises.
    There is a current data type limitation where file variables in a NWC workflow are not supported to binary, image, varbinary datatype fields.
    It would be great to be able to capture an attachment to an NWC form and save it into an on-premise SQL table in a varbinary field.

  14. Increase font contrast in pre-filled/read-only controls

    Grey font used in pre-filled/read-only form controls is not dark enough relative to the grey background shading. Very difficult to focus/read.

  16. 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.

  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. 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.

  19. Populate a list box from Azure

    I would like to be able to populate a drop-down list on a form using a SQL query. Drop-down lists are frequently not static and I would prefer to not edit the form every time a new entry is required.
