  1. Allow pipe and comma in Choice options

    We frequently have the need to include comma ( , ) and pipe ( | ) characters in our choice options. Is it possible to allow those characters? For example, we have a product whose name is "REALTY|share" and have some forms with choice options along the lines of "Yes, please contact me immediately!"

    • SharePoint Online for Document Generation Action

      It would be really nice to have the option of SharePoint Online for the DocGen Action.

      On the Office 365 side only being able to use OneDrive for DocGen is very limiting. We need to be able to use DocGen from SharePoint Online as well. This allows us to create anonymous forms for O365 or for example if I am working within a Sales Process, I would want to get my DocGen Template from my Sales SharePoint Online Site and then Store it back there and/or Salesforce.

        Hi Ben,

        Thanks for your feedback! I’ve added SharePoint Online for Document Generation into our backlog. I’ll update this ticket as we progress this feature through.
        Thanks,
        Kate

      • put Header fields in triggering conditons for Rule Builder

        Header fields should be choices for the "When " condition on the Rule builder, to allow for easier conditionals.
        Example:
        When [header field] Visible (yes)
        Then [another question or header field] Visible (no)

        • The ablity to rerun a workflow, especially one that starts from a form

          I had a workflow that failed from a form start and had no way to restart the workflow or retrieve the information that had been entered into the form. Once I fixed the error in my connections, I couldn't rerun it. I also couldn't access the initial information in the form. The data the user had entered is lost and I can't track down any information about what was submitted.

          • Secure Datagateway to on-premises LOB system

            As pr. now if we need to connect to on-premises LOB data from O365 workflow/form or Workflow Cloud, we need to make the SQL server/LOB system available through internet. For many this is not an option. Please consider a solution like Microsofts Datagateway for Flow and PowerApps. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/gateway-reference

            • Group Workflows

              Workflow Grouping. .In a number of situations, a process is a number of workflows. It would be great these workflow could be grouped so they stay together on the Workflow listings page.

              • No Variables Call Out

                Within the Start Event: Nintex configuration window (or any forms dialog), the fact that there are no variables should be called out initially. This helps imply that there *can be* variables associated with the form.

                  • The ability to open and close a Azure VPN tunnel

                    Using something like https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/services/vpn-gateway/ and other similar services.

                    Being able to securely connect to On-Premise data thru an on-demand VPN tunnel would provide a cost effective way to connect to this data rather than having to establish an always on VPN tunnel

                          This will then give you the ability to set a scheduled workflow to clean up the \temp folder.

                                  • Have more than 4 controls across in design

                                    When placing fields and I have 4 controls, but I may need to change some out but can't due to only having 4. EG>>

                                    City, Country, State, Zip Code
                                    If country equals Australia I want the drop down with Australian states
                                    If the country equals USA I want a drop down that only has USA states, But I can't because I can't design the form to include all the different State fields I require for my rules.

                                    • Connection Error After Exiting Connection Creation

                                      Currently when you cancel creating a new connection from within the Connections Manager, there is always a message that there was a connection error: "An error has occurred with creating your connection. Please try again later."

                                      While the connection was not created, there also was not really an error, so this messaging should probably be updated to reflect what actually happened.

                                      • NWC SQL Queries - retrieve multiple columns

                                        The SQL connectors allow a designer to select a single column for select queries. Many times we wish to select multiple columns. Can these actions be modified so we can add an unlimited number of columns?

                                        • support of complex math function

                                          support more complex methods of math operations, e.g.
                                          (varible1 * variable2) / variable3
                                          sum(var1, var2, var3, var4)
                                          other functions such as product(), mod(), power(), sqrt(), etc.
