  1. Regional Data Centres with the ability to create data regions

    Ability to have NWC run in multiple data centres. Starting with one to choose depending on my preferred location, followed by the ability to create different data regions. Handy for multinational organisations that want to ensure data is hosted where their regional subsidiary is located.

  2. Connector for Microsoft Teams

    More and more people are now using Microsoft Teams! It would be very helpful if you could make a connector that could do all or some of the following things:
    - Post to a channel (Message and Card)
    - Send a chat message (Message and Card)
    - Create/Modify/Delete a Team
    - Create/Modify/Delete a Channel

  3. Support non-OK status-code in xtensions

    Currently if a xtension responds with a code other than 2xx the call is considered to be a failure.

    However many APIs legitimately return a status-code other than 2xx. For example if you query a service and no results are found, many APIs return 404 - "Not Found". This is a valid response and I would like to react on this response within the workflow. Many times this would result in either creating a new record (if a query returns 404) or updating an existing record (if a query returns 200).

  4. Having access to initiator display name and email address

    It would be so great to have access to Initiator display name and Initiator email address in context variables when the workflow is started by an authenticated user. For example, when someone submit an NWC start form from Nintex mobile app, as the user is authenticated, I could then assign him/her a task and/or send him/her an email.

  5. 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....

  7. Search instance details for text.

    I'd like to be able to search through instance details for text. If I have 50 workflows kick off on a Box - New File upload start event (All with the same workflow name), and I want to find a specific one, it's currently impossible without just opening each one. If I log the filename or such, and I could search for the correct instance, that would be super useful. Thank you.

  8. Versioning and Collaboration

    When working on a workflow with someone else, it would be great if editing was locked if someone else had it opened in edit.. Also the ability to place notes on Publish / Save with Workflow version number.

  9. Ability to Delete Instances

    Ability to delete instances. Without the ability to delete instances the API pulls all instances including all of the test instances which is just added noise to our reports.

    Hi Clint,

    Thanks for the suggestion! I will add this suggestion into the backlog for review.

    In the mean time – are you able to publish your workflow with “Test” in the name, and only when it’s Production ready, republish as new workflow? That way your query only needs to refer to the instances against the new workflow.
    Regards,
    Kate

  10. 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.

  11. Secured forms on NWC for item submission + tasks

    All the forms (Items + tasks) are now fully public. Everyone who has access to the link can act on it. How can you be sure that your task is not going to be answered by someone who shouldn't have access to it ? You can't. So, how do you secure your workflow? You can't.

    Can we have a way to secure every kind of forms? like a SalesForce / Google/Microsoft "passeport"? and the ability to only allow a list of users (or using wild searches : *@mydomain.com) to connect to this form!

  12. 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.

  13. Display context in modal dialogs

    When deleting a workflow or connection it would be helpful to display the actual name of the element to be deleted in the modal dialog. I like the warning, prior to deleting something - but in order to avoid accidental deletion I would appreciate to see the name of the item being deleted.

  14. Task delegation

    It could be useful to have delegation concept also for tasks in NWC, it should be done through the task dashboard or through API.

    Delegation could be done by an administrator or by the assignee (it should be possible to disable this capability for the task assignee, like in on-prem version of Nintex Workflow)

  15. 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

  16. 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.

  17. Please add an Exchange Online connector

  18. 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.

  19. Add Oracle Connector to Nintex Workflow Cloud

    Will you please add an Oracle Connector to Nintex Workflow Cloud that would permit workflows to log in to an Oracle database as a user and perform tasks that the user is authorized to perform (e.g., Create, Read, Update, Delete, Select) operations? Thank you.
