  1. Branch by value support for numbers

    Currently the "branch by value" action only allows to branch by "text" values. I would be great to also support "number" values.

    • Connecting Single Sign on Connector with O365 MFA enabled

      Hi Not sure if it's a bug or a feature that hasn't been implemented.
      When I was connecting up single sign-on it wouldn't connect, It was just erroring out. Like as if Nintex didn't know how to pop up (enter TXT code) the MFA side of things only popped up the password box then left hanging. then failed to connect. As soon as I turned off MFA. Password box popped up and successfully connected.. I don't know what else might not work because MFA accounts are enabled.(I am a global admin in O365 and Admin in Nintex Cloud)

          Hi Andre,

          In case you haven’t seen the release notes, Collection operations action “Check if item exists in collection” has now been updated to be able to return the index when a value-match has been found.

          To extract the highest value in a collection, and then find its counterpart in a secondary collection:
          Sort items in the first collection, get the highest value
          Check if item exists in the original collection to get the Index
          Get item to pull the same Index from your secondary collection

          Please let me know if you have any further questions,
          Kate

        • Regex Replace

          A "Replace" option should be available in the "Regular Expression" action. Now only "Check match", "Split" and "Extract" are available. Why is that? It makes it impossible to replace "forbidden" characters in a form before submitting. The available rules does not help either…

          • Return Box File Id and Folder Id Variables

            For the Box connect, the Id's for all of the objects (Files & Folders) is extreeeeemely important to return as variables. For instance, I can create an Xtension using Box's OpenAPI/Swagger spec, but I cant do anything with because all of the APIs require the fileId and folderIds.

              • Variable type conversion, numeric value truncation and groups

                Hi all,

                I recently hit a wall with a project involving Doc Gen and Workflow Cloud. I managed to work my way through it but a lot of what I was trying to get working felt like options that could be basic actions within the designer.

                I was working with registration and attendance values for an event, these get entered as integer values into a form that then triggers the workflow. As I wanted % turnout I did the standard divide then multiplication calculations but the resulting value is returned as a 0. I quickly realised this was because I…

                  • The ability to get an email report if a workflow fails for any reason

                    One of my connections with SharePoint had failed and I wasn't aware that the workflow wasn't working because I wasn't looking at the NWC dashboard and I don't check in on it daily. It would be great to be notified if a workflow had failed.

                    • The ability to add a hyperlink on the form

                      We want to be able to include a link on the form that says something to the effect of "click here for more information" but can't find a way to include the link. Being able to include a link in a header field would make this possible.

                      • Longer text fields for instructions

                        The header field limits the amount of text and we have a need for a paragraph at the top and bottom of the form. We were able to workaround by putting in multiple headers, but it doesn't look quite right. We really want a longer text box area to type as much as we want.

                        • Create hyperlink in start form

                          It would be nice to be able to add clickable links from a form text box. This would need to be accomplished via form on load rule, field title, and/or field description.

                              Access to NWC should support the capability of ADFS/Azure SAML SSO with user provisioning.

                                  Hi Glenda,

                                  With the launch of Forms based tasks in Assign a task, you can easily include remarks/comments from the approving person using a form.

                                  If you are looking for someone to approve a task and add a remark, or simply looking for a comment without the need for a decision:
                                  - Drag an ‘Assign a task’ action onto the designer
                                  - Select ‘Form based’
                                  - Enable/disable ‘Multiple outcomes’ based on whether a decision needs to be made
                                  - Click on ‘Design Form’
                                  - Drag on a form control to capture remarks
                                  - This form control will now be available for use as a Variable in your workflow, where the captured response will be the Variable value.

                                • 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.

                                    • REST endpoints for external system to query Nintex Workflow Cloud

                                      e.g.
                                      REST endpoint to get list of workflow task
                                      REST api to approve or update a workflow task
                                      support of REST api is important when external systems needs to integrates with NWC.

                                      e.g. external system calls external start workflow, returning the workflow instance id. External system calls api with instance id to get the workflow status, etc.

                                      • Add users to tenant with different email domains.

                                        Can you tell me if their is a workaround to adding users that have a slightly different email domain.

                                        For global companies, such as Keller Foundations, they have similar but different domains depending on the region, and having to create multiple tenants in order to add users is not very manageable.

                                          Hi Bingham,

                                          Just an update to this ticket – We have made some changes to the single-email-domain policy.
                                          Tenants can now request multiple domains, but the NWC tenant must be federated. Contact support@nintex.com if you’d like to request multiple email domains to be associated to the tenant.
                                          Regards,
                                          Kate

                                        • Allow comparison between Integer variables and decimals

                                          If I define two variables, X (as Integer) and Y (as Decimal) I should be able to perform basic math comparisons between them. But NWC does not allow these variables to be compared in a Condition action.
