Auto-save workflow design
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....
Thank you very much for posting your feedback. At this time, we will not be adding this request to the near-term backlog, as we are focused on other priorities. However, we reevaluate requests every quarter and will reach out if priorities change. Please keep the feedback coming as it is critical for our longer-term planning.

Having worked on a lot of customer workflows in NWC, one of my biggest pain point is being pulled away to something else, only to come back and find out my session has expired and I've lost my work (I do try to save regularly and especially if I am getting pulled away), or the browser/computer has an issue. Autosaving is standard now, and it would be great to see it in NWC.
I think version the autosaves like x.x.1 would best, so:
1.0.0 (publish 1, save 0, autosave 0)
4.2.3 (publish 4, save 2, autosave 3)
I would have these collapsed by default with an arrow next to the manual save version to expand (as they will only have timestamps and no version comments).
I think even if it only autosaved every 5 minutes (and especially before a session expiry) and just kept one copy of 'these are your changes since your last manual save' rather than making many versions (though this flexibility would be nice) that would work well.
autosave function for workflows would be FANTASTIC
I can understand your frustration of losing so many hours of work! We do have the auto-save feature in the product backlog, but is yet to be prioritized.
For added context, did you lose your workflow design due to navigating away without first manually-saving or did your session time out?
On a separate note, what other process automation solutions are you also trialing? Do you find that they all include the capabilities that you require?
Please let me know if there's anything else I can assist you with,
