  1. Allow Legacy form fields in Generate Document action.

    Allow Document Generation on Microsoft Word 'Legacy' form fields.

    Currenlty it seems NWC will only map completing tags on the standard form fields, not 'Legacy' form fields. It's a shame as Legacy form fields are more powerful and we can embed calculations format types and constraints. Would be great if you guys could add this compatibility in the future.

    Hi Grant,


    Thank you for your feedback on the Generate Document action. At this time, we have no plans to add functionality to support legacy form fields in older versions of MSWord. 

    Please keep the feedback coming as it is critical for our longer-term planning.


    Regards,

  2. In Designer convert Assign a Task to a Assign a Task to Multiple Users

    Often times the initial requirements of workflow are to assign a task to one person, but often for testing purposes and discovery lead to a task that has been initially designed as a single user task that now needs to be a multiple user task. It would be great to easily convert the existing single user task into a multiple person task. This would save a lot of reconfiguration time especially if variables are used further down the workflow. It would also be value added for testing purposes.

  3. Be able to save a Workflow as a Template

    using the Center of excellence model, we would like to be able to provide users Templates to use that we build and test and then save to be used by user in the future but also export or share to other tenants within our license environment

  4. Assign a task without email notification

    Give the option to assign a task without emailing the assignee(s).
    With the addition of my nintex, some users are already asking for the option to just monitor their tasks in there on a daily basis rather than receive emails for each task.

    If multiple users are assigned it would be good to chose who gets the email and who doesnt. This would be particularly useful to send a notification to a shared inbox and allow users of that inbox (also assignees) to complete the task as their users.

    Thanks for the idea for which we’ve already logged in our backlog.

    Currently we have other near term priorities however we reevaluate requests every quarter and will reach out if priorities change.

  5. Assign DocuSign access codes in a workflow

    It would be great if we could assign an access code for a DocuSign Envelope within a nintex form.

    Thanks for your request to enhance the DocuSign connector to support Access codes.

    At this time, we will not be adding this to the near-term backlog, as we are focused on other important features across Nintex Workflow Cloud. 


    Please keep the feedback coming as it is critical for our longer-term planning.

  6. Ability to add Auto-place (anchor tagging) to documents for Docusign

    When sending a document for signature it would be good to be able to add auto-place anchors to the document (as can be done in K2) so that placeholders are added for signature, names, dates etc when the user signs the document.

    Thank you for your feedback. This looks like a request for the DocuSign service to understand dynamic signature tags.  Nintex does not have a way to control that and it would have to be handled by DocuSign.  In the mean time there might be alternative solutions via Nintex AssignSign.  To learn more about AssureSign click here or contact your Nintex Account Manager. 

  7. Energie und Umwelt - Nicht bei jedem Vorhaben Relevant, und Umbenennung des Dokumentes im Workflow

    1. Was mache ich, wenn mein Vorhaben keine Checkliste für Energie und Umwelt benötigt? Ich benötige eine Kostenfreigabe für einen externen Dienstleister und habe jetzt einfach ein Liste mit nur "Nein" hochgeladen und einer Anmerkung, dass das Dokument keine Relevanz hat für meine Vorhaben
    2. Evtl. Umbenennung bei des Abfragedokumentes für Energie und Umwelt auf den Namen des Dokumentes im Kompass:

  8. Orientation Time Card Update

    I’m requesting an update to the orientation time card regarding the “Number of Attendees” drop down. Currently, it only goes to seven. I would like that to be increased to 20. I have recruiters that have opportunities to host up to 20 New Hires at one orientation, and the limitation on the dropdown requires them to complete three of these forms. The redundancy can be eliminated via the increase of attendee numbers with the drop down.

  9. Ability to change/customize the sender email address in Nintex Workflow Cloud.

    When you send an email in Nintex Workflow Cloud, all the emails will be delivered by nintex@workflowcloud.com and we are looking to change this email with one of our own email addresses/domains < noreply@mydomain.com>.

    Thank you very much for your feedback, we’ve had many requests for this capability however Nintex will always require its own managed email service to process incoming express approval responses as well as ensuring all emails are reliably delivered.

    Please note that you can already specify the senders display name however the actual from address will always be from workflowcloud.com

    At this stage we are passing on this particular idea as it does not align with the core product mission and roadmap. We welcome additional ideas and feedback from you in the future.

  10. Find and remove unused variables

    Currently you have to go to each variable, click "Show Details" and of the trash can is not disabled, you know it's not used and can be deleted.
    It will be great to just show a list of unused variables with check-boxes to choose which to delete or a delete all button

    Thank you very much for posting your feedback on managing variables for our review. At this time, we will not be adding this request to the near-term backlog, as we are focused on other maintenance capabilities in other area such as Connectors, etc. However, we reevaluate requests every quarter and will reach out if priorities change.

  11. Trigger Workflow Start from another workflows Failed Instance

    I would love to be able to trigger a separate workflow instance upon a Failed INstance to a particular workflow. I would see it as a setting option for Failed Workflow instances. I know that you can setup an alert to someone for a failed instance, which is a win and it would be great if you could achieve or automate some additional things with a separate workflow.

    Tye, we have this one on our backlog however it's not currently a priority. 


    What might help in this scenario is a feature we a starting to look at is the ability to re-submit a failed workflow, won't solve all your problems but hopefully a start.. 

  12. Sorting numbers from smaller to larger, larger to smaller in a collection

    Current sort collection does not sort the numbers/integers in smaller to larger or larger to smaller. When I try to sort a collection in my workflow the result after sorting is something like this ["100.0", "112.0", "114.0", "127.0", "135.0", "148.0", "15.0", "40.0", "40.0", "42.0", "42.0", "42.0", "42.0", "42.0", "43.0", "44.0", "44.0", "44.0", "45.0", "45.0", "46.0", "46.0", "47.0", "47.0", "48.0", "52.0", "55.0", "57.0", "99.0"]

    I would be great if we can sort the numbers the way we did in Nintex office 365.

    Looking at the results, these values are being treated as "strings", and the sorting will behave differently.  Adjust the data query so it is stored as or returns Integers.  The data should appear like: [15.0, 40.0, 100.0, 112.0, 114.0] without the quotes for each value.

  13. Create New Item on SharePoint List Action to be created by end user not connection account

    When using the "Create New Item" workflow action to create a new line item on the relevant SharePoint List it would be helpful if it could create the item by the person who submitted the form for authenticated users (internal staff/users). This would allow you to set specific views on the SharePoint list for created by only so users can only see what they submitted.

  14. sql execute a query - capture error option

    In NWC SQL execute a query action there is currently no error handling mechanism.

    If there is a network connectivity issue to the SQL connection the action and the workflow is failing.

    It would be good to add in the ability to capture errors and store that the error has occurred in a boolean variable so we can build conditional logic in the workflow to gracefully handle the issue and not lose the data from the nintex start form.
    (In my example I'm using an INSERT SQL query)

    This could be similar to the Nintex workflow for sharepoint on premise…

    Even though this is set to not planned we certainly have it in our longer term roadmap and fully aware of the requirement. I know this won't fully solve the need here however we are currently planning on being able to re-submit a failed workflow and that way you wouldn't loose any of the submited data. 

  15. Scheduling a task

    When starting a workflow with scheduling a task it would be great if would could schedule to repeat by the day of the week also. Like the outlook tasks.

  16. Issue with Nintex Workflow Cloud - Multiple choice control collection variable

    Hi, I am having an issue in Nintex Workflow Cloud, where a multiple choice control on the form, is holding the entire form response in the associated collection variable - instead of just the two options allowed as per selection. This is an existing workflow and previous entries were working fine. Have tried creating a new control and variable but still the same issue. Please advise. Thanks

  17. Need to ability to see what exactly is written to a collection

    If i pull in user profile into a collection , I have no way of knowing what it is pulling. I need to be able to see into the collection (run a collection test) and then be able to parse out what i need.

    Hi Timothy,


    Thanks for the suggestion. If this in relation to the properties of the user profile or the actual values, there are alternative ways to get this.


    If properties - the output of the actions now return objects that do show the properties that are returned.


    If value - can leverage the Log to instance details and test workflow capability.


    We do have other ideas such as automatically displaying outputs / variable values when testing a workflow without implicitly adding the log to instance details.


    As of now, there are no plans to do anything more. If you have other suggestions or if I've understood the idea wrongly, please reach out.


    Thanks.

  18. 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....

  19. Retrieving Message header in assign a task action

    On the "assign a task" action, we can already retrieve the Message body, that would be great to also retrieve the message header.

    It may not be used in many cases but for some cases (we are facing one at the moment on a projetc), we would be able to retrieve the IP of the sender.
    There could be many other usages
