  2. Data Source Connector - SharePoint On-Premises

    There is a workflow connector in NWC for SharePoint On-Premises. However, this connector is unavailable for use when creating a data source. It would be great to have the ability to query a SharePoint Server list from an NWC form. The SharePoint Online and SQL On-Premises connectors are available for use in form data sources, but there is no SharePoint on-prem connector available. This is major form functionality that is holding us back from using NWC, rather than Nintex for SharePoint.

    Thanks for logging this. We've had the request a few times (outside of UserVoice). 


    We currently do not have this due to the use of nintex gateway for these connections, but we can add the functionality if need be. 


    Let's see how many votes come in over the next few months.


  3. How to pre-populate Repeating Rows from SharePoint Lists Items

    I managed to capture information from Nintex Workflow Cloud form and save it in SharePoint List. Now, I want to design a form for Updating or Editing a record based from the SP List. How can I auto populate repeating section based on Sharepoint List item values for my Update/Edit form?

  4. zoom out

    Hello Team,

    Will love to have the ability to zoom out a little more while working with huge workflows, to easily maneuver around the page.

    Thanks

  5. Allow the Microsoft Excel connector to work with SharePoint online libraries

    Currently the NWC Microsoft Excel connector is limited to only work with files stored in OneDrive.
    This needs to be an enterprise level connector that allows for excel files stored in SharePoint online document libraries.
    Please extend the capability of this connector to work with files in SharePoint online.

    Thanks for the feedback!


    For the initial version of the Excel connector, a choice was made to work with OneDrive. If there's more interest in working with SharePoint Online, then we would like to add that functionality to the Connector.


    A workaround that is possible at this time is to copy the file from SharePoint to OneDrive and work with that. We know this is not ideal, so please vote on this Idea if you find yourself implementing this workaround.

  6. Mass task interaction

    Allow users to mass interact with tasks on the Active tasks section.
    add the possibility to add columns to the active task view to get more details on the request.

  7. Create PDF Rule of Completed Form

    The ability from a form rule to create a PDF of the completed form.

    Often on submit customers want to save a copy of the completed form itself in PDF format to a document store for record keep purposes.

    Developers don't want to create a separate report for this purpose, a quick and dirty print to PDF that looks reasonably clean will tick the box for this requirement for auditability requirements.

    The document should then be made available within the workflow to save away accordingly in a workflow event.

  8. Security trim a form so only users who have permissions can access the form

    Capability to show hide forms according to whom business owner decides. Some forms should only be available for few users within the business/department and the process owner should be able to give remove access.

  9. unique list from azure ad field

    When we have Azure AD connected with NWC, one of the field we get is department with multiple duplicates in the option list as each department is corresponding to an employee. Is it possible to retrieve the unique values from the list instead of all of them?

  10. Forms - Multiple and Single Select Type New Option

    Ability to type text in the field if the option Is not available in the list.

    It is not available in either of the Fields - Multiple or Single Select.

    Also giving the drop-down option to multiple select, so the form looks cleaner and does not have several check boxes to select.

    Aware of these:
    1) Create a Text Short Field -> change Visible to NO

    2) In your dropdown, add a value called "Please select"

    3) Create a rule -> If drop down value is "Please Select" then Visible to yes for the text field and else visible to…

  11. Ability to be able to export workflow for permanent record.

    With Nintex for Sharepoint we can export the workflow definition to a file as a record of the deployed, working version.

    The export WF definition key, is I believe time limited, it would nice to be able to define that this 'final' release export is perpetual, and so could be referenced by our source control... ( and then reimported at any point should it be needed)

  12. Copy trigger and inputs and outputs and targets automatically for all variations

    Would be great if the systems would copy trigger and inputs and outputs and targets automatically for all variations as they are unlikely to change.

  13. Use the CollectionContains Function with an External data source on a start form

    When trying to retrieve data from SP on a start event form in NWC, the "collection contain" function does not work with an external data source (for example: SharePoint records collection), its just returns false even if the item is in the collection.

  14. Add developer comments to a Workflow in the Designer

    It would be nice to be able to add comments to a workflow. So as I'm looking through it, I can be alerted to reasons we made a decision to do something a certain way.

    I have been using Log to Instance details to make comments, but that just feels clunky.

  15. Connector Information

    It would be really nice to have more information about the various connectors, like a description and link to their site. For instance, I found the WorkingDays connector in the NWC list and it looks very useful. However, it took me forever to find their web site, in this particular example because their name is so close to Workday. (complicated further by Google's insistence on changing it!)

    It would be great to be able to go to the settings page and scan to find helpful apps and jump right to the product page. It might also save us time trying…

  16. Ability to Create Custom User Roles

    Ability to create new/custom User Roles within NWC. From a security perspective, ability for Designer to build workflows and create connections is a risk. Our org has the need for users to be able to create forms and workflows, but not create new connections.

  17. Purge NWC Instance Data on demand or on schedule

    It would be useful to have the ability to purge the instance data related to a workflow, especially for circumstances where you're collecting personal information.
    An example scenario would be to collect personal data via a NWC workflow with a form submission as a start event, then copying that data into a separate repository (such as SharePoint Online). Upon confirming the data was successfully copied, purging the workflow instance data.
    The other option could be a setting per workflow as to how long to retain instance data after the workflow completes either successfully or encounters an error.

    This is similar…

  18. One click method to refresh site/list contents.

    Currently it is very difficult to access any new lists or new fields within existing lists IF the workflow is has already been created.
    Support suggested changing the connected site, highlighting a different action, then re-establish the original details.
    This methods is not proving very reliable. a single 'refresh all connected content' button would make this a lot easier.

  20. Petty cash summaries

    Need transparency on historic petty cash claims. I.e. no way to check where a particular person's travel reimbursements were paid up until in last claim without going to emails. It would also be good to be able to see if where claims are sitting in the approval process so we can inform employees, like we have in redmap for suppliers.
