  1. Add snippets functionality to NWC

    Following from a discussion on the community, it would be great to bring the Nintex for SharePoint functionality of snippets to NWC.

    Snippets allows for parts of a workflow to be saved to a gallery for easy re-use in other workflows.

  2. option to not capture instance data for privacy reasons

    When a workflow executes all data for the workflow variables are available in the workflow instance start data in the NWC dashboard.

    Some data that is captured on forms would include data that is personal private information (eg personal email, phone number, etc).

    Thus the NWC instance data becomes an additional data store to be considered for data breach implications.

    It would be great for either:
    1) a global option when publishing the workflow to not capture variable values in instance start data

    or

    2) an optional variable by variable to not be captured in instance start data.

  3. Add Nintex Services status page link to NWC Dashboard Settings area

    Can we add a link to the Nintex Services status page somewhere in the NWC dashboard? Possibly in the Settings tab so that it is quickly available to administrators while troubleshooting failed instances. It occurred to me while putting together our training material for the new NWC Practitioner course that users will have to dig for that page or know the link off the top of their heads.

  4. 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. Cheers, Tye Eyden, New Belgium Brewing

  5. Query/Parse XML action

    NWC provides a Query JSON action, but no XML equivalent. While most APIs expose both, some APIs do not and other scenarios still require parsing XML so it would be great to see this included.

  6. Re-route automatic replies to reply email (change default sender address)

    It would be great to change the default sender address so we would get automatic replies if the recipient is out of the office.

  7. Create HTML driven email editor

    would love the ability to develop HTML emails in the workflow that support images and other formatting requirements to replicate the visual of our other email platforms

  8. Add sorting to the SharePoint Query List action

    the SharePoint QUERY LIST action has no option to SORT the results like its ancestors in NW365 and NW2016. As there are no other sort actions or options this seems a real omission. (The SORT COLLECTION is very basic and not capable of sorting items in a collection).

  11. Instance Dashboard to include workflow writable column

    When you have many workflows running within a single list, it would be useful to be able to either define the Instance Name from the workflow.
    Or have another column the WF could write to, to enable easier identification of a single instance.. Currently you have to open each one OR match the Date Initiated with the create date.

    Being able to add an identifier from the list item (ID, Title etc) would really help,

  12. NWC API Actions

    It would be great to have a set of actions that expoes the NWC API. This would allow for a repeat workflow to get a list of all workflows, or perhaps if it's ever added, automated user provisioning (e.g. add user to NWC, add user(s) to group(s)).

  13. Dynamic dropdown options

    Make the dropdown field options able to be determined by rules.

    IF variable1 = 'x' THEN dropdown options = 'a,b,c'
    IF variable1 = 'y' THEN dropdown options = 'd,e,f'

    etc.

  14. NWC switch by value action needs a default branch for unhandled values

    Switch condition does not have an other loop. Trying to migrate a Nintex Office 365 workflow to NWC but due to lack of this functionality, the migrated WF cannot be like for like.

  15. Input a specific email for Workflow Instance Fails Alert Notifications

    It would be great if you could just set an email of your choosing for Workflow Fails outside of the choices given. For example I have all my workflows throughout the Nintex workflow suite to send email notifications to a Microsoft Teams, would be great to have the same option to do so with NWC with failed instances.

  16. More flexibility with buttons - especially a Cancel button

    I wish NWC had either a default Cancel button or the ability to add one. I have a couple of forms that I'm redesigning in NWC and they are essentially worksheets that have no need for a workflow - they just help the user make a determination. It would be nice if the user could click a 'Cancel' button to clear out the form and start over.

    Alternately it would be nice to be able to hide the 'Submit' button based on a case like this, or to use rules to hide it based on form data.

  17. Start Form Secure Inputs

    Would be great to have an option like in Power Automate where you can create secured inputs so that the collected data cannot be viewed from the instance start details.

  18. NWC Format date to string ISO8601 output format

    For the NWC action format date to string can we add the ISO8601 date format please.
    This is the format of yyyy-mm-ddThh:mi:ss.mmm (no spaces)
    or date style 126 in SQL format.
    (see https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/t-sql/functions/cast-and-convert-transact-sql?view=sql-server-ver15#date-and-time-styles)

    Thanks

  19. Update File Name in Workflow

    Would be great if there was a way to update the name of a file that has been submitted via a Nintex Form within the workflow instance itself. This would make it much easier to associate files with other references provided within the form, such as a Title or Name.
