  1. This is related to ideas https://ideas.novacura.com/forums/953926-novacura-flow-classic/suggestions/47158924-change-sql-validations-in-studio and https://ideas.novacura.com/forums/953926-novacura-flow-classic/suggestions/47473418-update-the-version-of-the-sqlparser. Sometimes Flow Studio will flag steps with a yellow "non-critical" error because Flow can't parse the code correctly. Most often I see this in SQL Server machine steps, but it can happen in other kinds of connectors too. While it would of course be lovely if the parser could be better, I think it will be hard to make it 100% correct. That's why I would like a RMB option to Ignore a yellow error on a machine step, sort of like when I want a word processor to stop flagging…

  2. Frequently, I design a workflow and realize the need to switch it from a User Flow to a Fragment, either due to oversight during creation or the newfound requirement for reusability. The current process of converting the workflow in the studio is rather cumbersome. Although I've managed to export the Flow, manually tweak the XML, and then re-import it to achieve a Fragment, it strikes me that this procedure could be streamlined. Perhaps a more user-friendly approach would involve incorporating a 'Convert To' option, accessible through a simple right-click within the server explorer, offering a range of flow type transformations

  3. When stepping through a workflow with breakpoints, the step that is about to be activated is highlighted. This could be made clearer by instead highlighting the arrow leading to the next step, indicating exactly what is about to happen. This would also show which path has lead to a step with multiple inputs.

  4. Currently, Flow Script does not offer any assistance in code formatting, which could lead to less readable and harder to manage scripts.

    We suggest the introduction of a "Code Formatter" button in Flow Script. This button would apply some basic formatting rules, such as indentation, to make scripts more readable and easier to maintain. Even though users may request further customization options, having basic formatting support will be a significant improvement over the current situation.

  5. Currently, when looping through a dataset/table, users need to create a copy of it, check if it is empty, fetch one row at a time, process it, and then exclude that row before continuing the loop. This process involves unnecessary steps and can be time-consuming. Therefore, I propose the implementation of an easy-to-use "For Each" loop element. This element should allow users to set the dataset and define the assignment of each row, simplifying the iteration process. It should automatically handle row traversal without requiring additional checks or dataset manipulation. This feature would enhance productivity by streamlining dataset processing and…

  6. A feature enhancement that allows users to update the values of flow variables from outside of a script. Currently, when working with variables X and Y, executing a script step only allows for returning a value to overwrite one of them, or utilizing a complex workaround with a record to update both variables. We propose the addition of a simple syntax, such as ":flow.X = "something";" within the script, where the ":flow" prefix defines the scope of the variable being modified. This improvement will streamline the process of updating variables, eliminating the need for additional steps and making script operations…

  8. We have startad using a lot of images in our Flows to show product images. There are however quite some limitations in this area.

    I would like a see a Image function that allows us to display a image in any element.

    The function should take image source, width and height (and maybe something to keep aspect ration or not). The width and height would rezise the image server side for faster load times on the client.

    Img(url, 300, 300, 1)

    This would allow us to display a list of items with images in List Selection Input or in a…

  9. When changing a fragment and updating dependencies it can be VERY confusing to follow the changes in Flows that have been changed.
    In complex flows using a lot of fragments, some flow specific and some used in a lot of flows, when i do changes and want to update PROD i can frequently see that between my changes and the last shared version to PROD other changes have been made, but i cannot see a comment other than "Auto updated version dependencies". If there is a comment in the changed fragment, please use that comment in all dependencies as well,…

  10. Support for multiple languages in Flow can be a involved process and with many large workflows in a solution it can be challenging to provide a consistent translation (and terminology!) in your apps. In the translation industry, a common way to work is to have a side-by-side or spreadsheet view of all text with the original language on one side and the translations on the other. I would love it if the Languages tab in Environment could collect all text from one or multiple apps and then put that text in a table with editable fields where you can enter…

  11. A lot of times i want to copy + past multiple steps from an existing flow. This is currently only possible for one element OR in Edit mode. If someone else has a non committed working version we cannot even set it to edit mode to copy/paste parts of the flow.

    Same goes for machine/script steps which are larger. Since you are not allowed to scroll you cannot copy the content without setting the flow to edit mode.

    Would be nice to give the possibility to select like in edit mode for both these cases so we can copy whatever…

  12. We request an enhancement to enable script steps to directly interact with included workflows and machine steps. Currently, this limitation leads to complex workarounds and inefficiencies, particularly when processing datasets in loops. With the proposed improvement, users can easily call included workflows and machine steps from within script steps, streamlining data processing and reducing the need for intermediary datasets. This enhancement will significantly improve workflow efficiency and simplify task execution.

  13. When changing a input type (say list selection with a menu) values need to be copied manually one by one. This is prone to error.

    It would be ideal if comparable data is copied into the correct fields so any changes in the user step items could be done without loss of data

  14. The ability to show more than 100 rows per page in a datagrid for a Web NG Client is typically controlled by the settings and configuration of the datagrid component.

    It was available in the old web client but is not present in the NG web client.

  15. We kindly request the implementation of a new feature within Flow Studio, allowing the integration of "Workflow Fragment" as a Seed Item while utilizing a data arrow to the start step. Currently, any attempt to include a Workflow Fragment as a Seed Item leads to undesired outcomes. Specifically, when users press the "Run" button, the flow crashes, or upon selecting the "Publish" button, an error message surfaces: "Missing mapping for NovaCura.Flow.Designer.CanvasItems (..). Possible usage of unconverted elements from previous Flow versions."

  16. In Flow Studio, users encounter a challenge where some column names appear twice in the variable list without any indication of their originating table. This lack of distinction can lead to confusion and potential errors in selecting the correct variable.

    Proposed solution is to enhance the variable list display to include the source table's name along with the column name. This will enable users to easily distinguish between variables with the same name but from different tables, thereby reducing confusion and improving accuracy in variable selection. Implementing this feature could involve a format like "TableName.ColumnName" or a similar approach that…

  17. I have several usersteps in multiple workflows, where the only purpose is to scan a barcode. I`ve been able to get the novacura app on mobile devices to automatically enter the input field (with the "Auto Focus input" turned on in the app), but I cannot get novacura to also select the camera. They need to click on the QR-icon every time. I could of course buy a bluetooth barcode reader, but I want this to work also with the mobile camera.

    Can you check if it`s possible to add QR code (camera) as keyboard type for text- and numeric…

  19. Currently, when right-clicking a user step in the application, users have the helpful option "Select Everything East of Item" available in the context menu. However, we propose the inclusion of additional options, specifically "Select Everything North of Item" and "Select Everything South of Item," to further enhance the usability and flexibility of the user interface.
