How to save a filtered view of workflows in NWC?

Greetings:

 

The  default view of the workflows in my NWC tenant  dashboard is unfiltered, so I see a lot of workflows in various stages of development and testing as well as the ones that are in production.  I have created tags to apply as filters and this works great but there doesn’t appear to be a way to save a filtered view of the dashboard as the new default view).  It’s a royal pain to have to apply the same filters each time I click on the dashboard. Is there a way to set a filtered view as the default?

I’m not sure which page you’re at, but a lot of the filterable pages modify the URL after the filter has been applied.  After you’ve applied your filter, are you able to copy the URL of the page and use that to re-apply all the filters?

Example

Default URL: https://yourtenant-12345.workflowcloud.com/dashboard/process/all

Filtered URL: https://yourtenant-12345.workflowcloud.com/dashboard/process/all?published=true&tags=Testing

OK, that worked so thanks for the hint. It’s not an ideal solution since I have to create and save another bookmark, but it’s better than reapplying two filter conditions each time. The real ideal solution would be the ability to name and save filtered views, just as you can do with a SharePoint list view or library view.

I agree this would be some useful functionality to add to the product. I suggest going to the Nintex Ideas site and submit this as a suggestion. It could then be voted up and possibly get on the roadmap. I would definitely vote for it!

I don’t know if it’ll matter much, but it looks like you made the idea under Process Accelerator Gallery → Nintex Workflow Cloud

 

I think (I may be wrong) that this would go in the “Nintex Automation Cloud (formerly Nintex Workflow Cloud)” section… Product name changes are annoying.

The link to the idea is here: https://ideas.nintex.com/ideas/IDEA-I-5987.

I assigned it the category of Nintex Workflow Cloud.  I don’t know how it wound up under Process Acceleration, nor do I know how to move it now that it’s there.
