  1. DocuSign Single Sign-On Integration

    DocuSign actions should include support for Single Sign-On between DocuSign and Office 365. Currently, to authenticate a DocuSign user that utilizes Single Sign-On they must be added to an exceptions list, and it is unrealistic to add all users to the exceptions list as this defeats the purpose of using Single Sign-On.

    • Store task ID for Start a task process action

      The "Start a task process" action does not allow the ability to store the task ID in a variable. It would be very handy to allow this, and in the event that multiple tasks are created for the process, store them in a collection.

      • Workflow Errors

        There needs to be some notifcation to the designer or somoene if the workflow errors. When you have multiple workflows across multiple sites a notifcation is helpful in managing your workflows and any issues. This was available in on-prem why has it gone away?

        • Update Item Permissions For External User

          Currently the Update Item Permissions action does not support modifying permissions on external users (reason here:https://community.nintex.com/thread/12513). It would be great if this action could be updated to support external users, or if another action could be developed specifically to interaction with externals users who have been added to the SharePoint site.

          • Document Generation - Specify Template as VARIABLE

            Currently when using the Document Generation action the template can only be selected from a drop down list of documents in the template library. This is very limiting when seeking to build a configurable solution or where the list of templates is very large. Frequent workflow changes will be required.

            Compare this to the old Update Document action where the template URL can be specified as a variable. I understand Nintex Workflow Cloud also supports a variable for the template.

            Please bring this in for O365!

            • Edit Action Description within Action configuration

              When adding an action it would be excellent to be able to also edit the Title/Description. Often you can add a number of similar actions like Set Field etc so I find I often need to view the configuration then leave to edit action description.

              • Really need a replacement for PadLeft.

                If InLine functions are not being replaced in 0365 (which I really hope they are), how about more actions to help with common functions like padding out variable for use in Document title etc..

                • Update Item Permission

                  Similar to the On-Premise, update item permission is very useful for cases that requires custom permissions on list items after approval is done. The O365 Update item permission inhibits users which require 3rd party SSO authentication. This prohibits this functionality with many users. Please consider:
                  1. Creating a “SharePoint Only” version of Update Item permissions which does not authenticate outside of SharePoint, similar to the On-Premise Update Item Permissions
                  2. Embedding the “Update Item Permissions” functionality within the Start a Task and Assign A Task workflow actions.

                  I have already submitted a separate idea for the enabling of 3rd Party…

                  • Update Date/Time Column To Blank

                    The Update Item or Office 365 Update Item action should be able to set a Date/Time column back to a blank value, which is currently not possible.

                    • Update User Profile Action. Nuff Said.

                      It would be nice to have an action to update user profiles. Currently the only way is to use a SOAP web service. This would be very useful in onboarding/offboarding, mass updates when titles,department names, etc.. change.

                      • Global task delegation

                        We moved from SP2010 to SPO and we need global task delegation back. When one of our employees goes on vacation, they need the option to delegate ALL nintex tasks to another user for a set date range. This "upgrade" to SPO and Nintex Online has been a nightmare for end users. Missing way too many important features.

                            • Multi-factor authentication support for live actions.

                              Currently, none of the Nintex live actions support any multi-factor authentication. More and more clients are switching to this level of security and the lack of this support greatly inhibits our feature offerings. None of the live action advantages are available and clients can't switch to multi-factor authentication without breaking workflows that utilize these features.

This is different from all other site types within SharePoint Online.

                                    • Show or Hide Allowed Actions

                                      In the current On-Prem I can Show/Hide actions for the users using a AD Group. This way we are able to control what the developer sees. Based on our maturity we show/hide actions. Such a feature is not available in O365 and this is very crucial for us to implement the governance in O365.
