  1. add an option to search for an action within workflow

    imagine a giant workflow, say, 200 + actions. it has lots of paths, all collapsed, that has action sets withing action sets within parallel tasks and so on

    then you need to correct a specific action.

    would be nice if we could simply find an action by name?

  2. Task action to assign task based on the order of user input in the multiple person column

    Scenario:
    1) The user inputs a person in people list column (multiple allowed) with is order

    User 3
    User 1
    User 2

    2) Then using Nintex Workflow for Office 365 - Task action to assign the task based on the person column as step 1. The task has been configured to assign task as Serial one at the time.

    Expectation is the Task order will be
    User 3
    User 1
    User 2

    But the result is the order based on the order of the user added to the site.

    For example the user added to the site with this order …

  3. Add 'All must agree on a specific outcome' as completion criteria

    We would like to add this option on the Task action in Nintex Workflow for Office 365.

    All must agree on a specific outcome

    [ ref:00D90q6Cb.5002v2XyiIX:ref ]

    All assignees must select the outcome specified in the 'Outcome' drop down list. If any assignee chooses an alternative outcome, all pending tasks will be set to 'not required', the 'outcome achieved' variable will be set to 'no' and the overall task outcome will be blank.

    Hey Elisabeth,

    Have you tried using ‘Wait for percentage of a response’ as a Completion Criteria, setting the Required Percentage as 100%? With this setup, if all users have not selected the required outcome, it will then use the default outcome.

  4. Central Place to terminate Suspended workflows either at list or site level

    Can we get a central place within nintex online to terminate or retry suspended workflows?
    Use case: we have a list, managed by users, that syncs specific info from one list to another. The source list had a choice column change and thus has started suspending wf's because users did not make sure destination choice column contained the same values. Now we have 200+ suspended workflows in the source list. Due to the nature of a suspended wf, we cannot just kick off a new on those items, even after the issue with the choice values are fixed between the…

  5. Line Breaks in MultiLine Plaintext Textboxes?

    How about supporting the ability to do new lines in multi-line plain text textboxes?

    An example would be a comments field, where multiple comments are entered. You should be able to use the Regular Expression action to replace a temporary character (eg ~) where you want the line break to be, with \r\n. The Regular Expression action even tells you to use .NET syntax, which is \r\n but it doesn't work.

    I've googled and googled for a solution but can't find a solution for Nintex 365. Seems like such a simple thing but it can't be done, at least not…

  7. Plain Text Emails

    A system we use strips out all html from emails making it hard to comprehend the email being sent out. Previously we were able to select "Plain Text" option for the body of an email. This worked perfectly on prem.

    Any chance to bring it back?

  9. Change basic auth encoding

    Encoding for basic auth when provided with user and pass doesnt work in the Web Request action.

    Also, change the storage options for the response of Web Request to something other than choice/http/text. Text doesnt allow enough room to capture entire tokens for auth.

  10. Create PDF from HTML, Enhanced Rich Text field (with Pictures and Tables), or Other File

    Would really like to see the ability to create PDFs that can be saved to Document Libraries that are generated from existing HTML or from any other type of file format (email, .rtf, etc.) Not looking for additional tagging or anything (like what DocGen provides). Simply looking for a PDF Converter for an existing file.

    Doc Gen has been unsuccessful for generating PDFs from existing HTML content that includes formatted tables. Really could benefit from being able to generate PDFs on the fly from already existing content.

    It would be great if the api for creating/updating site workflows would also allow us to create/update workflow schedules.

  14. Office 365 update item permissions: Azure IP restrictions

    We have conditional access restrictions in place for our O365 tenants which is preventing us to use some of the Nintex O365 workflow actions. In particular authentication for internal users is only allowed from an approved range of IP addresses. Any workflow action using the "Site and user administration" connection are failing to run as authentication is failing.
    Proposed workarounds from Nintex were to whitelist whole Azure IP restrictions or to use a service account that would have access to all of the sites. Both solutions are considered highly risky for our organization.
    Requesting solution from Nintex to build a…

  15. Document Generation - Ability to conditionally hide sections of a document

    In the Nintex Document tagger, please give us the ability to show or hide (i.e include or not include) portions of a document based on the value of a Yes/No variable. This could be done by having a tag that has the name of a variable followed by a suffix to allow us to mark where to start and end a portion to conditionally include.

    For example, for a Yes/No workflow variable named "Show Terms and Conditions", you could have the following tag:

    <<VariableShowu0020Termsu0020andu0020ConditionsIncludeStart>>

    Hello world. This is a portion of a…

  18. Template matching with DocuSign using Nintex Workflow action

    We will like to use Nintex Workflow DocuSign actions and to be able to make use of the automatic template matching.
    It looks like this is not possible with Nintex Workflow for Office 365, Version: 1.0.4.3 as this feature is not implemented.

    Automatic template matching compares the files that you upload with all previously saved templates. Based on the sensitivity setting you select, if the match is close enough, you can choose to apply the matching template to your document, either automatically or with a notification. When you apply a matched template, all aspects of the template are applied to…

  19. Modified Start Condition on People fields does not start workflow

    Setting a modified start condition in the workflow Settings does not trigger the workflow to start when the document library item is modified (a document set). The modified start condition compares the values of two fields on the document library item and should start the workflow if they are not equal. The two fields being compared are People fields with multiple selctions possible.

  20. Microsoft Edge Browser Support

    Microsoft no longer supports the use of IE11 for Office 365 applications but Nintex does not support Microsoft Edge. We have to browser jump between IE11 and Edge to get our work done.
