  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.

    • 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?

        Palesa, one of our Technical Evangelists posted this comment. I thought this was so valuable that I have repeated it here so it stays in view. A great workaround while we work on a solution with Microsoft.
        Palesa says:
        “Hey guys here’s a little trick which will hopefully help some of you community.nintex.com/docs/DOC-6580”

        I have watched the Youtube video, may even be a convert to rapp after this. Check it out, it will save you time.

          • Increase Document Generation limits for templates

            Increase the limit of allowed Word templates to use from 5 to at least 50. The 5 document limit is too few for building out product manuals that can be edited by users after the fact.

            • 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.

              • 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!

                • 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.

                    • Ability to create and manage email message templates

                      Would like the ability to create, modify and manage email message templates on Nintex Workflow for Office 365, for the Task Process and Assign a task workflow action(s).

                      This is already available on premise, and is a very useful feature, but for people making use of Nintex Workflow for O365, this would most definitely make workflow design quicker if designers could choose an email template, perhaps containing some html and rich text/images (maybe even an email signature) where all they would need to is insert their metadata where necessary.

                      • Handle collection values in dictionaries

                        Implement the option to store collections as a value in a dictionary.

                        Today there is no option to store collections in a dictionary.

                        The Options you have is to store it as one of the following:

                        Text,
                        Boolean,
                        Date/Time,
                        GUID,
                        Number,
                        Integer,
                        Dictionary

                        If you have to pass the dictionary to a webservice that expects a collection in one the values if would fail.

                        So i would prefer if Nintex could implement a collection as a valid data type in a dictionary

                        • 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.

                            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.

                            • Ability to share generated document as anonymous/guest link for document generation to share the document outside of their organization

                              Add the ability in document generation action to generate anonymous or guest link and share the document outside of their organization

                              SharePoint online allows to Share a document or a folder by sending or posting an anonymous guest link.

                              We can leverage this to add the ability in document generation action where user can generate anonymous or guest link and share the document outside of their organization.

                              • Username context variable

                                Currently when using context variables such as 'Created By' these only return Login Name, Display Name, and Email Address, but *not* the actual username. If we want to use just the username from a workflow reference, you have to Regex out the first part of the Login Name, which adds several additional steps to the workflow.

                                  • Be more specific with the errors

                                    I have received some errors where I don't know what to do, because the error is not clear and I can't find anything in internet,
                                    For example: EventAggregator. What is that? What does it mean? What should I do?

                                    • Copy to SharePoint Action required

                                      I have multiple site collections which store controlled master documents (Word format), once approved a PDF copy needs to also be made available from one central library location (open access for all staff). Copy to SharePoint action is sorely missed in O365.

                                      • Start Parameters for Start Workflow action

                                        Would be great to have the ability to pass the Start Workflow action values as start parameters.
