  1. 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…

  2. API for creating/updating workflow schedules

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

  3. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. Ability to create or attach a workflow to a Site Content Type

    Although Component Workflows are released, they are not a replacement to Globally Reusable Workflows available in SharePoint Designer 2010 and also available with Nintex for SharePoint (On-Prem).
    We have no ability to attach a workflow or trigger a workflow based on a Content Type and if there are many lists using a single content type the workflow has to be duplicated in each list.
    Are there plans to close this gap between On-Prem and Nintex for Office 365?

  10. Better Error Notifications When Publishing

    Errors when publishing a workflow can be difficult to troubleshoot since the error messages are generic.

    For example
    "Error publishing workflow. Specified data type does not match the current data type of the property"

    It would be helpful to know what property it is talking about, the data type it is expecting, what is trying to send it the incorrect value and what value it is trying to send.

  11. Lazy Approval - Ability to somehow know WHO APPROVED IT!

    The lazy approval is a nice thing to have, but how can I let users have this feature when there is no way of knowing WHO THE APPROVER WAS??? When the auditors look to see who approved access to a system, they do not want to see "Approved by SharePoint App"....they want to see an individual's name.

  13. Populate collection-variable from item

    When using the "set variable" action I can populate any list-field into a variable.

    However: if the field is of type "choice" or "lookup" and the field allows multiple values, I would assume that I could populate a collection, containing all values of my "multi-choice" or "multi-lookup" field.

    However, this is not the case. Instead a choice column with multiple values creates a JSON-string suggesting collection-of-strings. But this is just a string. Similar for lookups.

    Instead I have to query the list and return the result into a collection. This way I get a collection of values - why can't…

  14. Term Store synonyms and Abbrebiations

    Term Store Synonym

    Please allow users to select synonyms and abbreviations for this term Store. VIP - I have a list of schools from which users should select. Users should not be required to always enter the legal school name in the default label. Our users are forced to use only the Default Label. Please fix this ASAP. This is crucial for an application we are about to take live in a few weeks.

    Thanks
    Carol

  15. add an ability to deploy nintex apps via code?

    we have new sites we deploy via an automatic process.
    we would like to either
    1) have some way to automate nintex forms and workflows installation
    or
    2) be able to provision forms and workflows via API BEFORE we install the apps (it was working before and then stopped, and probably would be nice if that would be a supported scenario). in this case we can deploy all we can automatically and then the user/site admin would only need to install nintex forms and workflow apps.

  17. Add ServiceNow connector

    It would be great to have a serviceNow connector added as an action which allow you to add, update, delete and retrieve Servicenow data. This is already available in NWC but not yet in Nintex O365 Workflow

  18. Slow Environment

    Working in the O365 version is excruciating. Forms are bad enough, however workflows are extremely slow. Opening/closing/saving actions, saving/publishing any size workflow takes a ridiculous amount of time. We are migrating approx. 80 workflows. This will take a year at the speed this system works. And that's not counting all the new forms we are constantly building. Can the performance of the O365 environment please be improved.

  19. Create Modern Site Collections / Sites

    There is currently no support from the Office 365 Create Site or Office 365 Create Site Collection actions to create modern team or modern communication sites. This would be extremely valuable for site generation automation and controlling access to site generation while still giving users to option to user a modern site.
