    For Nintex Workflow O365 actions Run If and Condition Branch, the first condition for List Lookup Source Field is missing the format control. Available for the 2nd comparison condition only. Hope that will added to the first field.

  2. Workflow and Forms versioning for Office 365

    Would it be possible to create a backup library for Workflow and Forms when the app is installed on the site?

    You can then have the option to "backup" the workflow or form on publish, which will create/overwrite the workflow/form.

    We could also have the option of configuring a specific library for these files.

    Currently, it is a manual process of exporting these files and saving them in a library with versioning.

  5. Inserting hyperlink fields into emails and tasks

    When you take a sharepoint hyperlink field and put it into a task form or email, by default the value of the field is converted to string and looks like this:
    Salesforce - from side bar
    {"__metadata":{"type":"SP.FieldUrlValue"},"Description":"https:\/\/na67.lightning.force.com\/lightning\/r\/Opportunity\/0060z00001wLhd7AAC\/view","Url":"https:\/\/na67.lightning.force.com\/lightning\/r\/Opportunity\/0060z00001wLhd7AAC\/view"}

    By default, it should take the display text of the hyperlink and build a link out of it with the URL

  6. Nintex Workflow for Office 365 - Reminder Emails (Overdue Notifications) to send only on Business days

    We have a requirement to send Reminder email notifications only on business days when the task becomes overdue. I see that there is no such functionality available to “Assign Flexi Task” reminder emails. Please let us know if/when you can add this feature. Thank you so much!

  7. Use OAuth 2.0 for all connections

    Because we use Federation with an external authentication provider, our users do not know the AAD password of their associated account. Consequently, the Basic (username and password) authentication method will not work for us. Can we convert all Basic auth connection types to use OAuth 2.0 instead?

  8. Use Workflow-Connections for Exchange-Online actions

    Not yet all connections are making use of the workflow-connection-manager. To have

    a) a consistent workflow-design experience
    b) to centrally manage connections across workflows
    c) to leverage modern authentication

    refit the Exchange-Online actions to use the connection-manager

  9. Share Workflow among developers

    I would like to share the workflow with the other developers. But I could not find a way to do it. Nintex should allow multiple developers to modify the same workflow.

  10. Defense mechanism for large workflows

    Before publishing large workflows it will be useful if the designer could alert users of:
    - how many actions are being used
    - recommendation of any best practise to adopt

  11. Workflow start trigger summary

    It would be good if the triggers to start a workflow were available in the workflow list, so you can check which ones are enabled or only manual start without having to go into the workflow itself

  12. conditional start on Blank Dates

    It would be really nice if we could look at the date column within a SharePoint and check if the date is blank or not and start a workflow based on that. It is really challenging when we only get greater than/less than and equals for date fields.

    If Date is NOT NULL(or blank) then Run the workflow....for example.

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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. Highlight last action selected in designer.

    Often times I have to go over several actions of the same type in mi workflow changing their config. It would be useful to have the last selected action be highlighted in some way so as to keep track of my progress. Now I do this by centering the action in the window but this is not ideal.

  20. Allow Variables to have a Default Value

    The ability to set a "Default Value" for most variable types is not available. It's available in the on prem version.
