  3. Variables in workflow

    It would be great to have an option that allows you to delete all unused variables.
    Also, an option to find out where a variable is used would be handy.

  4. Document generation: German Date Format

    When adding date tags in document generation you can select between 6 date time formats but in Germany they are confusing as they are not common here.
    It would be helpful if german date format dd.MM.yyyy hh.mm would be supported.

  5. Reformatting of task outcomes

    Then renaming Task outcomes they are reformatted by the designer with the following rules:
    first character will get uppercased
    all other words will get lowercased

    Sample
    let deplartment Research&Development decide
    will lead to
    Let deplartment research&development decide

    In german this leads to mal worded choices. I'd like to have control over casing of task outcomes

  6. 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.

  7. document generation metadata

    it would be awesome to be able to tag document generation documents with metadata so when we save them in a document library we can tag them appropriately so then views, etc can be created off the metadata.

  8. integrate with modern webparts

    This seems a long shot, but one of the big short comings with the new Communication sites is the ability to seamlessly create content, have it approved and then publish it to the modern webparts.

    I'm not sure if it's achievable but our aim (we can't be the only ones) is to allow anyone to create content, have it approved by a group of approvers, then push that content to one of the many modern webparts, such as Hero or News.

    Currently this approval process is missing from communication sites and then when created, the webparts need to manually updated.…

  14. Needs a lot of work

    This new Query Action is so over complicated and does not make sense. The associated Nintex Help is extremely poor and simply restates the fields....no examples.

  16. Parse for Tokens Twice

    In Nintex on-prem products, the Build String action contains a checkbox setting named "Parse for Tokens twice". Please add this to Nintex for Office 365. This feature is critical to create solutions that are very flexible and enable users to maintain configuration settings. Specifically, to allow a text variable to contain additional variables or other tokens that can be merged into the variable at run time.

  17. Separate date and Time fucntion

    It would be nice that date and time function come as two separate functions. Because even if I select date only as the format; the output in the email body show both date and time.

    Lisa Tam responded

    Hey there,
    You can achieve this by using the Advance Lookup, and setting the Return Type (X icon next to the field) as either ‘Long Date’ or ‘Short Date’.
    Hope that helps.
    Cheers,
    Lisa

  18. previous value field

    I would really like to see the previous value field reinstated in Nintex workflows, for example when selecting a value, being able to choose "created by (previous value)" as an option.

  19. Better exposure of current workflow

    There is not an indication of what current workflow you are working on unless you open the Settings panel. The current workflow should be included in the breadcrumb at the top of the interface ... "Back to Workflow Galler > List Workflow: (name) > Current Workfllow: (name).
