  1. Conditions "incomplete" from what I used to know from OnPremNintex

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I was trying to get some essential conditional-if-branches I use often, but there is no condition "If current item field equals value" to select, using "IsEmpty" after that. Likewise there is no condition "Person is a valid SharePoint user" for some re-checking within the workflow. I am missing defining variables and inserting references "on the fly" likewise. Is that because I am using Office365-Nintex in a trial version or is it still in the process of becoming what I used to know OnPrem?!

    Best regards. Looking forward to your answer...

  2. Search for Action Fields in Workflow Designer

    When you have to add a field to an action it resets back to default every time. I would like to be able to search for the field I am looking to add instead of scrolling through the list every time.

    Hi, I believe you are look for search on insert variables? Is that correct? If you could add a screenshot that would be very helpful. Thanks.

  3. Consistent action names

    Having worked with Nintex On-Prem for a number of years I have FINALLY started working with Nintex for O365. I cannot find anything! All the actions that do the same thing have completely different titles... Why? I am so totally lost.
    Can you consistently name the actions in your workflow products regardless of the SharePoint environment they are working on? This goes for NWC too?

    Hi Cassy, Thanks for your feedback, we will look at how you can search for an action in the toolbox in the future.

  4. The Action box is too big, simplify it

    The box for action is too big, way too hard to get the big picture of the workflow. Instead of giving icon on the bottom, it would be better if the icon placed on the left side of the box, so it gets smaller and easy on the eye.

    Hi Radityo, I assumed you were talking about the action size in the toolbox rather than on the canvas. We’ll have to look to at this, thanks for the suggestion. Cheers, Roanna

  5. Requesting new Action under Utility to Encode / Decode URL

    We need this utility to come from Nintex itself rather than we are calling third party web request to encode/decode. It's quite simple, we need a utility to encode/decode URL.
    This will help when we call REST API to SharePoint with special characters.

    Hi Radityo, Could you please provide more details about your scenario?

  6. time

    When specifying for example the subject of an e-mail or the name of a new element of a list, I'd like to chosse the Date / Time when the Workflow is being executed from my "Workflow Context" List on the right.
    Kind regards, Tim

  7. Ability to edit links in emails

    When I need to update a link in an email I need to recreate it rather than being able to edit the existing one. Very time consuming

    Hi Craig, Are you trying to do this in the text editor of the email? Thanks

  8. Improve Translate Document action by allowing the language to be specified as a variable.

    Currently, this action displays a drop down list of available languages to translate to. In addition to this list, it would be helpful to allow us to optionally pass a variable to specify the language instead.

    With the current approach, if we wish to create a workflow that can translate into many different languages, we need to use one copy of this action for each language, even if the business logic is identical for each language. This leads to workflows that are much more complex than they need to be.

  9. Workflow Designer Permission

    When my users have full control on their workspace they also have full control to create workflows. In SP OnPrem I can set in the admin console which team can create workflows in order to stream this more efficiently. The way your licence works (by workflow created) we will need to make sure the workflows are better consolodated. We can do this in our OnPrem but not online. It would be great to have this feature also online so we can control the expenses on our licencing module.

  10. Select current item in Set Approval Status

    There is no option to select the current item in the action: Office 365 Set Approval Status. The only options available are Select All Items and Select Items with following Conditions.

  11. Add an option to the query list action to assist in getting around the 5000 item list threshold

    Currently the workaround for the process of querying a list of more than 5000 items returns an error. The workaround for this is found at http://www.vadimtabakman.com/nintex-workflow-querying-a-list-with-paging.aspx

    This is unwieldy when using Office 365. There is no ability to save as a snippet or a UDA to make this easily insertable in to a workflow. Creating an action that will accept the parameters to make this call without having to insert and configure 7 actions each time it is called would make much easwier from a design perspective.

  12. Document Set

    The link in the task takes you to the doc set properties instead of opening the set to view the documents inside. This isnt helpful. If you are routing a document set for approval the approvers need to view the documents in the set not the document properties.

  17. Bug with UI causing loss of work

    As the designer is "online", it happens that the UI freezes and go back to list of workflows. The consequence is a loss of work because it wasn't saved.

    Please improve the UI and add an option of automatic save.

    Hi all,

    This feature has been depriortized at this stage and moved into the backlog. I will update this ticket when we revisit this idea.

    Cheers,
