  1. Custom display name for action in designer

    In Nintex 2007 you could kind of "comment" on a workflow by editing the display names of the actions you added to it. But now I cannot find such an option anymore - it would be great to be able to do this again.

  2. Open item in edit or view mode from workflow

    It would be a great feature to allow opening a listitem from a workflow.

    This can help in standardizing inputs.

  4. Limitation of Mimimum 'Edit' permission to Run worklfow

    Our users are facing problem to trigger a workflow manually through workflow initiation form.
    Users have 'Read' permission on site and Edit permission at CustomTask list (unique permissions). We have added 'Reassign' custom action in ECB menu of CustomTask list. Once user clicked on 'Reassign' option it will redirect to worklfow initiation form. Where user can enter Assignee and Start a workflow.
    But the users who don't have Edit access on site level they are getting Access denied error. If we give Edit permission to users they can trigger the workflow. However we don't want to set Edit permission at…

  5. Set Publishing Image field

    Would like to be able to set a publishing image field. I can set hyperlinks, but there's no current way to set an ImageFieldValue object from Nintex workflows.

    Hi, would be useful to know whether the workflow I'm working on in the gallery is either saved/published or not saved.

  7. Move item to folder workflow action

    I would like ta workflow action to move an item to a folder. The move action would maintain the created by, modified by, created and last modified fields of the original item.

  8. Initiator email: consistency in lookups / insert reference

    I am finding annoying inconsistency with the lookup feature in the Workflow designer:

    If I click in the Subject field, under Workflow Context I get three initiator options:

    login name
    display name
    email address

    However, if I click in the To field, the lookup only offers me a single option ("Initiator"), which appears to insert the Initiator's ID (not email address, which is clearly what is required here).

    Decided to work around this, by placing the initiator's email address into a workflow variable. However, I found that the Set Variable action again does not offer Initiator Email as a lookup…

  9. I just want to save!!!!!

    I don't give a crap if there is an error that is preventing publishing. I don't want to publish, I want to save. So now, I have no idea if the damn thing saved & can't fix the error because it apparently takes some indefinite amount of time for a new column to show up in the Nitex world. So I've been working on a workflow for hours in your slow interface & might lose all my changes because of your worthless, cryptic error.

  10. Ability to export via WF gallery screen

    It would be helpful if there was a button or link that one could click to export a workflow via the Workflows Gallery screen in Nintex Workflow for Office 365.

  11. Add sort and filter to the variables window

    After adding variable they are hard to find. If they are sortable and/or filterable it makes it easier. Sort A-Z, Z-A; Filter by type

  12. Popup user notifications

    It would be great to trigger simple user popup notification. I would use it to alert users to issues in uploading documents to a library based on some meta-data condition.

  15. Edit Hyperlinks in HTML View in Email Body

    When inseting Hyperlinks into emails or anywhere pretty much it embeds it into a hidden string-builder and it not able to be edited after the fact, you have to delete the whole hyperlink and start again.

    Impossible to debug sometime as you can't see what is there.

  18. Error publishing workflow

    I am able to save a very simple workflow but get the following error when attempting to publish it: "Error publishing workflow. Workflow XAML failed validation due to the following errors: The private implementation of activity '1: DynamicActivity' has the following validation error: Value for a required activity argument 'Operand' was not supplied. HTTP headers received from the server - ActivityId: c029b60f-5b33-462a-856d-4545464f1a6a. NodeId: . Scope: . Client ActivityId : 79a2839d-3013-3000-08dc-17016a223847.

  19. Workflow Designer problem

    I work in the Nintex Workflow team in Melbourne and am testing a workflow that includes the Google URL Shortener action.
    Both fields (URL and Shortened URL) have what appear to be valid entries:
    URL = http://www.theage.com.au
    Shortened URL = text variable named Age
    But if I try to publish the workflow the Designer gives this error message: "Error publishing workflow. The workflow contains actions that still must be configured."
    Also the help for this topic doesn't make clear what the possible problem / resolution might be.

  20. Show name of Workflow in Designer

    If you are working with multiple workflows on a list it would be helpful, to directly have the name of the workflow either in der chrome-bar (where currently only the listname is being shown) and/or in the tab-title-bar, so it will show up when cycling through multiple tabs in the browser.
