  1. Support for .nwf File Import

    Nintex Workflow for Office 365 should support importing the .nwf files. We have to redevelop the workflows again in Office 365 which takes a lot of time.

    Reinstating this request as it is clear that delegation is required and not escalation.

  3. Convert mulit-select text to string in O365

    I created a multi-select column time to allow multi-select text from a list look up. Adding the selected column to an email gave me the following output:

    {"results":[{"Id":1,"Value":"Karen Borg"},{"Id":23,"Value":"Anne Weiler"},{"Id":17,"Value":"David So"},{"Id":2,"Value":"Julian Isla"},{"Id":11,"Value":"Eric Gruber"},{"Id":7,"Value":"Dan Jummp"},{"Id":14,"Value":"Alicia Thomber"},{"Id":22,"Value":"Ty Carlson"}]}

    Need a way to convert this array to a readable list.

    Hi, We currently have list lookups in workflow in the advanced lookup for the relevant action configurations. Was there a particular action you were looking at?

  5. Change Title of O365 Add User to Group, add "SharePoint" to it

    There are two of these actions: one to add a user to a security group and one that looks very similar to add a user to a "group". The latter action applies to SHAREPOINT groups, and it would be helpful to just add the word "SharePoint" into the title of the "O365 Add User to Group" action in the designer. To reduce confusion and make it consistent with the title of the other similar action which is "O365 Add User to Security Group". In the attached file you will see visually how similar these two actions are.

  7. Fix Horizontal Scroll bar in Mac OSX

    I'm using Crome browser on a Mac running Yosemite. In the Workflow designer screen, there is no horizontal scroll bar showing, making it VERY hard (if not impossible) to edit items off the designer area.

  8. Use any function that returns True or False to assign value to boolean workflow variable

    My choices for setting a workflow variable of type Boolean are very limited. Allow designer to use any of the inline functions that result in a Boolean to accomplish this.

  9. Language settings bug

    Hi, I started with IE11 with the first language = Dutch.
    Because I wanted to use Nintex Workflow for Office365 I set my browser language to English (UK). Now most of the Nintex Workflow Designer is in English, but part of the action names and settings remain in Dutch, others are in English.

  10. Workflow tasks: Add the ability to mark a percentage of a task complete and to define it's predecessors

    In the Workflow Task list, there are two columns for % Complete and Predecessors.

    These could be integrated within a Flexi-task so that a group of tasks can be completed before a task can be approved.

    The percentage completed could be used to track the progress of a task, and the percentage can be incremented as the task gets closer to completion.

    Thanks for your feedback. We are reviewing this and encourage other users of UserVoice to vote if they feel this is important.

  11. permissions change on current item

    it would be really awesome if you could alter the permissions directly with a simple activity on the current item instead of having to call the very lengthy o365 permission change activity to get to your current item (and potentially screw it up or have to change the password each time the application user password changes).

  12. Replace Substring in String

    It would be great if this action could handle spaces, ie search for a space and replace it with a character.

  13. Tutorial instructions

    I am trying to follow a basic leave request approval workflow design but the screen shots shown here: https://community.nintex.com/docs/DOC-1002
    do not match what I can see on the screen when trying the trial version as I do not have the icon next to the subject line to insert reference..........

  14. Add GUID to list of fields to lookup by for a task

    When assigning a task, we get a task ID that is a guid. There is no way to lookup additional values for that task (comment, etc.).

    SharePoint Designer handles this by exposing a field called GUID on the task list that can be used to lookup values from that task.

  15. Improve Icons

    The icons took a big step back compared to the previous client based versions, do you have to have a giant red square taking up limited icon space on all item related tasks. The arrows/colors are very tiny and slow me down.

  16. Allow an option in the condition actions if Null.

    Currently there isn't availability to select if value is empty. It was be great if you had this functionality.

  17. Allow Carriage Returns/New Lines in Yammer Messages

    I would like the ability to better format the message that gets sent to Yammer. Right now, I cannot seem to find a way to add carriage returns into the message. Messages on Yammer allow this kind of formatting, so perhaps I'm just missing something in the workflow creation.

    If not, I would to be able to do this

  18. Better support low-resolution displays (e.g 1024*720)

    Presently using a low-res display causes some dialogues to be unusable, typically some controls can be off-screen to the right. I found this out at a customer demo when only a low-res projector was available. It would be useful if these wide dialogues could be provided with horizontal scroll when they exceed the screen dimensions.

  19. Usability of assign a task action

    Hi,

    Is it possible to replicate the user experience for configuring the action for assigning a task in on premise?

    i.e. In On premise version, the different areas are split into a ribbon which makes it easy to identify what you are configuring. In the Office 365, it can sometimes be confusing as the configurations screen is in one page.

  20. Get Information from created Workflow Task related to current item

    Would like to be able to retrieve information from the workflow task created in a previous step. Currently there doesn't seem to be a good method for doing this other than trying to use the "related Items" field for validation (which also fails). Would like to see the related workflow task associated as an integral part of the workflow variables.

    Thanks for the feedback. Can you advise the kind of information you want to retrieve, what the specific scenario is etc, so we can better understand what you are trying to achieve?

    thanks,
