  1. Allow reordering variables on the workflow start form.

    Currently, workflow variables are displayed in the order they are created, which is inflexible.

  3. Allow tracking of Authorisation emails sent by Docusign

    Allow tracking of Authorisation emails sent by Docusign

    If Docusign revokes the authorisation token and it needs to be authorised again it would be good if this can be tracked from a workflow

    Please tell us more about your use case.
    Using the Set workflow variable one can get the WorkflowInstance ID, but it sounds like you are needing the Workflow design ID? You can get the Workflow (Design) Name, what use case requires the ID rather than the Name? Thanks

  5. Ability to share generated document as anonymous/guest link for document generation to share the document outside of their organization

    Add the ability in document generation action to generate anonymous or guest link and share the document outside of their organization

    SharePoint online allows to Share a document or a folder by sending or posting an anonymous guest link.

    We can leverage this to add the ability in document generation action where user can generate anonymous or guest link and share the document outside of their organization.

  6. Enhance Start Workflow action to handle running instances

    The behaviour of the Start Workflow action is to suspend the originating workflow if an instance of the called workflow already exists for the list item.

    Proposed is an enhancement to either:
    1. allow the Start Workflow action to be configured such that the originating workflow is allowed to continue
    or
    2. introduce a 'Check Workflow' action that returns a value to indicate if if an instance of a workflow exists for a list item

  7. Auto Update Task Outcome Column

    When a task is completed, the outcome under the Nintex Task Outcome should be auto populated to the default Task Outcome column so that the results of the task can be displayed within the Workflow Status page of the workflow instance.

  8. No way to stop workflows from starting automatically when item is created

    I have three workflows for one list, all are set not to start when an item is created in the list. Issue is that all three workflows start automatically no matter what setting is selected.

    Having options to start workflow when item created, updated, or manual are useless if they all run automatically.

  9. Action set VS. App step

    We are currently migrating our workflows from on premise to O365, the action set has been converted to app step and now requires a site feature to be activated.

    Migration of workflows will not work and is buggy, inline functions do not work and are not available in Nintex cloud.

  10. Start conditions for MS Dynamics CRM Online

    Nintex Workflow Cloud has functionality to monitor MS Dynamics CRM Online to see if an entity is created or changes status. This same functionality is needed for Nintex Workflow for O365, so that workflows can kick off based on an entity changing. To add to this, it needs to be configurable so that the workflow ONLY kicks off when one field changes...right now with Nintex Workflow Cloud, the workflow will kick off if an entity changes in CRM, and you can add a parameter that says a field has to be a certain value or not, but you can't restrict…

  12. Cannot Update User Columns with Office 365 Update Items

    No matter what combination I try (User ID, User Name, Login Name, Display Name) I cannot get the action to update a user column. I just get the error:

    [InputMetaDataXml] : The 'Fields to update' is invalid. Input string was not in a correct format.

    Either I'm not doing something right and the Instructions don't have proper guidance for Updating Users, or the action doesn't work.

  13. Runtime Performance Issues

    I am in the middle of developing a workflow, and when the workflow hits an "O365" action, it freezes for several minutes. HUGE performance issue!!

  14. Web Request takes close to 10 mins to complete

    Every time we call a web request it takes close to 10 mins for the request to even initiate from Nintex.
    We call an Azure hosted web api from within Nintex and we make a log entry just before the request and then we the actual request being made to the Azure API after 10 mins of this log entry.

    What are the reasons for the delay. Can we speed up this process. Its a nightmare trying to develop something with some much of lag time.

    Thanks,
    Sumanth
