  1. Skip action on error

    Allow the option to skip an action if an error occurs while performing it. For example, if a user-defined emailed address is undeliverable for sending a notification, then allow the workflow to continue.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. The Publishing Date fields are displaying the time from an incorrect time zone

    Currently, Nintex for O-365 workflows are not able to parse the Date and Time from the following publishing fields - Scheduling Start Date/End Date. Any workflow email that includes these fields shall display incorrect time (due to time-zone difference between the Nintex App and the Site-Collection). We would need this to be corrected, as all the site-collections will not be in the same time-zone where the Nintex Apps are hosted.

  6. 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…

  7. 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.

  9. 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

    I have two Nintex workflow in separate SharePoint list (workflow1 in List1 and workflow2 in list2). workflow1 will update a column from ‘No’ to ‘Yes’ in list2, in this case wokflow2 should trigger because ‘Start when items are modified’ is enabled in workflow2. However it not happening. Any issue with settings?

  18. Enable fully transparant Do-Until (polling) functionality in all Nintex call web service actions

    Since we sometimes can not rely fully on the Microsoft REST service endpoints (for example for SharePoint Online) especially when looping those calls in a workflow, it would be very nice if Nintex Workflow added some automatic polling (Do-Until) to retry web services calls if they fail with some sort of 500 error. The same functionality I was aiming for will be introduced into Azure Logic Apps as can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7PyjKkkNu0. This should enhance the stability of our Workflow solutions

  19. Allow reordering variables on the workflow start form.

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