  1. office 365 Update Items should fail gracefully

    If the action, Office 365 Update Items cannot find the item you are looking for, the whole workflow fails, rather than simply updating 0 rows. You have a nice variable to return yes if rows are updated, but the workflow fails if no rows are updated.

  2. Modified Start Condition on People fields does not start workflow

    Setting a modified start condition in the workflow Settings does not trigger the workflow to start when the document library item is modified (a document set). The modified start condition compares the values of two fields on the document library item and should start the workflow if they are not equal. The two fields being compared are People fields with multiple selctions possible.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. Disabling Header and Footer in Notification Message in SharePoint Online

    We are trying to figure out how to remove headers from emails from the workflow in SharePoint online. I see you have a KB article:

    https://support.nintex.com/SharePoint/Workflow/Disabling_Header_and_Footer_in_Notification_Message

    But that appears to only be for SharePoint on-prem. How do we disable them in SharePoint online?

    I opened case number 00246103 and they suggested I post here. They are still researching. I would call this a feature request.

    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

  7. 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

  8. Error evaluating choice column of type checkbox

    Hi,

    I am currently experiencing issues with evaluating a choice column that is a checkbox which allows multiple selection.

    When I use the conditional branch action to evaluate this column I receive an error message during run time regardless of whether I use equals to or contains.

    It seems like even if I try to set that column in a variable (either text or dictionary) and then attempt to log it to the history list, it will also produce the error.

    Thanks

  9. 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.

  11. 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

  16. 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.

  17. Need a way to test user credentials and connections

    Need a way to test user credentials and connections. Workflow keeps indicating bad username format or password or something and I can't make sense of if it is the connection or the parameter to the query.

  18. Currency math operations

    I can't do simple math operations on currency columns because they get treated like unparsable strings.

    "$100" * 1.43 = Exception casting "$100" to type double.

    Please provide a way to not have "$" as part of the value................

  19. 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.
