  1. Enable Date formatting functions

    Date format is one of the common use-case in Nintex workflows. It'll be great if Nintex can build this feature.

  3. Provide examples

    I wish you would provide examples of how to use Nintex functions. I am a visual learner and need to see examples of how something works. Your site is totally useless to me. For example, I want to see how the Switch function is used in a workflow. Your site does a horrible job of explaining how to use it. Nothing on our version matches what is out there in the community either, it is all outdated. Very frustrating

  4. Export action set

    The ability to export action sets and import them into other workflows would be a great piece of functionality for us to have!

  5. Add ServiceNow connector

    It would be great to have a serviceNow connector added as an action which allow you to add, update, delete and retrieve Servicenow data. This is already available in NWC but not yet in Nintex O365 Workflow

  6. Increase attachment size limit for Send An Email action

    When sending a email to an external email and attaching a file, the file size limit is a concern. Need a way to increase the limit.

  7. Create Modern Site Collections / Sites

    There is currently no support from the Office 365 Create Site or Office 365 Create Site Collection actions to create modern team or modern communication sites. This would be extremely valuable for site generation automation and controlling access to site generation while still giving users to option to user a modern site.

  8. Email Action

    Fix all the issues with the Email Action fonts and styles. You have to create the email in Notepad, then paste the text into the email action, set the preferred styles and fonts, add the attributes and hope that the email works....9 times out of 10, the email fonts are not correct

  9. Assign a task without sending notification email

    Currently, Nintex Workflow for Office 365 does not provide any out-of-the-box functionality to assign a task without sending notification email to the assigned people in the workflow. Can we have this feature to choose not to send email to the assigned people in the Workflow Tasks which was previously available in Nintex 2010 as option - "None".

  10. Support MFA for workflow

    I have read that Nintex workflows does not support users with MFA. i always get this " The username is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the username specified." for some users who may have MFA enabled. are there any alternatives we can do? when will this be supported?

  11. Connection Manager for "Web Request"

    Connection Manager is now available for Office 365. However, action "Web Request" was not included. I would suggest Nintex to enhance this.

    In parallel workflow for doc approval if there are two branches B1 & B2 then if B1 accepts doc and B2 rejects then again the doc to be modified then the B1 must not be triggered mail & assigned a task only B2 must be getting a task. Do a tool for that

  13. View all connections in Connection Manager

    Currently, in the Connection Manager, Administrators are only able to view Shared Connections.

    It would be great to have it where Administrators can view Shared and Personal Connections.

    Additionally, it is currently set where you can only see where the Share connection is located in the site. It would be great to see where it is located through out the tenant instead of each site.

  14. more options in wait for item update

    it would be very helpful if this action has the options available in nintex 2013/16 other than just equal to.
    for ex: not equal, to be empty, not empty, greater than, less han, contain, not contain etc.,

  16. inline functions

    Please allow me to use inline functions in a workflow. I cannot convert a string to all upper case without using 26 regular expression actions. Before I could use fn-toupper() when building a string.

  17. Ability to retrieve Azure AD Extended Attributes

    We need the ability to retrieve Azure AD extended attributes utilizing the Azure AD Get user details action. There is a legitimate case for getting details such as cost center or Employee ID.

  18. Run If fields should be switched

    We are finding the new Run If fields awkward. We think that the first two fields should be swtiched with the last field. I have an image attached as a sample of what it looks like today.

    Open for voting  ·  Jon Hardy responded

    The work around for this is to create a list with the appropriate columns to store the data one wants. Use update list to store the data and query list to retrieve the data.

  20. Copy to SharePoint Action required

    I have multiple site collections which store controlled master documents (Word format), once approved a PDF copy needs to also be made available from one central library location (open access for all staff). Copy to SharePoint action is sorely missed in O365.
