  1. Ability to execute javascript code

    It would be extremely useful to have an action allowing execution of javascript code. That would be helpful for example to handle actions/ functions not present in Nintex already. I don't know if this is doable, but maybe? It is probably pretty complex for the Nintex engine to check, whether the code in the action is executed or not, so that Workflow can move to a next action, but still such feature would really be helpful :)

  2. Update User Profile Action. Nuff Said.

    It would be nice to have an action to update user profiles. Currently the only way is to use a SOAP web service. This would be very useful in onboarding/offboarding, mass updates when titles,department names, etc.. change.

  3. Move list item into recycle bin when delete

    Good to have the possibility to choose (by parameter for example) whether list item should be permanently deleted or moved to recycle bin.

  5. Office 365 un-assign license action missing

    Currently there exists an action to assign an office 365 license to a user. However, there is no action to remove a license from a user. I'd like to be able to do this via workflow. This would be useful for off-boarding users, as well as writing workflows to transfer licenses from one user to another when needed.

  6. Task email to send to Mailbox

    It would be very handy to include the ability to send a Task email to a mailbox. I understand that a task needs to be assigned to users, but the ability to send the task email to an email address and not to assignee's would cut down on email clutter when a task is assigned to a group of users but only needs to be completed by one user.

  7. Ability to store binary data in variables and pass them in Web Request action

    Currently when trying to put binary data (ex. retrieved using SharePoint API binary data of the file from library) in a text variable or to use directly in "Web Request" action some information is lost (I suppose Nintex is not supporting null bits [0x00] and replaces them with spaces [0x20] or cuts them off). Because of that, when trying to create a new file in a different library or when trying to call Nintex O365 REST API to create a workflow, the results are incorrect - the created file is corrupted and API returns errors.

    It would be really nice…

  8. Really need a replacement for PadLeft.

    If InLine functions are not being replaced in 0365 (which I really hope they are), how about more actions to help with common functions like padding out variable for use in Document title etc..

  10. Ability to make comments optional/mandatory for task outcomes

    In SharePoint On-premises a power-user have the ability to make Comments mandatory or optional for each task-outcome. This feature is not available in Nintex Online.

    it will be great if Nintex can enable same for Online as this will help power users.

  11. 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

  12. Wait for change in specific List Item

    The current 'Wait for Event in List Item' runs every time an item is added or changed in the current list. The GUID in that action is an output.

    It would be great to have an action where the GUID is the input, so the action only runs when an item with that specific GUID is changed.

  14. Calculated columns do not show up in Query list filter conditions

    While update items shows calculated columns in the filter conditions, query list does not. It seems like a bug!

    Kindly review and let us know.

  15. Email distribution groups

    Hi, thanks for adding the ability to email external email addresses! I thought this would work for internal distribution groups as well, but that seems to not be the case. It would be fabulous if we could do this (we have a forwarding account set up for it now, but it's a pain).

  16. Send document to repository should be able to work cross site

    The office 365 Send document to repository action should be capable of taking a document from a document library and moving the document into a repository on another site.

  17. Populate task id as soon as the task is created

    Essentially the same request (except for Nintex Workflow for Office 365) as done by Jimbo Alba at:
    http://nintex.uservoice.com/forums/229405-1-nintex-workflow-for-sharepoint/suggestions/6440022-populate-task-id-as-soon-as-the-task-is-created

    All task actions can populate a task id variable but usually populate the variable only after the task is completed by the assigned user. I would like to recommend that this behavior be changed so that the task id variable is populated when the task item is created and assigned. This way I can query the task item even before it's task action is completed.

    Hi all! Jason, In your scenario could you give me more details on what you are trying to do with the task ID, before the task is completed? Thanks.

  18. Manual start of site workflows

    Currently Nintex Online does not allow a way to toggle manual start for site workflows.

    Case: As Nintex on-prem has this setting, any site workflow with such settings gets migrated as-is. As tools like Sharegate does not have a way to reset the flag, the migrated workflows could never be run manually.

  20. 'Exists in Collection' Action should return the indexes as well as true/false

    There should be an option to return all of the indexes, or the index of the first result, where this action finds an item in the collection. This would help greatly in processing collections and improving execution time.
