  2. '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.

  3. send to multiple signers with Docusign connectors

    When using the DocuSign populate template the product currently only allows us to input one signer, this is not useful if there is two or more signers.

  5. 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!

  7. 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.

  8. Add an action to add new (apps) Lists or Doc libraries to site

    We are programmatically create lists/libraries for a specific secure process. We used to be able to do so on prem, but with O365 we lost this ability. Please make 0365 as powerful as onprem ASAP to allow a migration.

  10. Enhance the Salesforce Connectors


    1. Allow a user to paste in credentials and test to ensure the credentials are correct without having to save and publish the workflow.

    2. Have a query that pulls in the Salesforce objects available based on the permissions from #1.

    3. Display the objects' fields based on the object type selected

    Perhaps create a unique designer area for managing Salesforce data. Most users who may need to interact with a Salesforce connector may not know how to grab the correct fields and thus not want to build a workflow using the action.

  11. Assigend tasks are not deleted if a workflow is terminated.

    Assigned tasks must be deleted/canceled as well, so the user can not approve/reject tasks which are already terminated.

  13. Save and Continue option for Task Form

    Please add a Save and Continue button for Task Forms within Nintex Workflow, similar to what is available in Nintex Forms.

    Example: Manager fills out form that creates list item, starts workflow, and assigns task to employee that is due in 2 weeks. The employee receives an email notification with a link to complete their assignment (task form), however it is quite lengthy and will need to fill it out in several sessions. The task form has validation rules to hide and require certain fields. Save and Continue should not cause validation to occur. Only Save and Submit.

  14. Option to use External Email for "Assign a Task" without LazyApproval

    Currently, when you do the "Assign a Task" action and use Lazy Approval, it will send from the No-Reply external email. If you don't use LazyApproval, it will use the build-in SharePoint O365 email address (and will come from the Site Name).

    We have several processes that mix LazyApproval and non-LazyApproval, and actions are going to users from different email addresses, causing a bit of confusion.

    Request is either (1) add the ability to use External Email for the Assign a Task action when LazyApproval is NOT used, or (2) come up with a way to display the Site Title…

  15. Need cross site workflow/actions

    I think it's extremely important that Nintex Workflows can perform cross site actions such as updating items in another site using the standard actions. Nintex Workflow, being the leading SharePoint workflow add-on, really should provide this no-braining functionality. Thank you.

  16. A Create Group Action

    I really like the Create Site Action, but it needs to be used in association with a 'Create Group' Action and a 'Assign User to Group' Action. Otherwise the 'Create Site' action is of little use in my opinion :)

    That way you could fully automate site creation & improve Sharepoint governance by ensuring when a site is created, you can assign the perfect set of Groups and Permissions

  17. Office 365 XML Decode function

    In Nintex on-prem there is a function to decode XML values, so that special characters are no longer encoded, but shown as correct (eg. é, è, à,...).
    In Office 365 this is not available, but you have to convert each value via a replace action (for each known special character). Is it possible to have an action which can decode the XML an easier way?

  18. Post Photo on Yammer

    The Yammer Message action should allow for the uploading of images to either users or groups. This is supported by both the Facebook and Twitter action, but not Yammer.

  19. Line Breaks in MultiLine Plaintext Textboxes?

    How about supporting the ability to do new lines in multi-line plain text textboxes?

    An example would be a comments field, where multiple comments are entered. You should be able to use the Regular Expression action to replace a temporary character (eg ~) where you want the line break to be, with \r\n. The Regular Expression action even tells you to use .NET syntax, which is \r\n but it doesn't work.

    I've googled and googled for a solution but can't find a solution for Nintex 365. Seems like such a simple thing but it can't be done, at least not…

  20. Restrict External Email

    It is fantastic that Nintex enabled its users to send email to people outside of an Office 365 tenant. However, there is no way to block/stop/prevent that from occurring, if such an action is in violation of a company's policies.

    Therefore, it would be great if there was a checkbox that allowed that function to be disabled for a given customer's tenant (but still permit the option to use attachments for internal users).
