  1. 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.

  3. 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!

  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. 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.

  9. 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. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. 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).

  18. 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.

  19. Template matching with DocuSign using Nintex Workflow action

    We will like to use Nintex Workflow DocuSign actions and to be able to make use of the automatic template matching.
    It looks like this is not possible with Nintex Workflow for Office 365, Version: 1.0.4.3 as this feature is not implemented.

    Automatic template matching compares the files that you upload with all previously saved templates. Based on the sensitivity setting you select, if the match is close enough, you can choose to apply the matching template to your document, either automatically or with a notification. When you apply a matched template, all aspects of the template are applied to…
