  2. 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.

  3. Debuggin information put into history

    The Document Generation often times produces an error and suspends the workflow. It would be very useful if the action would optionally dump the error and detail regarding the failure to the history. Currently there is no way to understand why the error has occurred.

  4. Please add error handling!

    Most actions should have error handling similar to a try/catch block in programming.

  5. Wait for the Workflow to complete

    I couldn't find a way to wait for a workflow started within the 'parent' workflow in the Nintex 365, I know that in the onpremises version it has this ability but I would need it in the Nintex 365...

    I tried to set and 'Wait for item change' with the column but this actually makes it hang forever as I think the workflow-column is showing 'Completed' but seems to be a different inner content the just a plain text so that the 'wait for' will wait forever.

  6. The ability to combine all documents into a single output file

    The ability to add a ‘folder’ or a group of files to the action which would effectively combine all those documents into a single output file.

    either fix the issue when creating documents based on Word Content Types, or allow Nintex Workflows to run as SP2010 Workflows, rather than SP2013 Workflows. SP Designer affords us, at least, the option to run as SP 2010 workflow when creating the workflow.

    ButtonPanel - handleXamlBuildError : SyntaxError: Unexpected token < in JSON at position 0

    Which is not informative.

  10. Add new activity for Nintec DocuSign Connector

    The Nintex DocuSign Connector currently doesn’t include a way to base 64 encode a document to pass it to the DocuSign web services. The DocuSign web service requires it to be base 64 encoded. It would be great to have an activity that base 64 encodes a document.

  11. 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?

  12. Pause until a certain time

    It would be nice if there were an action to pause the workflow until a certain time. This would complement the existing actions "Pause until Date" and "Pause for Duration". This is especially usefull as the 'On Prem' platform functionality to schedule a workflow is not (yet) available in O365 SPO.

  13. Support mutiple users with a single Office 365 update item permissions action

    In Office 365 you can enter multiple email addresses separated by a semicolon it would be nice to support this in the Office 365 update item permissions action.

  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. DocuSign - Download Signed Document and DocuSign Envelope as one PDF-file

    A couple DocuSign-related Actions enables the user to download the signed document (including the signatures) or the certificate of completion (envelope).

    While using the DocuSign App within SharePoint, it stores a signed document and the envelope as one single .PDF-file. DocuSign already combined that two documents, to it would be great if Nintex can provide that same functionality.

  17. Error if sending to invalid external email

    If using the action to send emails to an external email, I would like for there to be an option to error if the email being sent to is invalid. Otherwise, the workflow will continue as if the email was sent and no one will know that it wasn't sent.

  19. Favorite Actions

    Create a tab that lists favorite actions. This would allow to easily access actions that you use a lot (like log history), instead of having to scroll through all those tabs.

    Open for voting  ·  Jon Hardy responded

    Thank you for your suggestion. In the mean time try typing in one of the words of the action name in the search it will appear in the toolbox e.g. log for log to history. This will also avoid the need to scroll through tabs.

  20. Ability to CC/BCC an approval email

    I would like to be able to CC/BCC approval emails.
