  1. Required fields for workflow start parameter

    At the moment it is not possible to set a workflow start variable to "required". This function is highly needed.

  3. Update Connection details validates connection

    It seems when creating or modifying the connection credentials the connect button only saves the entries and does not try to test the connection. Is this true or am I missing something. Thanks

  4. 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 Nothing on our version matches what is out there in the community either, it is all outdated.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

  5. Update list item catch exceptions / ignore errors

    When updating multiple list items for example tasks it would be usefull to have a ignore errors checkbox to resume with the workflow if the update list item can't find the item. This would help because tasks disappear when 1 of 3 tasks is approved. But a parallel loop which updates the tasks with information still tries to find and update all 3 tasks but only 1 is still there. Workflow then crashes.

  6. Link to item in My Workflow Task List Webpart

    Need to be able to have a link to the item the workflow is running on in the task list. Many people use My Workflow Tasks to access the items to review and then approve or reject.

  7. Unable to import same Workflow settings on "Set Workflow Variable" configured with "List Lookup" on a different site collection.

    Unable to import same Workflow settings on "Set Workflow Variable" configured with "List Lookup" on a different site collection. As compares if we use "Update List Item" Workflow action configured with "List Lookup" the settings are imported with no problem.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  16. docusign download all documents in the envelope

    Allow the DocuSign Action "download document" to download all of the documents associated with the envelope. The difference would be to append Combined to the REST call that is already being sent. It would be and easy fix.
    https://docs.docusign.com/esign/restapi/Envelopes/EnvelopeDocuments/get/

    Example: GET /restapi/v2/accounts/1703061/envelopes/44efc9e6-915e-4b1d-9b54-801410d6922d/documents/combined

  18. Office 365 update item permissions: allow tenant security group

    In the "Office 365 update item permissions" action, we have availabity to configure user (email) or SharePoint group name (one or several) but it is not possible to register a security group which has been declare at the tenant level (when we configure this kind of group, the workflow is suspended and the result is "Failed to resolve user xxx" and issue is the same for a group name or email group name).

    It will be interesting to implement this feature to avoid the creation of SharePoint group in the website and duplicate information between web and tenant.

  19. Personal connections in Connection Manager

    From the governance perspective, personal connections should be disabled by default. Currently it must be manually disabled on each site/subs-site.

    Recommended path:
    1. Personal connections must be disabled by default
    2. Need basis site owners may decide to enable it
    3. This would encourage the use of *shared connections*

  20. 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.
