  1. Populate collection-variable from item

    When using the "set variable" action I can populate any list-field into a variable.

    However: if the field is of type "choice" or "lookup" and the field allows multiple values, I would assume that I could populate a collection, containing all values of my "multi-choice" or "multi-lookup" field.

    However, this is not the case. Instead a choice column with multiple values creates a JSON-string suggesting collection-of-strings. But this is just a string. Similar for lookups.

    Instead I have to query the list and return the result into a collection. This way I get a collection of values - why can't…

  2. Double (or triple) signature on DocuSign

    When sending a document to DocuSign for signature, it is only possible to send it to a single signer, unless you use the NWC connector (that allows several signers).
    But using NWC makes us use 2 workflows instead of 1, and oblige us to send the document to a cloud storage service) .

    The O365 action should also allow 2 or more signers

  3. Support MFA for workflow

    I have read that Nintex workflows does not support users with MFA. i always get this " The username is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the username specified." for some users who may have MFA enabled. are there any alternatives we can do? when will this be supported?

  4. Custom Nintex Live Services Email to Users

    When using the Yammer Post action, it send the users posting an email to authorization to post and is a generic requests which is very confusing for end users and they may not have an idea why this is being sent or from what process.

    Allow the addition of custom message, or customization of email.

  5. Why do calculations only accept Numbers as output type?

    I do a calculation (multiply) on two integers and I can only have number type as output.
    I though need an integer as output type because I need this integer to be used as number of months in a date add action later on, and this input only accepts integers.

  7. 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.

  8. DocuSign SPO Actions need connection

    We need the ability to store the credential of the authorizing user. This will enable the workflows to process seamlessly without waiting for them to get the email and then authorize.

    We lose automation by having to send an email to someone to approve the action.

  11. when comparing with person field - cannot choose person

    when I'm trying to make a comparison of field "modified by" , I cannot put in speciefic person, like in Nintex Workflow 2010, in other words field is not a peoplepicker, just a singleline text field. So I cannot choose person to compare.

  12. Workflow Actions for Site Collection Administration

    Would be great to have more workflow actions for site collection administration. Thinking about actions like "Set site collection administrator" or "Set sharing capabilities"

  14. office 365 attachments

    I would like to select what attachments I would like to send in a both an email and a task. This would work just like On Prem 2016 where I can click the add attachment link and choose what i want to include in different emails or task notifications.

  15. Confirmation or Error when Workflow is trusted

    In Workflow Settings-->General, clicking on "Grant access to Workflow" then "Trust it" does not result in a confirmation that it was completed successfully or an error that it was unable to complete because I am not a tenant administrator. Also, once the grant has completed successfully, re-entering this screen should show that it has already been granted Trusted access. If I enter this screen without tenant administrator rights then I should get a warning to that fact and be only able to review whether the Trusted procedure has been completed or not.

  16. Email Action - Rich Text Field Links Broken

    Currently if email action if you have a multi line rich text editor field and it contains links to current SharePoint sites or materials, those links are truncated to relative paths versus using the absolute paths. The generated email then has broken links. The email action should recognize this and include the absolute path of the item.

  17. Yammer Post Action update capability

    I really wish we could pass through Email addresses so users are tagged in the post and sent a notification.

    Also post on behalf of another user without those confusing authorization messages.

  18. Choosing workflow to start

    It would be great to have dropdown menu with existing list or site workflows depending on choosen workflow type within "Start workflow" action, or sorta lookup on list of workflows. Because it can prevent mistypings, and would be rather convenient.

  20. Office 365 Stop Sharing Action

    It would be nice to have an action to stop sharing a list item or document with someone.

    We have the set permissions action and that works nice, but this goes one step further and removes any custom permissions done with Sharing because that is different that just setting permissions because admin can still have access through the sharing.
