  1. Take preservation/retention policy into account

    When retention policy is activated on O365, it's not possible to delete Nintex workflows. It's also not possible to uninstall the O365 Workflow and Forms app from a site.
    The only solution is to deactivate retention policy

  4. Associate site to a hub

    There is currently no field in the Office 365 Create Site Collection action to save hub information to the SharePoint admin center. I'd like a user to be able to select a hub from a form and have that value be saved to the SharePoint admin center. Currently, I have log into the SharePoint admin center after the site has been created and manually select a hub.

  5. Office 365 Create Site Collection action

    Can you add the Team site (no Office 365 group) to the Template drop down menu in the Office 365 Create Site Collection Action? The only template that is available is the Custom - Select template later... option. The site gets created but I still have to log into SharePoint Admin Center and select a template.

  6. add an option to search for an action within workflow

    imagine a giant workflow, say, 200 + actions. it has lots of paths, all collapsed, that has action sets withing action sets within parallel tasks and so on

    then you need to correct a specific action.

    would be nice if we could simply find an action by name?

  8. Inserting hyperlink fields into emails and tasks

    When you take a sharepoint hyperlink field and put it into a task form or email, by default the value of the field is converted to string and looks like this:
    Salesforce - from side bar
    {"__metadata":{"type":"SP.FieldUrlValue"},"Description":"https:\/\/na67.lightning.force.com\/lightning\/r\/Opportunity\/0060z00001wLhd7AAC\/view","Url":"https:\/\/na67.lightning.force.com\/lightning\/r\/Opportunity\/0060z00001wLhd7AAC\/view"}

    By default, it should take the display text of the hyperlink and build a link out of it with the URL

  9. Ability to customize LazyApproval informing that the reply could not be interpreted.

    Due to the business requirement that Comment is mandatory, when the reviewer does not include the comment, the workflow with category as the reply can not be interpreted and sent the standard email

    Your response was not able to be interpreted. Please try again with a clear indication of your chosen outcome.
    Valid outcomes for this task are:


    • Approve

    • Reject

    That will be useful if customer can customize the email so that the user understand that the issue is with the comment being mandatory.

  10. Use OAuth 2.0 for all connections

    Because we use Federation with an external authentication provider, our users do not know the AAD password of their associated account. Consequently, the Basic (username and password) authentication method will not work for us. Can we convert all Basic auth connection types to use OAuth 2.0 instead?

  11. Email Teams Channel with Task and/or Email Notification

    I have seen that you can email a Teams Channel by putting the email of the channel in the Settings to notify workflow owner when a workflow fails in Nintex 365 and works as expected. However it would be cool if you could not only send an email notification but a Task to a O365 Teams Channel (neither option worked in my tests) I currently get an error when sending that says email address is not valid.

  12. Use Workflow-Connections for Exchange-Online actions

    Not yet all connections are making use of the workflow-connection-manager. To have

    a) a consistent workflow-design experience
    b) to centrally manage connections across workflows
    c) to leverage modern authentication

    refit the Exchange-Online actions to use the connection-manager

  13. office 365 Update Items should fail gracefully

    If the action, Office 365 Update Items cannot find the item you are looking for, the whole workflow fails, rather than simply updating 0 rows. You have a nice variable to return yes if rows are updated, but the workflow fails if no rows are updated.

  15. My Approvals web part or equivalent

    Nintex for Sharepoint comes with a handy My Approvals web part. Can we have that for Sharepoint Online? It might not be more than just a formatting of a task list, no?

  17. Email to Shared Mailbox

    I'd like to be able to send an email notification or lazy approval task to a shared mailbox. This is a big show stopper at the moment that we're having to use Flow for.

  18. Give specific Workflow actions an other color in the designer

    Hi Nintex,

    I would like to have the posibility to mark a workflow action with a color (so that I as a designer know it's an important action). I have workflows which i use on different environments. I use actions with site/library specific parameters, which I have to change sometimes. If I could give them a color I would know right away that I have to check these actions in stead of going through the whole workflow.
    It could also be very helpful in the development phase of a project.

  20. Report on Billable Acctions

    When viewing workflows on the Workflow Gallery page, it would be helpful to see the count of Billable Actions and Total Actions.
