  1. Zoom-in, Zoom-out

    It's not user friendly to view a Workflow if it contains quite a few actions.

    The ability to add email attachments to an email has been added to service

  3. Delete or remove a workflow from a list

    The possibility to remove or delete a workflow from a list or site is not available at the moment.

    It would be better to be able to delete workflows instead of unticking all starting options.

    I am pleased to ssy we released Task Form Integration with Nintex Forms recently that allows you to customise task forms with Nintex Forms to your exact needs.

  7. UDA support

    We're having to rely pretty heavily on web service calls to supplement the currently available action set. It would save an inordinate amount of time if we could leverage UDAs to interact with these in a more structured fashion.

    Barring that, since Action Sets are going to be implemented in an upcoming release will these support the snippet feature? Injecting a pre-build snippet would give us the same time savings but doesn't result in such a clean workflow.

  8. Default workflow on edit

    When accessing designer from a SharePoint list, the workflow attached to the list does not automatically load in designer. Please have the designer load the workflow associated with the current object on Designer load.

    Thanks for your feedback. We have released the new workflow gallery feature today that will help in choosing workflows for editing.

  9. Help Pages

    When you are configuring an action you can go to the help page for example : http://help.nintex.com/en-US/O365/Default.htm#O365WorkFlow/Workflow Actions - STD/Query XML.htm?Highlight=XML . It 'd be great to have a simple simple of configuration for each action

    Thanks for the feedback. We recently updated the help to provide simpler navigation to each action

  10. Schedule Site Workflow

    I often find nearly Site Workflows I create need to be scheduled as they are for batch processing, polling lists, sending 'Near due' notifications and other related tasks.

    At the moment, my understanding is that you have to loop indefinitely and a delay for action to mimic a schedule. I.e. complete some actions every 2 hours.

    It's just a bit hacky and a tough sell to customers.

  11. Conditional Start

    In Workflow 2010/2013 on premise when setting automatic start for create/modify as well as Yes and No we also have Conditional. We can then use a condition builder to specify eg. column values including what they used to be and what they are now. Can we have this in Workflow O365.
    I know that this has already been asked for but it looks like the requirement wasn't clear

    Hi All,

    This has been released into service and is ready to use

  13. Filter action

    Since conditional starts are still under review, the addition of a filter action would greatly enhance Nintex Workflow for Office 365.

  14. Provide Lables

    Please allow the use of labels when configuring workflows in O365. Those are incredibly useful when building the workflow in order to see exactly where you are and what the actions and conditions are.

    There are several string manipulation actions available in the operations menu for string identification and splitting.

  17. Switch Action

    It would be great if you could create a switch action so that a field could be evaluated and have branches that you can implement business process dependent on the value selected. Similar to the functionality available in on Prem. You currently could do this a few ways but detailed examples become very messy.

    This action was released in the February release.

  19. Please enter tooltip for each workflow

    It would be great if you could have a tooltip text for each workflow action describing the usage and link it to online help page. I'm not able to find some of the workflow actions usage under online help.

    You can access the specific help for an individual action by dragging it on the canvas, opening the configuration and clicking on help. Once your finished, undo the action to remove it.

  20. Build Dynamic String

    Really missing the Build Dynamic String and all it's inline functions in O365!
