  1. Email notifications having "Approve" & "Reject" buttons, instead of just hyperlinks.

    It would be nice if the email notifications sent with a "Request Approval" activity and "Assign Flexi Task" activity, could have "Approve" and "Reject" buttons instead of hyperlinks.

    Hi All,

    This capability is now available on O365, please refer the our blog: https://community.nintex.com/blogs/NintexProductBlog/2017/10/04/actionable-messages-in-nintex-workflow-for-office-365.

    Since we have leveraged Microsoft’s actionable messages to build this feature therefore it will initially be available to users of Outlook online and Outlook 2016 Version 17.10 (Build 8201.1000), however Microsoft do plan to roll this feature out on Outlook for Mac and Outlook for mobile next year.

  2. For Each

    It would be nice to have a a for each logic action similar to on prem as this would allow greater flexibility

    Nintex Workflow provides an Export / Import capability for migrating workflow designs between sites and tenants.

  4. Start workflow

    It would be great to have a start workflow action rather than having to utilization a web service action.

    I am pleased to confirm actions to delete drafts and versions were released in Decmeber.

  6. Yes/No labels are not visible

    When I add a conditional action into the workflow I can't see the Yes/No labels by the side of the conditional icon, So I dont know what side goes the "yes" actions or the "no" actions

  7. Ability to Create a Site Collection

    SharePoint architecture is starting to evolve into a flatter build for security and scalability purposes. For instance, companies with customers who log into SharePoint typically prefer to keep them in separate site collections for branding, security and overall confidence in separation of content. Similar to the action 'Office 365 Create Site', it would be nice to have a 'Office 365 Create Site Collection'

    The ability to Provision and Deprovision a Site Collection will be released in the upcoming January release for Enterprise users.

  8. Query List action within current context

    It would be good to have a Query List action (similar to the Office 365 Query List action) but that is scoped to current context, so you do not have to provide URL, username, password etc. to query a list on the current site in a site scoped workflow.

    Very similar to that we have current context scoped actions for Create Item and Update Item etc.

    This has now been delivered as “Query List” in addition to the Office 365 Query List.

    Thanks for the feedback. Our Query List action is provided via Nintex Live and requires some of that information to be able to talk back to Office 365. We are actively looking at ways of making that configuration experience better and will take this on board.

  9. conditional branch

    cannot compare with operation "and" or operation "or" (conditional 1 and conditional 2; conditional 1 or conditional 2)

  12. Conditional Branch indication on which branch is true and which is false

    On the Conditional Branch action is does not show which branch is true and which is false. And since it is currently not possible for users to set labels on it, it can be difficult

    Hi,

    The action Office 365 Create Site contains old templates from SP2010 such as the meeting workspace. More important, I am missing the project site template.

    Nintex Workflow for Office 365 uses the new workflow manager workflow engine and the constructs within.

    With regards to the collection variable type, the new Dictionary variable type provides the same functionality and is more powerful.

    Yes / No can be achieved by the Boolean variable type

  15. Add action for SharePoint Content Approval

    Would like to know if there is a good method for interacting with the SharePoint Approve/Reject (aka: moderationStatus) of an item. I would like to use this to approve/reject on my approval workflow instead of via a Workflow Task.

    Currently I have a task, but once it is completed, the moderationstatus isn't updated to reflect content approval.

  19. Create Site - Use Custom Template

    For the "Create Site" Action, it is not possible to select a custom site template from the current site collection. It would be great if this could be included, as organisations often have a custom template (e.g. for Teams or Projects) that they want to use

    The Office 365 Create Site action was updated recently in include support for Custom Site Templates.

  20. Support for calling ASMX web services

    The HTTP Call Web Service action now supports only REST services. We need to be able to call ASMX web services, just like we did in on-prem.
