  2. 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…

  3. Template matching with DocuSign using Nintex Workflow action

    We will like to use Nintex Workflow DocuSign actions and to be able to make use of the automatic template matching.
    It looks like this is not possible with Nintex Workflow for Office 365, Version: 1.0.4.3 as this feature is not implemented.

    Automatic template matching compares the files that you upload with all previously saved templates. Based on the sensitivity setting you select, if the match is close enough, you can choose to apply the matching template to your document, either automatically or with a notification. When you apply a matched template, all aspects of the template are applied to…

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Central Place to terminate Suspended workflows either at list or site level

    Can we get a central place within nintex online to terminate or retry suspended workflows?
    Use case: we have a list, managed by users, that syncs specific info from one list to another. The source list had a choice column change and thus has started suspending wf's because users did not make sure destination choice column contained the same values. Now we have 200+ suspended workflows in the source list. Due to the nature of a suspended wf, we cannot just kick off a new on those items, even after the issue with the choice values are fixed between the…

  10. Create Modern Site Collections / Sites

    There is currently no support from the Office 365 Create Site or Office 365 Create Site Collection actions to create modern team or modern communication sites. This would be extremely valuable for site generation automation and controlling access to site generation while still giving users to option to user a modern site.

  11. 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

  13. Add ServiceNow connector

    It would be great to have a serviceNow connector added as an action which allow you to add, update, delete and retrieve Servicenow data. This is already available in NWC but not yet in Nintex O365 Workflow

  14. 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?

  16. 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.

  20. inline functions

    Please allow me to use inline functions in a workflow. I cannot convert a string to all upper case without using 26 regular expression actions. Before I could use fn-toupper() when building a string.
