  2. From Field in Send an Email

    It would be great to have a From field that supports dynamic references. Most business requirements want emails sent from a specific account, which is not supported in NW in O365!

    To support this requirement we’ve just release the following features

    - Specify a customizable sender display name for both email and task actions, we understand one of the main requests was to be able to supply a custom from email address however due to many of the limitations in the cloud we are currently unable to deliver this request and so hopefully being able to add a From display name will get you one step closer..

    - Add a customizable Reply To email address for the email action so you can control the email address when people hit reply.

    Hope you enjoy these features and be great to hear any feedback once you try them out.

  3. Workflow Errors

    There needs to be some notifcation to the designer or somoene if the workflow errors. When you have multiple workflows across multiple sites a notifcation is helpful in managing your workflows and any issues. This was available in on-prem why has it gone away?

    Hi All,

    We’ve just released the ability to capture comments from via LazyApproval, apart from that you can also easily store and retrieve those comments (including ones made via Nintex Forms or directly via the task) into a new task action variable (Task comments).

    For those who are specifically interested in capturing from LazyApproval the way you do is by supplying the outcome separated by a comma and then the comments .e.g. ‘Rejected, Need more detail before can approve’.

    Check it out and let me know what you think…

    Cheers, Rick

  5. Version Control

    It would be nice to have version control. Its a great feature that is missing from the on-perm world.

  6. Add custom permission levels for "Office 365 update item permissions" action

    At this time the "Office 365 update item permissions" supports default permission levels only. It would be nice to be able to select or just type in the name of a custom permission level to be assigned to the workflow item that has been added to the site/sitecollection permission levels.

    Reinstating this request as it is clear that delegation is required and not escalation.

  8. Copy List Item

    The ability create copies of current list items (workflow context) should be included.

    Hi Guys,

    We are just planing out a new Copy Item action which will also look to support an option to include attachments. Beyond this are there any other requirements that you would need from a copy item action?

    Cheers, Rick

    Bring the inline functions back

  10. Slow Environment

    Working in the O365 version is excruciating. Forms are bad enough, however workflows are extremely slow. Opening/closing/saving actions, saving/publishing any size workflow takes a ridiculous amount of time. We are migrating approx. 80 workflows. This will take a year at the speed this system works. And that's not counting all the new forms we are constantly building. Can the performance of the O365 environment please be improved.

    Hi All,

    This is currently a SharePoint limitation, however we have made sure that our lazy approval feature only allows people who are assigned a task to specify an outcome.

    As a workaround a user is able to query the task list to see who was assigned the task and who modified the task. We are looking at how make the task querying process easier. Thanks.

  14. Print form to PDF action in Workflow

    Within the Nintex Forms there is now a Print to PDF function that was released last year however it would nice if that could be an action item in the workflow to allow for capture of form in PDF to be emailed as an attachment with the 'Send an Email' action. Ideal for scenario's where form may be used by HR that require documented records to be kept on file not just SharePoint lists.

    Have looked at using Document Generation however there are many collapsing sections in my form that may or may not need to be captured so the…

  15. Wait for field change in current item - multiple values with OR

    I would like to be able to say "wait for the field to change to this value OR that value, then do this action" - there is currently no option for entering multiple values.

    Please have a look at the condition builder just released as part of conditional start. Is this the kind of condition builder that you need in “wait for field change in current item” ?

    planned  ·  Roanna Gunaratnam responded

    Hi All,
    we have delivered users the capability to action tasks from within their email by clicking a button. This feature is currently available on O365 Mail and Outlook 2016 Version 17.10 (Build 8201.1000) or higher.

    We utilised Microsoft’s Actionable messages feature to deliver this capability, and they plan to rolled out this feature on Outlook mobile and Outlook for Mac early next year. Once they have delivered this feature we will also make this capability available on Outlook Mobile and Outlook for Mac.

  19. End/terminate workflow should cleanup and delete any tasks

    When you click 'end workflow' to terminate a workflow or use the terminate workflow actions, any active workflow tasks should be deleted/cancelled as per the on premise product. Understand this is due to workflow manager behaviour but could it be built into Nintex even if only via the Nintex terminate workflow action?
