  2. Daylight Saving Time Support

    Currently our Site workflows have been firing an hour early due to Daylight Saving Time ending for this year. This is apparently not a bug for some reason, and should be considered such.

  4. Runtime Performance Issues

    I am in the middle of developing a workflow, and when the workflow hits an "O365" action, it freezes for several minutes. HUGE performance issue!!

  5. The Publishing Date fields are displaying the time from an incorrect time zone

    Currently, Nintex for O-365 workflows are not able to parse the Date and Time from the following publishing fields - Scheduling Start Date/End Date. Any workflow email that includes these fields shall display incorrect time (due to time-zone difference between the Nintex App and the Site-Collection). We would need this to be corrected, as all the site-collections will not be in the same time-zone where the Nintex Apps are hosted.

  6. Allow reordering variables on the workflow start form.

    Currently, workflow variables are displayed in the order they are created, which is inflexible.

  7. Approve/Reject buttons from email on mobile devices

    I added a comment to this idea: https://nintex.uservoice.com/forums/218291-3-nintex-workflow-for-office-365/suggestions/5740552-email-notifications-having-approve-reject-bu, but not sure if the comments are being monitored since it is marked as completed.

    Based on my clients' feedback, the greatest need for button approval via email is from mobile devices. When I access the LazyApproval email from my iPhone, the actionable buttons are not there.

    Side note: The actionable message buttons are available via my iPhone for Flow tasks.

  8. Enhance Start Workflow action to handle running instances

    The behaviour of the Start Workflow action is to suspend the originating workflow if an instance of the called workflow already exists for the list item.

    Proposed is an enhancement to either:
    1. allow the Start Workflow action to be configured such that the originating workflow is allowed to continue
    or
    2. introduce a 'Check Workflow' action that returns a value to indicate if if an instance of a workflow exists for a list item

  10. Office 365 upload file error handling

    WHen you use Office 365 upload file, if the site does not exist the workflow gets suspended. Testing for the site and library existence is not trivil. Please add some error handling to this action so that it returns No if the site does not exist, or Nintex does not have access, rather than suspending the workflow.

  11. Skip action on error

    Allow the option to skip an action if an error occurs while performing it. For example, if a user-defined emailed address is undeliverable for sending a notification, then allow the workflow to continue.

  12. Enable fully transparant Do-Until (polling) functionality in all Nintex call web service actions

    Since we sometimes can not rely fully on the Microsoft REST service endpoints (for example for SharePoint Online) especially when looping those calls in a workflow, it would be very nice if Nintex Workflow added some automatic polling (Do-Until) to retry web services calls if they fail with some sort of 500 error. The same functionality I was aiming for will be introduced into Azure Logic Apps as can be viewed here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J7PyjKkkNu0. This should enhance the stability of our Workflow solutions

  14. Log component workflow history to caller workflow history

    Right now I can't find any way to see the history of a component workflow called from another workflow. If possible it'd be great to have component workflows log to the caller's history.

  17. Be more specific with the errors

    I have received some errors where I don't know what to do, because the error is not clear and I can't find anything in internet,
    For example: EventAggregator. What is that? What does it mean? What should I do?

  19. No way to stop workflows from starting automatically when item is created

    I have three workflows for one list, all are set not to start when an item is created in the list. Issue is that all three workflows start automatically no matter what setting is selected.

    Having options to start workflow when item created, updated, or manual are useless if they all run automatically.

  20. Start when items are modified

    I have two Nintex workflow in separate SharePoint list (workflow1 in List1 and workflow2 in list2). workflow1 will update a column from ‘No’ to ‘Yes’ in list2, in this case wokflow2 should trigger because ‘Start when items are modified’ is enabled in workflow2. However it not happening. Any issue with settings?
