    Thanks for your feedback. We announced our intended support for APIS in 365 at WPC. Please see the dedicated API forum on UserVoice for further info

  2. Copy Attachment to Doc Library

    Similar to the On-Prem action. Being able to copy List attachments to a document library with associated metadata if columns exist

  3. Update document set or folder with Update Item or Update Item Permissions

    The O365 Update Item is restricted specifically to documents or items, it cannot actually update a Document Set or Folder Item. There are many cases where we need this specifically with Document Sets. The CAML query used to select a Document Set does not work in Nintex, though it works in PowerShell, CSOM, Javascript, REST, etc.

  4. Export to PDF/Graphical

    It would be very nice if you could export the whole workflow to a PDF or other format, for easy documentation or printing.

  5. Ability to retrieve Azure AD Extended Attributes

    We need the ability to retrieve Azure AD extended attributes utilizing the Azure AD Get user details action. There is a legitimate case for getting details such as cost center or Employee ID.

  6. DocuSign Single Sign-On Integration

    DocuSign actions should include support for Single Sign-On between DocuSign and Office 365. Currently, to authenticate a DocuSign user that utilizes Single Sign-On they must be added to an exceptions list, and it is unrealistic to add all users to the exceptions list as this defeats the purpose of using Single Sign-On.

  7. Add "contains" and others to "Run if"-Action

    An additional "contains" test would be great to test in Run if statements for example if value is part of a multiple choice field.

    If possible also "starts with", "is empty", "does not contain" would be very helpful additional operators.

  8. Connection Manager for "Web Request"

    Connection Manager is now available for Office 365. However, action "Web Request" was not included. I would suggest Nintex to enhance this.

  9. Enable Date formatting functions

    Date format is one of the common use-case in Nintex workflows. It'll be great if Nintex can build this feature.

  10. Multi-factor authentication support for live actions.

    Currently, none of the Nintex live actions support any multi-factor authentication. More and more clients are switching to this level of security and the lack of this support greatly inhibits our feature offerings. None of the live action advantages are available and clients can't switch to multi-factor authentication without breaking workflows that utilize these features.

    With the work on a “Connection manager” MFA will be supported for those live actions that support OAuth authentication. Unfortunately not all actions do, and so there are exceptions. When connection manager is released the help will detail which will.

    For the balance, the comment by Mike Oryszak below is an option for these actions.

  11. Update Item Permissions For External User

    Currently the Update Item Permissions action does not support modifying permissions on external users (reason here:https://community.nintex.com/thread/12513). It would be great if this action could be updated to support external users, or if another action could be developed specifically to interaction with externals users who have been added to the SharePoint site.

  12. Assign a task without sending notification email

    Currently, Nintex Workflow for Office 365 does not provide any out-of-the-box functionality to assign a task without sending notification email to the assigned people in the workflow. Can we have this feature to choose not to send email to the assigned people in the Workflow Tasks which was previously available in Nintex 2010 as option - "None".

  13. Managed Holiday

    Would be good if we could still set this in O365 so that calculations between dates won't include weekends/bank holidays (the days we set in the managed holidays)

  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. Global task delegation

    We moved from SP2010 to SPO and we need global task delegation back. When one of our employees goes on vacation, they need the option to delegate ALL nintex tasks to another user for a set date range. This "upgrade" to SPO and Nintex Online has been a nightmare for end users. Missing way too many important features.

  17. Copy to SharePoint Action required

    I have multiple site collections which store controlled master documents (Word format), once approved a PDF copy needs to also be made available from one central library location (open access for all staff). Copy to SharePoint action is sorely missed in O365.

    The work around for this is to create a list with the appropriate columns to store the data one wants. Use update list to store the data and query list to retrieve the data.

  19. Adding the possibility to empty a datefield

    It would come in very handy that we would have the possibility to be able to empty a datefield via the workflow action to set a field.
