  1. Better Error Notifications When Publishing

    Errors when publishing a workflow can be difficult to troubleshoot since the error messages are generic.

    For example
    "Error publishing workflow. Specified data type does not match the current data type of the property"

    It would be helpful to know what property it is talking about, the data type it is expecting, what is trying to send it the incorrect value and what value it is trying to send.

    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.

  4. previous value field

    I would really like to see the previous value field reinstated in Nintex workflows, for example when selecting a value, being able to choose "created by (previous value)" as an option.

  6. Increase Document Generation limits for templates

    Increase the limit of allowed Word templates to use from 5 to at least 50. The 5 document limit is too few for building out product manuals that can be edited by users after the fact.

  8. Favorite Actions

    Create a tab that lists favorite actions. This would allow to easily access actions that you use a lot (like log history), instead of having to scroll through all those tabs.

    Thank you for your suggestion. In the mean time try typing in one of the words of the action name in the search it will appear in the toolbox e.g. log for log to history. This will also avoid the need to scroll through tabs.

  9. Add ability to send task reminder emails hourly

    Add "Hourly" as Frequency option for Reminder email options within task actions.

    Hi all,

    This feature has been depriortized at this stage and moved into the backlog. I will update this ticket when we revisit this idea.

    Cheers,

  10. Add Variables to the O365 List Query CAML Editor

    I need to dynamically build a CAML query where there may be 1 to many conditions in the <Where> filter. Right now I have to know how many conditions will be in <OR> before I publish the workflow.

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

  14. Allow Carriage Returns/New Lines in Yammer Messages

    I would like the ability to better format the message that gets sent to Yammer. Right now, I cannot seem to find a way to add carriage returns into the message. Messages on Yammer allow this kind of formatting, so perhaps I'm just missing something in the workflow creation.

    If not, I would to be able to do this

    Please tell us more about your use case.
    Using the Set workflow variable one can get the WorkflowInstance ID, but it sounds like you are needing the Workflow design ID? You can get the Workflow (Design) Name, what use case requires the ID rather than the Name? Thanks
