    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. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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” ?

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

  11. 'Run Now'

    As Nintex Workflow for 0365 is heavily dependant upon the 'Call HTTP Web Service' action, creating and testing them is particulary time consuming with the feedback cycle, being build workflow, publish, run and then view the history log.

    The 'Run Now' provided within the on-premises solution allows users to call the web service there and then to test the input and output.

  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

  15. Start Workflow in Item Edit menu

    In NWF 2010+ through Workflow Settings we can show a button to start workflows on the item edit menu. Is this planned? This is a very useful feature for high priority manual workflows.

    SharePoint online is still not allowing Apps to integrate into this menu. Suggest you configure the start options to start on item creation and start on item update when developing and testing. Then creating or editing the item will kick the workflow off for you.

    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

  19. 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.

  20. Add Request Review action

    I used Request Review actions on my Nintex Workflow on premise but after migrating to Nintex O365, this action is not supported, please add this back.
