  2. Termination of Component Workflow

    Today if a main workflow invokes a component workflow and the component workflow is terminated for some reason, then the component workflow does not return any status back to the calling workflow and the parent workflow keeps waiting forever. This is the case if the setting on the "Invoke Component Workflow" action is set to wait for component workflow to complete and wait for the outcome

    There should be a way for the component workflow to return back the status in case it is terminated

    Hi Sridhar,

    The issue we currently have is the workflow engine does not send us any kind of event to indicate that the component workflow (or any workflow) has suspended meaning we can’t send any notification back to the parent workflow. We are currently talking with Microsoft to see if they can provide us the info we need, will update you once we know more..

    Cheers, Rick

  3. 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.

  4. Document Generation - Specify Template as VARIABLE

    Currently when using the Document Generation action the template can only be selected from a drop down list of documents in the template library. This is very limiting when seeking to build a configurable solution or where the list of templates is very large. Frequent workflow changes will be required.

    Compare this to the old Update Document action where the template URL can be specified as a variable. I understand Nintex Workflow Cloud also supports a variable for the template.

    Please bring this in for O365!

  5. keep tasks for more than 60 days

    I have been told that completed tasks in Office 365 are cleaned up after 60 days (removed) but would like the ability to retain these indefinitely.

    With the release of Task ID in the task actions, the best approach here is to query the task IDs for the comments and other details and write them to an audit list. That way you can control the retention period in accordance with your retention policies.

    This can either be done within each workflow that creates tasks, or if a blanket approach is adequate a site workflow that runs to a schedule, using the scheduled start capability.

  6. 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

  7. Workflow tasks: Add the ability to mark a percentage of a task complete and to define it's predecessors

    In the Workflow Task list, there are two columns for % Complete and Predecessors.

    These could be integrated within a Flexi-task so that a group of tasks can be completed before a task can be approved.

    The percentage completed could be used to track the progress of a task, and the percentage can be incremented as the task gets closer to completion.

  9. My Workflow Tasks Web Part

    This web part is not in O365. I have a workaround in the short term, but a centralized webpart would be useful.

    Oh, and allow us to control ALL the columns that are displayed - don't force feed more than the title column.

    Thanks for the feedback. We are currently reviewing this request.

    I should point out as a stop gap, all workflow tasks created in NW365 should automatically be available via the My Tasks / Work Management features in your MySite.

  10. Creation and management of External users

    Are you looking to support the management and creation of 'External Users'?

    Just an update on this – there is no API set for record declaration in Office 365 as yet. As soon as it’s available in the platform, we will support it.

  12. Headers and Footers

    it would be great if you could have headers and footers and then these could be inserted into all actions.

  15. Get Information from created Workflow Task related to current item

    Would like to be able to retrieve information from the workflow task created in a previous step. Currently there doesn't seem to be a good method for doing this other than trying to use the "related Items" field for validation (which also fails). Would like to see the related workflow task associated as an integral part of the workflow variables.

  18. Web services URL for IP forms in NW0365

    In previous versions, there is a url like this :

    http://.... /vtibin/nintexworkflow/workflow.asmx?WSDL

    So we can use all web services in infopath forms for example; getrunningworkflowtasksforcurrentuser,processtaskresponse...

    Now, we work on office 365, what should the URL be?

  20. Approved vs Rejected Condition

    Is there/will there be a way to set it up so if a task is rejected, you can setup an action (i.e. email initiator) to let them know that the task had been rejected, and conversely if it is approved, have them alerted that it has been approved?

    Hi,
    Thanks for your feedback. We are currently reviewing this with the development team.

    Historically we haven’t included default rejection / approval notifications in the task actions, preferring to give the user the power to add a notification actions where necessary and to reduce the configuration burden in the task action. However we will look into the option.

    If others think this is a useful feature, please vote up the request.
