  1. empty collection error / collection range error

    Currently, if you try to get item 0 from a collection, and the collection is empty, the workflow TERMINATES. Ideally, the workflow would error, and there would be a way to try / catch the error, but there isn't. Your workflow just stops running, and there is no email or any other kind of indication that there is a problem with your workflow. How do you manage this without throwing an error? There is no way to test the number of items in the collection to avoid this TERMINATION.

  2. Nintex Sign powered by Adobe Sign multiple signers at one stage

    It would be helpful to be able to specify multiple e-mail addresses that can sign at one stage of the Adobe Sign process. For example, you may have 3 people in a group that could sign off on a purchase order, but you only need one of their signatures and you want to be able to track which one of them has done so.
    Searching the web, it appears in Adobe Sign that could be accomplished by using Recipient Groups in their user interface. I know for a specific agreement in Adobe Sign you can add an alternate signer if…

  4. 'Your Workflow will expire within 30 days' message should not be written to workflow history list

    1)30 day expiry warning is written to history list adding additional item to history list.
    2) It causes issues if history list inheritance is broken and workflow is running with elevated permissions
    3)The message does not add value of being in history list

    Thank you for posting your feedback.

    Informing as many users of an impending expiration as possible is important to keep critical workflows available and running. To that end, I'm afraid we will not be adding this request.

  5. External email service to support image in the multiple line text

    When using an external email service, the email won't load the image that is part of the multiple-line text column.
    It would be great if this can be supported in the future.

  8. Nintex Document Tagger - Date Variable - Allow customer or multiple options to format the date.

    The customer wants to insert the Date Variable from the SharePoint Colum which is displayed as DD/MM/YYYY into the Document Generation Template and display the date in the right format.
    It looks like there is no control over the date formats and you need to select one of the presets but none of the options includes DD/MM/YYYY.

    We have no plans to support GCC High Environment with the current Nintex Workflow for O365 app instead the upcoming Nintex Workflow Cloud GCC Moderate Environment will be available instead to support GCC medium requirements.

  12. Fix Number Value inputs in workflow designer

    There seems to be a problem with the regular expression that stops you from adding text to a number field. I can't enter any number with a 0 after the decimal point. So a value like 1.02 can't be entered.

  13. Take preservation/retention policy into account

    When retention policy is activated on O365, it's not possible to delete Nintex workflows. It's also not possible to uninstall the O365 Workflow and Forms app from a site.
    The only solution is to deactivate retention policy

  14. Inserting hyperlink fields into emails and tasks

    When you take a sharepoint hyperlink field and put it into a task form or email, by default the value of the field is converted to string and looks like this:
    Salesforce - from side bar
    {"__metadata":{"type":"SP.FieldUrlValue"},"Description":"https:\/\/na67.lightning.force.com\/lightning\/r\/Opportunity\/0060z00001wLhd7AAC\/view","Url":"https:\/\/na67.lightning.force.com\/lightning\/r\/Opportunity\/0060z00001wLhd7AAC\/view"}

    By default, it should take the display text of the hyperlink and build a link out of it with the URL

  15. Nintex Workflow Action display the login name of the SharePoint AD Group instead of the Display Name

    When a domain group is added in the To field of Send Email action (or any action with field person/group) the name Group name is displayed. Once the action is saved it changes to ID format. (c:0t.c|tenant|<group ID>)

    We would like to have ability to keep the Group name instead of Login name as this confusing for the user.

  16. Conditional Start Workflow when items are modified and: Is Current Version (previous value)

    It will be nice to have the same options and settings that exists in Nintex Workflow for On-Prem, Conditional Start Workflow to start when items are modified and: Is Current Version (previous value).

  17. add an option to search for an action within workflow

    imagine a giant workflow, say, 200 + actions. it has lots of paths, all collapsed, that has action sets withing action sets within parallel tasks and so on

    then you need to correct a specific action.

    would be nice if we could simply find an action by name?

  19. Is there a way to increase the permissible workflow size to more than 2 MB?

    This may be the restriction from Office 365, but I have built many Nintex workflows and most of them reach 2 MB very easily. Some workflows can't be broken in to multiple workflows when you use State machines. It would be helpful for bigger approval processes, if the permitted workflow size is more than 2 MB.

    Hey Harika,
    You are correct where the workflow publishing size limit is enforced by SharePoint. Have you tried using Run Component Workflow within the State Machine as a way to breakdown into smaller workflows?
    Cheers,
    Lisa

  20. Use OAuth 2.0 for all connections

    Because we use Federation with an external authentication provider, our users do not know the AAD password of their associated account. Consequently, the Basic (username and password) authentication method will not work for us. Can we convert all Basic auth connection types to use OAuth 2.0 instead?
