  1. Approval scenario

    I have a parallel approval scenario whereby I have a number of assignees. If one of the assignees rejects the task the approval process should direct stop and the outcome should be rejected, if all assignees approve the approval process becomes approved.

    PS: In the on-premise version of Nintex this can be done with a flexi task.

  4. Add description box for actions

    Add a description box in workflow actions, so we can describe in detail, what the action does and why. This will help when transitioning workflows from development to support teams.

  5. Workflow Constants (Note: not for credentials - see Connection manager in the Nintex community)

    Create a centralized location where values can be assigned to constants for use across the tenancy or Site Collection by all workflows. Allows the use of consistent values for parameters. The values can be centrally managed so that all parties use consistent values that can be easily updated and immediately applied to wherever they are used. An example could be a discount rate used for financial calculations or a department cost center code.

  7. Ability to programmatically import workflows with Connection Manager actions

    Connection Manager is now available in a few workflow actions viz. viz. "Start Workflow" or "Office 365 update item permissions".

    These actions though are not automatically configured, when exported and imported to another subsite (sharing the connection manager). This is a real problem, as now you can't programmatically import an exported workflow. Imported workflows need to be manually configured, by selecting the Connection Manager. All other properties are automatically configured, except Connection Manager.

  8. Workflow Errors

    There needs to be some notifcation to the designer or somoene if the workflow errors. When you have multiple workflows across multiple sites a notifcation is helpful in managing your workflows and any issues. This was available in on-prem why has it gone away?

  9. Layout of Workflow Designer

    There is a lot of white Space in Workflow Designer that causes a fair amount of scrolling on the web browser. My suggestion is to reduce the size of, or flatten, the action boxes. Also, crunch them together more. Maybe allow connections of actions that fall off the bottom of the screen to wrap to the top of the screen next to those actions that don't.

  11. Enhance the 'query xml' action to support setting multiple variables at once

    The current Query XML action is limited to just being able to set one variable (collection) as its output. We would like to see (just like in the On Premise version) that you can have multiple variable assignments in one action.

  12. see calculated formula

    When I look at a configured activity, I should be able to see the value/formula that I calculated. When the author leaves the place they built workflows, the new people do not know how he built these values unless he had documentation. I need to troubleshoot why it fails at certain points but I am unable to without knowing how that variable is being calculated to begin with.

  13. Details upon hovering over actions

    In On-Prem, we can hover over actions to get a brief bit of information about what's going on in that action - ie what variable is being set.

    Please bring this into O365. With the bit of lag that happens in opening actions, this could save a substantial amount of time overall.

  14. Keep track of multiple attachment components from Item to tasks on NF365

    When we are on a task, the only way we have to display the master item attachment is JS is using JS.
    If your master item has several attachments component and your tasks forms also has several of them, you have no way to relink the task attachment to the master items attachment (using API calls, we can recopy the task item to master item but they will always be recopied to the default attachment component)...

    To solve that, at the moment we fully recreate the NFFormData XML! Is that a viable solutiony??

  16. Ability to stop inheriting elevated privileges for action sets embedded in an action set that has elevated privileges

    Currently, all actions within an elevated action set are forced to be executed with the elevated privileges, hence causing the field Modified By to be Sharepoint App which is not desirable.
    Either allow embedded action sets to be executed as the current user or allow the modification of ModifiedBy and CreatedBy fields in the list item

  18. Show or Hide Allowed Actions

    In the current On-Prem I can Show/Hide actions for the users using a AD Group. This way we are able to control what the developer sees. Based on our maturity we show/hide actions. Such a feature is not available in O365 and this is very crucial for us to implement the governance in O365.

  19. Document generation: German Date Format

    When adding date tags in document generation you can select between 6 date time formats but in Germany they are confusing as they are not common here.
    It would be helpful if german date format dd.MM.yyyy hh.mm would be supported.

  20. Task reassignment

    Extending the task actions with task reassignment capabilities for users that need to approve tasks. Currently we need to implement quite a workaround to make this happen. Solution could be to have a button available and a field that let's a user reassign the current task to a different user.
