  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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??

  10. 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

  12. 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.

  13. Exception Handling when Task Outcome Content Types are deleted

    When creating custom Task Outcomes in a Task Action, a new Content type is automatically being created at Site Level and added in the Workflow Task list.

    We had a heavy workflow with different Tasks and used this "custom Outcomes" until we realized it would be more efficient with custom Content types for our outcomes.

    We refactored the workflow, forgetting a couple of Task Actions, and deleted automatically generated Content Types that were still in use.

    The designer won't open the workflow anymore. The Null Pointer Exception is not caught.

    Hours of work were lost as we couldn't save the…

  14. Closing site workflow designer to return to workflows home page instead of site home page

    When closing a site workflow designer please make it return to the Workflow App home page instead of site homepage. It is annoying especially when you have to check scheduling etc. after closing the designer, when you have to come back to the Workflow app the long way.

  15. Give the possibility to customize the actionnable messages

    When we use the actionnable message in the task validation we can't customize the message in appearance or langage. I wish i can change the Nintex logo by the enterprise logo, use the enterprise graphic charter, use the langage of the enterprise country... for creating a custom message with actionnable message

  16. Ability to create and manage email message templates

    Would like the ability to create, modify and manage email message templates on Nintex Workflow for Office 365, for the Task Process and Assign a task workflow action(s).

    This is already available on premise, and is a very useful feature, but for people making use of Nintex Workflow for O365, this would most definitely make workflow design quicker if designers could choose an email template, perhaps containing some html and rich text/images (maybe even an email signature) where all they would need to is insert their metadata where necessary.

  17. Advanced lookup: Provide value-based drop-down for Choice fields

    Hello,

    for virtually every Action, the workflow designer can use "dynamic" data based on the workflow context, for example, for recipients, filters, notifications etc.

    A typical Scenario is a Run-If Action, where the embedded Action should only execute if the value of a certain attribute for "Current Item". Now imagine that the column on which you want to check for the value is of type "Choice", i.e., has a predefined list of possible values.

    In order to ease the process of Workflow design, such fields in an "Advanced lookup" should present a drop-down with all possible values to the Workflow…

  18. Log To History

    Include a "Log to History" check box in all actions so we do not have to create a separate Log to History Action item in the workflow to record the current status.

  20. 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.
