  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. Wait for Field Change

    Can we have waiting until "Is Not Empty" or "Not Equal To" as options, as in the OnPrem version. Many times I have actions that are waiting until a fields IS NOT EQUAL to the current value.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  13. Update Field - Choice Columns not displaying choices

    As described - this is a key function for simple tasks like updating status. What is the O365 workaround?

  14. Variable task outcomes in 'Start a task process'

    When using the 'Start a task process' action the Outcomes have to be added/updated one at a time. It would be nice to provide one Workflow Variable as a delimited string with the Task Outcomes as the outcomes may depend on item properties. You could then add your own conditional logic for each expected outome. Key is to make the action more dynamic and versatile.

  15. Separate date and Time fucntion

    It would be nice that date and time function come as two separate functions. Because even if I select date only as the format; the output in the email body show both date and time.

    Hey there,
    You can achieve this by using the Advance Lookup, and setting the Return Type (X icon next to the field) as either ‘Long Date’ or ‘Short Date’.
    Hope that helps.
    Cheers,
    Lisa

  16. Reformatting of task outcomes

    Then renaming Task outcomes they are reformatted by the designer with the following rules:
    first character will get uppercased
    all other words will get lowercased

    Sample
    let deplartment Research&Development decide
    will lead to
    Let deplartment research&development decide

    In german this leads to mal worded choices. I'd like to have control over casing of task outcomes

  17. document generation metadata

    it would be awesome to be able to tag document generation documents with metadata so when we save them in a document library we can tag them appropriately so then views, etc can be created off the metadata.

  18. Consistent action names

    Having worked with Nintex On-Prem for a number of years I have FINALLY started working with Nintex for O365. I cannot find anything! All the actions that do the same thing have completely different titles... Why? I am so totally lost.
    Can you consistently name the actions in your workflow products regardless of the SharePoint environment they are working on? This goes for NWC too?

    Hi Cassy, Thanks for your feedback, we will look at how you can search for an action in the toolbox in the future.

  19. Ability to Print

    Hello

    I'm studying a workflow and it would be such a great feature the ability to print a entire workflow as a picture, so it will help the discussion with my team about streamlining the process

    Thanks

  20. Requesting new Action under Utility to Encode / Decode URL

    We need this utility to come from Nintex itself rather than we are calling third party web request to encode/decode. It's quite simple, we need a utility to encode/decode URL.
    This will help when we call REST API to SharePoint with special characters.
