  1. Put help directly into configure action dialog

    It would be nice to have a bit more information about each action available at our fingertips. Especially as a beginner, I don't always have a clue what an action does, or why you would use it. The action help is useful, but if you pulled the section "What can I do with this workflow action?" into the left column of the "configure action" dialog box. Additionally, more actions need that "What can I do with this workflow action?" section in their help.

  2. 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.

  4. Language settings bug

    Hi, I started with IE11 with the first language = Dutch.
    Because I wanted to use Nintex Workflow for Office365 I set my browser language to English (UK). Now most of the Nintex Workflow Designer is in English, but part of the action names and settings remain in Dutch, others are in English.

  7. Allow Carriage Returns/New Lines in Yammer Messages

    I would like the ability to better format the message that gets sent to Yammer. Right now, I cannot seem to find a way to add carriage returns into the message. Messages on Yammer allow this kind of formatting, so perhaps I'm just missing something in the workflow creation.

    If not, I would to be able to do this

  8. 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.

  9. Where are some templates that I can get started quickly.

    Just like the demos you show on YouTube, I am looking for some templates

  10. Use a reference for Site Language and Template within "Create site in o365" action

    Currently the Site Language and template need to be defined when configuring the action.

    Please add an option to define this by a reference/variable, so that this can be configured depending on the workflow logic.

  11. Save / Publish Timestamp in Designer

    Look - I'm not the smartest, and I also tend to fluctuate between saving like it's going out of style, and saving so rarely that you'd think I was allergic.

    I just want a time stamp in the top right hand corner that says Last Publish: (date time) -- Last Saved: (date time)

    Surely that's a quick win?

  12. Change Log

    It would be great if there was some built in change log functionality built in. Either as something I could view from the workflow designer or even if it just wrote changes to a file in the SharePoint site the workflow is built in.

    I keep an excel change log for each workflow but a more detailed change log that had each change made to every control would be helpful when troubleshooting a workflow I have not looked at in some time.

  13. Allow States in State Machines to be Collapsed and Expanded

    It would be really nice to be able to minimize and expand each state as we're working through large workflows, to increase visibility & use it as a sort of checklist as we work through.

  14. State Machine - States not readable in canvas

    When working with a state machine that have several states, the titles for the state path are not readable. I have tried zooming but the text for the state still isn't readable.

    It would be nice if more text for the state could be displayed. Otherwise, a hover effect to display the state text would work.

  16. Can Nintex also connect to outlook for doing a complex mailbox management ?

    we need a workflow solution end to end for doing a complex mail box management with a group mailbox we use on daily basis.

  17. Complete import of Document Generation Configuration

    Currently when doing export / import of a workflow containing document generation actions, the doc gen actions drop elements of their configuration when imported to the target list...namely the source library for templates and output library for generated documents. This occurs even though libraries with the same title exist in the target site.

    It is an impediment to releasing changes and makes the process more prone to human error.

    Please retain the config when matching libraries exist.

  18. Option to suppress "Start Component Workflow" wf history entries

    It would be useful to have an additional option in the "Start Component Workflow" action that gives the possibility to suppress the automatically generated log entries in the workflow history.

    Whenever you start a component workflow it logs the id of the component workflow started and when the comp workflow is finished all outcome variables are logged as well.

    Since our customers use the workflow history to see what is going on, they should not see technical messages like that.

    It would be more useful to be able to store the instance id of the started comp workflow in a…

  19. Item Update in a List

    Why did you get rid of the drop down box from updating an item in a list if the item in the list is multiple choice? I need to update a status from blank to "Pending Approval" but I already defined what the options were in the list. It should pull this through (and use to). Please fix it.

    Thanks,
    Seth

  20. Notification options - Multipe approvers

    Please allow (as already delivered for NW for SharePoint) the configuration of configuring the notification Options for individual approvers. More particularly, I want to be able to enable the notification E-Mail for certain approvers within one Action while disabling the notification for other approvers.
