  1. Component Workflow - Visibility

    As of now, any component workflows created in a Office 365 is visible to all users within the tenant. This will create confusion in scenarios where in the component workflow is required for a specific site collection and not to be visible for others.

    A visibility flag might help a long way to target component workflows for specific site collections rather than entire O365 tenant

    Thanks for the great suggestion guys, I’ve added this backlog and will keep you updated on a time frame on when we can deliver this feature update. Would love to hear any other thoughts/suggestions on how we can make component workflows even better..?

  2. Log component workflow history to caller workflow history

    Right now I can't find any way to see the history of a component workflow called from another workflow. If possible it'd be great to have component workflows log to the caller's history.

  3. Disabling Header and Footer in Notification Message in SharePoint Online

    We are trying to figure out how to remove headers from emails from the workflow in SharePoint online. I see you have a KB article:

    https://support.nintex.com/SharePoint/Workflow/Disabling_Header_and_Footer_in_Notification_Message

    But that appears to only be for SharePoint on-prem. How do we disable them in SharePoint online?

    I opened case number 00246103 and they suggested I post here. They are still researching. I would call this a feature request.

  4. Daylight Saving Time Support

    Currently our Site workflows have been firing an hour early due to Daylight Saving Time ending for this year. This is apparently not a bug for some reason, and should be considered such.

  6. LazyApproval Out Of Office Support

    Currently an out of office email causes LazyApproval within O365 to send a second email saying that the response was not valid. LazyApproval should know that it's an out of office email like the system does on-prem.

  7. The Publishing Date fields are displaying the time from an incorrect time zone

    Currently, Nintex for O-365 workflows are not able to parse the Date and Time from the following publishing fields - Scheduling Start Date/End Date. Any workflow email that includes these fields shall display incorrect time (due to time-zone difference between the Nintex App and the Site-Collection). We would need this to be corrected, as all the site-collections will not be in the same time-zone where the Nintex Apps are hosted.

  9. Create Custom Workflow Actions

    I would really like to be able to create our own custom workflow actions that we could use within our site collection this would make the product much more flexible.

  11. Calculate Work Days inline

    Either an inline function or action allowing dates to be calculated minus weekends..
    Given that Weekends vary from country to country and some tasks don't require this, it would be great if that within i the task action you could choose and calculate which days should be included.

  12. 'Run Now'

    As Nintex Workflow for 0365 is heavily dependant upon the 'Call HTTP Web Service' action, creating and testing them is particulary time consuming with the feedback cycle, being build workflow, publish, run and then view the history log.

    The 'Run Now' provided within the on-premises solution allows users to call the web service there and then to test the input and output.

    It would be nice to have version control. Its a great feature that is missing from the on-perm world.

  14. Start Workflow in Item Edit menu

    In NWF 2010+ through Workflow Settings we can show a button to start workflows on the item edit menu. Is this planned? This is a very useful feature for high priority manual workflows.

    SharePoint online is still not allowing Apps to integrate into this menu. Suggest you configure the start options to start on item creation and start on item update when developing and testing. Then creating or editing the item will kick the workflow off for you.

  15. Approve/Reject buttons from email on mobile devices

    I added a comment to this idea: https://nintex.uservoice.com/forums/218291-3-nintex-workflow-for-office-365/suggestions/5740552-email-notifications-having-approve-reject-bu, but not sure if the comments are being monitored since it is marked as completed.

    Based on my clients' feedback, the greatest need for button approval via email is from mobile devices. When I access the LazyApproval email from my iPhone, the actionable buttons are not there.

    Side note: The actionable message buttons are available via my iPhone for Flow tasks.

  19. Allow tracking of Authorisation emails sent by Docusign

    Allow tracking of Authorisation emails sent by Docusign

    If Docusign revokes the authorisation token and it needs to be authorised again it would be good if this can be tracked from a workflow

    Please tell us more about your use case.
    Using the Set workflow variable one can get the WorkflowInstance ID, but it sounds like you are needing the Workflow design ID? You can get the Workflow (Design) Name, what use case requires the ID rather than the Name? Thanks
