  1. Enable Date formatting functions

    Date format is one of the common use-case in Nintex workflows. It'll be great if Nintex can build this feature.

      • Assign a task without sending notification email

        Currently, Nintex Workflow for Office 365 does not provide any out-of-the-box functionality to assign a task without sending notification email to the assigned people in the workflow. Can we have this feature to choose not to send email to the assigned people in the Workflow Tasks which was previously available in Nintex 2010 as option - "None".

        • Connection Manager for "Web Request"

          Connection Manager is now available for Office 365. However, action "Web Request" was not included. I would suggest Nintex to enhance this.

            • Export action set

              The ability to export action sets and import them into other workflows would be a great piece of functionality for us to have!

              • inline functions

                Please allow me to use inline functions in a workflow. I cannot convert a string to all upper case without using 26 regular expression actions. Before I could use fn-toupper() when building a string.

                • Ability to retrieve Azure AD Extended Attributes

                  We need the ability to retrieve Azure AD extended attributes utilizing the Azure AD Get user details action. There is a legitimate case for getting details such as cost center or Employee ID.

                  • Run If fields should be switched

                    We are finding the new Run If fields awkward. We think that the first two fields should be swtiched with the last field. I have an image attached as a sample of what it looks like today.

                    • Copy to SharePoint Action required

                      I have multiple site collections which store controlled master documents (Word format), once approved a PDF copy needs to also be made available from one central library location (open access for all staff). Copy to SharePoint action is sorely missed in O365.

                            Within the Nintex Forms there is now a Print to PDF function that was released last year however it would nice if that could be an action item in the workflow to allow for capture of form in PDF to be emailed as an attachment with the 'Send an Email' action. Ideal for scenario's where form may be used by HR that require documented records to be kept on file not just SharePoint lists.

                            Have looked at using Document Generation however there are many collapsing sections in my form that may or may not need to be captured so the…

                                I would like to be able to say "wait for the field to change to this value OR that value, then do this action" - there is currently no option for entering multiple values.

                                  Please have a look at the condition builder just released as part of conditional start. Is this the kind of condition builder that you need in “wait for field change in current item” ?

                                • Update document set or folder with Update Item or Update Item Permissions

                                  The O365 Update Item is restricted specifically to documents or items, it cannot actually update a Document Set or Folder Item. There are many cases where we need this specifically with Document Sets. The CAML query used to select a Document Set does not work in Nintex, though it works in PowerShell, CSOM, Javascript, REST, etc.

                                    • Manage your Workflows tasks from a mobile device using the Nintex Mobile App.

                                      I recently try the Nintex Mobile App with our O365 SharePoint site. It's working well and i was surprised by the design on different devices and OS.
                                      It could be nice to improve this app with the ability to manage his tasks from his mobile and not just be able to fill a new form.

                                      • From Field in Send an Email

                                        It would be great to have a From field that supports dynamic references. Most business requirements want emails sent from a specific account, which is not supported in NW in O365!

                                          To support this requirement we’ve just release the following features

                                          - Specify a customizable sender display name for both email and task actions, we understand one of the main requests was to be able to supply a custom from email address however due to many of the limitations in the cloud we are currently unable to deliver this request and so hopefully being able to add a From display name will get you one step closer..

                                          - Add a customizable Reply To email address for the email action so you can control the email address when people hit reply.

                                          Hope you enjoy these features and be great to hear any feedback once you try them out.

                                        • Copy Attachment to Doc Library

                                          Similar to the On-Prem action. Being able to copy List attachments to a document library with associated metadata if columns exist
