    Hi vaibhav,

    Have you tried using ‘Elevated permissions’ from Action Set? This will allow all child actions contained within Action set to run with elevated permissions and make updates to the list if the initiator does not have contribute permissions.

    cheers

  2. Line Breaks in MultiLine Plaintext Textboxes?

    How about supporting the ability to do new lines in multi-line plain text textboxes?

    An example would be a comments field, where multiple comments are entered. You should be able to use the Regular Expression action to replace a temporary character (eg ~) where you want the line break to be, with \r\n. The Regular Expression action even tells you to use .NET syntax, which is \r\n but it doesn't work.

    I've googled and googled for a solution but can't find a solution for Nintex 365. Seems like such a simple thing but it can't be done, at least not…

  3. Nintex Sign & SharePoint Metadata

    There is a serious gab in the O365 Nintex for adobe sign action. We need the ability to return some sort of SharePoint Library ID so then we can update any other metadata that is associated with the file. It is fine to just give us an ID so then in a second action we can do the update by ID.

  4. Make Managed Metadata (taxonomy) actions

    I would like to see some easy to use fields for Managed Metadata. I should be able to get/set an MM field, single or multi, in one live action. It seems like an easy one to make and would save workflow development time.

  5. Central Place to terminate Suspended workflows either at list or site level

    Can we get a central place within nintex online to terminate or retry suspended workflows?
    Use case: we have a list, managed by users, that syncs specific info from one list to another. The source list had a choice column change and thus has started suspending wf's because users did not make sure destination choice column contained the same values. Now we have 200+ suspended workflows in the source list. Due to the nature of a suspended wf, we cannot just kick off a new on those items, even after the issue with the choice values are fixed between the…

  6. Create PDF from HTML, Enhanced Rich Text field (with Pictures and Tables), or Other File

    Would really like to see the ability to create PDFs that can be saved to Document Libraries that are generated from existing HTML or from any other type of file format (email, .rtf, etc.) Not looking for additional tagging or anything (like what DocGen provides). Simply looking for a PDF Converter for an existing file.

    Doc Gen has been unsuccessful for generating PDFs from existing HTML content that includes formatted tables. Really could benefit from being able to generate PDFs on the fly from already existing content.

  9. Create Modern Site Collections / Sites

    There is currently no support from the Office 365 Create Site or Office 365 Create Site Collection actions to create modern team or modern communication sites. This would be extremely valuable for site generation automation and controlling access to site generation while still giving users to option to user a modern site.

  10. Support MFA for workflow

    I have read that Nintex workflows does not support users with MFA. i always get this " The username is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the username specified." for some users who may have MFA enabled. are there any alternatives we can do? when will this be supported?

  11. Populate collection-variable from item

    When using the "set variable" action I can populate any list-field into a variable.

    However: if the field is of type "choice" or "lookup" and the field allows multiple values, I would assume that I could populate a collection, containing all values of my "multi-choice" or "multi-lookup" field.

    However, this is not the case. Instead a choice column with multiple values creates a JSON-string suggesting collection-of-strings. But this is just a string. Similar for lookups.

    Instead I have to query the list and return the result into a collection. This way I get a collection of values - why can't…

  12. Template matching with DocuSign using Nintex Workflow action

    We will like to use Nintex Workflow DocuSign actions and to be able to make use of the automatic template matching.
    It looks like this is not possible with Nintex Workflow for Office 365, Version: 1.0.4.3 as this feature is not implemented.

    Automatic template matching compares the files that you upload with all previously saved templates. Based on the sensitivity setting you select, if the match is close enough, you can choose to apply the matching template to your document, either automatically or with a notification. When you apply a matched template, all aspects of the template are applied to…

  13. 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.

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