  1. 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.

  3. View all connections in Connection Manager

    Currently, in the Connection Manager, Administrators are only able to view Shared Connections.

    It would be great to have it where Administrators can view Shared and Personal Connections.

    Additionally, it is currently set where you can only see where the Share connection is located in the site. It would be great to see where it is located through out the tenant instead of each site.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    The work around for this is to create a list with the appropriate columns to store the data one wants. Use update list to store the data and query list to retrieve the data.

  8. 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.

  9. update item permissions for users from external domain

    O365 Nintex workflow doesn't support those domains not managed by us. For example, some other organizations have their own O365 accounts so now when those users come on board, we need to create a Security Group in SharePoint group, add the external user into the group after he accepts the invitation. Then we need to add the user to the Security Group. Then re-run the workflow to grant permissions to the user. A lot of manual steps.

  10. DocuSign Single Sign-On Integration

    DocuSign actions should include support for Single Sign-On between DocuSign and Office 365. Currently, to authenticate a DocuSign user that utilizes Single Sign-On they must be added to an exceptions list, and it is unrealistic to add all users to the exceptions list as this defeats the purpose of using Single Sign-On.

  12. Wait for change in specific List Item

    The current 'Wait for Event in List Item' runs every time an item is added or changed in the current list. The GUID in that action is an output.

    It would be great to have an action where the GUID is the input, so the action only runs when an item with that specific GUID is changed.

  13. Update Item Permissions For External User

    Currently the Update Item Permissions action does not support modifying permissions on external users (reason here:https://community.nintex.com/thread/12513). It would be great if this action could be updated to support external users, or if another action could be developed specifically to interaction with externals users who have been added to the SharePoint site.

  15. Print form to PDF action in Workflow

    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…

  18. Multi-factor authentication support for live actions.

    Currently, none of the Nintex live actions support any multi-factor authentication. More and more clients are switching to this level of security and the lack of this support greatly inhibits our feature offerings. None of the live action advantages are available and clients can't switch to multi-factor authentication without breaking workflows that utilize these features.

    With the work on a “Connection manager” MFA will be supported for those live actions that support OAuth authentication. Unfortunately not all actions do, and so there are exceptions. When connection manager is released the help will detail which will.

    For the balance, the comment by Mike Oryszak below is an option for these actions.

  19. Update Date/Time Column To Blank

    The Update Item or Office 365 Update Item action should be able to set a Date/Time column back to a blank value, which is currently not possible.

  20. Really need a replacement for PadLeft.

    If InLine functions are not being replaced in 0365 (which I really hope they are), how about more actions to help with common functions like padding out variable for use in Document title etc..
