  1. Ability to execute javascript code

    It would be extremely useful to have an action allowing execution of javascript code. That would be helpful for example to handle actions/ functions not present in Nintex already. I don't know if this is doable, but maybe? It is probably pretty complex for the Nintex engine to check, whether the code in the action is executed or not, so that Workflow can move to a next action, but still such feature would really be helpful :)

  2. A Create Group Action

    I really like the Create Site Action, but it needs to be used in association with a 'Create Group' Action and a 'Assign User to Group' Action. Otherwise the 'Create Site' action is of little use in my opinion :)

    That way you could fully automate site creation & improve Sharepoint governance by ensuring when a site is created, you can assign the perfect set of Groups and Permissions

  3. Assigend tasks are not deleted if a workflow is terminated.

    Assigned tasks must be deleted/canceled as well, so the user can not approve/reject tasks which are already terminated.

  4. Add Request Review action

    I used Request Review actions on my Nintex Workflow on premise but after migrating to Nintex O365, this action is not supported, please add this back.

  5. 'Exists in Collection' Action should return the indexes as well as true/false

    There should be an option to return all of the indexes, or the index of the first result, where this action finds an item in the collection. This would help greatly in processing collections and improving execution time.

  6. Do not put an additional file size limit on top of Microsoft size limit Nintex Forms 365 allows attaching a file of 250MB (Microsoft limit)

    Remove additional file size limit on top of Microsoft size limit

    Nintex Forms 365 allows attaching a file of 250MB (Microsoft limit) to a list item.
    But the action 'O365 Upload File' in Nintex Workflow 365 currently has a size limit of 100MB compressed size.
    This limit should be removed; Nintex should not put additional file size limits on top of Microsoft limits.

    Our busines case is as follows :

    I have external users uploading files, via NF365, which are attached to a list item.
    The file size limit = 250MB.
    An internal user is approving the uploaded file, which…

  8. 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.

  13. Adding the possibility to empty a datefield

    It would come in very handy that we would have the possibility to be able to empty a datefield via the workflow action to set a field.

    Just an update on this – there is no API set for record declaration in Office 365 as yet. As soon as it’s available in the platform, we will support it.

  17. Improving control on configured emails (HTML)

    Please enable following in Email bodies so that developers can verify the true content they've configured.

    1. Any hyperlink in Email bodies is shows as: reflink="nw-stringbuilder-token-661c62d8-cd92-4f10-9273-e643486faf71" reftext="nw-stringbuilder-token-8596239b-6d13-445a-8bf0-7f58bfe9571b"

    Nintex on-prem:
    reflink="{Common:WebUrl}/IMPD Process Documents/Forms/Approved Documents.aspx" reftext="here"

    Please enable actually inserted hyperlink. Otherwise, they only to find hyperlinks is via running workflow, which is not always possible.

    1. When developer clicks on any content within email body and later clicks on View HTML, the cursor should point to corresponding position in within HTML. While it works in Nintex on-prem, in Nintex Online it points to the end of the email body.

  18. Restrict External Email

    It is fantastic that Nintex enabled its users to send email to people outside of an Office 365 tenant. However, there is no way to block/stop/prevent that from occurring, if such an action is in violation of a company's policies.

    Therefore, it would be great if there was a checkbox that allowed that function to be disabled for a given customer's tenant (but still permit the option to use attachments for internal users).

    Most actions should have error handling similar to a try/catch block in programming.

  20. Personal connections in Connection Manager

    From the governance perspective, personal connections should be disabled by default. Currently it must be manually disabled on each site/subs-site.

    Recommended path:
    1. Personal connections must be disabled by default
    2. Need basis site owners may decide to enable it
    3. This would encourage the use of shared connections
