  1. Calculated columns do not show up in Query list filter conditions

    While update items shows calculated columns in the filter conditions, query list does not. It seems like a bug!

    Kindly review and let us know.

  2. Please add error handling!

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

  3. 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*

  4. Save and Continue option for Task Form

    Please add a Save and Continue button for Task Forms within Nintex Workflow, similar to what is available in Nintex Forms.

    Example: Manager fills out form that creates list item, starts workflow, and assigns task to employee that is due in 2 weeks. The employee receives an email notification with a link to complete their assignment (task form), however it is quite lengthy and will need to fill it out in several sessions. The task form has validation rules to hide and require certain fields. Save and Continue should not cause validation to occur. Only Save and Submit.

  5. Update Connection details validates connection

    It seems when creating or modifying the connection credentials the connect button only saves the entries and does not try to test the connection. Is this true or am I missing something. Thanks

  6. Email Action - Rich Text Field Links Broken

    Currently if email action if you have a multi line rich text editor field and it contains links to current SharePoint sites or materials, those links are truncated to relative paths versus using the absolute paths. The generated email then has broken links. The email action should recognize this and include the absolute path of the item.

  8. Wait for the Workflow to complete

    I couldn't find a way to wait for a workflow started within the 'parent' workflow in the Nintex 365, I know that in the onpremises version it has this ability but I would need it in the Nintex 365...

    I tried to set and 'Wait for item change' with the column but this actually makes it hang forever as I think the workflow-column is showing 'Completed' but seems to be a different inner content the just a plain text so that the 'wait for' will wait forever.

  9. Allow management of LazyApproval phrases

    We need the option to specify custom approved phrases and associated mappings for LazyApproval, like we have for the On-Prem version (Site Settings > LazyApproval settings page)

    Open for voting  ·  Jon Hardy responded

    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.

  11. send to multiple signers with Docusign connectors

    When using the DocuSign populate template the product currently only allows us to input one signer, this is not useful if there is two or more signers.

  12. Office 365 XML Decode function

    In Nintex on-prem there is a function to decode XML values, so that special characters are no longer encoded, but shown as correct (eg. é, è, à,...).
    In Office 365 this is not available, but you have to convert each value via a replace action (for each known special character). Is it possible to have an action which can decode the XML an easier way?

  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.

  14. DocuSign SPO Actions need connection

    We need the ability to store the credential of the authorizing user. This will enable the workflows to process seamlessly without waiting for them to get the email and then authorize.

    We lose automation by having to send an email to someone to approve the action.

  15. docusign download all documents in the envelope

    Allow the DocuSign Action "download document" to download all of the documents associated with the envelope. The difference would be to append Combined to the REST call that is already being sent. It would be and easy fix.
    https://docs.docusign.com/esign/restapi/Envelopes/EnvelopeDocuments/get/

    Example: GET /restapi/v2/accounts/1703061/envelopes/44efc9e6-915e-4b1d-9b54-801410d6922d/documents/combined

  16. Global task delegation

    We moved from SP2010 to SPO and we need global task delegation back. When one of our employees goes on vacation, they need the option to delegate ALL nintex tasks to another user for a set date range. This "upgrade" to SPO and Nintex Online has been a nightmare for end users. Missing way too many important features.

  18. Workflow Actions for Site Collection Administration

    Would be great to have more workflow actions for site collection administration. Thinking about actions like "Set site collection administrator" or "Set sharing capabilities"

  19. 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..

  20. Double (or triple) signature on DocuSign

    When sending a document to DocuSign for signature, it is only possible to send it to a single signer, unless you use the NWC connector (that allows several signers).
    But using NWC makes us use 2 workflows instead of 1, and oblige us to send the document to a cloud storage service) .

    The O365 action should also allow 2 or more signers
