    Hi All,

    We’ve just released the ability to capture comments from via LazyApproval, apart from that you can also easily store and retrieve those comments (including ones made via Nintex Forms or directly via the task) into a new task action variable (Task comments).

    For those who are specifically interested in capturing from LazyApproval the way you do is by supplying the outcome separated by a comma and then the comments .e.g. ‘Rejected, Need more detail before can approve’.

    Check it out and let me know what you think…

    Cheers, Rick

  3. 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.

  4. 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

  6. 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.

  7. Send document to repository should be able to work cross site

    The office 365 Send document to repository action should be capable of taking a document from a document library and moving the document into a repository on another site.

    Thanks for the feedback. We are looking at options to interface with the Share feature pending on API support in a future release.

    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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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).

  12. Please add error handling!

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

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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)

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  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
