    What's equivalent action to Store data in Nintex online? If none, then what's alternative?

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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.

  7. 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"

  8. 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

  10. Update User Profile Action. Nuff Said.

    It would be nice to have an action to update user profiles. Currently the only way is to use a SOAP web service. This would be very useful in onboarding/offboarding, mass updates when titles,department names, etc.. change.

  11. Favorite Actions

    Create a tab that lists favorite actions. This would allow to easily access actions that you use a lot (like log history), instead of having to scroll through all those tabs.

    Thank you for your suggestion. In the mean time try typing in one of the words of the action name in the search it will appear in the toolbox e.g. log for log to history. This will also avoid the need to scroll through tabs.

  12. Populate multiple lines variable or column

    Hi,

    I can't populate a variable with multiple lines. Sometimes it is required to save in a variable more than 2 lines, but I see that there is only one line.
    This is also for multiple lines columns. If I want to populate them "manually" in the workflow, the textbox to write the values is a single line.

    I don't know if there is a way to make "enters", or write multiple lines.

    I appreciate your help.

  15. Link to item in My Workflow Task List Webpart

    Need to be able to have a link to the item the workflow is running on in the task list. Many people use My Workflow Tasks to access the items to review and then approve or reject.

    I would like to select what attachments I would like to send in a both an email and a task. This would work just like On Prem 2016 where I can click the add attachment link and choose what i want to include in different emails or task notifications.

  17. Table to explain old and new terms

    I am using a newer version of Office 365 to create a Nintex workflow. Workflow terms like "Request Approval" are not in my version. So, what is the new term? Is it "Set Document Approval"? Because that does not work like I need it to, which is to automatically create sub-branches called "Declined" and "Approved."

    Hi, Are you looking for a task action with a single outcome? If so, you can use either the start a task process or assign a task action and create your own content type with only one outcome, this can be inherited from the exiting content type. In the outcomes configuration you can chose to use your content type rather than the default. Please email me if you have any issues with this. Thanks.

  19. Office 365 Stop Sharing Action

    It would be nice to have an action to stop sharing a list item or document with someone.

    We have the set permissions action and that works nice, but this goes one step further and removes any custom permissions done with Sharing because that is different that just setting permissions because admin can still have access through the sharing.
