  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    Open for voting  ·  Jon Hardy responded

    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.

  4. Option to use External Email for "Assign a Task" without LazyApproval

    Currently, when you do the "Assign a Task" action and use Lazy Approval, it will send from the No-Reply external email. If you don't use LazyApproval, it will use the build-in SharePoint O365 email address (and will come from the Site Name).

    We have several processes that mix LazyApproval and non-LazyApproval, and actions are going to users from different email addresses, causing a bit of confusion.

    Request is either (1) add the ability to use External Email for the Assign a Task action when LazyApproval is NOT used, or (2) come up with a way to display the Site Title…

    Thank you for the feedback. We are currently looking into providing the option to configure the sender display name for lazy approval emails.

  5. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. office 365 attachments

    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.

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. 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 :)

  18. DocuSign - Download Signed Document and DocuSign Envelope as one PDF-file

    A couple DocuSign-related Actions enables the user to download the signed document (including the signatures) or the certificate of completion (envelope).

    While using the DocuSign App within SharePoint, it stores a signed document and the envelope as one single .PDF-file. DocuSign already combined that two documents, to it would be great if Nintex can provide that same functionality.

  19. Add new activity for Nintec DocuSign Connector

    The Nintex DocuSign Connector currently doesn’t include a way to base 64 encode a document to pass it to the DocuSign web services. The DocuSign web service requires it to be base 64 encoded. It would be great to have an activity that base 64 encodes a document.
