  2. Email distribution groups

    Hi, thanks for adding the ability to email external email addresses! I thought this would work for internal distribution groups as well, but that seems to not be the case. It would be fabulous if we could do this (we have a forwarding account set up for it now, but it's a pain).

  3. Office 365 un-assign license action missing

    Currently there exists an action to assign an office 365 license to a user. However, there is no action to remove a license from a user. I'd like to be able to do this via workflow. This would be useful for off-boarding users, as well as writing workflows to transfer licenses from one user to another when needed.

  5. Create a "For Each Item in the list"

    This will just go through each item in the list once you pick the list you are targeting not having to set up any collections or such.

    either fix the issue when creating documents based on Word Content Types, or allow Nintex Workflows to run as SP2010 Workflows, rather than SP2013 Workflows. SP Designer affords us, at least, the option to run as SP 2010 workflow when creating the workflow.

  8. Enhance the Salesforce Connectors

    1. Allow a user to paste in credentials and test to ensure the credentials are correct without having to save and publish the workflow.
    2. Have a query that pulls in the Salesforce objects available based on the permissions from #1.
    3. Display the objects' fields based on the object type selected

    Perhaps create a unique designer area for managing Salesforce data. Most users who may need to interact with a Salesforce connector may not know how to grab the correct fields and thus not want to build a workflow using the action.

  9. Managed Holiday

    Would be good if we could still set this in O365 so that calculations between dates won't include weekends/bank holidays (the days we set in the managed holidays)

  10. The ability to combine all documents into a single output file

    The ability to add a ‘folder’ or a group of files to the action which would effectively combine all those documents into a single output file.

    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

  12. Add an action to add new (apps) Lists or Doc libraries to site

    We are programmatically create lists/libraries for a specific secure process. We used to be able to do so on prem, but with O365 we lost this ability. Please make 0365 as powerful as onprem ASAP to allow a migration.

  13. Add Labels to Actions

    Hi;
    It is very difficult to follow and debug a workflow without having all 4 text labels.
    Having them as an integral part of the GUI interface is just great. Having them as properties will be good

  15. 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.

  16. Pause until a certain time

    It would be nice if there were an action to pause the workflow until a certain time. This would complement the existing actions "Pause until Date" and "Pause for Duration". This is especially usefull as the 'On Prem' platform functionality to schedule a workflow is not (yet) available in O365 SPO.

  18. Support mutiple users with a single Office 365 update item permissions action

    In Office 365 you can enter multiple email addresses separated by a semicolon it would be nice to support this in the Office 365 update item permissions action.
