  1. Update list item catch exceptions / ignore errors

    When updating multiple list items for example tasks it would be usefull to have a ignore errors checkbox to resume with the workflow if the update list item can't find the item. This would help because tasks disappear when 1 of 3 tasks is approved. But a parallel loop which updates the tasks with information still tries to find and update all 3 tasks but only 1 is still there. Workflow then crashes.

  2. Custom Nintex Live Services Email to Users

    When using the Yammer Post action, it send the users posting an email to authorization to post and is a generic requests which is very confusing for end users and they may not have an idea why this is being sent or from what process.

    Allow the addition of custom message, or customization of email.

  3. Yammer Post Action update capability

    I really wish we could pass through Email addresses so users are tagged in the post and sent a notification.

    Also post on behalf of another user without those confusing authorization messages.

  4. Move list item into recycle bin when delete

    Good to have the possibility to choose (by parameter for example) whether list item should be permanently deleted or moved to recycle bin.

  5. Error if sending to invalid external email

    If using the action to send emails to an external email, I would like for there to be an option to error if the email being sent to is invalid. Otherwise, the workflow will continue as if the email was sent and no one will know that it wasn't sent.

  6. Populate task id as soon as the task is created

    Essentially the same request (except for Nintex Workflow for Office 365) as done by Jimbo Alba at:
    http://nintex.uservoice.com/forums/229405-1-nintex-workflow-for-sharepoint/suggestions/6440022-populate-task-id-as-soon-as-the-task-is-created

    All task actions can populate a task id variable but usually populate the variable only after the task is completed by the assigned user. I would like to recommend that this behavior be changed so that the task id variable is populated when the task item is created and assigned. This way I can query the task item even before it's task action is completed.

    Hi all! Jason, In your scenario could you give me more details on what you are trying to do with the task ID, before the task is completed? Thanks.

  8. Make Query User Profile use initiator credentials

    Allow a user profile lookup that's initiated using the logged in user's credentials or session (i.e. the initiator), or at least the workflow publisher's identity.

    The "Office 365 Query User Profile" lookup currently requires you to enter a username and password.

    More details:
    SharePoint Designer 2013 has the ability to query without credentials using the "User Profiles:" action.

    SD 2013 example:
    Lookup for String
    Data source: User Profiles
    Field from source: First name
    Return field as: As String
    Field: Account Name
    Value: Current Item: Modified By

  11. Add "contains" and others to "Run if"-Action

    An additional "contains" test would be great to test in Run if statements for example if value is part of a multiple choice field.

    If possible also "starts with", "is empty", "does not contain" would be very helpful additional operators.

  12. Office 365 update item permissions: allow tenant security group

    In the "Office 365 update item permissions" action, we have availabity to configure user (email) or SharePoint group name (one or several) but it is not possible to register a security group which has been declare at the tenant level (when we configure this kind of group, the workflow is suspended and the result is "Failed to resolve user xxx" and issue is the same for a group name or email group name).

    It will be interesting to implement this feature to avoid the creation of SharePoint group in the website and duplicate information between web and tenant.

  14. 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).

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  18. either fix the issue when creating documents based on Word Content Types, or allow Nintex Workflows to run as SP2010 Workflows, rather than

    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.

  19. 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.
