  3. Allow Rich Text in Document Generation

    The Document Generation action allows data from the workflow to be dropped into office documents. It does not however allow rich text to be injected into documents.

    For example, a rich text field in SharePoint will come into Nintex Workflow as HTML, which will then obviously just appear in a Word document as raw HTML, not interpreted as bold, italic, etc.

  4. Manage your Workflows tasks from a mobile device using the Nintex Mobile App.

    I recently try the Nintex Mobile App with our O365 SharePoint site. It's working well and i was surprised by the design on different devices and OS.
    It could be nice to improve this app with the ability to manage his tasks from his mobile and not just be able to fill a new form.

    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

  6. Update document and convert document controls for Office 365 version

    These functions are available in 2013 version but not in O365 yet. Will they be available for Office 365 in the near future?

    This capability has been released as the Document Generation actions. Document generation automates document generation from one or more templates with conditional inclusion. See Document generation help for more information.

  7. 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.

  8. Copy List Item

    The ability create copies of current list items (workflow context) should be included.

    Hi all,
    Copy an Item action has been released and is now available for use. You can find this action in the Integration category of the toolbox.
    Cheers,
    Lisa

  9. User Profile interaction

    It would be great to have an action that interacts and pulls information from the user profile service. For example if you are using a hybrid situation you could pull the users manager, birthday, department or all types of data to utilise in the workflow.

  10. MS Dynamics CRM 2016 Integration

    We recently upgrade to Nintex Workflow Enterprise but were disappointed to find the CRM Actions are not yet compatible with MS Dynamics CRM 2016. We wanted to use this as part of a SharePoint Nintex Form and Workflow but are told this action is not available for CRM 2016. This needs to be release as soon as possible.

  11. Allow images in Document Generation

    The Document Generation actions should allow images to be dynamically added to the document.

    On Premise has that so by right Document Generation for O365 should already have it.

  12. "Publisher Action" Setting on Query the User Profile action, not requiring a fixed password, using the publisher's permisions

    Currently a fixed password is required to query the user profile. There should be a setting for it to run with the WF publisher's permissions - rather than requiring them to enter a fixed password inside the query, and need to update it all the time, or to create a bespoke admin account for this query. A "publisher action" check box could be considered for other actions, too - creating SharePoint like App Steps

  13. Document Generation - Ability to Specify a Folder/Path

    It would be really nice if there were a setting inside the Document Generation action to specify a folder or path for the document that is generated. Currently we can only choose a library and all files go in the root of that library.

    Hi All,

    This has been released into service and is ready to use

  16. Filter action

    Since conditional starts are still under review, the addition of a filter action would greatly enhance Nintex Workflow for Office 365.

    There are several string manipulation actions available in the operations menu for string identification and splitting.

  18. Switch Action

    It would be great if you could create a switch action so that a field could be evaluated and have branches that you can implement business process dependent on the value selected. Similar to the functionality available in on Prem. You currently could do this a few ways but detailed examples become very messy.

  20. Please enter tooltip for each workflow

    It would be great if you could have a tooltip text for each workflow action describing the usage and link it to online help page. I'm not able to find some of the workflow actions usage under online help.

    You can access the specific help for an individual action by dragging it on the canvas, opening the configuration and clicking on help. Once your finished, undo the action to remove it.
