  1. alert

    Nintex O365 Workflow failure should monitor 'Terminated' workflows and send out alert when it happens. We have a few incidents caused by terminated workflows but we weren't aware of.

  2. Add a "show all attachments" option to the file upload control

    Currently, although you can set a default file upload control on new responsive forms, this doesnt have the functionality to be able to display all attachments in a single file upload control in scenarios where there are more than one file upload control on a form.

    It would be useful to have the ability to display all attachments on a list item in the form, regardless of which file upload control they were added to.

    example use case: multi page form has an file upload control on each page, but at the moment you can't display a summary of all…

  3. List Attachment size on Nintex universal forms

    Can attachment size for Nintex from be raised to 50 MB?
    SharePoint Online lists allow 50MB attachments

    Nintex forms should ideally match O365 limits

  4. Take preservation/retention policy into account

    When retention policy is activated on O365, it's not possible to delete Nintex workflows. It's also not possible to uninstall the O365 Workflow and Forms app from a site.
    The only solution is to deactivate retention policy

  6. Inserting hyperlink fields into emails and tasks

    When you take a sharepoint hyperlink field and put it into a task form or email, by default the value of the field is converted to string and looks like this:
    Salesforce - from side bar
    {"__metadata":{"type":"SP.FieldUrlValue"},"Description":"https:\/\/na67.lightning.force.com\/lightning\/r\/Opportunity\/0060z00001wLhd7AAC\/view","Url":"https:\/\/na67.lightning.force.com\/lightning\/r\/Opportunity\/0060z00001wLhd7AAC\/view"}

    By default, it should take the display text of the hyperlink and build a link out of it with the URL

  10. Custom email headers to bypass Exchange rule adding external e-mail warning

    We have some Exchange Online rules that add a big red warning at the top of e-mails that come from external sources, urging people to be more cautious and that they may be phishing attempts. It would be helpful if we would have the ability to add a custom e-mail header to e-mails sent from the "Assign a task" or "Start a task process" action, at a minimum when using Lazy Approval (which should give Nintex more control over the e-mails).

    Adding such a custom header like "X-My-Custom-Header: <GUID" would allow us to add exceptions to the rule in Exchange…

  12. Workflow Entitlement Consumption Over Time

    Whether from Hawkeye Cloud or via APIs, we cannot report the number of productive workflows we did "consume" over time. The Nintex customer portal gives us the current consumption without any history. APIs and Hawkeye can additionally give us the cumulative number of workflows created overtime. This latest approach does not take into consideration workflows removed, unpublished, or deleted (it is just a cumulative number of created workflows day after day).

    Hence we don't have the history and data to analyze our real usage/consumption over time and report internally as well the results of our actions (for example: adoption campaigns,…

  13. Entitlement Alerting Feature

    Possibility to activate and customize alerts that are pushed to a list of contacts we can indicate when entitlements such as the count of productive workflows and forms* are reaching a certain consumption ratio (e.g 80%), and alerts are repeated on a regular basis (monthly, weekly, customizable) until the consumption is under the predefined ratio again.

    This would ensure that we are well aware of the situation to then review and take the proper course of action timely (plan procurement of additional resources, archive / delete flows/forms) as opposed to be checking the customer portal regularly which is a routine…

  14. Reminder settings to have both retained item and expired item

    It would be great if we can have both of those reminders by setting [Start task process] action.
    1. Send a reminder when a certain days have passed since the workflow task had been submitted.
    2. Also, send a reminder when it passed the expiration day set in a list item.

  15. Non-white workflow designer canvas background

    Would appreciate a not-so-bright-white workflow designer canvas background. As a designer and being a little sensitive to bright white pixels as a side effect of some medication, I would appreciate a theme setting or anything less bright white. See attached example.

  16. Better Error Messages

    Error messages should describe where the error is happening or what control/function is having the issue.

    Generic error messages such as "SingleTaskAction - save : TypeError: i is null" are not very helpful when trying to troubleshoot.

  17. Nintex Workflow Action display the login name of the SharePoint AD Group instead of the Display Name

    When a domain group is added in the To field of Send Email action (or any action with field person/group) the name Group name is displayed. Once the action is saved it changes to ID format. (c:0t.c|tenant|<group ID>)

    We would like to have ability to keep the Group name instead of Login name as this confusing for the user.

  18. Dynamically include multiple attachments in send notification action.

    ref:00D90q6Cb.5002v2sDar4:ref

    Within a txt variable, multiple files can be added, but only the first file is attached in a send notification action.

    Please consider this scenario, as it would be useful to dynamically attach files from a list.

  19. Conditional Start Workflow when items are modified and: Is Current Version (previous value)

    It will be nice to have the same options and settings that exists in Nintex Workflow for On-Prem, Conditional Start Workflow to start when items are modified and: Is Current Version (previous value).

  20. Workflow Publishing Restriction Triggers Custom Message

    We have the possibility to restrict the ability of people to publish new workflows at the tenant level. We would like to use it before if we do, the publishers will get a generic error message and will not know the reason of this restriction nor who to contact to be authorized to publish a flow.

    Can we therefore add the feature to personalize or extend the error message when one is unable to publish a flow? alternatively to add a personalized message upfront when publishers start developing their new flows?
