  1. Warning box if designer has been left open too long

    It would be great if there was some sort of warning on the designer page if it has been left open for too long. It is frustrating to come back to continue working on a workflow and when you to publish it get an error that the token has timed out. The only course of action is to refresh the page and lose your changes. It would better is there was a pop up or something so I could refresh before I started making changes.

  3. Change Title of O365 Add User to Group, add "SharePoint" to it

    There are two of these actions: one to add a user to a security group and one that looks very similar to add a user to a "group". The latter action applies to SHAREPOINT groups, and it would be helpful to just add the word "SharePoint" into the title of the "O365 Add User to Group" action in the designer. To reduce confusion and make it consistent with the title of the other similar action which is "O365 Add User to Security Group". In the attached file you will see visually how similar these two actions are.

  5. Fix Horizontal Scroll bar in Mac OSX

    I'm using Crome browser on a Mac running Yosemite. In the Workflow designer screen, there is no horizontal scroll bar showing, making it VERY hard (if not impossible) to edit items off the designer area.

  6. Use any function that returns True or False to assign value to boolean workflow variable

    My choices for setting a workflow variable of type Boolean are very limited. Allow designer to use any of the inline functions that result in a Boolean to accomplish this.

  8. Fix the advanced lookup when inserting a link to an email

    An attempt to insert a Workflow Variable into a link that is located in the body of an email action places the inserted Workflow Variable into the main body of the email and not the URL control that is being showed for the insert link feature.

  9. permissions change on current item

    it would be really awesome if you could alter the permissions directly with a simple activity on the current item instead of having to call the very lengthy o365 permission change activity to get to your current item (and potentially screw it up or have to change the password each time the application user password changes).

  12. Improvements to updating Calendar list as part of a workflow

    I've selected All Day Event in the List Item Properties when updating a calendar list item as part of a leave request workflow. The value is not being maintained when I select Save on the Create List Item dialog box. Also, if a two day period is selected, it appears as a single day on the actual calendar update. For instance leave start and end are Sept 15 & Sept 16, the item is written to Sept 15 with a12am-12am time frame. Ideally, you should be able to select "All day event" and have the calendar item span the two…

  18. Add GUID to list of fields to lookup by for a task

    When assigning a task, we get a task ID that is a guid. There is no way to lookup additional values for that task (comment, etc.).

    SharePoint Designer handles this by exposing a field called GUID on the task list that can be used to lookup values from that task.
