  1. Currency math operations

    I can't do simple math operations on currency columns because they get treated like unparsable strings.

    "$100" * 1.43 = Exception casting "$100" to type double.

    Please provide a way to not have "$" as part of the value................

  2. Need a way to test user credentials and connections

    Need a way to test user credentials and connections. Workflow keeps indicating bad username format or password or something and I can't make sense of if it is the connection or the parameter to the query.

  3. Populate collection-variable from item

    When using the "set variable" action I can populate any list-field into a variable.

    However: if the field is of type "choice" or "lookup" and the field allows multiple values, I would assume that I could populate a collection, containing all values of my "multi-choice" or "multi-lookup" field.

    However, this is not the case. Instead a choice column with multiple values creates a JSON-string suggesting collection-of-strings. But this is just a string. Similar for lookups.

    Instead I have to query the list and return the result into a collection. This way I get a collection of values - why can't…

  5. Allow Variables to have a Default Value

    The ability to set a "Default Value" for most variable types is not available. It's available in the on prem version.

  6. Ability to identify when Nintex Workflow for Office 365 needs to be updated on a site where the Site Contents is in the modern experience

    Users should be able to identify when Nintex Workflow for Office 365 needs to be updated on a site whose site contents page is using the modern experience without having to switch to the classic experience or opening the app details. For example, the app should be red in the list or there should be subheading text under the app name that identifies the need for an update.

  7. Lazy Approval - Ability to somehow know WHO APPROVED IT!

    The lazy approval is a nice thing to have, but how can I let users have this feature when there is no way of knowing WHO THE APPROVER WAS??? When the auditors look to see who approved access to a system, they do not want to see "Approved by SharePoint App"....they want to see an individual's name.

  8. Better tracking of signatures in Adobe Sign

    The status and outcome outputs are completely useless if I want to leverage it's functionality. I want to track 20+ signatures of a document to sign and all I get from the nintex action is pending/completed statuses/outcomes, no individual data.

    Show who signed or didn't sign after expiration/completion is all I'm asking.

  9. Add SharePoint Group or a collection list of emails as recipients in Adobe Sign

    Statically writing emails to the Adobe Sign plugin was not ideal for the project I was working on. I wanted to use dynamic variables which query for email data and then send out the Adobe Sign emails.

  11. Add ServiceNow connector

    It would be great to have a serviceNow connector added as an action which allow you to add, update, delete and retrieve Servicenow data. This is already available in NWC but not yet in Nintex O365 Workflow

  12. Term Store synonyms and Abbrebiations

    Term Store Synonym

    Please allow users to select synonyms and abbreviations for this term Store. VIP - I have a list of schools from which users should select. Users should not be required to always enter the legal school name in the default label. Our users are forced to use only the Default Label. Please fix this ASAP. This is crucial for an application we are about to take live in a few weeks.

    Thanks
    Carol

  13. add an ability to deploy nintex apps via code?

    we have new sites we deploy via an automatic process.
    we would like to either
    1) have some way to automate nintex forms and workflows installation
    or
    2) be able to provision forms and workflows via API BEFORE we install the apps (it was working before and then stopped, and probably would be nice if that would be a supported scenario). in this case we can deploy all we can automatically and then the user/site admin would only need to install nintex forms and workflow apps.

  14. Slow Environment

    Working in the O365 version is excruciating. Forms are bad enough, however workflows are extremely slow. Opening/closing/saving actions, saving/publishing any size workflow takes a ridiculous amount of time. We are migrating approx. 80 workflows. This will take a year at the speed this system works. And that's not counting all the new forms we are constantly building. Can the performance of the O365 environment please be improved.

  16. Export file

    Each time export file, the file content no change, But the file content is not same, when using md5 check it.
    If possible export JSON for readable format is very Good.

  17. Termination of Component Workflow

    Today if a main workflow invokes a component workflow and the component workflow is terminated for some reason, then the component workflow does not return any status back to the calling workflow and the parent workflow keeps waiting forever. This is the case if the setting on the "Invoke Component Workflow" action is set to wait for component workflow to complete and wait for the outcome

    There should be a way for the component workflow to return back the status in case it is terminated

    Hi Sridhar,

    The issue we currently have is the workflow engine does not send us any kind of event to indicate that the component workflow (or any workflow) has suspended meaning we can’t send any notification back to the parent workflow. We are currently talking with Microsoft to see if they can provide us the info we need, will update you once we know more..

    Cheers, Rick

  18. Nintex Governance: Connection Manager & Workflow publishers

    Best practice around Connection manager would be: Create tenant level connections with appropriate set of users who will design workflows. To ensure local site admins don't create unnecessary connections we need a central setting to disable site level shared connections and personal connections.

    Workflow publishers: We need to add/remove each user to the list of allowed workflow publishers. There is no way to use AD groups. It'll be great if Nintex can enable AD groups in workflow publisher settings.

  20. Daylight Saving Time Support

    Currently our Site workflows have been firing an hour early due to Daylight Saving Time ending for this year. This is apparently not a bug for some reason, and should be considered such.
