  1. Give specific Workflow actions an other color in the designer

    Hi Nintex,

    I would like to have the posibility to mark a workflow action with a color (so that I as a designer know it's an important action). I have workflows which i use on different environments. I use actions with site/library specific parameters, which I have to change sometimes. If I could give them a color I would know right away that I have to check these actions in stead of going through the whole workflow.
    It could also be very helpful in the development phase of a project.

  3. Report on Billable Acctions

    When viewing workflows on the Workflow Gallery page, it would be helpful to see the count of Billable Actions and Total Actions.

  4. Task action to assign task based on the order of user input in the multiple person column

    Scenario:
    1) The user inputs a person in people list column (multiple allowed) with is order

    User 3
    User 1
    User 2

    2) Then using Nintex Workflow for Office 365 - Task action to assign the task based on the person column as step 1. The task has been configured to assign task as Serial one at the time.

    Expectation is the Task order will be
    User 3
    User 1
    User 2

    But the result is the order based on the order of the user added to the site.

    For example the user added to the site with this order…

  5. Add link to terminate workflow within the error notification

  6. Create PDF from HTML, Enhanced Rich Text field (with Pictures and Tables), or Other File

    Would really like to see the ability to create PDFs that can be saved to Document Libraries that are generated from existing HTML or from any other type of file format (email, .rtf, etc.) Not looking for additional tagging or anything (like what DocGen provides). Simply looking for a PDF Converter for an existing file.

    Doc Gen has been unsuccessful for generating PDFs from existing HTML content that includes formatted tables. Really could benefit from being able to generate PDFs on the fly from already existing content.

  7. Line Breaks in MultiLine Plaintext Textboxes?

    How about supporting the ability to do new lines in multi-line plain text textboxes?

    An example would be a comments field, where multiple comments are entered. You should be able to use the Regular Expression action to replace a temporary character (eg ~) where you want the line break to be, with \r\n. The Regular Expression action even tells you to use .NET syntax, which is \r\n but it doesn't work.

    I've googled and googled for a solution but can't find a solution for Nintex 365. Seems like such a simple thing but it can't be done, at least not…

  8. Add 'All must agree on a specific outcome' as completion criteria

    We would like to add this option on the Task action in Nintex Workflow for Office 365.

    All must agree on a specific outcome

    [ ref:00D90q6Cb.5002v2XyiIX:ref ]

    All assignees must select the outcome specified in the 'Outcome' drop down list. If any assignee chooses an alternative outcome, all pending tasks will be set to 'not required', the 'outcome achieved' variable will be set to 'no' and the overall task outcome will be blank.

    Hey Elisabeth,

    Have you tried using ‘Wait for percentage of a response’ as a Completion Criteria, setting the Required Percentage as 100%? With this setup, if all users have not selected the required outcome, it will then use the default outcome.

  9. Plain Text Emails

    A system we use strips out all html from emails making it hard to comprehend the email being sent out. Previously we were able to select "Plain Text" option for the body of an email. This worked perfectly on prem.

    Any chance to bring it back?

  11. Report in Customer Portal to Show SharePoint Site and List with associated Workflows

    At present, the customer portal shows how many workflows are being used from the license pool, but not which SharePoint sites or lists they are associated to, making it difficult to locate potentially stale workflows or preform cleanup.

    Please include a report within the customer portal usage section, identifying SharePoint site collections and lists to match up to the used workflows.

  12. Central Place to terminate Suspended workflows either at list or site level

    Can we get a central place within nintex online to terminate or retry suspended workflows?
    Use case: we have a list, managed by users, that syncs specific info from one list to another. The source list had a choice column change and thus has started suspending wf's because users did not make sure destination choice column contained the same values. Now we have 200+ suspended workflows in the source list. Due to the nature of a suspended wf, we cannot just kick off a new on those items, even after the issue with the choice values are fixed between the…

  13. Nintex Sign & SharePoint Metadata

    There is a serious gab in the O365 Nintex for adobe sign action. We need the ability to return some sort of SharePoint Library ID so then we can update any other metadata that is associated with the file. It is fine to just give us an ID so then in a second action we can do the update by ID.

  14. Make Managed Metadata (taxonomy) actions

    I would like to see some easy to use fields for Managed Metadata. I should be able to get/set an MM field, single or multi, in one live action. It seems like an easy one to make and would save workflow development time.

  15. Support Signed card payloads for Actionable Message

    In some scenarios, an Actionable message is not working using Nintex Workflow.
    Microsoft has suggested for Nintex to implementing signed cards which work in all cases and are fundamentally more secure since they do not rely on DNS records.

    At this stage signed cards are currently not supported

  16. Share Workflow among developers

    I would like to share the workflow with the other developers. But I could not find a way to do it. Nintex should allow multiple developers to modify the same workflow.

  17. It would be very helpful to be able to change the default font used for html emails

    Hi, we are using an older Outlook client that pre-dates Callabri. The default text comes out as Times New Roman. Looks unprofessional. We change the font in task action emails, or send email actions, but for dynamic content or variables it constantly resets upon publication. Is very irritating and customers are complaining for high profile business applications where corporate branded emails are necessary.

  18. Defense mechanism for large workflows

    Before publishing large workflows it will be useful if the designer could alert users of:
    - how many actions are being used
    - recommendation of any best practise to adopt

  20. Create Modern Site Collections / Sites

    There is currently no support from the Office 365 Create Site or Office 365 Create Site Collection actions to create modern team or modern communication sites. This would be extremely valuable for site generation automation and controlling access to site generation while still giving users to option to user a modern site.
