  1. Office 365 update item permissions: Azure IP restrictions

    We have conditional access restrictions in place for our O365 tenants which is preventing us to use some of the Nintex O365 workflow actions. In particular authentication for internal users is only allowed from an approved range of IP addresses. Any workflow action using the "Site and user administration" connection are failing to run as authentication is failing.
    Proposed workarounds from Nintex were to whitelist whole Azure IP restrictions or to use a service account that would have access to all of the sites. Both solutions are considered highly risky for our organization.

  2. Workflow start trigger summary

    It would be good if the triggers to start a workflow were available in the workflow list, so you can check which ones are enabled or only manual start without having to go into the workflow itself

  3. Document Generation - Ability to conditionally hide sections of a document

    In the Nintex Document tagger, please give us the ability to show or hide (i.e include or not include) portions of a document based on the value of a Yes/No variable. This could be done by having a tag that has the name of a variable followed by a suffix to allow us to mark where to start and end a portion to conditionally include.

    For example, for a Yes/No workflow variable named "Show Terms and Conditions", you could have the following tag:

    <<Variable_Show_u0020_Terms_u0020_and_u0020_Conditions_IncludeStart>>

    Hello world. This is a portion of a word document to conditionally show or hide and…

  4. conditional start on Blank Dates

    It would be really nice if we could look at the date column within a SharePoint and check if the date is blank or not and start a workflow based on that. It is really challenging when we only get greater than/less than and equals for date fields.

    If Date is NOT NULL(or blank) then Run the workflow....for example.

  5. Document Generation Excel Column Resize

    I would like Nintex Document Generation (DocGen) to have the ability to resize the column dynamically based on the excel setting template.

     I want this because excel tables allow for different types of formatting.

    I put all my header columns in, then put all my table tags in then I click "Insert Table" in the ribbon
    (It should automatically recognize your header columns and then format that range into a table otherwise you can select the range). The problem is the table doesn't expand per each row of data.

  6. Support MFA for workflow

    I have read that Nintex workflows does not support users with MFA. i always get this " The username is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the username specified." for some users who may have MFA enabled. are there any alternatives we can do? when will this be supported?

  8. 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…

  9. Change basic auth encoding

    Encoding for basic auth when provided with user and pass doesnt work in the Web Request action.

    Also, change the storage options for the response of Web Request to something other than choice/http/text. Text doesnt allow enough room to capture entire tokens for auth.

  14. Better Error Notifications When Publishing

    Errors when publishing a workflow can be difficult to troubleshoot since the error messages are generic.

    For example
    "Error publishing workflow. Specified data type does not match the current data type of the property"

    It would be helpful to know what property it is talking about, the data type it is expecting, what is trying to send it the incorrect value and what value it is trying to send.

  20. Template matching with DocuSign using Nintex Workflow action

    We will like to use Nintex Workflow DocuSign actions and to be able to make use of the automatic template matching.
    It looks like this is not possible with Nintex Workflow for Office 365, Version: 1.0.4.3 as this feature is not implemented.

    Automatic template matching compares the files that you upload with all previously saved templates. Based on the sensitivity setting you select, if the match is close enough, you can choose to apply the matching template to your document, either automatically or with a notification. When you apply a matched template, all aspects of the template are applied to…
