  1. 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.

  2. Unable to import same Workflow settings on "Set Workflow Variable" configured with "List Lookup" on a different site collection.

    Unable to import same Workflow settings on "Set Workflow Variable" configured with "List Lookup" on a different site collection. As compares if we use "Update List Item" Workflow action configured with "List Lookup" the settings are imported with no problem.

  3. Direct / more "intuitive" way to configure typical reminder settings for tasks

    I repeatedly see the requirement that a Task is assigned to a user and there should be an E-Mail reminder to the assignee every x days - starting y days after the Task has been assigned.

    Today (please correct me if I overlook something obvious here…) the in my eyes rather bothersome way of configuring this would be
    - create a separate Workflow variable V
    - Use a separate "Calculate Date" Action to add y days to today's date and store this value in V
    - in the Configuration Settings for the Task Action, use V as the "Due Date" …

  4. Component Workflow - Visibility

    As of now, any component workflows created in a Office 365 is visible to all users within the tenant. This will create confusion in scenarios where in the component workflow is required for a specific site collection and not to be visible for others.

    A visibility flag might help a long way to target component workflows for specific site collections rather than entire O365 tenant

    Thanks for the great suggestion guys, I’ve added this backlog and will keep you updated on a time frame on when we can deliver this feature update. Would love to hear any other thoughts/suggestions on how we can make component workflows even better..?

  5. Support for operators in *Wait for field change in current item* action

    Wait for item update action in Nintex on-prem enables developer to use different operator based on need. Please enable operators in Nintex online action Wait for field change in current item action

    e.g. Status != Submitted

  6. attachments

    Allow for a Collection Variable of file URLs to be attached like on-prem. We rarely know how many attachments we need to attach and attaching a number of string variable limits this number.

  7. Allow "<Noreply@...>" to be replaced by actual reply-to email

    Currently, I can change the display name for the sender of an email generated by a workflow, but I cannot change the reply email address in the email from "<noreply@workflownotification.com>". This creates confusion at the recipients' end.

  8. Export action set

    The ability to export action sets and import them into other workflows would be a great piece of functionality for us to have!

  9. Enable Date formatting functions

    Date format is one of the common use-case in Nintex workflows. It'll be great if Nintex can build this feature.

  10. Increase attachment size limit for Send An Email action

    When sending a email to an external email and attaching a file, the file size limit is a concern. Need a way to increase the limit.

  12. Confirmation or Error when Workflow is trusted

    In Workflow Settings-->General, clicking on "Grant access to Workflow" then "Trust it" does not result in a confirmation that it was completed successfully or an error that it was unable to complete because I am not a tenant administrator. Also, once the grant has completed successfully, re-entering this screen should show that it has already been granted Trusted access. If I enter this screen without tenant administrator rights then I should get a warning to that fact and be only able to review whether the Trusted procedure has been completed or not.

  13. User interface appears in several languages

    While most options appear in English language, occasionally some stuff are displayed in Spanish. WTF? Please unify the localization, instead of mixing it up, because later on is hard to use the search box (should I search in English or in Spanish?)

  14. Log component workflow history to caller workflow history

    Right now I can't find any way to see the history of a component workflow called from another workflow. If possible it'd be great to have component workflows log to the caller's history.

  15. Add the possibility to add a different tasklist to your assigned task

    Now it's only possible to use one tasklist in each workflow. It would make it easier to share tasks with different (external) groups of people without giving them the option to see other tasks from other users of the Workflow/site.

  16. Choosing workflow to start

    It would be great to have dropdown menu with existing list or site workflows depending on choosen workflow type within "Start workflow" action, or sorta lookup on list of workflows. Because it can prevent mistypings, and would be rather convenient.

  17. when comparing with person field - cannot choose person

    when I'm trying to make a comparison of field "modified by" , I cannot put in speciefic person, like in Nintex Workflow 2010, in other words field is not a peoplepicker, just a singleline text field. So I cannot choose person to compare.

  18. Copy Workflow

    If I save a workflow under a different name - to create a copy - the original workflow seems to disappear. It would be better if the original workflow remained with the old name.

  19. Ability to make comments optional/mandatory for task outcomes

    In SharePoint On-premises a power-user have the ability to make Comments mandatory or optional for each task-outcome. This feature is not available in Nintex Online.

    it will be great if Nintex can enable same for Online as this will help power users.

  20. Ability to add task outcome in UPPERCASE via task process action

    Can we have the option to be able to add task outcomes either in UPPERCASE or LOWERCASE and not default to the first letter being in uppercase and the rest reverting to lowercase?

    Consider the below steps:


    1. Navigate to workflow designer


    2. Add a "Task Process" action to the canvas


    3. Double-click the Task Process action to configure it.


    4. You will notice that under the Task outcomes section, there are two outcomes: Approve and Reject.


    5. Rename the task outcome "Approve" to APPROVE.


    6. Click away from the text box and you will notice that it has changed back to "Approve"


    7. Same behaviour occurs…
