  1. ADFS Claims Web Request Support

    Call Web Service and Web Request actions should have built in support for mixed authentication including Windows ADFS Claims auth. Due to how ADFS Claims requires tokens for authentication, the current out of the box action does not support this.

    • Start or End Workflow (Locally / On Another Site / On Another List)

      While we have the ability to Start / End a workflow on the local list, the only option we have for starting a Workflow on another Site or List is to use a Web Service Request.

      This is terribly convoluted, and extremely inconvenient (especially if there are questions of authentication) for new users.

      It would be much nicer if we could have the ease of just pulling an Action into our Designer and being able to configure it much like you would configure any of the other actions that can interact with Off List items.

      Furthermore, please give us the…

      • create item in another site action

        Site action loses data in the rest of the fields when the URL Is altered.

        It would be nice to have the data displayed immediately when the first URL is entered.

        • Import Holidays

          It would be a good idea if it would be possible to import the holidays (Easter, Christmas and so on) from a file (iCal or something) for each year.

          Christmas is at the same date every year but Easter and some other Holidays are flexible. So you have to add the flexible Holidays manually which is not fun.

              • Add different colors to the lines that indicate a 'Run If' and 'For Each'.

                If you have multiple 'Run If' and/or 'For Each' in one workflow, it would be easier to identify them if they were each a different color.

                    • Reading an attached email as a document attachement

                      When we attach a document to emails in Outlook and send it to a SharePoint list to be readed by Nintex, there is no problem for getting the documents and attaching them to the list item.

                      But if you attach an email with document Inside, SharePoint / Nintex ignore them so they can't be attach to the list item.

                      Could Nintex decode an attached email like a document attachement.

                      • Nintex Live Action - Exchange Online Update Item "All Day Event" malfunction

                        We are using Exchange Online update calendar item. We found that the All Day event is malfunction.
                        At the meanwhile , we uses Exchange Online create calendar item. It can create a event with All Day Event.
                        Although we use the same setting in create and update, all day event was not working.

                        • Ability to retain task history during workflow history purge.

                          The majority of the workflows we build are for invoice approvals. These invoice approvals require we retain user action history such as approve / disapprove actions which as stored in the task history of the workflow history. For audit and legal reasons, our clients are required to retain this history.

                          The workflow history purge options available currently purge data out of this section of the history. The verbose data that is taking up the majority of the space in the history lists and tables is stored in the Action History portion workflow history.We find this data is only helpful during…

                          • Publish and Submit a Workflow

                            In the form "Set Title and Description" you cannot differ if you will "safe" or "publish" your workflow, as the form is the same.

                            Idea: Change the Submit-Icon to those of the Action you want to submit. This means, that if you want to submit a Safe-Action, the icon looks like the Safe-button (floppy disk). If you want to submit a Publish-action, the icon looks like the Publish-icon.

                              Hi, the action "Wait for item update" could accept 2 or more fields to evaluate instead of only 1.
                              Ex: Wait for: Field 1 to equal "abc" AND/OR Wait for: Field 2 to not equal "zwx"

                                  It would be nice to reference the site name with the to, from or subject lines of the email. The only place you can reference a site is from the body of the email its self.

                                  • Audit Log Files for Nintex Forms & Workflows

                                    Currently there is not audit logs for track workflow changes. It would be helpful to have a functionality that would allow Administrators to monitor activities in SharePoint, Nintex Forms and Nintex Workflows. Essentially something like the Audit logs for SharePoint.

                                    Please provide a feature to track all administrator changes like create, update, delete and publish Nintex forms and workflow.

                                      Have a Test/Debug mode option in the Workflow Settings that you can check an uncheck. Then for each action, allow a check box to enable or disable test mode.

However when you uncheck the Test Mode box in Workflow setting (meaning its going live) then each action with Test Mode still checked would become disabled. This would be a good time saver for actions like Log to History and Send Notification where you only want them in your workflow for…

                                      • Managed allowed actions should restrict the users from editing the actions

                                        Currently Managed allowed actions in Central administration restricts users from accessing those restricted actions. However, if the user has access to a workflow with restricted actions; user cannot add new actions but can edit the restricted actions.

                                          There should be the ability for a workflow to move a file that it is not running on from a source library on one site to another library on another site.
