  1. Convert Word to PDF

    In former versions of NINTEX there was an action to convert Word documents til PDF files. This does not exist in NINTEX for Office 365. We have QMS systems in SharePoint being audited by external parties including government authorities. They only accept the PDF format for issued documents in our QMS system.

    • Customize copy item to and from fields

      It would be helpful if we could also use variables in the to and from field on the Copy Item workflow action.

      • Remove form redirect option from workflow start form

        On a workflow start form, when a redirect URL is set for the start button, it does not redirect when the button is clicked. This has since been confirmed as expected behaviour as the “Microsoft SharePoint workflow engine” will take control …start the WF and then redirect back to whatever Microsoft designed it to do. The Nintex Form does not have any context after you click the “Start” workflow button as its SharePoint Microsoft taking control from this point.

        To avoid confusion, can the option to set a redirect URL be removed from the workflow Start form altogether?

        • Make the Email body textbox larger or re-sizable

          The Email body textbox in the workflow designer is way too small when working with html formatted content. Would be nice to see the entire message instead of constantly scrolling up and down, and left and right.

          • Publish a Nintex Workflow with Powershell

            Currently, a workflow can only be deployed (i.e. saved) via the NWAdmin PowerShell (https://community.nintex.com/t5/Community-Blogs/Export-and-Deploy-a-Nintex-Workflow-with-PowerShell/ba-p/78577), using the "DeployWorkflow" command.

            If you want to publish it then you need to do it manually through the UI.

            Allowing to actually publish workflows through the NWAdmin PowerShell would be a great addition.

              • Export workflow as JPEG file

                Would be good to have JPEG file or other file format options while exporting the workflow.

                    • Set the task delegation comment into not required

                      When the task set to allow delegation, the user need to input the comment before delegate the task.
                      It will be useful if there is setting to make this comment into not required field.

                      • Workflows and Forms in a tenant

                        I think we should have an admin view which shows all nintex workflows and forms with site details. It helps with license management.

                            When amending password policy for more complicated (more than 10 characters) in the AD, the "Create User AD" action should support that change.

                                    Now, we are unable to use [Run as workflow owner] option under the following conditions.
                                    We would be glad if we could use [Run as workflow owner] option under the following conditions in the future.

                                    1) After starting workflow, it makes WF initiator's permission Read-Only.
                                    2) In Action Set, it enables [Run as workflow owner]
                                    3) In that Action Set, there is Flexi task action, which assignes many users to flexi task.
                                    4) In that Flexi task action, it sets Escalation. Once it becomes overdue, it turns to [Comlete Task].
                                    5) After Escalation's process proceeds, there is one minite pause…

                                    • Ability to provide link instead of attachment

                                      It would be great if we could provide a link to the dynamic document within the body of the email, rather than sending a pdf attachment. Many platforms are going in this direction as it helps with delivery rates, addresses compliance risk, etc.

                                      • Update Nintex Workflow Scheduler to process workflows in order of NextRunTime

                                        The stored procedure called by the Nintex Workflow Scheduler job does not contain an "order by" section. Because of this design, items execute in the order of the WorkflowSchedule table's default sort (column ScheduleID) rather than sequentially by the NextRunTime field. This forces newly scheduled workflows to always be last in line even in cases when they should really be first. I have had cases where not enforcing an order caused delayed workflows to run hours behind workflows they should have finished in front of.

                                        • Update Nintex Workflow Scheduler to track performance of scheduled workflows

                                          We need an easier way to view performance of scheduled workflows. The Nintex Workflow Scheduler is single threaded, which means that when a single workflow takes a long time to complete, it causes delay to other scheduled workflows. The Nintex provided process for identifying long-running, scheduled, workflows is to enable verbose logging and to comb through hundreds of lines to see when each workflow starts and finishes. If verbose was not enabled when your delay started, there is no mechanism to see which workflows caused it. Best case, I would like to see a dashboard or nwadmin command to retrieve…
