  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.

  3. add the ability to batch the modification of item permissions

    Hiya,

    Please could you change the behaviour of how the update item permission works, to modify the permissions in batches.

    There are instances where this fails due to the large number of items/users/groups that it's attempting update.

    It would be great if this could be done in smaller batches so that it doesn't timeout/fail

  4. Additional logging on the Copy To Sharepoint action

    For troubleshooting purposes, please add additional logging details of how the item property values are being processed.

    As well as, an option to cause the workflow to error if any of the item properties failed to copy.

  5. Create User AD action to support password policy change above 10 characters

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

  6. Run as workflow owner

    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…

  7. FTP connector

    It would be so great to have actions to be able to upload documents from a SharePoint library to an FTP server and also download documents from an FTP server to a SharePoint library

  8. Allow third-parties to create actions for Nintex Workflow

    I work for a university in California and one of my goals as a Nintex Application Developer is to convert a project from our SharePoint On-Premise environment to SharePoint for Office 365. One piece of technology we rely on converts a submitted form to PDF. As this is not a first-party technology, it is my understanding that such a thing is not currently possible in the Office 365 environment.

    It would be awesome if we could use this product with our Nintex for Office 365 workflows. Is this something that is being looked into? If it isn't already, it is…

  9. Delete items permanently and skip the recycle bin

  10. Update ad group

    An 'Update AD Group' action similar to the existing 'Update AD User' action, which would allow the workflow to update the properties of AD groups.

  11. Adding Set Multiple Variable Action

    Current only have set single action variable, if we need to set more variable need to add 1 by 1, and current Nintex always asks for the workflow size need to be smaller, if we have this action, we can save a lot of the workflow size.

  12. Action set - Run as workflow owner option to be visible anywhere on the workflow

    It was noticed that when the "Action set" action is placed on a workflow in the main stream, the option to run the action set as workflow owner is visible on the configuration of the action.
    But if the same action set was placed within a parallel actions, state machine, or any action that has other branches; the option to run with elevated permissions (as workflow owner/the account used to publish the workflow) is no longer visible.
    As developing workflows, we expect that an action will behave the same way wherever it is placed within a workflow. I personally believe…

  13. Nintex OneDrive for Business upload file

    Improving the functionality of the OneDrive Upload file to work with OneDrive for Business. As seeing that business and corporations are moving out to the cloud and Office 365 spaces and use Office/OneDrive for Business being able to uploading files to OneDrive to Business would make sense versus a personal OneDrive. Especially when dealing with business documents that are being generated or created.

  17. Dynamic Document Template Location Within Document Generation

    Please allow the ability to specify a dynamic template location through the use of a path variable. At present, in the Document Generation workflow action, you must select a specific file as the template.

    I need the ability to append random documents (from a location only known at runtime) to a generated document.

  18. 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…

  19. Allow control over "LazyApproval" labels/display

    We have C-level employees approving workflows via LazyApproval. Unfortunately this has a negative context and we are getting pushback by our workflow implementers to see if we can adjust this label.

    I see that the emails can be modified, but we are still seeing remnants of that verbage in our approval history.

    Is there a way I can modify this? Thank you.

  20. 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.
