  1. Scheduled Workflow to run on a Specific Date each month

    ref:00D90q6Cb.5002v2qIVOT:ref

    Currently, the Workflow scheduler would only allow a workflow to be run every X number days, however this would be inaccurate if an end user wanted it to run on the 15th of each month.

    Furthermore, please consider adding an option to run on specific days/intervals, i.e 2nd Saturday of the Month.

  3. Allow Assign to-do task to set value for Content type field with Multiple People or Group

    Currently the Task action unable to set value for the field that has multiple people or groups. It only supports a single user or group.
    Would like to have the ability to be able to set value for multiple people via assign task.

  4. retrigger action with error

    When ever an error occurs in workflow the only option as of now is to terminated the workflow and restart new workflow.
    Why don't we have an option to retrigger the action, after correction, which has error.

  5. DelegateTask web service method - allow customization of generic message

    When delegating a task via the DelegateTask web method, allow the ability to customize the Nintex generic built in message in the Site Settings > Message Templates section. This will give flexibility on if you want to include a username or not in the message as well as customize what you would like to say.

  6. Enable third-party actions that print to PDF to recognize page breaks

    In various workflows that I've created at my job I rely on a third-party solution to print a form to PDF. As some forms need to use page breaks, they are not recognized when printing to PDF from third-party solutions.

    I am creating this suggestion in the hopes that third-party tools will be able to recognize page breaks which currently are only recognized by Nintex' own "Print to PDF" button for list items.

  7. Flexi Task Reminder settings

    Would be great if there were better filtering options or configuration options for Reminder email settings in Flexi Tasks. For Example, currently the Flexi Tasks will trigger 2 emails if the date falls within the week, would be great if you could say something like if Status/Variable/etc. = "" then send reminder or If Date falls within a 3 week window then send reminder.

  10. Query/Parse JSON Nintex Workflow for Sharepoint 2019

    In our current (sharepoint 2013) en future (sharepoint 2019) environment we want to use rest services based on json. Currently other services in our environment must translate the API response to sharepoint into XML because in Nintex can only parse the XML body using the Query XML action.

    I find this strange because json is very common for rest. I know there is a string manipulation workaround using expressions as

    (?<=(EMail&quot;\:&quot;))[^"]+

    I you have multiple fields than it will become quite messy to work like this. I would like a equivalent for Query XML as "Query JSON"

  12. Handling list of users with non-claim format user names in the "set item permissions" action

    I have logged a support ticket#00302605, but advised to log it here as well.
    The “Assign Flexi task” action can handle the non-claims format user names, while the “Set item permissions” can’t, they are not consistent.
    The users have all be migrated to claims in SP2013, but we have a large number of workflows that use the non-claims format user names, we are expecting the “Set permission” actions to be able to handle the non-claims format user names like the “Assign Flexi task” action.

  13. Suggested Processes > Enable alerts or add to owner/expert/champion dashboard

    When a user suggests a process for another team to write, it would be ideal if the suggested Expert/Owner received an email alert so they can review. Alternatively, the suggested process is added to the Owner/Expert dashboards.

    IF an expert/owner is not specified when a user suggests a new processes, then a group should be required, so an alert can be sent to the Group Champion for follow up. Alternatively, it is added to the Champions dashboard.

  16. 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.

  18. Lazy Approval Token

    I encountered a situation with a customer in which the Lazy Approval Token contained an offensive word. I recommend creating the ability to screen the alpha character token for offensive words or create the ability for the token to be a numeric value.

  20. 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
