  1. Query List needs additional tests

    It would be a benefit if the Query List action included the following two additional filters:

    DOES NOT begin with
    DOES NOT contain

    The lack of these filters requires a Run If action to be included in the workflow after the Query List

  2. Add integration with Azure App Service

    With the new announcement of the Azure App Service (especially the API Apps and Logic Apps), it would be great if there was a way to integrate Nintex Workflow with the azure app service:

    • API Apps - With API apps being promoted as a way to reuse functionality across different applications it would be good if there was a way for Nintex Workflow to use API apps from the marketplace as well as API apps built by the organisation. Given that API apps use swagger, it would make the configuration experience similar to that provided via other Nintex Workflow Actions.

  3. Workflow action 'On-page reference' to jump from one action to another

    Need a new Workflow Action that will allow the flow to go from one action to another action.

    This will be useful for the following scenarios:
    1. Large workflows - if your process flow needs to go from one process to another and if there's a need to skip the processes that you don't want to be executed

    1. Execute the same set of actions - if you have an approval process that does the same set of actions but without the limitations of User Defined Actions (UDA).

  4. calculate date

    In the calculate date action, it would be good to be able to add(delete) a number of days/weeks/months like it currently does, but at the same time SET the hour/minute for example. This would make the "use time action executed" more usable in calculation of 'wait until' dates.

    So my calculate date action could be:
    NewDate = 5pm on (Current Date Ignoring Time + 2 Days)

  5. Decommsion AD User (updated so it can delete users with ExchangeActiveSync objects beneath)

    Current "Decommsion AD user" fails when user object has objects beneath for example ExchangeActiveSyncDevice items.

    Using ADSIedit users that cannot be deleted has this container beneath: CN=ExchangeActiveSyncDevices

    Using powershell, this doesn't Work:
    Remove-ADUser

    While this does:
    get-aduser -identity $UserSamAccountName | Remove-ADObject -Recursive -confirm:$false

  6. Secure Site template with Create site action

    We use customized site template. We want End users to be able to create sub site but using only our site template. Right now the “ Create Site” action doesn’t enable us to enforce only one site template. We need a way to tell Nintex or secure OOB site template so that end users can only see certain site templates.

  8. Archive list item action

    Some of the list contains more than 5000 items and cause the list view have issue to display items, error message in the list show: This view cannot be displayed because it exceeds the list view threshold (5000 items) enforced by the administrator.

    Wish to have the action that are able to archive any list without the fields configuration like create list item. And it would be good that the action is able to save the current list as template and create on behalf with the name that user specific in action.
    Because I would like archive every column with…

  9. Select Attachment control of NF in Notification Send action

    Attachment control function was added to the recent version Nintex Forms, so the function that Attachment control of Nintex Forms form can be selected when attached files are set in Notification Send action is feasible?

  10. Identify user that is submitting the form via workflow email

    Our helpdesk system uses active directory to identify our users based on their email addresses. We cannot do this for any of our forms because Nintex uses the default SharePoint email (no-reply@sharepoint.com) for the "From" field instead of the user that is actually submitting the form. I believe that you have this feature in the on-prem version of Nintex. PLEASE make this available for O365.

    A simple checkbox in the "Send an Email" workflow action that allows us to choose whether emails go out as no-reply@sharepoint.com or as the actual user would be awesome.

    Thanks

  12. Set list level permissions

    I have had the need with several client projects to set permissions on an entire list temporarily and then reset back to the default. For example, a user kicks off the WF in List A. Part of the WF is to create
    an item in List B where that user does not have contribute access.

    We have been using the Run as WF Owner option, but then the item that is created shows a different user than the requestor in the Created By column which is confusing for the end-users.

  13. Parallel All CRM Action's Server name "https"

    This suggestion about CRM Actions.

    1.requests for feature enhancements action.
    All CRM actions.

    2.request detail.
    Please parallel https.

    3.Reason.
    If CRM's URL begin "http", we can connect, but any environment can't connect http.(It can only https.)
    If we can't use http (only https), we want to use Nintex Workflow.

  15. String function

    Hi Michael,
    I just spoke to the person who reported the Nintex problem. He said that the string function worked after adding the {TextStart} and (TextEnd} around the value, but string functions should work on their own and should not require extra tags for them to work. Having to remember this every time is not practical. You may wish to pass this on to Nintex developers for consideration.

  18. Settings/Configuration for all tasks should be the same and Deputy in Tasks

    It would be nice, if all the Task will have the same Features.

    • In Flexi Tasks I'm not allowed to hide the item properties ont the Task site.
    • In Flexi Task I miss to ask for data like in Request Data. It would be great to be able to choose a Flexi Task, ask for an Input and choose the outcomes.
    • There is although no Action ID in Flexi Task that can be stored and used with other Actions.

    • In Request Data there I miss the "Edit Settings for" in Notification and in Required Notification.

    • It would be although great…

  19. Prevent workflow from starting new workflow instance of current workflow

    Remove the workflow action "Start a Workflow" of the current workflow.

    We had a user create a workflow "Workflow A" and the first step in the workflow was "start Workflow A". There needs to be a filter/configuration that prevents this as an option because became an endless recursive workflow instance. We removed the workflow, deleted the workflow, delete the item and then the list and this workflow still kept going. We then stopped the timer job and restarted IIS and this was still occurring. The ultimate fix was lock access to the site collection containing the item that the workflow…

  20. Create Permission Groups in the Create Site Action

    In the Create Site Action, you can set whether to inherit permissions or not and set an owner. Why not be able to choose the name of permission groups you want created and the sharepoint level of permission that group should have on the site you are creating? Would really like this!
