  2. Add "Reply To" field to action "Send notification"

    Companies often doesn't allow to send notifications with random sender address. It would be really helpful to be able to define a "reply to" address, so that recipients can easily reply to the sender of the received notification e-mails. Otherwise the reply address is always the globally defined sender address.

  3. Add Sharepoint date fields to Start Event "SharePoint - Update list item"

    Start Events will not let you pick any date fields from a SharePoint List to kick off an event. Power Automate has this feature built in. Nintex requires that I create two additional SharePoint fields for EVERY date field I want to monitor to kick off a workflow.

  4. Provide an option to update multiple processes Owners/Experts in bulk

    Changes in a company can mean many users are moved or transfer to different roles.
    It would be easier to be able to provide a CSV with all the Changes of Owner and Experts for a simple mass change. Other wise if you require to change both from 2 people to 2 other people, it's a very labor intensive task.

  5. String Manipulation

    On Nintex workflow Cloud, it should be great to have an action to manipulate strings.
    Operations like "lowercase", "uppercase", "trim" etc... should be available in the tool instead of working with external functions to cover this gap.

    Thanks

  6. How do you avoid to get phished by mails look look like Nintex

    You receive an email that looks like an email from your Nintex workflow. But how can you be sure it's from Nintex?
    You can't validate the sender.
    Wouldn't it be desirable to have an email signed with an official certificate? If you care about security, you can check it at the email gateway, if you don't care, you can ignore it on your e-gateway.
    Especially with "lazy approval" links in the Nintex email this makes sense.

  7. 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.

  8. Create an action in Nintex Workflow O365 to retrieve the SharePoint internal workflow status.

    Please add a workflow action item to retrieve the SharePoint internal workflow status so that end user can see the progress/status of the workflow whether it got started, in progress, suspended, or terminated.

  11. Capturing everything from the lazy approval: sender, cc, bcc fields and attachments

    The sender email address could be used to know who approved. The cc and bcc could be used for delegation or any other process. The attachments, like the comments, should be attached to the related workflow task (we use another workflow to attach them to the related item).

  12. Mantain the format of a Content Control when copying the data using the read document action from a word document or file into a list item c

    When using the Read Document action of a Word document for the Content Controls, the format of the controls is passed as plain and it doesn't contain any format when creating an item based on that content control.

  14. Add Write Protect on/off switch to action "Update List Item"

    We're using a workflow to review/release documents to modify the status accordingly through action "Update List Item" (approved = "Validated", rejected = "Draft"). Once approved the document should be protected from further accidental/intentional changes (ISO 9001 requirement). Adding this option to the action "Update List Item" would allow Sharepoint to be used for "controlled documents" in the sense of the norm.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
