  1. Set Security Permission for Active Directory items

    We would like to create Shared Exchange Mailboxes with Nintex Workflows.

    Creating a user in Active Directory and provision the account in Exchange ist working. But it is not possible to set the "Send as" Security Permission for the item.

    Please provide an action to modify Active Directory Security settings

  2. 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.

  4. You know, I think error logic as a whole is backwards. I think actions should only 'break' the workflow when they are instructed to do so.

    You know, I think error logic as a whole is backwards. I think actions should only 'break' the workflow when they are instructed to do so.

    I am using a Copy Item Action which (for me) does not have error handling and it is doing exactly what I want it to do but halting the workflow on an error which I now have to manage.

    Alternatively, a checkbox in the Action that simply ignored errors might suffice.

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. When date/time variable is written to history log, local/utc flag is not taken into account

    let’s have a datetime workflow variable where output of Date calculation action is stored.
    If such a datetime variable is written to the workflow history log, it doesn’t respect what kind of date (local/UTC) it holds.

    I have defined my base datetime value as: 20.04.2018 17:25

    I have supplied it to Calculate date action as input and configure the action to consider it being LOCAL time (GMT+2 in my case) and add all the zeros.
    I’ve got correct ISO string output => ISOlocal: 2017-04-20T15:25:00Z
    I’ve got correct Date output (source time was in local time zone, so no difference expected)…

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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…

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. 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…

  17. Run PowerShell script AND pass workflow constant or variable values

    It would be very helpful if workflows can run a PowerShell script that is ran on a server and pass on workflow constant and variable values as well. We have in the past used a custom solution that has the same ability on multiple client projects and have proven it to be very useful, I believe it's about time for Nintex to add this as one of their supported workflow actions.

  20. 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.
