  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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\":\"))[^"]+

    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"
