  3. Enabling error handling in Nintex online actions

    Nintex workflows for O365 does not have error handling feature for many actions. The typical behavior at SP2013 is that user can choose to handle errors for certain actions. In office 365, Nintex provide a flag for subset of actions. This flag determines weather action succeeded or not.

    Such actions are:
    1. Web Request
    2. Query XML
    3. Update XML
    4. Create item in another site
    5. Delete multiple items
    6. Update multiple items

  4. 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…

  5. Ability to provide link instead of attachment

    It would be great if we could provide a link to the dynamic document within the body of the email, rather than sending a pdf attachment. Many platforms are going in this direction as it helps with delivery rates, addresses compliance risk, etc.

  6. Update Nintex Workflow Scheduler to track performance of scheduled workflows

    We need an easier way to view performance of scheduled workflows. The Nintex Workflow Scheduler is single threaded, which means that when a single workflow takes a long time to complete, it causes delay to other scheduled workflows. The Nintex provided process for identifying long-running, scheduled, workflows is to enable verbose logging and to comb through hundreds of lines to see when each workflow starts and finishes. If verbose was not enabled when your delay started, there is no mechanism to see which workflows caused it. Best case, I would like to see a dashboard or nwadmin command to retrieve…

  10. Perform a start-up check against the version of the Nintex database

    Nintex 2013 lacks a start-up check against the version of the Nintex database. Nintex designer should not load and workfows should not execute if the database schema – or any other component – SharePoint, Windows, even browser – is not the exact version supported (or later).

  12. Distinct Values for Dropdown List

    Can Nintex include a checkbox to provide distinct values in the dropdown control? Currently we must go to great pains to eliminate the duplicates, and this functionality is something that dropdown lists in other platforms and designers have included for years.

  13. 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. Create AD User Over SSL (LDAPS)

    Would love to see the Create an AD User action have advanced options (just like the Query LDAP action) to specify the authentication types such as None, Secure, Encryption, SecureSocketsLayer, ReadonlyServer, Anonymous, FastBind, ServerBind. The most crucial one would be SecureSocketsLayer as more and more organisations are using LDAPS to enhance security on their environment.

  15. Admin Console

    I have worked with other workflow engines and found one important features missing in Nintex. We should have one admin console to view all the running ,closed and error workflows and should be an option to restart the error workflow from any stage.This will be very grateful for admin.

  16. Change LazyApproval name in History

    We have a lot of executives who complain about seeing approved by "LazyApporval" in workflow history. This looks really bad and unprofessional. Can you please change the wording in history to "EmailApporval" rather than "LazyApproval" or allow it to be customized?

  17. AutoSave in Forms/Workflow Designer

    what would be great is to allow for the Nintex Designer to AutoSave forms and workflows every 10/15 minutes, so in case the browser freezes or you accidentally press back, you can go back to the most recently saved design. similar to how MS Word autosaves documents...

  18. Allow Anonymous User Submissions to Trigger Workflow Start

    In an extranet environment, we are allowing anonymous users to submit items to SharePoint lists.

    We wish to have workflows start on these items, but at present workflows set to "start on creation" will not start when anonymous users have submitted.

    To get around this, we must comb with a site workflow and run list level workflows pretty much hourly.
