  2. SQL Request Control in task form does not populate the existing list column values

    Currently the SQL Request Control is able to capture existing list column value when open in edit mode in List Item form, but in Task form it is not pre-populating the original values from the list column. This is the major drawback when we use multi-level approvals with SQL Request control.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Universal Workflows

    With universal forms be announced at Xchange, to complete the loop we need universal workflows as well. As the workflow functionality often defines which environment that can be used especially those on-prem and want to move but can’t due to functionality limitations.

  8. 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.

  9. Allow for customization of actionable messages

    It would be great if actionable messages in task actions were customizable. We require the ability to swap out the Nintex logo with our own corporate logo.

    We would also like the ability to include additional fields in the task email beyond "description and due date" and change the order fields as required.

    In a nutshell, we're looking for greater flexibility. Thanks!

  10. 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…

  15. Dynamic Document Template Location Within Document Generation

    Please allow the ability to specify a dynamic template location through the use of a path variable. At present, in the Document Generation workflow action, you must select a specific file as the template.

    I need the ability to append random documents (from a location only known at runtime) to a generated document.

  16. 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.

  19. Find Variable or Text

    There are some other great suggestions for documentation of variables, but I would also like to see a way in the designer to highlight actions that use a variable. I envision a Search button in the ribbon that opens a search dialog where I could either select a variable from the list of variables in this workflow, or simply type something in a text box. The feature would search the workflow and highlight all the actions that use the variable or contain the text.

    The suggestion for finding and removing unused variables (https://nintex.uservoice.com/forums/229405-1-nintex-workflow-for-sharepoint/suggestions/10843149-find-and-remove-unused-variables) identifies the scenario of trying…

  20. Start or End Workflow (Locally / On Another Site / On Another List)

    While we have the ability to Start / End a workflow on the local list, the only option we have for starting a Workflow on another Site or List is to use a Web Service Request.

    This is terribly convoluted, and extremely inconvenient (especially if there are questions of authentication) for new users.

    It would be much nicer if we could have the ease of just pulling an Action into our Designer and being able to configure it much like you would configure any of the other actions that can interact with Off List items.

    Furthermore, please give us the…
