Underwhelmed

I have used Nintex on-prem for quite a few years, and am having my first experience with Nintex O365 and am seriously underwhelmed.  I understand the challenges of shifting to a Cloud platform, but the product is a few years old now and it still has some massive holes.  Looking back through the history of feature requests, there are some fundamental issues/requests that attract a lot of community interest, but there are no fixes for them.  It would almost look like the product had been abandoned, but we did get some pretty new icons the other day.  /sarc

 

My main gripes are:

- for a workflow to edit the permissions of a list item, highly-credentialed passwords need to be entered in plain text

- There is no graphical workflow debugging

- The Initial Email of task assignments is buggy: emails take 15-20mins or don't come at all or come without bodies or can't be edited in the workflow

- There's no way to edit the lazy approval text

 

Happy to be proven wrong on any of this, but I talked the company I work for into this product and I'm quite embarrassed by it.

 

I'm trying not to be whingey, but there are some serious issues that have dragged out for years.
