- editing large workflows
- The initial learning curve, despite it not being too steep
- Re-learning the new system compared to the old workflow version
- Capabilities including analytics, document generation, and app UI design are bit difficult from workflow dashboard.
- Transitioning from on-prem to cloud.
- Nintex Responsive design tends to slow down if the form gets too large.
- I wish Nintex Responsive forms allowed for code.
- Nothing really difficult or cumbersome just all purposed systems don't work on a regular basis
- not sure when or for who the Mobile ap is going to work
- persons report data entered is not completely entered or uploaded later - not sure if this is an Nintex problem or user error
- The basic triggers in Nintex online are not the same as they were on-prem. Users can easily get stuck in the "trigger loop" of trying to figure out which menu sequence locks in on the current item.
- Nintex online was built to connect to large backend business systems as it was initially built, so the core functionality of WIP tracking, approvals, and notifications is somewhat obscured / underdeveloped in the Nintex Online platform.
- Nintex online hasn't done much work to meaningfully differentiate itself from Microsoft Flow. On-prem Nintex was a clear winner (the competency is there in the platform, but the switch to online / O365 appears to be more of a setback than a leap forward).
- The InfoPath integration is a bit clunky. Nintex can't read the InfoPath form, only SharePoint, so the form must promote the fields needed into SharePoint in order for Nintex Workflow to access them. Sometimes data types (especially names in Active Directory) are difficult to do this with.
- The approval processes requires users to navigate to another screen in SharePoint to approve a task. This can be a problem especially when users are approving a form, since they need to view the form separately then go back to their email and then to SharePoint to complete the approval. A workaround can be created in InfoPath using a web service to auto-complete the task from a button on the form, but it isn't very elegant or intuitive.
- There are some timing issues that require workarounds, such as adding pauses in between certain steps. This is due to some actions being handled in batch by Microsoft separately from actions handled in batch by Nintex.
- Debugging errors.
- Updating items in a list
- Knowing what input to expect
- The LDAP query is not easy to comprehend or configure.
- A lot of Nintex workflows are based on SharePoint profiles. Pulling data can be cumbersome of cause workflow errors if the user does not have a properly configured SharePoint profile.
