We took a chance on Nintex--now everyone wants it.

Pros and Cons

  • Nintex forms drive User Adoption as they can be beautifully branded.
  • Nintex workflows are intuitive to end-users. It is simple and easy for them to start using them.
  • Nintex workflows are very scalable. We have simple Send for Approval workflows as well as highly complex workflows using multiple state machines.
  • It is easy to draw a process using BPMN and then map it to the workflow steps.
  • It would be good to have even more online training available.
  • Some kind of on-premises version of Hawkeye would be useful--it's currently hard to monitor the on-prem usage of workflows.
  • There don't seem to be any official training books available. All the training is bits and pieces. There seems to be no curriculum, which would be useful.

Review of Nintex Workflows and Forms Platform

Score 7 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Business process automation
  • Ability for business users to create simple workflows themselves.
  • Previous values of list columns should be available inside the workflows too, instead of just as starting conditions.
  • Error handling is sometimes not clear enough, can be made more robust.

Pros and Cons

  • The form design is quick and relatively simple to use.
  • The ability to view data on the site and report stats on selected data points
  • Speed: Slowness to load a form and for the workflow statuses to change
  • It would be great to have a wizard to build workflows (e.g., type of actions: approve, reject, or return for revisions?).

Nintex forms lover.

Pros and Cons

  • Lotus Notes makes it easy to use EUC for input forms that have been built by developers.
  • The instructions are simply a list of features. Please provide specific examples.
  • There are undocumented specifications.
  • For example, if there is a mistake in the rule setting, it is simply skipped instead of being displayed as an error.
  • For example, the application of a rule may change depending on the order in which the controls are placed.
  • There's even more that can be done if the repetition control can be made to more easily reference and update data from other lists.

The unvarnished opinion

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Branching logic in forms - This allows for a single form to cover related processes depending on choices made in the form.
  • Seamless integration with Office 365, allowing us to drive actions in the workflow based on item changes in SharePoint Online
  • The fact that it uses a separate service to offload the processing power instead of having to provide it as part of our organization.
  • The new licensing structure can be confusing.
  • The workflow canvas can get unwieldy to use as the workflow steps and branches expand.
  • More builtin connections to more 3rd party services for data.

Nintex works well at our fire department

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Approve/reject requests - form is auto-created. Workflow build is fast.
  • Email notifications - simple and fast.
  • Reminders for approval - easy to set up and insures action as required.
  • Getting the name of the responder to an assigned task is cumbersome. Requires strong extraction from string variable as opposed to just reading the name.
  • Determining if a particular document entry is the first or not is fairly complicated. You have to query the list, loop and add to the collection and then count items in the collection to determine how many entries have been made.

Tales of Nintex

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Scheduled workflows and reminders work seamlessly. On a weekly basis, we have several of these workflows running without glitches
  • Our help desk ticketing workflow and form used to assign, and resolve tickets works.
  • We create document review workflows, by copying documents from one subsite to another subsite to maintain discretion in reviews and permissions, while keeping the link between the 2 libraries/documents on different subsites in order to respond back appropriately.
  • Action Items workflow and form. This workflow is used by upper management to assign tasks with deadlines, ability to reassign, complete and close out the assignment. This allows us to track metrics for reporting purposes as well and the form allows us to lock down fields per status.
  • The biggest drawback with Nintex online platform is lack of error handling and notification on suspended or failed workflows, even with Hawk-Eye it is not very helpful since it is not integrated.
  • The lack of versioning in workflows limits the ability to revert back to previous working versions during development, even with the export functionality it is not always viable.
  • The online environment does get unstable at times, there have been times where accessing and publishing forms and workflows been major issues.
  • One missing functionality that is in other similar products is the ability to make views visible based on assigned tasks.

Amazing Platform, Quick Development!

Score 10 out of 10

Pros and Cons

  • Creation of tasks: There is a variety of tasks you can use out of the box with Nintex and it's nice to be able to create custom task notifications.
  • Notifications: The send notification action is great and makes it easy to customize the verbiage and all parts of the message.
  • Updating list items has never been easier than with Nintex! It's so much more powerful than the standard SharePoint Designer workflows. I'm not sure I could go back, because Nintex has opened my eyes to all that is available with workflows!
  • Ease of use: With all the actions available in Nintex, I'm doing things I never could have imagined doing with workflows in SharePoint. It has given me a new challenge as I thought I'd reached the end of what I could do with SharePoint customization.
  • Make it easier to copy data from formulas and other similar boxes. Anytime I try that the references get lost.
  • Better troubleshooting: This has always been an issue with SharePoint Development in general. The only way I have to debug workflows is to log variables to the history log. Can't someone just tell me what the problem is?
  • Migration: Is Nintex planning to develop a migration tool? Many organizations have Nintex, but have to purchase another third party tool. That would make the Nintex suite even more valuable to it's users!

Pros and Cons

  • Visual Visio-like workflow designs.
  • Dynamic email generation.
  • SharePoint list integration.
  • The web-based interface for designing workflows is extremely slow, and often unresponsive.
  • Formatting of emails in the WYSIWYG GUI is very difficult. Copy/pasting doesn't work as one would expect, and I often find myself having to edit the raw HTML in order to suss out why certain objects are formatted the way they are.
  • Error reporting on why a particular workflow has failed is incredibly difficult to decipher.

Pros and Cons

  • Contractor approval process.
  • Visitor registration.
  • Pay increase authorization and approval.
  • Camera authorization and approval.
  • SQL control only return one value, rather than a table which could be queried after only one call to the database.
  • In some cases we have to use JavaScript to accomplish seemingly simple validations that should be an option in the control.
  • It needs an easier way to handle the user ID field that returns back as “i:o#.w|DOMAIN\username.”
