Amazing Platform, Quick Development!
Nintex Workflow for Sharepoint
Overall Satisfaction with Nintex Platform
- 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!
- Nintex has really opened up some great avenues of development for me. I am not a "down in the weeds" coder so it's an ideal platform for me to create custom SharePoint solutions.
- In my role, my only business objective is to provide quality support to my users, so I cannot provide hard numbers as I'm not sure how to quantify that. I can say that my users are very happy with the support and solutions I provide through the Nintex platform.
First of all, I didn't select Nintex for my organization. Some smart person made that decision before I arrived. If I am ever in a position to choose a third party SharePoint development platform for a company I work for it will DEFINITELY be Nintex.
The only other development tools I've ever used with SharePoint were SharePoint Designer and InfoPath. Comparing those to Nintex is like comparing a Ford Pinto to a Ferrari. Sure, you can pick up your groceries in both, but the Ferrari is much faster, sleeker, and stylish.
