Nintex Workflow for Sharepoint

Overall Satisfaction with Nintex Platform

The output of Nintex-powered workflows is being used by our whole organization, but only a small handful of people actually use the Nintex administration interface. It is primarily used to orchestrate workflows from SharePoint lists and inform department reps of internal changes and staff onboarding.
  • 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.
  • Once our process is in place, it has allowed our workflows to automate a large portion of our daily activities.
  • If we ever need to edit our workflows, the act of using Nintex is just cumbersome.
SharePoint Online/O365. Its relevance is becoming less and less important. With newer enterprise-wide tools becoming available, our current workflow processes will likely be redesigned and moved elsewhere.
Users interact with SharePoint lists, which then kick off a series of emails and/or tickets to other non-IT users. Non-IT staff does not administer the Nintex interface.
It's plenty capable of orchestrating workflows and email generation, but the interface being used to design that process leaves much to be desired.
