Review for Nintex Workflow only

2019-12-03

Overall Nintex workflow has allowed us to streamline several business processes (including RMA, Shipping document creation, etc. ) in our manufacturing environment.

Pros

Visual workflow tool that is easier to use and troubleshoot that standard SPD workflows.

Cons

Software is fine despite unexpected canceled workflows with poor guidance on why it canceled.

As a Business Process "Swiss Army Knife" it's flexible, - but best for small projects.

2021-01-05

There is a learning curve to developing Nintex forms and we still needed to leverage JavaScript substantially, but the development effort is still generally less than straight web-form development. The workflow tool is also fairly easy to use.

Pros

Nintex workflows support

Cons

There are also some serious drawbacks and complications to using Nintex/SharePoint workflows for high volume workflows, - including the need to regularly purge workflow history lists and workflow data.

My experience on Nintex

2020-07-06

using Nintex workflows actually helped fixed alot of bad habits in my company, for example the incorrect approval compliance, the waste of printing alot of papers and forms, which also saved alot of storage space just because we needed to keep some documents for a certain period of time

Pros

I have been using Nintex for a few years, love how great it is integrated with SharePoint, well considering that is where Nintex started;) during the years, I have digitallized a lot of my system within my company, e.g. the HR system I built using Nintex including leave hiring and onboarding. Also alot of different approval system within the company.

Cons

When using nintex with sharepoint, sometimes the permission settings between SharePoint and Nintex can be quite tricky, and may leads to some workflow errors for less experienced administrator, hopthere maybe some features in the future allowing nintex to deploy the permission to sharepoint automatically

My first involvement with Nintex

2019-11-22

We purchased Nintex to make workflows easy but when we were looking to automate document control with SharePoint and Nintex the task seemed a little daunting.

Pros

It is so well integrated with SharePoint. I have also been amazed at the willingness of Nintex product engineers to provide webinars, help and best practice advice. They took us from 0 - 60 in a few weeks.

Cons

I have not seen anything to dislike so far but it is complex and I'm pleased we have technical support.

Good product with poor account management

2019-12-27

This review is for the Nintex Workflows on-prem server licenses.

Pros

The workflow design canvas also works as a documentation platform for the project release or even the audit review.

Cons

There is so much drama on the account / license management side of Nintex, which really ruins the reputation of their products.

Nintex is a true enterprise platform.

2021-07-27

Early on, with no training, there were some advanced workflow items that I found difficult to do, but with the many platform updates and upgrades, things are much easier to accomplish.

Pros

Nintex makes creating forms and workflows easy.

Cons

Would love better permissions on SharePoint forms and a simple way to close tasks from the original form.

Nintex Forms provides a low-cost solution

2018-08-21

Testing to deploy field forms to multiple users to provide efficiency in out-of-office data collection.

Pros

Low-cost, as we can deploy forms to multiple users without individual subscription fees (as some forms software providers require).

Cons

Steep learning curve, interface is not overly difficult, but using advanced features (such as repeating sections) takes some time to learn.
