Nintex features, migration and what you should know
Working with the Territory Manager has been quite difficult. We had to deploy our deployment due to server issues, but had the migration keys already. Even though we have a software assurance package and only needed 2 more weeks, they asked us to pay an extra $2300 to extend the temporary license for another 2 weeks. We chose not to extend the temporary license, and simply move over to the new keys, but they're still asking for more money. The functionality we receive for the price -- not worth it.
Additionally, if you are planning on migrating from SharePoint 2010 to 2013, watch out. The company is quite adamant about not providing migration licenses past 15 days AND make any transition incredibly difficult.
The best workflow tool for SharePoint - PERIOD.
This is an amazing package. It allows completely code-free control over SharePoint workflow. If you have any experience using the Visual Studio interface to program SharePoint, you will appreciate just how complex SharePoint workflow coding can be, and Nintex Workflow for SharePoint eliminates this complexity. The product itself can appear quite complex at first, because it has a huge array of elements available to define custom workflows. But once you've been introduced to the basics, it's really quite straightforward. The product is elegantly designed and deeply integrated with SharePoint. My only reservation is with the pricing - licensing can be expensive. But the value is substantial.
Simple, graphical interface for workflow definition
Licensing can be expensive
Powerful Tool, but not the right fit for some...
All in all it's a great product if you want something to improve the User Interfaces of standard Workflows in SharePoint.
This tool has become indispensable to us
Well worth it
We've been using for a year with almost no problems. The one some issue we had (related to dates in different timezones being set wrong) was quickly addressed by the technical support.
Workflow in the hands of the Power User
This is one of the important tools that most of the companies should look to invest if they want to take advantage of the Workflows with no code approach.
will protect you from Microsoft self inflicted issues
Easy to learn and impllement by power users
Nintex Workflow for SharePoint 2007
I would recommend Nintex, but I wouldn't recommend buying their extended support. Definitely not worth the money.
For fairly simple workflows, it is fantastic.
When there is an issue, support is slow, doesn't follow up and then does now more than saying "put in a pause" or if you have pauses, they say "take out the pauses", but eventually you either stop using that particular thing or figure it out yourself. Don't count on their support at all.
A great workflow tool for end users
This is a great workflow tool to supplement SharePoint. It is easy to use and very powerful in features.
2. Great UI, fully integrated with SharePoint
3. Covers most of the use cases in normal business activities
4. Geat user support
5. Reasonable license price
6. Mulit-lingual support
Nintex Workflow 2010
Nintex is the best scalable integrated solution which speeds up Workflow design.
It is making use of standard workflow engine.
That seems to become better with the SP 2013 app model and the Nintex app.
