For the overview of Nintex Workflows, we’ve created a custom list app called “Help Desk.”
New columns were created to the custom list.
Here is the out-of-the-box SharePoint form for the custom list app – Help Desk.
You create a new Nintex Workflow from the Workflow Settings located in the list app’s menu ribbon.
You can easily drag and drop workflow actions onto the design canvas which is visual – WYSIWYG.
As with Nintex Forms, you can save, publish, export, and import your work.
You access your existing workflow similar to accessing new workflows.
Click on “Is Ticket Non-Critical?”
The WYSIWYG tool makes development quick and easy. Every workflow action has a configuration that easily accessed.
Once you open the configuration of the workflow action, you modify its settings to do what you need that action to do.
Calculate dates on the fly.
Update list items.
Send email notifications and customize who they are sent to dynamically.
Disable workflow actions while you’re testing or developing new steps.
Assign tasks, integrate with calendars, etc.
Wait for events to happen before preceding to the next steps of the workflow.
Run actions in parallel.
One of the more powerful features is the State Machine. This allows you to have more complex workflows that are not necessarily sequential. The state machine allows you to move back and forth and switch through various states.
Various actions to interact with lists and libraries.
Logic and flow workflow actions.
Various Operations workflow actions.
Various user interactions workflow actions.
Integration with other systems.
