Another interesting question today, on how to convert a Nintex Form into any type of document. I thought the easiest would be to go to HTML. Rather than building the entire HTML in the Nintex Workflow, I decided to create a template HTML file. Store ... read more

I've talked about the Log in the History List action when using Nintex Workflow on-premise and how to extend it by building a User Defined Action so that you can log a lot more than what the action allows. This post is about doing something similar ... read more

Since the inception of Nintex Workflow and Nintex Forms for Office 365, I've had the question around how long does it take to install and configure the apps. I thought it's about time I put together a video showing how easy it is to install and... read more

Now that everyone has become acquainted with the new SFDC Connector for Nintex workflow we can discuss what you need to actually start building workflows that can tie it all together. Keep in mind, the initial SFDC Connector actions revolve around CRUD operations with SFDC’s CRM and Social (Chatter) platform. That said, I won’t get into […]

Scenario Quote (Nintex Connect, Peter Behler): “Currently we use a lot of forms, InfoPath forms for forms libraries. Previously I was using webservices […]

As I had mentioned in my last post, Nintex unveiled a slew of new Nintex Live actions (DocuSign,, Dynamics CRM) for Nintex Workflow last month. Whether you’re new to (which I will refer to as SFDC going forward so that my fingers don’t go numb and / or bleed due to typing out […]

Between a fair amount of events (SKO’s, WPC and more!), I’ve been all over the place the past few weeks but I felt now would be a great time to stop and synthesize (Good Lord, how I love corporate double speak!) all of the great stuff I’ve been exposed to over the past month with […]

Don't free users from needing to code like a developer. Free them from having to think like one.

This question comes up fairly often, and it may seem like a no brainer but here it is any way.. You have a workflow and it is calling an external web service.. Now for whatever reason the call has failed.. A 99% of the time this has nothing to do with the workflow itself, it […]

When it comes to automating business processes or even just evaluating a business process to determine if it should be automated, my counterpart (the venerable Vadim Tabakman) and I are often asked; How do I perform X action? What if I want to pass Y data along to a specific person or system? Whenever I […]

This blog post comes out of a question I was recently asked by our amazing support team. Scenario A company maintains a SharePoint list for job applications.

Q. How can I validate controls on a Nintex Form?

A. There are two ways.  You can create a Validation Rule.  That's the easiest way. Then, you can open the settings of a control and there is a Validation section you can expand.  There are a number of ways to validate there, even down to building a JavaScript function.
