  • Hi,

    Nintex has a advantage in that it is more user-friendly with its graphical drag-and-drop components, and it can be accessed and edited directly from a SharePoint list or library. It is easier to visualize what you are creating.You also create workflows directly in the browser and don't need any additional software on your PC.However you need to setup nintex environment on your farm.

    As far as SPD workflows are concerned, they do not involve licensing so it comes free. 

    Please refer to link below:

  • I'll over simplify here, but here's how I see Nintex Wofkflow (and I'm not a Nintex employee).

    You're standing in front of jet engine and you only have a wrench to deal with it (SharePoint Designer).

    Nx WF will provide you with a complete toolbox, all the user manuals and a very active community to help you fix, maintain and make the best use of your jet engine (the SharePoint workflow engine). It also provides a very user friendly interface to intercat with the engine parts.

    Now having said that you don't want everybody to start messing around with your jet engine otherwise its performances might not always be the same as before.

    We did have a couple of occasion were one workflow badly design with a stupid double loop kind of brought our SharePoint down (had 122 blocked processes in SQL waiting for the wf to complete).

    You also have K2 which is supposes to be very good but I never tested it.

  • Hi I have created nintex workflow for order approvals, I have two option calles approved and reject. If approver will take any action if Approved/rejeted the order the workflow will end and requester will notify. And I need to meet one more condition on rejection of order, that is the requester and approver need to share information contineously. So could you please help me on that which action I need to take.
