Capture Workflow Approval History on SharePoint Items

This post walks you through the steps I use to surface key Workflow History details onto a SharePoint list item. So, rather than having to navigate down into the Nintex Workflow History page to see who has Reviewed/Approved/Rejected/Completed an item and any associated comments, all of those details are more readily available on the Nintex form for the SharePoint item itself. This is also a good solution to make sure that these details are not lost with the workflow history when recommended database cleanup actions are performed—automatic, scheduled, or otherwise.

SPSATL 2017 – Tips and Tricks from the Nintex Trenches

This past weekend, I had the pleasure of presenting at the 9th annual SharePoint Saturday event in Atlanta. For those who aren’t familiar, SharePoint Saturday is a community‐focused event dedicated to educating and engaging members of the local SharePoint community. The event is unique in that it is “for the community, by the community” and is free for all who attend.

Nintex and Sharegate Partner Up to Move Customers to Office 365

“Can I move my Nintex workflows from on-premise to O365?”

Recently, this is the question we have been hearing more and more frequently from clients and potential clients.

If you are considering moving from something like SharePoint 2010 or 2013 to Office 365 OR if you are considering a hybrid environment (where you maintain both on-prem and cloud implementations of SharePoint) you might have had the same question.

Up until now, the answer has been a simple “No”. But with the announcement last week of a new partnership between Nintex and Sharegate, the answer will soon be “Yes!” Continue reading “Nintex and Sharegate Partner Up to Move Customers to Office 365”
