Nintex Workflow for Office 365 Preview

With the exciting recent news about SharePoint 2013 – and Office 2013 – there is also a new preview for Office 365 – using the new SharePoint bits.    I have a demo/preview tenant site – and exploring the various ‘apps’ that can be added from the SharePoint store.

Today (!) there was a release from Nintex – with a Platform Preview.

Here’s how to get started with it :

  • Within your Office 365 SharePoint site, just click the “Add an App” link :

  • Click on “SharePoint Store” on the left hand side.
  • The big orange icon is for Nintex

  • Simply click “Add It”

  • You need to click “Trust It” also

  • The feature is now “activated” and can be used within libraries – and/or site workflows

If you jump into a document library – you’ll see the Nintex Workflow icon :

The new designer is very slick – and includes many activities for building workflows.

There is also a section with activities from “Nintex Live” :

  • Bing language detection
  • Bing text to speech
  • Bing translation
  • Facebook wall post
  • Google URL shortener
  • Google weather
  • StrikeIron IP lookup
  • StrikeIron exchange rate and currency converter
  • Twitter Tweet
  • WordPress new blog post
  • Yammer message

As well as Office 365 activities such as Check-In, Check-Out, Create Site, Delete item, etc.

I tried out the “post-to-FaceBook” activity – and had to simply ‘allow’ the Nintex app to post to FaceBook (via an email notification) :

…. and then it landed on my FaceBook wall :

With the designer and activities being hosted via Microsoft/Nintex/Azure, they’ll be able to update with new activities automatically – and will be available to all tenants/users.

This is a really (REALLY) cool new addition for Office 365 – bringing Workflow to the cloud – damn cool !

    Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m lookingg to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time deciding
    between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then mostt blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.

    P.S Sorry for gettong off-topic but I had to
    ask!
